Washington Jefferson Hotel, New York

Hell’s Kitchen homebase
I’ve stayed here before. Property itself is fine, staff is always pleasant and helpful. The rooms are very small, even by NYC standards. It was a SRO back in the day. But if you just want a bed while visiting, it’s fine. Sometimes their rates are a bit overblown, given there’s no onsite dining unless you eat sushi, no minibar, no gym. The neighborhood isn’t unsafe, but it’s filthy. Convenient to theater and city buses at either end of the block. Subway is a short walk

This hotel had everyone I needed and the location was excellent. Well done, well presented, and just plain perfect.

Room was small but had everything we needed inside. Wish it had a small fridge or microwave. Bathroom was nice & bed was comfortable. Was expecting a nicer view but just kept blinds shut the whole time. The fire alarm Saturday morning had us super worried & upset since it kept going on & on. Overall it was a good stay & nice service. Clean and comfortable.

Bathroom sink was clogged. For the price you would think there would be a vending machine or bottled water for their guest.
