Better location impossible. Located between Grand Central Station and the Chrysler Building. You can find good deals in August or during low tourist season but it is still quite expensive. In August we paid a little less than 200 € a night for 2 adults and 2 children. The hotel is a bit old so don´t expect modern furniture or fashionable decoration.
This is the perfect location for this Boutique Hotel with themed rooms relating to books - a room with Norman literature, a room with children's stories, etc. Excellent service, with a terrace on the 14th floor with great views and a relaxation area on the 1st floor with snacks (cheese, crackers, juices ...) included in the room rate. Free Wifi. Facing a Starbucks ...
The Bedford Hotel is located next to Grand Central Station and close to Times Square and the Empire State Building. Rooms have mini-fridges, coffee makers, tea kettles and a tap. They're not too scrupulous in cleaning (but not dirty either). I spent a week and they didn't change the sheets once, not to mention vacuuming or cleaning the bathroom. The price is reasonable, somewhere around $200 a night if I remember correctly. If you are someone who values location more than cleaning at hotels, this may be the hotel for you. If you're a neat freak, avoid this hotel! The overall service is not good.
This hotel has a great location and is excellent value for money. Virtually all staff speak Spanish. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The bathrooms are old, but they work perfectly and are spotless. Despite its central location, you do not hear the noise of the city. I was on the 5th floor. The beds are very comfortable and large. Opposite, there is a place that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in a buffet style, it's gorgeous. Highly recommended for a no frills stay.
I stayed at this hotel in May 2004, during my honeymoon. I loved the hotel, and it was better than I expected. It is a beautiful hotel, very well located, next to Central Station. The lobby is huge and very nice. The rooms must be great, but I made the mistake of ordering one double bed, so I had small room, but otherwise fine. Just under the hotel, out the back door, there is a shop and restaurant open 24 hours, which is called Heaven and it is typical American. Nice for breakfast. The staff treated us well, I just did not find anyone who spoke Spanish. I recommend it to everyone. I would return to this hotel.
