1/5 Terrible

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Horrible smell, finally I had to move to another hotel. I could not even spend the first night. I could not stand the horrible smell of foods that was inside the building and also getting into my room. Also I was not glad with the bed sheets and the bedspread was stained. It was quite a negative impression to see the place having read the rating that is stated in your page. It was not even near to be acceptable the situation, plus considering that it is winter an very cold.

Perfect place to stay for a couple days. Located in a fairly quiet part of the neighborhood, about a 30 minute Uber ride to Times Square!
