Si lo que quieres es conocer NY sin gastar cientos de dólares en comida, esta es una buena opción, es un hotel limpio, habitaciones pequeñas y no muy modernas, sin embargo cuenta con una pequeña cocineta lo que te permite hacer tus desayunos y cenas sin gastar tanto, buena opción para llegar solo a dormir cómodo pero sin lujos
I am not sure if I got very lucky with my booking, but to get a hotel room literally across the street from the United Nations that has a working air conditioner in the summer for around $100 a night is close to a miracle! The rooms include a small kitchen and very large and comfortable bed, probably the nicest bed I have seen in any hotel in a long time. I am still in shock over how cheap the room was and for anyone considering a stay in NYC, you should definitely check this place out. It looks like a typical apartment building from the outside, and it is not until you stand in the lobby that you realize it is a hotel.Only downside is that the view in the room I had was literally covered up by a wall and the AC.
I stayed in New York Apartment Hotel for about a week in winter 2012 and I found their shared apartments (no rooms) to be clean and spacious. There is a communal area albeit more like a kitchen/diner where free breakfasts are served daily. The hotel is reasonably located close to transport routes (bus and subway) to/from timesquare and downtown. It's also not too far from Harlem & Central Park (by foot or bike) as well as Bronx & Queens (via the subway). The staff at the reception are also friendly and helpful. On a down-side, there is no lobby hence, you are likely to spend most times either in your apartment or town.
I'd like to first state that I had doubts about this hotel before arriving, because there were no reviews or useful information about it. When I arrived at the address I found this new built building, with no signs, and an intercom with some apartment numbers 2A..2B... When you arrive just go right in, the door is open, and that's where you'll find the front desk.
Soon was I to discover that they only opened one month ago, so no wonder there were no reviews yet. I had a very pleasant surprise when I got to my room.
I had a 4bed co-ed room. It's an apartment with somehow two rooms, but connected. After entering, you have the bathroom right in front of you, then a corridor continues on the left to the second "room" with the kitchen and two beds. Before the 2nd room, you'll find the first "room" with 2 beds, on the right. My room was 3A, others might have different configurations.
The subway is relatively close, you'll have to walk a few blocks to E116th st & Lexington ave. There's also a station at 125th st.
Overall a great experience, highly recommended. Great value as well.
You also have free breakfast included (coffee, orange juice, milk, croissants, jam, toast, muffins..)
