    This was a fantastic find for a single traveller! The hotel was very cool, had a great vibe and was fantastically located. A couple of subway stops very close by. The room was beautiful and perfect for one person with a really lovely bathroom too. It’s well worth the price considering what else is on offer in the city.

    Excellent place to stay with reasonable prices (for NewYork!). Location one block from metro stop with many surrounding restaurants. I had private room and bath which was small but quite functional and clean. Well decorated also! Staff very friendly and helpful. Felt quite safe. Rooftop bar, nice large lounge, breakfast/lunch cafe, and nice restaurant on site. Highly recommend!

    Fantastic hotel! The staff were amazing & super helpful. Rooms were clean & had everything I needed for my stay. Enjoyed dinner at Simon & The Whale which was one of the best meals we had during our week in nyc. Both bars & the studio were great locations for drinks/snacks with friends & all offered happy hour at different times of the day/night. Location was great & walking distance to many main attractions & several metro stations. I would definitely stay here again when visiting nyc.

    Although I waited two hours for my room to be ready after 3pm check in, it was a really lovely room. For a solo traveller it was small but had everything I needed. The bathroom really shocked me with how big the shower was and the lovely toiletries they had available. Both a TV and radio in the room, along with a mini fridge came in handy for keeping water cold during the hot days. Wasn’t overly happy paying a facilities fee as I didn’t use any of the facilities other than WiFi.

    Booked on a whim while being a councelor at summer camp so we could see the city, honestly one of the best places I’ve stayed, easy to get to, room was amazingly clean and had plenty of room for three people. Being able to access the lobby 24hrs was great as it meant we had lots of time to explore the city before checking in. Only issue was the fact my prepaid visa didn’t work and we had to rely on an american friend to step in and pay, however, people had already mentioned that! Would recommend

    I really liked Freehand NY. I felt safe and comfortable in the hotel thanks to the staffed lobby and well designed room layout. I was in a single room which was very small but made the most of the space available. I appreciated having this option rather than having to pay for a double room as a solo guest. Guests should note that the taxes and service charges do add up although I still felt that my room was reasonably good value for money. Cafe and bar in the hotel very cool and a nice treat!

    This is a well situated hotel with good amenities. We reserved a bunk type room for 4 of us which was clean and attractive but much smaller than I expected. Good photos really can make a room look so spacious! We had a trouble on our second night (a Monday) with really loud music from the bar below us going on until after 11pm. Took a visit to the front desk and a chat with a manager to resolve. Also I got clobbered pretty hard by an elevator door on our 3rd day. Staff responded quickly

    Enjoyed stay, but 18% tax added to final bill. Management waived fee, but only after an hour wait. They will try not do this again. You must call them to see complete cost with last minute added tax and facility fees.

    The bar is great but expensive. The staff are really friendly. The location is great and close to the subway. The rooms are quiet and spacious. The only worry I had was that people going up the elevator to the bar also had access to the room levels.
