“Great family hotel”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

It's difficult to find an affordable hotel room big enough for a family of five in Manhattan. The Sohotel delivers! Although there wasn't room for much more than the two doubles and one single bed, the room was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The free wifi was a bonus. Many great restaurants within an easy walk and several subway lines nearby. SoHo was an area of Manhattan that we hadn't explored on previous trips so it was nice to see a different part of the city. Highly recommend this hotel for families. Caution: there is no elevator so be prepared to walk!

Nice Hotel well located. Many bars and restaurants in this area. Hotel is very clean and we enjoyed our stay there for sightseeing in a group of 5 girls. And the rooms have enough space. Additional toilet and shower available and make it easier for a 5 bed room.

We had to stay at this hotel after finding out that our reservation in another hotel had been cancelled.

This hotel is very well located in SoHo, near Broadway and subway stations.

The staff was friendly, clean bedrooms, comfortable bed and a good shower. There was free wifi available.

They don't serve breakfast, but there's a Starbucks and a bakery on Broadway, about two or three blocks away.

I stayed in a room in the back of the building and could sleep well - heard no noise at night.

Be aware that there are no elevators and no phones in the rooms.

If you're driving, ask about a discount on a parking lot nearby and don't forget to stamp your ticket at the hotel reception desk. Don't forget to mention that you are a Sohotel guest to the valet, otherwise they'll charge full price.

1. Check In took around 45 minutes which is irritating.
2. No Elevators
3. Very small rooms
4. So much noise on the streets from 5AM in the morning
5. No telephones in the rooms

Very bad experience overall...

Room Tip: Choose rooms on ground floor as there are no lifts in the hotel

The hotel is well-positioned, particularly if you like Chinese food. It is slightly hostel-like in the impression it gives - coffee and tea, very welcome, but served in the hallway. My room was small but comfortable and the free wi-fi worked very well. Reasonably priced for NYC.

Room Tip: Get a room on the Broome St side- those on the Bowery are noisier.

Sohotel was a great place for a weekend trip to New York! The room was larger than expected, very clean and comfortable. The staff was extra friendly and helpful.
We loved the location. It is close to Little Italy's wonderful restaurants, and within walking distance to a nice bakery and the subway.
It is not a swanky hotel but a cozy place to rest after walking around the city.

I stayed at the SoHotel in New York for two nights only. The first night noisy
from the street was enormous. I couldn’t not sleep all night. Around 5 am in
the morning there were kids running up and down the hallway. The room wall were
unfinished and the quality of both beds in my room were terrible. I had to be
at work at 8:30am but since I could not sleep all night, I went to the front
desk and expressed my frustration. He then told me that I was lying. That I
had one of the best rooms of the Hotel and that the beds were new and
orthopedic. There was not even a telephone in the rooms. I went to New York
for a business matter and I didn’t have to use my phone all the time if they
have had telephones in the rooms.

After 20 minutes of argument, the second personal couldn’t take it anymore and
said that they would find me a different room. The room was not cheap, I paid
$578.00 for two nights. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to anyone.

The second room they gave me was indeed very quiet but again the beds were
horrible. I tried four beds in within two nights and two rooms and non of the
beds are in good condition to sleep.

In genera my NYC experience was good. I had lunch in the Broadway Dinners on
57th st, New York and it was excellent. I also went to a little bar beside
SoHotel called Radolph Beer and I had very nice steak strips and two dark beer
(Mad Jamaica Red A and the Lagunitas NTF) they were both very nice and I really
enjoyed that evening
