Editorial review:

This small, classic hotel is located in the Carnegie Hill neighborhood has excellent free continental breakfasts and a laid-back atmosphere. Critics felt that there weren't any first-class amenities such as turndown service or good newspapers. The rooms aren't anything special and the service varies from exceptional to bad.

Verified Reviews:

  • Breakfast was quite good - Gym is not much to speak of - Lovely room
  • Comfortable bed - Short walk to central park - Hope to come back next year
  • Roof top terrace was great - Surronding area was very plush - Room was slightly on the small side
  • I strongly recommend it - Breakfasts are very basic - Suites are lovely and allow for a relaxing stay
  • Showers don't work - Comfortable beds - Furniture was scratched and damaged

  • Great location to Central Park, modern hotel and classic style. The staff were very friendly and the TV did not allow the purchase of movies and took much too long to change channels. The continental breakfast was adequate.

    Rooms werea little dowdy common areas quite smart, as NYC prices go, this place is not expensive and good value for money, bathroom is outdated and needs renovating.

  • Location is good for museums and upper East Side near Park Ave. Wales hotel is the best and front desk candor and desire to service guests. The room is too hot and is impossible to turn off the radiator, complimentary breakfast perfect start to the day.

    Old world decor and the staff were unsympathetic to our complaints. Bed was very uncomfortable.

  • Great location near Central Park, perfect for all the museums and mia from Long Island. Very nice place to stay and offers home style cooked meals. Staff were very attentive, rooms were clean and the rooftop terrace was pleasant and very relaxing.

    Nightly rates aren't bad for nyc and surprisingly quiet atmosphere. Way uptown on 92nd street not worth, services inconsistent and no hot water for first day.

  • Location is very nice, central Park is only a couple blocks away and hotel is located in a less busy part of the city, plenty of restaurants adjacent. Staff are pleasant and helpful, the beds are comfortable, food is readily available and good.

    Room had no view and the halls were quite noisy at all hours, old building , not clean and we saw at your site the veranda at the top floor o my god. The cable service offered poor selections, sheets had holes and were dirty.

  • The position is excellent, i loved complimentary breakfast on the roof overlooking the park and calm quiet atmosphere away from the bustle of downtown. The staff is great and the rooms are very small and the payment is by itself huge. We liked the espresso machine/ cofffee/ tea being avail at all hours.

    Worst hotel experience in years, subway access is not easy and we wandered all the streets, day and night and did'nt once feel uncomfortable. Also the internet is not free and mattress needs to be changed. The restaurants on the block are ordinary and overpriced.
