Skyline Hotel
Ranked #265 of 473 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed 12 December 2017

The location of the hotel was great, in a really nice area. Super little deli across the road for breakfast. Room was on the 5th floor and was a decent size. The lobby area was nice but could do with some newer, cleaner sofas. Wi-Fi works really good in reception and in rooms as well if you pay for it, its only a few dollars a day. The elevators can only be described as grotty and in desperate need for a clean, there was constantly an unpleasant smell in them. The hallways where the rooms were needed to be re-painted and the carpets needed hoovered. There was often a smell of weed drifting down the corridor. The rooms also needed renovated, the shower was ancient and the walls were thin so you can hear the next room. All in all for a cheap place to stay in New York it did the job and all the staff were very friendly.

I stayed 1 night in this hotel on a business trip to New York. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable and fairly spacious by New York standards. This is an older property and shows its age a bit, but is adequately maintained. Bed was comfortable and sleep quality pretty good. Location is a bit "gritty" and dining options immediately nearby may not be to your taste, but I ate elsewhere in Manhattan before returning to the hotel after my day's business and walked from the hotel to my meetings in Manhattan the next morning, which was an enjoyable walk. I would stay here again.

The only bad experience was that I booked the hotel through a site named Cancelon which Trip Advisor works with. Cancelon took prepayment for the hotel from my credit card and sent me confirmation of my reservation, but never made the reservation at the hotel, so I arrived in New York to find I had nowhere to stay. The hotel staff were very helpful in trying to sort this out, but the hotel was just full for that night, so I only stayed there the second night of my trip and had to stay at another hotel the first night.

There is a simple lesson: DO NOT USE CANCELON for your hotel bookings! The hotel itself was fine.

Room Tip: AVOID using CANCELON to book your room.

Loved the beds, so comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Noise easily heard from other rooms and the lifts were right near us. Very active and busy hotel. Really close to Times Square and other attractions. Enjoyed the vibe of the neighbourhood and easy walks to see intrepid, if that interests you!

Nice to see that you were comfortable in our great beds. Surprised about the noise by the elevator, there are only 8 rooms near the elevator and they are the few twin rooms in the hotel. Great to see that you were pleased with our staff.

Room was at the front of the hotel. Very noisy, no sleep due to road noise. Room very small. Shower needed upgrading. Polite and helpful staff Cleaning service very good. Pool area looked clean. Great view of the city.

Glad you found the staff pleasant and the rooms clean. The windows are double pane, but we are in Nyc, the city that never sleeps.

I stayed here for 5 nights with a friend. This was the third time we've used this hotel, and I have to say the place is looking tired and in need of some TLC. They've rented out the 2nd and 3rd floors to local families as short term affordable housing. That's fine if we hadn't been hit with a bill for 1411.00usd for our stay. Incidentally if you book your room with booking.com make sure you add local taxes to the price advertised. Staff were very friendly, I recognised several faces from previous stays so it appears there's no high turnover of staff. Rooms are comfortable but could do with some attention. I recommend a stay here if you can get a decent discount on the room rates.
