Pros: Staff was very helpful and friendly and in a great location great place to stay
deceptive online profileCons: I ended up with a tiny room and twin size bed. not what I had planned when I booked. not to mention the bathroom and shower were also tiny!
No elevator, small room, low price = great deal foPros: price & simple, clean room.Cons: Not a problem for me, but be aware no ironing board, desk area. Very small bathroom with little surface area to set stuff (would not be appropriate for my partner who has many things to set out on counters on the bathroom when getting ready for work).
AC was a micro wall unit with remote control, there was a switch (like a light switch) on the wall near it that had to be turned on for it to work (but then it worked fine).
Good for Quick StayPros: The hotel was cheap for it's location, and the staff was friendly. Additionally, the room and hotel itself were both clean.Cons: The room was overwhelmingly hot, which made it difficult to sleep well throughout the night, and I couldn't figure out a way to control the temperature myself, or even open the window.
NYC Trip Pros: I like that it was clean, that is about it. Cons: There was too much noise outside during the night. I could not really sleep, from the cars honking to inebriated people outside making too much noise. I guess thats the price you pay in New York City. The rooms were really small for the price I paid. There was no hot water and therefore could not take a shower. The bathroom was also awkward in where the sink was placed to the side. Would not recommend someone staying here. It is too expensive without the amenities to justify the price.
Efficiency and ValuePros: The hotel is right next to Penn Station affordable when you're in the city for a fair amount of time. The staff was really friendly. Cons: The room (and bathroom) is tiny! For two adults it can get cumbersome. It would have been nice for the toilet to have a lid since there really are no surfaces to put your things on.
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff Cons: No elevator
Pros: The location is the only thing this hotel has going for it. Cons: There were flies everywhere, the room was extremely small (only space for a bed), no counters, no shelves, the AC unit was OVER the bed, the staff was dishonest and rude, they use the stairs for storage and trash (FIRE hazard!), the shower was incredibly small. Worst place I've ever stayed and not worth the money or hassle.
