“Our 3rd visit to AKA Time Square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

The staff are what makes these apartments standout. Nothing is too much trouble and they are a wealth of knowledge. The apartments are roomy clean and the newly renovated bathrooms are just wonderful. The AKA is perfectly situated to Time square literally just steps away. From our window we could see the time ball and some of the neon signs. The fully equipt kitchen is very handy as is the washing machine and dryer for those longer stays. See you all again soon, thanks for making our visit to NYC so memorable yet again.

Rented 1 bedroom ..if staying in Manhattan for 1 week or more with a toddler.. stay here.. We can wash our clothes.. cook meals. Room was clean and a groovy patio.

PERFECT LOCATION

Just realize this. This is time square. It is busy and crowded 365 days a year 24 hours a day.

Some days can be a little loud.. but this is TIMES SQUARE! Rooms were quiet and insulated enough...
I would definitely stay here again..
Grocery store, Walgreens and everything is near by. Toys R us.. half a block.. no complaints

We stayed here in April/May 2014 for seven nights for the second time. WE love the room to move we had a one bedroom apartment with a separate kitchen dining room(67 squares which is big in New York). AKA is convenient to Times Square and plenty of good restaurants. Having a gym and a rooftop with hot coffee or tea in the mornings is great. As always we found the staff helpful.
Out is great having a full size refrigerator, washing machine and dryer.

Room Tip: Go for the one bedroom.

we ususally stay in hotels when in nyc but this time - travelling with the whole family of six - instead of booking three rooms in a pricy hotel we opted for a more family friendly alternative and found the aka via google.
the location can not be beaten: close to times square (please be aware that there are mre than one aka in nyc, one is very close to central park for example, we stayed at the aka times square) but not too noisy and relatively relaxing.
check-in was VERY efficient and the receptionists are knowledgable and super nice. they offered help in every possible way and booked tickets for us in no time and were very helpful.
the apartments can be booked with daily housekeeping services or without, the latter option meaning that housekeeping only attens to your room every 3 days which is enough when staying for a week. if anything is dirty or missing just call reception and they will bring you what you need anyway.
one day the air con wasn't working properly but was fixed instantly.
the apartments come with a washer and dryer which are perfect for a longer stay.
we had a one bedroom studio facing the street for two of us and a two bedroom suite for the remaining four family members. the bigger apartment had only one bathroom which is not too expansiive so getting all four of them ready in the morning took a while.
except for the studios all other apartments have windows facing other buildings so they are very dark even during the day.

apart from the missing daylight the bigger apartments are just geeat for a family with a big kitchen area including fridge, toaster, stove, dishwasher and coffee maker.

the gym is not worth mentioning, the aka could definitely improve here.

definitely worth considering when travelling with the family or for a longer stay.

husband and I stayed here for 8 nights in May. It was convenient to Bryant Park and the subway. Rooms were large and modern, with everything you need. washing machine, dryer, and of course the kitchen. It saved having to find a breakfast place in the morning and take it easy in the morning! would stay here again if visiting New York city.

I stayed in Aka Times Square between 22nd till 26th May 2014 with my family (2 adults and 3 children). And I can describe my stay there as expected and more!! The staff (specially Cynthia) was friendly and helpful. The apartment was clean and furniture was almost new. The proximity of the hotel around Times Square attraction made it perfect fit for people enjoying NYC.
I loved my stay and definitely will stay again.

If you are looking at a longer stay or if you are traveling with large size family, AKA is a great place to consider. Its suites of 1/2 bedroom are perfect places to stay in Times Square. I was on a business trip and stayed here for 4 nights. It was lovely stay and I will definitely stay here when I am back in NYC next.
