Cosy but clean hotel, I was surprised to find it very comfortable for this price in NYC. Very convenient to the subway, plenty of places to eat nearby. A short walk to Central Park too. Helpful staff, especially handy to have someone available to carry heavy bags up and down all the stairs. Would have preferred in-room wifi, though!

First, there was a problem with the booking, which meant we spent the first night in a private without ensuite - basically adirty shack with a padlock on the door. We had to convince the staff that leaving our luggage in the lounge room was not a secure solution when we had to check out and check in again. Booked room, private with ensuite, was slightly better - an actual room with modern bathroom. Bed however was very poor, with a permanent, spine-bending dip from a badly bent support. Avoid!

A bit of a trek away from the action, but great value for money, very clean and comfortable. Having to take the bus around is a small price to pay to get to see the area on a budget.

Handy downtown location, very clean and comfortable. Staff were exceptionally helpful and welcoming. Breakfast (bagels and oatmeal) was basic but a reliable start to the day. Being located downtown does mean quite a bit of noise outside most of the time, so if you're not able to adjust, you can grab some free ear plugs at the front desk.

Great little place, clean, comfortable and great value for its Hollywood location. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, and happily accommodated our early check in when we were badly jetlagged.
