Excellent holiday excellent location

by kildarechick4 on 22 Jan 2017 (Solo Traveller)

I have just returned from 11 days here and the hotel isn't as bad as some of the reviews I have read. The location of this hotel is brilliant it is right in the middle of everything. If you have never been to new york I suggest a visit to madison square gardens the atmosphere is amazing and it's literally just across the road from the hotel. The hop on hop off ferry is brilliant the ticket lasts for about 5 days and is a brilliant way to see everything it even brings you over to the statue is l...

Not recommended

by Mike B on 16 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

first to our arrival someone was assaulted opposite to the hotel, the access stairs is uncomfortable with the luggage, the room is extremely small and at night a mouse is went to bed while sleeping . The front desk staff had non care to this whole situation. Definitely NOT recommended... Next day I change my hotel and lost all my money with non refundable price.

Ideal price and location

by Emma L on 04 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

There is a nice communal outdoor seating area you can use to eat some takeout and/or meet other guests. Yo...

Check established hotels near this such as Holiday, Sheraton or Hilton, you'll be surprised the rate is almost the same. Carpet is too dirty, room generally not clean, heater is centralised, aircon not working aside from the fact location is not safe. DID I MENTION NO ELEVATOR! So if you are travelling with "long haul" luggages, you will not have space anymore aside from the fact that the room is too small including the bed unless your height is 4ft! Transferred to Hilton immediately 3 ho...

On a budget

by Jreger25 on 18 Dec 2016 (Business Traveller)

I needed to travel to New York on a slim budget and searched several properties that I was unfamiliar with. As stated, this trip was driven by low budget needs and booked a room at the Riff. It was only a few blocks from the convention center and the rate met my needs. I was surprised to find out that this property does not have an elevator (that was a first in 30+ years of travel). Staff was friendly and always helpful. There are rooms with and without in room bathrooms. Room was small bu...
