I certainly recommend it. Rooms are small, sure, but they make up for that in a number of ways - there are drawers under the bed, for example. Everything was perfectly clean and spotless. Staff was helpful. The area is pleasantly quiet. Location is great: within walking distance to the Fifth Avenue and other attractions. Perhaps what I liked the most was being in a budget hotel that didn't look cheap - decoration is charming and tasteful, far superior to the decoration we see in some expensive hotels.
Be advised, however, that the private bathrooms are not really that private, in case you're traveling with someone else. Also, they could replace the soap dish: the soap keeps falling through the grids while you're showering and that's very irritating. Finally, the internet connection is very slow and should not be advertised as "high speed".
