"This hotel was really nice. They were under construction, but it didn't affect our stay at all. We stayed in the largest room (for 5 people) and it was perfect for our one night stay in New York City. The location was…"

Liked: I arrived quite late in the day after a very long journey so was a bit delirious. The reception and porters were so friendly and helpful. I hired a phone from the hotel and there were a few teething problems with it and the hotel staff went out of their way to help me and were really professional about it all. I was also in a very hot room which I couldn't sleep in so they very kindly moved me free of charge to a cooler room. It was a really clean and welcoming hotel in a great location. The bathrooms could have done with a lick of paint and a few repairs but the bed was really comfortable and the room was really clean and much bigger than I was led to believe from other comments I'd read online. I was a lone traveller and felt safe in the area. Which is really close to Little Italy and Soho. I walked from the hotel all the way down Broadway to Central Park one day and all the way to Ground Zero another. It's really easy to get around on foot and the nearest subway isn't too far either. I would highly recommend this hotel to single or couples or as a friends weekend away.

Disliked: Only a very small thing - that the bathrooms could have had a lick of paint. Oh and there are no tea/coffee facilities in the room - but there is free tea/coffee/chocolate available in reception in the morning. And there are drinks/snack machines in the lobby too.

Liked: Fantastic atmosphere, great location, delightful staff, amazing room.

Disliked: A little noisy (noisy pipes and road traffic). It is also next to a fire station which resulted in sirens at all hours of the morning. Nothing a pair of earplugs won't fix and the pros certainly outweigh the cons.

Liked: The rooms were clean and had good facilities such as a large television and iPod docking station. The rooms were cleaned daily and the maids were very polite and regularly asked if we needed anything. The reception staff and porters were always very helpful when asked to recommend places to eat or asked to book taxis.

Disliked: The food vending machine did not work for the duration of the stay. Communal wash rooms could be kept slightly cleaner.

Robert Sedivec

Liked: I booked double room for more than USD 150. The room was clean however the space was increadibly tiny with smaller than queen size bed not able to accomodate me, average sized european, so I can not imagine how 2 average sized americans can use it and be happy (as the lady at reception says). I had to add 35 USD extra to have a bigger room...

Liked: Sohotel is in a great location, its just few blocks to china town, few blocks to little italy and few blocks to Soho, so its in the middle of everything. You can find nice clubs, good restaurants and all the shoppping places just walking max.1km. Our room was really nice decorated, it was really small, BUT for the price we paid it was fine with us, as we are in new york we dont want to spend the time in the hotel room. We felt very safe in the hotel and in the area where the hotel was located. The only thing that i can say negative was the staff: There were few women and few men who were really really nice and knowing what they do, but many of the staff was too young and actually didnt know the most simple things as for example where to get the NY city pass and actually didnt have anykind of enthusiasm to be more helpful and recomend places etc.. But in the end in New York you find everything by yourself, so it was not actully a big problem. It was nice that our room was everyday clean and we got clean towels everyday. For the cheap price we paid, this was a great option!!
