      Location of this hotel is awesome, and probably it's biggest selling point. Rooms are really small, but have all the necessary facilities. Overall enjoyable stay.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Solita Soho Hotel New York City

      Small, but clean!

      from

      This is a small hotel in SoHo bordering Little Italy and China Town. The rooms were very small, but clean. We loved the double shower heads, and the beds were very comfortable. We were on the top (12th) floor, and could feel and hear the subway that runs near the hotel.

      A Great Little Hotel In New York

      from

      We stayed at The Solita Soho Hotel for one week and were very pleased with the clean room, efficient service, and location. Our room had two comfortable beds, a great shower, and high speed internet acess. Yes the room was small but that is not uncommon in NYC. The rate of $199.00 per night was welcome for a hotel this clean and new. They even had a man cleaning the front facade of the building and inside of the elevator. The location in the Chinatown / Little Italy / Soho area which makes it an interesting place to stay. Lots of good restaurants in the area too. Very pleased with our one week experience and would stay there again.

      Loved this hotel!

      from

      We stayed here one night in February and we will be back. The details were taken care of, the staff was friendly, and they had the most comfortable bed of our entire trip...better mattress than the Waldorf and Righa Royal.

      We were on the 12th floor, and there was only one other room on our floor.

      The black carpet and plasma TV were a nice touch, too.

      Be sure to eat breakfast across the street. Good diner food at a great price.

      Could not ask for more

      from

      Great location, immaculately clean room if a little small, wonderful bed, bathroom & fittings, plasma TV, internet access, very friendly & helpful staff & exceptionally quiet at all times even when fully booked.

      Great Hotel

      from

      My husband and I stayed at the Solita Soho from December 28-January 1, 2005. We are both in our mid-twenties and travel frequently for business and pleasure. Below are positive and negative things about the hotel:

      Positive:

      Price-our four night stay was free because I used our Choice Privileges points. There was no problem redeeming the points at this hotel. They took a credit card imprint for incidentals, however, at check out we had no charges on the account.

      Room-clean, fairly spacious, new room. The shower was great with two shower heads, hot water-except one morning as my husband showered-the bed was very comfortable as were the bed linens and feather pillows. The decor was Asian/modern. Plasma screen tv was nice too.

      Location-a bit out of the way from touristy area-which we liked. It is in Chinatown. The closest metro we found was on Canal Street about 2 1/2 blocks from the hotel. There is a McDonalds near as well as a Bank of America (although we found this branch of our bank to be completely worthless at helping with a balance transfer) near the hotel.

      The hotel's location in the city was dead by 10:00 pm when we would head back from the days events. This was good because it was quiet at night. They were doing some construction in the mornings starting about 9 am with banging going on. Room to room noise wasn't a problem but people slamming doors in the hallway was.

      Staff-were very helpful and friendly. I needed to print tickets to the MoMA from my email account and they allowed me to print them from the computer at the front desk.

      Negative-no included breakfast, no business center

      Great little Gem of a Hotel!

      from

      We just came back from our stay at The Solita Soho Hotel. (Stayed from November 20-22). We paid an average of $225/night (prices were higher because it was the weekend before Thanksgiving - this was also at a discounted rate through Choicehotels - we found out later if we would've booked thru American Express that we would've saved an add'l 15%!!) the other hotels in the area that weekend were charging $325-$400/night. We definitely got a deal! The entire staff was helpful and courteous. The room is about 1/3 of the size smaller than what we're accustomed to. So, I definitely understand what the other lady said about lack of space for your luggage. I will say this though, what they lack in space they more than make up for in comfort!! My husband and I both agree that THESE ARE THE MOST COMFORTABLE HOTEL BEDS WE HAVE SLEPT IN! That's saying a lot because we both travel for business! The hotel was located a couple of blocks from the subway (best mode of transportation!), great bargain shopping on Canal and great Chinese and Italian food without the high prices. We recommend Big Wong's on Mott for great Chinese food - they're known for their peking duck and bbq ribs. (They're cash only!) We also loved Cafe Napoli's on Mulberry and had great Italian pastries and cheesecake at Cafe Bella on Mulberry. When you do reserve a room here at The Solita Soho Hotel, ask for a room not facing Grand St if you're not used to hearing some noise at night. Since NY is the city that never sleeps, we could still hear some of the traffic in our room that was on the 9th floor. Anyway, I hope this helps! We will definitely stay at this hotel again!

      Excellent location and great rates

      from

      We stayed here for 5 nights in October 2004 and loved it. Very friendly staff, great location near the Soho/Little Italy area, good rates, very clean and well maintained. Rooms are small but you expect this in New York unless you wish to pay up. Will definitely go back.

      Excellent value in an overpriced area.

      from

      This hotel is only two months old and I predict it will be tough to get a room in the future. The location, just South of SoHo and one block West of Little Italy, couldn't be more convenient. The six subway is very close, Canal is a block away, and great restaurants are all within easy walking distance. The room are a bit small, but very clean, with excellent beds and nice two-headed showers, plasma TVs, free high-speed internet, coffee maker, and newspaper! For half the price of the Soho Grand and rooms the same size, this can't be beat. They are opening a restaurant and bar soon also.

      Soho Special!

      from

      I would agree great little hotel. New, nice room extras like great feather pillows, duvets, plasma tv. However there are no hotel services at this point, ie concierge, restaurant etc.. But the staff was friendly and helpful. The location was dead on, there are few hotels in this area, right next to Little Italy, Chinatown and two blocks north of Canal Street for all the knock off purses you can carry! Subway stop is three blocks away at Canal and Lafayette. The Pancake house across the street serves great meals quickly and CHEAP!

      Only downfall is the rooms are tiny - four ladies with luggage was almost impossible but we made it work. Be sure to book at the discount rate.

      Brand New - Very Clean

      from

      Great little hotel with a very friendly staff. Rooms are plush though small. The location is close to Soho shopping & Little Italy but not very close to a subway stop. The price is just right ($130), check out the internet rate @ Choicehotels. In the room there is a plasma TV, robe, & Pantene hair products. Good coffee across the street @ Landmark Pancake Shop.

      ... out that way. If you're a solo traveller like me, you might not even have to wait for the next bus if they have a single seat left =)

      I don't remember the drive much, just quite industrial, but I can say now I've gone through the Lincoln Tunnel, and am glad I didn't book a hotel on this side of the river. It could've been quite a commute for those not in the area. Anyhows, this wraps up my travels for 2014. Looking forward to the world in 2015! Happy New Year!

      After walking around in the Toy Store and walking around in Central Park we then had to walk back to our Hotel. Plenty of exercise today! Not sure Steph and Aaron were too impressed but they did a great job. The other thing about walking everywhere is that it does take up our precious time. We tend to stop and look at other shops on the way, which is fun and you get to see more. Sometimes its the best way to get around.

      Statue of Liberty and the Eagles

      This morning we had the Statue of Liberty booked for a 9 am ferry departure. Best to book this around 2 months beforehand when they usually go on sale, especially if you want to walk the 354 steps to the crown. The 9 am departure was a good move as we didn't have the big crowds when we got to the statue. You also get nice views of the Manhattan skyline from the ferry.

      ... back on lower Manhattan and think about how they handled the whole twin towers horror. Will learn more at the memorial when we do it. After getting off the ferry we then walked to Wall Street passing the Fraunces Tavern which was the first tavern in New York. Up to Wall Street and grappled with the tourists everywhere for a photo with the bull. Luv the trees around wall street in the concrete jungle. Then visited the Trinity Church ... How beautiful and the graveyard ...
