The room/suite was not very clean, walls needed fresh paint, carpet had rips, beds were very uncomfortable, the mattress was extremely hard. The shower head dripped very cold water while you were trying to take a hot shower, you couldn't close it completely so it dripped all day. You couldn't control the room heater, your option was extremely hot with...

Clean decent budget hotel. Rooms are very basic and small, but great value for money. Not far from subway, so easy to get down town. A coat of paint and new flooring will do wonders. Reception friendly and helpful. Will stay here again.

Scruffy public areas. Room small but clean and comfortable. Good value for NYC. Great location - quiet and felt safe. Close to 79th subway station, central park and Zabar's. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. Would stay there again.

I would not rely on the elevators so if you have someone that needs one this is not the place for you. They were out of service for much of our time spent there so we needed to walk up 6 flights of stairs, which after the marathon was not fun.

Good price/location ratio. The rooms are rather small but clean. An interesting "detail" in the form of a "walk-through bathroom" which connects two rooms. Don't expect anything too fancy but for the neighborhood! The hotel is located in the Upper West Side neighborhood (quiet and safe) of NYC not far from the Hudson River and walking distance to 79th Street...

The personnel was really nice and helped me out with my broken luggage even if they were not supposed to carry it from the street. The room was small but nice, and the bathroom was very clean. Nice location ad really close to the subway station, which makes it great for staying if you want to visit New York and...

Location was good for this hotel, only a few metro stops to most sight seeing places in the city. The room was super tiny, we struggled with two of us and didn't really have room to open suitcases as the bed took up the whole room.pretty much. For 3 nights we paid £350 which I thought was pretty steep but...

This is the 2nd time my kids and I have stayed in this hotel. The location is great, the rooms are cleaned daily, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The Wifi reception was great and so was the TV. The water pressure in the shower was so-so. There are a fridge and microwave in the room and we also...

Rooms are small and "European style". This isn't a posh hotel, but it's is clean and a great price for a fantastic location. Right next to Riverside park and in walking distance of central subway stops. If in NYC, you don't need to spend a lot of time in your hotel room anyway!!

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
