Very good 8.0 From 3,669 reviews

Good 6.0
Ok, good location.
The hotel is fine, except the shower tap did not turn on hot water properly, and the lifts were quite poor. You could wait 10 minutes for a lift to stop at your floor that you could get in. During the day only 1 lift was available.

Good 6.0
Ideal for some, not for me
Hotel was clean and tidy but far too small for two people trying to sleep and get ready.
E, gb2 night trip
Fair 4.0
Hidden extra charges
I had pre paid the room but upon arrival was told that although I had pre paid I had to pay £30+ for extras such as the concierge and WiFi etc. After a long flight I was too tired to argue the point. Very small room but OK for 2 nights.

Exceptional 10.0
Great place to stay
Really lovely hotel, with a cool interior, and awesome view from the roof terrace. Friendly helpful staff, and Clinton Hall bar and burger joint (with entertainment from Izzy Uncut’s Drag Bingo and amazing music from Guitaro5000 just added to the stay) Great location meaning lots of things are in easy walking distance, and 51st subway station is only a block away)

Very good 8.0
Excellent location, would stay again!
New York’s expensive to stay in, this was one of the more ‘affordable’ hotels. Excellent location, a short walk to Times Square and a local subway stop which is a single line to the JFK airport train. The room was very small, more suited for a single person with not much privacy in the en-suite bathroom, but it was clean and tidy and served its purpose. Would definitely stay here again though and can’t wait to get back to New York! Please note some rooms may have the air condition unit outside the window, we searched for the off switch as it was fairly loud to find it was already off! So may need earplugs!!
