The hostel is in a great location as it is really close on the subway to Times Square. The guy at reception was really friendly and gave us tips on where to go and what to do. There is a bagel stall right outside and a great food mart just around the corner. Plenty of amenities without having to walk...

I just came back from my third stay at Royal Park this past week and i have some strong feelings as to its good and its bad.

Despite me confirming the booking in advance when my partner and I arrived the en suite room that was booked was not available due to an unspecified 'situation'. What made it worse was the level of customer service on display. The receptionist offered a small discount for our inconvenience, then was rude for the rest of our stay, eg. Starting...

I stayed at the Royal Park for 7 nights from 23 to 30 May 2013. I needed budget accommodation in New York and knew that anything around $A100 a night was going to be very basic. I booked a single room with shared bathroom. The room I was given left me in a state of shock. I expected tiny, but...

After spending 6 nights in a 4 star hotel in Midtown, I was nervous about having to move and spend our last night in NYC (due to flight plan changes) in a Hotel/Hostel in the Upper West Side. When we arrived and I seen the shabby but clean reception, I felt slightly disheartened, but how wrong I was! The man...

We did not have the best first impression. We checked-in after check-in time but our room was not clean at all in that moment and nobody did mention it. WI-FI connection was not working first two days and our fire alarm had low batteries so it made annoying sound every single minute. After two days we connected our laptops and...

Looked forward to trying a new property to stay in. Paid for the reservation in advance, so couldn't just leave, and since it was 11pm, not much choice. Got bit during the night! Possibly bed bugs! Had to stay there but the place was filthy, no phone in the room, dirty bathroom, pictures are not accurate, staff was not accommodating....

I stayed here with my husband 22-26th May - from the start the staff could not do enough and even allowed for my husbands post to be delivered a few days earlier (stuff you can't get delivered in the UK).

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
