No complaints at all. Great hotel!”

Excellent reception service and very good size rooms for New York. Bed was very comfortable too.

About 20 mins walk from Times Square, but very close to Grand Central Station and to the Chrysler building and Empire State. Don't miss Bryant Park if you go close to Christmas. It's 10 mins from the hotel and a real little winter wonderland. The rooms are modern, clean and a very good size. The guest services are impressive and they have a hotel car that takes you to the airport for the same price as the yellow taxis. I thoroughly enjoyed the hotel.

Pretty amazing!”

This is an older hotel that has been refurbished. The room was huge with a king-size bed and a good-sized bathroom. It was GREAT value. The room had everything I needed and more. The location was really good, too. It was in a slightly less busy part of Manhattan yet centrally located. It was close enough to walk to the many attractions around NY. The only complaint I have was that the hot water didn't work and took a long time coming. Because it is an older hotel, the fittings and pipes are also old. I had to call the maintenance staff to get it running. The maintenance man was professional and efficient, and got my hot water running soon after. All in all, an absolutely FABULOUS stay!

A great budget hotel , great location just 5 minute walk to Grand Central - 20 minutes to Central park & Times square.The rooms were a good size, comfortable & clean,the bathroom could do with an upgrade. The soundproofing from the neighbouring room was excellent & street noise is to be expected form a downtown hotel. Our group decided to eat breakfast around the corner as the hotel breakfast was a little expensive for what is was. The staff were excellent( accommodating & very helpful) , we had some fun banter with them. I would definitely stay there again .

However, there is wi-fi in the lobby and 2 computers you can use. Would definitely stay there again and will recommend it to family and friends.

Nice location and hotel!”

We really enjoyed our one night stay here. We were on a second floor room, tucked into the back. Overall the hotel location is SUPER and the whole hotel feels clean and fancy. Room was not as tiny as it could have been for NYC and, because it was an old building, the walls were super thick and it felt all very solid. The only flaw we had was that there was a random loud CLUNK sound every 15-20 minutes. Just random enough not to be able to really report it to anyone. We suspect it was the air conditioner or some vent, though it didn't match the timing for it clicking on or off (or maybe a door or something below us since we were on the 2nd floor?) Since we were only there one night and slept with ear plugs anyways, it wasn't enough to dig into. It did seem to stop between midnight and 6am, but was back clunking at 6:30 when we were leaving. But would have complained or been an issue if we had stayed longer. But was great deal and great hotel with Agoda sale price!

location, room condition, amenities

Pleasant stay, although the front-desk staff was not that friendly. Other staffs were okay, room was clean. Location was just okay two blocks away from Grand Central Terminal and approximately 7-10 blocks to Times Square. Close to United Nation and Chrysler Building. Another Subway is about 7 (short blocks) East (Lexington Ave. + E. 53 St.). Quite safe area to walk even early in the morning ~ 5 a.m. Food and groceries are about one block from the hotel.

Hotel is in a great location on E42nd St. Easy walking distance to central park, Times square etc. The hotel facilities are basic. We had a nice big room with a large comfortable bed. Although the fixtures and fittings, decor etc are a little dated we would stay here again. We did book quite far in advance however and got a good price. On looking at prices shortly before we arrived, we thought it was rather expensive compared to more modern hotels with better facilities. We looked at staying an extra night but this was going to cost us more than half of what we paid for the previous 3 nights. It is Manhattan though and you have to shop around.

Good enough, but old”

The hotel is old. Not the most efficient set up you will see, but that is compensated by its staff, who are very nice and helpful. The hotel rate is deceptively low. The "resort fee" (for having safe in your room, among other things) they charge you upon checking in is essentially the part of the nightly rate they do not advertise.
