On the plus side, this is a lovely hotel once you are inside. I love the informality (no check-in, no concierge etc), and the relaxed vibe. The room is small but clean. We had a Queen room with a great view and it was great. Would have been better with more of a view uptown but perhaps some rooms have that. I wish we had gone for a room with a tub but that's a small point. On the downside, the hotel is not in a very convenient location. Of course, I knew that when we booked. We did not think this would be a big problem but it really was. OK, you can get a cab or Uber very easily and the subway is very close but for us as tourists it would have made a big difference to have been in a more convenient location. Aside from the location I cannot fault the hotel. The staff are very friendly(apart from the breakfast-time people in the canteen downstairs - they really didn't like their jobs!). The lobby bar is a great place to relax. The rooftop bar is buzzing. We didn't eat in the hotel so I can't comment on them. So, if you are happy to be in the Bowery area then go for this hotel. If you want to be a tourist like us and walk around a lot, using the hotel as a base during the day, then this hotel is not for you.

The place to be

I was recommended by my friend who lives next door to this hotel. The building itself has everything. There is a big Whole Foods on the same block, the coffee from the Joey (hotel’s cafe) is super good. Staff is young and stylish - yet super friendly. U get to go vip to the Roof which has amazing drinks and 360 view. I was on the small room, but it was very stylish and clean. If u go to NYC take this hotel, for the location (F metro gets u to places), hotel has a lot to do.

Unser Zimmer war ein Traum, kein Lärm, edle Materialien, bequemes Bett - super einfaches Handling der Shades, des Lichtes etc. - perfekt! Der Living room ist ein Highlight, fühlt sich an wie zuhause. Das Personal ist super freundlich und immer da, wenn etwas ist. So ist auch self-checkin absolut OK, da trotzdem mit persönlicher Note:) Eine einzige Anregung hätten wir: Wenn man spät am Abend zum Flughafen geht und bereits um 12 Uhr ausgecheckt hat, wäre es super, wenn man sich in der Gymgarderobe noch etwas frisch machen und umziehen könnte für die Reise und nicht das "öffentliche WC" bei der Lobby benutzen müsste. Sonst alles wunderbar! Lieben Dank nochmals, dass wir mit dem Manager die Rooftop Bar und das Penthouse besichtigen durften:)!

Thank you for your positive feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your experience at our rooftop bar. We have other rooms that have larger bathrooms with bigger mirrors. Please inquire about them when making your next reservation. We hope to welcome you back to PUBLIC again soon. Warm Regards,

Das Hotel ist super gut gelegen, tolles Quartier und Subway gleich um die Ecke. Eingangsbereich und das Hotel allgemein sind sehr stilvoll und modern. Einzig unpraktisch ist der Wandschrank und es gibt etwas wenig Platz für das Verstauen der Kleidung.

Perfekter Standort in der Lower East Side, weit weg vom Times Square und den Touristenmassen. Super ausgestattetes Hotel, schöne Zimmer, ultraschnelles WLAN - gerne wieder.
