Never again - MICE in the room

Other than its location, which is very convenient, this hotel is unacceptable! There are mice in the room, things are falling apart, and they do not care much when told about the situation. Look for another solution!

OIt is the most terrible hotel I have ever been to even compared to developing countries. It is dirty, smelly, dark, small, totally not hygenic as there are MICE in the rooms and their escrements all over the floor and the bed. Just CANCEL it from all the websites, please!!!

The hotel is in a very good location. Our room was clean, but very small and it had only a very small window that didn't allow a view outside. The staff was friendly.

Cheap hotel in New York

It was very central and easy for transport. However, the whole stay was marred by a smell of urine outside the room which they never seemed to get rid of, despite reporting it several times. It's put me off staying there again.

This was one of the dingiest hotels I have EVER stayed in. Just don't do it. Good location but it is filthy and under reconstruction, they advertise a free breakfast which they then said did not exist. The smell in the hotel was foul also. DEFINITELY NOT WORTH IT - TAKE IT OUT OF THE ROUGH GUIDE PLEASE!

Historical Traveller Reviews of 6 Columbus Hotel

Absolutely unbeatable for the price

from kirker
First off, TripAdvisor needs to immediately correct this hotel's one-star rating as well as its average "$802 per night" rate. Both are skewed on criteria to which I am not aware.

I am a former native New Yorker, and I've stayed (both before and following my move) in a variety of the city's best hotels ... as well as a few of its worst. Including this one in its previous incarnation, where I had the displeasure of seeing mice periodically pop their heads through holes in the pink shag carpet. (I only wish I was kidding.) Thankfully shag and mice have long since dispersed.

I received a rate of $145/night -- for a queen room, not one of the now-infamous "pods" -- via booking directly through their own Web site. Even considering the nosedive NYC hotel rates take in January and February, that's a total steal. That said, my room was nonetheless very small, and I banged my shins on that infernal platform bed on multiple occasions. I also had some issues with my A/C-heat system, which is the only reason I'm not giving this place five stars.

The location next to the Columbus Circle subway stop makes it a perfect juncture for reaching most areas of the city via subway, and although it's too cold to appreciate it this time of year, I'm sure its location practically next door to Central Park will prove a major bonus as well.

Blue Ribbon, for those of you unfamiliar with the city, is one of its best "minichains" (with only 4-5 total), and the 6 Columbus location is its first uptown. I ate there and was highly, highly impressed: it's some of the best sushi in a city filled with formidable sushi restaurants, including the infamous Masa across the street.

Sadly, it looks like management is already onto the fact that they priced the rooms too low: their winter rates are already up 50% (to $215/night for this upcoming weekend - on their site, not Quikbook).

Excellent beds, wonderful design, good location!

from Hariette
Surprised by excellence of this hotel; welcoming staff, nice atmosphere (good music everywhere), lovely design and heavenly beds. We've booked the hotel directly and did get a good deal for a hotel of this category. Location was good because of many metro-connections, nice area with many locations for breakfast (Pain Quotidien etc). We were very happy to have been staying in this upmarket area instead of Times Square and other midtown locations

Big thumbs up all round !!!! (visited from UK)

from 1234markc
We visited NYC from the UK for a 5 night stay at the end of November/beginning of december and the hotel was excellent put simply!

The staff are really friendly and helpful (down to earth friendly not [-] kissing friendly!). They all were polite and we enjoyed chatting to them as we left in the morning and returned later in the day. Concierge was really helpful right down to booking a table at a sushi restaurant for us a few blocks over when we realised the one downstairs was closed on Mondays....

