Was slightly concerned that as the hotel was such good value for money, it would be full of squealing teenagers keeping me awake all night, but this wasn't the case at all, it was super quiet. The double room, which I booked as a single, was smart, fun and well equipped with USB point (very important) as well a safe,...

Clean, comfy, cozy! Stayed in a mini bunk pod with my daughter for 3 nights. Convenient location. Walking distance to everything, and subway. Staff was courteous. Would love to have them put a full length mirror in room, and tiny refrigerator for water bottles, or perhaps a vending machine with water.

Check in was fast! The hotel was clean. The room is small - booked a mini-bunk room. There's literally a set of bunk beds, a small desk, and a bathroom, but that's all we needed (a place to sleep and shower). Great value for its Midtown location (budget-friendly). Easy walk to Grand Central Station to take the subway all over...

Rooms are Very small and cramped however it is Manhattan and the hotel makes the use of the space it has.. This price is very reasonable, rooms are clean and it's a great location. Perfect for a short trip into the city on a tight budget.

Me and my partner stayed here for 7nights, the size of the room didn't really bother us, it was the perfect place to rest you're head after the hustle and bustle of NYC. The hotel staff are friendly and made recommendations on where to eat. The room was cleaned every day with fresh towels and was equipped with a hairdryer...

Great jem in nyc. Entire hotel is clean . Staff super friendly . Rooms small as expected but super comfy . Will stay here again for sure . Close to a lot of attractions . I don't suggest if you plan on staying in room all day .... But who does that in the city that never sleeps

Very central location or a very reasonable rate. Small, basic rooms but very clean, and with everything one needs for a comfortable stay. No cause for complaints. A nice looking bar downstairs, though I didn't try that out.

It has an excellent location, but it has too many rooms. So, it is abut overcrowded. If you are looking for friendly environment, it will not be your favourite place.There is a nice rooftop on the 17th floor. Don't miss it!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
