The room we reserved had no heat. (It was February and around 15 degrees) I asked the clerk if any of the other rooms had central heating that worked. She said it was a “Con- Ed” issue and that only the suites on the top floor had heat. She brought us an electric space heater but 2 hours later the... More

We stayed at this small artist-themed hotel in December 2014. A wonderful stay at a reasonable price. Only a few subway stops from Times Square and 30 Rock. The staff was kind and helpful, recommending restaurants and shops in the area. I'd definitely stay again. Don't go if you are expecting "posh", but if you want a true East Village... More

This is a cute hotel in a great neighborhood in Manhattan...a hidden gem that is warm and comfortable with very reasonable pricing. They even had a Chanda house in the basement for Jews who wanted to celebrate Shabbath......the service was amazing with a great group of people and a great rabbi and his family. Thanks for the great stay again... More

My second stay at the Blue Moon Hotel was as comfortable as the first. Their Lower East Side location is in the middle of great shops and restaurants. Also, I made use of their convenient and reasonably priced car service. The Mickey Katz room, where I stayed again, is clean & spacious plus has a beautiful view (especially of the... More

I came to this hotel on a leisure trip after hearing from a family member about the different experience it would afford from the typical chain hotels. I loved the charming, clean lobby that really gave the feel of the building that it used to be while providing a calm and peaceful setting. The artwork and design of the building... More

I haven't actually stayed here yet but after having read all the reviews , my fiance and I have decided to make this our honeymoon spot! The few bad reviews I've seen were really not consistent on their complaints. I love the charm this hotel shows in the pictures . We could have stayed at a fancy smancy hotel but... More

Arrived after a long trip from Europe by a very hostile woman who turned out to be the owner. Manager at the desk was much better. I had booked through hotels.com so it was already paid. When I asked for a room with a sofa I was told it would be an up charge, even though on hotels.com the rate... More

The hotel's owner is not on the premises. This is but the first of several false claims in this review. We are confident you were warmly greeted upon your arrival and departure by our professional, attentive staff. In fact, when you inquired as to upgrading from the basic Pied-A-Terre guestroom that you booked, to accommodations with a sofa, we quoted... More

I first noticed this lovely little gem during a Lower East Side walking tour several years ago as it's across the street from the Tenement Museum (a must-see.) Since I was returning to this part of Manhattan for an event, I decided to stay here - and it was delightful. Our room was clean and comfortable, the staff warm and... More

As an ex-New Yorker who moved abroad just six months after the towers fell back in 2001, I was pleasantly surprised to discover The Blue Moon Hotel while looking for a place to stay during a visit to my old stomping grounds last October. At first, I was a bit turned off by the idea of staying at a so-called... More

My husband I stayed at the Blue Moon for two nights two weeks ago, and chose it due to location. It was a disappointing experience. As others have written, it is not properly cleaned -- the previous guests' garbage still in the room, floors not vacuumed, book shelf very dusty, bathroom floor not swept, holes in the sheets. We literally... More

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
