Very small rooms, limited amenities, great location.

First room we had was the size of a cell. No room for luggage or a refrigerator which is included if you request it. Beds are very hard. Bathrooms are so small there is little room for your things. We did get a room change though small it was just big enough. Gym too small and did not have equipment I use. There is no coffee/tea service. However, you are in a great part of town. If you like to walk everything is reachable so you won't be stuck in your room.

Below average, run down & in much need of a makeover

This hotel is in heritage style with old lifts. Very old inside & need of a makeover. Rooms are so small you can't really even move around inside. Would never stay here again. The only thing that was a positive is that the staff were friendly & upgraded our room for us but even then the room was horrible. This really needs a makeover and even at the cheap price it's still not worth the money. I'd rate it a 1 star

Tiniest room in town?

Ever so friendly staff, and after a short prodding got the air/room cooler that I requested. The room is the tiniest I've ever stayed in, and you could barely fit a suitcase, let alone two, and your shoes, on the floor space in this room. The room was too small for them to even fit a chair. This didn't bother me, as I travelled on my own this time, bed was of great quality (which is really important to me, a person with a bad back). The bathroom was tiny, and very little space to hang or put things, such as toilet bag. I certainly don't mind only a shower, especially since I think we need to conserve water, but moreover for the fact that I shower at the gym. I do not recommend this hotel if you are on your first romantic trip abroad, and not if you intend to spend any time other than asleep in the room. It was perfectly adequate for my needs, to sleep only, having a peaceful night and no bedbugs.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

9th Avenue has a multitude of great restaurants. In fact, just before you get there, on 51st Street, same side as the hotel, is a great tiny European wine bar. On 9th Ave, b/w 43/44th is a outstanding Argentinian restaurant called Chimmichurro. Highly recommended.

New York City Adventure

Excellent location but on check in make sure you request a room off the main street otherwise you will be awak all night due to the noise. Room was clean but mouldy showers.

This Boutique hotel is in a great

This Boutique hotel is in a great location in a residential street just off the noisy theatre district & times square. The rooms are small, some may say tiny. If travelling by yourself, the rooms are more than adequate. Couples may feel squashed. This is New York, little time is spent in hotel rooms. There is so much to do & so many places to eat at all hours in New York. The hotel offers free wi-fi, maps & guidebooks. The free wi-fi was excellent as in most bigger hotels in NY, you have to pay a small fortune for the wi-fi. Overall a great hotel, location & price.
