“Good apartment and close to central park”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

It's AKA apartment is good, and close to Central Park. The only problem is the standard weekly cleaning service since it's not a hotel! I stayed for 2 weeks in Jan... Room is great and big, which is good compared to the other tiny rooms of NY hotels. I cannot say there is any views because the apartment building is not that tall. The service level of the staff was also fine and nice, willing to help too.

I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 week stay at AKA Central Park in May. The suite was large by global standards, letalone for New York. Kitchen was well appointed for preparing a small meal, but with so much happening in the area including Central Park, 5th Avenue and Hell's Kitchen, all within walking distance, I didn't spend too much time there....

Great room, so clean and close to new! So much better than expected! Staff are so friendly and helpful with a big smile. A bit noisy due to building renovation across the road but quiet at night. We had a suite deluxe and the kitchen utensils and pots were more than we've been anywhere else. Just awesome! 2 minute walk to Central Park and 15 minute walk to Times Square so perfect!

I was going to say possibly the best place to stay in NYC with a child but then thought about all the previous frustrations we had staying in NY - small rooms, over-priced, poor locations - and realised AKA Central Park didn't have any of these and therefore would be my choice to stay with or without kids in tow.

Firstly the rooms are massive, and I mean big by normal standards not just NYC standards. They also have a kitchenette - perfect for keeping whatever you might need in the fridge and being able to prepare some food at home. Secondly the location is brilliant - near Central Park, near the shops, near the zoo, near the subway - brilliant. Thirdly, its pretty reasonably priced for what you get - by stripping back on some of the hotel necessities (not that you'd notice) they have been able to keep the prices lower. To give you the feeling of being in an hotel or in your own home.

Finally the staff were really pleasant.

I think if we are going to go back to NYC with or without our 18 month old baby, we would be hard pushed to choose somewhere else to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back, are slightly overlooked by offices (but that's sort of the norm in NYC...

Second time in aka central park ! Very comfortable one bedroom suite . Location near the park and midtown is fantastic. We love it and we will return. Coffee at a cafe is excellent . Front desk employees should smile to guests a bit more....

This is a well located hotel at the bottom of Central Park and central to most of the places tourists want to see - Times Square, Central Park, Madison Ave., the Met and the Guggenheim museums are easily walking distance along with all the top brand shops.

We stayed in a room towards the back after I asked to move away from the liftes which chime as the elevators go up and down - something the experienced travellor thinks of but can result in discomfort for novices. There is a great gym and a good business centre. Wifi is avialble throughout.
