    it's no-frills and shared bathrooms, but you're not going to find a better place for a better price at this location. bottom line.

    A great budget hotel in New York, excellent location, a minimum charm and a great service (specially because of David, the bellboy, helpful, fun and always ready to help). We will definitely go back to the Larchmont.

    I haven't been here in years but when I went to visit the city, this was the place to stay because of the price. You share the bathroom and the rooms are small but I would gladly go back and stay here anytime.

    We stayed at the Larchmont Hotel during a terrible heat wave in New York.  Our room stayed beautifully cold thanks to the great air conditioning.  The lobby was also a nice place to hang out - with free internet access, comfy chairs, brochures, and helpful staff available at all hours.  The rooms are clean and a continental breakfast is included in a dining room.  That is a nice way to meet other guests and share travel tips.   The location couldn't be better - walking distance to union square, the village, main boulevards, and subways.

    The Larchmont is a great place to send visiting friends and acquaintances - because sharing your studio apartment for more than 48 hours is just a bit too harrowing and intimate.  

    It's affordable ($85-115 bucks a night for a single).  
    It's awesomely located (11th btw. 5th & 6th).  
    It's interiors are clean & has an elevator.  

    The only downside is that it has tiny shared bathrooms, however, this is ameliorated by in room sinks.

    A secret that I only share with a select few! I don't tell anyone because I am afraid prices will go up... Don't blow your money on a hotel- DUH! Get out and do the city.... Most of your day will be out and about. If you went to NYC and spent all your time in a hotel, then you shouldn't be there! Save your money for the good stuff.....

    2.5 STARS. RETURN TO SENDER, ADDRESS UNKNOWN. Ummmm. 4 stars for this hotel?? 5 Stars!!!!!!!?????!! Only if (a) all you do is sleep and get a shower and leave by dawn (b) one is heavily medicated or intoxicated &/or (c) mostly all you care about is location/price. The truth is this place has location and pricing in its favour. The truth is the hotel looks great from the outside. The truth is they have nice people to help you. The truth is the inside is old, tired, cramped and has a pungent aroma that cannot be adequately described in words nor should it be. The bathrooms are cramped, felt dirty and were hard to maneuver. Oh, and did I mention the smoker in the next room with his television going all night through the paper thin walls? And don't get me started on the smell from the air conditioning unit. As I did not run for the hills, I generously and objectively give this hotel a 2.5 STAR rating. If most of all you care about is location and price, then by all means knock yourself out at the larchmont. Next time in NYC, I'll pay more, smile and be reminded of the 'bargain' at 27 West 11th Street then enjoy the comforts of a clean, well maintained, updated, sound proof and great smelling room and hotel somewhere else in beautiful Greenwich Village and beyond. Travellers beware and enjoy your next trip to awesome NYC!!! Real life Real Drama Real Reviews. The truth is out there.

    We stayed at this hotel largely due to its location. Great greenwich location and at an affordable price which was less than $150. However, low price usually equates to low expectations.

    The rooms were ok. A little cramped but do-able. This place is livable but nothing luxurious or modern etc. The rooms come with a TV and we had a sink as well. It's a shared bath situation. Fortunately for us, the bathroom was just next to our room. The issue I have with this place is not all rooms actually belong to the hotel. I believe there are a couple of long-time (senior) residents living here. When we first went up to the room assigned to us, we were rather shocked to see a queer looking person cynically peering at us from the slightly ajar door. It FREAKED the hell out of us! I was literally scared when I had to go take a shower next door. OMG, if not for the need to have been in Greenwich Village to settle a few issues the next day, I wouldn't have stayed here. Doubt I will again. There are cheaper hotels to be had in NYC in other locations e.g. UES OR better hotels for a little more.

    I must have gotten very lucky because I had a great room, right next to the shower, and I had a wonderful experience here. Clean, comfy, close to everything, and cheap. What more could you ask for? I also appreciated that there were bathrobes and slippers to use for the walk to the shared bath. And complimentary shampoo, soap, shower cap, and sewing kit. And hairdryer. I mean, add all this with a fourth night free and you get the best damn deal in NYC. Please, though, don't go expecting the Hilton. If you think small European style hotel (no frills), then you will be more than happy with your stay. I thought the street was charming, and so was the interior of the building (foyer), and it really made me feel as if I were living in NYC and not just staying at a hotel for the weekend. Oh yeah, and my room was very quiet, facing a courtyard surrounded by brownstones. A true experience.

    Location, location, location! Close to everything and in a residential area so you almost feel like you live there.

    I have stayed here at least 5 times over the years and it remains consistent. Request a queen room with a sink inside because it is a little bigger and it's nice to have that convenience.

    The shared bathrooms isn't that big of a deal because there are enough of them and people are generally respectful and keep it clean.

