Very good 8.0
Great value for money and good location
Room was better than expected and staff were friendly. Close to subway and local eateries. Location was good for exploring uptown and downtown

Room review
The room was small as expected and the service was generally good. When we arrived the room wasn't ready but they quickly moved us to another room. The only issue was a draught from the window which we couldn't close due to the air conditioning unit
Richard, gb3 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Avoid at all cost
Not impressed at all. The room was nothing like the picture on the website. A computer error at the hotel left prevented us and another family from checking in. Despite having already paid and having proof of this, the hotel refused to give us a room and we’re happy to leave us all in the cold lobby. Despite having rooms available, the manager refused to let us have a room and was not prepared to speak with us. Avoid at all costs.

Get what you pay for
We only stayed 2 nights and it was a great price for the location. Amenities are pretty basic but when you’re out 90% of the time it was a good base to lay our heads! Room was small and bathroom smaller but you get what you pay for I suppose!
Chloe, gb3 night romance trip
Fair 4.0
Cheap with a half decent location
I know this is cheap when comparing new york but i had to comment on this hotel, i had booked a double with shared bathroom Location is reasonable as it is only two stops from times square on the express subway using 2 or 3 line i had to ask for my room to be changed as the room was nothing like the pictures, it was about a third of the size with a hot water pipe running up through it that meant it was like a sauna, this room was very bad, i have never asked in my past to change rooms but this was just awful The second room we was given was more like the pictures, it was a little run down and maintance of the building looks lacking, for some reason they were painting things a lovely shade of brown! The locks on the door were flimsy and when someone came through the outer door it would feel like someone was trying to get into the room, as for the outer door, the banging from these was very loud as there was no closers on the doors Linen was changed everyday and was actually very good, this was a plus for the hotel Overall the hotel looks as though it has seen better days but simple things like door locks and a decent colour of paint and the place would look so much better
Ashley, gb4 night romance trip
Poor 2.0
Awful hotel.
Absolutely rubbish. Never seen such an awful hotel. No internet at all. Did asked for refund as I couldn’t stay there for my next stay but was not given. Very strong smell. None of the room lights were turning on.
Ajmal, gb2 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Very nice and convenient hotel.
Overall this hotel was great value for money. The staff were extremely helpful, efficient and polite and our room was serviced every day. The hotel location is great - mainly because it is near a subway station. It took myself and my partner around 3 to 4 minutes to walk to it. The general area is also good as there are food shops nearby and it feels safe and somewhat residential, with a sense of community. Our room was a bit small for us - but we managed to make the best use of the available space and it really wasn't a problem. I would definitely return to this hotel as it represents very good value for money.
