Close to subway line 7Posted Feb 2, 2015
Hotel is easy to find,easy to go out. The subway 7 station is just opposit to the road. Maybe due to the road construction the car drivers are horning even in the midnight which You can hear clearly. No dinning hall for breakfast,you need to go outside. The staff there is quite nice.

Weekend in NYC.Posted Jan 27, 2015
The staff hete is excellent -- very helpful about issues concerning not just the hotel, but the neighborhood itself. The location is unbeatable, with a few blocks of public transport.

Ottimo Hotel, a due passi dalla metroPosted Jan 18, 2015
Siamo stati davvero bene, il persona dell'albergo è molto cortese e disponibile per qualsiasi esigenza. L'albergo si trova in un ottima posizione, molto ben collegato, le stanza sono senza fronzoli ma molto pulite e calde. Peccato per i lavori in corso in quel periodo in strada, ma non dipendeva da loro. Ottimo.

Broken StuffPosted Jan 10, 2015
Pros: Hotel staff was super.
Cons: The little things pull the rating down.
Location: One block to Whole Foods Market.
The hotel staff was really nice. Unfortunately the facilities were challenging. Shower did not regulate properly; water pressure poor. Unable to take shower. Heater was busted too. Elevator door scraped when opening and closing. Toilet seat didn't fit correctly; had to hold it open. TV and phone were busted so they upgraded my room with the problems discussed above. Yet it was clean and the staff was really, really nice.

Wonderful location, great price, free wifi.Posted Jan 8, 2015
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Gem for two nights after spending a night at the Marriott East Side. My first impression with the Gem was excellent, however, the hotel had some small issues that added up to be quite annoying. The toilet leaked a little (I fixed it), the remote didn't control the TV (had to get up to change volume and power on/off), the in-room phone only worked on speaker phone, and my room was shoe-box sized. With two big suitcases and two carry on we had essentially no room left on the floor and had to crawl over the (very comfortable) bed to get in/out of the room. Other than that, the room itself was very nice, has a jacuzzi tub, staff gave me excellent recommendations nearby. I really wanted to love the hotel but i think I most loved New York. The only thing I didn't was the car service I was offered. They said it was way cheaper than a yellow cab (it wasn't) and that I could pay with my visa since I was out of cash (the driver didn't take visa so I had to go to an ATM and get robbed by my bank for taking out money in the USA).

Good locationPosted Dec 8, 2014
We were accused of breaking the toilet that we never got to use because it was broken when we got there ,and they blamed us for breaking it he the manager called it suspicious what did that mean we did not understand that terrible attitude towards us accused us of everything very disappointed will never return there again

Good location. A little noisy.Posted Nov 16, 2014
Good location. A little overpriced compared to some others. Wifi was poor and occasionally not working.
