Why We Love It

  • Around the corner from Times Square, on a quieter side street
  • Rooms are tight, but guests are mainly out sightseeing -- Rockefeller Center is a 10-minute walk away
  • The hotel is less than a five-minute walk to Restaurant Row, lined with USA Today's favorites like Joe Allen, Orso and Becco


The Gallivant Times Square offers small, budget-friendly rooms in a tourist's most-wanted location. It is right around the corner from Times Square's main intersection, but hidden on a side street so that the immediate area is less heavily trafficked compared with hotels directly in Times Square.

Members like the location, and note that the rooms and bathrooms are small and a bit worn, but clean. Showers are doorless and can wet the floors. Wait times can be long at elevators, especially at busy times of the day, but the dozens of Broadway theaters within five blocks will keep guests out into the evening. Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall are three blocks away, the Museum of Modern Art and the high-end shops on Fifth Avenue are another 10 blocks from the hotel.

The An'nam on site offers Vietnamese and Japanese fusion cuisine, but also serves up a traditional American buffet breakfast each morning for purchase. DING offers freestyle barbecue that you can prepare yourself, shabu-shabu stews and tapas. For further exploring, Restaurant Row -- which is packed shoulder-to-shoulder with ethnic eateries and lots of bars -- is just a block or two west along Eighth and Ninth avenues.

Getting There

Typically 40 minutes by taxi from John F. Kennedy (JFK) Airport, the fare is approximately $50, not including tip and tolls. Alternatively, take the AirTrain to Jamaica Station and change for the Long Island Rail Road to Penn Station, which is 15-20 minutes on foot from the hotel. The journey should take over an hour but will be much cheaper.

I had two problems. First problem: I requested new paper cups, twice, but never received them. The cups weren't replaced when the room was cleaned. Second problem: The shower drained slowly and nearly overflowed before I finished my shower. When I reported this, no one ever came to look at it or clean the drain. If I had this problem at another hotel, I would have received a price break; however, when I reported this when checking out, the clerk merely said that I didn't owe anything because I prepaid on Travelzoo. I'm going back in March, pre-paid as well, but I might not have after this experience but pre-paid means no refund...this is a problem.

Great location near all the Broadway shows, very large room, clean, great value.

There were unit heaters beneath the windows that are a little old and not that easy to adjust and you hear the fan noise when it’s running. It works well though, to heat the room and actually the fan noise was a benefit because it would muffle the always present ongoing sounds in the streets below (sirens, garbage trucks, honking cars, etc), so I always got a great night’s sleep when I left the heat on low. No complaints otherwise. It was only the two of us, but they had an extra room with a bunk bed for two more people so the room was a lot longer and larger than a typical hotel room. It felt more like a suite. I would ask for a room like that again on our next stay.

The location was the best. We were able to walk to several different subway systems within a few minutes.

The room was smaller than even the pictures showed. Bathroom was tiny and often times water was splashing out and making the floor very wet, since there was no door/curtain. Heater didn't seem to be working for us and another room we talked to.

The location was perfect. The hotel was recently redone and contemporary. Also very quiet.

Appreciated the updated rooms. The only suggestion I would have is to have a nice size mirror over the desk.

Room was a little worn. Furniture needs to be updated. For the travelzoo deal, we would stay here again though.

Rooms are clean but could use a decor re-fresh. No carpet on floors was a surprise. But get out and enjoy all that NYC has to offer! Don't hang out in the room ;)
