Liked: This is a hotel not a hostel and came with all the perks you would expect. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Location is close to Subway stations, making it easy to get to midtown and uptown. Right next to Chinatown and Little Italy so lots of good food. Plenty of bars and shopping. Had a great stay.

Disliked: Room was a little small and no elevator. Very minor complaints!

Liked: Firstly, the ability to share a room with three people, usually in hotels and hostels you can only share rooms with an even amount of people - this always causes issues for me. The location is amazing, you're at the border of Chinatown, Nolita, Nola, and Soho - which are, in my opinon, the best neighborhoods in NYC. Also, Greenwich village, East Village and Chelsea are just a walking distance away - which is exactly what you want if you're visiting the city. Sohotel is best if you've already been to NYC once and have already seen the sights (i.e. Times Square) and you want to really experience the city itself. Wandering around the neighborhood you find great restaurants, café's and shops. The hotel itself was really clean, the rooms were super nice, the beds were comfortable and the staff was friendly. The bathroom was maybe a little bit small, but normal in NYC standards. Loved my stay there and would definitely go back.

Disliked: Nothing.
