U Hotel Fifth Avenue
Ranked #281 of 470 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed May 24, 2013

The hotel location was perfect for us within walking distance to everything we wanted to see and do (shoping, central park, empire state building). Staff was very friendly and the rooms clean.
The rooms was very small and the AC took up quite some space also, but we had read about it so it did not come as a suprise.

I would recommend this hotel to everyone who can accept the small rooms and want to stay at a very good location in NY (our plan was to see as much of NY as possible so only time we spent in room was for sleeping and taking a shower).

Free WIFI which worked all the time was a plus for us.

I had no idea where to stay on my first ever visit to the US and to NYC. All I knew I didn't want to be in Brooklyn and travel to the sights every day, I wanted to be close to everything. This little boutique hotel is opposite the Empire State Building so close to subway, walking distance to major attractions and shopping areas and the Times Square.
The price is very reasonable and service is great- the staff always can recommend places to eat and things to do.The room is very small but you're in the center of NYC so who cares! It is a clean and modern place too so all one can wish on a trip to New York!

We stayed there on the 20th of may and had a reservation for 5 days but the hotel was disappointing that we left after the first day. The room size is so small ( around 9sqm) that it is hard to move. The room only consisted of a bed and the tiniest bathroom. We asked to move to a larger room but the reception desk told us all rooms were the same size. The only single thing thats good about this hotel is the location!

We selected this hotel based on previous ratings and were not disappointed. Great location. Great staff. They provided excellent recommendations for restaurants and obtained for us theater tickets. Room small but very clean and given short time we spent in the room and competitive price it was perfect for us. We will surely return. We received a free room upgrade without asking.

I spent a few nights here last fall during Hurricane Sandy. The hotel was solid. The room I stayed in was tiny, but fine for one traveler. The staff was attentive, the room was clean. There was no closet or way to hang any clothes other than some hooks on the wall...kind of inconvenient but not a deal breaker.

The location was perfect to get around, mostly going north as anything two blocks south of the hotel was without power. It was a great choice for a place to stay while I was doing some training in NYC.

I would definitely consider staying there again. Oh, and the Starbucks located next door is a nice bonus.

This is a small, European style boutique hotel located in midtown Manhattan. The location can't be beat, as it's a short walk to Penn Station, Times Square, Broadway, and Madison Ave. There's also a subway station about a block away. The rooms are small (as are many hotel rooms in Manhattan) but, for someone like me who just needs a nice bed to sleep on, it was perfect. I was able to enter the hotel and go to my room within a minute. No long lines to check in; no long waits for the elevator. The price is a good value for the area too.

Small hotel with few amenities but would certainly recommend. Yes rooms were small but perfectly adequate for price and unbeatable location. We weren't that high but didn't experience any noise, but having walked and walked, we probably would have slept through anything! Clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