    Horrible!!! I called to reschedule my reservation over 36 hours before hand. I called them and the very unfriendly staffer (Salisha) informed me that there was nothing she could do to prevent my card from being charged. I asked for a manager and was told there was none. She told me the only thing I could do was write an email to Reservations. I did that and was again told there was nothing they could do. This time by Jackie. And there was still no manager! There was an Assistant Manager, but he/Jim was off today and could not be reached. Stay at a normal chain and save yourself the aggravation!

    I stayed here two years ago with two other friends, we shared one of their larger rooms and they brought in a small bed.  The location couldn't have been better and it was just an all around great place to stay.  It's adorable from the street and you felt sort of like you lived there when you came home at night, which is fun for all us non-newyorkers.  I used to have another go-to bargain place that I always stayed at on the Upper West Side, but since their renovations they went upscale and got rid of the college residents and bunk beds for tourists.  Larchmont - thanks for being there, I'm about to go make a reservation right now!

    Overall I would have to recommend this place because of it's price and location.  This place is especially good for those on a budget.  

    However many things about this place are dumpy.  The door of our room had a huge gap around it that was so bad that light and smells would come right in.  Particularly the smell of cigarette smoke and pot smoke from an adjacent room.  Never mind that this was supposedly a non smoking hotel.  I guess they must've also had a huge gap around their door too!

    The shared bathrooms were in a bit of disrepair, as the toilet seat was loose and nearly coming off ... and the toilet paper dispenser was one of these public restroom type that only lets you take two tiny sheets before it locks!  Come on here, we are adults not junior high school students!  

    Also, the sink in our room was barely attached to the wall.  

    Now for the upsides.  To my amazement, there were NO roaches or waterbugs.  We had a nice view looking out onto brownstones on the street, the shared bathrooms seemed to be vacant when we needed them to be and, of course, the location and price were simply outstanding.  You can walk to all of the best of the Village and you will be very close to the subways to go everywhere else.

    I've stayed here on three separate occasions and I have to say that for the money, it's really not bad.  The walls may be a touch thin, but I've never had a problem falling asleep here.  There are sinks in the rooms which help take the sting out of having the toilets and showers down the hall, but I've never had to wait to use either.  The location is a short walk from Union Square where you can catch a train to anywhere you need to go, and the wifi is free.  If you're looking for an economic, clean, and safe lodging solution in a convenient part of the city and you don't need frilly extras, the Larchmont is worth considering.

    I was there May 30 the thru June 3rd - First time I stayed there - Had concerns about the shared baths - only 1 day had a short wait for the shower - Clean shower clean room basic with Ikea furniture.Provides robes and slippers, good quality soaps and shampoo. Hairdryer and sink in the room.  Room are Small but functional-. closet, desk and Tall narrow dresser, sink.  bed TV with limited chanels.   Free continental breakfast makes this a great value- good Coffee, Decaf, Multiple Tea choices, Apple & Orange Juice. Toast, jelly, croissants, sweet rolls -pleasant counter staff.  A person in the cafe said - and its true - the place was clean even in the corners and under the bed - Something not always found in big name hotels. It is close to 4-5 subway stops. Front desk staff was WONDERFUL - very helpful once they got to know you. They are very willing to accommodate requests such as holding your bags if you are going to explore more of the the city after check out.  I would return - - I hope to in October.

    Stayed here last weekend during an NYC visit with a friend. It was a cute hotel -- perfect location near the West Village; clean, quiet. Our room was small, but fine. Paid $130 for a Friday night. Bathrooms are in the hall, college dorm room-style, but it wasn't a big deal at all. They give you old-school keys instead of digital card keys, which felt quaint. The only small problem I had during my stay was with the shower -- maybe I'm slow, but I couldn't figure out how to turn off the water!  I turned both knobs every which way, but the water still flowed. My friend came in to save me. :)

    Surprisingly nice. Very affordable hotel in a quiet neighborhood minute away for Village life. Each dorm-size room has its own sink. Two toilets and showers are shared with a few others rooms. You even get slippers to walk to/from the bathroom. Free breakfast (toast, muffins, croissants, juice, coffee). Kitchen and fridge shared on floor, though I didn't use it.

    Had a great experience at this hotel.  Everything was clean, tidy, and never had to wait for the shared bathroom/showers.  
    Loved the location and the ability to blend into the neighborhood without feeling super touristy.
    They also offered complimentary use of internet on a laptop in the lobby.  While on my trip I realized I had to print out a document and submit it on a deadline...the staff let me print and fax my document for free.  I was extremely relieved to have their help!

    I really hate leaving bad reviews, but this place is an ultimate dump. The sheets were dirty, the room was horrible, small, stinky, dark, and my bf saw a cockroach!!!! It had a common bath which was ridiculously small and impractical, although moderately clean. Breakfast was a joke, a lady guarding food like a bulldog and giving away only tiny "servings". I am really not picky but this was the worst place I have stayed in my life, very creepy and uncomfortable. Reception girl was nice and smiling but that couldn't change the horrible conditions of our stay. Add a few more bucks and go somewhere decent. It's New York, do not spoil it with this place.

