Great location Small room but spotless and very modern! I would recommend it and would return myself. Staff weren't the friendliest and our room wasn't ready on arrival but these are my only negatives. A

I wasn't sure what to expect when we booked this, but it ended up being quite nice. We needed a big space but didn't want to go the AirB&B route. Enter this hotel, with "family rooms," kind of one room divided into two. But it was a good size (we had three adults and three children and it didn't feel...

Rooms are small, but clean . Location is big plus point Avoid restaurant, staff at restaurant is very rude. Breakfast is also very ordinary, better walk toward Time Square where many better options available

We stayed here 3 nights. I've read lots of these reviews, and have to say, our stay was great. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was clean, and yes they're very small rooms, but it's mid town New York, who wants to be in a hotel room? I've stayed in many hotels in many countries, and these are the pluses...

Location: Even though it is mere minutes away from Times Square, it was very quiet. Area felt safe. Lots of fun bars, restaurants, shopping, touristy things to do. The nearest metro was only a couple of blocks away. Room 310: faces another bldg. Clean. Small as expected. Bathroom was nice and had shampoo, hairdryer, basic needs. The room itself is...

I stayed here two times this year. Once with a large group and then with my mom. It is right in the heart of times square which was fun. the staff was incredibly helpful. we had an issue with our room and they changed the room immediately. Not all rooms are the same I guess. We didn't have the hotel...

Firstly, the reason I've given this review an average is because the location is key. 1 minute walk into the heart of times square and for this key location the price was good. That's all the positives I can really think of! We arrived at 2130 to be told our room wasn't ready.... which is absolutely silly at that time...

The Gallivant is a modest hotel close to many of New York's iconic sites, the subway and other forms of transport. It is near the theatre precinct and Times Square. Being so close means that it is noisy so ask for a room higher than the second floor. The rooms are on the small side but the service is good...

Arriving late at the Gallivant ( 2am UK time ) we checked in and went to our room. Very disappointed that we had been allocated a double room instead of the twin that was booked long before. Hiked back to reception with our luggage and finally got twin room.we spent our first day exploring and did Central Park, had a...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
