Room was small but clean. Who needs a big room anyway??? You're only there to sleep - so much to see and do. Close to Theatres, Times Square, transit, restaurants, deli. This was my first time at the Hotel Mayfair but would stay again.

Good value for money and in the heart of NY's theater district. Air conditioning is a bit noisy, mattress a bit old but rooms are clean with a good bathroom. Not much view to the outside but if you just want to sleep there it's a good place.

The location was excellent- our room was clean-and the bathroom was great- spacious and huge shower. The room was cozy, and warm- as the weekend was extremely cold for the last weekend in March 26 and 27, 2011. We stayed in a Queen. The staff was helpful- would stay here again without a doubt-

The first room they assigned was so small there literally was no place to put my luggage. After requesting a larger room, they finally relented and gave a more adequate room. The hotel is very old and historic. It could use some upgrading downstairs. The location for me was excellent for what I wanted to do in NY so I put up with the less than desirable aspects of the hotel.

We were very pleased that we were only staying 1 night. Whilst the hotel is in a superb location the rooms are extremely small, and there is no daylight as the rooms look on to very close proximity walls of the next building. The windows do not fit properly so the noise from the road, together with the unbelievably noisy, inefficient air-conditioning unit makes sleeping exceptionally difficult. The bathroom was clean and the best part about the hotel was the shower.

Double bed just didn't fit into the room, just impossible to open a travel bag with two people in the room. Air conditioner made noises even when disconnected, it echoed the upper room's air coinditioner. Very, very small room, even for a quite small and baggy bed.

Rooms are very small so you can easily get claustrophobic! However the location is very convenient, I was traveling alone and only for few days and it was still a good choice for me. For longer epriod I would go in a different place, but for couple of days, just to enjoy NY is a good rate hotel.

I enjoyed my stay very much - the staff was as polite as anyone could have, the rooms and the linen were clean and the location was superb (49th st. between Broadway and the 8th Av.). My only problem was that it cost a lot, an average of 190$ per night and to that taxes were added and they added a lot (an average of 40-50$ a night), so my initial estimate was quite mistaken.

It was not a first time I found my hotel with the help of Venere. As usual, it was successful. The hotel was not new at all, but very clean. The room is not big, but with enouph space. Perfect location near Times square. Very little noise in the room. I spent a week in the hotel with my wife, and we found this hotel good for its price. What was wrong? Very ald furnuture, doors, windows, airconditioner that worked poorly and computer that was in the room, as promised, but didn't work at all.

My wife and I loved to stay very close of the Manhattan heart. The hotel has an amazed location (its only walk until the corner to see the lights of Time Square). The room is small but very comfortable and renovated. Cleanliness and quality of service provided were the key words that Mayfair hotel has a lot. I really recommend this hotel and sincerely: - we'll be back!

Unbelievably good location just off Times Square, and a good bargain for NYC prices. There is some construction going on, and one can only hope that this will include a facelift on the generally dowdy condition of things. It's not bad, just in need of some renovation. All in all, for a relatively clean, quiet and cheap place to sleep in a great tourist location, this is the ticket.

For NYC, this is not too bad of a price, though, of course, you get what you pay for. The rooms are tiny, the window faced the airshaft, the tv was half broken and the floor sloped along with the bed making sleeping a very interesting endeavor. Aside from that, it was clean, the bathroom was in good order, and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. If you're on a budget and don't plan to hang out in your room all day, this is really a pretty good deal.

In all our years using Venere to select hotels this is the first time that we were very disappointed with a hotel. The staff were of no help at all, the place was tiny, we book and paid for a deluxe room and no way was what we were given a deluxe room. The whole hotel was in a bad way for decorating - there were cleaners around everyday - but the hotel was very shabby. The in-room safe was not working and it was 3 - 4 days before anyone came back to us on this (it could not be fixed). Our valuables were not safe! We would NOT RECOMMEND this hotel to anyone. We choose it for it's price and location and were very, very disappointed with it. We did not allow it to ruin our stay in New York which was excellent.

Honestly, I was so disappointed in this hotel. The location was great the rest was awful. The bed was comfy and the sheets were clean. The room had an iron, small hairdryer, magnifying mirror and airconditioning but it was so small. The stairs and hallway had not been vacuumed for ages. The manager needs some hospitality skills, and they charged $8 to store your luggage for an hour while you wait for your pick up. All in all I felt like I was ripped off. The photos on the website and the brochures must have been done 10 years ago. I would NEVER go back.

De ubicación excelente, a una calle del Times Squares (no me lo creía, pero es evrdad). Una calle al metro (subiendo a la 50) en frente un teatro donde pasan obras de Broadway. por la otra esquina un lugar donde puedes comprar comida sana para desayunar (es más barato y mejor que en el propio Times Square donde puedes encontarr desde perritos, hasta restaurantes). En la habitación, el baño era casi más grande que la habitación. Dos personas estábamos bien. Hay que recordar que las habitaciones en NY son más pequeñas que las de España al final viajas allí es para estar en la calle e ir allí sólo a dormir. Si lo quieres céntrico, este es el lugar. Si quieres atención, pues no sabría decirte porque yo no pregunté nada, ya que tenía mis guías y mis cosas.

Public areas and restaurant have been under renovation during our stay so it was not easy to find the typical ambiance anounced. The rooms are anounced as already renoveted but some details (poor silicon seals in the bath room ...) are signs of economically orientated  maintenance. Despite triple-glass windows the street noise during the nigth (we had room 404)is uncomfortable.                All advantages related to the ideal hotel location are compensating the (partly temporary) inconveniants

Rooms are tiny but clean and nicely appointed. There is free DSL hook-up in every room. Theatre district location is great, and hotel is surprisingly quiet for its location. There is no bar or restaurant, but the hotel is fine for a very economical visit to NYC where you really only need your room for sleeping and doing e:mail.

Rooms are tiny and basic but adequate. Staff were friendly and helpful but refused to take payment upfront (in cash) and insisted on swiping my card for security??? all monies were returned to my account on return to the UK. Excellent location, could not have been better. Is 5 steps away from Times Square but rooms are fairly quiet. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a base to explore New York and is not bothered about the lack of room space.

I love this hotel. The rooms are definitely tiny but I travel alone and they're plenty big enough for me. The rooms are clean and the bed is incredibly comfortable. The building is old but I think it's charming and I'll always come here as long as the rooms are available. Special pluses for me is the Cyber Cafe (almost next door) a lovely old church right across the street, gourmet grocery on the corner and the subway only minutes away.
