Very nice hotel and the staff was exceptionally helpful. Darsalle was so nice and spent a lot of time showing me how to find the subway. The room was a little small but the bed was comfortable and the bathroom nice.

Boutique/ quirky styling set in a "Flat Iron" style building from the turn of the century. Small but perfectly formed bar and restaurant. Staff friendly... More

This is a really nice smaller hotel with a distinctive style. The too s were not large but were comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and lots of bars and restaurants close by. You can also hire a bike for free to ride around the city.
