Remodelation required

This hotel needs a remodelation in their rooms. The kitchen is old, the toilet is also old and not working well. It would be helpful a microwave oven. But in general has a good location and the staff is very helpful.

Friendly Staff

I was kindly offered a choice of rooms upon check in. I chose a large basement room w/kitchenette...and added bonus that more than compensated for it being a basement room was that it opened onto secluded garden like space...a great private space for the money. This hotel gives travelers the feel of coming home to their own little 80's NYC apt. As with any older building, there were periodic issues with a lack of hot water and the a/c wasn't as exactly cold. Overall this was a great value and a comfortable room.

Great place to stay

This hotel is at very good location. it is very close to grand central. And the room is much bigger than I expected. There's a living room with sofa, TV and table, a bedroom, a bathroom and a kitchen. I think even 3-5 people can stay in on suite. And when I book it with discount code, it only cost me $273 for one night. It was really great deal considering its location and overall comfort.

Great Hotel for Families

This is a great hotel especially for families with young kids. The bedroom and living room being separate helped all the family. On top of that having a fully equipped kitchen not only helped us save on food cost but also feed the kids that would wake up at 3 am because of jet lag. Location is also good. Three blocks to Grand Central which you can go anywhere once you get to it. To conclude, strongly recommend families with children and travelling from overseas.

LOCATION RULES!!!! Perfect for the family

Absolutely Great Location, everything is close and convenient and the rooms are very spacious and the included kitchen is awesome especially if you travel with the small kids. Staff was excellent at all levels. Sofa bed is horrible but all are (not the hotels fault) so try for 2 beds if possible. As a tourist you are out of the room for most of the day so location is key, the rooms are clean and comfortable, NO Wi-Fi is my only complaint.

New York first timers!

Hotel location was perfect! 3 blocks away from Grand Central Station. Also wasn't a lot of street noise at night. Room was quite large, has a small kitchen with stove & fridge. Separate living room & bedroom. Hotel is older but for the price, space, & quiet street. Would definitely recommend!
