Room was hot
The room was on the third floor, the Ac unit outside was so noisy making it impossible to sleep. I ask to be moved and they gave the story of fully booked. The room was small and cramped. The mattress was hard as a rock.

Great location, but not the best room
The hotel is located right besides Central Park - a great place to start the Day! The lobby inn hotel Empire looks Great, but our rom was very small and in need for some redecorations...the wallpaper was starting to loosen, andre the bathroom had som waterdamage. Otherwise a god place to stay😀

Well past its prime
Hotel decor upon arrival is chic but then all downhill from there. There is no a/c in the bedroom corridors making it very stuffy. The a/c in the room is very old and noisy and not up to the job. Bedroom was tired and lighting poor. There is no closed in room 812 - only a small hole in the wall covered by a curtain. The bathroom is tiny and there was no door on the shower (but clearly used to be) allowing the bathroom floor to fill up with water. Water was $8 a bottle!! Even the in room coffee was $3!!. No free internet. In fact there is nothing at all included with your room rate. Continental Breakfast was crude although reasonably priced at $12. For £650 for three days the hotel represents poor value. Citizen M a much better bet.

Great location but very poor internet policy.
Since internet is free only at the lobby/mezzanine, this makes for an ideal honeypot for hackers. My phone got hacked when I was there. I complained to the front desk, but aside from the initial acceptance of my complaint, there was no follow through from the staff.
