The room was small, however clean and comfortable. It was sufficient for our needs, to sleep. The hotel is located in Greenwich Village close to the subways for both uptown & downtown transit. The hotel is old but I found it to be in great shape. The only problem was the traffic noise. Check to see if there are rooms... More

Perfect location for exploring the village. Busy area. Good bars nearby. Room was a bit run down and small bathroom but you get what you pay for. Quite noisy on the first floor, recommend you get one of the upper floors. Cash only. $160 for a twin room.

If you're looking for the Marriott Marquis, this ain't it. If you are looking for a budget hotel in an absolutely wonderful area close to subway stops (N, Q, R and soon to reopen 6) this is it. The rooms are small, clean and Spartan and contrary to the recent other reviews, I was told up front that it was... More

Okay so when I looked up the reviews for this hotel most people called it run down awful etc. Yes it's an old building thats fine with me. What I liked was the sleep quality, after all you're not suppose to stay in your hotel the entire time in NY right? If you're someone who is going to tour around... More

This hotel is creepy. They rent rooms by the hour and only take cash payment per day. The rates that are on hotels.com are higher than what you would pay if you called to book a room. If you don't mind sharing a wall with people engaging in illegal activities, then go ahead and stay here. It's cheap. It's also... More

Where does one start! The positive - it's in a really good location. End of positives. A CASH ONLY hotel (not made aware of this when booking) that required an up front settlement. The in-house ATM did not work (and the fee was $3 per transaction!), withdrew funds from a nearby ATM, but upon returning later in the evening found... More

While we entered a credit card via third party hotel site, this place is cash only, and rents by the hour. Working girl came in with her customer when we were checking in. Checking out in the morning.

We were staying at a nice midtown hotel for LESS than the St. Marks charges for a room with 2 doubles, but we wanted to be closer to our daughter's NYU dorm, so we decided to change hotels. HUGE mistake. Please do yourself a favor and don't walk, RUN away from this hotel. Prior comments have said "You get what... More

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
