I try to go to NYC at least once a year, two or three times if I can afford it. I've stayed at hotels and hostels, the Broadway Hostel on the Upper West Side, The Gem Hotel in the Lower East Side and The Pod Hotel in Midtown. Now I will say, unless you are willing to pay $300 or $400 bucks a night for a place in NYC, you are going to have to sacrifice SOMETHING! Don't expect to pay under $350 bucks to stay in Manhattan and get everything you ever wanted and more in your dream hotel room. With that being said, I was thrilled with staying at East Village Bed and Coffee. It was the perfect location for everything I wanted to do (I happen to hate Times Square and much prefer the Lower East Side) From the very start Anne was very accommodating. I told her we'd be there at midnight, but due to a concert letting out at Madison Square Garden and cabs refusing to picks us up, we didn't get there till 1am. No problem, she was happy to meet us there, let us inside, give us a limited tour, and recommend a diner a few blocks away. The place was clean, comfy, and I loved the decorations. I've read other reviews about it being too noisy. Do you realize that you are traveling to New York City, the city that never sleeps? The city that has 9 million people living in it? USE EAR PLUGS! Or better yet, use some earplugs that the B&B provides for guests, or a white noise machine the B&B will provide for guests if requested. People on my floor were a little loud the first night, but guess what I did? I asked them politely to quiet down, and you know what? They did! And then I put in earplugs and slept like a baby, problem solved! Great place, great value, great location, I would definitely stay again!
