Fabulous stay. Prime location. Two blocks from Times Square. Cheap compared to many other central locations in NY. Good service. Clean room. Would recommend this hotel. If there was anything to comment it may have been that the walls weren't that thick, so if you were jet lagged and having a snooze you might be awoken by people in the hallway. Minor issue though.

hotel très bien situé pour visiter NY; accueil très sympa. Les chambres et salles de bains sont agréablement décorées et de manière moderne mais sont vraiment petites; mais lorsqu'on veut surtout visiter NY, c'est suffisant et la très bonne situation de l'hôtel prend le dessus. Je reviendrai volontiers au WJ hotel et je le recommanderais à des amis.

La camera più piccola che abbia mai visto! Personale maleducato e non disponibile

I loved the bathroom, it was clean spacious, with a great shower. The bedroom itself would have been great if only it had been bigger. we found it incredibly difficult to manoeuvre around our suitcases as there was no where for us to store them.

The Washington Jefferson was a great place to stay for our first trip to NYC as it was so central. We stayed in a standard double. The room was very hot so we requested to have heating turned off and we didn't need it back on for the rest of the week! The rooms are small but clean and adequate. Bathroom was very nice and so were the staff. Would reccommend this hotel to couples/ singles.

The location was excellent! We stayed 4 night and although we only needed a place to sleep it was still lovely! The satff were always helpful from telling us about bars, clubs, restaurants, taxies, subways etc!! Couldn't have been more helpful! Definatly stay again. Our twin room was pretty small but very clean. Location was a central perfect for everything! The subway was at the end of the block. Amazing restaurant called Thalia (Orange writing on the sign)....orger the duck! I'm still craving it. Hotel also has some permenant guest who were also very friendly! Much better and friendly service than with some larger hotels, you get to know the staff and they get to know you.

It's really well located, only 10-15 minutes walking away from The Mall. It has a Pharmacy just around the corner open 24h a day so it helps a lot for you to grab something to eat or drink very economical. The rooms are good but i believe they shpuld review their heating system and windows isolation because we had some issues and also the bathroom wasn't very spacious. But in general the hotel facilities and rooms space are good, service is ok and adjusted well the quoted price. Definitely more a 3-star than a 4-star but i would stay here again without any consideration. And beware of city taxes on the total amount (that Venere warns in advance).

The hotel is in a perfect position in Manathan, just few steps from Time square and metro entrance. Our hotel room was very little (not even french are like this), but with the essential and clean. Welcoming and quality of services... just perfect. If you do not want to spend too much and you want the quality, I can recommend you this hotel in "Hell's Kitchen"!
