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.
