Inside Katie Price’s £44-a-night New York hotel where guests have complained of ‘filthy rooms, mouldy bathrooms and cockroaches crawling in the shower’
Katie Price has stayed at a £44-a-night hotel in New York with Kris Boyson, two weeks after being declared bankrupt.
The television personality, 41, has shunned luxury in favour of a budget holiday for the 2-star Hotel Pennsylvania near Madison Garden.
And a number of recent hotel-goers have rated their stay only one out of five stars on Trip Advisor – complaining of filthy rooms, rotten doors, mould in the bathroom and bugs crawling in the shower.

Photos of the hotel shared on the review site show peeling plaster, a bathroom covered in dirt and even cockroaches in the bath tub.
In a review written on TripAdvisor from the 9th December, one tourist wrote: ‘Horrible. Beyond dirty. Very old hotel. Very old and uncomfortable jelly bed. No Comforter on bed. Super small bath towels, no Hair dryer. no air conditioning in the cold weather… Coffee and a old and cold bagel for breakfast.’
The Hotel replied: ‘We appreciate you letting us know about the issues you encountered so we could address them, particularly with our maintenance and housekeeping team.

‘However, we are happy to share that we are working hard and investing in our hotel to improve our guest experience.
‘As part of that, we are renovating rooms and incorporating the latest technology. We are also creating inviting public spaces on every floor for our guests to enjoy.’
Another added: ‘The hotel is absolutely abysmal, the rooms were dirty and have the cleanliness of a rubbish bin.

2 star: Photos of the hotel shared on the review site show peeling plaster and a bathroom covered in dirt
Broken: Another photo taken by a tourist showed a damaged door handle
Dirty: Another photo showed black filthy towels on a bed
‘The rooms are not as shown on the website pictures and are not even liveable. The shower and toilet does not work properly and the rest of the room doesn’t look like it has been cleaned since the 1950s.’
A third visitor wrote on the site: ‘Sleeping on a bench in Penn Station would have been cleaner. The “standard” room is code word for “hasn’t been updated in 20+ years”.’
However other guests gave five star reviews, praising the hotel’s central location.

‘Really enjoyed out stay here, even booked our last two nights there in NY after traveling around for a week. Decent size room and bathroom with a very comfortable bed and very clean. A very busy hotel with very help staff. The location is perfect,’ one wrote.
Another tourist added: ‘Hotel in the best location. You can walk everywhere midtown like Times Square, Fifth Avenue and Empire State Building’.

The former glamour model was declared bankrupt at the Rolls Building in London last month after she failed to meet the terms of an agreement to repay her creditors.
She is now thought to be in debt of £800,000 after spending her £45million fortune on lavish beauty treatments and expensive holidays abroad.
But during her Stateside break, sources claim she’s not holding back when it comes to spending and has reportedly blown thousands on designer clothes, despite her financial status.

An insider told The Sun: ‘In between meetings, Katie’s been hitting the shops – and she’s not holding back on spending.
‘She’s blown thousands of dollars on Versace and Ralph Lauren – she’s saying it’s all on presents and she’s not going to let going bankrupt ruin Christmas.’
‘She says her kids deserve to enjoy it and she’s got a loan from a friend, and some spending money from Kris, and she’s using credit cards still. You’d never know she was bankrupt from the way she’s been acting.’
MailOnline has contacted Katie’s representatives for further comment.
