I spent 3 nights here in November 2014, and found it suited my needs perfectly. The room was spacious, well appointed and very quiet. The location is very convenient to bus and subway. The manager Jason is helpful and friendly, and the other housemates were very congenial. The whole place is spotlessly clean, and the full kitchen meant I could... More

We've stayed here a few times. This house is operated by Mennonites who rent out rooms, even though there are more permanent students staying at the house as well. There are rooms with bunk beds as well as rooms without. I do remember a 'loft-type' bed situation with was quite unique, although probably not accessible for some seniors. Bathrooms are... More

I've stayed at Menno House twice, most recently for four nights. It is not luxurious and not warm 'n' friendly, but it gets the job done. The best guest room is the one overlooking the garden, which I stayed in my first time. This time, I was in a different room, one that is very dark and pretty charmless. It... More

If you are looking for simple, clean and safe lodging at a low price this is for you. If you are looking for a B&B with atmosphere and breakfast this is not the place. The location is near Gramercy Park, about a five block walk to subway, but only a half block walk to major north-south bus lines. Interesting small... More

Menno House was on a very safe and quiet street near Gramercy Park, Union Square and the Flat iron district. The rooms are very adequate, with sheets, towels, and an AC. We arrived around 9am and we were able to leave our luggage in the hallway. Our rooms were actually ready about an hour after we came, which was a... More

If you just need the basics, this is the place to stay. We were really only needed a place to sleep, so the price was right. The bathroom is in the basement, along with a kitchen. It's not fancy, but we knew that when we booked. The manager, Sara, was always extremely helpful in our email communications and when we... More

We had a fine experience at Menno House. Our room was perfectly adequate, the location was great, the price was right. The bathroom was clean, the kitchen area and guest fridge was nice to use, the A/C was great. It's a good place for singles and couples to stay. We would stay here again. But don't expect a big meet... More

M10003, Manager at Menno House, responded to this review

We take such concerns very seriously. Bedbugs are an ongoing issue throughout New York City. As a guest house with frequent turnover, we take a number of precautions to prevent infestations, including routine inspections, cleaning rooms after guests depart, and the installation of monitoring devices. If we ever have a confirmed case, we intend to treat it as swiftly as... More

Unfortunately our stay here was quite disappointing. Generally a well suited personality to run a suite with accommodations is one with a bubbly and cheery disposition. I am saddened to say that the manager running this unit was neither and probably should re-evaluate if being in a service oriented profession is really for them. We were greeted and given a... More

The Basics: Location is great, nice neighborhood with stores, restaurants and number of interesting places close by for groceries or dinner. The staff, mainly the manager, is very helpful and willing to help. The actual residents in the house seemed very friendly, at some points interacting with some of the guests, which is very important .They are all very friendly... More
