              Room was clean ; maid was honest; staff helpful; room was large and even contained a fridge and cooking facilities! Amazing for the price and for NYcity; location was perfect for our business; bathrooms clean and all plumbing worked, hot water, clean sheets, comfortable bed!

              The interior design was brown and institutional. The restaurant was expensive and not good so we went to Starbucks for coffee etc in morning....the elevators were terribly slow and one even broke down whilst we were there. No other complaints.

            • Family with children
              9.6

              The room is very big, very comfortable, specially when traveling with children; it has a full kitchen, and a very big living room area... the hotel is on an excellent location... An awsome room for the price!!!

              Although I didn't really mind, the rooms could use a little updating...I Would deffinitely stay again though...

            • Group of friends
              6.2

              The best of the hotel is the location. I believe is to expensive vs what they can offer.

            • Family with children
              8.2

              The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The room was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was great.

              The air conditioning was slow to cool the room and on the last day it broke down.

            • Single
              3.2

              Vallet service needs to improve in getting your car quickly or need to be told in advance how long it will take. It 25 mins which I did not expect.

            • Couple
              5.4

              great location

              definitely not a 4 star hotel. small rooms. dingy carpet. dirty bathtub. hotel needs updating. Staff/concierege could be friendlier

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              Proximity, easy access to all places

              entrance, lift area old and dirty. Poor service, almost non existant. Not close to acceptable 4 star service world wide.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              I loved the location - walking distance to 5th Ave shopping, museums, Broadway theater district and so convenient to subway. The check in process was very quick. My mother and I enjoyed the complementary apples. The room was by far the largest room I have ever stayed in NYC and the bathroom was also by far the largest bathroom I have ever had in a NYC hotel. It was modern, clean and very comfortable. I will definitely stay there in the future and have already recommended it to friends and family

              Elevators are sometimes slow

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              We've stayed at Flatotel often. Love the extremely comfortable platform beds (bad backs), love the spaciousness and cleanliness of the rooms and baths. Usually the rooms are very quiet, although our last stay was an exception.

              On this last occasion, we were in a room with a door to an ajoining room. Our neighbor talked on his phone much of the night, and then snored at an incredibly audible volume. We were shocked at the lack of soundproofing --- felt like he was there in the room with us. Very disturbing to sense of privacy and ability to sleep. Also, there was an unpleasant perfumed/cleaning smell in this particular room when we arrived. Also, we miss having glasses (rather than paper cups) --- even plastic glasses would have been better. And PLEASE bring back coffee-makers !!!

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              The 1-bedroom suite was very spacious (huge, in fact), with city-view windows looking out on 3 sides of the building. We had a comfortable king-size bed in the bedroom, an enormous living/dining room, a full bathroom and a separate half-bath, and a full kitchen with large refrigerator, gas stove, etc. The kitchen was not very well equipped, but we did get a coffee maker on request. We dined in the restaurant Moda one night and thought the food was excellent.

              Housekeeping was a little spotty at times--on some days, they left no hand towels or not enough washcloths. There were only two elevators servicing the entire hotel (floors 8 to 45), making service very slow at times. We always felt like we "lucked out" when the elevator came quickly and made only a couple of stops.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              The rooms were quite spacious and comfortable.

              Half the time the elevators did not work and we would have to wait a long time for an elevator if it wasn't already crowded.

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              The location (a block and a half off the subway in Midtown, 6 blocks south of Central Park) was brilliant.

              While hardly surprising, the room service was pretty ghastly expensive -- soup and a sandwich with fries for $45 or so.

            • Couple
              10.0

              I loved the appearance, the people we're very nice and the location was perfect! Lastly the food in the cafe was awesome!

              nothing at all as wrong with the hotel

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              The room was larger than expected, easy location to walk to different attractions, very helpful staff.

              No, the hotel met our needs for the trip.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              The location is fantastic. The apartment was very comfortable and well appointed.

              The shower was great but it was so powerful it flooded the floor.
