    • An excellent location right in the centre of Midtown Manhattan, also very pleasant buffet breakfast means do not have to go out and search for suitable place, a free wine and cheese session every evening between 5 and 8.

      Much nicer room for 339.

    • Yards away from Grand Central Station and the transfer buses for all three Airports, the Library Hotel is located in the perfect Manhattan spot. Free breakfast every day is excellent.

      Rooms way too small beds hard and e elevator was just outside our door.

    • Excellent location, just minutes from Times Square and the value for money is very good. Nice cozy bar on top floor and the continental breakfast is a miracle. Wine reception each evening is a great touch too.

      Room service from nearby restaurant could be improved.

    • In a fantastic location and just one block from Grand Central Station. We loved the hotel's theming, for such high price, one could expect more impressive breakfest and the staff are professional and approachable and the facilities are top notch. Rooms as quiet as can be in new york, rooftop bar is fabulous and wine and cheese at 5.00pm and the breakfast set up, helpful conceirge.

      Drinks too expensive.

    • Location & amenities were superb, the hotel was very clean, well presented and the front of house staff were very good including Isaac. Service was excellent and the room was very clean. The breakfast bar was lovely and the complimentary evening, wine was a great way to sit and relax before going out of an evening.

      This place is massively overpriced and the decore in the bedrooms is looking a little tired.
