This is a gem of a place and I’m so glad we found it. It had everything we needed for my family, kitchen, living area, dining room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Would have been great with two bathrooms but I’m being picky!! Location was absolutely OUTSTANDING! Everyone who

If you want to stay close to Times Square and the theatre district, this hotel is a good option. It is half a block from the full-on craziness of Times Square, but our room was amazingly quiet. Outside there would be sirens and hubbub, but inside we couldn't hear a thing. No

What was suppose to be a trip of a lifetime turned into a disappointment. We booked this hotel based on reviews and location. Upon arrival, we found out it was not in direct view of the NYE ball drop like they said. I called twice and was told it was. We booked a penthouse room.

We have stayed in many different places in Manhattan, this is by far the BEST place. Our accommodations were a 1 bedroom apartment, larger than any apartment we have ever stayed in. It was fully equipped with a high end kitchen appliances, a beautiful bathroom, washer/dryer

I was there during the 2014/15 NYE at AKA Times Square and can confirm that the view is from a very small (and inconvenient) angle from the terrace.

We went to whole foods which was a close walk and got most of the things we wanted, but we were just looking for breakfast foods. The whole foods is ok - lots of things were not stocked and they were extremely busy and very expensive! But it worked for us with getting a little bit of cereal, eggs, juice, etc. We used the Walgreens in Times Square for pop, water, and they also have fresh fruit and sandwiches. We noticed that AKA received a lot of deliveries while we were there that week! Wish we would have thought to do use a service such as Fresh Direct or Amazon! Enjoy your stay...Caesar is a wonderful resource and a great guy to talk to. He will point you in the right direction for restaurants and things to do!

Hi, we stayed in the one bedroom suite & we had the rollaway bed in the bedroom. It did fit, was fairly tight in there but it worked for us as our 7yr old daughter wanted to sleep in the same room as us.

"1 Bed room apartments"
"Apartments with BR at back are quieter. Lower floors provide quicker lift access. Wheelchair accessible bathrooms are also available."
"quieter at rear"
"Go with a higher floor to avoid city noise"
"I think the rooms on the back of the building are quieter as don't overlook the road."
