                  • Older travelers

                    I have already given a review on Booked.net for this hotel which I think is overpriced and disappointing

                    We have stayed there on two occasions which have been booked and paid in advance through Booked.net and have not had the room we were expecting as per your description. The hotel on both occasions said it was the fault of Booked.net who do not give people the correct room description. I am inclined to think this is just an excuse, but perhaps your company should look into it as it is not acceptable that people should book and pay for something inferior to what they are expecting

                    The hotel was OK, nothing special, but the hotel has clearly seen better days. The rate for one night was way too expensive, but the 2nd was OK for the location. I was desperate for somewhere to stay and I fell for the holiday inn name

                    Noisy area - inside and outside hotel, generally dark and dingy - could do with being spruced up a bit, Rooms were fairly small, hot water ran out late morning

                  • Family with children

                    The pillows - there was a choice between soft or hard pillows. It was really comfortable.

                    The room space was really cramp. I guess that's typical of a manhattan hotel. The toilet had a musky, humid kind of smell and there was no ventilator so the smell took a while to go away.

                    Good location

                    Bad and expensive breakfast, windows don't open, and very loud and old air conditioning (like sleeping next to a broken down Harley).

                    It was functional.

                    It's not Soho, it's a couple blocks from the farthest edge of soho. Come out of the building and turn left and you are in the horrible part of china town and beyond. It's all a bit cheap and you get electric shocks off the cheap carpet and bed cover. We definitely got bitten at night, we moved room and then it was fine but they said they investigated and it was not the bed. We disagree I am a pretty seasoned traveller and have never been bitten before.

                    The staff were very friendly and helpful. the room was ok though a bit small. Breakfast was good though not included with room rate.

                    The carpet was a bit dusty causing me allergy. Believe that the room rate was a bit high. The hotel can be renovated.

                    Location is great! In the middle of China Town, Little Italy, Soho. Great shopping - fun location!!!

                    You can hear the subway from up on the 9th Floor.

                    The location is very nice.

                    The lack of charm of the hotel (bar/reception/lounge areas).

                    Easy to get to subway on Canal street which was convenient for business meetings. Great to be right at the edge of Soho and convenient for wandering around and finding nice restaurants for dinner after day time business meetings.

                    Good location in New York Chinatown, near subway stops, Soho, Little Italy, very walkable. Good free breakfast buffet included with our room.

                    Gave us a small room with queen-size bed, even though in booking we chose one with king sized bed. (The small print did say bed size wasn't guaranteed, but still the type of room we booked was King, and we didn't get it.) Very bare-bones room, without even a bed-side table on my side of little bed. The shower drained to the center of the bathroom floor, not into the shower's own drain, so walking into the bathroom was like wading into a swamp. They clearly knew this was a problem because they had two bathmats folded on the floor on the edge of the shower area, as if they thought those would stop the water, but of course they just got soaked and the water kept going everywhere.

                    The location was perfect for walking and shopping in Soho, Greenwich Village, Financial District, Garment District, Chelsea, Little Italy, Chinatown, etc. On bus lines to Times Square. Very convenient. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Very clean. Staff very nice and welcoming.

                    Friday night entertainment (hip-hop) was terrible....too loud and we had to leave the dining room and go elsewhere. Suggest a quiet band or solo artist for family dinner hours. It sounded like a nightclub!

                    Excellent location. Near train station and right smack in the middle of Little Italy and Chinatown. The staff we also responsive to requests and were prompt at meeting them.

                    Your booking confirmation says the room is equipped with a mini-ref, but there wasn't so we had to demand it. Coz I broughht stuff that are perishable. The mini-ref is a must have.
