I loved the Jane Hotel. Would recommend!

Posted Nov 25, 2014
Pros: The decor and architecture, the hotel staff, the rooms were amazing, the price is unbeatable.
Cons: I would have loved it if my room wasn't so hot, those radiators are crazy hot.
Location: The location was incredible. Right next to the Highline and cool bars, restaurants, subway, and the Hudson river. Very picturesque locale.
The Jane is charming & beautiful. The room was tiny but well appointed. Bed was firm & crisp. Bathrooms were clean & private even though it's shared. Great shower. The staff was friendly, professional, and adorable in their uniforms, like stepping into the past. The hotel itself is historic, beautiful, and creepy in a very cool way, a bit shabby, but very comfortable. I will definitely stay there again. A few things to be aware of... 1) Cafe Gitane is on the main floor of the hotel, but it is NOT part of the hotel. It's a beautiful, french style cafe & has lots of potential, but the service sucked at breakfast. The staff were 20-somethings mostly interested in socializing with each other & jamming to the music. They all cracked up at a patron who knocked a glass off the table when she was leaving, she was clearly embarrassed. Bad form. I had to stand up & wave to get served. The couple next to me waited & waited for their check, finally getting up to tap the server and ask for it. Evening service was better, but my waitress was making out with her boyfriend at the bar. Not super professional. 2) Heat was radiators, it was HOT in my room. I left the window open (30 degrees outside) & the air conditioner on so I could sleep. 3) Old hotel, had some strange smells, like urinal disinfectant cakes. I noticed it strongly when I first walked in, but after a day did not smell them at all, must have got used to it. Even with the issues, I would stay there again. Really enjoyable.

Consistently the best quality option at this price

Posted Nov 16, 2014
Pros: Location, bathroom cleanliness, bed linen quality for a cheaper hotel
Cons: Sound proofing!
Location: Meatpacking district a few streets up, so lots of fancy shops and funky restaurants. Or stroll down Bleecker Street to experience the village.
I've stayed at The Jane several times and it always delivers on what it promises. The rooms are clean, the bed linen is great quality, the wifi works, the bathrooms are cleaned frequently, the staff are attentive and it is in a great location. The only thing you need to know before you decide whether to book or not is whether you can cope with the cabin style rooms, they are small, the floor space is the width of a suitcase and you do have to be able to cope with small spaces if you're sharing (so have a bunk bed). It's much more manageable for one person in a single room, but I've done the bunk bed room 3 times and it doesn't bother me - but I think it's the core issue that divides whether people like The Jane or not. The other key thing is the noise, The Jane has a bar/club and it's super loud, so on weekends you really need earplugs (or to join in) and not have an issue with lots of people hanging around talking outside.

Wonderful hotel with a lot of history

Posted Nov 2, 2014
Location: Being at the foot of the High Line is amazing for any photographer. You are at a prime spot. So many wonderful neighborhood restaurants in the area.
The Jane has a wonderful amount of history which plays out in front of your eyes as you approach the steps and front doors. The overall feel takes you back a century and delivers a wonderful historical feel that sets The Jane apart every hotel in the city.

The hotel is charming, old world style, built in 1907. It's enormous victorian bar is an experience not to be missed. The restaurant Cafe Gitane is chic and delicious. The historical neighborhood provides an especially pleasant walk, quickly leading to a cluster of cafes and shops. I will definitely be returning for another stay!

Valué for Money

Posted Oct 4, 2014
Considering the price, it was better than I expected and I would be there again if alone and with no more than one piece of luggage. The only inconvenience is the distance from subway stations.

More cons than pros

Posted Sep 23, 2014
Pros: - Cleanliness - Location - HD TV in each room, with plenty of channels - Wifi that actually works Cons: - Very tiny rooms. This shouldn't come as a surprise, since it's mentioned in all the descriptions, but it's still inconvenient. - Unhelpful staff. Had to call for a cab myself, since the staff member I asked told me it's impossible to call cabs at that hour. I called myself and got one right away - Extreme heat in rooms. Sure, they have AC, but it is so incredibly loud, it's impossible to sleep with the AC on.

Peaceful

Posted Sep 23, 2014
Pros: Quirky, beautiful, historic, interesting, quiet.
Location: High line, river walk, easy access to the best of the city.
My favorite part of the city, and this room enhanced the sense of quiet and beauty that I love about this neighborhood. Close to the High Line and the Hudson River.
