I have stayed at this hotel several times. It's location is fantastic -- permitting access to a fantastic corner of Manhattan, Greenwich and the West Villages. The Washington Square Hotel offers excellent value for any traveler and is perfect for anyone who wishes to avoid the experience of staying in midtown with the masses and have a sense of what it is like to live in New York.

I suggest to change the carpet on the floor because I smells very bad even they clean. The 2 twin beds deluxe room is too small. They also should unstop the bath tub because it is stuffed. I liked the location and the Washington Square Park in front of the Hotel and it is ver close to the main 5th and 6th Avenues.

The problem with noise was that the springs on the doors of the rooms are too strong, guests just let them go and they shut with a bang sufficient to wake us up. Also adjoining bathroom water noise is very loud. Breakfast area is inadequate, bit scruffy and not well managed by staff. High price for small rooms. Staff attitude was mixed. Great location.

The hotelroom I had was located on the first floor and is the less quietness room I ever had stayed in! You could here every single step taken in the room above me, or in the hallway. In addiont this hotel has aircondition boxes installed in the windows. This means that the noise from the streets will be like have the window open. The location of this hotel is the only nice thing to say about it. Takes about 10 minutes to walk to Soho (probably the best shopping area in NY)and about the same to walk to Union Square.

THe location was ideal for me, right beside Washington Square in one of my favourite parts of Manhattan. My room was fine, and the air-conditioning was effective and easy to operate (it isn't always in hotels!). It's a real hotel, serving real food in its restaurant. The included continental breakfast, with lots of juice, coffee/tea, fresh fruit and rolls, and more if you want it, is excellent, but the waiter service restaurant is much more pleasant than the rather dark self-service area.

I would have liked the CAFE to have been open after returning from NYU Lecture at 9 PM.......It would have provided a nice social area for all who attended the Seminar.

We had a pleasant stay at the WSH. Location is the main attraction here, right at the corner of Washington Square Park ("I Am Legend" anyone?), close to great restaurants and bars (and NYU). Room and bathroom were a bit small, so was the breakfast area, but this is Manhattan, got to give them some slack here. I recommend the Perilla restaurant (3 blocks away, 9 Jones Street) for diner, and Bruno Bakery at 506 Laguardia Pl for great coffee and pastries (yuuummy).
