A retro hotel on lower East side. Somewhere between 1940-1960. Clean and large private rooms and a small "cute" Coffee shop when you walk in and check in. Hotel stay was planned to meet with an overseas visitor. If you like retro this is it----if not the hotel will disappoint as it will appear, as it should, old.

Our greenhouse club from Ohio State University booked this hotel mainly due to its dorm style rooms. We had 18 in our party and the bunk style rooms for 6 suited our needs and our budget. The hotel location was ok. We were visiting the low line lab so the location was great and the subway lines were close enough...

I used booking.com to reserve a room. First, the hotel twice denied my credit card even though it's fully functional. Then, they failed to honor the reservation policy even though the Rez was still valid. They gave my room away, left me stranded, were no help at all. A complete nightmare - leaving me without a room at 9 pm...

This hotel is in an amazing area and is located across the street from the Tenement Museum. It is a former tenement building itself, which has been transformed into a small hotel with 23 rooms, I believe. Some of the rooms are similar to hostel rooms, but most are private rooms. We had the Burns & Allen room and loved...

Stayed here for a night. The reception desk is pretty poor. The guy at the desk was not helpful at all. It's a very over priced hotel. I paid £242.00 for a night. For that price the least value hotel I have ever stayed in. From no angle it looks like a boutique hotel. My room was very basic. Nothing...

Just stayed one night, but it was clean, there was a bathroom in the room. All though the room booked was female only, for a total of 4 females, single bed. It was actually 3 bunkbeds with 6 females.

As far as I can tell this is a cross between a hostel (except staff are clear it is NOT a hostel) and a hotel .

Stayed here for three nights in a mixed room, which was a perfect size and cleaned everyday and fresh towels and bedding. The staff are super friendly and very helpful. The hotel itself is really beautiful and is in a perfect location. Two subway stations really close to the hotel and loads of great shops around for anything you need....

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
