“Excellent & Exceptional Apartment Hotel in Central New York”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

Stayed at AKA Central Park for six days at the beginning of October. My experience was exceptional - central convenient location, spacious one bedroom apartment which was well equipped, clean, with lots of amenities and stylish decor.
The staff were very professional, friendly and helpful with arranging tours, car service to and from JFK and concert tickets. The cafe served great coffee and fresh food, the fitness center was well equipped and clean. A bonus was having access to laundry facilities - washing machine and dryer at no cost, in good condition and clean.
I would definately recommend the AKA to others and will stay again when in New York.
The AKA exceeded my expectations.

Room Tip: One Bedroom apartment is very spacious and accommodation at the back of the hotel quiet.

Stayed at aka central park by the end of september on a business trip. I dont think you can beat the duo location/price on this one. Nice studio, not great, but perfect for what it was, clean, good space , nice bathroom and tiny kitchen. I think it could have a better fridge, the one i had was too small and didnt handle the ben and jerrys that i bought. That said, everything else was perfect and the hotel staff were always helpfull and very nice. Lots of restaurants, subway and groceries nearbuy, walking distance. Would stay again.

I've stayed 4 nights at AKA central park with my wife and 3 year-old girl. The location could not be better.
The staff is friendly, the room was spacious and clean with a full kitchen which was ideal for those who are traveling with small children. Also, they provided me a late check-out with no further charges. The negative point is some noise during the night, that could be prevented with acoustic windows.

We couldn't fault this place. Perfect location, close to Central Park, Broadway, Times Square, 5th Avenue. Across the road from The Plaza Hotel. Lovely fresh food in the cafe downstairs - great breakfast and fairly decent coffee (for America). All staff were very friendly and professional. Will definitely be back.

We stayed for 10 days with a one bedroom suite. The location for shopping (5th ave) and central park cannot get any better. I always come to NYC and stay in hotels, first time in a serviced apt. The space in much more than any hotel room, the service is far better. I highly recommend the AKA, was a fantastic experience.

Our stay here was absolutely wonderful. The hotel is very clean and the staff very helpful. It has a great location just 1 block from central park and only a few blocks from 2 great subway stations that can get you pretty much anywhere. Our room was a Deluxe Suite Room on the 9th floor. We had freshdirect.com deliver food too our room the day we were going to arrive and the hotel staff put it in our room prior to our arrival. They offer free laundry self-service. It is downstairs in the lower level and you just bring your items down there, put them in the wash (soap is provided by hotel) and then in about 20 min they are done washing. Drying takes about 30 minutes. This is so handy! We had no problem leaving our wash down there while we were getting ready in the morning, there are staff members and camera's throughout the hallway area so we felt that we would not have anything stolen. All in all this was the best hotel experience I've ever had. The beds were so comfortable! Our room was very quiet and we never heard any street noise. Even that being said during our stay they had a company going around and measuring the windows for installment of soundproof windows, so if there were rooms that did have noise they shouldn't for too much longer!

The AKA at Central Park is a great place to stay especially if you are intending to stay for more than a week. We found it to be gorgeous, stylish, spacious and modern looking and we were quite impressed with the recently refurbished 3rd floor which has rooms catering for the disabled and wheelchair bound. We originally booked to stay at the AKA (based on recommendations from locals) hoping the refurbishments would be completed upon our arrival. Unfortunately they were not completed due to unforseen circumstances however the staff (manager, concierge, doormen) were incredibly kind, courteous and helpful in finding us alternative accessible accomodation whilst offering us all the facilities at AKA as well. This included free breakfast, internet (boardroom), gym, concierge services. The service was quite impressive despite us not even staying there! Next time we are in NY, we will definately stay at AKA. It is so central to everything and the hot spots are all easily accessible. The people at AKA were wonderful and the experience was certainly memorable - we wished we actually stayed there!
