It was OK! we were 3 and needed the place to crash at night... if you are going with your family and kids maybe is not the best option, but if you are looking for some place just to sleep and have fun with friends thats OK. the internet is kinda of expensive and only lets you add 2 devices at the same time with the same User... so if you have more than 2 wifi devices youll be pissed about it but you can manage hehe

The location was great. But there was a heating problem in the hotel. Windows were very old and all cold wind making room very cold. The hotel only offer extra blanket for it. The rooms were very small. We realized that we prefer more comfartable room instead the central location.

EXCELLENT location and price allows you to overlook some of the shortcomings with respect to amenities: torn carpet, no bathroom fan, noisy air conditioner, ironing board but no iron, tired looking decor to name a few. The room was adequate. The bathroom was small buy clean. Good view.

Old hotel needs refurbishing, however the cost of room in central location more than compensates for this. Staff mostly courteous & helpful. Although room drab and old furnishings sheets & towels were changed every day if required, reception provided toiletries if required (free). I stayed their in June so the weather was pretty warm, Air con worked but was noisy. Would i recommend this hotel definitely anyone wanting a cheap room located in the Theatre district of Manhatten value for money 10 out of 10

The main advantage of this hotel it's the location. Staying in times square for this price if you are not peeky about confort, small rooms with almost no space for luggage or walking around the beds, strange odors, rickty beds and basins, leeking toilets or moldy bathrooms and poor noise isolation, then this is the place to choose. Also we noticed that the first 3 or 4 floors were recently renovated, we could see it when the lifts stoped for clients, so maybe here these conditions would be a bit better, but how to get rooms on those was information that was not given when booking, and maybe the prices would be different or not available through internet booking?

Our room overall was nice and clean. We asked for a renovated room on the 20th floor (room 2029). The view was OK (on the sign of Madame Tussaud. It has a big walking closet, small bathroom. Rooms are cleaned every second day but you can asked for extra towels and cushions. TV is bit poor because signal fails often. Regarding the "horror" stories on the review sites this Hotel (specially the renovated floors) is good value for money. I would recommend this hotel to friends specially for its brilliant location in downtown NYC. Its a 1 to 2 star hotels with no frills

The hotel location is just perfect. Only a few steps away from the Times Square. Close to subway, 5th - 6th - 7th ave.s. I was able to reach all the importatnt districts by foot. The hotel price was reasonable. Concierge service was satisfaying. But the hotel room was so old. Air conditioning was not effective and making noise a lot. I stayed 3 days. My room was never cleaned or towels changed. The food and beverage shop at the hotel entrance is so expensive and the food is bad. Just buy drinks if you need to.

Hotel Carter is more like a hostel for backpackers than a hotel. However, that doesn't mean that it's all backpackers - far from! The hotel hosts lots of different people from everywhere in the world. It's a good deal for the prize. Really you're only at the hotel during the night for sleep anyway, so it doesn't matter it's a little dirty and worn down. Occasion = Holiday!
