I loved the old building and its uniqueness. However, our room was in front of building by the road and the bar next door had very rowdy people at 3:30 AM that woke me each night. The staff could not have been nicer or more acommodating.

Really great area, right in the middle of the East Side. There are no elevators, so make sure you know you'll be walking up stairs ahead of time. The only problem is that they don't let you know that it is cash only and are not very clear on their procedures. They have an ATM on site, but you will get the service charge which could have been avoided if it was known that cash was needed.

Very close to everything we wanted to do. The rooms are small, but who wants to hang out at a hotel when you are in NYC. Staff was kind, and the pizza shop downstairs is delicious! I will definitely rebook again!

Good value for the price. Cash only though so make sure you bring Benjamin's. Great location.

Very tiny rooms with very loud air conditioners that don’t make the room colder

Don't overlook this super clean, funky little place. Sure, it's cash only, the rooms are small and there's no elevator, but it's quiet, the basics are there and someone will always carry your luggage up and down the stairs. Rather than spending your money on hotel amenities, save it for exploring the nearby eateries and bars, shops, and subway. The internet speed is good, too. I always stay there regardless of where I need to be in NYC. Any inconvenience is small, and worth the trouble.

Very near the public transportation. Lots of restos near the hotel.

Perfect location. Reasonably priced. Stayed many times. No issues.

This is an inexpensive, no-frills hotel. It is perfect to sleep in after a day of enjoying the city. I have two time shares in Manhattan, much better accoutrements. However, I prefer the St. Marks.

I read a few reviews before our stay here, some negative, some positive, but after actually staying here, what a steal of a deal!! Sure the rooms are small, but it's a historic hotel in a great location in New York City! We stayed 3 nights at this hotel in one of their one full bed hotel rooms which very comfortably sleeps 2 guests. We enjoyed a private bathroom (not a shared one) and the hotel was VERY conveniently located near the 4, 5, 6 and also R, W Subway Lines which took us anywhere we wanted to be in no time at all! I absolutely enjoyed staying here and would stay here again. It's not the Taj Mahal, but for the incredible price that left us with money to do lots of fun things NYC has to offer and the comfortable room we got, with the location, location, location, it was absolutely fantastic!

This hotel is in a small, funky building within a short walking distance of lots of restaurants and both Cooper Union and NYU which is why we chose it. The room was fine, if a little dated, but we really liked that the two beds had their own separate rooms and there were two bathrooms for the three of us. Biggest surprise is that they DO NOT TAKE CREDIT CARDS - very strange in 2017 :-) They do, however, have an ATM in the lobby, with (of course) a fee for withdrawal.

My room became smoked filled as the night went on as someone was smoking either in the hallway or in another room and it was AWFUL! In addition, there were bugs in the room---looked like mosquitos, which is very unusual for late October! Had to pay cash which is NOT listed on the website and certainly makes me wonder why???

This stay is bare-bones, but just enough! The staff were wonderful and accommodations clean, comfortable and private. For the money and location, it's the BEST hotel I've stayed in. <3 Not for Times Square touristy travelers and anyone with mobility issues --- no elevators and everything is only accessible by old staircases.

Hair in the shower and cigarette burns on the blanket. Air conditioner 50/50. Had some difficulty accessing the Internet. I nEver saw anything that said it was cash only but that's what it was so bring lots of money

The reason I gave it at 2 overall is that they accept only cash no credit cards I did not see this listed when I booked it through Orbitz. In all honesty I may have missed that detail but the point is I have never stayed at a hotel before that accepted only cash. I had to scramble to transfer money and go to an ATM to get them the cash so I could check in. So just be forewarned its cash and carry. Also there are no ice machines on the premises.
