“OK if your doing NY on the cheap!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2005

I stayed at the cosmo on my second trip to NY from the UK. Being a poor student the first time I went I stayed in a total dive, so the thought of staying somewhere a tad more expensive and cleaner was an exciting one. The best thing about the cosmo is the location, tribeca is a trendy and clean part of town and I felt safe wondering there of a night with my husband. Its also right by a subway station so getting around to the tourist sights is easy.

I do have a few negative comments, fisrt our room was rubbish. Not big enough to swing a cat in. When our cases where on the floor the only place you could stand was on the bed or in the bathroom! Our room also backed onto the air condtioning system and the noise was terrible. Having said this i've spoke to people who stayed there and got big quiet rooms and really enjoyed staying at the hotel, so i think its the luck of the draw.

I also didn't find the staff very welcoming, i understood they where always busy, but they made me feel like i was interupting their busy routine when i stopped by to ask a question.

I would not really like to stay at this hotel again, next time i go to NY i want to do it in style! But if you want to keep costs down, or you are just over there with a gang of friends it could be worth checking out the cosmo.

- Stayed Aug 9-16 in the one full size bed with the sofa (found out when we got to room that it was a pull out sofa bed as well)

- Our room did not have a closet but a shelf and some hangers from the wall. THe bathroom is very small but the room and bathroom was clean and no issues with paint/wallpaper/cracks or bugs. Room service comes everyday and cleans the sink/tub/restroom, takes all the old towels and give you new fresh towels, toilet paper, cups. They also include soap bars/ shampoo one use things, and toothpaste. They made the bed sheets pillows etc, and also the sofa bed if u leave it out.

- We usually stayed away from room from 11 am - 2 am everyday, and came back for naps.

- The place is perfect location. Away from main congested loud roads, and right smack on top of the 123(red) subway entrance (chambers) This is very very very handy. It is also a block away from the Blue line as well.

- We have never been to nyc and away on our own, but the nyc subway system is easy to learn after a few trial and errors.

- The hotel has two entrance in and out. The front desk is open 24 hrs. We had a plumbing issue with toilet at 2 am and they came and fixed it.

- There is only ONE elevator but it is also very slow. We were on the 7th floor and we could not hear the neighbors but often we would hear honking(tons of honking in nyc). But it didnt bother us.

- A/C is controlled by a window unit. They include a wall hairblower. Alarm clock as well. Calls are not free. The room had a tv with few basic cable channels. The water had good flow and pressure.

- Our rate was 156 ish after taxes a night, but according to their website they will change the rates very soon. We looked at lots of other sites and hotels, and this had the best rates and reviews.

- We booked the reservations by phone about 3 weeks prior to coming. We had three people staying in the room and with the bed and the sofa opened up and all the luggage it was tight squeeze but no problem.

- Room included a ceiling fan, table, and 3 drawers. ( the full bed + sofa room)

- Right above startbucks. We picked up various wi-fi signals but all were protected and some were unable to connect hehegeg. We occasionaly pick up free wifi from some networks wherever.

- The lobby has racks of brochures and things for tourists and etc. Pick up the subway map becuase that will be with you at all times. Just tear out the manhattan one so the map will be smaller.

- The website does great job of telling you exeactly how much it will cost a night after all fees. It was exactly that amt when the bill came out during checkout.

- At night nyc the three of us 2 males/1 female ages 19-22. Did not have anyproblems. The streets may be dark but people walk around and cars drive. Just use common sense and there is always the taxis, and the subway exit/entrace is right under the hotel so you wont have to walk far at all if u pop out at the right one on the block. Usually went back to hotel between 12 am-2 am. If u bank then there is a WAMU(washington mutual about a block away), Bank of america is around as well. Everything within the manhattan area is accessible by the subway and the red line rail that is next to the hotel is helpful and the blue one as well.

My friend and I stayed here, after reading great reviews on this website. I am pleased to say that we made the right decision, I never expected to find somewhere affordable and well located (it's out of the main tourist area and near ground zero), let alone a quiet haven in the surrounding metropolis - but this hotel was all this and more!
Clean but basic, this hotel is perfect for anyone wishing to spend more time sightseeing that sitting indoors lapping up room service!

Took my 16 year old daughter to NYC for her birthday, she chose the hotel based on friends recommendation. Loved it! It is small, but has everything you need at a great price. The service was great and friendly, the location is a little bit quieter than downtown and we loved the Starbucks downstairs for breakfast!
We'll stay here again!

A very good location-- within blocks of several subway lines, a short walk to Brooklyn Bridge and Ground Zero. Good price, clean rooms, no problems with the staff. Just one fault: the traffic noise during the night.

If you really don't care where you stay as long as it's clean, quiet and you don't have to have any contact with the staff beyond checking in and out then this is the place for you. Wouldn't have wanted to spend all day in the tiny and dark room but I wouldn't have wanted to spend a lot of time in ANY hotel room - I'm in New York! Staff not exactly falling over themselves to be friendly but who cares, the hotel was good enough that we didn't have to ask for anything anyway. It's cheap, VERY clean (which is a real relief considering some hotel reviews I've read) and about a millisecond from the subway. Really good, highly recommended.

We stayed July 9 to 13th. If you are a low maintenance traveller the Cosmo is the perfect hotel in a great part of town with perfect subway connections. As far as the staff goes; you're in New York for heavens sake.
Don't expect folksy good humour. We found them friendly, helpful and efficient. My only regret is that all these great reviews will either cause the reasonable rates to go up or make reservations very hard to get in the future.
