I recommend this place for those who are comfortable with hostels. You might think of it as a place where you'd live if you were new to Manhattan and didn't have much money: - The rooms are small with no windows. - There's no housekeeping. - You might have to wait for a bathroom, there might not be hot water...

Do not stay here! This place is a disaster waiting to happen. We spent 5 long nights here in September. The guest rooms are tiny little spaces built out without windows, air, proper lighting, and any regard for inhabitation. The construction is scary; electrical wires without protective conduit, registers without air duct connections, a sliding glass door entry with a...

This hotel was great. The bed was really comfortable and the tv was nice as well. It is on the third floor without any elevators that I saw so you get a small workout - keep that in mind when carrying luggage. Never a lot of noise despite an event and being on top of a dance studio. Our room...

I went to the Soho Loft overnight for a business event in the area and found the experience to be really convenient for me. Some of the rooms are smaller than others, but it's not an uptown hotel, it's a downtown bed and breakfast. It's great if you're going to be in and out of town and just need a...

Staying at the Soho Loft was a wonderful experience. The people working there were extremely friendly. They made excellent restaurant recommendations and I felt like I was actually living in NYC. I would definately recommend this accomadation to friends, family and my business associates.

The writer who gave this hovel a rating of "5" was probably confusing it with another place called SoHo Loft a block or two south of this hole. My wife and I stayed at the SoHole Loft (the one at 199 Lafayette) the weekend of 10/5-10/7/07. We have done a great deal of traveling and have stayed at some of...

My partner and I stayed for 5 nights. The main problem was there is NO LIGHT AND NO AIR to the bedrooms. They are dark stuffy closets that made us claustrophobic and depressed. Some guests came, took one look and ran screaming, while we had paid up in full and thought we'd stick it out. There may be functions on...

I travel to NYC for business almost every week and have been staying at the loft off and on for the last 3 months. It has been a great alternative to staying in a hotel. The space is large and fashionable. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The loft manager has been courteous and eager to accomodate. I also...

Dream your dream of a Soho loft and then multiply by 2 and you have this place. It has charm, character, location, light, great design touches. I can't stop thinking of reasons to get back to New York so I can stay there again. One of best things is location, location, location - right at the hub of the village,...

Staying in SoHo

Neighbourhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore by foot. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district –majestic cast-iron architecture everywhere you look. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city. The pretty streets of Nolita (North of Little Italy) offer a more sedate vibe, with plenty of tiny boutiques and hip restaurants to seek out.
