          Old and run down, the lobby looks really good but the upstairs is old and tired. But it was cheap! Stayed here because we had an 8am train to catch to Boston from Penn station

          We expected a 'budget' Hotel when we booked the Penn. The Location is why we chose it. We had read the other reviews of this hotel. We were still a little surprised by the 'tiredness' of the room and the level of dust on the edges and the lack of furniture and facilities. We felt there was no point complaining as the couple of times we did try to talk to staff for just general information we felt a 'brush off' attitude, like they were too busy to deal with customers.... Still, we were only going to be in there to sleep and the bed was fairly comfortable - although 3 pillows for a queen bed was odd!

          This could be a great hotel with a lick of paint and attention to detail...and some customer service training!

          Interesting hotel... Perfect location but abit old. Hotel is still the same since it was built in 1919.
          We thought we got upgraded to the 13th floor - turned out it was the ghost floor haha
          Would stay here again based on location.

          Only thing going for this 100 year old building is the strength of the many layers of paint that hold it together.
          That and it's location is without rival

          It wasn't too bad. If you get an upgraded room then it's worth the money. In a great location.

          Die Lage der Hotels ist erstklassig, wenn man New York erkunden will. Es ist fast direkt au fdem Broadway und man hat die groesste und wichtigste Metro/Zugstation direkt vor dem Hotel, die Pennsylvania Station.

          Das einzig negative ist, dass die Zimmer sehr alt sind, falls sie nicht grade renoviert wurden. Aber die Zimmer sind sehr sauber.

          The good: Location is everything! Located right next to Madison Square Garden and Penn Station was ideal for our situation. We were easily able to hop on multiple subway trains and across the street is a taxi line through the city (no tipping allowed). We walked a ton during this trip and it was nice being so centrally located so we could easily make it back to our hotel. Location aside, the rooms were pretty clean and the bathrooms were relatively spacious considering this is NYC and most bathrooms mimic small closets.

          The bad: Although the lobby was nicely done, I can't say the same for the hallways of this hotel. We were on the 13th floor and often joked how we were expecting to see Frankenstein himself pop out from behind a door. The halls were dimly lit and very old looking, could definitely use an update soon! Also, we were only given two towels during our stay.

          The ugly: The drain in our shower didn't work and we would be 6 inches deep in water within minutes of taking a shower. In addition to tipping, there's also a fee to hold your bags for a few hours after check out.

          So I finally managed to get to New York. I as glad to be off that plane and able to walk around. Unfortunately, I didn't get into my room until 2:30am on the 10th, so not much sleep but happy and alive.

          From what I've seen on the trip in, New York is beautiful at night. Can't wait for the three days to explore the city.

That's where I Nicole and her mom met up with us ...
