Situated in the vibrant Lower East Side, the Off SoHo Suites Hotel offers a cool, comfortable alternative to the standard hotel room. Outfitted with a private bedroom and full kitchen these two- and four-person suites help make guests feel like they’re living in New York instead visiting as tourists.
Pros: Spacious rooms with full kitchen. Good value. Convenient subway access.
Cons: No Wi-Fi in rooms (although there is wired Internet). Rooms can pick up street noise.
The 38 rooms at the Off SoHo Suites Hotel feature hardwood floors, modern furniture and plenty of light. The hotel favors reliable comfort over boutique flourishes, and the standard list of amenities includes air conditioning, a flat-panel television and in-room safe, as well as a few unexpected perks—like the fully-outfitted kitchens.
There are two types of rooms at the Off Soho Suites. Economy Suites sleep two guests in two twin beds and share a kitchen and bathroom with an adjacent suite. Four-person Deluxe Suites come with a master bedroom (with either two twins or one queen bed), a living room furnished with a queen-size sofa bed and a private kitchen and bathroom.
Bathrooms come with a hair dryer and basic toiletries.
The Off SoHo Suites Hotel represents a good value in a convenient—and particularly cool—location. In the low season, in fact, these suites are far less expensive than motel-type accommodation elsewhere in Manhattan. The hotel also offers an extended stay option with very competitive rates
Guests of the Off SoHo Suites have access to a small exercise (with a rowing machine, Stairmaster, treadmill and weight machines), as will as business services for copying and faxing are also offered. The hotel also offers laundry facilities and an elevator.
Wi-Fi is free in public areas and wired Internet is free in hotel rooms (note that Wi-Fi reception does not reach inside the suites).
Situated just off the Bowery (and, yes, just “off Soho”), the Off SoHo Suites Hotel boasts an enviable location, convenient to the hip ‘hoods the East Village and Nolita. Its neighbor, Loreley beer garden, happens to be one of the EuroCheapo office’s favorite post-work watering holes.
You’re also a short walk from Mulberry Street, the heart of Manhattan’s Little Italy. America’s first pizzeria, Lombardi’s (32 Spring Street), is popular with visitors. And Katz’s Deli, Russ & Daughters and Economy Candy, all Lower East Side institutions, are just a short walk away. Those planning to make use of the full kitchens can head up Bowery to Houston, where a block-wide Whole Foods Market awaits.
The area is also home to nightlife galore, from swank Lower East Side spots to cool East Village dives. And live music fans will be happy to note that, the historic concert venue Bowery Ballroom is located around the corner on Delancey Street.
Budget shopping awaits a few blocks to the south on Canal Street, Chinatown’s main drag, and higher-end shops are a short walk to the west in hip Soho.
Guest reviews in brief
The Off SoHo Suites attracts those needing more space than a hotel room, whether that’s a group of friends or a family with children. All in all, guests are pleased with the space, value and convenient location, and they love the large, comfortable suites and kitchen access.
Complaints about the Off SoHo Suites are minor. Guests criticize the sofa beds for being too hard. Some guests are also also disturbed by the noisy air conditioning units or nighttime noise from the busy street.

Subways: The closest subway station to the hotel is one block away on Bowery (J and Z lines) one block away. The hotel is also within seven-minute walk of the B (weekdays only) and D lines at Grand Street, the F at 2nd Avenue and the 6 at Spring Street.
JFK: Reaching the Off SoHo Suites from JFK is simple: Take the Air Train to Sutphin Boulevard-Archer Avenue Station, and then take the J or Z train to Bowery, which is one block from the hotel. Note: The Z train runs express during rush hour in peak direction only (traveling to Manhattan fromm 7 a.m. - 8:15 a.m. and from Manhattan from 4:55 p.m. - 5:45 p.m.).
LaGuardia: We recommend taking an airport bus service to Grand Central, where you can transfer to a downtown 6 train to Spring Street.
Newark: From Newark Airport, take the Air Train to the NJ Transit station and any NJ Transit train into New York Penn Station. From here, a cab directly to the hotel is most convenient because the subway requires two transfers.

About the Off SoHo Suites Hotel neighborhood
Since the 1800s, the Lower East Side, south of the East Village, has been a neighborhood of immigrants. These days, however, the "LES" is known more for its hipster residents, pricey bistros and funky boutiques. But don't be fooled by the facade: Walk a few blocks beyond the bars and you'll find that immigrants still form the bulk of LES residents, only now they come from China, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic. The ever-expanding Chinatown and ever-shrinking Little Italy form the neighborhood's western border.
