Charm of the 60. Years in top -location archived

The Beekmans breathes the defunct charm of the 60. Years. The rooms are clean, require but a fundamental renovation. The restaurant 'top of the tower' offers however a nice view, can but apart from that not at all convincing. Night not with breakfast book! ( tip: right opposite offers a cafe good and reasonably priced breakfast at.) What the Beekmans nevertheless makes interesting, is the top -location. It is on the corner very quiet for new York standards, in front of the hotel are bus stops in every direction, the subway there are about 10 minutes' walk. Definitely Buy ... by metrocard and bus lines study - it is worthwhile. Who has no intention of, the day to spend in the hotel, but the city ( Manhattan) explore wants, is in Beekmans great cared for. read hotel review

We were in the summer 2011 in the hotel beekman tower and were very impressed. Our booked room was through renovations not get, so we were upgraded to a suite. With a living room with dining table and a couch and tv, bedroom and kitchenette. The standards are other as in Germany, you should not be confused. Decorated the room was american. The location in addition to the united nations was the highlight, therefore we have on our last day nor barack obama seen. Also otherwise one is fast at a metro or bus stop, the hop on hop of ... sightseeing bus stops also nearby. Also on foot the timesquare right easy to reach. The hotel staff were all very friendly and courteous. For our first New York travel was this hotel just perfect. And we would come again. read hotel review

There is a clearly dated, in need of renovation in a 27-story high-rise Hotel. The room-Suite declared-turned out to be a shabby, simple furniture equipped mini apartment with a kitchenette: the view (2. Floor) was about 1 meters away, with sandwiches thick clinker wall, as far as the dirty bit slices. The only highlight of the hotel is the restaurant on the top floor with a little view, but rather moderate breakfast. read hotel review

    The room was very big, but the bathroom was small (little shelf space). The furniture in the rooms were a bit old, but clean and functional. We especially want to mention the fully equipped kitchenette with microwave, toaster, oven, Backröhre tea/coffee making facilities. An iron with ironing board and a hair dryer were also available. The safe deposit box was large enough for a laptop.

    We only Ate breakfast there once in the restaurant, as the value was right in any way. The buffet restricted to a few bagels and 2 sorts of jam. There was no sausage cheese. Also it took a long time to the additionally ordered breakfast from the map (eggs and pancakes) served. Bar and restaurant were unfortunately very often closed for banquets.

    In the immediate vicinity there is a bus stop for 2 different lines. The nearest underground station is about 10 minutes. This also means that the hotel is a good base for a stay in Manhattan. A small supermarket, which is open 24 hours, is located right across the street, a bigger a few minutes walk. ATM machine are available in the immediate vicinity.

    path to the nearest metro station approximately 10 to 15 minutes at close to breakfast and there was also shopping. If you are a jogger, I would recommend you to stay somewhere else, as the easy way to Central Park is about 2 km are. We would be a slightly more central location have been better.

Good middle class hotel in Manhattan, which is an ideal starting point for crash the city. Up to the nearest metro stations are about 8 minutes but buses stop just around the corner. walk will get you into about 10 -12 minutes for example. The Rockefeller Center. We had a room for 3 people, which from a good sized living room with daybed, desk, dining table with 4 chairs and a sideboard, a closet and a TV cabinet stock and a small kitchen with a stove, refrigerator, coffee maker (with, the was re-filled every day), microwave and crockery. The bedroom ... was a little small, with a double bed (about 40 meters wide), armoire and a console. From the bedroom went into the bathroom that added a closet with the safe as well as a bathtub with integrated shower, toilet and sink. The rooms were always clean, towels were regularly replenished. The furnishings are upscale, although sometimes seem a bit older (upholstery daybed just looked a little tired). Service of the staff are very good. A hotel porter can even spoke some German, so that it always in German greeted us when we left the hotel or back returned. apart from that we had in English. We ourselves prepared meals taken or traveling. On the top floor there is a restaurant with a nice view. The one night there when we drove up to a cocktail, but there was no space, so we had to leave, so I can't say about the quality there. First-time visitors New York is so we were), I could the New York pass (for 3 or 7 days available) recommend. This gives you access to most of the attractions in New York City, some on the "fast track" even faster get into and you must not so much cash with "rumtragen". If you want to discover much worth the New York pass definitely! read hotel review

The next stop for express trains is located in the 53 . Street/Lexington Avenue and is about 8 minutes away.

Unfortunately our sheets were not changed once during your stay, you could handled most of it though. Tip: Look at Lincoln Center is in the basement a bio supermarket. For little money great food. Furthermore, Grimaldis pizza in Brooklyn highly recommended. Small but fine read hotel review

    Surprisingly large suite. A bit dated furnished. A bit patina basic to say. But it has charm. Large TV (only US channels), air-conditioning (it can also be turned off), kitchen with microwave and stove. Self-sufficiency is possible without a problem. Because of its central location loud at night. ear plugs (ear plugs) are a must. Then one slept wonderful. On request one received a 110 V adapter. Hair dryer and bathrobes are available.

    On the 26th floor can dine there in the evening or a cocktail. We only drank a cocktail. Price about $15 . Good taste. Stylish. Jacket or such are not (more) obligation. Breakfast in the morning. We all loved it. Good quality, tidy portions and the great view. Although not quite cheap. About $15 per person. Definitely use them!

    About 20 mins to the metro. Right across the street is a good grocery store. Two blocks away is a very well stocked supermarket. A pharmacy and several banks are also close by. In the bank America I could with my Bankcard without trouble to withdraw money. The hotel offers airport transportation to the airport for $57. Approximate driving time is 45 minutes. The German Embassy and the UN are within easy walking distance.
