Just an overnight stay

My husband and I were just staying for a night.Overall, there wasn't really anything really bad about our stay that would stop me from staying a second or third time if I needed to. Pros: -Awesome staff -Our room was actually roomy -Had our own sink -Clean -Working A/C -Kept our bags safe twice while we weren't checked in. (1. We arrived too early to check in, but they kept our bags for us so we could still go around town. 2. After we checked out we still had time before our bus to go home came so they kept ours bags again) Cons: -A/C was right next to the side of the bed so it was blowing in our faces. -Shared bathroom (2 separate rooms for the whole floor with one toilet and one shower each. However, I never had to wait to use it. ) -towels are a tad thin -bed isn't the most comfy thing ever

An awesome ramen bar (Terakawa Ramen) is 5-7 min walk from the hotel and practically acrossed the street from Gramercy Theater.

Hostel

Shared bathrooms and small rooms make this place feel like a hostel more than a hotel. If you can find a better deal, take it. Not a bad place if you absolutely can't find anywhere else to stay for the price.

Just as advertised; great location

You are getting a "bathroom down the hall" but that's not a big deal; I never saw anyone on my floor in two days and the staff kept everything spotlessly clean. The location is the best part of this hotel. It is just a couple blocks from Union Square. Besides lots of things to do in the area, that means easy access to all the subway lines. The window a.c. unit was loud, but it worked well on a really hot day and it doesn't take long to cool down a tiny hotel room.

The Loop, a great place for Japanese sushi, is just a block away on 3rd. Another great ethnic restaurant is Saigon Market on University Place, just a couple blocks south of Union Square.

Affordable and Great Location

The hotel is very clean, and cosy. The showers were a bit small, but nothing unexpected. Basic hotel amenities at a reasonable price.

in New York City for a night

sweet old hotel, lots of dark stained woodwork, very simple, basic, free (but slow) wifi, a/c but the windows also opened, something that matters to me. The room was small (I had a double bed), with a in-room sink (apparently, singles don't have that, so ask for a double), and as everyone else says, the hallway bathrooms were clean, self-contained units (although with no soap or towels so you have to bring them from your room). Lovely street, lots of places to eat on 3rd Avenue, near the 14th Street subways (and it is easy to get to the west side lines on the 14th street crosstown bus). For the price (I got a great deal online), it was more than adequate and I'd definitely stay there again if I can get a good rate.

Five Napkin Burger on 14th and 3rd has good, but pricy hamburgers, the Grammery Diner on 17th and 3rd has nice breakfasts.
