I would have no problem with this place had it not been for the adult bed bug I saw crawling on the wall at 6am. I promptly left, but I fear I have brought them home with me. I didn’t experience any bites in my...More

Don't bother. Really. What a nightmare ! Please believe me. This is totally misrepresented on the website. At 8pm out took 20 mins to book in as the rooms (rooms huh - bunks? Closets?!) weren't ready. Noisy and grubby. No apologies for my anger about...More

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighbourhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
