Great Location Even Better Restaurant ”
Life was great! The staff are really friendly, the rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The location is really good to get anywhere in Manhattan or Brooklyn. It is a little noisy but that’s to be expected anywhere in Manhattan. Also the elevator that goes to the 10th floor is really slow so you’re better getting the one to the 9th and walking up the last flight of stairs. Most importantly the restaurant is absolutely fantastic! Best food we’ve had in a long long time!
It was good for the most part”
Elevators were a bit slow and one of the two constantly broke while I was there, but the rooms were very clean and the service was great. The receptionist when I checked in was trying to "scam" me however. I first was put into a room that was not cleaned by accident, but I also noticed that it was not the room that I purchased - I booked a room that was larger and had city view. I told the receptionist and she immediately changed my room, saying that she "upgraded" to a room with larger bathroom. So I went to the new room only to find that it was a wheelchair-accessible room, which explains the larger bathroom etc. I complained again and waited and received the room I paid for. She was quick to admit and change the room for me but it was unprofessional of her to try to scam me like that. Other than that initial bad impression of the hotel, my stay at the hotel was overall pleasant. One very bad thing about the room is that the mattress is horrible quality and too soft.
Loved everything about this recipe hotel except the exceptionally unhelpful, no eye contact making front desk staff. 3 different women all needed a lesson or 5 in hospitality.
Low key sophistication. Great team, awesome bar and basement speakeasy. Restaurant is popular with 1st class food and funky low lighting. Bed in our room was huge and super comfy. A sanctuary nestled between 5th and Broadway.
Some may like it more than I did”
It may be a matter of taste, but I just didn't love this place. The rooms were a good size and bed was comfortable, and bathroom was good. What I did not love was having to walk through a very busy restaurant to access the hotel. The reservation desk is through the loud restaurant as well. The woman at the desk when I checked in was cold and bordering on short with me when I did not understand her directions to the elevator. Nice to have a small gym. No tea/coffee facilities in room; you need to go down to the second floor. Basically, I paid a lot of money for a room and no significant services or even interface with anyone at the front desk (apart from checkin) for the whole 5 days. Felt very impersonal and like I was rooming above someone's restaurant, rather than at a boutique hotel.
Trendy & great location”
Very trendy decorations and furnishings. Huge plus for including makeup remover towelette in the standard toiletries. Room a bit cramped but I suppose it's expected for NYC. Room was clean, but the bare cement screed floor felt a bit odd. Excellent location. Staff was exceptionally friendly.
Good location, trendy bar & restaurant”
Good midtown location close to the Empire State but not too busy. Staff are welcoming & helpful plus you get a free drink in the bar. There is a small gym on floor 2 and complimentary coffee machine opposite. We did not try the restaurant but this and the bar were very popular. Our room (802) was spacious for NYC with a comfy bed, good shower and a bit of a view to the south. It would have benefitted from a chest of drawers and the sofa bed had to be made up for our son. The lift is slow but the stairs seemed to work! Overall excellent value if you can get it (£200/night for all 3 of us after all taxes/fees were paid). You can get healthy lunch at Speedy’s round the corner (near 34th Street subway, 28th Street subway is slightly closer but make sure you enter the correct side for your route) and we enjoyed excellent breakfasts at Friedman’s, a couple of blocks west along 31st Street, who cater well for dietary requirements including gluten free.
Great Location Cozy Boutique Hotel”
Very accessible to Time Square, this hotel is in the middle of everything. Nice architecture, interiors have character. Rooms are a bit small with no drawers to store your things which is typical of New York hotels. Some staff were very friendly, some were rude too. Henry Restaurant in the lobby had good breakfast.
Lovely & comfortable accommodations,”
These accommodations were perfect for me and my husband visiting for a week in September 2018. It's a lovely building with high-ceilinged, QUIET (in the middle of Midtown Manhattan) room, comfortable bed, giant screen TV, clean pristine environment with friendly no-attitude staff. Situated between two subway stops, which provided convenient access to multiple subway lines, depending on which direction we were headed. Would definitely stay here again.
Great place to stay in NYC”
We stayed at Life Hotel for almost a week while visiting relatives in Manhattan. The room was just my style-simple and tastefully decorated. Bed was comfortable as was the bathroom- larger than other places we have stayed in the city. Central location made it easy to get around.
Great boutique hotel”
Great location together with a good bar and restaurant. My room was a little cold with the heater that doesn’t seem to churn out heat constantly
Great location and chic interior design”
Perfect for anyone who are visiting the city. It's only 5 minute walk to Macy's!
Never ever go to this hotel theres plenty of another good hotels.”
You have to pay extra 30$ per day to stay in this hotel. Know this cost, and decide. And radiator was extremely annoying.
AGODA FAILED TO CANCEL MY RESERVATION”
AGODA FAILED TO CANCEL MY RESERVATION. I BOOKED THIS ROOM ON AGODA WITH THE OPTION TO CANCEL IT AFTER THREE DAYS. I REMEMBER CLICKING CANCEL AND THEN MULTIPLE DAYS LATER RECEIVING A CHARGE FOR THE ROOM. NEVER USE THIS SERVICE. ITS A SCAM
Worth because the location”
Located between 5th Avenue and Broadway Street, 4 blocks from 3 different metro stations, its location is excellent for traveling. The room is small, very simple, just a bed, big tv screen, a desk far from light, no carpet, the floor is very cold. Have a noise warmer, but no frigobar neither microwave. Bathroom is ok, with a bathtub and hot water. In the second floor you get free coffe, hot chocolate and hot water (for tea) from a machine - there's no fresh water unless you buy somewhere outside.
Great location, close to good food and shopping. Few minutes walk to the subway station. Clean but small rooms, which is common in NY. We do wish we would have been informed, in advance, that the bar nor speakeasy would be open but with so much around, that wasn't a problem at all.
Overcharged in my card”
I've been paid all the fees for the hotel before our trip through Agoda. However, I got back and realized my card had been charged an amount of $58. I called them and they said that was the city fee. They told me they let me know when I first checked in but I was not informed anything. With the total price after 2nd charge, I think this hotel is worse than other hotel I had stayed during my trip. Such a bad experience there!
Small rooms, decent location”
I would recommend this hotel however, there are some points to note: 1. The Queen room was very very small. I had to push the desk in order to fit one medium sized suitcase. You could not fit two pieces of luggage. 2. The bathroom had no extractor fan and the tub was very slow to drain. There were shavings (not from me) all over the walls of the shower. 3. The air-conditioning was very noisy. I am a heavy sleeper and it woke me several times. On a positive note, staff were friendly and the hotel is in a decent location. From 7-9am there is coffee, tea and some pastries available. The hotel has a small gym. The toiletries provided are nice.
Spacious and good location ”
The room was spacious.
Reasonable hotel, with unexpected rate increase of 15% ”
The initial rate was reasonable (USD 200), yet upon arrival I had to pay alomost USD 30 facility charge. This was new to me and seemed very unlogical since I had ‘paid the entoire price upon booking’..The receptionist explained in a monotone way that this was normal. After more questions she explained I had to see this liek a ‘resort fee’. When I answered that this wasn’t a resort, she explained it’s for the use of the facilities. She came accross like she an answer for every question (I clearly wasn’t the first to complain about a prioce increase of 15%)> In my case I don’t care about USD 30 that much, but feel it’s not right to do business this way. The room was large enough, yet dirty (floor hadn’t been cleaned). The room was also cold, turningthe heater on prevented me from sleeping.
