How this place got 3 stars is an absolute miracle in itself!

One our first night we got placed in a room that smelled heavily of mold. We decided to just deal with it and attempted to buy air fresheners to plug into the walls to hopefully cover some of it up, but to no avail. Eventually you just get used to the horrid stench and can eventually fall asleep. But that's where the real fun began! That moldy smell? That was because the ceiling panels were socked in water. WE found this out because in the middle of the night, one broke loose right over our bed and landed directly on our heads. This isn't the best way to wake up on you're very first day of vacation! So we complained, and got "Upgraded." Now I will admit the new room(while smaller) at least lacked the distinct moldy smell we had grown accustomed to. This hotel also advertises free WiFi in your rooms. They fail to mention the WiFi only works within the main lobby. I would never recommend anyone staying in this abomination of a hotel. How it got three stars is a miracle within itself.

It was not worth the price!

Horrible conditions. Rooms are old and walls are paper thin. Heard the couple next to us moaning all night every night!!! Room smelled funny. Close walking distance to Times Square but location was a little scary especially at night. Over paid very badly!!! Wouldn't stay there again...staff was nice

at most 1-star hotel

This is definitely not a 3-star hotel. I would say it is not even a 2-start hotel. The staff members there were kind of helpful, but that did not change the overall star rating. To be honest, this is the worst hotel experience I ever had. I am quite surprised how 3-star rating was given to this hotel and I'm kind of angry for that. I would have never selected this hotel, even for free, had I not believed that this is a true 3-star hotel.

Great budget find

I've stayed at a lot of budget hotels in New York, and some are better than others. This was one of the best. It's not trying to be opulent--and it's not--but it provides a good room for a good price in a city where real estate is sold and rented at a premium. I'd definitely stay here again. The neighborhood is perfect--half a block from the Flatiron building and the Eataly store and close to several subway stops.

Fantastic Location and suitable for low-maintence people

Before arriving, we were very worried due to other reviews. We were extremely satisfied with our stay! My boyfriend and I are both very low-maintence and don't need a huge, glamorous room to enjoy your adventures in New York. We were provided a clean rooms, bathroom, and bed that were maintained daily. GREAT price. Ideal location in New York. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. They allowed us to check in 2 hours early as well as store our luggage after check-out on our last day! Very simple rooms and bathroom but we loved it! We would totally stay here again on our next trip to NY! Thanks La Semana for an affordable, safe place to stay in NY!

Not so good

Well, the room was really small, no internet connection, shower impossible. it was quite noisy during the night. On the other hand the staff was good, tried to help.
