This place is quite scary. We didn't have a chance to book a good hotel or hostel beforehand, so it was the only place we could afford due to our budget. When we arrived, the neighborhood made me already scared. It's near to the metro station, but when you first see this place, you can't believe these kind of hotels... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Despite it being very old, and the room being kind of small, it was a charming place to stay at. The staff were very friendly, and the location of the hotel was just perfect. The place was a bit dirty, but you get what you pay for!

My date(s) of stay were much earlier than June of 2007. I actually stayed there in 1999, and again in 2000. In those days, hanging on the wall in the lobby, were a series of b&w photos...circa 1912. The photos featured primarily, seaman. They had just arrived in Manhattan. They were some of the survivors of the Titanic tragedy. Atop... More

Do not stay here. Unless@ - you like drug-addicted prostitutes and drug dealers on your doorstep - the worst sized and poorest quality rooms you will ever experience - the fear of death being overwhelming I could go on but what's the point? read some of the reviews here and you will know I'm right...

I spent a week at Hotel Riverview and it was everything I expected. Rooms were tiny but cheap. Location is amazing. The hotel still has a hint of old-time New York that welcomes the ones who don't belong to any other city. Amazing mixture of personalities from all walks of life.

By a conservative estimate, I've probably stayed at The Riverview at least 100 days over the past 11 years. I've stayed there during the summer, I've stayed there during the winter. I've stayed on every floor but the 2nd ( which is where the best showers and toilets are located, by the way). I do not hail from a third... More

I never stayed at the Hotel Riverview but live in the neighborhood. Believe all the negative reviews. This place is downright scary. There are drug addicts and transgender prostitutes that frequent here. I always feel sorry for the unknowing tourists I see arriving outside this hotel. STAY AWAY!

we had to buy thick blankets first to lie upon, because the place was so filthy and the scheets holeridden and disgusting. We had already paid for 3 nights, but checked out in the morning anyway(without a refund). My friend was bitten by bedbugs in his room, I was lucky. Pay a little bit more and stay somewhere else(anywhere).

Unfortunately, New York doesn't offer much in the way of budget accomodations. Hotel Riverview is one of the few places you can crash for a reasonable price. You won't, however, feel as if you've received a bargain. Let me describe the experience for you. At the check-in desk you'll be treated either rudely or with indifference You'll have to speak...

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
