Perfect for a NYC visit
Great place to stay- comfortable beds and helpful staff. Thoughtful touches like the mini fridge, complimentary coffee, and clothing rack (with hangers included, for once!) were also nice. Agree with what others have said about the noise- you can definitely hear other guests moving around the hallways and closing doors. Having said this, complimentary ear plugs are provided and quite effective.

This place was a scam. Literally a cot in a closet. Do not stay here.

CITY ROOMS NYC - Chelsea, New York
Room was fine. Nice sized bed that was pretty comfortable. Shared bathrooms were also pretty clean. Unfortunately in terms of getting sleep I wouldn't recommend this room. You can hear pretty much everyone from outside of your room. Every time someone opens and closes a door it's loud enough to hear. Also there was an incident where a guest was locked out of their room and banged on the door late at night until they were let in. Sadly the staff didn't seem to be too helpful in resolving the incident either. Could also hear when guest were talking very loudly from their own rooms. The WiFi was also not very reliable. I was constantly being disconnected from it and when I was able to get on the connection was extremely slow. In all I'd say if you're looking for a cheap place to stay then this is the place but just know that you end up getting what you paid for in terms of quality.
