    Individual guest reviews

    • Excellent value and location, near enough to subway stops, china town is litterally just across the street. This boutique hotel is amazing and the staff are amazing, helpful and friendly. All rooms are completely painted, the complimentary breakfast is simple and setup and facilities aside, be aware of the lack of cleanliness.

      Really closed to restaurants shops in a safe district and this place ROCKS and is not all that expensive. The reception is at the first floor and the entry is not very nice, the price we end up pay is double of Internet price.

    • I liked the location and absolute good stuff. Friendly and helpful staff, very cool room. Breakfast and service excellent.

      The price is ridiculously cheap for such a centrally located hotel, the tiny bathroom sink reminded me of tiny bar bathroom sinks in NYC.

      Oddly site does not warm you about the hotel art and small bathrooms. Free breakfast is never a bad thing.

    • Unbeatable location near union sq and many nearby good restaurants. One of a kind place and excellent price. I loved the style, staff very helpful and room was small and bed was not the most comfortable.

      In short hotel was more like a shabby boarding house and also the water pressure was very very low.

    • The location was excellent, the hotel was one of the cheapest I could find that was central and the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was awesome.

      Bathroom smaller than small and the elevator very bad. Breakfast a little basic, old European feeling.

    • The location is good and the atmosphere is nice original. The front desk doesn't have a welcoming attitude and rooms are clean and staff are friendly. The breakfast is very very simple and there are not even tables.

      A restaurant bar is located under next to the hotel, is very noisy before midnight.

    • The location was excellent, hotel was clean and the art decoration in our room was interesting. The staff were also great and the employees were very friendly. Bed was very comfortable and breakfast in the morning was more than adequate.

      Old building, not worth the money and shower stall was small and unacceptable.
