Reminds me of an older dormitory
Posted May 13, 2015 on Hotels
You get a free pick-up and drop-off at the airport, which is great. In the room there are a mini fridge, a T.V. that is only 22 inches or so, a wardrobe that doesn't have enough vertical space to fit a long dress or long outfit, an AC unit and a ceiling fan. The shower did not have surrounding to keep the water from splashing all over the bathroom floor and on the toilet. The water did not get hot when I was using it but it might have been because so many other people on the floor had just used it. There was no shampoo, but there was a bar of soap. The bed was fine. Think of a dormatory style in an old building. The interior walls have scuff marks and an occasional crack on them. Just like in a dormatory, you will hear noises in the hallways until some time between midnight and 1 am, at which time it gets quiet. Then you hear the noise again in the morning. Breakfast is not included. They use room service for breakfast, and I don't think they have any dining hall. The building is on the same street (only wide enough for one line of cars traveling slowly each direction) as a farmer's-style market with tables and carts to sell fruits, etc. This street runs perpendicular into a main street that has the Times Square building . This building, along with nearby shops like a cafe, is only about a 5-minute-or-so walk from the hotel. Walking across the main street takes some "Frogger" skill, as the traffic has no full breaks in the flow.
