    The location was very good and the adjoining cafe/keebab restaurant was good.

    Attidude of staff to customer issues and simple questions. Lift out of action for two days with no offer of assistance. Cleanliness was border line. AC was poor. Expensive for what it was.

    Superb

    This trip to NY was to take my daughter for her 40th Bday. We arrived very late and was given the last room available. Although clean, it was very small and outdated....very disappointed....not like the pictures! However, the next day we were given a very nice room and the stay was great. Hotel staff very friendly and accomodating. Location is great for shopping and eating. I will return.

    The elevators are a little slow and the water changes from hot to cold without warning.

    Very good

    I liked the location of the hotel. The check- in was quick and straight forward. The room was comfortable and functional. It was relatively quiet (except for screetching sirens one night).

    The receptionist could be more welcoming. Tea or coffee-making facilities would be nice. The restaurant downstairs was busy in the morning and closed in the evening.

    Superb

    The hotel was great...clean and comfortable with decent size rooms

    My only problem with the room we had was the heat was on very high and could not be adjusted.

    Very good

    good room + in suit toilet etc. for reasonable cost comparing to other hotels on the same level. the location is good (walking distance to times square and very close subway stations) it's in the "Korean Way" so i you like Korean food - it's just for you!

    I prefer staying down town. a possibility to have coffe in the room or lobby + free internet would make me feel much better without costing too much to the hotel...

    Fabulous

    I enjoyed my stay at Grand Union Hotel. The service was friendly and helpful and friendly. The room we stayed in was perfect for 4 people and the layout was spacious. Room service ensured we had lots of towels and cleaned our room daily. I really enjoyed my stay.

    I thought there should be free wi-fi in the hotel, that is really the only thing I thought was missing.

    Very good

    The location was excellent. I had some parcels sent there for collection and these were stored for me. They also have a luggage room where you can leave luggage after check out and collect later.

    The bed and pillows were not the most comfortable. This is not a complaint it is factual and a chance you take. We were on a budget so for a hotel at this location and price there has to be some compromise.

    Very good

    Location was very good. Small room was adequate for New York City. Hotel is near subway line and many restaurants, as well as drop off /pick up point for Bolt bus. Staff was friendly.

    Smoking permitted in all rooms. No smoke detectors or sprinklers in rooms. Had to request a smoke alarm (available to guests on request) & received one that was still in its original package.

    Location is perfect as it is important that we spend most of our time within the streets..No need to pay more..Grand Union has the best quality..

    Good

    Very good location, near Madison and 5th Ave. Close to Empire state building, 10-15 min by walk till Times square, just near the metro station. Small, very simple, but clean. Good choise for those who are not planning to sit in the hotel, preferable for young couples. There are several "good for breakfast" cafe nearby (Europa cafe, GiGi).

    No safe in the room. There is a very-very small safe on the reception (free of charge). WiFi only on the reception. Very loud conditioning.

    Very good

    The hotel had a great inexpensive restaurant for breakfast. We had a large clean room. Not much of a view but definitely worth the pricing.

    the bed was extremely hard and needs to be changed. No kleenex in the rooms

    Fabulous

    The hotel was well located and had all the luxuries one would expect for this price. The room was clean, there was a TV, fridge and airco. Two blocks from the empire state building and walking distance from Penn Station makes it ideal for tourists. I recommend this hotel!

    Tony in the Captains Cafe was a great guy. The atmosphere was friendly and the food and service were good. The hotel was small but comfortable and friendly and the rooms well serviced. Well located for the price and handy to walk to many of the central sights.

    Location

    Front of house staff. Level of cleanliness in room, mostly dust related. It was difficult to understand what had been paid for in advance and what was due on arrival. This caused confusion which resulted in the receptionist being very abrupt, rude and demanding. I would certainly not recommend this hotel to anyone.
