The Ludlow Hotel

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My husband and I stayed in a studio queen for two nights and overall enjoyed our stay. The was small, but it worked for us. Didn't hear much street noise and never heard anything from the rooms beside us or above us. I will say the doors are a bit thin, because I could hear everything out in the hallways. The staff was great and check in was quick and very pleasant. The location is great! So many great places to eat within walking distance. We did not eat at the hotel, so I can't comment on how it was. The whole hotel is kept pretty dark/dim, with the exception of the lovely room in the back on the lobby level. I am torn on if I would suggest this as a place to bring a family. You definitely could, but it doesn't have the family vibe. I would 100% suggest staying here though in general and we will be back for our next couples getaway. *even got to see a movie being filmed while we were there*

This hotel is very conveniently located and the rooms are spacious and cozy. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. Very good service indeed. The bed is so comfortable and the bathroom is modern and very nice! I will come back anytime! Love it!

I’ve stayed in boutique hotels all over the world but the Ludlow has me hooked! Everytime I think of staying somewhere else the siren song of the chill lounge vibes, stylish rooms, and impeccable staff pulls me back in. Staying at the Ludlow feels like a home away from home. Great neighborhood full of tasty restaurants and tons of shopping!!! Has similar vibes to the Bowery but the Ludlow has a bit more heart.

The little sister to The Bowery Hotel just doesn't live up. The lobby is crowded and overwhelmed. The room is average and black soap? Really? Room service from the restaurant verged on awful. I just don't get it.

I stayed in a Loft and had a corner room with great views from every angle. The bed was huge and super comfortable, the room was quiet and I loved the decor. It’s a cool neighbourhood with good restaurants and bars on the doorstep. The hotel houses Dirty French and this is where you take breakfast. The staff are friendly and very hip, trouble is after 5 days the inconsistent service started to irk. Three words - Write it down !

Amazing rustic chic feel!! Great staff. Cozy room,great location & city view from 20th flr roof deck! location near multiple great restaurants made it hard to choose - also walked all around lower east side, alphabet city and east village -- live music nearby and great residential community feel to all those neighborhoods - felt safe late at nite as well.

The Ludlow Hotel is probably one of my favorite hotels I've ever stayed in. The decor is so fun and vintage, we absolutely loved it. The staff was great, location was excellent, wonderful staff and the room service was awesome. I just can't say enough how wonderful the hotel was. I'd love to stay there again. Thank you Ludlow!

The rooms are beautifully designed with a great view (French windows) of the Lower Eastside. Great restaurants nearby and an easy pickup point for Uber drivers. Well equipped gym on the rooftop with a wonderful view of the city.

We stayed at the Ludlow for our 30th wedding anniversary. Skybox Loft room was excellent: large bathroom & separate sitting room were standout feautures. Breakfast at 'Dirty French' was massively disappointing (boring menu, mediocre quality & over 30-minute wait.) Would not recommend eating at the Ludlow as there are plenty of far better options within a short walk (Russ & Daughters for breakfast, example.) The other bizarre feature of the Ludlow is the anonymity of it's staff. It's difficult to recognise who actually works there & even more difficult to discern who's in charge. This was apparent to a number of guests we chatted with while staying at the Ludlow. You'd see people wandering around with suitcases but have no clue whether they were guests or staff. It was the same in the restaurant, barely organized chaos. We watched one fellow guest give up waiting for his breakfast to arrive & simply walk out. In short, great rooms & location in the Lower East Side, but the rest of the 'package' at The Ludlow falls far short of what you would expect for the prices they charge.

This hotel is so welcoming, front desk staff so friendly when I arrived erased memories of the 1.5 cab ride from LGA from my mind. The upgrade to a terrace...heaven. Thank you. This is a very comfortable room, always nice, clean, stylish and without complications. Yes they are small but a one night stay perfect. The restaurant in the building has really good breakfasts and service is always attentive and fast. Thanks for the great one night stay.
