I went to New York last month, and stayed at the Sohotel in the Bowery. The Sohotel is a small, but hip hotel. The rooms have exposed brick walls, and SUPER comfy beds and pillows. There’s a flat screen TV and a radio ipod dock. The bathrooms are tiny, but with a nice shower head and comes stocked with yummy smellingC.O Bigelow Apothecaries lotion, shampoo, body wash and conditioner.


The lobby is pretty classy, with free coffee and tea offered in the mornings and afternoons. It has lots of pretty chandeliers and comfy chairs. The location wasn’t bad, only 1 subway stop away from SoHo, where there is tons of shopping. The hotel is clean and the staff is efficient. They also let us store our luggage before check-in, and after we checked out, which was great.

Some of the downsides are:

  • It bills itself as a “cheap” hotel, but at $250 a night, I disagree.
  • There aren’t any restaurants around to grab dinner or breakfast. The hotel doesn’t have one, but if you walk for about 7 minutes, you’ll find some cafes and Little Italy.
  • It is LOUD. You can hear the traffic and street noises like you are out there. I DID have a good sleep while I was there, but if you are sensitive you might want to take note.
  • Only the lobby has WiFi. That really shocked me! You can get a faint WiFi signal in some rooms, but it’s hard.
  • There aren’t any phones in the room. If you need to call front desk you have to walk
  • There isn’t an elevator, and we stayed on the 4th floor. It wasn’t that bad though.

    The Sohotel is located at 341 Broome Street and the nearest metros are Bowery and Grand station.
