Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    Included breakfast.

    Untidy location with street and footpaths littered with rubbish.

  • Couple

    Everything! Great location, nice staff, really confortable and clean rooms, good breakfast. As hostels are really expensive in nyc, it's really a good deal to choose this hotel instead.

  • Single

    The kindness of the staff

    small room, slow elevator, poor breakfast

  • Older travelers

    Location was ok as you were about ten minutes walk from Times square, the bus station & train station. Breakfast available every morning.

  • Couple

    Friendly staff.breakfast and WiFi included.

    Train track is just under your window and engine honks are extremely loud. Hotel area is neglected. only one elevator (long wait during morning hours)

  • Single

    Onlky wi-fi access

    The staff, the quality of service, too expensive for the value, poor facilities

  • Group of friends

    fairly well located for time square, clean rooms comfy beds and helpful staff. nice breakfast

    hotel looks pretty rough from outside rooms small fairly basic accommodation

  • Single

    Good breakfast.

    The nearest subway station is quite far away. Even Taxis are not easily available on 38th street. One needs to walk to either 10th Av. or 9th Av. to get a taxi.

  • Single

    Its nearness to the Zaviet Convention center, its hardly 50 meters away.

    Connectivity with the rest of the city and the breakfast did not have many choices

  • Single

    Excellent Location. Just 5 mins. walking to Javits Convention Center and 20 mins. walking to Times Square. Small Room but clean and comfortable.

    Everything was OK for me. Maybe improve breakfast. Everyday same breakfast, nothing different to choose.

  • Single

    Helping & caring staff. Excellent outside view from the room.

    Everything was excellent about the Best Western Convention Center.

  • Group of friends

    It is located within walking distance to Times Square, pretty good location. Staffs are friendly, and the room is clean which is the most important thing to me.

  • Group of friends

    A minutes walk to Convention Center. That's it.

    In every aspects, inferior to the standard hotel. FedEx pick up service must be done by myself, for example. No coffee in daytime and night. No refregerator in room. Noisy at night due to 24 hour open taxi repair shop just in front of hotel.

  • Older travelers

    The staff is unfriendly, the rooms are very small and not clean, there is a lot of noise from the garage/body repair/ taxi service, next door. The location is in an area dangerous at night. The hotel has nothing to do with Best Western hotels chain, is just a very bad franchise. It's the worst hotel i have ever been. I would suggest to Best Western to cancel this franchise, otherwise they will ruin their image.

  • Single

    The location is good. 15 minutes walk from Times Square and from Penn station. Breakfast was ok. The room was small but clean and WiFi worked anywhere in the hotel

    The hotel only has one elevator (which was out of order when I checked in..).The breakfast room is too small and you have to eat while you are standing
