The network speed is slow. And I find INSECTS in room and restroom. It feels disgusting. And when I just want to keep the room for another day it takes a long time to check-out and check-in again and adjust the room. What a mess it is

super clean very nice spot in the city close to restaurants transportation and central park building was truly beautiful.The bathrooms were shared which was really new for me but it was no big deal I never had to wait and it was super clean .

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Not a good place for long stays, more of a sleep, shower and get out and do your thing. I don’t know why they say it’s a shared bathroom, it’s NOT. You basically “share” with the entire floor (60 rooms). Staff is helpful, cleaning ladies are nice. Would not recommend for old people or people that like being comfortable.
