Very good 8.0
Good value for the price. Access to a very nice pool for morning laps is a luxury.
FRANCOIS, ca2 night business trip
Fair 4.0
Depends on your priorities
Did not get good sleep as my room was besides too many bathroom. And god knows if it was cleaning crew or who but every half an hour I was waking up with loud door banging sound, possibly bathroom doors. I woke up multiple times since 1 AM till 6 AM and could not get good sleep. If you have any important work next day for which you would need good sleep, then I do not recommend you to stay here. It wasn’t worth it for me, plus along with the room charge, they take additional $10 as a member fee. You already compromise by using shared bathroom and that is why you pay $120 and if they still feel it is a favor they are doing to us by low charge than I would say hotels which would take 170 would have private bathroom too and probably won’t be so noisy.

No frills accommodation being
Great location being on the edge of Central Park, offeeing value for money safe accommodation. Facilities are tired but are clean and serviceable, rooms are small but sufficient as a safe base. This is accommodation catering for travellers who want a safe inexpensive place to stay, the guests are transient so some noise is inevitable. Great gym ans sauna.

Exceptional 10.0
Great hotel, great staff and great location.
Everything was AMAZING!! Great location, really nice staff, room stayed clean for my whole stay, semi private bathrooms were clean and it’s greta that you have to use your electric key to open them. If you’re young and traveling solo & with partner/friends, this is the BEST option.

I'd stay here again Wow, location!
Location, location, location! And price. I would totally stay here again. After all of the reviews I expected things to be lot worse than they were. Imagine it's a little like a college dorm room, bathrooms and showers. The rooms weren't huge but they weren't tiny (esp. for NYC). You are literally a HALF block from Central Park, a hop skip and a jump from Columbus Circle, subways, Broadway, Lincoln Center. If you want a room to hang out in, luxury, etc. then this is not for you. If you want a decent place at a good price to sleep and get ready for your day b/c you'll be out exploring, then this is perfect! I didn't get to explore the pool or workout areas but if I had been there longer I would have. Employees were fine as well. No complaints.
