Cheap and convenient

The hotel is decent for its price and location. It's old and abit dirty. Though the bedroom is comfort and the staffs are nice, we always have a feeling that something bad could happen to us while we were there. It was under construction when we stayed.

Great stay in NYC

Great refurbished room with all comfort. Pity the hotel refurbishment was not finished before we got there. Would definitely recommend the place though, as it is so conveniently located! Great staff too.

One Night Stay

Had not visited this hotel before which has undergone a recent makeover...the room was very nice, very clean and very comfortable. There was a glitch with the television but otherwise everything was great.

City break

The hotel is in a great location and just a few minutes walk from the Flatiron building, the Empire State building and Macy's department store. The room was small but perfectly formed, our room was at the back of the hotel so was very quiet for such a central location. The hotel is in the process of undergoing what looks like rather extensive renovation. The reception area has a lovely lounge area with complimentary coffee and pastries available on a morning. During our stay there was an issue with the heating and hot water due to the freezing conditions outside. This was dealt with swiftly and professionally by reception staff. My only criticism of this hotel is the elevators, they were very slow and not adequate for a 13 floor hotel. I imagine this will be rectified as part of the renovation project...Again staff were always very helpful. We had a fantastic stay and would not hesitate to return to The Evelyn next time we visit New York!

Discouraging Problems!

The location of the hotel is great. The staff are friendly and try to do everything possible. However, the windows are DRAFTY! After complaining, they sent someone up to "close" the windows, which still didn't work. Honestly, have no idea what they did. The toilet broke twice, which was annoying. After the room was fixed with the toilet, the person adjusted our room temperature and lights, which we discovered upon our return. Thus the room was cold with the drafty windows. Also, it took forever to use the one and only elevator. Also, the WiFi is something to be desired. After calling about it, we were told that it was working and there is nothing they could do. The hotel was discouraging for claiming 3 stars. When checking out, the hotel staff didn't even ask how my hotel stay was, which I found absurd. Like I said, lot's of discouraging problems with relatively little help, but friendly staff.

Great cheap weekend getaway!

The hotel staff here were in general AMAZING. They do everything they can to make your stay and experience great! The hotel is also amazingly located just a 10-20 minute walk from all the best parts of Manhattan! The building itself is very old, so the water in the rooms is quite weak and not very warm... and the elevators are quite slow! Other than that, the hotel is great for a cheap weekend getaway!

Great Location but Hotel Under Construction

This hotel has the potential to be great but we stayed during the renovation so it is really difficult to review it fairy. There was only one elevator working, no lobby to speak of, no coffee shop, and one day no hot water. Despite all of that, we actually had a decent time. The staff is friendly, the rooms clean (though small), and the location cannot be beat. I would maybe stay again but not during renovation.

As for a place to stay the rooms are a bit like a dorm. However when in nyc why would you stay in your room? The lobby resturant and location are all fantastic.

A great stay at a lovely hotel

We (a small family of three) stayed at the Evelyn for two nights. This hotel was still in the process of renovating so the lobby wasn't quite ready but it was already quite charming. We booked a room with king-sized bed and we really liked how the room was decorated. It was elegant yet modern. I especially loved the shower. The size of the room is okay for NYC standard. Overall a wonderful stay. I'd recommend this little hotel. As for the location, this hotel is great. It's minutes of walking to Subway stations, Flatiron building, the Empire State building, and many little cafes nearby.
