Very nice basic hotel. I went for the shared bathroom and I always managed to find one close to use. The hotel is quite basic but has all the essentials and is great for single and young travellers including free Wi-fi. A clean comfortable bed, tv and sink in the room. No kettle or tea and coffee making facility so I brought my own travel kettle. There is a cafe facility downstairs and secure bag storage for the last day. As with all New York hotels you pay the facility fee but the price is very reasonable compared to some places. I found the staff very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The hotel is close to a subway station but also within reasonable walking distance of The Rockefeller Centre, Times Square and Central Park. I would certainly stay there again when in Manhattan.

Gut: gute Lage, sehr Zentral, Austattung ausreichend für einen Kurztrip Schlecht: die Zimmer sind sehr laut, man hört alles (Gang, Nachbarn, Straße), besonders durch die verschlossene Durchgangstür zum Nachbarzimmer, man hatte das Gefühl es sei nur ein Raum.

Sijainti loistava. Lähellä paljon ruokapaikkoja ja metro parin korttelin päässä. Henkilökunta ystävällistä. Huone todella pieni. 2 hengen sänky aika kapea. Lakanoissa reikiä.
