Hotel St. James

Reviewed September 10, 2013

The hotel is "quaint" and rooms are tiny but the location to Times Square is great. The bed was comfortable & clean which made me overlook the fact the rest of the hotel could use an over-haul.

The air conditioning unit was unbelievably loud. Every 2 minutes it turned on and felt like I was sleeping next to a motorcycle. The hotel could use an update as the halls, carpet and elevators are all in need of repair/replacement.

Took my three sons (20,18 & 15) to New York. We stayed in one room with two beds. The room was quite large, much larger than I thought it would be after reading other reviews. We were on the 5th floor facing a building that was being renovated. The room and bathroom was clean. The air conditioning was very welcome as well as it was so hot the week we stayed. The towels were changed everyday and the beds remade. It is very close to Time Square and everything happening. There are two diners next door and a couple of irish pubs and planet Hollywood also a few doors up. I couldn't fault the hotel, staff on reception were friendly. It would have been useful to have a fridge in the room, due to the heat and possibly even a safe, also the blinds could be looked at as the building opposite had lights left on in several rooms and they did shine in quite a lot.. Would definitely stay here again, location was brilliant and ok the view wasn't great but who goes to New York to sit in their hotel room.

Choose the hotel due to it's location (literally 2 mins walk to times square!) and great price-$120 (plus tax) a night over a labor day weekend was a steal! As expected- it was a no frills hotel room- the size of shoe box, the most basic toiletries, phone but no clock. However it was clean and front desk was friendly and helpful. Had an issue with the bathroom after coming back from exploring the city on my second day, called down to front desk and issue was resolved immediately.

Overall great place if you plan to spend most of your time out in NY city and just need a clean, safe place to sleep at a fantastic location. Will definitely consider staying here again.

This hotel is just a short walk from Times Square - but don't expect any frills at all. Even a vending or ice machine is too much to ask for ... but the rooms are clean, the water pressure is okay and there's a 24-hour deli next door that will provide any urgent items you might need. Avoid using the concierge service though - it's not affiliated with the hotel and you won't get any deals at all! Save your money with this hotel and you can spend it on all the other great attractions NYC has to offer!

I left forgotten several things in the room, I wrote an email the next morning commenting the problem and pick them up. After several days kidding me and make me go three times to the hotel the director pledged to fix the problem. I have never returned to see my stuff and do not respond to my emails.
Advertised wifi in the room and almost no signal reaches for what most of the times it does not work.

Room Tip: On the highest floors the wifi is very poor, the view from our room was a wall to 50cm of the window

I spent one week at St. James hotel, It's in the heart of Manattan. The rooms are quite clean, it's perfect if you look for an accomodation near the center.No breakfast, but there are a plenty of diners near by (two of then are actually next door to the hotel).