    I'm so happy to have found this place!  Great location close to several subway stations.  Great choice if you plan on using your room as simply a place to sleep.  I stayed in a room with one double bed, desk, and sink.  Surprisingly, the hotel provides bathrobes, slippers, and a small kit which includes soap, shampoo, conditioner, a shower cap, and a sewing kit.  Way more than I expected for the price!  

    Not for the high maintenance traveler, but wonderful for the rest of us!

    My better half and I stayed here in July and it was a great place for what we came to NY for.  The staff was always very courteous and helpful.  The shared bathrooms were always clean and fresh smelling.  The location in Greenwich village is ideal, there are many subway locations for you to get around and besides you everything else is within walking distance.  I have no problem staying there again.

    three months of NY 4 NY research, beginning in July, yielded this choice, and here is my final assesment:

    finding the llarchmont was the result of a labor of love, all I can say is: You get what you pay for. It was overall decent.

    The rooms were warm and clean. The staff was pretty professional, a bit busy and a tiny bit overwhelmed when their front desk staff of two (soemtimes one!) is busy.

    The good:
    They are courteous and organized
    They hold your luggage free of charge if your flight leaves early
    They have pastries, coffee and such downstairs in the cafeteria from 8-10ish
    They provide robes and slippers
    The rooms have cable tv & heat with AC
    All the entries require key entry
    Room rates are a good bargain (a lil over $400 for 4 nights during a holiday weekend)

    The Bad:
    No iron, not even one to borrow from the front desk
    Shared bathrooms... (this isnt too bad actually, the water is hot enough andthe pressure is good and TP always stocked)

    The Ugly
    I had read other reviews (not on yelp, trip advisor?) that there was a bed bug prob and noticed in our room that the mattresses were sealed. While I appreciated this, i was grossed out by the fact that they might still be in the sheets, top cover or crawling around under me while I was sleeping. I bought a can of Off! for extra measure and didnt have any bites.... its just unsettling, as i am unreasonably scared of bugs (except spiders... go figure!)

    We had a hot water pipe in our room that made our room so warm that we didnt even use the sheets

    The location was good, lots of untouristy great eats in walking dist (we walked alot, i consider 8 blocks within walking dist) see my NY 4 NY list.

    Overall, the stay was good, might do it again. If you need a place to rest your head with not frills for a decent price, this is it. The frills woulda been nice, but just werent in our budget.

    I would recc this place for a winter stay

    I have not stayed here in a long time.  But it was a great place to stay the several times I did.  If you just want a safe/clean place to crash...this is it. Cheap. Clean. No private bathrooms (sucks, but not as bad as you think), I have read they have a bed bug problem....horrible. But then again many hotels have them these days.

    While planning my first return to NYC in 17 years, I was pretty shocked at the hotel prices. My go-to place on the Upper West Side had escalated past my budget. I found the Larchmont Hotel online, and couldn't believe that a place on a beautiful street in the West Village could be so inexpensive. Since my apartment in New York in the 70s was only 6 feet wide, I didn't mind the small size, and it was very well-organized with a view over the cute street. I made reservations ($99 weekdays, $119 Fri/Sat for a "cozy" room). I checked the Bed Bug List and it wasn't on there, and was indeed squeaky clean. Never had to wait for the bathroom or shower just down the hall - one toilet room and one toilet/shower combo were always available, shared among four rooms. There was a sink, bathrobe and hair dryer in my room. Real croissants, plain and almond, with toast, butter, tea, coffee and orange juice in the downstairs mini-cafe (free continental breakfast). Many visitors from outside the U.S. which was great. Super nice staff, allowed drop-off of luggage both before checking in and after checking out. I'll definitely stay there again - walking distance to great jazz (go to Smalls), Washington Park, all subways, lots of eateries. Happy to spend all the money I saved on great restaurants and entertainment.

    Location = 5* (All you need to do is have brunch at Elephant and Castle to appreciate being on W 11th)
    Room = 4* (Small, but perfect for two)
    Bedding = 3* (Clean sheets, but old thin covers and squeaky mattress)
    Price/value = 2* (It's cheap, but its not worth a dime if you get woken up at 8am on a Sunday!)

    Based on the price, I had very low expectations. What I didn't expect was having a room next to one of the communal showers AND directly in front of the door leading into the stairwell. The room is cheap, but it's not worth $130/night when you get woken up by a housekeeper banging around for 30 minutes. Honestly, couldn't the two bathrooms wait to be cleaned until after check out?!?!

    What a gem! This hotel far exceeded my expectations especially for the price we got (only a day in advance too.) I searched yelp for a well rated hotel at low cost when I found out we were taking an unexpected trip to NYC. Booking over the phone was easy and pleasant. Arriving at the hotel we were greeted in the main office area and check in took less than five minutes (while our friends staying at the Days Inn took over half an hour.)

