Stayed for 5 nights - Hotel spotlessly clean, staff very helpful and friendly. Fantastic view from the rooftop bar. Beds and pillows so comfortable we didn't want to leave. Amazing location - couldn't ask for more.
We recently stayed at the Strand for a quick weekend to NYC. The staff were SUPER friendly and nice, the hotel is in a great Midtown Manhattan location that is close to a ton and easy access to all. My only minor complaint was that the room was small (as most Manhattan rooms are).
This was my first time staying at a Yotel (and in NYC, for that matter). The rooms are small and not overly private but are great for couples. Check in is relatively simple (there is help available for any hiccups). Also offered is a complementary muffin breakfast, decent wi-fi, and tv (some premium channels included). It was within walking distance of almost everything as well, there were countless shops and restaurances within 10-20 minutes of walking, and even more farther out!

Yotel is a first class hotel experience at an affordable price. Check in is all about efficiency. We have Kiosks that are …More
First of all Hotel Metro is nicely situated on W35th Street between Fifth Avenue and Broadway so you are nicely situated for getting out and about. The best thing about this hotel is James the concierge who cannot do enough to help each and every guest who asks for help. Sadly he wasn't n duty everyday during my stay and his stand-in is in no way as helpful. He is very grumpy and abrupt and heaven only knows why he is doing this job! Reception staff are all very helpful. My room was clean though I did have a huge crack in my sink in the bathroom. The wifi is a bit hit and miss and the two free to use computers in the Business Centres tend to play up quite a lot. The complimntary beakfast at first appears a little limited and dull but it is actually quite suffice - the main problem is that the breakfast dining room is totally inadiquate to accomodate the amount of people that want to use it at busy times. I never went in a found a suitable table at any time. Having said that I would happily return to this hotel and would certainly tell friends about it. You get what you pay for.
If you are looking for a central New York hotel, at half the price that other hotels are charging. This is the one. Clean and tidy hotel with accommodating staff. Shared bathrooms are kept extremely clean. Will stay again if I am in central New York
Some of NYC’s best-known landmarks are north of 14th and south of 59th—or Midtown Manhattan. Its western half is home to Manhattan's largest venues: the Javits Center and Madison Square Garden. In the Garment District, designers try to stay a cut above fashion's latest trends. Nearby, Hell's Kitchen is hot thanks to Restaurant Row. In one block on West 46th, diners can dash from Bangkok to Brazil.
