My wife and I went to NY to visit for a full week. I went two days earlier because I had extra time off work. I spent two nights in one of their "european style" rooms. If "european style" is tiny, with no shower, and no amentities, then I'm never visiting Europe.
The wireless internet did not work in my room and there is no cell service, so even my mobile broadband did not work. I had to go to Madison Square Park to get online. Plus there was only one working, English speaking channel (the CW) on the TV. There is no maid service, no elevators, the 3/4 size bathrooms are very small and cramped, the air conditioner was loud, the bed was a single matress. There was no desk or other sitting table or chairs. It was a room with a bed. Definetely "hourly rate" looking establishment.
When I voiced my complaints, they offered to put me on one of their "deluxe" rooms for only $50.00 more. I declined and instead booked a room at another hotel in Brooklyn for the same price I was paying. And I used the extra $300 I saved to pay for two $25.00 unlimited subway passes and road a 20 minute subway ride into town every day. It was definetely the way to go.
The La Semana has one thing going for it. Location, location, location. It's just a 20 minute walk from Times Square and even quicker subway rides to points of interest all over the city. But if you want any kind of accomodations ,this is not the place to be. Either spend the extra money to stay in Manhattan or stay in another burough or NJ and commute it.
I believe this hotel is a rent by the hour hotel. When I arrived the man at the desk was watching porn and I think smoking THC. There is no elevator so I had to drag my bags up two flights of stairs - no one offered to help. The room was small and not very clean. After asking several times I was never given clean towels. The television had three working channels. One was so fuzzy I could not make out what it was and the other two were porn. I would never stay at this hotel again even if it were given to me for free.
Room was never made up for second day of stay. Flea market on weekends across the street and clean-up goes almost through the night. Not the cleanest and descriptions are not very accurate. The room itself was average at best. I would not return to this hotel.