    We were given a set of real keys which was nice compared to those little plastic cards that never seem to work right. The hallways yes are a little cramped, but I didn't mind that at all when we saw the size of our room! It was very spacious even with the queen bed and large desk with two chairs. Our view from the 6th floor was amazing, you could see the city lights and other buildings surrounding us.

    The location is perfect for visiting Times Square to the North, or the Statue of Liberty down South. We were told about the breakfast downstairs and decided to check it out when we woke up. WOW! I've had plenty of hotel breakfasts and most of them you can tell they use cheap Costco type pastries and juices. Not the Larchmont. Decadent pastries, delicious juice and coffee, and the comfort of knowing your food hasn't been picked through. All the breakfast items are under a glass cover and an attendant stands behind a counter waiting to plate your choices. We most certainly will stay here again when visiting NYC.

    This place is a total gem in the village.  I've sent quite a few guests here if I didn't have room enough for them at my place.  Recently my parents were visiting and I had them stay here.  The loved it.  

    It's such a secret, halfway down 11th street between 5th and 6th avenue.  If you were walking down, you would not even notice it.  Looks just like one of the other brownstones on this historic block.  But step inside for a taste of comfort.  It's very reasonably priced because as with other B&Bs it has those Euro-style shared bathrooms that Americans don't much like.  

    Believe it or not you can stay here for as little as $90 for a single.  And no this is no backpackers hotel, it's a gorgeous prewar building right in the village.  

    I'm telling you if you haven't checked out this place, you should.  It will be a memorable stay for your guests...

    A very basic, cozy hotel in a great location! I stayed here over the weekend before Halloween and really enjoyed my stay. If you plan on spending a lot of time in your room, this is not the hotel for you. But in this area, why would you? The hotel is walking distance to a Union Square and lots of great restaurants and bars, as well as a lot of cute coffee shops. I was staying there for a conference, so I was uptown a lot, but I enjoyed the free breakfast and free wi-fi. We were also able to park on the street ALL WEEKEND for FREE (a huge plus)!
    Overall, this is a great hotel and I'm sure we'll be back again soon!

    Best described as budget boutique, Larchmont has minimal but serviceable accommodations in an otherwise pricey area.  

    The single rooms are basically 10'x15' boxes with everything scrunched together.  The water basin is in the room, but showers and toilets are shared via the hall in true dorm style.  The room has a short drawer closet, and the top shelf folds down to form a flimsy table.  

    So where's the boutique touch you say?  For starters - semi-designer soap, shampoo, and conditioner, a shower cap, and slippers too.  Oh, and they include a bathrobe!  

    A curious "continental" breakfast is included in the basement.  Besides coffee and OJ, there are a few kinds of sliced bread and mini pastries, but these are curiously shielded from public access by plastic plate covers and an unsmiling matronly attendant wielding tongs.  You point to what you want, and she places it on a plate for you.  I didn't get the point of this service...

    $110 for a weeknight and $125 for weekends.

    Great place to stay, on a budget or not. If  on a budget, it's even sweeter.. Rooms are clean, but very utilitarian.. showers, bathrooms are clean and never a wait.  Staff was friendly, knowledgeable about local restaurants, very helpful.  
    Very well located near the heart of Greenwich village, NYU.. rooms are neat, well appointed.

    The price of a room per night is a STEAL for the location. The rooms are small (but you're in NYC, so you should expect that) and offer the very basic, but they are clean and safe and you're in the heart of Greenwich Village with a ton of shops, restaurants, bars, etc.

    The staff is polite and helpful and didn't even seem bothered that I had booked a room for 1person but was clearly sharing the room with someone else. The shared bathrooms were always clean and I hardly noticed anyone else in the entire hotel.

    It made my stay in NYC pretty comf and convenient. I'd definitely recommend it to travelers on a budget or to anyone who doesn't mind saving money on accommodations and spending the rest on food, travel, etc..

    Oh yes, NO BED BUGS EITHER!

    Quite excellent. Can't beat the price for the location. I'm talking $100/night or less. It's very clean and exceeded my expectations for the price.

    The shared bathrooms situation was better than I expected as well. For one thing, you get a key for the hallway in addition to your keys for the room and the front door. So there was less "traffic" than you might expect. I barely heard anyone else in the hall. It felt safe.

    The room itself was very clean. There's a sink & mirror in the room. It's a lot nicer to primp & prep in your own room than in a shared area. Some other little touches- bathrobe & slippers. Free wifi. There's a continental breakfast in the morning. It's apparent the staff make an effort to make it a nice experience. I would stay there again.

    3.5 stars.

