I stayed almost a week at this place on August 2011. It was great. Room was small but traveling alone this was not a problem. I was able to manage my suitcase inside the small closet. There are hangers on the closet and on the doors, very handful! A nice mirror on the back of the door. I did not found the bed hard.
The bathroon always clean, only a minor problem to adjust the temperature of the water since the shower faucet is kind of broken.
And location is the best, 5 block to Grand Central to catch a lot of trains and/or busses. Short walk to Times Square, Rockefeller Center and United Nations building. I was there on the weekend there was no public transportation due to Irene storm and I walked from Sutton place to Central Park via 5th av. It is not so close but not impossible, and since there was no metro there were few options on where to go.
Bruce was a great help, he was so nice since the moment I arrived until I left when he helped me to catch a taxi on a time that looked like the worst to catch one.
Rooms look JUST like the pictures!! And it is true, you will feel like you are staying with some relatives.
Be prepared to carry your luggage 4 floors since there isn't an elevator.
Being my first time in NYC, I found this place great and very safe and if I ever come back to NY I would choose this place for sure.
