comfortable hotel

I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel its far enough away from all the madness but just a small walk away from shops or visitor sites. I didn't have a huge dealing with the staff but when I did they were very helpful. The only moan I have is the same as previous reviews the lift, there should be two but 1 was broken our whole stay so it could be a while before it was empty. The room was basic but comfortable and always cleaned well. Free internet in the room was a bonus. When we had an issue with the TV they sent someone up immediately. The food from room service (after 11pm) was delicious and delivered in the exact time given. Overall this hotel did not let me down

Great location and friendly staff.

We were six people in two rooms at this over hundred years old hotel. Everything was to our satisfaction, regarding beds and cleaning. The hotel had the super location only a minute from the subway, many local restaurants and stores. We would love to come back.

Great Place to Stay

The Lucerne was great. The staff was friendly ane helpful, the room was and comfortable. The room was larger than I expected. Great location; the subway is block away, Central park is two blocks away. My wife and I always stay on the Upper West Side of Manhatten and I think the Lucerne will be our new hotel of choice.

Charming hotel in Upper West Side

For a nice hotel that is moderately priced (for New York) this was a great stay. Just a block from the 79th St Subway on the 1 line it was easy to get to. Far enough away from the busy hustle and bustle of Times Square to be fairly quiet and relaxed, but only 6 subway stops to be right in the middle of the action. I started each day with a job around Central Park, which was only a 3 or 4 minute walk away. Staff were always polite and helpful and I the room size was plenty for me travelling solo. There were still 2 double beds in the room and a bathroom. If 4 were staying in the room it may have been a bit cramped. The addition of a fridge in the room would have been welcomed. It was a great base to spend some time in NY and provided a clean comfortable stay.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a convenience store directly across the road to keep stock of snacks and the essentials, rather than opening the $6.75 bottle of Evian left in the room.

Lovely hotel

I've always been curious about the Lucerne Hotel so I was happy when I was able to secure a room there at much less than other hotels in the area. My only complaint is that the bathroom was the smallest I've ever seen. Other than that the room was quiet, the amenities were tasteful and the say was more than satisfactory.

Nice Matin is a very nice restaurant. I've eaten there many times and never have had a disappointing meal. The hotel offers a discount coupon for breakfast which is great. Also, they have fantastic coffee.

Perfect stay!

First of all, here keeps cleanliness. Hotel staff is full of kindliness. Second, this is on nice location. There is a nice restaurants row on Amsterdam Ave. Service is good, not snob like trendy restaurants in Midtown. There are less people walking on streets than 5th Ave or Times Square so its environment is quiet and safe. I thought better of NYC and want to be the guest of the Lucerne again.
