2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I’ve been to 5* hotels as well as YMCAs in NY and over all this is the best accommodation I’ve ever been to comparing price, location, friendliness and cleanliness. I would stay here and recommend the studios without any hesitation and looking forward to visit again next year!

My daughter and I would come back anytime !! We stayed 6 nights , We knew the rooms were small ( but ours was big enough for the time spent in it !) The people working there were all very nice and helpful , the location close to Time Square is fabulous , the place is clean , young looking , and the bed was really comfortable and to top it all the rates are very good for the location !! Thank you

The room/bathroom is very small but has everything you need and is really clean, they clean the room every day wich is great! The staff is very friendly and helpfull and there is always someone at the front desk so you feel very safe. There is free water/tea/coffee available at the lounge in the basement. The location is just amazing!! It's a 2 minute walk to Times Square/broadway.. Perfect for a city trip to New York! I will be back!!

The staff was fabulous. Everyone was from a different country and the owner was so kind. The lounge area was SO great with complimentary tea and coffee. Almost a hostel like feel. We got to talk to so many awesome guests and they held our luggage for as long as we needed. The subway is directly below the building so the room is equity with complimentary ear plugs which I thought was cute. The room layout was so nicely done (I was in the bunk bed room) and I loved the design, it made it feel unique and comfy. The location is great for tourists/first timers. Literally a block off of Times Square. Like I said the subway is right below so you will hear it (although it didn’t bother me, it is something to note). I did have a strange issue, when we arrived my mattress was one of the worst ones I had ever laid on. I could feel the springs as if nothing was covering them. I thought “surely they don’t even sell mattresses of this quality, or MAYBE it might be upside down”. So I felt underneath, and sure enough it was! Haha. So I had to flip the mattress and redo the sheets which proved to be difficult seeing as I was on the top bunk. The white sheets were also stained even when we got a replacement. The bed was just fine after being flipped!

Stayed here for 5 days and I can only say amazing! Cleanest hotel ever, with most friendly people working there. Location is perfect, right on broadway and so close to Times Square but still 2 minutes away from all TS drama, so perfect for everyone. The room isn’t small at all, so ignore all these comments about it - we also had a room with a view on the streets and it was awesome (thank you so much for that)! Hotel offers fresh coffee and tea and hot chocolate for free, all day, and it’s the most amazing loby ever. A girl working there was so friendly, let us use the computer to get the NHL tickets and printed them out. You can also borrow a free umbrella in case of the rain. Really don’t look further, just book and enjoy!

Overall, good stay. Staff is accommodating, rooms were okay. Location was great for Times Square. You can definitely hear other guests from your room, no elevator (although they help you with your bags, which is nice), checking in and out was easy, and it felt safe. They lock their front doors at a certain hour which is reassuring. There was always someone up at the front desk to help if need be. Rooms are quite small and I felt a bit on top of one another, however you are in crowded Times Square so for it was worth, it was acceptable. The biggest thing and reason for 4/5 rating is the bathrooms. There is no real door or shield from the water when showering. The entire bathroom floor was a puddle and the room felt completely wet. We had to keep placing towels down to dry it out. It consistently felt damp throughout the room after showering. Otherwise, everything else was smooth and good. I would still recommend!

This hotel is very cool and ticks most boxes. Very central to Broadway, times square etc. Rooms are clean and simple with fun decor ,flat screen tvs, hairdryer, safe etc... Free tea and hot chocolate 24hrs in communal lounge area and fresh coffee offered in the mornings. My only negative would be: No lift available. I would definitely re-visit 😍

We decided to stay an extra night in NYC but the hotel we were in was too expensive so we moved next door to City Rooms. Our expectations were quite low as it was such good value for money so we were really pleasantly surprised! Staff were super friendly & helpful, room was small but nicely decorated and really clean. We booked a king and the bed was huge! Would definitely stay here again. We also mentioned at check in that we were on honeymoon and by the time we got back to the room later that day there was a bottle of fizz for us in there - lovely touch thank you!

Excellent place and location. I stayed in a room with a bunk bed, small but with the necessary and very clean. The bathroom is small too and the only thing uncomfortable is that the shower does not have a curtain but it is not very relevant. Close to many places of interest and everything is affordable. The staff was very friendly. 100% recommended.

Excellent. Good and clean room. Fluffy towels, shower and soap availlable. Sufficient for a city trip. Great location. Close to subway, site seeing locations, restaurants and bars. The personal is friendly and helpfull!
