Great place to stay

Location, Staffs and Clean room
It was great. We could walk to all central tourist attraction or just used public transport to go to every where. It is in the good area with clean environment and feel safe even walking out for food in the middle of the night, since there are many 24 hours shop next by.

Yeonsil L. Solo travelers South Korea, August 2, 2015
It was good except the size of the bed.

The location, Yogurt and musli every day, Good coffee in the room
The location of this hotel is really good. You can use several lines of the subway. It was convenient to go to the air port using the subway from this hotel. I could eat several flavor of yogurt, musli every day. It was free. I could enjoy good coffee every day in my room. The hotel was really clean. However the size of the bed was really small. We reserved the room for three so two people hdd to lay on the same bed. It was so uncomfortable because the size was quite small compared to other hotels I've ever experienced. The size of the bed for two people was like the size of one person. I'm sure.

Location. Room size. Cleanliness
Our stay was wonderful. It was a perfect location because we march in the St. Patrick's Day parade. My husband would've liked coffee in the lobby he doesn't like the coffee in the room. I loved the yogurt and granola. The staff was so accommodating it made us feel very welcomed.

Susan B. Couples United Kingdom, December 8, 2014
excellent location, friendly staff, faded elegance

loved the room, the location and the yogurt!
Enjoyed the quirkily furnished room( all the lamps switch end on differently) and it was a warm retreat after cold and windy wet streets.The granola was a great idea. There was a wonderful view of the Chrysler Building from the front of the hotel and lots of places of fame within walking distance. Staff told us of good restaurants nearby.We would love to come again. Thanks

Nakano M. Solo travelers Japan, November 23, 2014
Good Atmospher

Atmosphere, Location, Staff
It is a classical hotel and the atmosphere is family-like and good. Though the building is old and facilities in a room are not new, there is no problem for staying. The location is very good and within a walking distance from the Grand central Station and the Fifth Avenue. The staffs are senior people and very reliable. The complementary Greek yoghurt in the lobby lounge is very fine!
