Good location

This place is run down! Just stayed for one night and our toilet didn't work the whole time. Apparently the chain in the toilet tank was missing (? how does that even happen) and they tried to fix it with twine (oh great). Needless to say, the fix didn't work. Big gap at the door meant you heard everything in the hall all night, and smelled MJ all night too, lol. The staff was nice and tried their best, and surprisingly the bed was nice and clean. Book it if you want that old-school LES 'charm' otherwise, spend a little more and enjoy yourself.

For a simple getaway for which is what I needed it amazing! I fell in life with the simplicity of it! It wasn't fancy but it damn sure wasn't horrible. Also, very low key! I recommend this place to just about anyone needing that personal space or time!

I liked the entrance. I didn't like the underground rooms. You can hear everything from busy street

Excellent concierge. The only reason I am reviewing this is because the person at the front desk conducted the check in exactly as should be. Quick. Pleasant speech. Attentive. Present. Relaxed. And coming off the E. Houston crowding, to an expedient process (to a clean / fresh room at an affordable rate) has this customer planning the next visit.

I was able to check in early around 1 PM. The room was small with a double bed in the middle w. A TV and closet. It was okay until I found stains on the bedsheets.. bathroom seemed clean. It's was fine just cause it's a one night stay, but I prob would have just paid more for clean sheets overall.

Very clean and excellent location. Frond deaf very friendly

Clean room, pleasant front desk staff but only amenity was free lobby coffee. Great location.

Staff was pleasant and engaging. Did not really have time to explore the hotel but it was perfect for what I needed: one night stay, in and out, close to where I needed to be, no frills. Freshly painted. Only issue was there were no electric outlets near to the bed, just two under the small desk.

Extremely upset i left my brand new Victoria secret jacket in the room and the hotel staff refuses to turn it in i stay in the city quite alot i will never stay there again.

Awesome spot just north of China Town. Whole foods and a great coffee roaster is one block away. All the shopping you can imaging right around the corner. Hotel was very clean and the staff was amazing! We will indefinably stay at the Gatsby Hotel next time in the city!

Convient location to the LES but the walls are extremely thin. The night staff threatened to remove us for talking at a normal tone at 2am (aka thin walls). You can hear any movement going on in the hallways. So I was awoken by every guest checking out in the morning as well as the loud cleaning staff.

No frills hotel, room was nice for the price and area- hotel doesn’t have heat in the hallways ( at least none on the 4th Fl ) not bad though

So the front desk people are all amazing... the room is nice and up dated i just wish the windows were double pain because the noise from the street is real... the honking and all... thats not the hotels fault but one night i was about to loxe my cool.. we were on the 3rd floor. Honestly it was close to my job site for a few days so i would stay here again because i loved the fact that everyone was nice and helpful im just bring ear plugs

Hotel worked great for our trip. Was walking distance to a lot of great locations. Nice staff from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out. Room was clean and comfortable. Will definitely stay here again when traveling to New York.

The hotel was just what we wanted for the weekend visit to NYC - close to our son's apartment, quiet, clean, and a friendly staff.

Comfortable well-located hotel in the Lower East Side. One block away from the 2nd Avenue subway station, across the street from Whole Foods, and nearby many bars and restaurants - all features that made my stay at Gatsby a pleasant one. Bed, bathroom, satellite TV, coffee maker were helpful - also one can request a microwave and small refrigerator for a room upgrade at a small additional nightly cost. Looking forward to my next stay at Gatsby! Thank you, Anthony, for the friendly assistance upon check-in.

Rooms are small, which typical for NYC. Seems to have been recently remodeled in modern style. Clean and comfortable with a very friendly staff. The location is also central to the lower east side and very close to the subway. There are some definite "pros" to this little hotel. The biggest downside is the water. It barely dribbled out of the shower, no matter what time of day or night we tried it. There also appeared to be air in the water lines causing the sink to gurgle and spit whenever we tried to use it. Others on the same floor mentioned the same issues. Fortunately, we were only there for one night, so it was manageable, but would have been problematic for a longer stay where we'd need to shower more often. The problem was reported to the front desk at check out.
