I stayed there for a weekend and it was very pleasant. Coffee offered in the lobby and the receptionists were so helpful and sweet. If I ever go to NYC, I'll most likely stay here again. Can't beat the price!

Clean, quiet (besides normal traffic) and comfortable. We made a last minute reservation here and I was really impressed and enjoyed my stay. If I'm ever in the area again I'd stay here. The staff was super friendly and helpful too.

Went to New York for a small concert at the Rockwood Music Hall. This hotel was conveniently located 2 blocks away. Lots of choices for food and beverages nearby. Hotel staff was extremely helpful at all times. They offered to hold our bags after checkout so we didn't have to drag them around while sightseeing before out train left. Room...

The Lower East Side is EVERYTHING when you are a young traveler visiting NYC for work or pleasure and the Gatsby Hotel could not be more in the heart of it!

This hotel is in a great neighborhood that is close to restaurants (Katz's deli is a block and a half away), bars and within a 1/2 mile of Chinatown, Little Italy, the East Village, the Lower East Side, and SoHo's shops. Free WiFi in all the room and the staff is extremely friendly.

I stayed at the Gatsby on a Monday night. I found it on a website and chose it because it appeared to be inexpensive and close to my destination in the East Village of New York City. I was very pleasantly surprised. Check-in was very friendly and quick. The Gatsby turned out to be a boutique hotel, small and low-rise....

The room was underground. The first room that was assigned to me had a gap between the door and the wall: the light was entering from the corridor and the door was not properly closing. Furthermore, it was just in front of the elevator and the noise was unstandable. I was given a different room, however this was probably even...

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
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 wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
