Just returned from a week long trip to NYC where we were lucky enough to stay at the Jones Street Guesthouse. We picked the key up from Doma and found the apartment with no trouble at all. Despite having studied the charming photos quite carefully on the website before deciding to book the place, we were still surprised by just how nice and spacious the room was. I've never stayed anywhere that was even half as clean and comfortable as the Jones Street Guesthouse. The place is really cosy and is so much more welcoming than some overpriced, uptown hotel room. The bed was really, really comfortable and the recently refurbished bathroom was fantastic. We loved coming back here at the end of exhausting days in the city. The place was really quite and we weren't disturbed by anything. Jones Street itself is really beautiful and safe, with quick access to subways for trips uptown. Nearby restaurants offer the best pizza you'll ever eat. Our privacy was completely respected at all times and my only regret was not getting to thank Evelyn, our host, in person for a wonderful week in her outstanding guesthouse. I can't recommend this place highly enough and I can't wait to come back. The area was great, the room truly fantastic and the prices are very reasonable. Staying here really helped make our trip the trip of a lifetime.

Room Tip: We stayed in the first floor apartment

My Husband and I stayed at Jones B&B for six nights for our first time in NYC and the USA- and what a perfect introduction! The 1st floor apartment is extremely quaint (low ceilings, armchair, kitchen facilities, amazingly comfy bed) and felt like coming back to a real home after high energy days/nights out about in the city. We were delighted to just step out across the road to the very heart of Bleecker Street/Greenwich village- endless choice of great restaurants and great food shops where we could cook a meal on the odd evening (amazing cheese shop down the road). The icing on the cake was breakfasting at the owner's DOMA cafe every morning- fabulous choice, friendly staff and great coffee. Just perfect all round- we felt like New Yorkers! we hope very much to come back very soon! Thank Evelyn and family.

We stayed at Jones Street Guesthouse in early July. We were staying only four nights, less than the six night minimum, but we booked within their limit of three weeks before arrival and it was available so we managed to get in. We had the first floor apartment which was cheapest and luckily for us easy to get in to as we had six pieces of luggage we were dragging around. No stairs to deal with. It only cost us $210 a night which was at least competive with and usually cheaper than other hotel options in NYC that we looked at, few of which were in such a good area.

Lots of good things to say about Jones Street. First off, you really are in the heart of Greenwich Village. You can literally just walk out your door and you're right there in the middle of all the action. We walked most places but when we needed to could walk one block to two different subway stops and get most anywhere in the city from there. It was actually unusually difficult to get a taxi from there for some reason, but no matter, the subway is great. The apartment itself is simple but nice, with enough room and a perfectly comfortable bed and a recently redone bathroom.

We only went up to Doma once for the breakfast. It's a few blocks up, but well worth the walk and a couple coffees and pastries fit into the budget you get with the room. We wish we'd done it a couple more times.

There's really no reason to choose a hotel over this place if you can get in. The only hiccup was picking up the key at Doma, the keys are marked by number rather than which apartment you're renting and the Doma staff didn't know the difference, so be careful. We got lucky and took the #1 key which was the basement apartment that we'd booked.

Room Tip: The upstairs room looked like it had a narrow stairway going up so careful if you have lots of luggage. Basement might be better.

My husband and I decided to take our 3-year-old daughter to NYC for a family vacation. We were looking for a place with a kitchen and one that was in a cute neighborhood (not too touristy) but gave us convenient access to a lot of other neighborhoods. We found all of this at Jones Street Guesthouse.

We stayed in the 1st floor room, which is a small studio with 1 queen size bed (and we comfortably co-slept with our daughter). The building is old but charming and renovations had been made to make the accommodations comfortable. Evelyn (the owner) provided a ton of information on neighborhood markets and restaurants and activities to check out. She even provided us with 2 different babysitters to use during our stay (both were wonderful) so my husband and I were able to go out on the town a few nights. She was extremely thoughtful and would send me emails with suggestions on where to take our daughter and on the few days it rained, she let us know where local families took their kids on rainy days, and even provided us with 2 huge boxes of kids books and toys for our daughter to play with.

The guesthouse is in a wonderful location. It felt like you were right in the center of lots of fun shops and restaurants, but at the same time, it also felt like you were in a nice little neighborhood. Because there is a lot of exciting activity around this street, it got a little noisy on certain nights (which we expected because it's NYC!), but once we closed the windows and turned on the A/C, our room was peaceful and quiet.

We spent 8 nights here and absolutely loved it. Really great neighborhood that is walking distance (or a short subway ride away) to lots of wonderful places. Evelyn and her family are lovely and we would love to stay here again on our next visit to NYC!

We stayed in Jones Street Guesthouse for 7 nights. It was our first time in New York and we couldn't be happier with our accommodation. Jones Street is a relatively quiet street in an otherwise vibrant area with lots of cosy bars and small shops. The smoothie bar and Cones ice cream on each end of the street were frequently visited, and John's Pizza is just a few steps away. The subway stations are nearby, which made it easy to get around. The room (apt #1) is very cosy and has a lot of charm, as if it hasn't changed since the 60s. Despite this old charm, it's very clean and well kept and the bed is very good. After a long day of discovering New York we enjoyed coming "home" and having a cup of tea.
