    The room was stylish and very quiet. The Bed was very comfortable and liked the shower as well. It was also a great location for my needs and could walk to a lot of places.

    I didnt like that it wasnt advertised that due to the construction, the restaurant and bar/lounge was not yet open. There was no food in the hotel with no room service. This was an inconveinence in the mornings. I feel for the price there should be some ameneties.

    The power shower was a fantastic way to wake up in the morning. Excellent location for Times Square and other touristy things.

    The following were not in the room as described by Booked.net - ipod dock, ironing facilities, hairdryer (although I got this when asked at reception and no tea or coffee making facilities.

    The location is excellent. Right at Times Square. The staff were very nice and helpful. The room was a bit small but nicely designed. The bed was also very comfortable.

    We happened to be there right when they were doing renovations in the lobby. Yes there was a mess but the noise could not be heard from the 4th floor which is where our room was. However from the progress we saw during the week we were there I dont think its gonna take them long to finnish plus it looks like once finished its gonna be a great Hotel. The maid forgot to give us towels on a couple of occasions and sometimes only gave us one towel instead of two. The soaps were never replaced either. Apart from that everything was great.

    Location, it was close to all main points.

    location is excellent.

    they were making restoration, so it was so noisy. and the hotel don't look like its pictures.

  • Single
    5.8

    Nothing, except the hôtel is extremely close to Time Square...

    The hotel is refurbishing and changing its name... Because of that, we couldn't use the fridge in the room!!!!! Link? Difficult to understand, and the fridge was locked which mean you couldn't even bring a bottle of coke or water to be refreshed! Really nice!!!!The room is extremely small which for the price is surprising...

  • Single

    Hotel staff were very accomodating, friendly ad helpful. Location was excellent and the room was great.

    The only thing lacking in the hotel was there were no computers to use the internet, however if you had your own, there was wifi.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The newly refurbished rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable and larger than we expected. The location was brilliant for the price that we paid - just steps from Times Square. Staff were very friendly and quick to help with any queries we had.

    They have changed their name to 'The Sanctuary', but failed to advise us of this before our arrival, making the hotel difficult to find. Loud screeching in the pipes woke us several times during the night. There were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

  • Couple

    Unbeatable location if you want to be in the heart of manhattan. Room was stylish and immaculately clean, staff very friendly.

    Hotel lobby still in process of being refurbished so no bar/dining facilities on site. Didn't make that much diference to overall stay.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The staff were very nice they always greeted me every time I come in and out of the hotel.

  • Couple
    7.8

    The location is fantastic. 100 meters to the north end of Times Square and several subway lines. 500 meters to Rockefeller Center. The only better location for a tourist would be near a subway station with even more lines, such as Penn Station/Madison Square Garden or 7th avenue and 42nd street (south end of Times Square).

    During our visit, the hotel was undergoing renovation. Apart from that, the only problem we had was that the heater fan made noice all the time.

    They plan to raise the room rates to luxury level (high).
