We stayed here whilst celebrating our son's 21st & shared a 2 bunk family room. Everything was fine. The room was more than adequate given that we were only there to sleep. The shared bathrooms were spacious and clean and there were enough of them that we didn't need to queue. The location was good. Lots of interesting places to...

I took a school party here and there were a number of health and safety issues of which other teachers undertaking visits should be aware. Firstly we had three rooms with no safety rail on the top bunk. After I reported this one was replaced but not the others. The ladders were also unsafe - ours did not fit on...

Although the staff were very welcoming, the rooms were small and unsafe. There were no safety frames on top of the bunk beds and a lack of air conditioning and heating. The bathrooms were also unclean.

The motel has a good location but for 127 dollars you get little value: a tiny and really shabby room, leaky windows, hard beds and plumbing that keeps making loud noises throughout the night. The room for 127 dollars has no bathroom although it's called a deluxe room. Check out Pod39 in stead which offers good deals for the traveller...

The rooms are tiny. I cant even turn around without hitting something. I was in a 2 person room. With one set of bunk beds, a desk(which is totally unnecessary), and a massive box tv that doesn't work. There is also a mini fridge which as a half board place is understandable, but it doesn't work. There is no where...

Rooms are clean, extremely small. I read reviews and was well warned. I don't mind small spaces and found the room to be adequate. The bed was comfortable. The room ran hot but the window opened and allowed the cool air in. The staff wasn't friendly, but they are volunteers. I had a room within the shared bathrooms area, I...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
