My stay at the Bowery House was just perfect! Easy check in/check out, could leave my key at the front desk so I wouldn't lose it and someone was there 24/7 to assist me if I needed anything. The rooms were small but I am pretty short (5'2) so had no issues with the size of the bed, which I... More

I stayed at The Bowery House for ten nights and loved everything about it. The concept, the decor, the history, the staff, the amenities, the location- I couldn't have asked for more. The only problem with The Bowery House is something out of their control and that is the noise, outside and inside. You're basically in a huge room with... More

We arrived at the Bowery house after a long day travelling to find that the room we had been allocated was actually a construction site. The roof was covered with a plastic tarp (that had holes in it) and was open to the air -- this is mid winter. The fact that this wasn't mentioned to us prior to booking... More

After we spoke I adjusted your bill (twice) and issued the refund as soon as you said you were unhappy. Our goal is to make our guests comfortable and help them to enjoy New... More

As long as you know what you're in for, you're gonna have a great time. The price is right, and the rooms are secure. I stayed at the Bowery House for a week in an Original Cabin. These are purportedly the cabins used to shelter veterans when coming home from WWII. I'm 5'11" and the bed was smaller than I... More

I did like the rest of you and read reviews before booking a "room" at The Bowery House. To start, the rooms are not rooms but rather closets. Not the spacious walk-in kind, either. I am average height, if anything a little short, and my feet hit one wall and the top of my head the other. The reviews said... More

Dear Lizy M, Thank you for your review. Our cabins are historic NYC accommodations. We offer clean and affordable accommodations in one of the most expensive cities. If our Original Cabin did not work for you, we suggest one of our larger cabins. I am very sorry about the missed wake up call. Our staff is professional and dedicated to... More

Was a lovely stay in a lively part of town! Great and helpful people. As soon as I got there I was greeted by smiles and someone who was willing to answer all of my questions. It was easy arranging cabs with them as well. Overall, a very pleasant stay! Thank you!

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

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.
