    The location was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms had everything I needed.

    The keycard to my room kept failing - had to continuously head back down to reception to get a new key to get into my room. Also had a few minor problems (2 days out of 14) where the Wi-Fi didnt work.

    The Gem Hotel is exactly that. A gem! We love this hotel. We stay here every year when we visit nyc. We love the les and this hotel is small but very comfortable and very quiet. The only reason to be in the hotel while in nyc is to shower and sleep. And these things are luxurious and perfect about The Gem. The staff is the other amazing thing. They are all so sweet and kind. They treat us like royalty every time we stay there. I'll never stay anywhere else. I obviously recommend this hotel.

    The location is perfect! Specially if you want to enjoy the best of Soho shops and restaurants/bistros... Walking distante to whats left of Little Italy, the huge Chinatown and Lower East Side life, wich is great...very close to metro stations too, Staff very helpful, specially Anthony who gave me nice tips about good places do eat arround the hotel. The room was cleaned every single day! All the facilities in side working perfectly... microwave, heater, cable tv, wi-fi... I totaly recommend this hostel for those travelling alone, couples, with friends...

    It was not a problem at all, but for some people might be... the rooms are small - specially the queen beds ones if you travel with more than one luggage - there is no wardrobe. but I could organize my things inside the drawers above the television and the bed box.

    Great location, well-kept rooms, and friendly and helpful staff.

    This is the second time I've stayed here, and both times the shower has had only two settings: burning hot or freezing cold. I probably won't go back.

    The front of house staff were always friendly and helpful especially Anthony. Our room was petite but clean and comfortable. The hotel location was a little noisy but in a fantastic area otherwise. Had a great stay.

    Just the bit of street noise really.

    Small but at the edge of a great neighborhood. Possibly the least touristy hotel in Manhattan.

    Room was small, but well-laid out. Very much like a European hotel room.

    Location and very accommodating staff.

    A few of the towels and bed linens showed to be very worn . Towels hand fraying on ends, sheets were piling for use. But they were clean

    Keith, and the friendly staff. Easy access to shopping, restaurants and the subways, cabs--not good was the street construction. But out of your control

    The construction noise and keith offered to move me but I was already unpacked

    Superb

    The room had a jacuzzi in it, and was generally pretty comfortable. The location is fantastic, next to the bustle of Alphabet City and Little Italy.

    The room was cold, and the heater was noisy and made the room stuffy. The street was also quite noisy, though this was expectable for the location on Houston St.

    Low key, friendly staff and very good location

    Noisy heater and traffic if your room overlooks houston st.

    The staff were clearly there to be of service and were very friendly. The location was very convenient.

    Tight quarters in the room and if you have booked for 4, there should be 4 coffee cups instead of two (same for glasses). However, if we needed something, the staff were quick to provide.
