We were really very satisfied! You had the feeling that you were in the military because of the bunk bed, but the cleanliness and the beautiful bath compensate for it (towels were changed every day). The room was large enough to accommodate three large suitcases spread out on the floor and each had a private safe. We were also very positively surprised by breakfast, there was everything your heart could desire (toast, bagel, butter, jam, cheese, cereal, fruit, coffee, tea). The location was just amazing for the price - a few steps & you were already directly at Times Square ... and the subway. The staff was really always very friendly and helpful! We can recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to experience something in New York, be in the middle of the action, and not pay too high a price! read hotel review

If one enters the hostel can tell you, that it used to be a hotel was. The location is for New York i dont think so to exceed. The Times Square is less than 50 meters away. There you find everything you need: of food, over shopping to to excursions. The front desk is open 24 hours and the staff is friendly, but seemed often bored. I had a 3 person room with a private bathroom and including breakfast. The room is though nothing special large, but since we wanted to visit the city adequate. Each guest has its own ... free safe with a combination lock. The rooms are cleaned daily, however, i found this very superficially. Bed sheets and a towel upon arrival together. In the entire house is wifi free of charge distance. There is also in the basement 2 free computer with internet access. I would definitely again the hostel book, if i in nyc am. read hotel review

The hotel has a great location, and is apart from that in principle recommendable. You should but no more as the minimum expected. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff seemed hit to be. The in the price included breakfast consisted of tea or coffee and bagel with jams or cream cheese. Somewhat monotonous if you several days there spends. read hotel review

The hotel 41 at times square is located, as the name already says exactly at Times square in new York City. The rooms were quite small, but for a new York trip total okay. One is in new York anyway only for sleeping in the hotel. The 41 was one of the cheaper hotels I expiry date. Can only recommend it but as I said. The location is great.

The hotel is located on a side street from Times Square, right across the street from the New York Times So it was very centrally located, as the hustle and bustle of the room didn't notice. We booked a small room and it was sufficient for the city break for a longer stay I would however a larger room. Included in the price (which is very untypical of New York) was a small breakfast (bagels, croissants, muffins, jams, cream cheese, coffee and orange juice). Anyway, this was enough to start the day not to start with an empty stomach. The ... hotel is located right across from subway! Very emphasized was the friendliness of the staff, everyone was super nice and helpful, so I have ever experienced. I would book the hotel again any time!!! read hotel review

The rooms are very small, especially the as a double bed brands bed is by American standards at best a twin bed. We had a room in the courtyard, so opening the windows impossible (air-conditioners the around). The fan in our bathroom was broken and could not be fixed during our stay. read hotel review

    Absolutely small and spartan, but that is nothing new decorated for a big city hotel, the really bad thing about the hotel was the so-called double bed which is really a bit larger single bed (by European standards!!! ) is. a safe in the room, bathroom-fan was broken and not addressed

    Location, location, location, literally right on the Times Square metro stations in the surrounding area, Hopon-Hopoff stations. The Long Island Railroad Station is only 7 blocks away (Penn Station), which leads directly onto JFK Airport. Shopping possibilities in the immediate vicinity are rather slight at all and if then the area to exorbitant prices.

There are standard (9.5m² ), superior (12.5m² )and penthouse rooms (> 25 m²) all with en-suite facilities. Everything was very clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast is included.

For a city trip a great hotel in the best location. We booked a standard room. Personally I the size of the room, probably rather small in the first moment blown away by, but my personal "problem" is. Although we had a window in the room - but a ausgestreckter arm that was enough to affect the wall of the next building; (o). The bathroom is also very small accordingly. But if you didn't have a problem here is really well cared for. Absolute pluspoint is the proximity to the top the Citybusse. The breakfast is typically American (coffee, etc. ..., croissants, jam).

I would definitely recommend this one, small but nice hotel. Closer and you can find better than tourist probably not stay in Times Square. The subway station is diagonally across the street. The transfer from the airport is also ideal , New York-AS from the Port Authority. I met a friend the last 7 years who lives in New York, he said it would be a top hotel, especially the location, cleanliness and value for money. I would go back to this hotel anytime. read hotel review
