Efficiently in SimplicityPosted Sep 30, 2014
From the front door in its a different kind of stay. Self checkin kiosks, robotic arm that stores your bag at bag check, rooms that retractable beds to save space in smaller rooms. A stay that dazzles you with simplicity and the only flash is the friendly staff.

Just what you want for a short stay in a big cityPosted Sep 26, 2014
Yotel is ideally located in the Hells Kitchen area close to Times Square with all amenities on your doorstep. Check in was very straightforward and staff were very helpful throughout. The standard rooms are quite small but hugely practical and cleverly designed to make the most of the space. The hotel was very clean throughout, has free tea, coffee and muffins, free pool tables and a very contemporary and relaxed feel throughout. Just what you need to wind down after a long day exploring the city. I will definitely be recommending Yotel to all my friends and family!

Very hip and for people with energyPosted Sep 25, 2014
Cons: prearrival communcation that there may be delays. Bed was hard as a ROCK
Location: Hudson River, Boat Tours, Times Square
Was disappointed that it took an hour and a half to get to the room from Laguardia. Normally it is a 40 minute Uber ride, however there was an environment march that closed the streets around the hotel. I would have liked some advance notice that there would be delays on the day of arrival that is beyond their control. This hotel was recommended due to business conference. The hotel is only a couple years old and is very hip. Purple lights, frangrace in the lobby to excite or relax depending on the time of the day. Staff wsa very friendly and helpful with any questions. I chose this hotel over the other options mainly due to location. It is approximately 5 blocks from Times Square, and 4 blocks from the Hudson River. I highly recommend doing the night tour which takes you all the way down the river to the statue of liberty, and then on to the East river.

Modern, Great Value HotelPosted Sep 16, 2014
Pros: modern and clean, comfortable , good location
Location: There is a convenient large pharmacy and supermarket across the road Times Square -about 20 mins walk(brisk)
We stayed in New York for 3 nights at the Yotel before travelling to Las Vegas and then returning for another 3 nights in New York and staying at another hotel. We found the rooms to be really comfortable, clean and well designed, they are small but there is easily enough room for a short stay. When we first saw the bed we thought it wouldn't be comfortable but it was actually a lot more comfortable than it looked. There is free tea and coffee on each floor and on fourth floor free tea/coffee and muffins in the morning.The muffins looked good but I don't like sweet cake for breakfast so we gave that a miss. There is no reception as such at the hotel but check in online at the lobby is quick and easy and there is staff on hand to help if required. They will also organise a hotel car to take you back to the airport (70 dollars which is the usual taxi price) We found the staff at the Lobby very helpful. We returned to New York to a different hotel which we thought would be more luxurious as we paid a lot more but we preferred Yotel and was disappointed we hadn't booked it for our return stay.

Hotel close to times squarePosted Sep 13, 2014
Pros: I loved that they provided free muffins that were very good in the morning and I liked the pool tables and club type feel to it.
Cons: The room we were in had a little damage to the bed and the bed was not padded enough.
Overall this hotel was very nice. It had a CVS straight across the street that was 24 hours which was nice for any little things you needed to grab and it was just a few blocks away from Broadway and several other great locations. If you're going to try and avoid taking taxis everywhere and you don't mind walking this hotel was close enough to go all around the place.

Combination Budget/BoutiquePosted Sep 12, 2014
Pros: Great price. Decent location. Very clean. Nice outdoor features (floor 4).
Good location . . . easy access to midtown/Times Square without the noise. Interesting/effective attempts at cost savings, such as computerized check in/check out procedures. LONG blocks back to civilization, but great cafés/restaurants in Chelsea, particularly on 9th Ave. Tons of young European tourists. Would certainly go back.

Very pleasedPosted Sep 11, 2014
Great experience staying at Yotel. Very clean, staff at the front was extremely friendly and helpful. We got to the hotel 5 hours before check-in however this was not an issue and we were able to check-in right then and there, free of charge. It cost $2 to store all of our luggage after we'd checked out but wanted to walk around the city for the day. I know everyone talks about the muffins...after staying there it was understandable why. They were delicious, and it was so convenient that they were available in the morning. The only things that could've been better were a more comfortable bed, and more privacy separating the washroom from the room.
