    Very good 8,0
    Worth a try
    A good hotel for a few days. I would definitely go back. This trip room was hot and no air cooling available. Window was broken and off track.

    Fair 4,0
    We found the hotel very old and does not look good, also the bathrooms very old and poorly refurbished and the attention, not very good, the only salvageable is the location

    Good 6,0
    Looks nice but I was disappointed
    Pros: Lobby was nicely decorated, the room’s size was fine, price was good in the beginning. Conns: Room smells, very noisy environment we were in 2nd floor and you can hear next door people, street noise too. I didn’t sleep both nights. Bathtub was crack. No microwave in the restaurant or entire hotel to reheat my niece’s pizza ( unbelievably )

    Exceptional 10,0
    Great Hotel for a great price
    Surprised at how nice this hotel was. For the price, I was expecting the typical NYC dumpy hotel. But this was a super-nice hotel. Will definitely stay there again.
