                The convenience and proximity to subway travel. The hotel is reasonably quiet and all employees who were encountered were polite, friendly and efficient. The room was clean and well maintained.

                Elevator servicve is limited to a single car - but worked well and was fairly responsive to request signals.

                location, decor

                bed (noisy and not very comfortable), isolation - noise, price

                I liked the fact that even though we were not booked into a superior room they kept us in there after our first night. They were helpful with certain problems during our stay and friendly.

                Stayed a dorm room. Great place to stay no matter what you're doing in New York. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Cafe downstairs was very good. Location brilliant for sightseeing and shopping.

                Squeaky bed. Not great when you're trying to be quiet in a dorm room

                Good location, but crowded conditions in the dorm style, hostel type accomodation, interesting decor and ambience.

                Lack of lockers was not disclosed in their website. The only lockers are those which management must be summoned to let you into, with a threat of a charge of 100's of dollars if you misplace the little key

                the room design made me feel as if I lived in NY myself. it's not fancy or trendy but authentic and I loved the wooden floor. moreover I appreciated the young and international crowd staying at the place.

                although my room did not face the main street, it was noisy (air condition). also I think the rooms could be rather cold during the winter season and was wondering whether the hotel provides the rooms with warmer blankets.

                The Gershwin Hotel was clean and the staff was pleasant. My room was in a bit of disrepair, but everything worked well and was clean and comfortable. Quarters in the dormitories are a bit tight, but it was exactly what I expected from a hostel-style room. I felt safe in the area around the hotel and enjoyed being right next to Madison Square Garden!

                The Gershwin is not for people who like to spend a lot of time in the hotel. It is a good value for those who need a clean, comfortable place to sleep at night, but not much money to spend.

                Bed very poor quality,room sparsely furnished,hallways shabby;It was not exactly a bargain,either.Wouldn;t recommend to anyone.

                I loved the staff! Everyone was so very helpful & kind. The decor is great, very modern and artsy. Its in midtown, so cab rides were no more than 8 bucks & theres a train station nearby too.

              • Single
                7.8

                i thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the gershwin. i was attracted to the place by the funky frontage, the ideal location and the promise, from other guests commenting on this website, of an experience that's different from your average hotel chain. i was not disappointed: my room was basic, but big and comfortable (i particularly liked the artwork and the wooden floor), the staff were friendly and helpful, there's a congenial little café with a 'library' that provides a quiet corner to work or ponder and the lounge hosts frequent events in the evenings, not all of which may necessarily be everybody's cup of tea, but the one i went to was exactly the kind of weirdly wonderful gig you'd love to discover in a big city.

                you have to pay to use the wifi in the hotel, which really is no longer acceptable policy for a hotel that purports to be trendy and 'with it'. and the café closes and stops serving food quite early during the week which in a 'city that doesn't sleep' doesn't strictly make sense.

                Good hotel, The staff was very helpful. Good location. Value for money. Easy to check in and out. Charming hotel.

                Only one elevator, which can result in long waiting times (hotel counts 13 floors).The beds have soft mattresses (I prefer a hard mattress). Pretty loud air conditioner, but it didn't keep us from sleeping..

                They turned off the heather on a cold day excusing it was already summer, although it was still the end of April.

                The only good thing about this hotel is birch cafe which is located next door and have the greatest atmosphere and the best coffee in Manhattan.the staff, tho confused and not organized, was nice and welcoming.

                They mixed up my booking and gave me a room that was not similar to my initial booking. after I complained I got a better room. how ever, the rooms were not clean and it took over 15 min to get hot water to shower.
