2nd stay, just as enjoyable! Would stay a 3rd time

I got bed bug bites and bed was too small...Im 5`6 !!!

The hotel provided a room for a reasonable price. If you go in with those expectations, you're probably OK. I was expecting more, though. Based on the photos, there's a huge ballroom extravagantly decorated in period style. It looks like a neat lobby/lounge area for guests to relax during the day, right? Nope. It's locked during the day, apparently only open as a bar in the evenings. When I asked if I could see it before I checked out, they said no. So a neat space stays off limits to hotel guests during the day. The guest room did its job. It provided a bed. It was clean, as was the bathroom. The ambiance of the areas of the hotel that I was able to see was remarkable, but it's a shame that so much more is sitting hidden behind locked doors, controlled by a staff that doesn't seem to want to showcase it.

This time I stayed 4 nights. The Jane is in a great location for ambience, for eating and for transportation. It is about 6 blocks from the 14th street Station which gives you access to the A, C, E trains for North/South travel and the L train for East/West. Lots of interesting restaurants to try within walking distance. The Hudson River is 100mts.from the hotel. The rooms are tiny with shared bathrooms. Housekeeping does an excellent job of keeping things clean. The front desk staff are all pleasant to deal with.

At first hotel seemed cool. They have lounge area and music but i didnt attend. When i arrived i was extremely exhausted had been up for several evenings and previous day. When i get to desk i see stuffed artifacts and experienced a little offense (discomfort) after seeing a monkey with a religious type head covering in the desk area(i guess i need to research the history)my offense because i had just met an individual who spoke of a religion where they wear these head coverings and they had experienced some forms of oppression.. coincidence? Eventually. I get to room after debating if i should stay but because of time.and other i went to cold room. That night when approaching rest room some tallguest was standing in tight hallway which felt strange and the unisex rest rooms were tight (small) someone actually opened my stall while i was in there. . In my cold room could not adjust temperature accordingly so i slept on top of bed for several hours and checked out early.

I stayed on a Friday night. The lobby bar is a surprisingly popular destination. This is good if you spend time at the bar. Not so good when you are in your room. I was on the third floor and I could hear the music all the way from my room. It was quite loud. And they were people screaming out in the street. But comparing prices to other Manhattan hotels, this is a sacrifice it only you can determine if it's worth it.

Pretty simple hotel for the price. For those that just want to sleep,shower and go. Might not have a lot of comfort or fanciness but I liked it.

The staff was so kind and helpful. I cannot suggest getting a bike from the hotel and riding around the Hudson river which is across the street more highly. Even though there is a club downstairs Thursday to Saturday? Which brings a bunch of dare I say awful weekenders to the hotel it is still the best deal for the overall environment in town in my opinion.

I stayed in the single bunk room which was well-appointed with good, creative storage, a tv, and clock/radio for 3 nights. Most of the older features and tile were charming, but the carpets were worn in the rooms and hallways. The shared bathrooms were cleaned multiple times per day by very nice staff and it was nice to have shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided. It is a bit off of the beaten path and nearly a half mile to the 14th Street train station. I dismissed this when I booked the room but it is a real haul back late at night. The neighborhood is still busy late at night so I did not feel unsafe. Be warned that dance parties are hosted downstairs from Thursday through Saturday nights so the building shakes until the wee hours. It is not bad if you have the loud air conditioning on, but I am not sure I would be so thrilled in the winter. Just be prepared to elbow your way through the crowd to get to the front door... Ultimately, it was a good value for basic accommodations but I don't know if I would stay there again. After walking 25+ miles all over the city, the extra long walk back and lack of nearby buses just made my feet ache more.

great location and price. stayed in the bunk bed and shared bath, worked fine for us. staff very friendly.

A friend recommended we stay at the Jane when we needed a place for our family of 3 to crash for one night. Loved the attentive and friendly staff in their busboy uniforms, loved the ambience, and loved the old sailor theme. The Captains Quarters we stayed in with a king sized bed were beautifully decorated and had a wonderful outdoor patio and a private bath with a teriffic modern shower and tub. Can't wait to visit again.

I loved this hotel if you're not going to spend a lot of time in the hotel and just use it with the purpose of sleeping then this hotel is PERFECT. The only downside to it, is that you have to share a bathroom and shower with other people (it is always clean).

I use the Jane as a home base in NYC. The room I get is one of the "captain's rooms "- more spacious with bathroom - This hotel was used to emotionally and physically rehabilitate Titanic survivors!! I need quiet so I get rooms away from the very! Lively weekend bar scene:) The west village is my favorite sector of Manhattan- a more neighborhood feel with wonderful restaurants and niche shops-

114 years old hotel next to Hudson River, built as a home away from home for sailors with combination "sailor rooms w ole five bathroom facilities and "captains" rooms,larger and w private facilities. Used in 1912 to house and rehabilitate Titanric survivors. Currently have lower priced sailor rooms and higher priced captain rooms . My captain room was lovely,in a quiet location.renivations are being done in a quiet manner and will create a well preserved,lovely hotel.

This is a great place to stay. Perfect location, unique style and atmosphere. I feel like this will be go to hotel from now on, especially with the great pricing.

Great choice on a budget, in a great location. Steps from great cafes, the highline & more. Shared bathrooms were clean. Single rooms were a little musty but cozy. AC worked. I'd use a perfumed candle (not lit of course) or room spray. Just wish guests could use the roof for relaxing when the bar wasn't open. I'd stay again.

Despite shared bathrooms, each shower and toilet felt fairly private as they were in their own small spaces, like closets, with full, solid, locking wood doors. The room was tiny, like a ship's cabin, but clean and comfortable for one. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay there again.

ok for low budget stay

The shared bathrooms were cleaned multiple times per day by very nice staff and it was nice to have shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided.
