I had a shoebox. A single room on the first floor with a full and tight would be an understatement. Could just barely move and it faced the street. The bed, pillow, and shower were efficient, comfortable, and clean. The staff were very accommodating, as in offering to make a coffee or ease my stay. It’s a well located property at the end of a street. Soho is right out the door and you have a perfect spot to go to theater and restaurants. I would stay again if I could get a bigger room with a rate justifying the cost. It’s a very well put together property with thought given to the details.

Superb property in the heart of SoHo. We stayed there twice in two weeks and felt like we were at home. Modern, clean and very quiet amidst the hustle bustle. Superb front desk staff who are accommodating and helpful. Very clean rooms with comfortable beds and great showers. Saeed at the front desk was outstanding. Ask for room 101.
