Verified Reviews of Hotel Wales

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Part of me wants to give a bad review"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
So others won't learn about it and there will always be a room available to me! But it's a great hotel. Clean rooms. No one in our group had any issues with bedbugs. Great showers. The food at the restaurant next door is very good but also very expensive (and slow service). For breakfast you can pick up yogurt and fruit and such at one of the two places on the corner of 92nd Ave. Or, you can walk north about 4 blocks and find a number of places to choose from. The hotel staff were all friendly and extremely helpful. The 6 subway has a stop two blocks east and two blocks north, quite a reasonable distance. The M4 bus, which will take you to the Cloisters (long ride but don't miss it) practically stops at the hotel's doorstep. This is not a fancy hotel. There are no coffee makers in the room. But it's quiet, and clean, with a really good location. There's no ice machine and no vending machines, but the "OK" store on the corner of 92nd is open 24 hours a day. The hotel has found the perfect balance between luxury and keeping costs down.

"A great place to stay in NYC!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I think the location is great. Taxis right outside the door. The 6 Subway is two blocks west (the long blocks) and two blocks north (the short blocks) through a very safe neighborhood. The hotel staff is polite and helpful. The rooms are simple but very clean. The bathroom shower (no tub) is just outstanding. There's a restaurant attached to the hotel, Sara Beth's. The food there is good, but it's very expensive for what it is, and the service is slow. Walk north 3 - 4 blocks (those are the short ones) and you'll have lots of moderately-to-low-priced places to eat. The hotel desk recommends "Three Guys," but there are good places just a little north of there. My daughter and son-in-law had a complaint with their room in that there was a very noisy family next door to them, but they had the option of asking for a different room and did not. I never heard a peep from my neighbors and do not think it's a noisy hotel. Don't miss the view of the city from the rooftop at night. It's spectacular.
