              4.2

              It was near the the subway station and Central Park

              Some of the staff were unhelpful. I think that it could do with decorating, the decor was dark and dingy. Paper was coming away from the wall and paintwork was amateurish. Nothing like the photos on your website.

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              The rooms at Riverside Tower are small but sufficient. I especially enjoyed the quiet during the nights, when you are tired of all the sightseeing and shopping you can get a good night's sleep. In my experience, the area is safe, daytime and nighttime, and the hotel is a clean and safe walk down Broadway from the city centre. Nearby there are shops and pharmacies which are open all night. The staff is very helpful and courteous.

              The standard of cleanliness is a bit lower than what we are usually used to in Europe, but I was satisfied how it all turned out, and the cleaning ladies did a good job.

            • Older travelers
              3.8

              It was too expensive for the quality of the room and its services. I do not recommend this hotel.

            • Single
              3.2

              there was a bed in my room

              Carpet smelled like cat urine, no shampoo or other bath items other than microscopic bar of soap, the towel reminded me of those we had in junior high gym class - thin and like sandpaper, the clerk couldn't cease his cell phone conversation while checking me in.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              Great location for walking access to neighborhood, Central Park, museums; great subway access. Staff was very helpful. We had a wonderful view from our corner room on the 13th floor. Quiet. Bed was very comfortable.

              The hotel was very old. The room was old and very small--we had a suite.

            • Family with children
              6.6

              It is inexpensive and located in a nice quiet neighbourhood right by a bus route. Staff were helpful and they had lots of maps and info. We were able to use buses and the subway with ease but it's also walking distance from Central Park and some nice restaurants. Our rooms were very small but comfortable and we had two rooms with bathroom in between which worked well for us and our teenager. They have a communal lounge with wifi. Rooms higher in the building would have lovely views.

              The rooms were tiny with single beds For two of us to share we had to pull out a camp bed and that completely filled the room. It was actually quite comfortable to sleep on but very low. The decor was shabby. They provided a fridge and microwave but no kettle and no cups so we couldn't make hot drinks. I really missed that. A kettle and cups in the communal lounge would cost little and make a big difference

            • Family with children
              7.0

              The one area of this hotel that was very appealing was its location to everything we were going to do or visit. Since it was just my son and I, it was acceptable. The rooms appeared to be clean and were changed each day. It had free wifi but only down stairs in the lobby area. Staff was very helpful with any questions and directions. It is conveniently located across the street from central park and all that the park offers.

              We stayed in the room only to sleep and were gone most of the day until 11:00 each night. Since the the hotel had no services (food, drinks etc.) this was not a problem. We had two rooms seperate by a very small shower and toilet.I Thought the rooms were small and the beds were a standard twin and with a tv that had local channels which worked fine. Bring anything you will need, shampoo, hair dryer etc. There is nothing in the way of food, drink or any amenities within two blocks so the midnight snack is a real trip.

              Location.

              No wireless in rooms, poor design/quality of rooms. Needs an update

              The staff were excellent and friendly. They did their best to make it a good stay.

              First impressions were not good! The hotel is tired and basic with very small rooms.

              Tiny, tiny, tiny!expensive! I satyed in the tiniest hotel! I don't like riverside tower hotel anymore!

              9.6

              Safe neighborhood, great view, clean, convenient location.

              Very small (though adequate), sometimes long wait for elevator.

            • Family with children
              6.2

              Amazing location with good view.

              Basically starving student level bottom level accomodations. Clean, but tiny noisy rooms. You will save money in a great location but zero frills.

            • Family with children
              5.0

              The rooms were extremely small, as a family of 4 we could not have stayed any longer. Two nights was more then enough if you are out all day and only return to sleep.

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              The service is fine. The rooms, although small, are very clean. The location is, for me, one of the best areas of NYC. The price is quite reasonable.

              Lavatories in rooms have a large medicine cabinet with mirror over sinks. It is near impossible to put your face over the lavatory wash bowl, so the faucet water must be splashed or cupped by hand to the face. Consequently, much water gets splashed on the floor, not into the lavatory. Removal of the medicine cabinet would avoid this problem. The mirror could remain, and a smaller cabinet could be put nearby.
