“great hotel!!!!”
Reviewed August 15, 2008

I would recommend this hotel to anyone! My family brought me here for my 21st birthday and I had the time of my life! New York was one of the most exciting places I have ever been to and the hotel was magnificent! When we arrived they had upgraded us to a duplex suite free of charge! the rooms were beautiful and the beds were so comfortable you completely forget about the bustle of the city and you're asleep in no time! The staff was very friendly especially helping us park, especially in manhattan! Check out the kimberly the next time you're in manhattan im sure you wont be disappointed! and be sure to ask for Ralph the door greeter!

Just returned from NYC and a night at The Kimberly Hotel. I've stayed at a lot of hotels in the city, but this topped them all for value. I prefer the intimacy of boutique hotels and this hotel was also incredibly reasonable (comparably priced on most of the websites). The hotel website had much higher rates for the same rooms.

Pros:

Great location for shopping. Take the E train from Penn Station and you arrive a block from the hotel. Also plenty of cabs in the area.

Our standard room was large, quiet and immaculate. Bathroom was average size, renovated with marble floors etc. and shelf space for toiletries. And the air conditioning purred - no clunking as the temperature adjusted. Comfortable beds with crisp, white sheets. And so clean - a great room.

The staff is well trained and helpful. I mentioned my concern regarding the noisy rooms by the night club mentioned in some of the Trip Advisor reviews, and the receptionist immediately took care that our room was in a quiet location.

Concierge provided great maps and a recommendation for a moderately priced Italian restaurant on 53rd St. between 2nd and 3rd. Felt like the East Village - 10 tables - and very inexpensive. La Gioconda - fantastic food - esp. the crepes with chocolate sauce! Thank you, Lindsay, for that recommendation. Management take note - Lindsay should be your top PR person- charming and efficient!

The $10.00 coupon towards the $20.00 buffet breakfast was well worth it. We also had a late lunch there that was excellent.

Cons:

For the hotel, none. The area, however, was very crowded and rushed, but it is summer and the tourists are spending their Euros. And there are stores everywhere.

And should I complain when there is a framed letter from President Jimmy Carter complimenting the hotel? It seems he has stayed there many times.

Central and safe. Four nights in luxurious accommodation for a fraction of the cost of the well known hotel where we usually stay a block away! Comfortable suite with kitchen, if needed, + balcony and views over Manhattan. Just two minutes walk to St Patrick's Cathedral.

An incredibly busy schedule demanded a central hotel and the Kimberly provided all we needed - sumptious bedroom and separate drawing room with cosy sofas, desk and chairs. Printer/fax provided + stack of paper and laptop was up and running immediately + a Business Centre on ground floor. High quality furnishings and fabrics. Staff helpful and polite. Room service fast and efficent. In pouring rain the doorman found a taxi almost immediately - nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant was relaxed and food good.

Will definitely use this hotel again, perhaps for a longer stay with teenage children as sofabeds in drawing room and plenty of room for all the family.

Not too bad....the rooms were a mix of 4-5 star and a Courtyard Marriott style....the beds were the saving grace as they were soooooo comfy and amazing....the ac didn't work well so at times the rooms were stuffy....the staff was amazing....beyond helpful and nice...we would probably stay again as the price was great for being right in the heart of east side near everything...however we would probably check other hotels first for an over all nicer room...

On behalf of the entire staff, I want to apologize for the AC and your disappointing room. We are currently dealing with the AC issue.

Me and mom, sister and aunt decided to go to new york. I looked around for hotels that had big rooms with more than one bed!The kimberly suited this!
We arrived at the hotel and was greeted by very friendly door men! When we got to the reception they decided to upgrade us from the one bed suite to one of the duplex rooms! So we were very pleased with that!

When we got to the room, we were god smacked! It was amazing! There was 2 floors, 2 baths and 2 balconys. Each floor had a king size bed and a wide screen tv. There was a very fancy spiral stair case as well! Over all we were very pleased. It ment me and my sister could leave my mom and aunt to rest while we went upstairs.

The location itself was great! Just off 5th avenue. There's a subway just a couple blocks down. All in walking distance with central park, 5th avenue, rockerfella center, empire state building, times square! Right smack bang in the middle.

We were given vouchers for the resturant which we used in the morning. There's a lovely buffet in the morning with lots of fresh fruit, pancakes, waffels, french toast, omletes, cereals. On the weekends, breakfast is free! The staff there were also very friendly.
If you didn't want to eat out there's a food shop around the corner with a big deli type bar with loads of fruits, hot food, pasta, salads.

There's a concierge in the reception also, who are very helpful.

All in all a brilliant stay and would def go back!

Just returned from NY and will definately be going back but wont be staying at The Kimberly. Nothing wrong with the staff and room but from our room (5J) we had no view and was next to a nightclub. Spent a lot of money of taxi's back and forth to Meat Packing District and Greenwich Village. 7/10.

Dear Kimberly Guest,

Thank you for reviewing The Kimberly Hotel. On behalf of our staff, I am very sorry you were disappointed in your stay. If you decide to stay with us again, I recommend requesting a room on a higher floor to distance yourself from the nightclub. Although The Kimberly’s location is in close proximity to many points of interest in Manhattan, I understand that it’s not convenient for travel to all areas. However, we hope you consider The Kimberly for your next visit to New York.
