great location!

Posted Apr 23, 2014
This is a great hotel that is in close proximity to midtown, grand central station, and subway lines. On the first floor is one of the best taco restaurants in NYC, Salvation Taco. Highly recommended!

Tiny, but really all you need for a short visit!

Posted Apr 22, 2014
The room was adorable, the beds were very comfortable, and the staff was excellent. We never made it to the hotel bar or restaurant, so can't really comment on those. Wonderful location. The only cons were the steps to the upper bunk - nearly impossible to navigate in socks, let alone while carrying something (a laptop, a drink) - and the showerhead being centered over the shower floor - there was no room to step away to lather up. Otherwise, a really cool place!

Small and perfectly adequate

Posted Apr 21, 2014
Cons: The towels are thin and tiny and rough, like something you'd get at a motel 6.
Location: The lamb shank tacos at Salvation Tacos rock!
Nice place, but as you can expect from the name, very small, very pod like, but then again I didn't come to NY to hang out in my room. The staff was friendly, the location, great. The only negative thing I can say is that the room smelled, and when I found the source of it - the comforter - I was a little grossed out. It smelled pretty awful, like it hadn't been washed in a long time, if ever. And this is coming from somebody who is not a super clean freak.

Single Female Traveler

Fab hotel, very close to Empire State Building and Grand Central. As a single female traveler I felt safe and secure in my room and I general the hotel was a fab base for my New York stay. There is nothing that I could fault.

The room was incredibly small but compact and useful. the one we were staying was very noisy. It was something like an A/C disorder. But the desk quickly upgraded our double room to a queen size with no extra cost.

Excellent location and roof terrace

Posted Apr 21, 2014
Loved the comfortable bed, the shower, the easy and free wi-fi, the lovely roof terrace with views of both the Empire State Building and the top of the Chrysler and a host of other details. But the best thing is the location, only a few blocks from Grand Central, which made covering the whole of Manhattan and some of Brooklyn by subway super-easy.

Close to grand central terminal

Posted Apr 19, 2014
Pros: Bang for buck
Cons: TV bracket needs to be able to rotate
Location: Grand central close by and then subway to anywhere you desire. Bagel express very close good for breakfast.
Small room but good spot. Short walk to grand central with east west or north south subway lines. Bed a bit a short if you are 6' and over. Staff friendly bed made every day and room clean.

Great location!

Posted Apr 18, 2014
Pros: Great location!
Cons: Heating system
Location: Near Park and Lexington Avenues. Short walk to great restaurants like Smith & Wollensky. Also found super pub called Park Avenue Tavern near 39th
Super location for a businessman working on the east side of Manhattan. Rooms are small and somewhat stark but the are clean and fresh.

Perfect for seeing everything in New York

Posted Apr 17, 2014
Stayed here for four days with my daughter. It was perfectly situated for getting around New York. Room small but exactly what we expected. I would stay again.
