Don't make a reservation here. We had a reservation at this hotel a while ago, but when we went to the hotel to stay, they sent us to another hotel "due to an unexpected trouble". In the end, both the hotel and the other hotel that we actually stayed charged on my card. So, the card was doubly charged. I...

I booked a room with the Royal Park Hotel & Hostel through Booking.com (which I also don’t recommend) and once I realized it would be a room with a shared bathroom I cancelled literally within one minute of making the reservation and the Royal Park Hotel & Hostel charged me for a night. I called and the hotel management refused...

It's a decent hostel. I was there for a week in November 2011 with 2 friends - we had a great room with 2 doubles and upgraded to ensuite when we arrived. For the price, it was good. Don't expect 5 star treatment because this is a hotel for people on a budget. It was clean, staff were friendly, and...

Stayed in their best room (Superior Double Queen Ensuite) which is off the noisy main corridor / reception and waiting area. Like others highlighted, room standards are below what you gather from images, and costs are not ‘value for money’. Our room was supposed to have a TV / cable channels. We did not manage to switch the TV on,...

Not as pictured. A lot of money compared with other local small hotels. Tv, heat didn't work, had to use space heater. No working smoke detector in the room and no linens left. Had to ask for all of the above. Would never stay here again.

Stayed here 2 nights in October, rooms look nothing like website. Helpful front desk. Bathrooms were basic but worked. Ultimately it is a quiet place and works as a base if you plab on being out all day and night.

I booked a private room in this hotel and I got a newly refurbished one, which was lovely.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
