“Great location, no service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2010

We recently stayed at Signature Mini Suites Of Minetta New York. The location is fantastic, subway around the corner West 4th St station. Located in Greenwich Village you are close to some great restaurants and convenience stores. The room itself is basic. The bed was comfy, there is no soap or shampoo etc. We did have a spare set of sheets in the cupboard. The towels were not changed during our stay nor was our room serviced. In fact I saw no staff in the 10days I stayed there. There is no lift in the building so if you are not capable of carrying your cases up stairs this is not for you. The building and our room needed some maintenance work. In saying this I would stay they again purely because of the location and $$. If you want no frills - this place could work for you.

This really is nothing more than 3 star accommodation. Very small, no elevator, BUT comfortable bed, TV, bath, plenty of hot water, rooftop terrace, and most importantly, fabulous location. We stayed 5 nights and I really felt like I was living like a local. Close to NYC so some good value for money restaurants nearby too. As long as you are not looking for luxury you will love it. We would definitely stay again.

Hey, it's New York - this place was tiny, with some nice touches (mirrors, deep bathtub, enough hot water), but also had some minor broken stuff (no way to hang up the shower head, so it had to be handheld, a missing lightbulb, a broken fixture, only 1 hanger in the closet) but nothing huge. It is good if you want to reheat leftovers or cook very very simple things (2 pots, a tea kettle and a giant espresso machine in my room). It's got a great location, was clean enough, and once you know that you have to call to check in, it was pretty great. I'd recommend it to those who need to cook a bit, but not anyone who can't manage a 4-floor walk-up. It was a great deal for NYC and its location.

We stayed at Minetta Mini Suites for 1 week in March 2009.

Like most places in New York the room was tiny but luckily we found a cheap deal which included a small single room where we could keep our luggage. We still had to crawl over the bed or turn sideways to get from one side of the room to the other. The rooms are no frills and in need of some attention but the bed was comfortable and the bathroom worked. Unfortunately we had a ground floor room with a very bright street light outside the window which did not switch off until 7.00am - it lit up the whole room and there wasn't much we could do about it. It was also very noisy with people coming home from the pubs on Bleeker Street and from the trucks/taxis on 6th Ave.

The location is brilliant and shows you a little of what it would be like to live in New York (albeit in a dog box). The subway is a few minutes away, Broadway 10 minutes and we walked to Times Square a few times in about 30-40 minutes.

The office staff were very friendly and we had no problem with the door codes. We did make sure we called their offices before we left for NY to make sure they had the booking and that we understood the check in procedure which helped. They also let us store our luggage in their offices after check out which we really appreciated.

You have to pay for the internet service in the rooms and the signal was very poor from the ground floor. There is an Aroma Cafe on Houston about a 5/10 min walk away which has free internet (if you have your own laptop) and has reasonable coffee. The bagel cafe across 6th Ave was nice but the Mexican restaurant next door to the suites was appalling quality, overpriced and we had a spectacularly rude waiter.

We wouldn't stay here again as we found it a little depressing for a holiday - we'd rather go to a hotel next time but it was good value for money and a good base from which to explore NY.

This hotel was in a great location in Greenwich Village, right in the heart of things, easily accessible by subway and around the corner from tiny streets filled with independent cafes and restaurants. You definitely felt like you lived in NYC for a few nights, as you have your own doorcode to come in and out of the building. You have to call before you check in, and sign in at an office down the street, but then the hotel room / apartment is yours. It was very cute - old style with fireplace (not working) and great wooden floors, but renovated with new amenities like a flat screen tv, cappuccino machine, and nice modern bed and linens. A few problems included a broken hand-held shower head in that it didn't attach to the wall, a broken jet tub that wouldn't "jet," and no toiletries (i.e. no soap in the bathroom or in kitchen for washing dishes. Otherwise, very lovely. The heater made some noise at night, but not enough to keep us awake. Great rooftop terrace to lounge on in the late afternoon. Would definitely recommend it.

Hard to review this place. The room was extremely tiny but lovely and clean. The location was fanatastic with free street parking within blocks. Now that i know what to expect I would go again... BUT... before you book you HAVE TO KNOW - there is no check-in desk, no on-site staff, no SIGN outside or even an address. The only reason we found it was because of the picture we saw of the building on-line. When they say check-in is at 3, that means wait oustide until the guy/person shows up at 3 to let you in.
There are phone numbers listed inside the door but none of them get you anywhere. OK, I'm sure you're turned off, but again, the room was lovely (tiny but clean) with a Euro kitchen and a court yard in the back, the street is sweet and relatively unknown even to seasoned New Yorkers, though it is off of MacDougal Street in the West Village. There is a Mexican restaurant next door that had great food and margueritas. You get what you pay for and for $150 on a holiday weekend, we were thrilled! Bring soap, shampoo, etc.

My daughter and I have travelled to NYC several times over the last year and this is the best value we have found. If you have never experienced NYC accomodations this place would definitely scare you off due to the wacky check in procedures and the drunk guy with a foreign accent who lets you in the door after phoning the numbers listed inside the front door. That aside, the room is a definite value considering you get the wall of kitchen ( micro, refrig, coffee maker, and sink) beside the bed. NYC is not the place for value. A 2 star hotel is smaller and offers less in the room than Minetta. I like the neighborhood and the access to the 4th St. station is convenient. You land at the suite just out of the Holland tunnel which cuts drastically down on the dreaded NY driving scene. Easy in easy out. Minetta Lane and Minetta St. are tranquil. Amazing that you can be in the big apple and turn down this street to complete tranquility. Try the Washington Square Diner for breakfast and the Whole Food across from Washington Square for groceries.
