This is now a homeless shelter. I wish TripAdvisor would take this off their listing as a "hotel": It has been a homeless shelter for several years. I live near this so called hotel and know from first hand expereience this is NOT A HOTEL...HOMELESS SHELTER. DO NOT TRY AND BOOK A ROOM HERE.

You get what you pay for with this place, its cheap for a reason. What you save on hotel costs you end up paying for in travel expenses. Its miles away from the exciting bright lights of the major tourist attractions. And although we did grow to love Harlem by the end of our 10 day trip, it does take... More

The reviews so far have been correct. The accommodation is dull and bland, but considering I searched high and low for reasonably priced accommodation in Manhattan and couldn't find a thing, this was well worth the money. It is situated in Harlem, which in the day time is fine, walked about there many days to and from the subway station... More

After reading up on the Apollo Inn we decided too book with it. $70 includes tax each night. We thought this was a great stay, we are two young travelers. The rooms were clean with... More

OK, well first you drive into Harlem, which is a culture shock at first. The hotel....well for a hotel that opened in March it looked pretty destroyed. I had a broken chair in our room, the sheets looked 100 years old (almost see-through with fuzz). If you are interested in a kitchenette for budget purposes (as I was)... stop!!!! It... More

I went to NYC to pick my girlfriend up from the airport on May 31, 2006, and we needed a place to stay on our first night in the city. Being on a budget, i couldn't afford most hotels in the city, and so i was happy to find the Apollo through this web site. My double with en-suite bathroom... More

Overall, the hotel is clean and convinient. The location with such a cheaper price is amazing. If you want to stay there, please bring your own stuff. The hotel has independent rest room, but they don't have hair dryer(even the counter). It has a stove, but no pot or any kitchenware. It is located in the city, but it is... More