We had a pod room, which did face the building at the back but ultimately it's that or the busy street at the front of the hotel- I know which one I'd prefer (and did!). It was adequate size wise as was the bathroom (heated floor and powerful shower were just the job after being out all day). The bed was massive and possibly the most comfy we've slept in! Flat screen tv was just the ticket as was the ipod stereo on the bedside table.

location wise the hotel can't be faulted. We ended up walking most places as nothing was more than a 20 - 30 min walk away really- time square was about 20 mins max, 15 if you didn't have to keep stopping to cross the roads. And if that sounds alot believe me there is more than enough to keep you entertained walking around! Yellow cabs could be got right outside on those occasions we didn't fancy the walk, on our final day we got a yellow cab down to the Staten Island ferry port for about $18 then spent the afternoon walking up to the hotel stopping for coffee and shopping along the way. If you walked it with no stops you'd be looking at 1.5 hours or so.

Sushi restaurant and bar are super cool (as the hotel in general really), pastries and coffee in the morning in the bar watching the world go by is a good way to start the morning, and tasty sushi in the evening in relaxed surroundings a good way to end it.

The one negative was that the room we had was at the end of a corridor (with two other rooms)- some nights we got a bit of noise (lift door "ding" or a door slam). This was reduced by closing the door that allowed access to the three rooms so all in all not a big issue.

We used a generic hotel booking website so got a decent deal. I'd happily recommend this hotel and make a return visit in the future. When we go to London we stay at a hotel called The Hoxton and this hotel is very similar in style, atmosphere and comfort.

All round excellent.

Too small to bother

from JMSBoston
While the staff was very friendly and service oriented, this was one of the most ridiculous of the 100+ nights I have spent in a NYC hotel!

In my first room (which was so small, I hurt myself when I turned around) the telephone didn't work. After 3 visits from the non-English speaking "facilities guy," the apologetic front desk clerk gave me a new room. While this room was no bigger, at least it didn't look onto the airshaft covered with pigeon droppings. All was well until I returned to my room at 11:00PM and tried to turn on the heat to take the chill off the 60 degree room. No heat. No facilities guy. No other rooms. No luck.

While the Sushi restaurant in the lobby is "happening", it was the only kitchen functioning. Breakfast was stale pastries and lukewarm coffee while room service was a 3-ring binder of NYC delivery services.

If you are a fasting Liliputian, this is a great place. Otherwise, go down the street or around the corner.

Perfect!!!

from niwong
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at 6 Columbus. The hotel is situated midtown, opposite the Time Warner Centre and within walking distance of Times Square, Central Park and all the important shopping streets. The hotel is small and intimate, the staff are very attentive and the concierge is very helpful. He arranged a fab night out for us and put us on all the guest lists. I was expecting a pokey room given the reviews, but the 'Pod' room really wasn't that small... the room comes with a very comfy bed, designer edibles, ipod docking station, flat screen and the bathroom even has heated flooring( oh and an amazing power shower).
The hotel houses a very popular New York sushi restaurant, the food was pretty decent. The hotel is on the same street as the Hudson hotel( pay a visit to the bar) and also the Mo bar at Mandarin Oriental( the view of the city is amazing).

All in all, can't fault this hotel. Does everything a hotel should, very comfy, central location and excellent attentive staff.

Will be my New York sleeping spot going forward!!!

wonderfull rooms

from fromVlaanderen
In this area of NYC a hotel with less ambient music and vivid as the neighbours from the Hudson. Breakfast and dinner was a bit disappointing (for Europeans?) but the rooms were fantastic. Spacious, very clean, quiet. To go back!

Quick stay at 6 columbus

from cmiller_80
I decided the visit NYC for a friend's party last minute. 6 columbus was offering a rate of $258 (total!), so i decided to check it out.

the hotel is located at the southwest corner of central park, directly across the street from the time warner bldg. 5th ave is within walking distance, as well as other typical NYC attractions. it is very conveniently located.

The hotel staff were absolutely charming. Everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating.

The hotel itself is well designed visually... a sleek and attractive space. My room was a "pod" room. it was quite small, as was expected, but perfectly clean and well designed for its purpose. The bed was very comfy as well.

my only critique involves the insulation of the room. I was in room 72, and the wind was quite loud. you could also hear doors opening and closing, etc.

