A glorified hostel. I live most of the year in hotels for work & travel, so I've stayed at very basic accommodation, through to high end luxury. We had booked for 6 nights to stay at Arlo Soho for our trip to New York at $335 USD p/night (to be fair I'm sure the pricing was higher than usual based on the holiday period). When we first arrived, we were given the room keys for what I was sure was the cupboard. The room was so small, that there wasn't enough room for both my partner and I to open a suitcase on the floor at one time. Honestly, it felt like a fire risk. When we went downstairs to note the size of the room, they told us that they pride themselves on being 'micro living'... a pride I was yet to see advertised anywhere. So basically they try to fit in as many rooms into one building as possible. At $330 USD per night, I was at least expecting the rooms to have nice finishes. The amenities were basic, the sheets were stiff and not soft, and the body wash/ shampoo etc were cheap. The hotel was able to move our room to an accessibility room, but still it was a very standard, if not below standard size room for the price. The only upside location was great as it was close to Canal Street where a lot of the subway lines stop at, and walking distance to Greenwich Village / Soho area. I understand that a lot of people say it doesn't matter because you hardly spend any time at the hotel, but you still want it to be somewhere you look forward to coming to rest. Clearly the marketing is good as lots of young, trendy, luxury style couples were constantly checking in at reception, but I'm sure they would be just as put off by the constant 'Retro games night' event text messages, for this weird expensive hostel.

A friend and I stayed for just one night but it was amazing!! Everyone on staff was so helpful and friendly. The building is beautiful and smells really nice, the room was small but super well laid out. Beds are sooo comfy and the shower had the best water pressure. The hotel is in a convenient location too. Would absolutely stay again!
