Sohotel
Ranked #257 of 469 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed 9 April 2014

We were in NYC for a conference at NYU and stayed at the Sohotel.

The hotel is on a quaint intersection, so we actually did not hear the street noise mentioned in previous reviews. The location is extremely convenient to get to--two different subways within a 3-minute walk, SoHo and Chinatown just minutes away.

We had a room with two king size beds that was enormous by New York standards. Beds were clean and very comfortable. No bedbugs! The room was neatly furnished with ample closet space and an old wooden desk. The bathroom was meticulously cleaned and the water pressure and temperature were fantastic.

Hotel staff were very helpful and always willing to help out, whether it was holding a door open or carrying a suitcase up the stairs. Free coffee and tea by the reception and free WiFi throughout were nice touches. Take note that there is no elevator and you will have to walk up at least one set of stairs to get to reception and the first set of rooms.

This hotel is lovely and extremely clean. The rooms are fairly small, as noted before, but the street noise kept us up most of the night. I'd go again, but request a room in the back. The bed was really comfortable -- too bad we had so little sleep on it! The price was terrific and the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the street.

Will stay here every time I come to NY.

Right in between 3 train stations, you can get almost anywhere in manhattan or brooklyn in 10-15 minutes.

Also whether you're into Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Italian, Mexican or even Cuban food this area has it all.

At 230am I needed to make some calls to Australia and get dinner. Conveniently Pedro on the front desk got me connected in seconds, then tee'd me up an amazing delivered local Italian pizza.

Even expensive hotels rarely have service this good.

Small rooms but they're nice.

It's a nice and clean hotel for a good price in central location. It's a little noisy because of the traffic outside.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. Free coffee and tea is available at the lobby.

we love this funky, convenient, clean, modernized hotel. We've also learned to avoid rooms beginning with 2-- these are directly above a bar with music on weekends. Staff were very polite and efficient.

We are a family of five just back from our one night at this hotel. It was very clean, comfortable and attractive. They were quite accommodating and took our bags, though couldn't check us in, at around noon. We happened by at 2:30 and again were told no check in until later (check in time is 3pm.) We found this a bit unaccommodating but had to admit that we were early a second time. We did eventually check in and were put in a room on the second floor, streetside. At 10:30, with three exhausted kids, we were more than ready to turn in. However, we realized that we were directly over a nightclub, and the noise and music carried on until 4 am, at which time a giant fight broke out in the street, and we didn't sleep until 5am or so. It is entirely possible that the hotel didn't have any other rooms to give a family of five, and I will give them the benefit of the doubt (our friends stayed on the 3rd floor, off the street, and didn't hear much at all.) However, given that they also were not willing to accommodate us at 2:30 pm for a slightly early check in, we will not recommend this hotel and will not stay again. There are too many other options in NYC for us to take a second chance on Sohotel.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms off the street.

Thank you Lesley for your review! We are very glad that you found our accommodations clean, comfortable and attractive. We do our best and pride ourselves on keeping our accommodations extremely well maintained. I am glad it shows!

We are indeed sorry that some outside noise disturbed you. Unfortunately, there is only so much we can do about pedestrians who walk down our street. This is common in major cities such as NYC. We are taking major steps within the next few months to limit this by installing brand new windows with increased sound proofing throughout our entire building.

As a general policy, our check in time is at 3PM as stated on our website. Although, we do advertise check in at 3PM our front desk is trained to give rooms for check in as they come available from housekeeping. We do hope you understand that it is never that we do not want to accommodate but that your room must just not have been ready. In the future we recommend adding special requests so that we can have notice of arrival time and do the best we can to accommodate.

We hope to win your business back and thank you again for your review.
