Whilst there are definitely some pluses to staying here, overall I don't feel it was value for money.

Whilst there are definitely some pluses to staying here, overall I don't feel it was value for money. On the plus side, the hotel was very quiet, surprising when you are right in the heart of Times Square. The second big plus is location, literally steps to the action. Beds were also comfy, and the room was clean. On the negative, air con did not work. Despite always being on, room temp never went below mid 70's. i would not want to stay here in the heat of the Summer. Our room looked out onto buildings and other windows so impossible to see what the weather was. Felt very like we were in a big white box, soul less. The 2 bed apartment was very spacious but only one tiny bathroom, Although fittings and fixtures were in good taste and modern, there were definite signs of age, and wear and tear. We went to try the rooftop bar one night but there was noone to to be seen so we skipped it and went for somewhere with atmosphere (and service) Overall, although the location was good, Times Square is literally teeming with hotels, so I would not return.

This was the perfect location to be based for access to all the top sightseeing venues. Staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The apartments are very clean and have everything you could need. Nothing was too much trouble and we would definately use them again

I would highly recommend the AKa Times Square for your next NYC trip! Great location, comfortable residential style room with a separate living area and bathroom and great staff. Complimentary coffee and tea on the terrace is always a bonus. I can't wait to try the other AKA properties.

Excellent location, spacious rooms... Outside of the heating system and TV dishes... Also a great choice for the lounge! For families or business a very good choice just on the side of Times Square. Beware, no breakfast but often a kitchen... Not a bad option especially with coffee served upstairs. We shall be back

This is our 3rd stay here. We’ve also stayed AKA Central Park and AJA Washington. We’re 60s/70s. We value space and convenience. There is heaps of both at AKATimes Square. Just one block from the craziness but quiet. Full range of services including in room washing machine and dryer - worth it’s weight in gold after 2 weeks on the road. Yes… Read more

Just one block from the craziness but quiet. Full range of services including in room washing machine and dryer - worth it’s weight in gold after 2 weeks on the road. Yes there’s no restaurant on site, but Cafe Un Deux Trois is next door, and it’s great, and there’s a convenience store across the road. There’s a great Lounge with rooftop views. Housekeeping was great (not daily but more than enough) and front office staff we lovely. We recommend this place very highly. The negative reviews are way outside our experience. Read less
