We picked this hotel for its location and its quality to price ratio, considering other people's reviews. We had no surprises : little Italy and Soho are really at a walking distance and the metro is right around the corner. Employees were nice and friendly. Rooms were very clean, everything was new and working but our room was a little too small for two persons. For example, you could only open one luggage, the other one had to remain vertical otherwise you couldn't walk around. There's only one closet for coats and pants. The bathroom was nice but again too small, except for the shower where you had plenty of space. The bed was comfy. We appreciated the tv: there was many channels and the flat screen was large and right in the middle of the bed.
The main problem with the room was that it was pretty noisy (which was not a issue for us as we brought earplugs) : there's a lot of traffic in the street, we were nearby the ice dispenser and the air conditioning was really loud and big.
The room service's breakfast is reasonably price but I would recommend to call to make the order, rather than leave your order on paper, as they didn't bring what we wanted. Also, they were late, so you might want to consider that if you're in a hurry (which we were not). The food was good.
We also tried the restaurant. Again, good value for money. The pastas were good but it took a while. The waiter was friendly. It was clean and the decor was nice.
As a conclusion, we had a really good stay, despite these small flaws, because we were aware of them and we knew we wouldn't mind them.
