Good for the price

We stayed at the hotel for one night. The staff at the front desk and bar are incredibly nice and professional. The room was a little on the small side but clean, comfortable and had everything you need in a hotel room, plus free wifi! The bed was comfortable, the bathrooms were updated, everything worked- just a little noisy. We valeted our car with the hotel (were told that self valet is actually $65 for an SUV) which is definitely not the $45 price advertised. Took about 45 minutes to get our car back. all in all, a decent room for the price and perfect for a busy NYC weekend.

Wonderful hotel.

Great location. Lots of eateries... Pizza at 2bros on the corner, 2 slices and a drink for $3.00! Delicious greasy cheezy pizza! Subway is down the block. Perfect stay

Second Time Around

This was my second stay at the Distrikt - first time March of 2015. While I will stay there again on my next trip to New York, I didn't find the overall experience as good as the first. I do pay the highest compliments to the Front Desk Staff - they are on top of things. The room, overall, was not very comfortable in that the only seat in the room is the desk chair - nothing else. I believe this was a Queen room and it felt very cramped. The hotel is in a great location, however. So, compromises enter the picture. I will return.

The front desk and all staff were always smiling, cheerful and so willing to help! A most pleasant experience. Room and bed was very comfy. Happy stay!

Our New York Visit

Pros: I liked the utilization of space and that it was close to Times Square. Also the shower was excellent, size and water pressure.
Location: Just a quick 2 block walk up to all the hustle and bustle in Times Square. Also relatively close to Madison Square Gardens and Macy's.
Nice hotel, for the smaller rooms (which we were rarely in) there was a good utilization of space. The staff was excellent and our room was cleaned so nicely while we were about town. We would definitely stay there again if we wanted to be near Times Square. We hopped right off the bus and were in the room in 10 minutes, as the hotel is basically across the street from the bus station. I really enjoyed the breakfast there, as well.

Close to bus station

We found this hotel after a last minute trip extension due to airline issues. A small hotel with small rooms but for a night or two it was okay. The facade makes you think you are staying at a new hotel but once in the room you will see some wear. The shower is the oddest piece. There is a half wall made of glass but nothing else to close off the water so the floor gets wet. Beds were comfortable and the front desk staff was fantastic. They stored our bags when we arrived early, remembered us when we came back and delivered our bags when we could finally get to our room. We didn't need much but the family next to us at the desk was in need of a lot of help and the front desk was going out of their way to make sure they got it all right. Kudos for their patience and thoroughness.

Modern, central and clean but tiny and dark

Pros: Price and location
Cons: Will be nicer once all of the construction is complete on the street. Rapidly transforming neighborhood, I personally like the older character.
Easy check in. Central location. Lots of construction nearby and crowded streets. My room was tiny and dark, but clean and cosy. Bed was good and I slept pretty well.

I had a great experience at the Distrikt Hotel. The girls at the front desk were friendly and very accomodating suggesting I could leave my luggage in the lobby while I did shopping before my departure from the city ..The staff was great including the bellboy who was helping an arriving guest with luggage and acknowledged me and wished me a pleasant stay.

very pleasant experience.

Our first visit to the Big Apple was made very pleasant by the staff of the Distrikt. The room was exactly as billed on their website. Returning after a hectic day of sightseeing was like coming home. Every staff member was pleasant and helpful. A refreshing experience.
