It's not what the pictures on their website show.

Did not feel comfortable staying here at all. Nice staff, but that's about it.

It's ok.......

Pros: Location
Cons: Everything
Location: Great
Small room with small bath that needs renovations- no elevator- lots of stairs - but clean. Bed barley fit in the room but the bed slept comfortably. Basically a place to sleep and shower- nothing more. I've stayed in a lot cheaper places that were a lot nicer.

Prices by phone are high. They don't always honor the online reservations.

Poor value for the money

Pros: The location was convenient but the price (nearly $500 for one night) was not consistent with the quality.
Cons: Dark hallways, staircases, no elevator. Staff unfriendly. Tiny bathroom with rusted fixtures, two thin towels. TV small, with grainy picture.
Location: Upper west side, convenient to lots of restaurants.

Don't Believe The Hype

Very deceptive is the best way to describe this hotel. No elevator, mad steps, narrownarrow halls and small rooms. No, absolutely no amenities whatsoever. No microwave in the room and NO food ANYWHERE in the hotel means you will buy EVERYTHING and with Fridge or microwave, never mind getting a doggie bag. This was a mistake and hopefully it's one someone else can avoid.

Convenient, clean, and friendly

Very nice and basic stay. Subway entrance and Starbucks right on the same corner. Clean. I'd stay again.

Mediocre hotel near Starbucks/Subway

Pros: Next to Starbucks, and across the street from subway, plus what I could afford over the holiday, people were very nice.
Cons: Include a wash cloth, a coffee pot, microwave, mini-fridge, or a clock that works (or could have the time set). Would like to have a channel guide.
Location: Starbucks next door, and easy access to the subway, so didn't spend much time in the area.
Old hotel with only stairs, no elevator, but people to bring your luggage upstairs. Had a TV, clock, desk, mini-closet, comfy bed, hair dryer, 2 towels & shampoo. Old plumbing with modern fixtures, so to get hot water, turn handle to the right in the shower. Noisy window A/C and heater. Adequate if not spending much time in the room. No fridge, no coffee, no wash cloth. Free wi-fi, nice people at the desk, next door to Starbucks, across the street from the subway. Would prefer to stay elsewhere on my next visit, but was the cheapest I could get for the Christmas holiday.

Conveniently located to Broadway. Clean. Excellent, friendly, responsive staff. Building an odd experience: about 20 steps up from street without elevator, although inside there is an elevator to upper floors. No complimentary breakfast. Quite happy with stay.
