The Ludlow Hotel

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed with my wife and two teenagers for 4 days. Hotel is in a great area of the lower east side ( if you don't like quirky/bars/restaurants then this aint for you). Received an email just prior to our stay advising that the wifi was not working, however we received a discount and breakfast vouchers, really felt like the management went above and beyond, Had a great stay and would recommend the hotel, large double room has two separate sleeping areas which is great.

I really liked this hotel. The decor is warm and inviting and I felt like I staying with friends rather than a sterile hotel. The location is fab...wish the gym they gave me access too was more in keeping with the up market nature of the hotel. But, the bed was uber comfortable and I had some great night sleeps here.

We stayed at the Ludlow in April, Its a great location on the lower Eastside. The Hotel has a really cool vibe. The Room was fairly compact but adequate, super clean with nice bedding. The bathroom also compact but adequate and well equipped. The bar and restaurant were lovely very hip NYC. The price for NYC was fair and we totally had a great time exploring the neighbourhood and beyond with the subway a short walk.

While the Ludlow hotel is located in a wonderful neighborhood - the rooms are tiny and it appears to be losing its edge. The room and lobby were becoming shabby, the bed was creaky, the air conditioning noisy. The room was so smalll that there was actually no place to open a suitcase. The only place to put the suitcase was blocking the door to the room. And the room was super expensive to add insult to injury.

My daughter and I took a short getaway trip to NYC and The Ludlow was recommended by an acquaintance. It was just fantastic in every way. The service from our arrival was spot on...not too over-the-top, but just perfect. Our room faced Ludlow Street. It was clean and we loved the decor. We ate at Dirty French (the hotel's restaurant) and had fresh, delicious fish. The craft drinks were refreshing. We loved the service and felt really comfortable there. It is in such a great neighborhood - LES. So, convenient to get to Brooklyn etc. Can't say enough. You will be so glad you chose The Ludlow.

The vibe of this place is so cool - edgy, friendly and forward thinking. The choice of beverage is great (we didn't eat), and our room, whilst typically small (which is how it goes in NYC), was beautiful - offering panoramic views on the 13th floor. I only raise one slight caution for the hotel to consider, because if it sorted a couple of minor details - I don't think I could say I stayed anywhere better. 1) the hairdryer was incredibly tatty - for the sake of a few dollars please upgrade - everything about this hotel is designed to make you feel special, and getting yourself ready should be part of that 2) teaspoons!! How can you stir the coconut milk without m having to use your finger??! I will definitely be back - along with the slight burnt top of my index finger 😂

On business trip came to say at the Ludlow amazing experience and comfortable beds great services and amenities !!!! thank goodness I picked the place to stay . Easy access to and from city will be back here for my next trip !!

Just spent a week at The Ludlow and am devastated to be checking out! Stayed in Room 707 which had a spacious, wonderful patio overlooking Ludlow Street. Everything in the room was beautifully considered & perfect for a comfortable stay in the bustling LES. From the moment I first checked in and met Sophia at the front desk, the entire staff at The Ludlow impressed me with their friendly attentiveness. Seriously, if you’re looking for a hotel in NYC that offers a warm and welcoming ambiance, stay here! It’s hip without being showy and succeeds in feeling like a home away from home. Also, grab a cocktail at the bar and head up to the rooftop on the 20th floor - the view is amazing. Thanks again Ludlow - will definitely be back!

Intimate, fun, comfortable and clean! Near great shopping and across the street from the famous "Katz's deli. Close to subway stations also! Beautiful lounge/bar areas and a great little restaurant right on site!

What a find. Such a beautiful hotel AND amazing cocktails too. We didn't eat here but the rooms are fab and the view from the roof is well worth a visit. Great hotel in a great location and the staff were very helpful too.