    Simply put.  The pros:
    * Greenwich Village location
    * Cheap rate (to NYC standard)
    * Fairly simple and pleasant staff service
    * Last-minute booking (was able to reserve a room days before the trip)

    The cons:
    * No private bathrooms
    * Small room (but can't complain for the price that I paid)
    * Modest furnishings (again, can't really complain for the price)

    If the other local inns and B&Bs are all booked again like this past time for me, then I'd consider this place.

    For $120 average per night, located in the quiet Greenwich Village neighborhood...this place isn't a bad place to stay in New York City. Being that every hotel in NYC is either really expensive or bed bug galore.

    I was greeted with a nice doorman who took care of my suitcases while I waited for check-in time (3pm). The hotel gives you a set of keys (3) which ONE opens to go into the hotel, ONE to open to go to your hotel layer, and lastly, ONE to your room. It can be quite difficult and annoying sometimes but hey, what can you do? There is one elevator so it may take sometime to retrieve. The hotel room (double) was very small...but decent. It included a sink, toiletries, towels, slippers, robe, t.v., desk, phone, and a bed. The bathroom was outside in the hall which I really didn't enjoy but yet again, its NYC. The hotel is very Europeanesque.

    The hotel comes with complimentary breakfast every morning which is on the lowest level. It came with the basics. It also had WiFi.

    One thing that is really nice about the location is that it is situated in a very quiet neighborhood. Down the street was a liquor store and Ray's Pizza. The nearest subway station was the 4 and that can take you either uptown or downtown.

    I really loved the location! I would come back here again. (:

    NOTE: If you're staying at the Larchmont, I suggest you to bring your own flip flops to shower.

    Imagine a boutique hotel, now scruff it up a little, add competent helpful staff, bare basic rooms and you'll start with a good picture of the larchmont.  For $130 a night for a double bed on a pretty tree lined street in Greenwich village you might not be able to do much better, but be prepared to feel like you're on a mission trip or in a college dorm.  The smells of ramen noodles cooking on a hot plate, mixed with some bad body spray permeated our narrow hallway.  
    Breakfast is served in a fellowship hall looking basement, but I thought it was skippable, think tiny cardboard muffins and coffee in styrofoam.

    Bargain - 4
    Scenery outside - 4
    Scenery inside - 2

    The vibe vascillates from charming to worn to drab and almost lands on
    utilitarian.

    Not recommended for a romantic getaway.

    We could not have gotten any better for the price we paid.  The Larchmont was very clean and the bed was super comftorable. I have a tempurpedic King Size at home so I was shocked at how easily me and the Boyfriend slept in the smaller bed.  

    The room was actually bigger than I had imagined with a decent size closet, desk and dresser.  Having the sink and large mirror over the dresser was very convenient for getting ready to go out.

    This was my first experience with the shared bathrooms and like most of the other reviewers we had no problems.  We never had to wait for a bathroom and rarely saw any other guests.  The bathrooms were always very clean.

    The small flat screen TV is a nice addition but we only had time to turn it on for a few minutes while resting before dinner.  There aren't many channels but it didnt really matter to us.

    Check in and check out was very quick.  Larchmont is where I'll be staying for all my future trips to NYC!

    What a great find!   It is a real treat to call one of New York's prettiest brownstone blocks home for a couple of days...especially for $100 a night!

    Nothing sexy, but clean, comfortable, fantastic location, and did I mention $100/night?

    You have to share a bathroom (2 actually) in the hallway, but they are very clean, and they provide a robe and slippers.

    This will be my address for all future NYC visits.

    Tremendous value, great location ... what more could I want?

    I got a small room with a double bed, breakfast, wifi, AC for $119 per night.  That isn't much more than a hostel, and yet it was much more! Private space - yippee! The room was clean, big enough for a desk and sink and had space for my bags and folding bike, a closet to hang stuff up, etc.  It could have easily accommodated another person, and I'm likely to book this room again with my husband.

    Shared bath was just next door - small, but clean.  The only thing I would suggest is that they use mixing valves in the shower since water pressure and temperature are an issue during the morning rush.  

    And it was quieter than any room I've had in NYC, Boston, or Chicago EVER!  Some bird noise in the morning - that's it.  I can't explain how much I value not having to put in my earbuds or earplugs.

    The staff were friendly, responsive, helpful, etc.  Very nice stay overall.

    We stayed here during my daughter's college Welcome Weekend. We chose the Larchmont for its price and location, as well as the many positive reviews. We will definitely stay here again!

    We opted for the small queen room - $140/night, can't beat it in NYC! Yes, the room was small, but it was actually larger than I had imagined. Our room was clean, the a/c was cold, and the bed was comfy.

    We hadn't experienced the "shared bathroom" situation before, but it worked fine for us. The bathrooms were clean, we never ran into anyone else, and having a sink/mirror in our room made it even easier.

    The staff is friendly and helpful. Another plus - this place is very secure! Keys are needed for entrance from the lobby/street, the hall, and the room (which has two locks & a chain.) We felt safe in the building, and the neighborhood is great.

