The location is amazing.. but the hotel has no daily house keeping service. The rooms are clean but especially the bathroom was so tiny that we had difficulty placing our toothbrush! Not worthed for the money!

This is a great hotel at a great price in an amazing location. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the room was really comfortable. Central Park is one block from the front door. Highly recommend this hotel.
