Kitano New York
Ranked #96 of 471 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 June 2012

In the City that Never Sleeps, the Kitano is as good a place to get settled in as any. The rooms are on the small side, but all well-appointed. This is the kind of hotel that is well kept-up but does not make any extra effort to be lavish. That said, there's lots of wood and lots of pillows. The ambiance is one of serenity even in the middle of bustling midtown Manhattan (although it is much more chill in the Murray Hill area than a few blocks off to the west in the Times Square area). The hotel is impeccably clean, inside and out, another feature that is not exactly common in a city like New York. All in all, the peace and tranquility of the hotel, not to mention its location, make it well worth a stay.

Room Tip: Rooms that do not face Park Avenue are a little quieter (though you sacrifice views). If you want so...

The staff, amenities, and location continue to make the Kitano one of our favorite quality stays while in New York for business or pleasure. The clean, good sized rooms and well mannered staff make it a joyous and comfortable visit.

Be sure to check out their off season specials and promotions. You will avoid the hectic downtown rush and are very close to Grand Central, 5th Ave, 7th Ave and the theater district.

The Kitano is my first choice hotel in New York. It has to be New York's quietest hotel. Window open and the background roar of traffic is same as other NY Hotels, turn the winder to close the window and SSSHH ! all is silence.
The Staff are very friendly but professional and the facilities are all that you would expect from a top class Hotel
In addition there is Jazz every day with attentive audiences and featuring top class musicians, mainly New York based along with a surprisngly good selection of excellent Japanese Musicians

We just spent 6 nights here and loved it. Couldn't have asked for a better location. We asked for a room with a view of the empire state building and we got it! The room was clean and tidy, the bathroom was brilliant. We stepped out on to the street and had grand central right at the end of the street. We would definitely recommend the Moonstruck diner just round the corner from the hotel. We had breakfast there 3 times and it was brilliant. The staff at the Kitano were friendly, very polite and very helpful. Thanks for a wonderful stay. My only negative would be that there was no free wifi...after NY we stayed at the Super 8 in Vermont which was much much cheaper and came with free wifi, other than that we had no complaints.

Room Tip: We had room 1012 and it had a view of the Empire state building...if you ask they will do their best...
