Great location, great staff, lovely decor, and we loved the snacks that are always available.
location, library theme and 'useful' extras (ie. free 24/7 snacks and beverages in lounge rather than gyms, spas etc)
manhattan prices and room sizes
The staff was great...Alvin was so ready to help us. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed. Loved the breakfast and wine and cheese. We would definitely return. Also, loved the location. The hotel felt good!
We didn't experience anything negative.
The location was excellent, in the middle of midtown right next to grand central station and the libary. The staff were very polite, service was excellent and informative. Hotel rooms were very clean and comfortable. Decorated to a good standard and we'll equiped.
Small Hotel, different to other hotels, nice bar on the roof. Wifi included, perfect location.
Petit room is not only extremely small but has also a very small bed, was sold as a double room with a bed which is normally for a single person good. Not possible to order egg dishes for breakfast.
Lovely hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The reading room was a bonus with drinks and pastries through the day and cheese and wine in the evening. Didn't need to bring my kindle as the hotel had a fantastic selection of books
Window in the room was a bit draughty and could hear the traffic.
they didn't clean the room till nearly 3pm - this is not acceptable.
Staff were amazing in their genuine desire to help visitors. Loved the fact that food and drink were available 24 hrs free of charge. The place was very homely and comfortable and so well located. A bit of civilisation within the city. Can't speak highly enough of this hotel.
Everything was just perfect - staff are fabulous, very helpful, good facilities, nice bed sheets. Everything is included in the rate - breakfast, wifi, wine/cheese in the afternoon! Much better value for money than various 5* hotels that we have used before in NYC. Will be back!
Air con a bit noisy but that' the only minus that I can think about.
Excellent location. Very friendly staff. Cleanliness.
It´s rather expensive. Front desk people was not connected at all with our needs (phone calls,correspondence, etc)
Location was central and not too noisy. The staff were welcoming, friendly and always helpful. The Hotel was like a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of New York. We enjoyed staying at the Library Hotel and hope to stay longer next time.
Very kind, helpful and service-minded staff! Wine and cheese evenings - and coffee, tea, fruits and cookies all day and night long - give one a wonderful chance to relax in the beautiful Reading Room. Books, magazines, newspapers and DVD library available.
We would have appreciated an enlargement of the breakfast buffet, we stayed for 10 days and the breakfast was good but same, same every morning.
I am a real bookworm, so being surrounded by all those books made me feel really comfortable. Sorry I didn't have time to read any of them, so a return, and a longer stay would be perfect. We particularly liked the breakfast room on Floor 2, very comfortable and great to be able to use it whenever we felt like it. I appreciated the fact that the librarians noted my birthday with a very suitable present.
Not too big and impersonal - very cosy relaxed and location is ideal and central, would stay here again
This a great little hotel. The staff are exceptionally helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms and facilities are indeed 'boutique' but the location is so good that you can't wait to get out and about in nearby Times Square, the Rockefeller Centre etc etc. The 'library; theme attracted us to it in the first place and it would be a great place to chill out, read and relax. For us New York isn't that kind of a place.
Price of a couple of glasses of wine for a nightcap on the Terrace were a bit pricey
24 hour access to the first floor lounge with beverages and snacks. It was a great reading and rec room. Outstanding breakfast. Best fruit salad ever! Top floor bar and lounge area also freely available in and out of hours added to home away from home feel. Wonderful staff, great location.
Internet was patchy at times but seemed to work best in breakfast/lounge area.
This is an excellent hotel and we would stay there again. The complimentary "breakfast" and the availability of tea/ coffee during the day was an added attraction. Staff were friendly, efficient and helpful.
The bar was somewhat pricey and the choice of drinks limited. The room we stayed in was small although advertised clearly as such but this did not detract overly from our enjoyment of this hotel.
Very comfortable room, excellent breakfast, snacks and evening wine and cheese reception. Impeccable service. We had a public transport pass and were 2 mins walk from the subway at Grand Central.
Unfortunately the roof terrace was closed for repair while we were there.
All the extras....breakfast, wine & cheese, chilled water, fruit etc.. all included in the price!
The Lbrary hotel offers a friendly and helpful staff, quiet, spacious, comfortable rooms, a library themed decor complete with books and beds that provide a restful sleep. Just a few blocks from the NY Public Library, Bryant Park and Grand Central Terminal.
The tv reception was snowy with only a limited number of channels but then we didn't watch it much.
Very good service, will definitely come back.
We were only in Manhattan for one night, and we flew in on a red-eye, so it was important our hotel be a little sanctuary. That it was. From the moment we arrived, we encountered amazing customer service. In fact, somehow our reservation from Booking.com had not made it to the hotel, and upon seeing my face of despair (red-eye induced) they immediately reassured me there were rooms available, they'd match the price, and then gave us an upgrade. Awesome. The room was so beautifully done, and the books everywhere were a nice touch. The space was very big for NYC standards, and we slept so comfortably. Location was great- safe, easily accessible to public transportation, and quiet enough that you feel truly relaxed when you return. This is a new favorite for me, and one worth spending a bit more on to feel that sense of sanctuary.
Cheese and wine reception for guests, cracking bagels for breakfast, genuinely friendly staff (at the desk, door boy and reception room staff), perfect location, jazz radio in the room,
conservatory was under renovation work so we couldn't check it out and Wi-Fi signal was weak in the bedroom (probably a blessing in disguise though!)...
Central location, comfort, character, breakfast, cheese and wine in the early evenings. It could not have been better!
All staff were welcoming, friendly, & anxious to please. My petite room was beautifully appointed & perfect for just the one of me. The public rooms were also beautiful, large and comfortable. The continental breakfast and evening wine reception were generous in offerings and hours of service.
There was nothing I didn't like about The Library Hotel!
