      Historical Traveler Reviews Da Vinci Hotel New York City

      Good value for the money and convenient location

      from

      I travel several times a year on business and get to stay in extremely nice 4 or 5 star hotels. The Da Vinci Hotel is clearly not one of these hotels, but it doesn't pretend to be. It is what it is -- a clean, safe, inexpensive (for New York), no-frills hotel in a GREAT location to see Broadway (and off-Broadway) shows and tour New York City sites. My wife and I stayed for 4 nights while we went to Broadway shows each night and toured the city during the day. The hotel room was just a place to clean up for shows and sleep. You don't need anything fancy or luxurious to do that. If you want see New York and not go broke doing it, this is a great deal. We were able to see 4 Broadway shows because we didn't spend $300 a night on a hotel room. I think the people who have complained are just a little spoiled. We would stay there again.

      Nightmare!

      from

      NIGHTMARE! Our experience at the Da Vinci sent us out onto the street the next morning in the pouring rain, desperately looking for a new hotel. The room was in dire need of cleaning ... oh, just call it filthy. Cigarette burns everywhere! After surviving the night, we discovered there was no hot water or water pressure for a morning shower. When management finally responded, it was too little, too late. We announced we were checking out, and they demanded payment for two nights. We countered that we could dispute the payment for the night of misery with our credit card company, and they backed off. Shut it down!

      Not the worst hotel but not very good either

      from

      The staff was not rude but did lack the friendliness that you would expect from any establishment. The room I stayed in had carpet worn down to the plastic in multiple areas. The bathroom lacked any place to set toiletries down. The power would not stay on in our room, though the maint. staff responded very quickly to the problem and resolved it.

      the decor was horrible (to include paintings that would inspire Rip Torn to feel blue). The heater in our room was very loud ( the elevator as well) all hours of the night. The restaurant downstairs was beautiful and the staff was good..however the cuisine was not woth the $$. My ravioli tasted like it was canned and was hard (the sauce was good though. The hotel was OK overall but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless you really just needed a room with a stained and dirty bed spread

      Da Vinci--a taste of Europe

      from

      Great location, room was small but OK. Bathroom could have used a flat surface to put toiletries. Bathroom nicely remodeled in granite. Pipes (steam radiator heat) were noisy. It was sometimes necessary to use air conditioning to counteract the heat! Staff was pleasant. It was a trick to find the "sweet spot" for the hot water in the shower. Continental Breakfast had European hard rolls. McDonald's is next door and Al's Soup Kitchen International (inspiration for Seinfeld's Soup Nazi) is a block away. I would stay again if the price was right for a short stay.

      Too Noisy

      from

      Having just come back from a 3 night stay at this Hotel I would like to add my comments. Very clean, friendly staff, good location. The only problem was the small room for 3 adults and very very noisy pipe's.

      unable to turn off heating so we had very sleep for 3 night's. The room was so hot and only had a small window

      Ideal location

      from

      Ideal location for a short stay in New york, staff friendly, hotel clean, restaurant very good, only problems no coffee maker in our room and as it went cold the heating did not appear to work, but we had a hreat time

      Great hotel!

      from

      We stayed at teh Da Vinci Hotel in June for three nights and I must say: very good value for money considering the excellent location (walking distance of central park and times square) and the complementary breakfast. That saved us a lot of money each day. One problem: we had practically no hot water for two days. The staff tried to fix it for us and later gave us a discount on our rooms, but we don't believe the problem was fixed that well, it seemed like the capacity of the heater was not large enough for the complete hotel.

      After two days, the problem was fixed though. If you have hot water, it's the best value for money hotel in NYC!

      Stay far far away

      from

      I am writing to save any others the horrors of this hotel. I was relying heavily on the reviews of others here who called it a good clean hotel...... NOT SO!!! Let's forget the surly staff upon check in who informed us of a $20 early check in fee.. (others at the hotel later were much nicer however).. How about the wrinkled sheets that looked like at least a week of other guests had slept in them, the towels with holes..but let's get to the reason I checked out at 2 am in the morning... a cockroach in my bed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Did not honor confirmation

      from

      I have traveled all over the world with hotel confirmations in hand. I have never had a problem until encountering the Da Vinci Hotel. I was told upon arrival that they could not honor my confirmation (which I had in hand--numbered and priced)and I wasw informed that they had tried, but failed, to book me elsewhere. The manager was not on site to handle my problem and merely spoke to me via cell phone to basically say, "tough luck." The hotel did not make any attempt to rectify the situation.

      Good, clean hotel

      from

      Two girl friends and I stayed at the Da Vinci hotel. The location was excellent! It's on a quiet street off of Broadway. It's within walking distance from Times Square, theater distict, and the Hard Rock Cafe!!

      The only negative thing I can think of is that our toilet got clogged - old plumbing. However, someone came --literally --within two mintues to fix it. The decorations were nice, marble bathroom, brand new tv, large beds, and a fair-sized room for New York boutique hotel. I recommend this hotel if you want a nice, quaint, boutique hotel in an excellent location!

Anyway, I was on my way with the direction repeating in my head, enjoying the walk and taking the occational photo until I reached my destination. However, I discovered that it is a popular attraction with coach-loads of foreigners spilling out onto to sidewalk (as we say in the US) and tour guilds talking to the masses in all languages. Not surprising I suppose cos he was an ...

The tour ended up being one of the best we've done because the guide we had was very knowledgeable and entertaining with just the right amount of sarcasm to make the stories entertaining and funny. So interesting to hear all the gossip abut the Rockefellers and John D ...

      We then headed back Uptown to Fifth Ave to look for cloths for Helen but there wasn't anything that was just what she wanted. With time ticking away we headed back to the accommodation to collect our luggage and we asked about a taxi. the woman at reception said that we'd be lucky as it's rush hour and it's really difficult to get one. She offered to ring up for us and ...

      ... The iced coffee was a tall glass of black coffee with ice in it. We added milk from the little packs that are everywhere in America. The food was all good and cost us $44 including tip. We got back to the theater just as they opened the doors.

      We were sitting 4 rows from the back (not what I'd call MID-mezz) but had a great view of the whole sweep of what was happening on stage. The show was FANTASTIC. The puppets so clever. Some ...

      Fresh from our celebrations, we had a full weekend planned. We started the day going to the top of the Rockefeller Centre which we had on good authority boasted the best views of Manhattan. We were ...
