After making my reservation, the airline changes the schedule and while I was traveling through the app the reservation is canceled, I proceed to communicate multiple times with the hotel and they NEVER wanted to reinstall the reservation and even so they left it canceled, they do not want to give me options. There are no options, there is no refund, there is nothing to do, the deal has been the worst when I contacted them.

I had a great stay here in August 2021. I was in NYC for a week visiting family. This location was convenient to my family’s place in Brooklyn, convenient to LaGuardia Airport, and had many shops and restaurants within 3 blocks. The place was clean and well-run. The bed was quite comfortable; I slept well all week. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Wifi was free and speedy. Everything in the bathroom worked perfectly. There were more than enough places to conveniently plug in and recharge my electronic devices. A couple of very minor routine issues were very quickly and easily resolved. Due to COVID restrictions, they were not serving breakfast, but were providing coffee and tea in the mornings. The rates were low for the area, and the place was quite a bargain. It’s designed to satisfy a traveller’s basic needs, and it does that well. If you’re looking for a luxury experience, you should keep looking; but if having a clean, comfortable, well-run room in a convenient location fits your desires, you would be happy staying here!

Room had no towels, upon check-in receptionist told us (myself and another guest who checked-in moments apart) that towels would be sent up when they arrive none was ever sent......walls are thin I was actually hearing the guests next door doing their business in the middle of the night, after traveling 15 + hours from Atlanta by bus I arrived tired, asked if it was possible to check-in early (an hour and a half before regular check-in time) I was told it would be $58 + taxes which I thought was absolutely ridiculous she said I couldn't even stay in a lobby area to wait so I went across the street bought a bubble tea just to sit in the shop to pass the time.....never again would I use this place. and it had no breakfast as advertised and one week later my deposit is not back on my card

Pro was location. You can see the subway one block away. I felt fairly safe in neighborhood walking around at night. Nice variety at breakfast but cafe only had 4 tables and were always full. Small breakfast area. Lobby was clean and updated but hallways and rooms are not. Toilet never flushed right. 2 out of 3 ice machines didnt work. No vending machines worked. The front doors dont ever lock so anyone can walk in and get to the elevator. Staff was friendly. Beds were comfortable and pillows. Quiet neighborhood. Alarm clock kept going off every morning at 5am even though I turned the alarm feature off everyday. I just unplugged it. Rooms and hallways need freshing up. They are dark and gloomy. Window air conditioner duct taped and leaking in the hallway. Several convenience stores and restaurants around the corner. Nice fresh juice shop too. Overall worth a lower price and would stay there again due to location and price. Only 20 minutes to many places.
