            the staff was kind, the air conditioning was much appreciated, and we're glad they kept our luggage while we explored for the day.

            that the bathroom was down the hall.

            Air conditioner in room was great seeing that it was very hot over the long weekend, very convienent location, bed was comfortable and room was clean

            no lounge,no sit down bar or resturant in hotel,no toliet in our room

            Riverside is one of the cheapest hotel in N-Y. The location near the subway station :)

            The noise of other customers, The floor of my room smelt pee pee!!! I have some bugs in the room and the shared bathroom.

          • Single
            7.8

            The room was small but it had a sink, fridge, TV, closet and single bed. The bathrooms (shower in bathtub, sink and toilet) were never busy...3 bathrooms to14 rooms. All in all it was an excellent value and 'safe' for a single person visiting New York City. Near Riverside path to downtown.

          • Single
            5.4

            it is close to some fast foods shops and also to Subway ST 72 which has express Subway to St 42 Time Square.

            Sharing Bath, Small Bath..

          • Single
            3.2

            Nothing

            The room extremely dirty. I also had to buy my own bed sheets and blanket as the ones provided were extermly dirty and full of bedbugs. Please do yourself a favor and search for another hotel!!!

            Showers - out in hall, were strong, and moderately clean, Staff friendly

            We were not told that there were no toilets or showers in room

            Very well priced availble at the a last minute room was fine , ac worked tv

            The bathroom in the hall really was not usable , needed fixing / repair -was really not oublic worthy.

          • Couple
            7.0

            The location is perfect for an hotel like this one.

            The steam in rooms wasn't turned on and the temperature was very cold during a few nights. We were obliged to ask for a small portative steam in order to have an acceptable temperature in room. The cleanliness of common rooms was not very good.

          • Couple
            2.4

            Nothing, please avoid this place like the plague, it really put a bad start to our stay.

            This is not a hotel, it is a hovel.

          • Couple
            2.8

            not good think!!!!

            the hotel is disaster I had a mouse in my room,hotel is not clean,old anr really bad.Description on internet and pictures is lay.You should take away from your internet side.

          • Single
            4.2

            Nothing, this place was horrible. The staff was friendly, at least.

            I was afraid to spend the night here. The room was depressing and I was immediately disgusted. Shared bathrooms have nothing in them. The door across the hall from me had been sealed by the city as a crime scene and the door was smashed in. I left the hotel and found another option for sleeping as soon as I saw this.

          • Single
            4.2

            a room and a bed. a tv with a decent picture. no bedbugs. clean room, I think. staff was cute, accessible and helpful.

            the bed was sagging in the middle so I sank into it. the room's apperance was minimalist. the shower was worse than camping...dirty water pooled above my ankles. the plumbing and general appearance were primeval.

          • Couple
            5.4

            The hotel is in a beautiful part of the city.

            I didn't appreciate the blatant stain on my towels or the dead cockroach on my pillow.

          • Group of friends
            2.8

            I like that hotel riverside studio was close to everything.

            I didn't expect the hotel to be that dirty. Cockroaches in our bathroom?! Totally uncalled for!
