"Average hotel in a fab location"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

We stayed in the WJ Hotel for four nights. PROS: Location was amazing, so central. Really close to Times Square, Broadway and subway stops. Friendly staff. Free wifi. Wifi was down one day but they fixed it quite quickly. So cheap compared to other hotels. CONS: The street that the hotel was on seemed quite rough. The room was really tiny and had no view, barely room to turn around in the bathroom. We were really happy with what we got for the price we paid and the central location.

The hotel was really easy to find from the subway using google maps. We had a very lovely welcome to the hotel, the staff were super friendly and helpful. Our room was quite small and we had no views, it was a dull room and it was not particulary modern, but it was one of the cheapest hotels we could find in Manhattan so we were not expecting the Ritz. We were fairly comfortable, the twin double beds were comfortable and the bathroom was quite modern and clean. There was a good size TV in the room but the hotel lacked in other facilities. The location of this hotel is great if you wish to be near Times Square and it is also walking distance to many other tourist spots. There are pleny of places to eat nearby as well as fast food options, which we used for breakfast. As a first time visitor to NY the location was great for getting as much sightseeing as possible done in a few days. The hotel offers luggage storage and we felt safe leaving this here with their ticket system.

"A Great Convenient Inexpensive place in NYC"

I've stayed here a couple of times, and I want to give the place a good review because I think it deserves it! It's in a great location (great nearby bars and restaurants, theatres a block away, subway is under two blocks-what else do you want?) The price is absolutely fantastic (most hotel tack on an "amenities" charge sneakily before you book--this place does not) so the price you see is the price you get. You will not find a better hotel for the price in NYC, in my opinion. The rooms are very small--I know that! No big deal--I know it's small when I book it. The rooms are nicely and fully furnished--spotlessly clean--linens are better than average--Big-screen TV has all the channels. Staff (desk and housekeeping) was delightful and helpful. The halls and elevator are dated and show it--who cares? I'm not sleeping in the halls or elevator! There's a restaurant in the hotel--have not tried it---but one of the best Italian places is directly across the street. Cannot compliment this place enough for quality and value.

I cannot stress this enough, the location of this hotel is amazing!! Less then 2 minutes to the subway, supermarket/pharmacy, broadway, restaurants etc. The staff were more then willing to help us by giving directions more then once and even went and got a taxi for us when it was time to leave. The room was good, a little on the small side but seeing as we weren't spending the whole day there it didn't matter. The room was extremely clean and couldn't fault the bathroom. Will be staying here again !!!

Place needs some serious TLC but has a great location and friendly staff. I got a "petite" room and even on those terms it was tiny however the worst was the bed, it was a sort of block based with a rock hard matress on top with old sheets. Curtains didn´t close well so lots of lights coming in, old carpets everywhere. There was a safe, TV with cable and enough channels, clean bathroom Really old elevator.
