“Excellent hotel in Chinatown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We have enjoyed our 1 week stay in this hotel. The room is brand new and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast basic however sufficient to start you of for the day. Subway ( F train) very close to get you to midtown/uptown attractions. If you want to get a real NY feel during your stay this hotel is recommended. We will go back!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We spent one night (two days) in this SOHO HoJo and we were impressed by every detail of our visit. The staff were always polite and attentive to our personal needs. They seemed happy to be there and happy to have us as guests. The desk staff were well informed about the area and transportation. The hotel was clean and immaculately maintained from the attractive and comfortable rooms to the lobby, which was always clean, well lit, and comfortable. The breakfast bar was excellent with freshly cooked fried eggs, a nice choice of pastry items and cereals, coffee, and OJ.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good. We had a great view from the 11th floor.

VERY Small rooms, Price of $278.00 for a Shoe Box size was Disappointing, NO room to move in the Room, No Closets, Just Hooks on a Wall... My Wife was sending Her Daughter off to College, HOJO's Was the Closest Hotel to the College...

the bed was very comfortable; continental breakfast was average. I appreciated the clean room. The front desk was very helpful and accommodating. The room was small and did not have a closet to store items yet it was very practical and functional. Overall, the stay was pragmatic. The hotel is actually located in Chinatown even though it is advertised as SOHO.

Efficient, very polite and very helpful staff Clean with all facilities

It is billed as Howard Johnson SoHo but it is not in SoHo - you have to know NYC to realise that it is in the middle of China town, which means it is smelly and desolate at night

We chose this hotel following also what other guests said and we weren't deceived. The hotel is clean and really cosy, it's a new building with cool furnitures and style. The room we had was not that big, but had everything we needed: 1 big comfortable bed, great lights, big TV, nice toilet. Even if the view was on the noisy Allen street, it was well protected from it. Unfortunately, the area around is really smelly and I wouldn't go back to China town. It's a pearl in a ocean of mud.
