We were more than happy to stay at the Contempo Design suites rather than in a more expensive hotel for, in many cases, less service. We had the one bedroom suite, ideal for a couple. The living area has a kitchenette with fridge and freezer, microwave oven, electric stove, toaster, electric kettle. The Contempo team are kind enough to provide... More

Contempo Design Suites is in an excellent location on Fifth Avenue at 13th Street East, well-situated in Greenwich Village for exploring the various other areas of lower Manhattan: West Village, Tribeca, Lower East Side and so on are all within fairly short walking distance. It is also close to Union Square, with its farmers market, and has some very good... More

After "outgrowing" our previous accommodation in New York, I was determined to find a new place for my husband and I on my 11th trip to New York. Contempo ticked all the boxes: location (Union Square, a fantastic base), comfort, amenities, cleanliness and service. Our suite had the rare treat of a functioning kitchenette, and we were given the use... More

I booked here after the place I'd booked (the excellent East Village Bed and Coffee) was affected by the hurricane and had to cancel bookings. I wanted to stay downtown and have some space, and this place was perfect. I stayed in the one-bedroom suite. The bedroom is separate and fairly large, with a mega-comfy queen-size bed, hanging and shelf... More

We spent 6 days here late July in the family suite on the third floor. Thanks Maria for your warm welcome. Good room service. Big apartment, well equipped. Bathroom is a little tiny. Main bed / living room was huge. Why isn't there a sofa to sit and relax? There is plenty of space for it. Beds are comfy. AC... More

My partner and I were fortunate enough to stay in 2 different rooms at the Contempo Design Suites; the studio suite and the one bedroom suite. Both rooms are very stylishly decorated, with fresh, vibrant colours and quality furnishings. The beds are absolutely enormous and extremely comfortable, and the suites are very quiet indeed, so you can get a really... More

My daughter and I spent 5 days at Contempo in August. We were impressed by the roomy studio suite, nice bathroom and shower, and kitchenette. There was at least twice as much space as the typical NYC hotel room. We had room enough to walk around and feel as comfortable as home. The room was quiet (we had the Studio... More

My mum, sister and I spend a few days in NYC in this hotel. We were looking for a hotel-apartement in Manhattan, well located and we were very pleased with our stay. First, it is very easy to find weather you arrive by cab or by subway (only 5 minutes walk from Union Square Station). The landlords are very nice... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
