Met with hostility instead of a glass of WINE. Lauren, the host not friendly. Furniture in room broken and could only get 3 channels on the TV. Not enough food for breakfast yet Lauren was eating her bagel! This place is more like a poorly run Bed & Breakfast not a hotel. You have to turn in the key every... More

We regularly visit friends who live in the Lower East Side and this is our go-to hotel. The location is convenient, the building is beautiful (if you like old; if you prefer sterile & modern this isn't the place for you) and the staff have been there for years. Rooms are a reasonable size (for NYC -- if you're used... More

On Tripadvisor you can find both strongly positive and strongly negative reviews of this hotel, and guess what – they are all of them true! There are plenty of things to like about it. The location is good – the area is full-on edgy New York, and if you're a middle-aged European suburbanite it really does set the pulse racing;... More

No need to visit the adjacent tenement museum after experiencing the Blue Moon, but if you do, it comes at a nightly rate twenty times higher than museum admission. Lured by the promise of a original boutique hotel with a spacious room, I was surprised to find a dank, dark (and I mean, dark) and sporadically decorated room with dusty... More

This is in NYC , prices will be high. The area is great . The property is overpriced . Not quirky in a good way.Mold, broken tv ( yes ,some of us like to see news and weather even in NYC), thread bare towels and sheets. Hotel and room smelled like carpet fresh. Disappointing accommodations in nice area. The employees... More

First I'd like to say that my reviews are always genuine but they are also my own personal opinion and my tastes might not be the same as yours. We travel a lot, all over the world. We usually try to stay in local houses so we can get to know the real area rather than the touristy bits. However... More

Found the hotel to be wonderfully charming and loved the quirkiness of it, this hotel is clearly not for everyone, as noted in other reviews, but we found it to be just the best with a great location and very helpful staff. The best thing for us was that is felt like a New York Hotel and not a chain... More

My wife had picked out three hotels in The Lower East side and I was left to make a final choice while she was busy with work. I chose The Blue Moon because I knew it's quaint appeal would please my wife. Arrived after a long and tedious flight (delayed due to mechanical faults, but better safe and late eh)... More

Firstly, everything other guests are trying to warn you about here is 100% correct according to our terrible experience this last week, they are NOT lying, although the manageress rudly claims they are! We recognise so many of the things other customers are saying about the hotel and the manageress in particular, and there is no doubt we have had... 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.
