On they state that the hotel has a pool, gym, and mini bar inside room. that is a lie. The room was very small, the light bulb in the bathroom wasn’t working, also the bathroom mirror had a big crack.

The room was for just sleeping so I choose the bunk beds. The issue I had with the room is that they divided a room and there was no sound control. I could hear the room attached to mine. They could hear me. Every little thing. Then the only other issue I had was that they called me to “remind” me that the room was a non smoking room and that the “manager “ did inspections of the rooms. When I informed the front desk clerk (male, didn’t get his name) that no one smoked in the room he response was very sarcastic to whomever he was speaking with on his end. These rooms have smoke detectors. If there was smoke. Guess what. It would detect. Other than that I enjoyed my time. I hope this can be a learning lesson on how not to assume and make your guest feel targeted for no reason.

Comfortable and modern stay.
The room was very comfortable, modern, and clean. My only complaint is that there was not a gym, and when I realized I had forgotted a comb in my packing, I asked the front desk and they didnt have anything like that available. I also needed to mail off a letter, and they were out of stamps so they said they could not mail it for me.

Convenient, Clean bit Tired
Convenient location and clean, but very noisy and the most stupidly designed bathroom I’ve ever seen - the floor was flooded every time we showered The bar / restaurant was also closed.

This hotel is excellently located for all Manhattan sights and has a subway stop very close for any further trips. It's excellent value for money and rooms are well equipped with everything you need. Would definitely recommend and will use again.

Wouldn’t stay again
I paid for the Water tower room with a terrace and was checked into a different room. When I asked about it I was taken to that room and it turns out the terrace was covered by construction scaffolding. Construction is going on right across the street and there is no views as the write up says. I could’ve stayed somewhere else for the price and that would’ve had what I was hoping for.

The Paul was mostly great! It is clean and very cute. Our room was tiny but it’s NY and a place to sleep is all we needed. We had a room with bunkbeds which was pretty fun but is not for everyone. There was one small pillow and one thin blanket per bed but we requested extras and the friendly staff happily obliged. My biggest complaint is the paper thin walls. Still, we ran a fan for white noise and it was mostly fine. We would have loved a LOT more light by the bathroom mirror, as well.
