“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Honestly, the hotel has "charm" but the owner does not know how to run a hotel. There is live music every night (which -cool-) but they fail to tell you at check in that the band plays until 2am in the morning. My husband and I were on the 4th floor right in front of the elevator, and it was bad enough we could here the band through the floor, but then every time the elevator opened, it felt like we were sitting right in "the living room". We complained about the noise and they offered to change our room but would be unable to move us until the following day because they were "booked to capacity". The next night we met Toshi -the owner- and instead of acting like a professional he was galavanting around the lounge with his dog in one hand and a martini in the other. We were appalled by this behavior. We completely understood why the lounge was so loud at that point - because the man just wants to party!! Needless to say we will not be returning to the flatiron hotel. The whole idea of the place disgusts me. There is no consideration for the guest. And you can see it in the employees faces, they want to help but they CAN'T HEAR YOU!!

Our night at the Flatiron Hotel in August 2013 was awesome! We lucked into a last minute reservation there and ended up paying a fraction of the regularly advertised price. We didn't know what to expect. From the beautiful two story fish tank and opulent nightclub just off the lobby to the elegent room upstairs, this place was fun! Yes, you could hear the band in the nightclub until the wee hours of the evening and yes, you could hear the rumble of the subway beneath the building. But as someone who hates quiet, this was the place to be. My husband and adult son loved the t.v. in the bathroom mirror and the big screen t.v. in the room. Fun features included a doorbell in each room, a jacuzzi tub and automatic drapes. We loved having a drink in the nightclub and listening to the band. However, beware, there is a $40 minimum in the club and it is assessed in later hours when the club is full. I would not recommend this hotel to families with children under the age of 21 as the real attractions are things that can really only be appreciated by adults. The hotel is pet friendly. Actually, there is a dog that serves as mascot for the hotel and it is often on site.

Room Tip: No swimming pool. Not good for kids. Avoid this hotel if you like peace and quiet at night.

Great location for hotel Flatiron in new York, 3 blocks from mack's, 6 blocks from soho

great hotel with the nicest staff, highly recommended for stay in ny

rooms are small but very comfortable, lots of amenities especially TV in mirror in bathroom

Room Tip: Ask for rooms as high up as possible as during weekend lobby is a club with live band can be noisy

The Flatiron positions itself as a boutique hotel. We stayed in a queen room on the 10th floor which was comfortable but compact. Although we stayed six nights, we didn't really see or hear from any of the staff. The front-of-house was pretty absent. The website made a big deal of the rooftop terrace and bar with views of the Empire State Building, so it was a bit of a disappointment to find that was not open to guests, only private hire.

This hotel is ideally situated if you want to visit NY city. Our room was on the 10th floor and it was great, really big and comfortable. The staff is friendly. We would certainly consider going there again.

My fiance and I (29 and 30 years old) stayed at the flatiron hotel in August 2013. We stayed for 4 nights. Our rooms were on the 10th floor.
The rooms were very clean and the beds very compfortable. The staff were friendly. We had no complaints.
I give this hotel 5 points because for a 4 star hotel in New york I found that the rooms were big enough, it was very clean, and the whole "experience" was nice. Furthermore, since we booked via hotwire.com, the prices were also great.
The area we stayed at was quite central, without being overflowed with tourists right in front of the hotel (as in comparison to hotel right at times square).
There is also a roof top bar about 3 minutes away from the hotel which was amazing.

Room Tip: there is a band that plays every night until midnight. since our room was on 10th floor we did not h...

This is not a Hotel, It's a Night club disguised as a Hotel. We stayed there four nights in August and were put on the fourth floor. The music from the restaurant is so loud at night that you'll never get a good nights sleep. They brought us the last pair of earplugs left at the front desk but to no avail it was still noisy. We were finally moved to the sixth floor. The band that night must of been even louder because again we had another sleepless night. The employees were very apologetic but there is no way to resolve this situation because the hotel lobby isn't big enough to be separated from the restaurant and the rocking music. I have no idea why tripadvisor gave this place great reviews, it was our families worst nightmare!!!

Room Tip: I can't imagine there is a quiet room anywhere in the hotel
