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.

Great place to stay while exploring NYC only a few steps away from Times Square and close to the metro. The room itself was nice and surprisingly quiet although could do with a little TLC but nothing major we stay in a studio with a kitchenette. Staff were friendly and very helpful I would recommend staying here.

The washer/dryer in the room was a blessing and allowed us to travel lightly. AKA Times Square is a gem in a city that can often be difficult and expensive. Read less

The AKA Times Square provided a suite option for our family that I couldn't find with a hotel -and I didn't know the area well enough to comfortably choose an AirBNB. The location was less than a block from Times Square, so far enough away to be able to walk to a less busy corner to catch a cab & avoid the crowds but close enough to walk to any theater, restaurant, museum in the area. The staff was very welcoming & it felt like having an apartment vs. a hotel room. The welcome email we received a few days before our stay was very helpful, as was the option to order a starter pack of groceries. Having a small washer/dryer in our room was incredibly helpful.
