Excellent hotel and very handy location

Posted Dec 16, 2014
Pros: The hotel was nicely decorated, modern and fresh. The restaurant food and bar food was great.
Cons: Being English, I'd have loved to have had tea and coffee making facilities in the room like we have in UK hotels...
Location: The Empire State building is just a few minutes walk away as is Macy's department store. 5th Avenue is right near the hotel too.
The hotel was great and the staff were extremely helpful, nice and ever so polite. Would happily recommend for other travelers.

It was OK

Posted Dec 15, 2014
Weekend visit in December. Staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Hotel is very "boutique-e". Not like the chains. Probably more European in nature. Hotel very hot everywhere. Had to use AC in room and it was very hard to adjust. Rooms are small, bathrooms are tiny and shower is only half covered by a pane of glass. Bar on roof deck did not offer nuts or snacks. Neither did the bar on the main level. Mixed drinks were disgusting. Had to send them back. Little restaurant on main floor for breakfast was just OK also. Despite everything, the location is great. Easy walking distance to the theater district and shopping on 5th Avenue and 34th St. Would probably stay there again if the price was right.

Perfekte Lage mitten in Manhatten!

Posted Dec 4, 2014
Wie die Überschrift es schon verät, das Hotel hat eine gute Ausgangslage für Touristen in Manhatten. Wir waren Ende November für 7 Tage im "The Strand" untergebracht und haben es keine Minute bereut. Der Check-In hat reibungslos geklappt, das Hotel Personal ist äußert zuvor kommend und immer freundlich gewesen. Außerdem hat das Hotel einen nützlichen Concierge-Service für alle Arten von Anliegen. Das Restaurant/Bar im Hotel haben wir nicht genutzt, d.h. kann ich dazu keine Angaben machen. Nun zum wichtigsten nämlich der Lage: 2 Blocks entfernt vom EmpireStateBuilding 5-10 Minuten zu Fuß bis zum großen Bahnhof PENN-Station ( darüber liegt auch der MadisonSquareGarden) 5-10 Minuten zu Fuß bis zum Broadway 5-10 Minuten zu Fuß bis zum TimesSquare 5 Minuten zu Fuß bis zur nächst gelegenden Subway-Station 15-20 Minuten zu Fuß bis zum Ufer des Hudson River's Die Zimmer waren sehr sauber und wurden sogar noch nachmittags gemacht, wenn man einfach mal länger im Bett liegen geblieben ist. Wir hatten ein Zimmer im 19ten Stockwerk mit "Hinterhof"-Aussicht, man konnte auf die Dächer der umliegenden Häuser schauen und hatte einen typischen New York Ausblick. Die Zimmergröße war für 2 Personen und New Yorker Verhältnisse ausreichend. Bei den kalten Temperaturen war der kostenlose heiße Apfel-Punsch sehr wilkommen. Einziges Manko was uns nicht gefallen hat ist das der Kühlschrank mit einer automatischen Minibar ausgestattet ist und man so keinen Platz für eigene Getränke hatte.

Erinomainen hotelli keskeisellä paikalla

Posted Dec 2, 2014
Siisti ja mukava hotelli lähellä kaikkea. Times Square parin korttelin päässä, samoin MSG ja Empire State Building. Pieni miinus hotellin ravintolan tarjoiluista. Ylihintaisia ja annokset ehkä hiukan "fiinejä" ja erikoisia meidän makuun. Vähän myös annoskoot pienehköjä. Kai nämä trendikkäille salaatin syöjille menee täysin.

The perfect place to stay

Posted Dec 2, 2014
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing
Location: So close to the Empire State Building which is seen from the Roof top terrace. Very Central location for all sights with transport available close by
A close friend and I wanted to see the New York sights in 5 days. The hotel was of great importance to us what we were looking for was: security, reliable advice and guidance, comfort, New York views alongside good food/drinks with atmosphere for those evenings when we were too tired to venture far. Everything about the hotel exceeded our expectations and nothing was too much for the staff. We saw all the sights, we walked up town to Central Park, rode on the open top buses to learn all about New York and took a hop on and hop off boat trip - excellent advice given by us by the Concierge. The subway was also wonderful and close to the hotel, however we used the subway more for an experience as the Strand is located in an ideal location and we could walk to most attractions - Macy's and Empire State Building is just minutes away. Our room and bed was so comfortable, we both kept commenting on this as it was lovely to come back to after a long day. We ate breakfast twice in the hotel and had our Thanksgiving meal there in such a warm and welcoming setting. Fantastic time The Strand made it wonderful - thank you.

Este hotel es ideal para visitar Manhattan.

Posted Dec 1, 2014
Pros: Lo primero su ubicación, el personal y la habitacion, que está en la pl.16, muy bien.
Cons: A mi me ha gustado por su sencillez. Lo que pido a un hotel es que tenga la habitación con baño limpia y que no tenga ruido. Y lo tiene este hotel.
Location: Está andando tranquilamente a 12 minutos de Time square y a 3 de Empire
Ha sido muy agradable la estancia de una semana por esta tierra.
