Reviewed May 4, 2014

We stayed in this hotel just before Easter and we found it to be great value for your money. Granted, the rooms are small but when you are in NYC you do not want to spend too much time in your room anyways! The staff were really friendly and you get free coffee and tea in the mornings. There is no elevator in the hotel and they are currently undergoing some construction, but that did not affect us in any way. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Courtesy, clean, close to everything. You can find everything in soho, but if you have to move somewhere, it's easy! The hotel is cute, design, people is nice. International guests, any age. No elevators, but they will bring up your luggage. I hate elevators, so for me it's not a problem at all. Sure I'll come back!

5 of us stayed in this hotel over the Easter holiday. We had a great stay the staff were so friendly and helpful it really made our stay. Having no lift wasn't a problem as we had help with our luggage infact they carried all of them for us. Location is great, there is traffic noise but what do you expect staying in a city like NY. Wifi was great, coffee in the morning in the lobby was much appreciated. Would definitely stay here again we got to do so much in 5 day.

Great hotel. Had family room for our family of 5. Room for this number of people was a bit on the small side, but the staff were so friendly and helpful. Cheapest place we found with a family room in the location we wanted and would stay there again.

The hotel is value for money esp in the peak season.
Main points - convenient location, near 2 main subway lines, CLEAN modern new bathrooms, comfy bed. I liked the toiletries and toothpaste PLUS complimentary bottled water.
Friendly staff. NO lifts, small rooms. The linen was clean but there were minor stains. The room was serviced daily but maybe with the construction going on downstairs - there was dust ++. Free Wifi was good. I would recommend this place for the price, location and bathrooms. MAKE SURE u try to get top floor and Broome st side rooms, i reckon the lower floor and Bowery side would be a lot noisier.

Room Tip: Top floor. Broome st side.

Dear Valued Guest,

It is great to hear that you had a pleasant stay with us. Our value and location is definitely the best in town and we are happy you shared this with others.

We are glad to report that our efforts to improve our product will be completed within the next weeks. We are almost complete with installing brand new high grade sound resistant windows in every room. They really do the job! As you know, NYC is quite loud but this will reduce the outside hustle and bustle immensely!

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel! We hope you will come back and visit us soon.

My wife and I stayed at this Hotel in April 2014 over the Easter period. We choose it based on price ($1200 for 5 nights ) its location bordering on Little Italy and Chinatown and being reasonably close to subways.

We were initially disappointed upon arrival due to being put in a long and narrow 6 ft wide room with two single beds, despite having booked and paid for a standard room with two twin beds thinking we would have a larger room as shown on the website. The font desk staff however were sympathetic and after a chat with the manager we were moved to the correct room, which, whilst suffering some street noise, was satisfactory and had a good bathroom and the most comfortable beds and pillows.

This is a boutique style Hotel and is tastefully decorated, but do not expect too much in the way of amenities. The lobby and lounge areas are basic and there are no breakfast facilities, but there are plenty of good local restaurants so no problem there. There is no bar in the Hotel but there is The Randolph right next door, but it doesn't open until late afternoon. The free Wi Fi was OK and the flat screen TV was good.

A point to note is that there are no lifts or elevators so beware if you are on the upper floors and there are no safes in the rooms.

In generally it was a cheerful Hotel with helpful and friendly staff, and is centrally located for lower Manhattan.

Would I stay here again? - yes I guess I would.

Room Tip: Make sure you understand what room you are getting and note that the back rooms are the quietest.

The good:

The price of this hotel was quite good and we were excited when they offered a triple room as there was three of us. The hotel is well-located. Staff are helpful and pleasant. There is free coffee in the morning and free wifi (which is quite slow).

The bad:

When we arrived they were doing construction in the lobby but we couldn't hear it from our room. The room was extremely small (I'm talking even with NYC standards) and the room had no window, save for a skylight, which had no blind. So at sunrise every morning, the room became so unbearably bright you wouldn't be ablet to sleep anymore. Also, the setup of the light switches is ridiculous. The bathroom light is operated by the master switch which powers the entire room (outlets and all). So if you want to charge your phone overnight or turn on the AC you have to leave on the bathroom light. There's no elevator so be prepared to walk a lot of stairs.
