Todo normal, gran lugar! cercano a todos los puntos de interés

Tiny room, but wasn't in there much. Heat and air conditioning worked well. Bed was comfortable.

Great hotel with lots of history. Conveniently located in the middle of the Theatre District.

The room was grim. We were on the fifth floor and, during our two night stay, the elevator was out for several hours. (We had to rescue a woman who got stuck in the elevator, with luggage, on the fourth floor.). Close to all the action in the theater district. Too close-the street noise was intolerable. The staff was really nice.

This is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed at The iron was mounted to the wall I think it is a place for hookers

Needs makeover. Carpet threadbare. Room clean but so very small. Great location; super convenient to all things we wanted to see/do--shows, Times Square, Central Park. Traffic horrendous and made it expensive to take taxi to other places. This area of NYC just really expensive. We knew that going in. Maybe stay outside area and use subway next time. For us, it wasn't greatest, nicest place but it worked out. Location, staff--that's why 3 stars.

While the location of this hotel is amazing and just steps away from Broadway, the hotel itself is terrible. To begin, the staff are not very helpful (when we checked in, we had to wait several minutes while the front desk personnel finished a story complaining about other guests in the hotel... awkward). Second, our room was not clean. The bathroom had black mold in places and the ceiling had water damage. Third, the bed might have been the most atrocious thing I've ever slept on. Finally, the hallways and stairs are in terrible shape, with wallpaper peeling off and holes in the carpet. It's really too bad because the hotel has potential.

Nice and dated hotel, very close to Broadway, Metro and working distance from central park.. Brilliant staff and within the vicinity of hell kitchen..

It was okay but not great. Good location if you're a tourist.

My room might charitably be called "quirky". The floor sloped at a 4-degree angle (I measured it), and the built-in desk at a 3-degree angle. (My coworker on a different floor did not have this problem.) But there had at least been some relatively recent improvements. The bathroom was modern and clean. The out-of-reach air conditioning unit had a remote control. The flat-screen TV could also be used as a monitor for streaming video from my laptop. I've definitely stayed in worse hotels in NYC for about the same price and in roughly the same location. For it's combination of location and price, the Mayfair is okay but not great. I'll use it again, if the situation requires it.

A traditional hotel with the charm of a bygone era in a location that is hard to beat.

Room was small, but clean. Bathroom even smaller. Adequate.

The room I stayed in, 215, is tiny, but it's NYC, in the middle of the theater district, in a very old hotel. It was very clean and the a/c worked very well. There was a big tv. I found the bed to be comfortable. All the staff I had contact with were very nice. The hotel is old, nothing like a modern, fancy or chain hotels. It has history and character. The lobby walls are covered with wonderful old photos of 1940's and 50's movie and music stars. I loved it.

The price was right for a hotel so close to Times Square. Room was very small, but clean. My only compliant is the wall air conditioner was extremely loud. Short walk to subway and Times Square.

This hotel is not for everyone. The rooms--mine anyway--are small, there was no mini-fridge or coffee maker, and there is only one elevator, which is slow. This is not a standard, characterless, off-the-shelf corporate.

Eh. The location is wonderful. The hotel is right in the middle of all the action. There is a subway a block away that conveniently takes you wherever you need to go. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean. The hotel is surprisingly quiet considering its location. It was a weird check-in. I got there about 1.5 hours before the check-in time. I asked if it was too early to check in. I was told, "maybe." Huh? Then I was told that I already checked in. Again, huh? I was asked several times if I was already there. The answer was "no" every time. They did kindly let me check in early. The hotel is kitschy. The hotel is tired and needs some sprucing up. The bathroom left a lot to be desired. The sink had a big crack through it. The shower doors did not slide. They were heavy. They were so old they needed to be lifted to move - and they moved awkwardly. I can't even explain the dial to turn on the water. It looked like a dashboard in an old car. It had a thermometer in it. I don't know what year that was from. There was missing grout and caulk in the shower. They sloppily fixed it. There was holes in the ceiling where the lights were. The bulbs had a ton of dust on them. The handles on the sink were wood and were worn down. I wouldn't touch them with my bare hand. The weather was unseasonably cool and rainy at times. The room was cool, which was ok. There is an extra blanket in the closet, which I used. I went out in the morning. Luckily I came back for somethi

The Mayfair is a good hotel, friendly staff, clean and very close to Broadway and Times Square. The elevator is kind of small, the rooms are kind of small, but, hey, you are in a great location. May be a bit noisy for some, window style A/C is not very quite, but it is efficient. Ear plugs helped me.

Hotel you can tell used to be something. Nice location and place to crash. One of a dozen that charge electricity since they are cheaper than other nicer hotels in the area.

Very convenient location, close to theatre district, Times Square and restaurants

This way my first visit to the MAYFAIR HOTEL. The staff was professional and very friendly which made me feel welcomed. The room was spotless ,quiet and very comfortable. Of course the location is great. I will definitely stay at the MAYFAIR again.
