“Not bad at all”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

Situated about 5-10 minutes walk from The Bowery or Delancey Street on the Subway, Hojo is a friendly and relaxed place to stay. Room was a decent enough size, good shower, TV, safe and coffee making facility in room, heating worked great which helped as it was pretty cold outside, and the bed was really comfy resulting in a great sleep after a long flight. Assisted by several cold ones enjoyed in an excellent bar on the corner of Broome Street and Bowery specialising in draught beers. Superb. Check it out - great grub too. Toiletries replenished daily, and staff really helpful with directions to various places, even printing maps out for me as they had run out of the fold-up type. Only minor things if I'm being picky were the paper plates and plastic cutlery at breakfast which was served in the foyer and can get busy as there are only 3 tables. Timing is everything. Get there early enough and have a cuppa with 2 rounds of toast and watch Chinatown spring to life. There aren't many hotels I've looked forward to returning to after a days sightseeing but this is one of them.

Room Tip: Light sleepers may find rooms at front of hotel unsuitable. But this is New York so be prepared.

A lovely little hotel. Centrally located. Near many resturants and metro trains. The staff is very helpful. There was foreseeable, but nice breakfast included. The rooms were very small and there was no opportunity to unpack the suitcases. Definitely a hotel I would recommend, and even use again.

This hotel was not only great with the price but the service given was above and beyond. The hotel was clean and centrally located in China Town. We were there for three days to explore the city and it was very conveniently located close to the Subway and the bus crossed in front of the hotel. We almost didn't make our flight back home but thanks to the concierge, they called a cab for us and even got us a discount. We made it just in time. We will definitely come back.

P.S. breakfast is great...more than just a continental breakfast...and its free :)

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor for the best views.

The hotel is nice, the rooms are small but well equipped. Its a good location for the Brooklyn Bridge and the lowier East Side but its in China Town and not Soho as the title suggests - its bang in the centre and this isnt a huge problem but dont assume that this hotel is in Soho. There isnt any major noise from the street although the room walls are thin and we were next to a family with a young child so early starts were on the cards - this wasnt a problem as its New York and all you want to do it get up and get going! The staff are friendly and very helpful.

Rooms were very clean. Hotel staff is very friendly. location is good. No problems with noise. Hotel is newer so hotel is nice as well. A little small but otherwise a good place for the price. Also, breakfast was provided and subways are very close.
