Ranked #255 of 469 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed 22 August 2014

We stayed at Sohotel for one night. Well the price is little bit pricey but its New York!! Location is great, its near the travel tour that we booked. Decoration in the lobby is great and staff were really nice and helpful also. you get free coffee and tea in the lobby. Free wifi including in the rooms. I booked double bed queen, beds were comfortable and bathroom was clean also. There is no elevator in the hotel but staff help us. The bad: the A/C very loud, and we can hear our next room (wall pretty thin) ;).

Room Tip: ask room with less A/C noise.

Very clean hotel with bright upbeat rooms with character. Wonderful, friendly staff. The bathroom was immaculate with c.o. bigelow toiletries, not what I would have imagined for the price bracket. The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable. The hotel was perfect for our needs. The hotel is right on the edge of the bowery and steps away from little Italy and Chinatown, not soho proper. There isn't an elevator and coffee/tea facilities are in reception and not in the room. The area is a little noisy at night, there is a popular bar next door. We simply turn the air conditioner on low, and had no problems sleeping.
If these factors are not detractors, you will love the hotel and the savings!!!

Great location with easy access to multiple subway stations. Rooms weren't huge but were big enough for what I needed. Staff were helpful and friendly. Would have no issues recommending this hotel to any friends looking for somewhere to stay

We love the Village, SoHo and Little Italy but have never found a great place to stay that we could afford - til now. Room was very clean and a decent size...with handy touches that make hotel stays easier- long counter top, lots of hangers and outlets and terrific toiletries. Staff was lovely, Internet worked perfectly, public areas cool - and the price was great!

The Sohotel is a great boutique hotel, very good located in between China Town and Little Italy, close to plenty of great restaurants and bars as well as close to several Subway stations.
However, the rooms are small and with a family of five even the Family room wasn't spacey enough - from the other hand we were not in the room other than for sleeping - so it did the trick.
For the room size, the lack of breakfast, the lack of an elevator/lift ... it is a bit overpriced.
Also - no safe in the room - only in the storage room - it will be a great improvement to get the safes in the room themselves.
Last but not least - first time ever I've been asked to pay for the whole stay in advance...

Room Tip: The hotel does NOT have rooms in the ground floor, only first floor and over - and there is NO Lift...

We stayed at Sohotel last year, so my review is a bit belated, but alright. First of all, we flew in from Europe and forgot to call our bank, so our credit card was blocked and we couldn't pay the full stay of a week upon arrival. However, the staff was helpful and understanding and we payed cash for a night and solved it the next morning. The rooms were EXTREMELY small, and the first two days we only had cold water which took the hotel a while to fix, very annoying. Not to mention that our room had a view on Bowery, and the street noise was almost unbearable. 'The city that never sleeps' is a well-deserved nickname. But the friendly staff, nice lobby interior and location kind of make up for it. Not to mention our rooms, and the hotel in general, were always very clean. The lobby was very inviting and had a cozy atmosphere. The hotel was just a short walk from the amazing shops on Spring Street, Chinatown was around the corner, and it was close to the New Museum too (the best contemporary art museum in New York, definitely worth a visit!)
It was near the subway stations of Grand Street & Bowery and Spring St. was also close to the hotel. Very easy to get around the city. I assume due to the limited size of the hotel there was no breakfast available, but that wasn't a problem since there were enough bakeries and café's around. Since it's close to Soho, going out at night to eat was a lot of fun as there's lots and lots of restaurants to pick from, the best one was 'Café Habana', a small Cuban/Mexican restaurant which is located 5 minutes from the hotel. The corn was literally heaven and I still dream of it once in a while (I'm not even kidding.)
So yeah, Sohotel has it's +'s and -'s, but it surely wasn't a regrettable stay, quite the opposite.

Room Tip: Away from Bowery.

Thank you for your kind review.

We noticed you haven't been to our hotel in over a year and wanted to inform you that as of a February 2014 we have changed all the guest room windows with state of the art sound proof technology.

We have eliminated the noise that you experienced over a year ago and we hope you'll come back soon to see how great they look!

Thank you

This hotel is in a great spot for exploring the city and the neighbourhood is quirky and fun. But don't expect traditional hotel trimmings. This is a place where you sleep and nothing more. It's very clean and we'll maintained despite being old. Rooms are small and there was only room for one of us to hang up some things and put underwear on a shelf. The bathroom is lacking - nowhere to unpack or hang your toiletries and the shower cubicle is tiny. I would recommend this hotel to young couples and friends who are able bodied and not expecting fancy accommodation just something really decent and clean in a good location at ok nyc price.

Room Tip: Rooms facing inwards as trendy Randolph's bar next door gets rowdy on the weekends. Also there i...
