  • Fantastic location wonderful staff, very good atmosphere and reasonable price. Front desk well staffed and great bed. A nice reading desk a stocked mini fridge, unlimited free local calls and heated towel racks. Continental breakfast had plenty of choices.

    The hotel is super old, rooms on the street could be really noisy and tv channel options are poor.

  • The location is very central and nearby the hotel you can find a lot of nice places for lunch and dinner. The furniture is comfortable.

    Internet service was little more than impressive and the outdated decor was very poor, room on the street side was a bit noisy, the bed was much too soft.

  • Central park, we ended up waiting for 25 minutes just for the bellman to show up and get our bags, the convenient location is the trade off. Hotel is decent, the staff take very good care to help you enjoy NY and the rooms are really spacious and I had a mini library in my room full of Virginia Woolf books.

    Poor quality windows and noisy street. Bathroom was tiny and dated, service at the front desk was mediocre and the waitstaff at breakfast was rude.

  • The location is excellent, its opposite The Majestic Theatre just off Broadway and la Rustica Pizza down the street is delicious. This hotel is well worth the price and staff are attentive. The room is really really really bigger than i expected, breakfast is good and varied.

    Dated decor and small lobby. The bathrooms are tired and wireless service is very very slow.

  • Good mid city location, central Park and across the street Red Stone Pizza has the best desserts too. Curtains made feel like home rather than a hotel, the Lobby is nice and staff are very pleasant. Generous rooms at a very moderate price, the restaurant is great for breakfast.

    Dated and a bit shabby decor, on sunday poeple at the reception wor rather unfriendly. Uneven bed matress = very unconfortable, the kitchenette was dirty.
