The Deluxe guestroom, about 180 sqft, has an ultramodern interior, featuring an oversized tufted white leather king or queen bed draped in extravagant Belgian linens, a polished stainless steel desk and a Charles Eames-inspired black and white woven carpet. Lush red parachute nylon drapes block out the harsh light of day, and reveal the energy and excitement of the neighborhood when parted. All guestrooms are equipped with a 42 inch flat panel TV. In addition, the newly refurbished bathrooms will underscore the modern feel of the guestrooms with stainless steel tiles and a glamorous oversized backlit mirror. The private label bath amenities are custom-formulated, all natural based on the essence of spearmint to add a note of relaxed opulence to your distinctive accommodations.

    The rooms are very dark since most of them have windows that face (6 feet) another building. If you are planing to stay inside any lenght of time, it is very depressing. The lighting inside the rooms needs improvement.

    Location was excellent! Hotel is close to everything: theater district, Rockefeller Plaza/Top of the Rock Observation Deck, Central Park, Empire State Building... Staff friendly, especially Michelle and Vladimir.

    I didn`t like the darkness in the room - there was a tall building right next to the hotel, so there was no day light in the room at all! Also, I asked what my total was going to be for 4 nights, because Booked.net gives you the total excluding taxes. The staff gave me lower price while checking in and a higher price while checking out. I don`t know why noone gave me the contract or something when checking in. I guess that I made a mistake there, too. Overall, a good experience and perfect location: close to everything!

    Very close to tourist spots (which can also be a downside if you are looking for a more quiet neighborhood). Room was relatively spacious. Heating which cooked us was quickly fixed when asked.

    Noisy airco outside. Not much fresh air inside.

    Value for money, friendly-helpful staff, good location, good bed, enough space, comfort

    Room was dark, walls a bit thin and one could occasionally hear the neighbour's fan but not really a problem near bedtime.

  • Single

    The location was convenient for midtown activities and it was relatively quiet, except my last night, there were lots of very loud sirens which really startled me.

    The room was very small, and there was one window which opened up to a very dark and ominous alley with a fire escape. In other words, do not open the window! But it would have been nice to have some fresh air as an option. The water pressure in the shower was a little low.

    Convenient to many attractions and public transport. If you don't mind the size and layout of many European hotels, you should be okay. This hotel is housed in a rather narrow building with small rooms, bathrooms, and cramped hallways. My guest room was very clean, the bed very comfortable, hvac system satisfactory, and nice shower fixtures. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful as well.

    There were still remnants of disarray and musty odors from the recently finished renovation. Elevator is very slow.

    The location just off Broadway at 55th. Free Wi-fi.

    Tiny bathrooms. You and the hotel failed to mention it was still being renovated. The hallways are decorated like Alice in Wonderland. The platform bottom stuck out and we kept hitting it with our feet.

    The style of the hotel itself is very cool and modern, as the name suggests. And although the mattress was a bit harder than I'm used to, it was quite comfortable and all of the down pillows were a plus.

    The hotel staff, although friendly, were full of misinformation. The front desk told us to simply ask the person working in the morning to arrange a cab for us to the airport. In the morning, the person working said that since we hadn't arranged for a cab the night before, we'd just have to hail a cab on the street. Thankfully we found a cab pretty easily (even at 4:30 A.M.), but were frustrated--getting a cab to the airport is pretty basic info that the front desk should be able to competently advise guests about. Also, the front desk told us we didn't need to be to jfk airport until about 45 minutes before our flight. Thank God I checked the airport website--if you don't arrive at least 60 minutes before your flight out of jfk, you won't be boarding your plane. Also, when we asked for restaurant recommendations near the hotel, the hotel staff had very little to suggest and weren't familiar with the restaurants located less than 500 feet away. The hotel was also undergoing serious remodeling while we were there, which was generally okay but a little annoying. The hotel provides only one soap in the guestroom when there should be at least two--one for the shower and one for the sink. The water also didn't get hot in the shower--it's just warm. And there's nowhere to hang your towels in the bathroom after you've used them. We were literally trying to hang them over the bathroom door, but then you can't close it. Although the hotel provided a comfy robe, again they provided only one when I assume most rooms are occupied by two guests. Overall, the hotel is cool and nothing was seriously wrong, but it's the little things that add up...

    I like very much its position. The room is clean and there are 2 big beds.

    It is noisy during the night because of the air condition system and in the room there isn't very much light.

    Hotel was being renovated- bu staff was courteous and responsive; the room was clean and comfortable

    Bed was soft and comfortable.

    Staff did not like dealing with a Booked.net reservation and made me wait for over an hour before they checked me in. Room was not "modern" but painted in garish colors. Floor was uneven, carpet dirty, fixtures in bad shape or done sloppy in construction.

  • Single

    Location was excellent and easy walk to major areas. It was a safe, clean hotel and reasonably priced. Overall good value and somewhere I would stay again.

    My room had no natual sunlight, the window overlooked a brick wall, but seeings I was out all day it wasn't a big deal.

  • Single

    The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.

    I didn't like not having any natural light in the room, it felt very claustrophobic and the air conditioning is just too loud.

    It is recently renovated with hotel and location is perfect a 5 min walk to time square and cheap restaurant when you turn right and go up streets. Staff were very friendly and the room had a fridge, hairdryer,iron and very comfy bed and rain shower. Loved the decor

    The room is small and no light as when you open window you face a brick wall. It not really something that was of too much concern as when your in New York your out most of the day.
