            I loved that fact that when we had an issue with something in the room it didn't take them for every to fix it. It was done within 10 minutes of letting the hotel know there was an issue.

            The location should be better. The cab driver had to call the hotel to get directions. I have to get use to that open bathroom area, but that wasn't major.

            The second night we asked to change room because there were noise outside our first room (which was right on top of the main entrance), and they gave us the King Deluxe Suite which was just amazing. We also appreciate the fact that they ride us back and forward to the metro station in a luxury Cadillac Escalade.

            Only the noise we got the first night. there is a bar on the roof of the hotel, so when it closes in the middle of the night, we hear everybody having a good time outside right above our window.

            The beds were comfortable (despite the lovely bed bugs that ate me & my friend). The staff were friendly. That's about it.

            The room had a mildew-y smell once we walked in the door. You can tell the hotel was an old building that was renovated into a "boutique" hotel. There was bugs in the room and what we thought would be a lovely room facing the Queens bridge turned out to be a bar-laced window facing an old 1892 abandoned building. Not what I expected, nor hoped for...at all.

            Hotel was very nice. Nightclub/bar at the hotel is very nice! Would recommend the hotel.

            bit of a walk from the subway, especially at night but still not too bad.

          • Group of friends
            4.2

            Too much noise coming from the street and from the night club on the terrace. It was almost impossible to sleep :-(

            The rooftop bar is cool, with a great wiew of the skyline

            The hotel seems run by a bunch of friends, more than by a team of professional staffers.Hotel need a serious renovation.

          • Couple
            7.4

            free shuttle to the metro station. Rooftop terrace view and breakfast buffet - good value. Location good.

            Bit too expensive for what wasn't really a boutique hotel. Room/bathroom a bit tired.

          • Family with children
            5.8

            Room very modern but prices high for bar and rooftop restaurant and mini bar. $12 for a glass of sangria! Would have preferred somewhere more central. No complimentary breakfast.

            I liked the bar restaurant on the roof, great view!

            The hotel construction was poor and incomplete. My bathroom still had the plastic protective coatings that said "remove before instalation", there was paint all over the places on the floors, and I felt like it was all very last minute and thrown together. I would not spend my money with Ravel again, especially with so money other new hotels opening in the area.

          • Group of friends
            5.8

            The location of the hotel is great - in case the hotel shuttle is working - taking people to the tube stations, it is 10 minutes to Manhattan. The hotel room was clean and stylish.

            The staff was quite unfriendly and not helping and not communicative. The shuttle bus did not work 2 days of 3 - and there was not "sorry for that". We stayed on the ground floor where noisy people walked around the corridors all over the night - they used the elevater to the night club on the top of the building. I wouldn´t like to have a room in some higher floor - because the night club was very loud. The location is great but the surroundings are just industrial and seem to be very dangerous at night.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            On Fridays and Saturdays the rooftop restaurant turns into a lounge. We couldn't sleep much on either night. I called the front desk on both nights to complain around midnight one night and around 2 am one night. Looking at my window I could see people coming in to the lounge. They were selling tickets until 3.30 am. People were standing near the entrance talking loudly and fighting. Two girls were drunk and fighting for about 20 minutes on Saturday night. I tried to talk to a manager on Saturday evening but he just walked away from me saying if you call the front desk they will take care of the problem. This is not an outside problem. Having loud parties directly interferes with hotel occupants getting sleep.

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            The room is spacious, the bed is very comfortable. The view from the rooftop is fantastic.

            There are 2 disadvantages, I think. Firstly, I really wish the restaurant on top of the roof belonged to the hotel and there weren't any disco parties at night. Secondly, the location of the hotel leaves something to be desired. I cannot say it is too far from the subway, - there are a number of subway stations within 10 minutes walking, and it takes only a couple of stations to get there from Manhattan. The problem is that the walk to the hotel does not seem quite safe late at night. The street is dark and the first two nights we actually thought a man was following us. So, if you decide to stay at the hotel, make sure you travel with a boyfriend or take a taxi each time you return after the sunset, although some taxi drivers may refuse to take you there

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            Good comfortable beds and pillows, roof restaurant and its view, friendly staff, lobby free wi-fi, free parking, free shuttle service. As a fact: 15 minutes of slight walk to the subway + 20 minutes to central Manhattan by subway, 10 USD to the restaurant streets in Queens by taxi, 15 USD to the Central Park.

            No free tv-channels, no free wi-fi in the room, uncomfortable bathroom, poor lighting in the room, rooms on the first floor are 100% visible from the street and noisy, loud central conditioning system, photos of the rooms are better than real rooms.

          • Single
            3.8

            Restaurant served good food.

            Cafe/Gift shop was a small room with a computer and two vending machines. Room was only made up at 4 pm. Not possible to get a cup of coffee during the day. Traffic from the bridge is very loud. No yellow cabs available - only a very expensinve limousine service.

            The hotel staff at night were very very understanding and did there best to accomodate use... thank you so much... we could've been sleeping on the street if it wasn't for them :) and the penthouse has a spectacular vue! wow! ill be coming back for sure :)

            the breakfast was melting in the sun ... didnt have enough choice... and the hours for room service are ridiculously short...that's it :)
