Needed a place for a quick overnight stay in the city. The Modernist is a quick subway ride into midtown Manhattan, while also being located in a fun neighborhood with many choices for food and drink. The room was very nice with a small balcony, kitchenette, dining area, and clean modern bathroom. It was quiet with only four rooms per floor. There is also an interesting art gallery at the lobby level.

My family of 4 stayed here just last week. We loved our stay. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived before check in and they let us leave our bags and even put them in our room for when we got back later that night. Little things like this are so nice. Room was perfect size for 2 adults and 2 kids. The hotel was quiet, which was great after the hustle of the city. Our only complaint was parking was not very convenient but we ended up finding a reasonable parking garage not too far away. Definitely would recommend this to friends.

The rooms are very nice as they are newly refurbished, booked 2 rooms with 1 being a suite as we had 5 people to accommodate. Despite a generic booking site saying a standard suite would fit 5, this was assuming you would sleep 3 in the main bed which is very large and possible to do but realistically the bedroom has 1 bed and the living area has a pull out sofa/couch so base on this. In room fridge, microwave and coffee maker with a safe so all the amenities needed. TV in main living area and bedroom has basic channels and apps so you can use your own log ins for Netflix etc. The rooms are the main point of the "hotel" as it has no outdoor space (the pictures of the outdoor terrace on the website/tripadvisor etc are connected to a room) with a gallery area selling local art the only public space as the reception is a small desk in the entrance corridor so it. The downsides are the city views from the suite which are obstructed by larger buildings and the local development will only add to this issue so I expect it will lose it's city views soon enough. The parking is also street parking only and while unrestricted to some extent, each street has one morning restriction for street sweeping, it was very difficult to find a space as within 2-3 blocks there are quite a large number of auto body repair shops/garages that use the local streets to store dozens of vehicles so we ended up finding a spot one street over but couldn't risk moving the car for fear of not getting a spot on return. The Metro is only 5 mins walk away and on the Yellow line direct to Manhatten which is great and there is a local store on the corner along with others nearby and a bar 2 streets over but it is very pricey on drinks. We felt generally safe in the area but is isn't the hip and upcoming type of area noted on the website or at least we didn't witness it as a mixture of local homes and new apartment developments.

We stayed at the Modernist to celebrate our anniversary. It was wonderful from the start: the front desk was helpful, our room was both comfortable and well designed, the window views were magnificent and most importantly, the bed was so comfortable and the shower was a marvelous rain forest one. It is very close to mid-town Manhattan without being in the midst of all the the noise of mid-town. (And, as an interesting plus, they have an art gallery with some interesting contemporary art by new artists on the first floor). I highly recommend it and will stay there again for special occasions.

Stayed here for 1 night for my sisters birthday celebration. Room was very clean and spacious and the balcony was unreal. I wasn’t expecting a full patio just for my room only. Enough space. to have a nice get together. Lovely gym, conference room and ice machine is the only other room on the floor i was on ( i believe it was the 2nd floor). Area felt safe and I was able to park in front of the hotel and there was a store right in the corner for me to grab breakfast from before heading home. Only negative is my key jammed when i was in a rush to head out and i ultimately had to leave my door unlocked until i returned. Would definitely stay again in same room as long as the locks are fixed

I loved the hotel. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the cleanliness is great, the location excellent, and overall 110% unique. It's a family-style, small business which Yianni divinely manages. He was so thoughtful, helpful, and cared for me, which makes me believe that they care for all their guests. I felt like I was at home, the room was spacious and beautiful, and I could feel the love from the family who built it with their own hands. I don't think you will ever find accommodation this size in Manhattan at this incredible price. The art gallery was beautiful; I loved the concept. !! What a great idea The location is fabulous. A few blocks from the train and less than 5 min from Manhattan. I will definitely stay here again !! A special recognition to Yianni seriously; he made all the difference, and I am forever grateful for his kindness.

Quaint boutique hotel in LIC, walking distance to the subway station, room is clean and spacious, super comfy bedding with plush pillows. Room comes with toothbrushes and indoor slippers, which is common in Asia but never in the US. Friendly staff, super fast internet, much faster than chain hotels and perfect for ZOOM meetings. The only downside is that the window shade behind the bed does not provide full coverage and it’s gets very bright in the morning and I had to wear a eye mask. And there’s no facial tissue for some reason. But it’s a great hotel nonetheless, worth checking it out for sure!

Had the greatest interactions with the front desk staff, and the beds were so comfortable. The art gallery was a nice touch and my wife and I took home a piece for our living room. Stayed for 6 nights and the kitchenette made it easy for us.
