“Perfect”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

For our first time to New York we wanted somewhere more spacious and quieter to settle in for a week and this was perfect. We had booked online patio apartment about 3 months in advance. After 24 hour traveling from Australia we walked into reception to a warm New York greeting by Nimo and Michael. Booking was all there, room was as requested with great prompt friendly service. Its was very clean with good comfortable bedding and linen.
Sure rooms are getting a bit tried and we need to use the (free) wifi in the lobby etc etc etc but all the staff give an extra special effort so these minor shortcomings are really just not an issue.
The location was just perfect and after a week in NY we could find none better.

Well done guys...love ya work ! ( but could we have free wifi in our rooms please )

If you're looking for a beautiful hotel away from the craziness if Times Square this is a gem. We stayed in a one bedroom suite so we had a small kitchen, a living room with pull out sofa and a bedroom with 2 queen beds. It was just like having our own little NYC apartment in the upper east side of manhattan. The hotel has no restaurant or bar but there are several restaurants on the block that will deliver room service. Kris was very helpful with our luggage and lunch recommendations.

My husband and I spent 7 nights at the Affinia Gardens. The location is wonderful! Walking distance to the Metropolitan Museum, the Guggenheim, the Jewish Museum, just to name a few. We walked to two wonderful restaurants: Jojo on E. 6th and Fishtail on E. 62nd. We had a kitchen, a livingroom, and a bedroom with two queen-sized beds. It was very quiet (except for some work they were doing on the hotel, but that noise was minimal). Everyone working there was pleasant and helpful! We had no problems or complaints. We would stay there again in a minute!

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor and it was very quiet and pleasant.

My family of five travelled to New York and wanted to stay in the Upper East, close to Central Park and away from the craziness of Times Square. We travelled with another family also with children and needed a suite with cooking facilities. The Affinia Gardens was the perfect choice. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable for 2 adults and three kids. The staff at the hotel were excellent, very friendly and assisted us with any information we needed during our stay. We arranged for a sitter to mind our kids while we had a parents night out, and the hotel evening threw in a free movie.
Only small problem was I forgot to ask for a room away from the elevator.
There are plenty of restaurants in close proximately and a supermarket for other needs. Close to subway made transportation very easy.
We would stay here again. The manager Pedro, Sal and the other staff were very helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room due to some traffic noise, and make sure you ask for a room away from the elev...

I felt so good at the Affinia, We were there for three months, my husband had a surgery and we stayed at the Affinia, since the first moment we were treated very familiar and made us felt like home, the room was perfect, everyone was very nice specially the people at the front desk, I have to thank Pedro and all the team, also bell boys Chris, Sall and Michael, the housekeeping and I don't want to mention anyone because all of them were so nice.

I would be back there for sure, and I recommend the Affinia Gardens to all, It is perfect cause it is quiet and you can walk from there to all places and it is easy to take a taxi, or subway or bus.

I loved Manhattan!!!!!

Room Tip: One Bedroom suite at any floor.

Can't say enough good things - hotel is quiet, very well-managed, housekeeping was impeccable - we stayed for a week, and the entire staff should get a pat on the back. We will recommend Affinia Gardens to all our friends! Lynne B

This hotel was such a good find. I booked and cancelled like 3 hotels before I finally booked here. So glad I did. This is great for 2-3 companions. We got a junior suite and it has a full service kitchen. Very spacious interior and friendly staff. With the hustle and bustle of nyc, its a relief to go home to some peace and quiet after partying on the west side. Nyc, hope to be back soon!!!
