Location is excellent, walking distance to almost everything you'll. Room was decent and clean; the toilets were clean and nice too. My room was right at the corner so had a bit of an issue with the wi-fi but other than that everything else was nice.

Perfect Midtown location for under $200

This place is perfect for anyone wanting cheap accommodation in New York in a great location. The rooms are small, but most rooms are in Manhattan. It is really clean and has everything you need, as long as you are prepared to share a bathroom. That being said, I never had to wait to use the bathroom, as they have a few on each floor. There are a multitude of eating places and bars in the area, so you are spoilt for choice. The bar downstairs even stays open till 4am. The hotel also has a cafe in the lobby for breakfast and there is a Starbucks around the corner. The subway station is only a few blocks up the road for access to up or downtown. It is an easy walk to time square or other midtown locations. Overall I would highly recommend his hotel, especially for the price. Would definitely stay again.

Quite small

The hotel was cleaned well and staff very good.. But the rooms are so small.. We found only one of us could move around the bed at one time.. It's a very small,room indeed. We booked a queen room, but I'm not entirely convinced it was a queen bed.. Only about 30 cm at the side of the bed... Location was good... Only 1-2 blocks from 51st station, and good restaurants around there.

Perfect!

This hotel is awesome! Best option for people visiting on the cheap but don't want to sacrifice living situations. The only thing that was bizarre was the tv was in a really weird and not useful place. So for the nights you are tired from walking around NYC and just want to relax and watch TV, it's a little difficult. Minor minor minor. This place is awesome.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't do the NBC Studio Tour. It was terrible and the pages who lead it clearly didn't want to be there.
