“Add free wifi and will be perfect!”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

We had once again a very good stay at Salisbury, in a spacious one-bedroom suite. I have nothing to add to previous reviews: large and clean room, huge closets, tiny bathroom, all this comes with the feel of an apartment, plus good mattresses and great location.
But they charge 10$ a day for the internet, which should be included in the room price!

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room and in the back.

Stayed here in January 2010 (my word was it cold) and had a great experience. The hotel is quite basic but rooms are clean and spacious, bathrooms are fine and there is a kitchenette and fridge which came in handy.

The best thing about this hotel however is the location, consiering its price. I researched on Trip Advisor for weeks before choosing this hotel and found it to be the best value I could find at this time. Located 5 minutes walk from central park and 15 from Times Square, it is really close to many of the main attractions and theatre district. We used taxi's and public transport very rarely as we were able to walk to most places we wanted to see.

New York is an amazing place and although bitterly cold this time of year it was beautiful and the snow really added to the atmosphere and feel of the trip. I just cant wait to go back!!

I stayed with three friends in a two-bedded, one-bedroom suite over President's Day weekend. Easy check-in and you can check in at 2:00pm instead of the standard 3:00pm. The rooms were definitely apartments at one time. In fact, there are still buzzers by the doors. I asked for a room in the back which turned out to be very quiet. Plenty of closet and drawer space. Mini fridge and microwave. The fridge is empty so you have plenty of space to stash groceries. There is a even a little table where you can eat. Yes, the bathroom and decor is dated, but everything works. Per suggestions on this site, I brought a multi headed plug so that all of us could charge our electronics at the same time. I used the pull out couch and remember thinking each night that I'd never be able to sleep on the bar - for about two seconds before I fell asleep. Do use the ac unit as you can't regulate the heating unit and it gets very warm. Cleaning service was thorough. Ice and soda and snack machines on the main level only. Duane Reade across the street and plenty of places to have breakfast nearby. Having the park so close was wonderful. 15-20 minute walk to Time Square and I'm a slow walker. $10 inc. tip for two of us to take a taxi from Penn Station with luggage, only $8 on the return. Would definitely stay there again.

We were at Salisbury Hotel for a week. We are a family of 5 people, 2 parents and three children of 7 years and 17.14.
Our room was a kind of mini-apartments with 1 bedroom, a living room with a sofa bed, bathroom, room for luggage and clothing, an entrance with microwave and table.
The cleanliness of the room was excellent, the staff friendly and helpful. Although the structure looks not really modern, is ideal for the location, steps from central park, 5th Avenue, and 50 metres from the metro. Absolutely recommended. Only a few downsides: high temperature and noise from the street

First the Good:
Prime location on 57th by 7th Ave in Central Park South (right across from Carnegie Hall). Large rooms (really large if you get the suite with two beds and adjoining living room) and the price is very good for Mid-town New York.
Now the bad:
Really no amenities at this property have to go to lobby to go up secondary flight of stairs to get ice. Two old very SLOW elevators. No restaurant, gym or other things you might expect in a hotel. TOO hot. While we were there in Feb. it was over 80 degrees and we had to run window a.c. the entire time we were there as even with heat shut off in room the hotel was just too hot. Internet is $10 for 30 minutes and they even charge this if all you want to do is print out your boarding pass in the lobby using their p.c. Breakfast (continental) is $9 on the 3rd floor daily. Plenty of local deli’s with better selection and as cheap with better food a few doors away.
The Ugly:
The hotel used to be residences (not sure how but so I am told). This meant larger spaces but it has not been updated in 30 years. Peeling paint, low light and just a general feel of old and worn. Carpet looks dirty and old.
Having said this this if you get a really good deal and are willing to deal with the 2 star nature of the hotel then perhaps it is for you. It’s a balancing act but one you should know what you are getting into before you book.

Room Tip: The higher you go the more you escape street noise or ask for a room on the back side of the hotel...

This was the second time we stayed at the Salisbury. It is a very clean, comfortable, older hotel with rooms much larger than NYC standards. It is conveniently located to Times Square/ Theater District and to Central Park and many museums, restaurants and convenience stores.. Take advantage of their specials. On our last stay we booked a large double/ double with pantry (fridge, microwave, coffeemaker) for $109 per night. It is a great place to stay.
