“vacations in NYC”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Rooms are too small. but nice view of the Hudson River from the window. No wifi in the rooms but only in the lobby. The receptionnists are very kind. The location is very good (5 subway stops and you're in Time Square).

Decent and safe location, nice desk clerks. Very minimal - clean but very small and bare. You would think that even with a very low budget it could be updated to at least seem more cheerful. But if all you need is a place to put your head and ambience is not at all an issue, this is the place.

The location here is hard to beat for the money. For maybe $150/night, you are mere minutes from the 79th Street subway station, and blocks from Central Park. However, the rooms are dated. The hallways have a funny smell and the rooms are old, but other than that, they are clean and the beds are very comfortable. Don't forget to bring your own shampoo and conditioner, as they don't provide any at the hotel. Service staff very kind, and they allowed us to store our luggage in their basement for the day before we took off for Penn Station. Overall good value!

Room Tip: 165/166 (adjoining rooms) was good
