We stayed over Nov 2nd, 2018 at this hotel. The room was small but very clean. Beds were quite comfortable. It was a perfect location for us in the lower east side. The lobby personnel were pleasant and helpful.

Our room in the basement was very small and loud. The street noise included the voices of people who walked by our window. We could everything they were saying. Street noise was pronounced. The room was the smallest hotel room we have ever stayed in.

Friendly and welcoming staff and conveniently placed for the subway. Rooms were small but had the necessary conveniences. Had a room on 3rd floor and could hear when traffic outside was noisy, but not too bad.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighborhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
