This hotel had everything we needed plus it was so handy to the Essex St. subway station. The room was small, (but who cares about that? We didn't come to NYC to spend time in the room!) but it was very clean and the bed was comfortable. AC was noisy, but didn't notice after walking 5-8 miles a day on tours, we fell asleep right away.
Front desk staff were helpful with transit instructions.
You should stay here. I'd recommend this place to anyone wanting a safe, clean place in an interesting area of the city.
