    The front guest staff have a poor knowledge of the area. It is a clearly a business hotel yet facilities for business are lacking and staff knowledge how to address problems with wi fi equipment non existent.

    I had a nice comfortable stay, this hotel is in a nice convient area. It is close to places to eat and not too far from shopping areas, or the subway and buses.

    The breakfast area could be bigger and have more variety choices of breakfast for the guests

    Fabulous

    The Hotel serving staff was very rude. When I cut up my hard boil eggs and wanted to warm it up in the microwave. The lady server was very sarcastic she stated didn't "you read the signs all over the walls". I am very sure that she could have pointed that out without being rude and sarcastic. I think they need some intense lesson on how to treat the hotel guest!!!

    Great location - close to JFK, the subway to Manhattan and local shops. Clean, well appointed rooms, value for money.

    Location can be considered good if you know how to get around. I figured out a lot on my last day. The staff were cheerful and polite, but laconic at best and not very helpful. That said, for New York, the place is very comfortable and the subway is not far at all. As for the area, you either like that sort of place or you don't. I do, but it's me.

    It IS far away from Manhattan, which is why it can afford to be so comfortable. If there were better help on how to get around, it would be nice.

    Location, convenience from airport and subway

    The reception staff was very rude, he did not like when I showed printed copy the reservation confirmation. He also asked me "how much did you pay to Booked.net"?? He also told me that there is no reservation in my name. When I produced the print out, he told me to wait until he faxes it to Booked.net to get a confirmation. I never experienced this in the past. Not only that, when I checked out, I saw that they charged me more than what was mentioned in Booked.net's confirmation! For the 2nd night, they charged me $ 119, but the rate was $ 99 for both nights when I booked online! I would appreciate if Booked.net could find out why I was charged more and why reception staff gave me hard time while checking in. I saw better staff next day

    Superb

    The price for beeing a New York hotel. Close to the subway station, abaot 250 meters and easy to find the station. With several lines in to town. Took abaout 40 minutes to central Manhattan/Times square. In the neighbourhod was several restaurants (favorite american flagship open 24/7), foodshops and laundries, gasstations, carrepairs. The hotel has free Wifi and breakfast is also included in the price. Large tv with a lot of chanells. The hotel is quite close to jfk airport. Tram/subway to go out there.The two queensizebeds in the room was large and very ok to sleep two people in each.

    Personal not so serviceminded.The breakfast has coffee, juice, tea, and bread, butter, marmelade, waffles and eggs.As most european people want a lot more of things to put on the bread it was a litle bit por. I wisched more fresch vegetables and fruit and ham, cheese and sausages included in breakfeast. The breakfast is booring but you are not hungry when you leave the breakfeastroom if you dont wont to.

    Nothing

    My reservation that I made 2 weeks before my stay was cancelled when I arrived to the hotel - without any information in spite that I left my credit card information. Very disapointing!!! The hotel staff offered me motel room behind the hotel for 135$ in cash. After my long complaints he found a room for me in the hotel (before he claimed he did not have anything) but I had to pay 20% more than the rate which I got from Booked.net !!! This was very disapointing

    I can tell that It was one of my worst experiences. After paying about 220$ I surprised when I saw that my room was in basement! So depressing. It was not safe at all and I didn't feel comfortable. One staff was good but two other staff were rude and they were not coaporative. The light in room had problem and refrigerator was off. Drainage of water in shower place had problem. I can say yhe worst experience.

    Great location close to jfk, nice receptionists, good service for the money

    We asked for a crib by our reservation - we did not get one because the hotel does not provide it (but on their web they say they do). Also nobody wrote us even a shot mail they cannot provide us a crib. So quite uncomfortable for a family with a little baby...
