    Not perfect but a very nice hotel. ”

    Hotel was clean, rooms big, convenient location, pleasant staff and efficient service. Price was decent. The elevators were a little funky and not always working, coffee was downstairs (nice expressio machine) and there was no room service available. I would definitely stay there again.

    Great location, friendly hotel”

    Being on the corner of 5th and 32nd the location was amazing . Loved the size of the room. Coffee machine in foyer/lounge was terrific.

    We had a lovely stay of 9 nights in the 40sq junior suite with two double beds. There is a building site behind the hotel which was very noisy and we had problems with the heating not working but an oil heater fixed that. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. It was nice to stay in a small boutique hotel in a great location in NY. Lots of casual eating places nearby. Walking distance to so many places and subway stops. Beds very comfortable . Bath was a nice luxury too. I would stay here again, especially as it felt so central to everything and it had a nice, intimate feel to it.

Staff were helpful and friendly at all times and rooms were spacious and clean. Well done, Avalon!! Made our 25th anniversary trip very memorable. I would return, no question!

    Great place to stay ”

    The place is very accesible everywhere since the location is the heart of manahattan. The only problem we encounter is the 7am breakfast which i find a little late. We are joining an 8am tour which is a bit far from our hotel for a meeting place. We went down to the breakfast area around 6:45 am and ask if we can have something since we need to leave early to join a tour and the guy fixing the breakfast immediately say no we cant we have to wait till 7am. Hope they can serve early brekfast for those joning early tour or early flights. Over all we had a good stay. The guy in the front desk when we checked in wa really nice and accommodating. Oh the free coffee and hot chocolate is really a plus.

    Dishonest, undisclosed fees”

    You think you got a good rate for this hotel from Agoda, your email confirmation states that all fees and taxes are included but when you check out, the Avalon staff presents you with a bill that adds $40 / night for a "Residence fee". Surprise, surprise. They don't tell you anything when you check in, and when you ask them why you are being charged they tell you it's Agoda's fault for not including this. So I'm now reaching out to Agoda to figure out these extra charges. The hotel itself is nice - it has this old elegance that is charming. However, the elevator is terrible and the breakfast is not good, plus these mysterious fees on top of everything else makes me not recommend this to anyone.

    The most TERRIBLE HOTEL in my life”

    Avalon hotel was the most terrible experience of my trip. When I arrived at the hotel, they told me brazenly and unkindly that they had booked another hotel for us because they have no rooms.!! They received overbooking and canceled my room even though I made a reservation in advance several weeks ago. My old mother and I had to move our heavy luggages to the hotel they told me to go to. The room what I booked on Avalon was a family room but Avalon hotel booked a smaller, narrower and darker twin bed room for us. It was very very unpleasant.

    a gem”

    This hotel was truly a pleasant surprise in NYC. The room was big, especially per NYC standards. The staff was friendly and professional. I asked for towels to be brought up to the room, and housekeeping was expedient. There were some street noise throughout the night on the street side, but it did not keep me from sleep. The only dissatisfaction I have is the $20 facitlity/resort fee that was an addition to the standard city tax. Otherwise, it was a good stay.

    Lovely hotel, perfectly located to be central to all that NYC has to offer., yet peaceful and quiet. Rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. My only disappointment was that there are absolutely no coffee or tea making facilities at all in the room. You have to walk downstairs to the lobby. Other than this, I would defintiely stay again.

    Large room, good location, yet let down by noisy Air-Con”

    This is maybe the one of the biggest room in NYC in this price range. Locate on the KoreaWay street, not a pretty side of NYC, but you got the convenience of 7/24 dining option. Empire State Building just around the corner. Staffs are somehow friendly, but don't know resolve the problem if happened. The biggest issue that I won't be staying here again is - the air-Condition is really noisy, I mean really noisy, that I couldn't have a peaceful night sleep in 7 days - it's torture. I inspect few room that the condition all the same. It's a pity.

    A Pleasant Hotel in the heart of New York City”

    Staff helpfulness, Cleanliness, Location

    We had a very pleasant stay at the Avalon, NYC. What struck me was the helpfulness of the staff. In particular, when I had left my pair of pearl earrings after checking out on 14 July 2015. Upon my realisation, I asked the front desk staff if there was any possibility of finding my earrings. She took the trouble to check with housekeeping and came back to me soon with the earrings. I was absolutely impressed and certainly appreciative. However, there were a couple of other concerns which I thought the management at Avalon can improve on. One is the condition of the "ageing" elevators which stop unpredictably at different floors for different lift passengers. The other is the provision of essential bathroom amenities eg. toothbrushes, toothpaste & comb. These were not listed on the hotel's website and we were caught offguard. But it would be a nice gesture to provide a set at least. On the whole, I would say that I would like to return to this hotel in my future visit to NYC.
