Disappointing on many levels.

Pros: Location.
Cons: Bigger rooms, a business center. Neither of which are likely to happen.
Location: Near Times Square, so lots to do and lots of places to eat.
Cramped room. Broken key machine, which meant staff had to escort guests to their rooms whenever they returned to the hotel. Odd lingering scent from cleaner. Missing door chain. Thin windows. Would not stay here again.

Location, Location, Location!

Pros: Location and cost for where you are.
Cons: Window curtains interfered with AC and let light in unless you used masking tape
Location: Everything is outside and within walking distance. Times Square, Broadway, SNL Exhibition, Nightly Show filming, Central Park
Great spot for the money to be close to Broadway shows, Times Square, Central Park, etc but be aware that the rooms are very small and low frills. They are fine to crash in but not enough to stretch out too far. A little noisy from the street below but not bad considering how many people live around you. Employees were very helpful and nice when needed.

look elsewhere

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: very small rooms and they were freezing
The location may be great but the rooms are small and ours was absolutely freezing! As a matter of fact, we were supposed to stay there again on our return from our cruise and instead decided to just continue on home! Keep looking and you'll find better

good stay

great strategic position, small but very well organized, very clean. only black spot is the staff: not very polite, seem they don't like being disturbed, i'd rather ask information in the street than ask them

okay experience

Hotel was very small and for the most part clean. The only negatives about the hotel was the size of the room, the shower curtain was dirty and the hinge on the bathroom door kept on falling off. The people at the font deck were nice, but the coffee was very nasty. The bagels they serve in the morning had little bugs in them.

Will not stayed here again!! Not recommended

We came to NYC for a week, choose this hotel for the location despite its price (not cheap) and the elevator was broken during our whole stay. How is it possible they did not repair it during a whole week. Hotel's staff are not nice and we tried to speak to the manager twice during the week but was never at the hotel and, of course, never contact us despite the number of messages we left for her at the front desk WC broke almost every day. For sure we will not stay here again. We will not recommend it.

rooms were big, hotel was surprisingly better than most

i was surprised that this hotel looked simple on the outside but once you step into the lobby, you will notice how clean it is, the hallways had new carpet, very clean, and my room was very spacious compared to most hotels in Times Square. I am very satisfied with this hotel and would recommend it to everyone I know. Location is perfect, just beside the broadway theaters! Drugstore and grocery stores around the corner. Lots of cheap and good places to eat around this hotel

Small rooms--so what else is new?

I was warned in advance that the rooms were small, and mine was. However, it was clean, the internet worked fine, and the front desk clerk was courteous. The location can't be beat. Minor drawbacks for me were the less than perfect TV reception and slow, single elevator--I used the stairs a lot. I'd say overall this is a good value.
