The Harlem Flophouse:
Built originally in the 1890s as a family house, The Harlem Flophouse has four bed rooms (each with a full sized bed and a sink) sharing two antique bathrooms. The place is really artistic giving a sense of antiquity and richness. The Harlem Flophouse does not serve breakfast or dinner but there are many restaurants nearby such as Amy Ruth’s, Kitchenette, Chez Lucienne and Uptown Juice Bar.
A historic boutique hotel with Bohemian decor, located in the green West Village, The Jane is a good choice for travelers on budget. Rooms are so small with bunk-bed cabins and shared bathrooms so couples need to book for Captains Cabins which have bathrooms, full-sized beds and Wi-Fi. Even though, you can get a room with Hudson River views. The Jane Ballroom with an antique fire place, oriental rugs and contrasting couches adds a touch of elegance to the interior. It is worth noting that The Jane is not a family friendly hotel.
Other cheap hotels include Carlton Arms Hotel, a Bohemian haven decorated with outré artwork and The Bowery House with perfect location near the Lower East Side. These are the recommended hotels in New York if you are on a budget and only need a comfortable place to sleep at night. Remember to book in advance.