    We're not talking high-end frills, of course, but if you are looking for a decent place to sleep for cheap, this is it.

    I think that the first line of any review should be prefaced with "you get what you pay for". I described it to my boss (who was horrified that I didn't pick a better hotel) as one step up from a hostel.

    And for a safe place to lay my weary traveller's head for the night --- I think $140 (inc. taxes) was well worth it.

    First off, the hotel is old. The decor is old, the smell is old, the carpets are old, the beds are old. However, everything looks to be clean and it wasn't as if the towels or robes they provide are dirty.

    The shared bathrooms take some getting used to, but are kept clean. The showers are dinky--I'm 5'9 and 120 lbs and had some difficulty fitting in. The toiletries they provide are minimal: shower, conditioner, soap. Otherwise nothing to report there.

    Free wi-fi, easy bag checking procedure, overall though I have no plans to stay here again as this was used in a pinch (I had a conference at NYU and registered at the last second). However, if you need a quick place to stay and just need a roof over your head in a central location, this hotel is fine.

    I love the Larchmont for many reasons.  Mainly,  the great location and low prices  

    The staff are friendly and welcoming and they are super willing to accommodate requests such as holding your bags if you are going to explore the city after check out.  The prices are low for the great location.  They are located right down the street from all of the great restaurants, coffee shops, and stores in the village.  

    Now, there is a reason that the rates are rather low.  This is a European style hotel, such as a pension or other low cost establishment.  Most of the bathrooms are shared, although you do have a sink of your own in your room.  I would bring flip flops to shower in if you are a germaphobe.  The bathrooms and showers are usually pretty clean, but I know the idea of having to walk down the hall to pee can irk some people.  The rooms are pretty bland, kind of like what you would get at a motel.  The view isn't bad, if you get one.  The beds aren't the most comfy, but they are an inexpensive place to rest your head for the night.

    The Larchmont is a no-frills hotel in the village.  It may have its downsides but it also has it's charm.  I will continue to be a patron of the Larchmont because I know I can count on a friendly face when I check in and not break the bank staying in one of my favorite neighborhoods of NYC

    We spent 5 nights at the Larchmont last week, and will return.  The hotel is eccentric, being like hotels back in the 1920's, but it's clean and managed by a fine staff.  The furniture is Ikea, and you share bathroom facilities with 6 other rooms, but that was not a problem.  The hotel provides a bathrobe and slippers for each guest to protect your modesty.  Everything was scrupulously clean, there were no 4 or 6 legged creatures, there IS free wi-fi, the location (Greenwich Village) is outstanding (close to stores and restaurants, a few blocks from the Subway) and the building, with individual sections of floors being locked, feels quite secure.  A modest, free breakfast is available in the basement cafe, as is a small kitchen in each part of the hotel.  This is not the place for luxurious amenities, but it's cheap (for Manhattan) and since I mainly slept and bathed there it was all I needed.  To repeat myself, I will return to the Larchmont.

    Imagine if your $250/night hotel provided you free tickets to a Broadway show each night or a free dinner at a nice restaurant. That's how we feel about the Larchmont, at $119 during the week for our stay, we didn't have to worry about the budget for our trip, and could spend our money enjoying all the City has to offer. The location, as many others have said, is as good as it gets, central to everything and a great spot for exploring the Village, Uptown and Downtown.

    Staff was nice, we dropped our bags after getting in on a 6am red eye, then left our bags after checkout to explore the City for one last day before a late flight out.

    Our room was clean (Room 3E3), and was updated in the past couple of years with some Ikea furniture. WC and shower in the hall were small, but clean and almost always available. The room and street were quiet, the bed comfortable. The provided robe and slippers made late night/early morning trips out into the hall easier. Free morning coffee and basic pastries help stretch your budget even more.

    This place has so much more character than some big chain hotel, you actually feel like you're living in the City.

    Nearby highlights:
    -We enjoyed bagels at Murray's Bagels on 6th, not the best bagel (Russ and Daughters or Ess-a-bagel were the best we had) in the City but very good
    -Peacefood Cafe on E 11th had excellent vegetarian food (chickpea fries and raw cheesecake were amazing!)
    -We didn't try French Roast just down the street at the corner of 6th Ave and W 11th, but it looked like a nice place for one open 24 hours
    -Analogue on W 8th a good spot for high quality cocktails and music a couple of nights a week
    -Zinc Bar was our favorite local jazz spot, with free seats at the bar and a good classy vibe, just South of Washington Square
    -Taim off W 11th St and 7th had excellent falafels,
    -Mamoun's Falafel off W 3rd was great for late night hole in the wall falafels
    -GustOrganics was another veggie friendly spot open late on 6th Ave

    We stayed here end of June 2014. We did not have a good experience. Management responded, we gave it another try. New York for a wedding over Labor Day Wkend. Room was spacious, clean, view of the lake. We couldnt have been more pleased. Ordered coffee from room service in the morning, it arrived in 15 min. We then had breakfast in the Exec lounge which was very good. We are going to stay here again on our next trip to New York . What a difference from our last stay.

