“Blue Moon New York”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a quirky and unusual hotel in the Lower East side with historical interest as an original tenement house. Its opposite the Tenement museum in a lived in neighbourhood of little restaurants for brunch and dinner, near the subway. The staff are friendly and helpful and my room was big and comfortable, with a complimentary breakfast. If you want to pay a bit more the rooms at the top are more modern with views as they have built a few floors above the original.

We stayed 23rd-28th April and had no complaints at all, we had the `ella Fitzgerald Room` spotless with everything you could want including free wi-fi and breakfast, also very handy for the subway, you can be up to midtown in 10-15 mins easy, great hotel away from all the madness.bed was super comfortable...............

My stay was short, but Blue Moon will get return business from me. It was very comfortable, very much an old-style boutique hotel with a great vibe. If you need a break from chain hotels, and you need to be on the Lower East Side, you should consider it.

This hotel reels you in with its charming colors, artwork and architectural features. The lobby is a great place to relaxed with a cup of coffee or complimentary wine in the evening. It features art, artifacts found in the building, colorful pillows and a view to the street. We stayed in a deluxe room, as we had been upgraded for some reason. The room had old world charm and offered a balcony with a view of the bridge in the distance. The bed and bedding were very fine and offered a great sleep. There was noise from a night club on our side, but the heavy curtains did muffle it enough that it was not a problem and I have to emphasize that this is a quiet hotel. There is NO street traffic sounds at all, though it is located close to a busy street where you will find plenty of activities and the subway, so it is so convenient. We will definitely stay here many times in the future.

This small hotel is across the street from the Tenement Museum and fits perfectly into the neighborhood. I felt like I was staying in an apartment rather than a hotel. The room was clean and quite spacious. There is a balcony for my room.

Stayed here in January 2013 during the off season. Very impressed with the 1940's feel to the rooms. Spent a very comfortable evening there while checking out Little Italy and Chinatown. Very good value during the off season.

Booked this hotel following a mates recommendation... A spot on recommendation.

If you want a hotel with character, a neighbourhood with character and staff who are characters then this is the hotel for you.

Lower East Side offers plenty of fab places to eat and drink and with the metro round the corner from the hotel, the location is perfect.

I cannot praise the staff enough.

Breakfast is free (unlike many US hotels) and although basic, it is fresh and filling. There is access to the gym - although I'm not sure it extends to daily access for those who like to train regularly

Rooms are great, big and comfy.

If you are considering booking this hotel my advice would be ... do it!
