Small and super efficient
Fabulous place on a lively block in the otherwise pretty sterile midtown east side. Close to the no 6, E and M trains. Bathroom down the hall, postage stamp of a room which is fine. A tad pricey for a room w no private bath. My one small complaint is the bathrooms weren’t cleaned as fast as they were last time I stayed here.

Comfy and efficient
Great place to stay for lone travelers. The space a very small, but very efficient. Also I was alike to upgrade to private bathroom for an affordable price.

See the Sites
Are you going to NYC to see the sites or hang out in your hotel room? If you like to hang out in your hotel room, this isn't the place for you. It's only slightly awkward when you run into other folks wearing nothing but a towel.
