This is sold as a 4 star hotel, but is not. Hall is nice but very small; rooms are terrible, small, not very clean, bathroom very small, very noisy from the conditioning of other rooms. It is in a great position, but generally is very poor. read hotel review

OK to sleep but only to sleep

As it's often the case in the big cities this hotel is located in the earth of the city (2 minutes walk to Time Square) but the rooms are very small and the equipment rather old the bathtub has probably seen many many travelers and the carpets were very old-fashioned. While it was all old and small, I have to admit it was still very clean. I had quiet neighbors but still have to say that I could easily hear the sound from the hall and other rooms so better have no children in the adjacent rooms. I only recommend ... it for the location. The lobby and the bar in the lobby are small and not a great place to meet people. The staff wasn't rude but not very friendly as well. read hotel review

Great location for a person, couple or small family visiting NY for site-seeing. 2 minutes walk to Time Square and all the action. In the heart of the Theatre District.Convenient for taking the hop-on-hop-off buses. the good thing about this place is that it is not bang in Time Square so you don't have all the bright lights & noise. Lots of eating places around. read hotel review

Thoroughly recommendable

  • August 2014
Well equipped room with fridge, air conditioning, TV, telephone, radio-alarm, coffee machine with accessories, ironing board, iron, room safe. Room and bed rather small, but completely adequate. Offered hotel breakfast for about 13 dollars is rather expensive (we didn't try it). The background music in the lobby was annoying. The BW President is well suited to people who are looking for a 'normal' hotel without any particular comforts. We would recommend it! read hotel review

An excellent location , very close to times square . Close to many subway lines to go all ny by foot or by other type of transport. The room was nice. Had services such as coffee maker, refrigerator, iron, hairdryer, etc. that made the stay much easier . We really had no inconveniences. read hotel review

Hotel near Theatre district and Time square

The perfect thing about this hotel is it's location. You are just around the corner from Times square and many theatres nearby. A lots of bars, karaoke, restaurants are around. The hotel is comfortable, but it feels that it was renovated long time ago. The rooms are not big but it is not expected for the mere price in the center of New York on peak season. Would recommend this hotel for short stay not demanding for extra luxury. read hotel review

A very centrally located hotel, which is fantastically well suited to a city break in New York. Very friendly staff, nicely furnished room and pleasantly quiet, in spite of the proximity to Times Square. read hotel review

Great location, right on the Time Square

  • June 2013
With the great location on the Time Square one is directly in the center and there was always something. With the many metro one comes fast to the desired objective, but much is on foot very easy to reach. The room size was small, but for such a city needs one also hardly a room, since we anyway were never in the room and the size was completely enough. read hotel review
