Great location.Posted Jul 23, 2015
Considering the building is 115 years old the place is ok. The location is great but the inside needs upgrading. I wish the place had an elevator because going up so many stairs became exhausting over time.

Not a bad alternative to 2 star hotelPosted May 14, 2015
Pros: Apartment was spacious and inviting
Cons: The decor, especially the kitchen is very dated.
Location: Great location, especially proximity to Grand Central, shops and restaurants.
If you are looking for a cheap option for the family or a group of friends then this is a viable alternative to staying at a hotel.

Good location- but that's about it.Posted Feb 16, 2015
Even though this is a "guest house" and we didn't expect any hotel services, the facility was very disappointing. The location 35th and Park is excellent, but that is the extent of it. The building itself should be condemned. The stairs were decrepit and unstable. I was worried I would fall through the steps- The apartment itself was a good size but dusty and dirty. The radiators were noisy and the windows poorly insulated and as a result we could not sleep due to the street noise. I would not stay here again. I am surprised this building passed inspection code.

Good location.Posted Dec 16, 2014
Cons: Noise level mostly from floors overhead.
Location: Things nearby - Macy's 3 blocks. PierpointMorgan Museum, 5 blocks, Grand Central Station and NY Public Library close, Empire State Bldg. 2 blocks.
Building was clean. Very old, and because of this, people walking on floor above us very noisy at night when trying to sleep. Fortunately only a couple of nights was anyone occupying floor above us. Room too warm. Old boiler heating works too well. Otherwise, not luxurious, but beds were very clean and comfortable. Not a bad experience.

The StairsPosted Oct 23, 2014
Pros: location to transportation, empire state building, time square
Cons: when advertising, be very specific about the stairs and mobility issues. State which of the 2 rooms "do not" require climbing stairs,
Was aware that all but 2 of the suites required walking up stairs, did not realize that it would be 3 flights of stairs (54 stairs to be exact) to get to our suite; and really not good for someone who has mobility issues, such as a cane or joint replacements. A simple coffee maker in the room would have been nice, rather than having to use the kitchen which is shared with thee suite next door (noisy at times) Very old building (100 years old), and quite evident with the fixtures, and the sagging stair cases.

what a dumpPosted Sep 28, 2014
Pros: nothing, have pictures, my brother took one look and said "what a dump".
Location: location was good
There was no one there to talk or to greet you. Was told key was just a couple of doors down. It turned out to be half a block up and right on park and half a block down to 10 park place, where a guy dressed in black as I started to go in and pick up the key, began asking me what I was there for and I told him to pick up keys for house just off the park, then he started with what's you name, where do you think your going. It was awful and he followed me in to the desk clerk where he started yelling answer him. I asked him for the keys, gave the guest clerk my name and he threw an envelope at me, I picked it up and he yelled "your welcome". Left and made my way back to the hotel. When I got there could not believe there was no elevator. I was 4 flights up. I am 65 yrs old and last year had back surgery. These stairs are narrow and long as this 100 year old building has 10 or 12 ft ceilings. When I finally managed to get up the 4 flights and entered the apartment could not believe my eyes. Bathroom tile floor not complete, tiles coming off the wall, stove did not work, shower turned out to be lukewarm. Notes all over the kitchen telling you to clean up and take your own trash down to the side walk, window air conditioner had plastic over sides that was falling apart, closets dirty with dust and dirt. Left 1 small packets of coffee that made a cup apiece and was old. In packet listed a grocery store not within my walking capability and no delivery numbers.

Excellent for the price - better than a hotelPosted Sep 25, 2014 on Hotels
The guest house itself was built in the 1800s so the building is quite creaky and old fashioned, but I found this was part of its charm. We got a spacious apartment on the top floor (you get used to climbing the stairs) with all the essentials for a very good price compared to hotels in the same area. The guest house location was perfect for us, with only a short walk to the Empire State Building and midtown. We had a very relaxing enjoyable stay and would definitely book again.

great locationPosted Sep 10, 2014
this is a guesthouse not an hotel as it is clearly specified in its name. You'll be in a two bedrooms apartment in heart of Manhattan (without doorman). This is an old tenement house that belongs to the Community Churrch of Manhattan. The building is old, the carpet is thorn and the kitchen is dirty. But you are on Park Avenue and 35th and the price is unbeatable.

This apartment was adorable. You walk up a white spiral staircase to get to your room. I felt like I was immersed in a 1920s film. Just beautiful and the location could not have been better. Great bar scene just a block away. We had a kitchen and laundry room also which was a lovely surprise!
