Central locationn midtown manhattan

Posted May 2, 2015
Pros: Location, modern, clean,
Location: Close to grand central and not far to penn stations. Time square and broadway only minutes away. Direct line to central park and museums or downtown .
Very comfortable hotel in manhattan, modern rooms with good bathroom and adequate space in bedroom. Basic facilities, no fridge, etc. Only 10 min walk to grand central and 15 to times square. Very popular bar with young locals. Easy to get on subway to anywhere on the subway. Just a couple of minutes to east river. W9ould certainly stay again.

Ok overall. Good price for NYC

Posted Apr 30, 2015
Pros: Centrally located. Good price.
Cons: Inform guests when rooms have unusual negative features at the time they are booked or if the accomadations have changed at check in.
Inadequate staff for check in. Room had an outdoor roof with air conditioning unit on it outside window. The roof top was filled with cigarette butts. Very unpleasant.

Hôtel très bien situé

Posted Apr 28, 2015
Pros: la situation - la décoration
Cons: le petit déjeuner
Hôtel parfait pour une visite d'une semaine. La chambre est certes petite mais parfaitement équipée et suffisante pour juste dormir. La literie est très confortable et la chambre est très propre. Cet hôtel est très bien situé près de la gare avec les accès métro. Le personnel est très agréable. La terrasse au 17ème étage est un plus ainsi que le bar. Seul le petit déjeuner est un peu léger

Excelente ubicacion....Habitaciones minimas

Posted Apr 27, 2015
El hotel esta muy bien ubicado, a 10 minutos caminando de las principales atracciones de NY. Esta limpio y esta nuevo.men el lobby hay un bar muy popular y agradable. Sin embargo lashabitaciones son micro! El baño esta a centimetros de la cama y es un poco incomodo para mi gusto.

Great hotel, just small

Posted Apr 27, 2015
The hotel was really really nice, it was just really small and the shower (my husband liked, but as a woman, you will not like the pressure of the shower unless you are standing backwards) but its location was perfect for the city and this was the cheapest and nicest hotel we could find! They also have restaurants in the hotel.. Very happy with our stay

Functional, practical low(ish) cost stay for NYC

Posted Apr 27, 2015
Pros: Bed. Excellent sleepage.
Location: Hunan Chinese - superb. Also excellent Thai, on the corner just up the hill.
I wanted somewhere to stay that gave me good access to the city, plus to get to Javitts Center in the mornings. The POD is 15 mins walk from Grand Central Station (easy to get to by bus from Newark airport). The location itself is fairly quiet, not much to do directly but a 10 min walk to 34th St I can take the but direct to Javitts, great. The hotel doesn't do much in the way of food, but who cares ... literally up the hill round the corner is the Hunan Chinese restaurant, and thats some of the best Chinese food I have eaten anywhere for lunch or dinner. For breakfast, walk along the main avenue you'll find American diners, so no worries. The rooms here are minimalist but VERY comfortable bed (mine was Queen size) and excellent bedding. Shower also, very nice quality. Apart from that you won't want to stay in the room much as space is very limited, so get out to town its why you are here! On the 17th floor is a roof top bar area, busy on a Sat night. Views from here are ok, you can see over to the WTC building, and if you crane the neck a bit of Chrysler building. My room was on the 17th, no interesting views out my window. I'd stay again for sure, the hotel is well managed, safe, secure and does what it says on the tin.

Not for old folks!

Posted Apr 26, 2015
The room was very well kept and quiet. Service at the front desk and the downstairs bar was very friendly. However, for 72-year-olds such as my friend and I, the room was cramped and the upper bunk quite difficult to climb into. My mistake, since I knew there would be a bunk bed. For young people, I would think this hotel and its lively bar are ideal, and I would stay there again if only they had a different bed setup.

Pros: Location, price, convenience.
Location: Try eating at one of the places on "Curry Hill." If you like Indian, you can't go wrong.
The hotel was nice, clean,and close to where we wanted to go. Staff were extremely cool and helpful. The bar restaurant was also very hip. We will go again if we can.
