          Thank you for nice welcome and lovely breakfast. The hostess is nice welcoming and accomodating. Place is big clean with cooking facilities and laundry just like home. Only drawback is distance from JR station for those on JR paas. I warmly recommend this place .

          My wife and I are booked at the Hudson for 4 nights from 2nd December, I have read the many reviews and frankly am now quite concerned about the size of the rooms . We have booked a superior queen room and judging by one of the review comments these rooms are still small. My wife suffers from claustrophobia and I would hate her first experience of New York to be marred by our accomodation What is the difference in cost for an upgrade ?

          Hello I have read your e-mail. But, my hotel name is " Hotobil " in nara, Japan, not " Hudson" and not in NY. I guess your e-mail is wrong transmission. Please check your e-mail destination. Thank you.
