    • The location is good, clean room, on a quiet street and right off the 86th Street subway stop, i just returned from New York last week. Staff is friendly and helpful, the bathroom are spotless and have the nice added touch of Bvlgari amenities. The continental breakfast has sophisticated food and is very fresh.

      Bath had no hot water.

    • In a quiet area, just a block away fron the train station and central Park. The stuff was extremely helpful, staff were excellent and room was very clean and nicely appointed. The continental breakfast was minimal.

      Worst hotel stay in my life, bad service and the window air conditioner was loud and the narrow hallway was hot and stuffy.

    • Good value for this area and near a subway station. Location + nice decor and at a fabulous price. Central park and the museums, just a six block walk to the Met, the staff are exceedingly friendly and helpful. The rooms are charming, the coffee etc. in the am is great as is the wine and cheese in the pm.

      The heater in the hotel is too weak.

    • Great Upper East Side location and just 100 m from 86th street green line subway stop. The franklin hotel is an excellent choice on the ues, the service people are lovely and helpful, nice little breakfast room off of reception. In short, the Dutch call "coffeetaffel", a vey good way to start the day.

      Shower/bath had no hot water.

    • Convenient location near museums, subway and Central Park, great selection of stores in the surrounding blocks. Hotel was clean and quiet, service was excellent, the room was compact had a lovely relaxing. Breakfast was just perfect.

      No busy lobbies, crowded elevators, no long corridors, administrative staff is absolutely not professional.

    • Location and quiet street, near the subway, central Park is only a few blocks away. The Upper East Side neighbourhood is very nice and price to be honest. The lobby is small beautifully decorated in a classic way and the staff is friendly and helpful.

      This hotel is tiny and breakfast is pointless.

    • Location for us was good, taxis were the best solution and the overall appearance of the hotel was great. The staff were welcoming and the employees were very friendly and polite. The room was clean, wireless connection was consistently strong and surprisingly the breakfast was delightful too.

      Area is not quiet and no place to put the luggage and very limited hanging space for clothes. The bathroom is not well ventilated.
