The situation was just perfect. The receptionist might look a bit rude but they change our room immediately when we asked for it. We paid 320$ a night (without taxes) due to the Christmas shopping... This was too much expensive for such a hotel! But once again the emplacement is perfect. If you can avoid the shuttle to JFK do so...

The Wolcott is extremely good value for money. The rooms are great, the staff friendly and attentive and the lobby has an old world charm about it. The best part is its central location to so many iconic tourist highlights. I would stay there again. As a side note ask for a room at the rear of the premises and at a higher floor level to minimise outside noise.

Internet is not free but there is free breakfast. The TVs are a bit old and the cable basic but we weren't there to watch TV. :) This is an old hotel. It didn't seem run-down but it is not state of the art, either. The magnetic keys didn't work for us a coupe times so we needed to get them re-programmed. The second time both of the staff at the front desk got snippy with me when I told them I was annoyed about the issue.

New York city 'blew us away'. Hotel in ideal location - easy access to everything, either on foot or by subway - which we used extensively. Reception staff, while polite and efficient, could smile a little more - like those that attended to our room. Room clean and comfortable but small - not for the claustrophobic. Ask for a no-smoking room - I believe they're bigger. Old and jaded in appearance though it is, we felt it provided adequate comfort for our stay and, given its location, was good value for money.

Great deal. Excellent location. The room was just what we needed for the weekend. I totally recommend this hotel if you're looking for a place to sleep after a day of sight seeing. No unnecessary stuff, clean and a little coffee/tea and muffin for breakfast. It's perfect if you're more interested in the city than in the hotel.

Unica nota eccellente dell'hotel è la sua ubicazione centralissima. Del resto, (a parte la modesta colazione inclusa, cosa che in quasi tutti gli hotel di new york e esclusa dal prezzo) è tutto mediocre: accoglienza quasi inesistente, stanze piccole,maleodoranti e rumorose (causa condizionatori mal funzionanti). Anche il prezzo è modesto ma la prossima volta che tornerò a NY cercherò di meglio. Qualche dollaro in più vale la pena spenderlo.

L'albergo ha soddisfatto in pieno le nostre aspettative: camera a tre letti pulita, spaziosa, silenziosa; personale discreto; ottima posizione, ottimo rapporto qualità'/prezzo. Un po' spartana la prima colazione e la struttura è un po' datata (moquette da "rinfrescare" e impianti dell'aria condizionata rumorosi). Nel complesso comunque da consigliare a chi privilegia pulizia e posizione centrale.

à savoir : les chambres donnant sur la petite cour intérieure sont peu lumineuses mais très calmes, ce qui est un luxe vu l'emplacement de l'hôtel (entre Broadway et la 5ème, à 2 rues de l'Empire State Building). Petit commerce en bas de l'hôtel très pratique pour acheter de l'eau (eau très mauvaise au robinet...), des timbres et diverses petites choses. Petit déjeuner offert (rare dans les hotels de NYC) : café, thé, lait et muffins. Répétitif mais très appréciable ! Il faut juste trouver une petite place le matin pour s'installer car tout cela est servi dans le hall (pas de salle spéciale petit déj). Enfin, à l'entrée, une personne en permanence pour renseigner sur les musées, les attractions et toutes sortes de services... Une bonne adresse... mais environ 200 euros la nuit... en 10 mn à pieds, nous sommes à Times Square, en 3 mn à l'empire state... Le métro est tout près également...

Close to Penn station (convenient for train takers like us!) and fairly easy access to lots of other parts of the city. Not super close to Times Square (approx. 35 mins walking, longer when the streets are very full) but quieter than that area which we appreciated. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go and only took one subway train (from the Statten Island Ferry Terminal). The hotel had a lovely lobby and the muffins for breakfast in the morning were good. The staff at the front desk did leave something to be desired, as none of them were friendly, nor did they smile at any point. The cleaning team were better. In general: nice hotel, good location, could have been a lower price but then it is NY!

Hotel Wolcott is a good place to stay when on a budget. It was clean and the employees were very nice and polite. There are no frills! Small elevators and lobby very dated. Continental breakfast consited of muffins that tasted imitation and coffee no juice if you have children. Also the bathroom was so tiny it was unbelievable. Really your knees almost touch the door and the little sink look like something out of pre-school. But....who comes to New York to stay in the room....so overall it was a good place to lay your head.

Located close to 5th avenue and the empire state building, but few interesting restaurants nearby. OK for friends or couple, but I would not recommend it to families. The rooms were clean enough, but the whole hotel needs renovation. Coffee and muffins in the lobby does not serve as a proper breakfast, but this was indicated on the web. The staff in the reception was not very welcoming, but the hotel has a concierge to help with tourist information and all kinds of bookings. This gave the stay a better overall rating in our opinion.

New York is an extremely expensive city and the Wolcott was a welcome "budget" find. It is happily located in Midtown, three blocks from the Empire State Building, a 5 minute walk to Macy's and the closest subway stop is only a few blocks away. We were in a twin room, which was situated on a corner of the building. Our room was three times the size of our friends who were in a double room, which is why I rated the spaciousness as I did. Although the other rooms were small, they were clean, and really, did we go to New York to sit in our rooms?? NOT!! There are free coffee and muffins in the lobby each morning, and if you don't want that, Starbucks is only a couple of blocks away as are a couple of good delis for breakfast. If I am ever in NYC again, I will stay at the Wolcott -- it was perfect and certainly didn't break the bank.

This hotel is excellent for anyone travelling on a budget. Whilst it is a little old-fashioned, it's beautifully decorated, warm and welcoming without being stuffy, and serves much appreciated muffins and coffee/tea in the mornings! The staff are a little hit-and-miss; some know more (and speak more English) than others, but the location is great and you're unlikely to find more for your money elsewhere in Manhattan.
