I uses all do not write reviews but this was a must. First off my Room did not have a microwave or fridge, phone didn’t work. Reported to front desk, in which they had someone bring up those 2 amenities, but never fix the phone. My first morning there I got up early and showered, first thing I did once in shower was brush my teeth, had my eyes closed while doing so because I was pondering all the things I’m about to do my first time in NY. Once I was done I started bathing, now I got my eyes opened, and as I’m soaking my skin I notice my wash cloth is very brown, and I’m thinking geeze I didnt know I still had makeup on, so I continued, then noticed the cloth is getting more dark brown, i looked at the water coming from the shower and I almost had a heart attack. The water that was coming out from the shower and sink Pipe looked like dirty sewer water. I jumped out the shower yelled out to my husband to come look. He couldn’t believe his eyes, my body had dark brown particles all over from the water, he had to gather all the water bottles we had to wash me down. I then thought of me brushing my teeth with that dirty sewer looking water and started to vomit. I was in a mess. When it was brought to the staff attention they couldn’t confirm if it was sewer water or not. And all they could do is reimburse me 1 night and fees. I wanted to leave immediately but I was in NY didn’t know how to get around. For the next 2 days my husband and I purchased water just to Clean ourselves.

The hotel was very nice, bed was comfortable but a door on the bathroom would have been nice.

Thank you for your feedback. While the bathroom itself has a door, we believe you are referring to the shower which has a glass partition. We will be sure to take into account your recommendation and hope you will join us again in the future!

The loft like feel to this hotel was very attractive. Staff was helpful and polite. It was on the smaller side but overall a very attractive enjoyable stay.

Staying at the Boro Hotel

Pros: Proximity to Roosevelt Island, where my son lives, comfortable bed and great shower.
Cons: A dresser to store your clothes would be a big plus.
Location: St. Patrick's Church is close by - although because of the recent extreme cold weather, I wasn't able to attend, but I did on a prior stay and it was
My only complaint is that there are no drawers to put your clothes into. Everything has to be kept in your suitcase and I don't like to put my suitcase on the bed. Consequently, there's a lot of bending involved - as a 70 yr. old, that's not easy. Other than that, our stay was quite pleasant.

Not very private.

Location: Train is 4 or so blocks away.
My first room after checking in had a dirty bathroom. Staff took care of the situation by relocating me to another room. Comfortable bed! Hardwood floors are very loud (neighboring guests with heals). Ajoining room doors have a inch gap at the bottom, letting your neighbors light and sound come through. Ajoining room doors were right next to the head of my bed, leaving their late night personal activities a very loooooooong lasting distraction, multiple times! Trendy hotel. Great Manhattan view. Not the best choice for a sound night sleep.
