Stayed at The Bowery in March 2014, when travelling alone. First time in NY. Great spot, bags of character, Little Italy and Chinatown a stone's throw away, great for underground. Best to walk, if you can, although you will get a sore neck from looking up. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room is based on a ship's cabin.... More

I went for 2 nights, ubication very good, GOOD STAFF, CLEAN BATHS and rooms too. Just its a personal sensation because i dont like the dark places and everything was dark, the ilumination makes you feel like in the 30*s o 20* years, but that is the intention..i Know.

Great value. It was fun, like staying at a friend's house. I was perfectly happy to work with the smaller size of the space in order to be able to not spend a fortune, because in NYC you're not going to be sitting around in your hotel anyway. Very cool and hip. AWESOME bath products... I can't get enough of... More

The Bowery House is in a great area and the facilities are also good. The shared bathrooms are very clean and the staff are helpful. We booked a full cabin and knew exactly what we were getting after looking on the website. The cabin was tiny, with no real room to unpack. The bed linen was clean and of good... More

Stayed for 3 nights, had read a bit about it before so I knew what to expect. I liked it, the complimentary ear plugs helped me sleep no problem and the location was great for me. The staff were all lovely. All in all, I'd definitely go back if I'm going to NYC on my own again.

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Nolita
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
