I asked for a high floor room and this was what got. I found the hotel very clean and a good sized bathroom and spacious bedroom, plenty of space.
The hotel was in a good location near to the theatre area and all the other areas like Empire State building, times square and also the metro.
A hotel I would use again and I HAVE already recomended it to friends.

Would certainly stay again. Had taxi from the airport ($75) but on the way back used the airport bus from the port authority terminal ($14 each) and quicker and less hassle.

Arrived around 4pm and were allocated room 1721 on the top floor, it was a queen room as no king rooms available at that time, check in was quick and the receptionist was friendly.
The room had plenty of space to be comfortable in even with all our shopping bags! It was also very clean, lots of towels in the bathroom as well as some toiletries. Bathroom is perfectly adequate (it

The location was excellent just 1 block from times square if we ever return to new york I would definitely book this hotel again.

The hotel is just 1 block from Times Square and within walking distance to Central Park, Empire State, Rockefeller Ctr, the list goes on.
The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful. There was internet access, laundry facilities and a shop in the hotel.
We are hoping to go back next year and will stay in the hotel again.

As is the case when booking hotels after reviews on the internet we were a bit wary of what we would find, but we were more than happy with the Belvedere.
Arrived at 14:00 and checked in straightaway even though actual check-in isn't until 16:00. We were given two rooms, both with two queen size beds, toilet with bath/shower and towels changed daily, fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board, wardrobe, in-room safe and TV. The rooms were more than adequate for our stay and the price paid. It's classed as a budget hotel, but I'd like to find another hotel as comfortable and clean as this in another capital city for this type of cost.
Staff were courteous and helpful when needed, had a couple of problems with the shower and bath, which were fixed within half an hour of reporting them.
Tried the full breakfast once and have to say for value and variety it was well worth it, however there are places to eat all around the hotel, so were spoilt for choice for the 5 days we were there, hence we only tried it once.
Position of hotel is one block from Times Square, there is a tourist office around the corner where you can purchase tickets for the bus tours. Walked up to Central Park which only took 20 minutes, Empire State Building is 20 -25 minutes away, or one stop on the metro and 5 minutes walk. The location is ideal for the short break we were on, where nothing is too far away.
Only slight complaint we had as mentioned in other reviews was the heating, no way to control it and also the 4:30 am symphony of the old clanging pipe work we had each morning (slept through this a couple of days though due to being exhausted after all the sightseeing). Oh, and just make sure that if you do get the doorman to get you a cab to the airport, confirm with the driver he has told him the right one!! Told our driver we wanted JFK when in fact we were flying from Newark.
Would stay here again and hopefully will. After speaking to the receptionist we found out that they have just had a full refurbishment of the reception areas and some of the rooms, they are planning more, and also there is the possibility of a gym and a bar area as well.
Good hotel, great location, well worth a visit!!!
