My sister and her husband rented it for his 60th birthday and wanted to put up friends and family. In fairness, the location is awesome. No doubt about that. That's the only nice thing I can say. Some of the problems- The bathrooms were not all functioning. There was no table, the main bedroom bed was broken. the majority of... More

I stayed at the Soho Loft with 8 of my friends for an engagement party. My stay here was absolutely amazing. Each of my friends and I slept comfortably at night and were able to Party at night! Everything was clean and renovated and I felt right at home. I would highly recommend this space for any type of event!

We stayed at The Soho Loft about a month ago and had a wonderful time! I was traveling with 10 friends and it was between this or a 3 star hotel we found in midtown so we decided to change it up a bit. The loft is in the most amazing part of Manhattan! If you are not familiar with... More

For those of us who know New York City it is quite hard to find a quality place to stay that is in a great location, without spending a fortune! I came across The Soho Loft and booked it for a few of my friends who were coming in from out of town. The loft was extremely affordable, in the... More

The worst accommodations I have ever seen. The bedrooms were closets without windows. Incredibly hot and noisy. I slept on a towel rather than in the bed. Bathrooms were in very poor shape. Common area was not even close to as pictured! Little furniture and lots of dirty dishes. This was just BAD BAD BAD!! Never again. I am still... More

Beware. The property manager (who lives with you in the space) will change any agreement at anytime. We were promised breakfast every morning which she decided not to do. We were promised that we could leave our bags in the space after check out time because most of our group was leaving in the evening. She decided that would not... More

Small, dark, poorly ventilated rooms; horribly mean and angry loft manager (who lives on premises). OK, first the (only) good point: the common area is very large spacious, and sort of looks like the pictures on the website. That's where the good stops. Aside from this common space, the rest of the loft is parceled up into tiny rooms with... More

The Soho Loft is a “B&B” by only the most limited definition and only if you plan on being there between 1 am and 3 pm. My husband’s first reaction was that the loft had been a former massage parlor. I have no idea where the people giving positive reviews of this place stayed. Our bedroom was a shabby, stuffy,... More

This place is terrible. 2 bathrooms for 7 sliding glass door storage rooms, and only one has hot water. No windows in room, suffocating heat. The Chinese woman who ran it was mean. The finger print door mechanism took 10 times to work. Someone is making a killing with their misleading website. Its better to sleep on the street.

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
