    Great Value - When Everything Works

    Larchmont Hotel: Great Value – When Everything Works

    I stayed at the Larchmont Hotel for 7 nights in April of 2007. It’s a very cozy place on a quiet block in the upper part of the West Village, about 5 blocks north of Washington Square Park. It’s a great boutique, Euro-style hotel with small rooms, bathrooms down the hall, and – for New York – looooow prices.

    My single room was $80/night, $99/night for Friday and Saturday.

    On the positive side, the street is pretty quiet, the walls aren’t paper-thin, the housekeeping is great, every room has a sink, hair dryer, and desk, a TV with limited channels, and you get a robe and slippers to use. Though they don’t say so on their website, they do have internet access, though it isn’t wireless – you need to bring an Ethernet cable. A forgettable continental breakfast is included - hardly worth taking advantage of.

    The BIG negative was that, due to the boiler going out, there was no hot water. The staff was very apologetic, and, as compensation, the hotel took 30% off of my bill and paid for using the shower at the YMCA a few blocks away. They never did get it fixed, and, from what I understood, it was going to take a long while to get it working again.

    Would I stay here again? In a heartbeat! Besides the hot water, it was a wonderful experience.

    Unique Quality: One odd historical footnote about this place is that it is right across the street from an infamous address!

    You'll notice that #18 11th Street is different than the other houses on the block. That's because the original one was blown up in the early 1970's, when three members of the radical group the Weathermen accidentally detonated a bomb they were working on. They, of course, died. Actor Dustin Hoffman was living in #16 and was home when the bomb went off. He was not injured, but, not long afterwards, he moved out of the neighborhood.

    Directions: In Greenwich Village between 5th and 6th Ave on 11th Street

    Located in the heart of Greenwich Village, the Larchmont Hotel is not a good hotel, but not bad.
    My room was small yet clean in this old styled hotel. When I arrived there was an "out of order" sign on the shared toilet. On leaving for the evening I told the gentleman at the front desk. He was confused since he had not been informed about the need for a repair. However, when I returned the problem had been fixed.
    In the morning the "breakfast" was very small. One bagel and a coffee later I was served.
    At $104.00 total this may be a "good" value for the Big Apple but it was no great deal to me.

    Unique Quality: Quient.
    Provided slippers and a bathrobe.
    Color TV.
    A fan in the room.

    Directions: Greenwich Village

    On recommendation

    Quite neighbourhood. Decent rooms, price considered. Meager breakfast.

    Unique Quality: Centrally located, right off 5th Avenue. Close to a bunch of good restaurants and diners on 6th, even a WiFi Starbucks.

    $80-$120

    Unique Quality: What makes this hotel so great? Price and location. Staying in Manhattan is expensive and this hotel's rooms can under $100 (not inc. taxes). It's in the Village so finding somewhere good to eat in the evening is really easy. And the street it's on is really quiet. It only has shared bathrooms, but the rooms are clean and attractive, the staff friendly, the building is an old brownstone, and breakfast is included in the price.

    Directions: 27 W 11th Street between 5th and 6th - Greenwich Village a few blocks north of Washington Square

    Living less expensive (than in the rest of NYC)

    by

    The Larchmont Hotel in Greenwich is located in a quiet living area, but with bars, clubs and cafés nearby. 20 minutes walking distance to the Empire State Building in the north and 20 minutes to the Financial District in the South.
    Clean rooms, showers located on each floor, friendly people.
    Cheap for New York. I paid $64 per night.

    Directions: Located in the heart of the Village (Greenwich)

    About $80.

    Unique Quality: More charm and atmosphere than most hotels you can stay at in New York. It is a small place, so it is more personal and you are right in the heart of town - transportation gallor, great neighbourhood, a park at the end of the street. You can save tons on transportation as shopping and all the hopping nightlife is only a walk away.

    Beware: There are no individual bathrooms with each room, but that did not seem to faze my mother-in-law, who is very fussy about privicy.

    Directions: in Downtown New York, in Greenwich Village. Check out the link below to get the phone number, address, and current rates.

Definitely Pleased

by A TripAdvisor Member

This hotel was so much better than I had expected!! The rooms were comfortable, clean, and cozy. Although you do not get your own bathroom, the rooms come with a sink (so you can still brush your teeth in the privacy of your own room!) The bathrooms and showers were in the hallways- no biggie. The room was on the smaller side- but who wants to stay in a room all day long anyways!! This hotel was a good bang for the buck.

Happy as Larry

by A TripAdvisor Member

After looking at the reviews on tripadvisor, I thought I'd give the Larchmont a go. Sure, it's not a luxury hotel, but I didnt have any problems with it. I never had to wait to use the shower/toilet off my hallway, the room I had was quiet and overlooked all the neighbours yards.

It is, of course, in a great position. There are plenty of decent places to eat, which is good because your complimentary breakfast consists of a single croissant or muffin, so you cant stock up with food for the day!

All in all, for NYC, it's good value. I think you get what you pay for, and in this case it is a dependable hotel with comfy-enough rooms in a great location for a reasonable price. And things like the slippers/robe add a nice touch.

So unless I strike it lucky between now and when I'm next in NYC, I'll be back at the Larchmont.

Absolutely Lovely!

by A TripAdvisor Member

We were there for this past weekend and had a wonderful stay. The Larchmont has so much to offer. It is quaint and has such character. The staff are very friendly, the rooms small but comfortable. They provide a lovely robe and the most comfortable slippers I have ever had on. We will be sure to visit again.

European style

by TripAdvisor Member Penzgirl

If you've ever stayed in a small, low-cost European hotel you'll know what to expect at the Larchmont. It's genteel-shabby, old-style but well-kept.

It's on a tree-lined residential street in Greenwich Village; easy walk to village restaurants and shops; about four blocks to the subway. The staff was very nice and helpful. You get a key to the lobby, to your floor, and to your room, so you won't have to worry about intruders! (I felt safe here, a woman traveling alone.)

You go upstairs in a small elevator that arrives quickly despite its age. The hallways are just wide enough for two people to cross each other. The rooms come equipped with a wash basin, a robe and slippers, a small TV, air conditioner and ceiling fan, and Internet access (which I did not use.) Each hall has two toilets and two showers. I never had trouble getting access to either (it might be different on weekends) and they were clean. The only complaint I had was that one W.C. was so small I had to sit on the toilet at an angle. The bed was OK, and there was an extra pillow and blanket in the room. Everything was clean.

You can't beat the price, which came to $209 for two days, including tax. (There was a breakfast included, but I didn't go.) I do like more in the way of creature comforts & the Larchmont is pretty bare-bones. But if my choice was between staying here and staying in one of the $150 a night hotels that (according to the forums here) could include mildew, peeling wallpaper, bugs, rodents and mysterious intruders, I would pick the Larchmont for sure.
