We booked three rooms at this hotel for a family event in NY. The prices are decent for NY. Rooms are pretty spacious and beds are comfortable. Restaurant is great. A little noisy, cleanliness is below average, customer service is lacking. Parking is about 6 minutes away, no bell hop to get luggage, and car service they use is overpriced..use UBER. No fridge in standard or king rooms, coffee maker in rooms but no cups. Lounge area has ice but there are no cups or ice buckets in's a... Read more

I picked this hotel as it was affordable for New York and is located right near the "R" train Station which is very convenient to go into Manhattan (approx. 30mns on the train. The hotel is also only 15 mns drive from La Guardia airport. This hotel is unconventional but the room was large and had everything that was needed. The bed was very comfortable and I was able to have a much needed rest after a long plane trip. The check-in was very slow as reception staff is slow or seems to be overwhelm... Read more

Upon walking into the hotel, I had high hopes for what the room would be like! Very cool decor, lots of antiques, and very trendy. However, the room we were in was not at all spacious like the website boasts. In fact, the overall setup was completely strange. We stayed in a superior queen room. I am really disappointed that I paid over $550 to stay in this hotel for two nights when they didn't even have the basic a closet or hangers, for example. We had stayed in an econo lodge ...

I really enjoyed my overnight stay here! The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. There were so many neat things to look at that I wish I had more time to look around. Stayed over a holiday weekend and did not hear any type of noise disturbance. It was quiet enough to hear the rain outside. I will be back next time that I'm in the area!

Everything Nancy B said....great hotel! Loved the vibe and found the hotel to be very clean and friendly and very easy access! Felt very safe in the area and would definitely stay there again! Only two complaints I could make...the temp of the room (thermostat would not allow us to raise the temp only lower it), and they really should add little coffee/tea makers to the rooms. Although they do have a coffee counter that you may purchase coffee, the hours are very limited. If you want a cup ... Read more

First, this hotel is in Queens, but it is so close to Manhattan that the distance is irrelevant. I have visited NYC many times and have paid twice as much for dirty converted closets on noisy streets in various parts of Manhattan. TPF is located in an industrial area with a subway stop a few feet away, easy access to anywhere. You will pay half as much for a whole lot more room and comfort. If you're looking for a grand reception area and polished marble, TPF is not your place. But if you like ... Read more

Of course, I was wrong. Things started off well ‚?? the nice guy at check-in upgraded me. The style of the rooms may not be to everyone‚??s taste, but I loved it.

Industrial vibe throughout with interesting and really comfortable furnishings. Lobby doubles as a place to meet friends and enjoy food and drinks from the hotel's bar/restaurant.

Delicious food downstairs, I was able to find on-street parking, slept well, room was quiet and big, with kitchenette and huge shower. There's a small coffee shop nearby, another up the block a bit, and a wine store that was closed when I got there. There's also a 7-11. Staff was friendly and helpful, decor is fun and unique without feeling fancy.

We enjoyed our stay at the paper factory. Affordable price also. We really loved the modern feel of the hotel. We stayed on the first floor this time. Should we stay here again we will opt for a room on a higher floor. From the first floor, if you open the window you can hear people speaking right outside the window. There was a group of people seemingly hanging out, out side and we could hear their conversations clearly. So, the first floor is not ideal for this reason. The amenities are great... Read more

This place would have been a whole lot better if I knew that it was going to have an event the night I checked in. It was literally a club scene. On top of the pulsating music and wall to wall people, drums started beating out on the street, complete with strobe lights at around 12:30. I didn't get to sleep until 2:00 am. Make sure you find out if the hotel will be operating as a dance club the night of your visit. Unless of course you go to hotels to not sleep.

After our flight was cancelled, we found this hotel that I'd quantify as boutique. Lots of art installments. Had to share a King bed with my traveling companion, but after grasshopper tacos and tequila at a walkable Mexican place, and super craft cocktails at their hotel bar, Mundo, that wasn't an issue. We had a time. This is a great place to spend time in Astoria/queens.

The Paper Factory has an off-beat flair, which makes it a fun place to stay. My room was spacious, and everything worked well (though I heard another customer complaining about an iron or something). The restaurant is good, and the location is also pretty good - very close to a metro stop, meaning you can be in Manhattan in 10-15 mins. The equipment in the gym isn't the best, and the elevator is frustratingly slow.

Check in was was very quick and simple. Staff was helpful. The ambiance of the hotel is dark and very dim. The beds were very uncomfortable and for this I would not stay at the paper factory again. With better bedding I would not have a problem staying again. But for some this may not be a problem. It has a decent location positioned in between Lga and the city. It also has an eclectic restaurant on the main level that serves a nice breakfast.

We stay some days in this hotel. The room was ok, but a little bit small. Nice decorations with wood and books. Servis and housekeeping ok. From the windows heard the noises from the street. Some corridors had a heavy odor, probably from detergents used for cleaning. I am allergic to some smells and it bothered me. Staying at the lobby in the evening was very pleasurable and relaxing.

I did NOT like the hotel. The staff was horrible and not helpful, definitely when it came to subway information. It was small and there is no parking available. I had to park 5 blocks up.

We didn't even need a rental car.
