Brand new Hotel, warmly welcomed by real nice staff - super friendly, super competent. Big room with big bed, most of the time very quiet. Everything was very clean, daily room service - special thanks for that! Nice bathroom, nice breakfast - and big thanks to the ladies who run the kitchen: hot coffee, fine eggs, fresh fruit from 6:30 AM on - perfect for jet-laggers.
Hotel is 3 minutes walk from 167 St / River Avenue / Southampton Bronx - always felt safe on my ways, even late at night, as solo traveller.
Conclusion: perfect, inexpensive stay in NYC (7 nights) with breakfast, run by nice people
