We stayed here for almost a week. The location is fantastic. Only a minute away from Times Square. There are lots of good food places all around the hotel. The bathroom, bedding and towels were clean and a cleaner came in every day.
The corridors and stairs are a bit shabby but the rooms are fine.
We had a room at the back so although the view was terrible, it was quiet at night.
The rooms are warm and have no air conditioning but we left our window open a little and we comfortable.

Nice hotel just a few steps away from Times Square - just in the heart of NYC. Free Wi-fi. No restaurant, no breakfast in the hotel, but lots around. Bathroom clean, bed OK - all I needed tor a citytrip!

We chose the hotel based on its location and it didnt disappoint. Just a minute's walk from Times Square and close to plenty of decent restuarants, like Connolly's & O'Lunney's which were pretty much sports bars with great menu's. There were a couple of good Deli's next door for breakfast and snacks which we used most days. The hotel was in an area that felt safe and was relatively quiet (for New York).
Although it was an older hotel and in need of a bit of renovation, it was clean and cosy with decent sized rooms. We travelled with two teenage boys but the room and beds were comfortable and big enough. The reception & conciege were friendly and really helpful and in particular, Joey on the desk was great and had a brilliant New York accent !
The hotel is pretty basic with no bar, coffee making facilities or in-room safe, but the location is a perfect trade off. Definitely recommend it as its also a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Thjere are no decent views so ask for a room at the back which is quieter.

We stayed a week at this decent hotel. It was a bit outdated but good value for the money. Our room was ok and the kingsize bed too. Breakfast at the neighbors was fun (not included in hotel). But the best was it super location: very nearby Times Square. Really excellent!

The hotel was easy to find on 45th street. It’s a quaint hotel and everything was neat and organized in the lobby area. The check-in process was easy and the gentleman who checked us in was friendly and helpful. The location is ideal to Time Square and the many attractions in the area.
We were on the 12th floor, and my daughter was excited because we were that much closer to the Penthouse. The hotel has an elevator and gorgeous winding staircases that we took down at every chance.
The room had 2 full/queen beds with a bathroom. There were minimal decorations, which didn’t matter to me. Overall, the room was a good size, clean and served the purpose of a sleeping location for the 2 nights we stayed.
The room was not without its faults, though. First, the bed and pillows were not comfortable at all – so that was one thing that didn’t make for a great sleeping experience. Another issue was the fact that the room had no curtains. There were only the small mini blinds which did nothing for keeping light out of the room. The office building next door that kept the office lights on at night. On the first night, I had a hard time falling asleep because the lights outside and in the office building shone through the window– giving us a pretty bright nightlight all night long.
Lastly, I’ve read other reviews and I can’t be the only one that had the WORSE water pressure. I know hotels don’t have the best, but even when we tried to take a shower at night, we had minimal water pressure and lukewarm water. In the morning – forget about it – we had no hot water at all. I just wonder if all the other floors get the hot water before the 12th… Maybe next time we should ask for a room on a lower floor.
The café next store serves some quick breakfast foods – bagels, sandwiches, eggs & fresh fruit. The service is quick and the food was good. Not too far down the road is a Starbucks if that’s your liking.
