It was okay, every morning the cleaning lady would start cleaning the room at 9am waking me up. It sucked because I was tired from traveling and I wanted to get some sleep!

A great place to discover New York by bicycle
Parking for my bike in front of the entrance. Excellent location to visit all of New York and the east of the island. Good Wifi and easy access. Comfortable bed despite my 1m88. the entire clean room. Heating corect but no more. Only disappointment, no breakfast included and only two fridges available.
