    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Affordable place near the city and trains.

    Loved the locations and people in the neighborhood. It was also great being by a main station to get to downtown. Had some great cheap shopping in the area as well. Would stay again if on a budget.


    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    This place has a great location at a reasonable price. Like anything you pay for what you get it maybe basic but it’s comfortable. The only thing that concerned me was that the TV didn’t work and the bed and pillows are covered in plastic. If you are booking through Expedia call the Hotel directly (Expedia are not helpful) before you arrive to confirm your booking as they didn’t have my booking when I arrived even though I booked 4 months in advance and showed them my printed receipt. Pervious reviews here have had similar problems. Otherwise, there are no major issues staying here.


    Spanish Harlem

    I turned up and they had no record of my booking this is despite me phoning to confirm booking 2 weeks prior to my arrival as requested on the Expedia web site. So I'm glad I brought the print out with me. They had no rooms free which is not what I wanted to hear after flying 3000 miles from London. They said I could stay in one of the apartments they had for 2 days until my box room became available which was a bonus.....It got better because that's the last I heard from them and I stayed in the apartment for the full 9 days at no extra cost. Now it must be said you have the apartment and you must treat it like your own for your stay because nobody comes and cleans or takes rubbish away or changes sheets etc....this I didn't mind because of the circumstances in which I ended up there.

    Pros: It was very cheap for Manhattan, 103rd St subway station just around the corner for easy access to downtown.

    Cons: The fact that they had no record of my booking when I arrived would be a concern.

    Location: Not the best location, but I had no trouble there even when I rolled in at 4am after a lots of booze. There are loads of really good cafes.

    4/5 Good

    Simple and to the point at the right price

    Staff is not 24/7 room shade need to be fix, but you get what you pay for ok. Clean sheets, shower & bathroom, frig in room, access to microwave your food make tea or coffee tv in room channels could be better Not end of world It could be worse I extended my stay because the price is right especially in nyc Owners & staff nice no fuss

    Pros: Price, frig in room, microwave, coffee, tea makers, room was very warm

    Cons: Stronger wifi signal better tv channels atleast clear 2,4,5,7,9,11

    Location: If you know harlem near everything duane reade, bally total fitness, fast food, restaurants, markets its nyc
