Great position

A great little basic hotel in the perfect position to explore all Manhattan has to offer. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle to get some rest and down time, but only a 5 minute stroll to subways and 20 minutes to most attractions such as Rockefeller centre and Times Square. Staff were as helpful as could be, rooms neat and tidy, and beds comfortable. If you want a 5 star hotel at 3 star price this isn't for you, but if you want a great 3 star in a good location that will give you a base a bed and enough facilities to get by, then this is the one for you!

Nice, cheap hotel

Great. Have stayed many, many times. Big rooms and clean. Fridge, Our room had a bath with over shower. 10 minute walk from Times Square. Safe area. 24 hour Deli across street. Subway 5 minutes. Free WiFi in lounge area. But.....no tea or coffee facilities in room, and I just wish the main staff could be friendly! Left my gloves in the lobby and asked if they had been handed in but was received with a shrug from a couple of the staff. Really?

Great trip to New York

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Skyline Hotel in New York. What a find! For the money, the hotel is great. Great location just a few blocks from Times Square, the Rockefeller Centre, etc. We had a junior suite which had 2 queen size beds and a sofa bed in an adjoining room. The beds were large and comfortable. The only downside was the sofa bed - not very comfortable and a bit squeaky but it didn't ruin our trip. The hotel has a nice pool which is an added bonus. There are numerous delis just a block away - our favourite was the 7 brothers deli on 9th Avenue. Shame the hotel doesn't have a breakfast option or a kettle in the room but this would not stop me from going back. Overall a fab hotel in a fantastic city.

Average at most

This hotel is at most 2 stars. The hotel check-in staff weren't very helpful, and said they know nothing about New York (huh?), and I need to speak to the Concierge. It wasn't cheap but I guess it is quite close to Times Square (within 10-12 mins walk). The room itself was quite dirty, but bathroom was OK. My room safe was broken (I couldn't be bothered to raise it as the staff was so slow to get anything done).

Excellent mini break

We looked for ages on the internet before booking, this is a little gem close to many attractions with lots of little deli's on the doorstep. The hotel was clean and comfortable with the room having a lot is space. We only used the hotel as somewhere to sleep because as soon as we were awake we were out. Fabulous location

Excellent suite for a family

Great place to stay for a family. We stayed in a Junior Suite -- two king-sized beds in one room and an exploding sofa in the other room. We were five, but it would have been comfortable for 6 too. Rooms were spacious by NYC standards - there's space for a roll-away in the sofa room if you can't convince your kids to share a big bed! Beds were very comfortable, room was quiet, pool is a decent size for a rooftop pool. Only downside is that the restaurant attached to the hotel is Mexican, which is fine but maybe not quite right for breakfast.... however their website says new restaurant coming soon so presumably they have plans afoot. Plenty of delis and other modestly-priced eateries in the nearby streets & on 10th Ave. Location is not as remote as you might think -- two long blocks from the 50th St A-C-E subway stop, or the No. 50 cross-town bus drops you at the hotel's door. And it's a much nicer neighbourhood than it was in the 1980s! Overall a comfortable yet economical place to stay -- especially for families. We will return.

Good value hotel within reasonable distance to Time Square.

We booked two rooms for a five night stay Christmas 2012. The rooms were a good size and were clean and comfortable if a little dated. The bathroom was clean but required a refurbishment but not a huge problem as we were out most of the time. Walking to Times Square took between 12 -15 minutes but it was reasonably placed to get most places and there were a few good restaurants and diners nearby. Staff were friendly and helpful. The main attraction is its relative closeness to Central Park/ Times Square and the good price. A good venue for those on a budget.

Would go back....

The hotel is lovely staff were nice, we booked the hotel because it advertised free wifi. We read reviews that they were offering wifi free also so we booked it, very disappointing to arrive and be told no we are charging now a day per device, so there was 5 of us in two rooms we explained wifi was free when we booked and they wanted proof of where we saw it. Would stay again it's a good walk up to the shops etc and going back with bags you ll need to taxi it!!!!

Good budget hotel within reasonable walking distance to Times Square.

This was a Christmas trip for my retirement in December 2012. The room ( 2 doubles) was a good size and clean although rather dated. I hardly spent any time in it so it was not a problem. We were not near the pool annex which was a shame. Staff were friendly and helpful.
