We stayed at the Leo House based on a recommendation from a friend who said it was reasonable and in a great location. True on both counts. You walk out the door right into the action of lower Manhattan; close to subways and restaurants. Initial reaction was good, with a well-maintained, clean lobby and friendly and accommodating staff. It's an old building, like many in NY, and had its quirks. Our room was small with two twin beds (I had requested a single bed, so our breakfasts were comped for the mistake). However, there was a lot to be desired about the room. The paint and plaster were chipped. In fact, the entire floor (6th) needed a good painting. The grout in the small bathroom needed cleaning, there were the irritating spring-loaded faucets in the sink that don't stay on and, the weirdest part, there was an old radiator heater mounted high in the shower! The shower head was broken making it difficult to take a shower. The only room amenity was an old tube TV. No frig, micro or coffee maker (though the hotel rules state no food in rooms, the staff allowed us to take some up). Despite those issues we enjoyed our stay, primarily due to the great staff and location.