    Fantastic location in Greenwich Village. Brief walk to NYU for college tour. Queen room on 2nd floor, facing the street, was a steal for $165 on Columbus Day weekend. Spotlessly clean, including shared bath in hallway. Friendly, helpful staff. We enjoyed the French Roast brasserie on the corner.

    Can not be a better location. The hotel is located on the Magnificent Mile, which is the main tourist area of New York. You can walk to countless attractions, shops and restaurants. It is an exquisite hotel with spacious rooms and impeccable service. When staying at the hotel, light finest costume to go to dinner in the hotel restaurant, for that is how the public will attend.

    This little budget hotel packs quite a punch. It is basic and old but very clean and in a  fabulous location where you'd pay much more anywhere else.
    The staff are helpful too.
    All the rooms are equipped with sink, blow drier,  AC/heat,  robe, and  slippers. You do need to  walk down the hall to the shared toilets and showers. They are kept very clean. There is also kitchen on each floor if you prefer to prepare your own food.
    Free breakfast too makes this a great value.

    I came back here a month or so later for a five day stay after my initial visit. There is one thing I'm absolutely sure of. I saved a lot of money in the process.

    However, with the longer visit I paid more in other ways than willing to in the future. I opted for their smallest room which with tax is around $105 a night. Unheard of in the city. The size of the room was not the issue. Plenty big enough for one person not really spending much time in the hotel (at 6' 2" I can touch both sides of the walls when standing). Lack of consistent wireless access and a room that didn't agree with my nose proved to leave a more unpleasant memory a few weeks after the trip. I have no issue with European style bathrooms either.

    What I did have a problem with was sitting in the lobby working on my laptop because there was none in the room and overhearing differing stories about the lack of wireless service. It was out almost five days running. Why advertise a service that really doesn't work in parts of the building? One guest actually checked out days early as a result. I finally had a chat with someone that acknowledged it simply doesn't work much of the time. So, how about this: either fix it, or tell guests the real story instead of "we can reset the router for you if you'd like." No, that doesn't fix the problem. I do web development for a living and I can tell them this is a fixable problem. Someone at the top simply doesn't want to fix it.

    The coffee and breakfast remained sub-par. However, being a coffee fan I was happy to walk the 7-8 short blocks to Third Rail for a world class cup. The first time it was like 2-3 days. I thought a smaller room would work for me for five days but the cumulative effect of the lack of wireless and the smelly room proved to be a burr in my rear end a few weeks later. Think next time I'll head back to a proven destination that's affordable in another area of town.

    My apology to the Yelper who wrote me and asked a few questions. I'd take that recommendation back if I had it to do over.

    I specifically asked for  a quiet room at the end of the hall when I registered.  What I got was a room next to the bathroom.  The slamming of the bathroom door all night was bad enough but when people started to take a shower (starting at 6am) the noise from the water pipes were so loud it sounded like dogs howling!!!!

    I told the front desk person about my experience and she couldn't care less.

    The money I saved did not make up for the lack of sleep I got.  

    It's true - you get what you pay for.  I won't make the same mistake again with this place.

    I've been debating on how I feel about The Larchmont, but I think I've finally made this important decision.

    Four stars.

    My first time to the East Coast was a little over a month ago. Jesse and I went to DC and NYC to celebrate my graduation. As everyone knows, NYC is expensive. As we searched for hotels, we started to realize our wallets were about to get raped. Fortunately, we stumbled upon The Larchmont. It's located in Greenwich Village, in a great location, close to everything. We walked from our hotel to The Empire State Building, then took a cab to Katz Deli, then a cab back to the hotel. Then we walked from the hotel to the Financial District, The Freedom Tower, etc... back to the hotel. From the hotel, we took a short cab ride to Times Square and... well, you get the point. We saw A LOT in a short amount of time just walking from the hotel!

    We paid $150-180/a night for a queen bed room. The room comes with a small sink & mirror area, but not a bathroom because it has SHARED bathrooms on each floor. Now, listen... I know this sounds frightening. I am a bit of a germaphobe, so I feel you. Let me tell you, this place is CLEAN. Unfortunately, Jesse and I didn't discover the 2nd, larger bathroom on our floor until the very end of our stay, we still had zero problems with the whole shared bathroom thing. They were clean and comfortable. There was never a time where I had to wait to use it. Every time I needed it, it was available. Same for Jesse. If that is your main concern, feel free to get over it and book your room now.

