“summer in NY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

The hotel is in a very convenient part of Soho, with many restaurants around and very close to the subway. Hotel personnel is friendly and helpful. There may be occasional noise from outside or the hallways.

The good: Clean and comfortable room in a great location.

The bad: Rooms are small, and my room near reception was very noisy.

I'd probably stay there again, but make sure you get a room that's quieter.

Stayed July 2014, traveled solo

This hotel has a great location for nightlife. With all the restaurants, Pub's and Music club's around. It's a lot easier when you can walk and don't have to take Taxis all the time. Only problem was noise of running water making sleep in my room impossible in the morning hours.

This was my 2nd stay @ The Gem. The staff are very warm, welcoming & helpful. Rooms are small, but the location is great. I wish the hotel would leave instructions as to how to work the TV, as well as a list of channels. I found neither on both stays, and my stays were 8 months apart.

We have usually stayed in Times Square, but this was a great location to avoid the congestion. Room was great and was a good value. Would definitely stay here again. My daughter and I went to NY for her trip before high school and had a wonderful time. Great proximity to subways too.

Nothing special to look at, and the facilities are pretty basic, however it is spotlessly clean. We loved the location as it was on the border of the lower east side and the bowery. Incredible service from Anthony on the front desk
