This is a bargain hotel in a great location for transit. I didn't realize from the description that the showers and toilets were in the hallway. That said, the hotel is clean, basic, inexpensive (for NYC) and a few blocks from Penn Station. The desk staff is helpful and the rooms, although small, have everything you'd need including wifi.

Don't be fooled by this place!
I went on a business trip, and I was hoping to save a bit of money. Found this hotel, and thought it was pretty nice looking. Looked through the pictures, and booked it. Now, they told me it was obvious in their page and website that there was NO BATHROOM IN THE ROOM, but it isn't true. Or at least it isn't prominent enough. I arrived there late, and only after they processed my payment is that they told me my room didn't have a bathroom. I called and they tried to help, but I don't think their customer service people are as skilled (including language skills) to really help you at all. They were in the past, which is why I have used for so long. So long story (and it was long) short, I had to book another hotel on my own dime, because they refused to give me the money back. Not only for that night, but for the next night as well. They are con artists, and they are rude when you disagree with them. I will never go back to this place, and have already send emails to all my business friends never to book a room in this place. And I will keep doing it to make sure they don't forget it. That's how bad my experience was. So bad that I won't let it go. In the future, might want to either watch who they are doing business with, or make sure they tell you before the confirmation page, when you've already paid your bill, that there is no bathroom in the room. Worst part is that the other hotel I stayed, which was extremely nice, was only $50 more.
