Great hotel, but a little noisy

Hotel is great, but the walls are a little thin between the rooms. Overall though..... for the price you can't beat it.

Solid, Affordable, Great Location

Clean facility. Great Location. Small rooms and meager amenities, as expected from any affordable hotel in NYC. What they lack in being aesthetically modern, they make up for in their location and accountability. Overall, a solid affordable hotel that was good enough for a couple spending a long weekend in the city.

Great hotel for your NYC vacation!

I had heard about Hotel Metro from a friend. I wouldn't have been able to schedule an impromptu weekend to NYC if not for this hotel's low rates: $110 a night to stay a block from Herald Square and walking distance to Times Square/Broadway, Fifth Avenue shopping, etc. is fantastic. I will absolutely stay there again the next time I'm in the city!

Would definitely return

We enjoyed our stay at the Metro Hotel ... central to almost everything, close to subways and within walking distance to great site seeing places. The room was very clean, bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean with nice bath products ... and the showers were good ... you had a choice of rain shower, traditional shower or massage shower! The breakfast they offered was good for a continental breakfast ... we definitely took advantage every morning. The staff was very helpful and quick to assist at any time.

great birthday treat

l would definately come back to this hotel, everything was great, staff very friendly. location excellent. Would recommend everyone to take the shuttle to airports as we were charged extreme charges when the yellow cab didn't turn up as promised so had to take a black cab charging us 160 dollars and the other couple in the car 180 dollars for a one hour trip so be warned.
