Recent guest reviews

Really small light sleeper nightmare as you could hear all the noise from the city that never sleeps. Hotels best quality is its location close to shopping on Broadway, art and culture of China Town and Soho,, and finally Little Italy.

There wasn't much room to move in a double bedded room and we were tripping over our suitcases with three of us in this tiny space. However, we were close to great restaurants and the subway, 15 minutes or less from the theater district and Times Square, and comfortable enough for the limited time we actually spent in the room.

I am really glad that I found this property. The price was good, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the front desk staff were extremely helpful. I rented the slightly larger room and it was spacious enough for my purposes.

This hotel has the potential to be so much better with more attention to details such as cleanliness, updated ironing board, TV channels, etc. NYC hotels are expensive, but this hotel was not worth the hefty nightly rate we paid. The location is excellent.

Pros: good location between Little Italy, Chinatown, and Soho, very friendly staff, comfortable beds, abundance of good restaurants, updated bathroom Cons: no on-site parking, noisy street, very small room, small lobby

such a great hidden gem. Price was amazing for soho. Beds were soft and clean if a little small.

If you have ever lived in a studio apartment in a city, then you'll have no issues whatsoever. The rooms are small but very clean. The staff is helpful. The location is amazing. The price is fantastic.

hotel room was a little small but besides that i had a great stay ! very clean location was awesome close to shoppong. also the staff were a great help

I had the absolute worst experience at this hotel! When I showed up to check in, they did not have the type of room I had reserved and got nasty when I said I wanted them to honor my reservation. I was stuck in a room type I didn't want, was woken up during the night to a piece of the ceiling in the bathroom falling down and excessive subway and construction noise. I was promised that the manager would call me in the morning by the new front desk person. He didn't and that afternoon when I picked up my bags, I confronted him about the situation to which he sort of apologized, placed blame on the night staff and offered me no kind of discount. Would never stay there again- don't do it!!!!

The location of this place is perfect for me, as I usually hang out in Lower Manhattan, which is also where my bus dropped me, and where I needed to be. The room was very cute and clean, nice fixtures and shower/bathroom. Plenty of outlets to charge my tablet and phone, etc. Downsides: When I checked into my room, it was 83 degrees Fahrenheit - during a heat wave. I tried adjusting the air conditioning, but it seemed locked. It wasn't adjustable below a certain temp, like 76 or something. That would have been an improvement by several degrees. Ultimately, they sent up a technician who could not get it to respond properly either. They promptly moved me to another room, which was arctic comparatively. That room was in the front of the building, however. Other reviews I had read online suggested rooms in the back were less noisy. But it being summer, there was construction going on right outside my newly issued frosty room. One staff member warned me about the construction, saying it started about 6:30AM - even on a Saturday morning. The woman at the front desk corrected the other guy, saying there was not construction on weekends. There was. So basically my choices seemed to be hot as H-E-double hockey sticks and quieter, or cold and noisy. I went with the cool one, hoping I could sleep. Honestly, it wouldn't have been that bad had I worn ear plugs and not already had trouble sleeping on my own. They did let me check out at 1PM for no extra charge, which was awesome! All in all, I would stay here again because it's clean and cute, and the location rocks. But I know what to expect now, esp. in the summer when repairs are unavoidable all over any town or city.

You'll will hear jackhammers at 7am and subways rumbling under this hotel all day long in this shoebox. For the same outrageous price, you can stay at a much quieter M*ondrian around the block. Wish I did.

When I checked in, the staff neglected to say that a jack hammer from a road construction crew would be waking everyone up at 7am. When I called the desk that morning to move to a quieter, back room, there was nothing they could do - not even reduce my room rate which at $500/night I expect a little more than indifference. For the same rate, you can stay in SoHo luxury around the block at the M-o-n-d-r-i-a-n - this travel review does not allow brand names so had to hyphenate.

This hotel was a really good deal for its location. The area around it seemed safe, and it is within easy walking distance of all the shopping and restaurants Soho has to offer.

This is a small well modernised hotel in an interesting part of Manhattan. The staff were very helpful and pleasant, the room was very clean, typically New York small but the bathroon was well designed to fit the space. No bar or lounge but next door is Parigot, a bistro style French eatery with a small bar and a good attitude.

The room is small and expensive, but the location is convenient. For wifi, the hotel services book in the room is out-dated, you need to call the front desk... could use an update.

It was my birthday and i had to go to 2 events in that area therefore i decided to rent a hotel. I stayed there for one night, or 6 hrs all together; i checked in around 11pm left at 12:30 got back to the room at about 430am and had to check out by 12 pm, even though i checked in late. I called around 9am to see if we could have stayed a little longer to get my moneys worth and the receptionist abruptly said "NO, you Have to check out at 12!" I though she could have been a little more receptive to my needs or come up with an alternate solution. I work in the Customer Service field, that's what i would've done...If it weren't for her, i would have given this hotel 5 stars. But all in all, the location was perfect for what i had to do and the bed was very comfy. The room was really small but cozy/romantic. One thing that annoyed me was the fact that there wasn't a toilet cover!! My makeup almost fell in there twice! lol.

Great location, extremely comfortable beds.

Attendants are courtesy, room is small, but clean. site is very good. Will consider to come again.

Great

Nice location, clean rooms but by far to small for a family (12m squared for 4 people!!! plus small bathroom). In comparison with most hotels we had too expensive.
