I had another hotel booked when I found AKA and called to ask a few questions. I was surprised when I reached an actual human after a few rings. Liz was extremely helpful and patient with my questions. Because of this I cancelled my other reservation and booked with AKA.

I had another hotel booked when I found AKA and called to ask a few questions. I was surprised when I reached an actual human after a few rings. Liz was extremely helpful and patient with my questions. Because of this I cancelled my other reservation and booked with AKA. It's a block off of Times Square so super walkable to tour pick up/drop off spots, shows, restaurants, etc. I can't say enough about the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. They are very accessible via text, put away the groceries and wine we ordered prior to our arrival and ordered a car service for us to get to the airport. I traveled with a high school girlfriend and the studio with office was a perfect size for us. We ordered a rollaway bed for the office and it worked out really well. There is a ton of closet space and having a washer/dryer were great. The shower was nice and a bonus were the Aveda products they provided. I would stay again and have already recommended it to people traveling to NYC. Thank you all for everything! Read less

I spent with my family last Xmas and New Year´s eve in NYC and we stayed in an AKA´s apartment, Times Square. I would say that the size of the apartment was really good, two bedrooms and a lot of space in the kitchen and living room, the only problem was that they dont have apartments with two bathrooms, and for a party of five that could be an issue. However, the staff was very kind and facilities in general were great. The location is perfect. For those who want to spend the New Year´s eve in NYC is perfect because the building is around the corner of Times Square and it has a space in the top with excellents views to TS. Read less

Already the 4th time I spent a couple of days. Unfortunately they oblige you to book at least for 7 days. Spacious rooms with kitchen at a fair price, room (street view) unfortunately too noisy. Housekeeping just once in a week, very poor service

We've stayed at two AKA locations and would choose this brand anytime, going forward. Am in Philadelphia now and annoyed I didn't realise there was one here! I walk past it jealously every day! If you don't like the fuss of daily housekeeping, this is for you.

Best location for tourist, you can do laundry and cooking in your unit, very efficient. Very spacious if you bring family. While you here, you can order Amazon Fresh, things from Amazon. They also allowed you to order grabfood/Doordash, etc. Staffs are friendly.
