    Fabulous

    Hotel room is large (for New York standard) and clean. Hotel is conveniently located within 3 blocks from Central Station. There is also live Jazz music every night at the bar lounge - no cover charge for weekday nights but must purchase food or drinks at a reasonable minimum $15 per person. Will certainly consider staying at this hotel again if rates are reasonable.

    Breakfast and internet (Wifi) were not included in hotel rates.

    Hotel staff is very friendly, and they have really nice jazz branches and evenings

    the room was cold and the air control system did not work properly. The room was not very clean. Phone and internet had failures. The bar in the hotel has not good staff (working very slowly, not bringing the bills for 15 minutes etc)

    Location.

    The hotel was great. However the staff was not enthusiastic and was lacking in the service department. I could have stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Battery Park for the same amount of money. The bar charged me $8.00 for a non alcholic beer.

    Superb

    Very much liked the location of the hotel. Near shopping, Grand Central Station, Empire State Building. We found our room to be very clean and the beds ever so comfortable. The staff was great. I thought the parking was quite reasonable for NY.

    Hakubai Restaurant. In all the 4 years that I've known and stayed at Kitano Hotel Hakubai has upheld their good service and the quality of their food. Kitano Hotel is a cosy hotel without too much fanfare. This is one of the things which I like about the hotel. The staff is always friendly although there are exceptions. On the whole it's a comfortable hotel.

    Although I do like staying at the Kitano Hotel I think it is time that the hotel did some upgrading to the hotel rooms. The carpets are old and the room has a stale smell when you enter. The bathroom taps drip. The room service menu also needs something extra. It's quite limited at the moment although I think having the Japanese menu is a good touch.

    Excellent convenient midtown location.Towel warmer is nice, if a bit slow.Robes in room, comfortable.

    Small room. No coffeepot: No spoon, sugar, milk provided for green tea. No makeup mirror. Only full length mirror is next to toilet.

    Very good

    The size of the rooms were very good. I did like the towel warmers in the bathroom. They also had adequate power supply for any gadget type traveler.

    The Kitano is a good overall hotel. I would not give it a four star rating but would give it a 3&1/2 star at most. The front desk staff were not very accommodating especially the management level staff. I was joining other people that booked this hotel so it was not my choice and it will not be my choice in any future travels. It is located two blocks south of Grand Central so getting a taxi was sometimes hard because they were occupied. And security was a bit low at the front door. Never was given a phone call announcing any guest they simply came to the rooms freely - something I am not used to in a New York hotel.