    The AC was continuously pumping, so we always had a perfectly cool room in the midst of the humid, sticky heat! They provide slippers and robes, which are fun and comfy. The bed wasn't super comfy, but it wasn't bad and you're getting a freaking DEAL here, people! Overall, yes, I would stay here again. It was a great location and it was comfy. A great price for a great place to stay. Thanks for helping me save some pennies!

    PS- They recommend parking in a garage a few blocks over... your wallet will DEFINITELY be raped. It's worth it to have a secure place to keep your car though.

    Stayed here on a layover while passing through New York, NY a few months ago. I don't look for amenities when choosing a hotel in another city since my view is that if I'm visiting another city I want to get out and see the city rather than the inside of a hotel room. I look for three basic things in hotels, location, cleanliness and price. The Ohio House provided all three.

    Great location- always love Larchmont Hotel - accommodations were nice, buy very shortsighted policy to charge for even if you're a Hilton Honors member- not good business. Concierge didn't come close to understanding traffic in Chicago and we were nearly late for a concert. Classy hotel like Drake should have robes in rooms. Overall we love hotel, but just they need a little more attention to detail.

    Rooms are very small, and few amenities come with the high price of the room. For example, you may use the pool for free, but you have to pay a fee per day to use the fitness equipment. There are nicer hotels in NY that have a better value for the price.

    A nice cozy little hotel that makes you feel like you never left home in the first place. My friend found this place for me when I came up to NY for vacation. I really like the way the rooms are set up, a small bed nice for 1-2 people, a desk, air conditioning for those hot summer days, a closet with 2 bath robes, a small TV, and a sink.. Yes, a sink, because this hotel has the shower and toilet in the hallways for all of us to share. It would be my only complaint.. but hey at least the bathrooms are always kept nice and clean and also each shower and toilet is separated with doors so if someone needs to shower while you`re doing your business on the toilet someone can use that shower.

    When my friends and I come back we`re gonna come back here to sleep! It`s cheap, nice, and cozy. What more can you ask for?

    Stayed here for two nights during the week. Hotel was great,  it was clean, free wifi, quiet, comfy beds, and no bed bugs. Can't beat the location for the price. Every room has it's own sink, two robes, slippers, shampoo, soap,  and towels. I had never stayed in a hotel with a shared bathroom but every floor has two and i never had to wait to use it. Every floor also has a small kitchen with a fridge and table. Continental breakfast was awesome! Room temperature was comfortable and has a fan, window unit, and heater.

    My husband and I decided to check out the Larchmont Hotel.  We usually stay at another place out in LES, but decided to see what Larchmont was all about.  The hotel itself was very cute, and it seemed as if the lobby area was clean.  I like how it was very secure (you have to buzz in for the front lobby, key for the second entrance, and a key to your room).  The employees at the front desk were very professional and friendly, and the bellhop was also very sweet and friendly as well, who gently guided us to our room upstairs.  they have singles, doubles, queen, and family suites, with shared toilet/shower for the floor (2 each).  The room itself was very clean, and convenient with the stand-alone sink.  There is even a small desk in there if you have to set up your computer or what not.  You have your own window unit for AC as well as a ceiling fan, which was very nice for the hot weekend we were there.  Basic toiletries were provided (shampoo, soap, and a shower cap).  I liked how there were bathrobes provided in your suite so it's more convenient when you go in/out of the shower.  TV has cable channels with good signal.  The communal bathrooms are bit of a tight squeeze, so if you're claustrophobic, it might be an issue.  The toilet paper also prohibits you in using a lot, as it only allows you to get 2 pieces at a time (the way the dispenser works).  Think of a dorm-style living; we didn't have any issue with noises within our rooms (considering it was sold out for the weekend), but if you do step out in the hallway, you could overhear voices from the suites. They also offer free complimentary breakfast downstairs (I thought the elevator was so old-school and so cool - a smooth ride), where they have muffins, croissants, coffee, and juice, in a small cafe-like room with plenty of tables and chairs.  I think the only issue was that the access to the train wasn't as convenient as the other hotels we've stayed at.  I'm glad we checked this place out!

    I stayed here for 4 nights in October 20014 and it was AWESOME.

    This hotel is cheap for Manhattan standards & it's Greenwich Village location is great! The location is the true selling point. The quiet street is located in an amazing area of the Greatest City in the World.  I think the idea of "Shared Bathrooms" scares lots of people off, but there are only 6 Rooms to floor or so and those rooms have two (very clean) bathrooms to share. The two showers and two toilettes per floor seemed to be plenty ..... And then there was a sink, mirror, hair-dryer, bath-robe and slippers in the bedroom.

    The small basement cafe offers a very simple breakfast.  The toast, pastry's, cereal  and coffee were a great energizing food source to start the day.

    I arrived on a red-eye flight and took the subway from JFK all the way to right down the street from the Hotel..... I then was able to leave my bags at the hotel for a few hours until I was able to check in. The Hotel also watched my bag after I checked out for a few hours before I headed to the airport.
