We enjoyed our visit to the Riu at Time Square. Great location. Friendly staff. Rooms were NY size, but clean and comfortable. You're close to all the action. And the breakfast buffet was super convenient. We'd definitely stay again for future visits.

But check in was quite smooth and although our room wasn’t ready, we were able to leave our bags and go off and explore New York.

But check in was quite smooth and although our room wasn’t ready, we were able to leave our bags and go off and explore New York. The room was spotlessly clean and up on the 25th floor, it offered a decent view! Had a decent sleep, so all good. Breakfast was ok, but as it was included in the price I’m not complaining. Overall I’d recommend this hotel for quality, location and price. Read less

Breakfast buffet was also good but expect crowds. Despite the crowds it was very well managed and you didn't wait long in the line for a spot even at peak times. Staff all very kind and helpful. Our second Riu hotel and just as satisfied. Well done again Riu Read less

Hotel is very good I would recommend to anyone to stay over there . Service was really good check in and out was really good and fast. The front desk working really fast and efficient and have helped with everything we had asked for. The only down side was the breakfast as u had to queue up for it without the reason. I think they didn’t have enough staff to clean the tables. About the transfer it’s not really hotel fault but TUI as we book it with them but maybe they could influence on them to hire a better company as we almost missed our flight. Transfer was delayed the driver didn’t know were to take us and he was on phone all the way thru. The women in the hotel as well not great English and she didn’t have clue what she was doing.
