Perfect location, cozy, fun

This beats very Times Square hotel because of location, a few steps from all the broadway theaters, fun small rooms, and amazing value. Prices vary, so check around. The restaurant next door is really a pleasure too.

Good value for the heart of Times Square

From check-in to departure, the hotel staff was professional, courteous, and accommodating. We especially appreciated the hotel being quiet, even though very near Times Square. We enjoy a good nights sleep after a busy day. The room was small but sufficient for our needs.

Nice

The hotel was in a good location and staffs were super nice. I really liked it. The room was small but good enough for one or two people. However, the floor was not clean enough. I know that the streets of NY are not clean so it is understandable that the hotel floors becomes the same, but it definitely needs some extra attention. I did not want to walk the carpet of my room with bare foot. Additionally, the table and cabinet top were full of stuff that the hotel would like to promote or sell. The room is small enough and I do not agree to occupy the customers space with the hotel things. I hope they put things away or organize it better so that the table top spaces are ready for customers to use.

The french restaurant in front of the hotel, don't go. You can make the same thing with the 1/10 price at home. There are several bars on the same street. Those are not bad but you can't expect high quality of food.

The Little details

If you dont mind TINY....The only this worth the price is the location (I guess). Nothing 4star about the room...it was the smallest room I've ever been in and not much bigger than the tiny elevator....if you're claustrophobic, this isnt the hotel for you. The carpets were stained, there was a plastic bag wrapped around the fire sprinkler, the mattress was horribly uncomfortable. Staff was fine and the house keeping was timely and friendly.
