Location is probably one of the best in NYC. Area is plenty of character, very jazz and lively, with plenty of very good restaurants. Hotel is clean, rooms are not big but they are well equipped, staff is helpful and ready to give you all useful information you may need and breakfast is decent.

Room Tip: Try a room at higher floors and with some view on Washington square.

We stayed in the hotel with my mother right before I moved in to the NYU dorms as a freshman. The staff was always friendly. The rooms were really small but considering that this is New York you can't really expect bigger rooms for this price. The hotel was clean and in a very good location right next to Washington square park and the west village.

Shhh, don't tell anyone but this was the best choice I could have made for staying on my own in NY to attend a course in Soho. Food great, service, gym, tea/coffee maker, only thing they didn't fix for me was the weather! February was very very cold!

Stayed here with family for one week in February 2014.

This is a fantastic hotel in a great location, right next to Washington Square park.

The bel man Ronnie was an absolute credit to the hotel. He was so friendly and chatty, and even saved us time and money by explaining the best ways to get to places and how to go about visiting the tourist attractions. A delight to see every day.

The room was basic but nothing special. However, we found that it was extremely hot. Even with the window open, with temperatures hitting -5 outside, it was absolutely boiling through the night and we had to have the AC on which resolved the matter. (Yes we double checked there was no heating on). This was an absolute mystery as our friends in another room didn't have this problem.

However, we didn't spend long in the room as we were out and about enjoying NYC.

The self service breakfast had a good range of options, and was never too busy.

Despite the fact a couple of the receptionists were miserable, I would recommend the hotel to anyone.

This is perfect hotel in the Washington Square/NYU area. It offers a free breakfast (or, if you want a full menu and service, there’s a separate area in the restaurant for that). The rooms are small but serviceable. The bathrooms are fully functional (not always the case at even pricier hotels): we particularly appreciated the heaters near the tile floors because that meant, essentially, warm floors in the bathroom. Another small, but crucial item: a slanted grab bar in the shower. There’s complimentary wi-fi (the only small complaint is that one has input the passcode each time one begins a wi-fi session). The location is wonderful, conveniently situated near any number of restaurants and eateries. There’s a small gym. No pool.
