6/10 Good

Stairs only
The bathroom was decent size and clean. Being in Manhattan, the room was very small. If you are overweight, you would only be able to get in the bed on one side. When I sat on the side of the bed by the wall , my knees were very close to the wall , and I'm short. Most important, there is no elevator. We went up 20 stairs per floor, so 40 stairs to go to room 300.

Fine for the price, I guess
This is an odd hotel. It's a post-COVID, no receptionist, no housekeeping situation. The rooms are VERY small - ours was a triple but only one person could move around at a time. The view was of the "courtyard" which consisted of the building's air conditioner system. The neighborhood is fine, nothing too exciting. It's fairly close to 14th St Subway stop which is a pro.
