The hotel was on a discount deal due to some renovations going on, I was hesitant to book in the beginning, then took the risk and booked. Actually it was a very nice hotel, good ambience, moderate size rooms, very friendly employees, and the location is just amazing!! The only down side is the facilities INSIDE the hotel, I mean come on a hotel in Manhattan should at least contain a restaurant and a nice bar, well, not this one :) read hotel review

The flatotel was in december 2012 one of the cheapest 4-star hotels in Manhattan. The rooms are for nantucket quite large, but quite worn. Breakfast had in our tariff expensive additionally booked are. The location is great, only 5-7 minutes on foot to Times Square and different metro-lines directly connected. There is a decent gym almost at the top (46. floor). The entrance area is rather small and the staff were partly friendly, partly neutral. The windows were in our room not completely sealed, so it relatively loud remained. Also there was only a very old tv. For us was ... the location in connection with the price the main argument and we would in this respect also always book it again. read hotel review

The hotel is at the 52. road between 6. and 7. av and therefore very centrally located right in downtown Manhattan. Many attractions, for example the Rockefeller Center, Central Park, bloomingdales, 5. avenue and Times Square are within walking distance. Also the next metro station is only a short walk away. Nearby the hotel, there is plenty of Diners and restaurants. The hotel is already a bit older and would certainly have the a or other 'überholung' necessary. The rooms are for New York standards quite large and, although somewhat dated, it was comfortable and acceptable. You had to finally ... not in the hotel sit, but the city to explore. And it is just perfect. We have it found very pleasant, that the hotel so centrally located and you often during the day the possibility had, short to the hotel to go, to for instance bags, and then again in this vibrant city to go back. This hotel we could really warmly recommend and would definitely again for the next New York stay! read hotel review

For a trip to new york city the hotel is optimally, it is the metro not so far away and Broadway and Times Square in the surroundings, everything else you can take the metro good! The only thing we perhaps fault would was, that there is no safe in the room and all valuables and papers to carry. read hotel review

I could not remember, when i the last time a crt had. Had a damage caused by water in the bath in the bathtub in the morning at 6 and was then rausgeklingelt. Reaction was, that big fan designed (so it was probably not the first time), but no room change was offered. Since i was only there for two nights there was, it ... was then matter and i just unplugging it, if i in the room was. But for kurztrips a decent, favorable alternative read hotel review

    I had my room inclusive breakfast booked. Most of the hotels in new York no inclusive offer breakfast at, and the flat Otel should rather not do! The breakfast room is very small and accordingly usually very busy. there was moderate coffee in a paper cup and plastic cutlery. The offer was all in all very poor and offering a clear view. There were bagels, but you must stop also like... In addition a small selection of the highest quality, that only noteworthy in this offer: fresh fruit salad. because of my experiences in the breakfast I stayed on a dinner in the hotel rather not.

    the staff are friendly and make an effort. At the cleaning of the rooms there are nothing to fault. A little scary I thought, my room was really only around 16 hours to was. When I wanted to check in 3:00 P. M., I had an hour, to wait the room was ready. This was so in the description of the hotel, but in a big house one should think, that there was always room at this time is available.

In the middle of Manhattan has relatively short walk to Central Park and time square. Unfortunately the room was already been renovated not more, small repairs were necessary (closet doors, shutters, etc.) in principle, however, the room clean. The biggest complaint was the staff however: incompetent and rude (not all, but some). Above all, the Spanish speaking staff had great difficulty with the english language. We can recommend the hotel not, be it the room, the staff or the price. Hotels in similar price are in NYC it enough. read hotel review

The hotel has 45 floors and near the 52 Street between Central Park and Times Square (both within walking around 5 mins). On the top floor is a free gym with sensational view. Wireless Internet access is complimentary in the lobby, are located in the basement available two free use computers. For New York standards spacious rooms (ours a corner room, estimated 25-30 square meters). Everything was very clean, great view from the upper floors on the streets of Manhattan. Climate in order in the room, outside noise in our floor (21 ) to hear. Staff seem "unobtrusive", the concierge ... gave us with a great deal of effort, time and great tips (restaurants)! We didn't try breakfast, restaurant area looks on us uninviting and price seemed to be rather high, since in the 52 Street several excellent breakfast cafes. The guest structure was international, tourists. Age structure was rather from 40 and older, so very quiet, pleasant guests, many Europeans. read hotel review

    For New York, as mentioned above, extremely large! The price performance ratio was absolutely! That you will have to pass by corner room two full windows (the also can hold), about 30 to 35 m², bathroom with bathtub absolutely fine, bathroom with a window for NY already surprisingly good.

    The staff were unobtrusive but not rude. You always got answers to questions, on issues was staff tried very hard. A word of advice, take the support of the concierge, he has great tips endeavor to book restaurants (which would otherwise were hard to reach) and knows obviously very good. Room always clean, beds made up each day, fresh towels even without requesting it, shower gel, shampoo and body lotion available, even hair dryer.

    The hotel has 45 floors and near the 52 . Street between Central Park and Times Square (both within walking around 5 mins). On the top floor is a free gym with sensational view. Wireless Internet access is complimentary in the lobby, are located in the basement available two free use computers. For New York standards spacious rooms (ours a corner room, estimated 25-30 square meters). Everything was very clean, great view from the upper floors on the streets of Manhattan. Climate in order in the room, outside noise in our floor (21 ) to hear. Staff seem "unobtrusive", the concierge gave us with a great deal of effort, time and great tips (restaurants)! We didn't try breakfast, restaurant area looks on us uninviting and price seemed to be rather high, since in the 52 . Street several excellent breakfast cafes. The guest structure was international, tourists. Age structure was rather from 40 and older, so very quiet, pleasant guests, many Europeans.
