Friendly Staff and Peaceful Location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 20, 2015

From W.79th Street subway Station, we walked uptown one block to W.80th street, and we walked west for two blocks to Riverside Drive, to the accommodation we had booked, Riverside Tower Hotel.

We had found this accommodation through www.booking.com

The staff were very friendly at check-in, and because we were earlier than the standard check-in time, the staff stored our luggage for us. They gave us a map of Manhattan, and we walked off to explore the area.

We had asked for a room with a view of the Hudson River when making our booking, and we were granted our request. Our room was on the eleventh floor.

We were in fact given 2 adjoining rooms (for the price of one). The bathroom and shower was in the middle of the two adjoining rooms.

The location was very quiet and pleasant. Riverside Drive has a lovely view of the Hudson River, which separates New York from New Jersey.

It was not luxurious or fancy, but for the price, it was a good deal. It was good for our budget. This part of Manhattan is peaceful and less hectic than Times Square and Broadway.

Many people walk their dogs along Riverside Drive. It is nice to sit on a bench, and watch the sun set over the Hudson River.

There is a cafe on the corner of 80 Riverside Drive and W.80th Street which adjoins the Ground Floor reception.

Directions: nearest subway station is W.79th Street station.

Cheapest Stay

by written on May 26, 2003

From outside, you would have thought you will be stepping into one of those "victorian mini palaces".

Once you are in, it is a cheap and no frill kind of accomodation. Decent heating system during those cold cold night. Clean toilets (most important!!!).

Unique Quality: Walking distance to central parks. 2 minutes walk to the 96th street metro station. A good 45 minutes walk to central square, walking along the broadway. passing greats cafes (serving cheap and huge breakfast) and hog dog stands. Lots of supermarket nearby...

They have great weekly and monthly rates

Directions: Upper Manhattan
