    Oly good thing is, the hotel is near to Timessquare and to other attractions.

    Not at all worth for the price I paid. During a phone call, I was told by the representative to park the car in near by parking garrage and get a 20% discount, but the parking garrage guy said there is nothing like that and I paid $110 for just 2 days. Absolutely unhappy and will never recommend this hotel or anyother pod hotels.

    the showers are fantastic, comfy beds, good location, all you need in new york

    if you stay in a room without bathroom, you end up walking back to your room in small towels unless you take all your clothes with you but it means risking getting them wet. Dressing gowns in the rooms would be really helpful

    As always when I book hotels they never live up to my expectation when I arrive, so I came here with an open mind but to my surprise I really liked it and loved the room...it was small but it was so clean, modern and perfect for the reason behind my trip. Would definately be willing to return here.

    The night receptionist woman was a b*%&h, so rude when I asked one simple question, the security guard, who was at the recpetion area at the time, actually followed my friend and I out to the street to help us out. One other thing was that the walls are paper thin, we were woken at 4am by some guy puking into a trash bin so that wasnt pleasant.

    Excellent use of functional design in a small package. Shared bathroom experience was great - always a bathroom available - they are individual bathrooms - 3 on our floor, with great facilities and lovely shower fixtures. It was like staying in an ikea display.

    The price for a nyc hotel is excellent. The bathrooms were very clean, the showers were a surprising joy with the rainforest shower head and the wall jets - plus the excellent body wash and shampoo. Friendly lobby personnel as well as the cleaning personnel. I look forward to staying there when warmer weather would permit me to explore the rooftop terrace.

    At times some of the other residents on my floor - young people - were quite noisy in the middle of the night.

    Excellent hotel for the price with very clean rooms. Location between subways, buses, Grand Central. Very comfortable beds, sheets and towels changed daily.

    Not the fault of the hotel but some guests were dirty, and noisy. There could have been better information at check in , inexistant about hotel rules, and facilities.

    I forgot my phone in the room after checking-out and I realized one hour later. I phoned the hotel and both the housekeeping and the reception staff were amazingly kind and I could go back a few hours later to pick up my phone.

    The street is a little bit noisy.

    Tidy, friendly, quiet, near subway, free wi-fi. The rooms are small but compact and very clean. Wifi can be used for free in the rooms and lobby. Staff is friendly. The concierge can help you with everything. They can arrange transport to airport. Located near a subway station. Good restaurants very nearby.

    It's not cheap, but New York is very expensive, so it's really good value for money.

    very nice location, close to Mets and Central Park. We stay here for one night. The room we stayed is very small and no bathroom but the price is very low (considering it is perfect location)
