Late checkout made available upon request was really great as headed for a Europe bound night flight
I only stayed at Riverside for one night. You honestly, get what you pay for and for the hotel to be budget friendly with a private bathroom, it was awesome! The staff was amazing, and it was pretty much quiet on my floor throughout the night.
Only issue I had with the hotel, is the comfort of my room. It was extremely small,'almost dormitory status. As soon as you open the door, there's the bed. The shower is also extremely small. But hey! It's better than a big room, and a shared bathroom.
Close to public transport, great restaurants and a spare room for some privacy. A real value stay.
Bed in main room needs a upgrade.
Beautiful quiet location on Riverside Drive. View of park and river. Remarkably low cost for a two-room suite. We didn't spend any time in our rooms, so we didn't care very much about their quality. Felt most like a cheap old hotel in Europe.
Rooms were very small and strangely arranged. Soundproofing from next room was pretty bad. Typical old New York residential building - room was really overheated so had to open window on a freezing winter night.
Lovely safe area. Close to bars shops Mcdonalds transport .Views from bedroom outstanding over Hudson River.Free unlimited wifi excellant.
Rooms cramped , old fashioned, showers basic, no bath small sinks which were pointless. No kettle in room. Electrics look like they need total rewire.Rooms either very hot or very cold.You have to weigh up all the negatives versus lovely area.
location on Riverside park close to Broadway subway
Easy access to subway and Zabar's.
Small cafe was closed - on vacation?
convenient location and comfortable room. Good value for the dollar.
excellent location and quiet with good views. Staff were very courteous. Furnishings are basic but this is an excellent budget hotel.
We liked the fact that the hotel was close to many Manhattan attractions, such as central park, time square, the Museum of natural history among others. We also liked that the hotel was near Broadway Av, which has many restaurants and stores to buy anything you want. We would definitely will go back to the hotel. Of course is not fancy, but it was clean and comfortable. The shower was great, it had a lot of pressure. Not everyone might like that, but we loved the shower. The staff is very professional and treat you nicely.
The only downside probably was that they did not offered breakfast, but considering the price it did not matter.
No heating on the room. I called front desk and was told, "there's no reason for you to be cold! I'm sitting by the door and I'm not cold so you shouldn't be cold either!" Thankfully, I recorded her on audio so management can listen to it- if mngmnt is interested. I asked staff for a portable electric heater and was told the hotel does not offer that. Doors do not have security lock- so anyone van unlock your door while you're asleep or away. Staff at front desk was rude- the rudest I'd ever seen.
Location was ok
Filthy, beat up. Wait an hour for the elevator. Bed was broken. Pulled a bait and switch on the room. Booked a double but of course they didn't have one so they gave us two singles joined by a jack and Jill. TV remote didn't work and TV was May be 1965 with just a few channels. Pay a little more and stay somewhere else..
Didn't like the hotel not having a plunger under the bathroom sink in case of a toilet clog.
Price....location....good value for the money.
Bit of a tight squeeze.....maybe this is typical for NY city
Cost, location, excellent staff, modern plumbing in bathroom
Should give extra towels, no hair dryer in bathroom, no cable TV, more comfortable bed
Location location location!! Less than five minute walk to a subway station and cafés all around. Natural history museum and central park less than 15 mins away too! The staff were the friendliest bunch too, very helpful if you needed tips on what to do/ how to do it. And they let us keep our luggage there after we checked out. We stayed in a suite, so two single rooms connected by a shower room - the rooms decor could be updated (paint peeling, old fashioned) but honestly in NYC whose spending that much time in their hotel rooms?!
The decor in the rooms was a little drab.
Location is good
There were no shutter on doors, heard knocking at night, but dared not open the door.
The staff was very polite and helpful. The location was very good and close to the train. The room was very clean as well.
Location and views were amazing. Loved all the windows. Loved the neighborhood. Would stay here again. Convenient to shopping, excellent restaurants and transportation.
The shower was an adventure. Scalding hot to ice cold all within a matter of seconds. The doors to the rooms were not secure.
good bed, nice shower, pleasant staff, was able to turn heating up and down.
guy next door put his TV on at 4am - but that's not really the hotel's fault.
Close to subway (79th street stop less than 5 mins walking) Nice bars restaurants and shopping in the area Staff people were nice Overall good value 4 money
Room extremely small
Bathroom was small
No coffee in room or downstairs.
Location was good. View of River is beautiful. Having extra sink in 2nd bedrm helped having 3 use one bath. Rooms recently redone, so hopefully hallways will be too! Got free parking 2 days on street by Hotel door Wed. & Thurs. (Be advised: street cleaning is Tues & Fri at 11am, so those times you must move car.) Cafe by lobby is very good! (Count your change tho', lol)
Rm descrip. said 2 twin beds, it is actuall a trundle bed. We had only 3 people in the 2 bedrm suite. If you have 4, you ll need to pull a trundle bed out, which may block the door. Only soap provided, bring shampoo, etc. That said, our stay was very pleasant.
Friendly front desk folks, great location
Tiny rooms, few amenities
