Recent guest reviews

This is an inexpensive, no-frills hotel. It is perfect to sleep in after a day of enjoying the city. I have two time shares in Manhattan, much better accoutrements. However, I prefer the St. Marks.

I read a few reviews before our stay here, some negative, some positive, but after actually staying here, what a steal of a deal!! Sure the rooms are small, but it's a historic hotel in a great location in New York City! We stayed 3 nights at this hotel in one of their one full bed hotel rooms which very comfortably sleeps 2 guests. We enjoyed a private bathroom (not a shared one) and the hotel was VERY conveniently located near the 4, 5, 6 and also R, W Subway Lines which took us anywhere we wanted to be in no time at all! I absolutely enjoyed staying here and would stay here again. It's not the Taj Mahal, but for the incredible price that left us with money to do lots of fun things NYC has to offer and the comfortable room we got, with the location, location, location, it was absolutely fantastic!

This hotel is in a small, funky building within a short walking distance of lots of restaurants and both Cooper Union and NYU which is why we chose it. The room was fine, if a little dated, but we really liked that the two beds had their own separate rooms and there were two bathrooms for the three of us. Biggest surprise is that they DO NOT TAKE CREDIT CARDS - very strange in 2017 :-) They do, however, have an ATM in the lobby, with (of course) a fee for withdrawal.

My room became smoked filled as the night went on as someone was smoking either in the hallway or in another room and it was AWFUL! In addition, there were bugs in the room---looked like mosquitos, which is very unusual for late October! Had to pay cash which is NOT listed on the website and certainly makes me wonder why???

This stay is bare-bones, but just enough! The staff were wonderful and accommodations clean, comfortable and private. For the money and location, it's the BEST hotel I've stayed in. <3 Not for Times Square touristy travelers and anyone with mobility issues --- no elevators and everything is only accessible by old staircases.

Hair in the shower and cigarette burns on the blanket. Air conditioner 50/50. Had some difficulty accessing the Internet. I nEver saw anything that said it was cash only but that's what it was so bring lots of money

The reason I gave it at 2 overall is that they accept only cash no credit cards I did not see this listed when I booked it through Orbitz. In all honesty I may have missed that detail but the point is I have never stayed at a hotel before that accepted only cash. I had to scramble to transfer money and go to an ATM to get them the cash so I could check in. So just be forewarned its cash and carry. Also there are no ice machines on the premises.

They would only take cash, no cards to pay for room. You have to take your luggage up a steep flight of stairs, no elevator. Not handicapped accessible. But the perks: located close to NYU and Lower East Side Tenement Museum and subway. Tjere are.no amenities...not even a hairdryer. If you're in town for a short stay, or not planning to stay in your room for long....this place might be for you.

Its an older multilevel building with no elevators, the rooms are not exactly up to date, and the place could benefit from a painting. Guests were in and out until all hours, the walls are thin and i heard every noise. It was a hot night and the ac didnt work well. Its also a cash only hotel so plan on paying cash, they dont take credit cards. Its blocks from NYU , webster Hall, Washington Square park, shopping, restauramts, bars and clubs. Its conveniently located in the heart of the E village. I doubt i would stay there again....it wasnt the worst, but nothing to write home about

The experience was good, friendly and helpful staff. The room was really disappointing.

It was nice, staff at the front desk seem like really nice people,very helpful. I had a nice experience.

great location, easy access to lots of places, reasonably priced a bit old and run down though small rooms no additional facilities staff is very accommodating and helpful .. kudos to them

For the price, I should have expected a bare room with one cheap metal chair. The tv was tiny and 15 feet plus from the bed and unusable. Nothing to hang clothing, Dark and Dank. I was looking for cheap and I got cheap. I got in the heart of East Village and access to everything but it came at a price of seediness. I would recommend it knowing its exactly what you pay for
