Basic hotel in a good location
Very convenient for Union Square, etc but quite a basic hotel. No extras as all, let alone proper lighting in the bedroom. Had to open the window to get some air into the room. Can't fault the location.

Fair 4.0
It was ok
Locations is good. A lot of places you can walk to from the hotel. When I first arrived the radiator was on full blast steaming into the curtain. I thought that was odd and the curtains could be shortened. The room felt like a sauna so I left it off the rest of the stay. As a young woman traveling alone in the city I didn’t like the doors didn’t have an extra lock on them like most hotel rooms. In fact it took me a couple tries to figure out how to lock the door properly. I’m really glad I paid for private bathroom. I believe that could be easily missed upon booking so if you aren’t open to that, make sure to book a room with a private bathroom. The fan & light system kind of had a mind of its own. On the welcome sheet it said that there was a remote to use to control the fan / light which I never found a separate remote just the wall panel. I’m not sure if the light was picking up another room remote signal but sometimes the main light would turn on and off on it’s own. Besides the fan, I didn’t notice any type of AC system so I’m not sure if I could stay here in the summer. The room was extremely warm every time I came back to the room but cooled down when I opened the window. The elevators works... but sounds like it’s falling apart, so if you get Claustrophobic or agoraphobic I would recommend taking the stairs. Although for the price this stay was fine, I do think there could be several improvements.

Good 6.0
When I 1st checked in I was shocked that there was no bathroom in my room. I was told that I had to pay extra for a private bathroom. This was very disappointing as I did not see anything during booking regarding public bathrooms and shower.

Good location and reasonable price.

Very good 8.0
Good value for money
Ideally located by Union Square and Powell Station. Nothing fancy, but the space was tidy and room equipped with full amenities (fridge, kettle, good TV for rainy evenings).