I will certainly return to the hotel, but maybe next time i will bring some earplugs. ;)

Fantastic Hotel!!!!

from MissSea
This hotel was brilliant. On arrival, the doormen asked for our names as we were a party of 6, and took our bags inside. When we were checking in, the manageress came out and asked was it OK that she had upgraded all of our rooms as she had seen it was a girls holiday!! Of course we said yes!!

The rooms were spotless and the beds and pillows were the most comfy i can ever remember in any hotel I've stayed in!

Each night the room was turned down and towels, toiletries and water was replaced.

It was so close to Central Park, and the Time Warner building across the road has some nice shops and i would definitely recommend the Porter House restaurant in there too!

We got great rates for this hotel on Quikbook.com and if i am lucky enough to get back to NYC, i'd definitely stay there again!! Well worth a visit!

Nice additon to midtown

from cjtodd
It was a busy week in NY and I had trouble finding a room at a good hotel (I'm picky) so I decided to give 6 Columbus a try. The staff is well trained, the doorman asks your name when he takes your bag and then radios inside so that you are greeted by name at the desk. As I came and went from the hotel, I was always addressed by name. I arrived around 1pm and they were able to provide a room then. I had a queen deluxe room. It did face the narrow alley but I would much prefer that to the noise of 58th street. There is no view on 58th, it is a narrow street and looks onto the glass building of the TimeWarner center. The room size is typical of a NY boutique hotel - small but comfortable and well appointed. I'd rather have a smaller nicer room than a large yucky room. (If you want large and yucky, I can give you that list.) Everything is new and clean which is always a plus. There is a small wardrobe instead of a closet so don't overpack but it is adequate. The bathroom is small also (I had one with a tub) but manageable once you figure where to put things. It might be a little cramped for 2 people, depending on how well you like each other! The doors are heavy and do slam loudly so in the morning if you are not an early riser you'll probably hear them. Each room has it's own central ac/heat which is nice and not the norm in New York. Unless it is a new building or completely renovated, you don't have much temperature control in many NY hotels. I like having my room cold at night and toasty in the morning so I appreciate the unit. But I do have to mention that the fan is very loud but it makes for good white noise for sleeping and drowning out slamming doors. The pictures on the hotel's website are accurate. There is a japanese/sushi restaurant in the hotel which was good but when it's not open, you have to go out which isn't really a big deal. But if you like to have room service in the morning, this isn't the hotel for you. There is coffee/tea and pastries in the lobby until 10am but you have to fetch it yourself. I have stayed at/checked out many hotels in the area and this one is probably one of the nicest. The Peninsula and FS are my favorites but taking a step down from those, if this is the area you want to be in, I'd recommend it. Since it's a new hotel without much history, you can email me if you have a specific question.

Perfect place after venturing through the streets

from papa_travel
I stayed at this place with my girlfriend for three nights. After trying to find a place that would suite our needs for this trip for more than a week I finally came upon the 6 on Columbus. We reserved a Pod Room (due to our limited budget) and were completely happy with it. Upon arriving we were greeted by extremely polite staff. Everybody working for the hotel was friendly and helpful throughout our stay.

The room was very clean, nicely designed and comfortable for two people who use it as a place to relax after hitting the streets of New York. In the morning we found coffee and a selection of good tasting baked goods in the lobby.

The location of perfect. It is in walking distance to everything in midtown Manhattan right on the SW corner of Central Park. A subway station is across the street. There are several shops and restaurants around.

We would stay here anytime again.

Exploring Don't take a tourist bus trip, New York is about going and exploring the huge amount little gems for yourself!!

Subway restaurant next door There is a Subway restaurant right beside the entrance, in case you do not want to pay restaurant prices.

Walk Walk Walk The best way to see the city is by walking. Double Decker buses are great and all, however, you might miss they things that go on street level. You walk from the 90's to Columbus Circle via Central Park West, in less than 45 mins, at a nice pace. Top 100 things to do before you die is see Central Park in the fall.
