    For a major foodie like myself, the Sohotel's awesome location at the intersections of Chinatown, Little Italy and Noho is unbeatable. Cheap, creative and delicious food options abound around this area, and the nightlife is great as well. The hotel itself is the oldest in the city, but the rooms are recently renovated, cozy and modern. Hardwood floors and marble-walled bathrooms make this place feel a bit sterile, but some rooms have exposed brick walls, which add to the hotel's edgy, Bowery punk image. The lobby has funky, zebra-striped couches and chairs, and people tend to hang out and socialize there, because that's where the WiFi is. Express coffee and tea is offered in the lobby in the morning, and you can get a discount pass at the desk for a nearby gym. A cheap hotel with character, the Sohotel offers a place to crash after a day of eating and exploring!

    I once watched an episode of "Bridezillas" in which the wedding colors were "purple and zebra". Walking into Sohotel, I could see that this was, in fact, an excellent aesthetic choice, as the purple walls popped out against zebra-patterned chairs and sleek furniture definitely suited for the neighborhood. Even the staff, in purple and white checked shirts and vests looked dapper, which contributed to the overall playful atmosphere of the hotel. Rooms are a bit tight, but clean and with plenty of storage space. The sitting area in the front also offers a great escape from what could be slightly cramped shared conditions. Right off the Bowery and literally in the middle of several fantastic neighborhoods (Soho, Noho, Little Italy, Chinatown, East Village...) you won't get bored travelling by foot to all destinations while staying at Sohotel. Don't be fooled by the name though, the hotel's location is a bit far east to be considered Soho, but absolutely perfect for $1 dumplings on your walks back at night.

    I really enjoyed my stay here. I was travelling with three girlfriends in December and we booked a 4-person ensuite room. It was clean and comfortable and well-designed. The major selling point is its location in the heart of SoHo, making it easy to walk back after a night out.

    One of the oldest hotels in the City, Sohotel may have small rooms with sparse amenities; however, the location is the best in Manhattan. Steps from Sohotel, you can wander from Little Italy to Chinatown, and experience the mecca of shopping in Soho.

    As soon as I walked into the lobby I felt like I was in a trendy place which is fitting considering it's right in the middle of several great neighborhoods - Little Italy, Lower East Side and Nolita. But as trendy as it seems you will notice that there is a lot of old world charm and their respect for the past. Although the guests rooms are renovated, they tried to incorporate old pieces like exposed brick and wood paneling and updates like hardwood flooring and updated bathrooms.

    If you like a bit a history with your bed, you'll be happy to find out that Roosevelt has stayed in this hotel. You'll also be delighted in all the creative ways they managed to add storage space for guests like putting in hooks and rods in places where there are no closets.

    Keep in mind though that they're renovating again in August to expand the size of their lobby.
