First known as The Westchester, then as The Occidental, then as The Pioneer, and now as the "The SOHOTEL" the oldest hotel in NYC is located in lower Manhattan off the Bowery Street at 341 Broome Street, a few steps from Little Italy and China Town. Built just North of the spot where the British once had a barrier gate, and where George Washington entered the Bowery with his troops and took command of the City, setting up the government of the United States on November 25, 1783.

What did you expect at this price?

Actually, this should be 3.5 stars, but that doesn't appear to be an option. Pros: Location - it's hard to imagine a better location at this price-point. Walking distance to so many fabulous places Decor - Beautifully decorated common areas, and with the ongoing renovation work, you get the sense that the rooms themselves will follow. Free wifi Icy-cold AC! Did I mention the location? Cons: Yep, that's a mighty small room. But it's NY after all, so that's to be expected! However, the bathroom was exceptionally tiny. Honestly, I've never seen a smaller bathroom. Just barely usable. Old/worn bathroom fixtures - looks like it hasn't been updated in decades. Mold/mildew on the shower curtain. Probably original materials from a time before the hotel went "boutique". Needs updating pretty badly. All in all, the pros outweigh the cons, especially at the price. If you go in knowing what to expect, and don't plan to spend time in your room other than to sleep, you won't be disappointed!

Perfect short stay hotel!

Fabulous location, small but neat rooms, really great for a quick stop over in NYC! No food in the hotel except for a couple vending machines, but such a central location for great eats in Chinatown and Little Italy who cares?

Fabulous vintage store a block away - Ritual Vintage is at 377 Broom, and the outlet store Ritual Archive is at 167 Mott, just around the corner.

Great location but rooms were too small

I stayed there a few days ago and the location is great. The outside of the hotel looks cool too. But my room was a 4 flight walk up and there were no elevators. I don't mind the exercise but when its 3am and you want to just crash, walking up those flights are annoying. The room is the size of a closet. The bed was nice but there was no room for anything else. The bathroom was just as small. Not good for more then one person.

Very clean. Friendly stuff

Walking distance to Little Italy. 10 minute walk to the subway. Rooms are small, which is typical for NewYork. Very clean. Hardwood floors. Air conditioner in room. Stuff was always available whatever was needed.

You get what you pay for

The location of the SoHotel was great -- near NoLita, Little Italy and Chinatown. Close to the Spring Street Subway station and lots of little boutiques and bars/restaurants. But the room was uncomfortably small. There was NO closet and NO telephone in the room -- which I thought was strange. The bed (queen) took up the entire room and I found myself walking over it rather than around it because there was no space in between the walls and the bed. Overall, great location, but they need to make the rooms a bit more "livable". I understand rooms in NYC are typically small, but having traveled to the area for years now, this is by far the smallest room I have ever stayed in.

Don't Stay At This Hotel

Basically, what I found was a hostel in a run down area of SOHO. There was no elevator, the floor was wet when we checked in and the noise within and outside the hotel was unbearable. To top it all off I ended up contracting scabies from the dirty linens in the hotel and am now being treated for the parasites by my physician.

YIKES!!!!

The Sohotel is a dump. The location was not good , I would never walk outside this location at night. I would never reccomend this hotel to someone I liked. I would never stay in this sleazy roach motel again.

So-So SoHotel

Given the short notice with which we made our reservation. This old converted hostel provided adequate accommodations. The day reception staff was a bit brusque and uncooperative, however with a little assertion on our part they provided our room prior to their usual check-in time. The night staff was most courteous and helpful; they provided an excellent reference for an authentic Little Italy dining experience.
