Great location, right on the Time Square

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. Bewertung lesen

We booked this hotel for our city trip in may this year despite the quite bad reviews, as me in all first and foremost the location convinced. The lobby is clean, there are next to the reception a small bar. Several elevators are available and a desk at which one transfers and maps etc. Can book. The wifi is free of charge and you will receive a check-in code and a password. Has everything worked without problems. Bewertung lesen

    The check-in was very friendly and one felt welcome. Room service was very good. The hand towels were fresh and clean and the bed, which my girlfriend on such trips gladly checked for cleanliness is, it was also. If wished it daily new towels and new bed linen provided. On the dealing with complaints i can't say, because i no report had.

    We had a room on the 15. floor, which easily with one of the elevators was. Facilities: Size about 15 square meters, consisting of rooms with bathroom and shower and storage/closet. The bed was about 1.40 times 2.00 meters large, so not really a lot of space available. There was a great air conditioning system in the american style, a desk, with a flat screen tv hung and a chest of drawers. In the storage room had a kleiderstande with hangers, an iron and ironing board and a safe, no extra fee to use. The bathroom and toilet were absolutely clean. Of course, it was not a new bathroom, but the cleanliness of the room was ok. One of the things the often criticized the room concern i can write as follows: Air conditioning is right next to the bed under the window and service as only fresh air, since the windows open. At like the air conditioning but also be turned off if these too loud is. We had no problems, except that she quite dusty was. What to be criticized is are the windows. Two pieces of it were available, but they were with a simple thin glass and it felt, as if the pieces of plastic or perspex are, so thin came before. Accordingly was also the noise. At night there were sirens of police and emergency ambulances to hear. Even if this hotel Best Western chain, this is no german Best Western standard, but for a city trip adequate.

    This hotel lies as in every other review to read in a great location about 300 to 400 metres from the Time Square away so virtually. Many attractions are reachable on foot, but also the subway stations of the individual lines are close. Restaurants, shops and above all theaters are right in front of the door. Perfect! Midtown!

For a city break to New York we found the hotel just. Price/performance ratio was for new york standards in order. The furnishing of the rooms was simple, but clean. As city breaks most time anyway on the way is, was for us the hotel completely okay. Bewertung lesen

The hotel makes on the first glance a good impression, if you however somewhat a closer look there are already some to complain about. The whole hotel is very badly soundproofed and very loud-without ohropax would sleep not to be thought. Bewertung lesen

    To the hotel has a japanese and a vietnamese restaurant, in both you get 10% discount if you are a hotel guest, but you have to point out, asked you will not. Only the vietnamese try and good idea for. Reasonable price level. In the hotel lobby, you could also a breakfast take, buffet 15 $, american breakfast 12 $-did not try it.

    The location is absolutely great! Just a few strides from the Time Square away. Shops, restaurants and so on. Everything on foot to reach in a short time.

    The rooms are itself quite furnished nicely, but also if the whole on the first glance still relatively new, looks, on the 2. view one sees already some of drawbacks. Carpets have m. m. Actually nothing in hotel rooms to find, and if, then they should be but also of stains to be cleaned - in this hotel it appears to be on a bit saved. The room door lock didn thermotolerance, but the keeper at the framework was just poorly repaired, the chain for additional secure door was no longer available. A somewhat unpleasant smell was also in the room, could this but do not match. The wardrobe does not really deserve the name, but it was even an ironing board and iron there, represents only the question where you hangers in the small room. Our room had a balcony with a small table and 1 chair, both for security reasons on the floor screwed, but the smallest problem was. In the corners the balcony you found for example empty cans, the flower boxes were almost half full with cigarette butts. Apparently the cleaning staff already for a couple of weeks no longer the balcony door open for the right to see. Toilet and bath are also very small, the floor is not regularly mopped, otherwise but okay. A coffee maker is available, but if a half-pot of coffee to stand leaves you will find this 2 days later still as before.

    Staff at the reception was alright - the excessive friendliness of the staff in some shops you will find it here. The cleaning of the rooms leaves much to be desired - if not the beds made and the towels hanged/changed if one would believe there is no cleaning staff. Hair on the floor in the bathroom. Under the bed was still an original packaged damenstrumpfhose. Door of my brother was the room service not closed. Was completely open, luckily nothing was missing. Staff at the reception the whole not really, reacted rather stubborn on the instruction that something like not allowed to be.

Small room, small bed, mattress was okay, bathroom was a disgrace, super small, nothing special clean, shower water only lukewarm. Air conditioning system dirty and not adjustable. In our case despite cold temperatures outside in the room like a sauna. No reaction to our complaint. The credit card for the door functioned only with every 5a 10 time. Also here only schulterschütteln on demand at the front desk. The state of the room was okay, would have but also could be better. The hallways to the rooms were at any time of the day needs improvement. Only the location of ... the hotel was terrific. Just round the corner to Times Square, the next metro station only a couple blocks away. The value for money is even for New York not alright. Bewertung lesen
