    Great location, some rooms are better than the other. Old a/c. Bathroom is ok! Again, the great location right in front of madison square garden makes this hotel perfect!

    People exaggerate so much! You get what you pay for. Cheapest place in Manhattan, perfect location! My second time here and I would come again! Have a cheesecake at Lindy's!

    Pennsylvania 6-5000! The location is amazing, of course, but you have got to love the history in this place. If you are a picky pants and want to stay somewhere fancy, look elsewhere.

    Good value NYC Hotel. Plenty of scare mongering reviews here, if you want a modern pristine Hotel Room, book into the Trump. One day they'll refurb this hotel and you won't be able to afford it.

    Doesn't get better than staying across the street from Penn station. I'm not picky with my overnight stays and this place is tidy and tends to have great deals for rooms on discount websites.

    It's all right.But There's no fridge. Instead of this I can not close the window in proper way! It's is a 3cm hole! -10 C outside! Thank you, Penn! You solved the problem of food-keeping, Room 1405A

    Nice view of the Empire State Bldg. from our room. Directly across from Madison Square Garden & Penn Station. Big room with not much furniture. Closet had no hangers for shirts or coats.

    Very old and grimey hotel with few amenities, but good nightly rate and very convenient location. Many sites within walking distance, and the subway and train are across the street.

    Might not be the most beautiful hotel in new york but has a great location, just in front of Penn Station, and 10 minuts walk to Time Square....

    This is the perfect hotel for undercover moves among spoiled tourists from the Midwest. Get a room in the back of the building above the tenth floor. Quiet!

    I stayed here after losing power post Hurricane Sandy. I booked through bringfido.com. Get the Penn 5000 club room. You get a fridge and 1 Mbps internet and continental breakfast.

    Centrally located across the street from Madison Square Garden, I got a reasonable room rate less than $200 a day without a reservation. It is the centrally located and the concierge is knowledgeable Read more

    They confused everything so we (3 girls) lived in 20-meters room, I even slept on a camp-bed though I paid the full price. We didn't have any free part of the floor to step on, we walked on the beds.

    I agree with all. New tip: the gym is on mysterious 19th floor. Get off at 18, take sketchy stairs. Then find one of the crappiest gyms. The elliptical must be older than me!

    The Statler Grille will give you 20% off your order if you show your room key. You can also get your drinks to go.

    Spacious and well located but worn down. The furniture is from Goodwill and a step-up from the YMCA. It's cheap, clean and roomie though.

    If you know what you're getting into can be a great deal for midtown. Exp in 5000 club have had good luck getting a clean working room. Not a NYC 400/night hotel by any means.

    The official hotel of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Definitely the "it" place to see the WHOSE WHO of Dogdom during the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Feb. 13 & 14th.

    Desk staff weren't the friendliest, but room was clean enough -- nothing fancy, but acceptable for less than $200 a night, and great location. You could pay similar for hostel w/shared bath on UWS.

    The rooms are SO small, and I agree with the other tips... Definitely don't let the beautiful lobby and doorman fool you, it's FAR from a 5 star hotel.

    Highest floors must be most new than others... And, back rooms from 8th floor or more, you've the Empire State Building' view...

    The hotel is good for just having a place to stay. There is no wi-fi and the Internet lounge ducks. It's expensive and the network is very slow so it's a scam job to take your money.

    Very busy lobby. You pay $40 upfront if you want to check in earlier than 3:00PM. I feel it's a highway robbery for tourists esp if you travelled more than 12hrs and get here.

    Try check in before check in time the lines are just massive. Bring ear plugs you can hear everything in your rooms. Lock latch house keeping just randomly walks in all the time!!

    Great location, fair hotel considering the price. It opened its doors in the early 1900, and it shows it. In desperate need of refurbishing. But then Im sure they'll bump the price

    More a youthhostel than a hotel.. Outdated and not very clean. No breakfast. But hey, the price is good, and you're only here to sleep.. Rest of the time you should spend outside and enjoy the B.A...

    Cleanliness is a must in this hotel. They don't prop up ur pillows or change linens.

    In 1929, Mexican revolutionaries holed up here. In case of spies, they blasted “serenades and nocturnes played by a stringed trio” over a “battery of radios.” Read more

    Room they gave us was bad. It was advertised as newly renovated thru Booking.com but they said this was what we paid for. Carpet needs change. Need more lighting inside room. Upkeep needs improvement

    There is always a long line at check in. Be prepared to stand in line for a long time in the lobby when you arrive. It's historic, not efficient .

    Price is nice, but bathroom isn't the greatest. But the higher you go up the better the view outside your room

    Cheap and well placed. Otherwise, 2 star rooms, small bathrooms, incredibly long lines checking in everytime.

    Room 299 is particularly sad, we got placed there in our first night although we'd paid for and were therefore expecting a double. 299 is a dark and dingy twin.

    Looks like you are on the movie The Shining! A horror movie. The best thing is that you are close to the Madison Square Garden.

    Kinda grody. There's a reason it's listed as 2.5 stars. The beds are rock hard and even the lobby is a bit shady, but a bed is a bed

    Great location! Bad staff! Me being in crutches this trip, I asked 4 room close to the elevators. Woman @ desk says "my job is to check you in, check you out, and take your $!" (still have 2 walk far)

    My ex-girlfriend would have thought this place was filthy. I think it's fine. Probably why we're no longer together, ha. Convenient to everything & good people watching. No wait on Saturday.

    New Yorkers know to Tell tourists to avoid this hotel. Even the seminars that are here are usually shady. Anyway why would you want to stay in midtown?

    Insist on room 1799 or another corner room. They are handicapped rooms and recently remodeled. Decent, clean room with a great view.

    Cheap but you get what you pay for. Ask for a room away from the elevators and not too high, as you may prefer to walk down.

    This could be the best hotel in the city, but their staff is tremendously rude, they want to charge you for everything. They treat you as a thief. But if you only sleep there, then it's okay
