“Great location galore”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

The location of Hotel East Houston is what makes it so great! On the corner of East Houston Street with Eldridge, it's exactly on the border of the Lower East Side and the East Village. Just a few blocks away from the Bowery, SOHO, NOHO, Nolita and with only a minute walk to the subway (F-Train: 2 Ave) it's only three stops to DUMBO, Brooklyn (York Street). The neighbourhood is really fantastic!

The rooms of the hotel are really small, but what else do you expect in NYC. They are really clean, the bed is good and the bathroom as well. There is no fridge though. Staff is extremely laid back, nice and helpful. But the best thing about the hotel besides the location, is the rooftop terrace! Great views! Go get yourself something nice to eat and drink at the huge Whole Foods organic supermarket around the corner, or a bagel with lox and a schmear from Russ & Daughters and settle yourself on the rooftop.

The reason why I don't give five stars is because they skipped breakfast since this year. Such a shame. We came here twice before in 2009 and 2011 and really enjoyed the free breakfast that you could eat in the cellar or at the rooftop. Now you have to eat somewhere in the neighbourhood. Plenty of choice though. (Zoe on Eldrigde, or Blue Bird across the street on First Ave) Between 08.00 and 16.00 you can get yourself some coffee and tea in the cellar, but after that there's no possibility for drinks. A vending machine would be nice.

Room Tip: Rooms on East Houston Street are more noisy than the rooms on Eldridge Street but have a way better...

Hotel East Houston is a great place to stay for comfort, convenience and enjoyment. We loved how close it was to so many burrows of NY. Only a few minutes to Brooklyn, Time Square, Tribeca, Meat Packing etc. the hotel is quiet, warm and safe feeling. The staff are all so very friendly. We loved East Side and would certainly recommend this hotel. Wish the weather was not so cold as the rooftop area has an awesome view.

Room Tip: Corner Room or room on Houston St side was great. No noise which was surprising.

Not the best location, but it is accessible to subway, east village, soho, etc. and easy spot to get a cab. Great lobby, rooftop deck, and breakfast/computer lounge in basement. Rooms were basic and small - European sized. Platform bed was adequate, but not plush comfy. Good for the price, as NYC hotels go.

Walking distance to East Village. Hotel staff friendly and eager to assist. Three night stay, the smallest hotel room we've had in NYC. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate are the only beverages available for guest and a trip to lower level to get.

This is a very simple, affordable hotel conveniently located in Soho. This hotel is located close enough to Soho shops you can easily walk and drop bags within 10 minutes.

Additional benefits of the location – it’s a block away from a Whole Foods, which saved me money on food, across the street from a subway stop, and a couple of blocks from Katz Deli (which is fantastic).

This is a well located, clean, no frills hotel. I’d stay here again.

Room Tip: Elevator is maybe the slowest in any hotel I've stayed in. Lower floors may be better since if...

This was a great little hotel right on Houston street. The bus was right outside and metro was 4-6 blocks away. January was low season so the price was right. It can get very price in the Summer months since you can walk to so many great areas. Very nice roof top patio to relax and check out the skyline. Friendly front desk staff. Rooms are very small with no side chair or desk. Closet is very small for 2-3 items only. Stay here for the location, not the room.

Room Tip: The rooms higher up and not on Houston street are quieter.
