                        Location is perfect.Hotel staff are very nice.Studio rooms are big for NY standards

                        There is a small kitchen(fridge,coffee maker and microwave) in the studio room.But there is nothing inside the fridge and no vending machines/room service available.There is no restaurant/bar inside hotel.Buy your own water bottles and coffee/breakfast to eat in your room.

                        everything was wonderful - hotel staff, provided services, design, hotel's location and etc.

                        housekeeping should be more often.

                        We were in Aka Central Park hotel for 7 nights in July 2011.the hotel is very well located near fifth avenue and central park. We received a nice room well equiped .The staff is really nice and we can feel they make all the efforts in order to please the clients. We appreciated Rachel Weinstein , Miguel and we wish to thank especially Leighanne Champion for all the help she gave us, for her patience , her professionalism and her kindness. If we come back to the U.S.a , in New York, we will come back for sure to the Aka Central Park hotel.

                        Comfort of the bed and the facilities in the room

                        Slow lifts.

                        location

                        bath room sink no room for toiletries---air conditioning didn't work properly------bed was uncomfortable----we had to check out exactly at 11:00 and our room wasn't ready when we arrived at 1:45. Not very accommodating

                        The staff is great, friendly and always ready to help.

                        I think some room could benefit from a double window to reduce noise and new mattress for the beds.

                        I loved that it was like"a home away from home." The hotel is well situated and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The gym was excellent and the lattes from the cafe were fabulous.

                        Perhaps the room needed to be cleaned more often as once in 9 days is probably insufficient if there are more than one person. Other suggestions would be: chair and table to sit and eat, complimentary basket of tea, coffee and sugar,

                        Very well trained staff, hospitality. Nice design of the rooms, new facilities.

                        A bit noisy ( not from the street but from the neighbor's rooms)

                        Location

                        The rooms are heavily scented with an unnecessary, overpowering perfume smelling fragrence. I had to leave the window open for 5 hours to get rid of the awful scented smell. Also, the doormen and porters are the worst I've ever come across, they behaved as though doing their job was a big inconvenience. I checked out at 11am and left my bags there until mid-afternoon, which is normal when checking out of a hotel if your flight isn't until later, except when I returned to collect my bags I was made to wait 20-minutes by doormen and porters who basically seemed to hate working at the place. Very unprofessional.
