      Location in NYC.

      Only way to get air into room was to start AC unit in window. Foul garbage smell then filled the room from enclosed garbage area. Decided to just sufficate instead.

    • Couple
      5.0

      The location is excellent, very close to main city attractions like Empire States Building, Rockefeller Center, Times Square, etc. Being close to those attractions the Hotel sorrundings are very quiet since is on the east side of 32nd street. The room was ample and the bed was ok. Very nice bathroom with an excellent shower and tub. The staff was ok, when asked for a cab they suggested getting a taxi in the street as a cheaper alternative to the transportation offered by the Hotel.

      The room was very dark, so staying during daytimes was deppressing. The room was not clean, espcially the rug that was dirty. We found a big roach (alive nd kicking!) running from the bedroom and into the bathroom. There is only one elevator in the Hotel so if staying at high floors it can take some minutes getting to your room.

    • Single
      2.4

      The manager was helpful and did not refuse the complains we made.

      The room was not clean at all and the sheets were not changed till make complain. The washing basin and toilet were blocked. I was not happy with our stay in the so called two star hotel.

    • Older travelers
      5.8

      I like the location, next to the subway lines 4,5 and 6 to go to downtown,East & West villages, SOHO, NOHO, China Town ...

      no tea/coffee making facilities in room

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Easy access to shops and resturant. Close to tourist attractions. Car on call for airport runs.

      The plumbing system needs attention. toilet would not flush properly, shower temperature extremely tempremental.

    • Older travelers
      5.8

      It was central clean and adequate,but not much more than basic shelter

    • Single
      6.6

      Although it was a nonsmoking room, I could smell smoke and the room also smelled stale. Internet access is not free and you are continued to be charged even when your computer is off.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      Truly excellent location. Attractively priced. Facilities basic but adequate in the hotel and with excellent facilities just outside the door for meals, shopping and site seeing

      I would have liked more natural light in the rooms...but it was central New York!

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      The diner next door was extremely useful as the hotel don't have meal facilities.

      The room was very dark and had no daylight coming in.

    • Family with children

      The hotel staff was excellent, the room was clean and the location was excellent. Great value! Thanks!
