“Convenient to Central Park and Subway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

If you’re looking for a clean, convenient and economical hotel, you may want to check this one out. By no means is it fancy, but it is located just a few blocks from the C train that takes you downtown to where lots of action takes place. I didn’t get to explore Central Park (literally across the street) or the surrounding neighborhood too much. However, I felt safe walking to/from the subway at night. It is located in a quiet Upper West Side neighborhood – within walking distance to Harlem. It is not near Times Square, the Theater District or any of the more popular tourist attractions. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I went with a friend for the long July 4th weekend and they told us exactly where to go for the best view of the fireworks and suggested a great neighborhood deli to get snacks. I would definitely stay there again, even on a solo trip.

Room Tip: Hotel has typical NYC size rooms - very small with a view of "the building next door". I d...

It's basically in Central Park and pretty close to the Subway (should you feel game enough, keep hand sanitizer handy!)

No park views, small room, friendly staff, no free wifi (you have to pay $10 and its mediocre at best) - the worst part is a lack of a fridge in the room, would have been great to keep some water bottles etc cool.

Does everything a basic hotel needs to, not like you're going to be spending your whole holiday in the room anyway.

On arrival at midnight in the new york rain the hotel seemed pretty far away for the new york we expected. However the sun shone after a good sleep and we realised we were on the west side of central park with a good view of central manhattan.
Hotel is basic but just what you need in my opinion. Comfy clean and great shower.
No services in the hotel really. Just the room and some vending machines. Staff ok.
All in all. A great time in new york with a base which was good enough and at a budget price.

A hotel that is across the street from Central Park. A good value in New York City. The people that work there are friendly and nice.
It reminds of a European hotel. Small elevators and rooms. Needed help to know how to get the shower head to work.
The room only has about 10 TV channels. The reception isn't good.
Only 1 key for the room.
They allowed us to check in early. Very good with answering our questions.
Not a hotel that I am used too. If you want a good value in Central Park, it is a good place to stay.

This is a quiet friendly place we needed. Friendly staff and good location. The subway is nearby. Rooms are small but this is expected in NYC. We had to switch to a different room due to noisy air conditioning, the staff were happy to offer a better one. Would stay here again unless Ritz or Roosevelt can match the rate :-)

This hotel was clean and tidy all be it a little basic. The position is fantastic; just on the edge of Central Park; close to the metro and we were even able to attend a free concert at the local cathedral around the corner put on by the New York Philharmonic orchestra. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: the rooms on the higher floors have balconies which might be quite nice. We had a lower floor. Bathr...

Just been there for a few days ago for a couples of days visit. Booked the room through hotwire (for around 160usd/night) and this could possibly be the biggest mistake I've done.

The hotel itself was small and fairly runned-down, located in end of upper west side. The room DOES NOT include free wifi (10 bucks a day!) and is much below average. the only upside with this place is the distance to Central park and subway. Dont expect anything more than that..and no, I'm definitely not going back to Astor after this stay
