Stayed here over new year and in terms of quality you really do get what you pay for. The room was small, and the bed creaky. The shared bathrooms were truly awful, with a flimsy shower curtain separating you from the world.
The corridors have an air of foreboding that would be inspirational if you were Stephen King, but otherwise are just plain creepy!
Staff aren't up to much, pretty blunt and not interested in anything but the basics!
Having said all that, the location is second to none. 1 minute from Central Park, 10 minutes from Times Square. And at Christmas and New Year you really can't put a price on that!
