My stay at the hotel was perfect and thanks to the staff who were very courteous and helpful. As i was traveling alone the room was just right with storage space, microwave, television and a single bed. House keeping cleans the room everyday. The location is great, about 10 to 20 minutes by taxi to all the major sitings. Most...

Best value for money, even if its too much for a tourist from a developing country in Asia. I say this because the location of the hotel makes up for the price. Its walking distance to Central Park, the ambience of Sex in the City, the nearby cafe -love Zabar's - and the river view! The room is clean, accommodated...

This hotel was well located as was a short walk to subway and a short walk to restaurants, bars and shops. The room was small but adequate, with single bed, tv, cupboard, bedside table - fine for one or two nights. The bathroom was also small but adequate, and clean with well functioning shower. There was quite a draft coming...

Yes, the Riverside has tiny very basic rooms. I'm OK with that. This is my 3rd stay here but I won't be back. Tuesday night was good, now it is 2am on Thursday and there has been shouting, yelling, and the sounds of something being dragged down the stairs. Now the shouting has moved to the street. There is no...

After my first night, I moved to a new hotel. Yes, the rooms are tiny and worn like all the other reviewers remarked. But also my shower water only had two temperature settings, cold and lukewarm. The sink had warmer water. Overall, the room at $150 was pricey for the quality.

The negatives have been covered very well by other reviewers. Although the front desk staff had just stopped by, dressed as if they were in the process of changing the oil in their cars, they were pleasant and helpful with a good attitude. There's no question that whoever owns this place has pretty much given up and is just going...

The room/suite was not very clean, walls needed fresh paint, carpet had rips, beds were very uncomfortable, the mattress was extremely hard. The shower head dripped very cold water while you were trying to take a hot shower, you couldn't close it completely so it dripped all day. You couldn't control the room heater, your option was extremely hot with...

Clean decent budget hotel. Rooms are very basic and small, but great value for money. Not far from subway, so easy to get down town. A coat of paint and new flooring will do wonders. Reception friendly and helpful. Will stay here again.

Scruffy public areas. Room small but clean and comfortable. Good value for NYC. Great location - quiet and felt safe. Close to 79th subway station, central park and Zabar's. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. Would stay there again.

I would not rely on the elevators so if you have someone that needs one this is not the place for you. They were out of service for much of our time spent there so we needed to walk up 6 flights of stairs, which after the marathon was not fun.

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.
