The best part of this hotel is the neighborhood! As a current resident of the East Village, I cannot recommend staying in this area enough. This hotel is close to Tompkins Square Park, St. Marks Place (a street bustling with small shops and restaurants), tons of community gardens, and other great local businesses. The hotel itself is an apartment building converted into a European style guesthouse with a variety of private rooms (viewable on their website). Coffee is served everyday but food will have to be found elsewhere in the neighborhood. Still recovering from Hurricane Sandy in October 2012, the East Village Bed and Coffee truly appreciates new customers but may be a bit slow at responding to emails and phonecalls, as they appear to still be busy dealing with some damage issues. If you want to stay here- be persistent! They're happy to have you. Another shocking thing about this hotel was the diversity of people staying in its few rooms: families, backpackers, NYC locals, and more were a sampling of people who passed through the iconic red door.Recommended for:

What an adorable neighborhood! For those looking for a trendy area to stay in I would definitely check out East Village Bed & Coffee. You're steps away from lots of restaurants and bars on St. Marks Pl, but if you don't want to walk down there you can always cross the street and find a restaurant and chill with a drink at their outdoor seating area.
Guests have a choice from a variety of themed rooms from a Dutch-styled room to a Beach-styled room and a more class French-themed room. Keep in mind though that you do have to share bathrooms at this accommodation spot, but there are a lot of very interesting and warmly decorated common areas where you can relax and feel at home, away from the busy and sometimes congested streets of NYC.Recommended for:

This inn captures the grungy, edgy character of the East Village and the Lower East Side. Located on Avenue C, it's quite a walk from the nearest subway stations, but on my way there, I passed by Ninth Street Espresso, one of my favorite coffee shops, and tons of other cool bars and restaurants that I now want to try out. This is an interesting area to stay in, because it's quickly gentrifying (with tons of hip bars and upscale restaurants popping up) but still maintains that quiet residential feel. The inn feels very much like a home, one that has been lived in for many years. The first floor lounge and kitchen area is stocked full of books and other knickknacks. Each room has a different theme, like French, Zen and Beach. They're simply furnished, with a bed (some queens, some doubles), dresser and nightstand, but the colorful and unique décor in each room allows for a unique stay in NYC.Recommended for:
