The Gallivant Times Square
Great hotel fantastic location super friendly staf
Fantastic hotel super friendly staff. Very clean and so close to everything I would highly recommend this hotel and return no problems.
Gordon, gb7 night family trip
The Gallivant Times Square
VERY small rooms
10/10 for location for sure - within a stones throw away from Time Square and Metro, due to the location it was also very noisy - which we expected , especially with a fire station around the corner, so no deduction there. however 3/10 for room: I have never paid so much money for such a small cupboard room and tiniest bathroom. Whilst some might say - that is NY for you - no it's not. We traveled in a group of 18 and hotels that others stayed in where equally pricey with MUCH better room and bed sizes! Food wise: there is a restaurant next door which we didn't try and a coffee shop opposite, which is ok. With Hells Kitchen just around the corner, walk for 10 minutes and find yourself a diners - you won't be disappointed!

The Gallivant Times Square
Recently stayed here looked lovely in lobby area sadly only 1 lift was working and my room was very dated chipped furniture not really a wardrobe a door into the wall with a hanging rail there was coffee maker hairdryer but I expected much more like a travel lodge rather than a hotel breakfast was expensive I didn’t bother nor did I eat or drink in here rather the bar next door can’t rwally comment on staff as didn’t speak to anyone on my visit other than on check in as I left I just posted my key in the deposit box overall really disappointed with this hotel for the price that I paid it wasn’t worth it

So convenient
Perfect position so close to everything. A little worn and the lifts are slow but otherwise so convenient.

Very Good8.0
Great location.
The Gallivant was superbly placed for Broadway/Times Square area. We were in town for Springsteen on Broadway which was in the theatre virtually opposite! For the first two nights my friend and I had a room each.(I had booked these separately after a change of plans). The rooms were comfortable and a decent size for one person. I think they would be ok for a couple for a short stay too. For the 3rd and 4th nights my friend and I shared a twin room. The room was of adequate size and the beds were comfortable. Out only criticism was that we were unable to open the window at all, and the room was incredibly hot. Even altering the thermostat on the rather ancient heating/ac unit made no difference. If management could sort this problem then the room would be ok. Staff were friendly and helpful on all occasions.
