Editorial review:

The rooms at this charming hotel are tiny, albeit comfortable, and the amenities are good. It's located near the Theater District and Union Square. The staff is accommodating and the great wine hour compensates for the subpar food and dated facilities. If you want a lot of room and good views, you should rent a suite.

  • Lobby is beautifully appointed - Bathroom were very clean - Subway system only a short walk away

                                            Location is wonderful and the hotel has a boutique/artsy feel. Cooler than the traditional Marriott/Hilton chains. Good value for the money.

                                            Great value in perfect location. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. We walked everywhere in the city and The Serrano Hotel was the perfect home base.

                                            Construction is ongoing at the Hotel, but the workers didn't start until about 9 am, so it wasn't all that bad.

                                            9.2

                                            We appreciated the friendly staff, the great rooms and the affordable rate. Excellent choice for when you are on a fairly tight budget but want a great hotel experience.

                                            The garage fee was rather high, it was more than 50% of what we paid per day for the rental of the car, and we would have appreciated a slightly lesser fee.

                                            Great room, great staff. Not the biggest room, but very clean & comfortable. Couldn't believe the price I got through Booked.net.

                                            The front desk staff usually took between 15-20 rings to answer the phone. In addition, when my girlfriend was awakened by the construction, the person at the front desk offered to give us a voucher that night for breakfast the next morning; it never happened. If this hotel could get a little better service out of the front desk, it would be great. Even so, I still liked the hotel.

                                            The staff was really nice and helpful whenever we needed anything.

                                            It was noisy with the Hilton strikers almost directly outside our window.

                                            7.8

                                            The hotel staff were extemely helpful and vey friendly, the rooms were small (as in many older buildings) but very clean and nicely decorated. Room service was good and arived on time, unfortunately we did not have time to try the restaurant as we had prior engagements during our stay, we will definitely stay at the Serrano again.

                                            The staff went out of their way to help--especially getting that 15.00 van to the airport. (A neighboring hotel charged 50.00!) i would definately stay again. Dr. Marilyn Murray

                                            Rooms are small...

                                            Location was very good. The lobby had an interesting design. The daily wine tasting was a nice touch. Price range was better than most.

                                            The layout design of the washroom, could've been done differently to more effectively use the limited bathroom space. Overall size of the room left something to be wanted.

                                            The staff was very nice. I also liked the free coffee available in the lobby every morning. The room was quite large and very clean. The hotel is close to Union Square with a lot of possibilities with regard to shopping, dining, etc.

                                            The hotel is quite close to de Tenderloin-area which means that you find a lot of homeless people nearby. However this area can easily be avoided. Also the decoration of the hotel is old-fashioned; I didn't like that so much.

                                            even though the room was a little smaller than i expected, the service was excellent and the employees were very friendly. Also the location of the hotel was close to the downtown and the Union Square, where it was very convenient for us to travel on feet.

                                            Compare to what we paid for the hotel, the hotel only served coffee and tea in the morning. Also, there wasn't much to do in the hotel since the size of the hotel wasn't too big

                                            There was a nice happy hour - which we caught the tail end of, although we didn't see anything but wine (no food). The location is close to Union Square and other points of interest. the bed was very comfortable.

                                            The room was very small - hardly any room to move. it was a good thing we spent most of our time out on the town because the room was cramped. there was no other place to sit other than the bed. the bathroom was extremely tight. my husband hit his shoulder and side on the shelf next to the toilet a number of times. I have had twice the room for almost half the price. Also we called and asked for parking. the person who answered the phone told us there was valet and other than that a number of parking structures near the hotel. She failed to tell us there was one right across the street! There was scaffolding engulfing the hotel - but, oh well, gotta remodel and upgrade.
