Hi Everyone,

I am travelling to New York for around a month with 2 girlfriends in June!

We are having difficutly deciding on where to stay! The internet is great but so many places have terrible reviews.

We would like a place with a kitchen to save money on food and are looking to stay in the SOHO/EAST VILLGAE/NOLITA area!

Can anyone reccommend a place for us to stay?? Not sure if we want to do the whole backpackers thing either!

Thanks for you help!!!

Stay somewhere up near 57th street on the west side of Central Park (somewhere just off of Broadway)--nice area area and easy access via the subway to Soho/East River (about 5 stops on the subway--and the subway cost is just $1.50 each way). It's about two stops from there (or even walking distance) to Times Square and the theatre district or over to Central Park.

I wouldn't recommend staying in Soho, since it's mostly a shopping district, so any hotels there will be really old. Also, it's just a short ways from New York University, so almost all the temporary housing is taken up by students.

Book online. Probably the best deal you will find in Manhattan.

Subway now cost's 2.00 each way, but free transfers bus to bus and bus to subway. Metro Cards are cheaper if public transportation is the way you will go, with weekly and monthly cards available.

Have fun!:)

Thanks for all of the replies!

We are still hunting around but have found a great affordable unhosted apartment!
