I was so impressed by the excellent and accommodating service. It is in a great spot, right next to the Empire State Building and heaps of places to eat and drink. Yes the rooms are small but that’s NYC for you! All around, our stay was excellent. I highly recommend.

Front desk is great. Very friendly. Room is small. Really really really smaller than a dorm room. small. Pillows not great. Linens are clean pillows flat. Bathroom was clean. Housekeeping knocked on door at 9am. I was on phone call and also not dressed. When I didn't answer they opened door. This is a small room with no vestibule. Door locked was on but she saw me sitting on bed in my underwear. Not cool I was not checked out. TV service is good. It is reasonably quiet for NYC. I was traveling alone so room size was ok but the rooms are bed sized cubicles. Close to everything

Great location & clean- small room but cheap and exactly what I needed

Great location. Rooms are quite small (usual in NYC) but clean and you can even have a view on Empire State Building if you are lucky

Good location. Great staff. Small rooms but all was good and enjoyable.

The hotel is perfect for just sleeping for the night. There is plenty of space for two people to sleep, and you also have a private bathroom. Great space for the price

Staff is very friendly and location is excellent. Rooms are ok although there is no amenities (gym, restaurant...) inside the hotel. I was lucky to be upgraded in a bigger room which was ok for 1 person.

No bathrooms in the lobby (you have to use the bathroom at Starbucks adjacent to the hotel), no coffee maker, no clock and not one chair in the room. The cover to the toilet seat was so close to the counter it wouldn’t open properly and kept felling down, constantly hitting me when I went to the bathroom (gross!). The button to the one elevator in the lobby was malfunctioning so it took awhile for it to get the signal to arrive. Room is tiny, but to be expected for nyc. Very old and bare bones hotel. Walkable to Subway. Staff was ok. I would not choose this hotel again.

Good location, room was small with no closet or dresser. Room was warm and not stuffy and very clean. Bathroom was clean; right next to a Starbucks and a 5 min walk to Empire State Building. Overall, great room for the price.

Unfortunately the facilities were disappointing. Mentioning breakfast including was quite misleading. There was fixed menu breakfast with adjacent café area, that too was quite horrible. No ironing facility was available, we would need to ask for it. No locker available.

Excellent location next to the Empire State Building. Rooms clean although a little bit small (frequent in NYC), bed comfortable and friendly staff. Good value for money

My daughter and I stayed in this hotel on Dec 23 so we can stroll around New York at night around Christmas time. I expect the rate of hotels would be pricey since the date is very close to Christmas. But I was able to use Orbitz bucks so that gave me a discount. This is a nice and modern hotel. Very good for the price since hotel is located along 5th Ave. where designer stores, Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick's Cathedral are located. Hotel is a block away from Empire State Bldg and Macy's Herald Square. Rooms are small but clean, linens and toiletries are of high quality and decors in the room, hallway and lobby are with modern touch. Adjacent to the lobby is Starbucks and hotel is surrounded by restaurants. Walking distance to subway station and PATH train. Would definitely use this hotel again in the future.

wish I had been able to check in before 3pm--and there was some street noise--but that's NYC!

The room was tiny, even for New York standards. There was no iron or ironing board (the staff said someone else in the hotel was using the only ironing board available, after I made clear it was unacceptable, they bought a new one for me, so now the hotel has two!) the old noisy window AC unit hung over the bed and spewed dirt and mold on top of me and the bed when it turned on so the sheets were always soiled. On the plus side, no bedbugs!

Staff were very friendly and helpful! Water was burning hot one day, then cold the next. Engineer was called in to fix it.

We have stayed at this hotel 4 times. The staff are friendly and helpful. Great location and surprisingly quiet for NYC!

My room was pretty much a bed and a bathroom and that's it. It was quite small and even the hallway was a bit claustrophobic. But I just needed somewhere to sleep for the night for work the next day so it served it purpose. The bed was very comfortable and the A/C was powerful, the price was reasonable for a last-minute booking but if you're looking to be wowed, this is not that place.
