Ballroom exceptional!

Posted Dec 16, 2014
Pros: general ambiance
Cons: cleaning!
Location: Greenwich village, 20 minutes from most central attractions
an experience for sure. Not for everyone since this hotel is NOT comfortable but an historical venue (Titanic survivors were sent there after the tragedy, and was a former Captain and ship's crew hotel)

A theme/character experience

Posted Dec 14, 2014
Pros: Great ship-cabin theme and shared bathrooms are attractive and well maintained
Cons: Nothing within the limits of its specific history/theme.
Location: High-Line park end being only 2-blocks away was very convenient for a morning walk before heading out to the airport on the last day.
Personally I appreciate the experience of the Jane which has a very definitive character being that the rooms are essentially the same as cabins (albeit on a now older type of passenger ship). Only downside to (at least) the single rooms for this shared bathroom hotel is that there's no sink in the room -- if that's a deal-breaker for you the so be it, but otherwise a fine choice at a reasonable price-point.

Very nice hotel, the bunk rooms were kind of small for 2 people but not a problem if you are only sleeping there.

Great location for a cheap stay.

Posted Dec 9, 2014
I was really impressed with this hotel for two reasons. First the location and secondly the price. If you are coming for luxury then you will be disappointed. Of you're coming for a cheap place to sleep comfortably with no frills and accessible to see most of Manhattan then this hotel is perfect for you. The hotel is decorated in a bohemian style, it is clean and tidy but not the type of hugh class hotel you come to expect of New York. But it suited us, a couple come to explore New York for 5 days, leaving our children at home with Nanny. We had a bunk room. It is literally that. A bunk bed with about 4ft to walk. It was clean and functional and very warm, but the air conditioning unit worked well. We visited in December so it was about -2 outside but it was so toasty in the room we needed the air con on once we were awake as it got too hot once we started to move about. We used te shared shower and toilet. We found them clean and smart. We didn't have to wait to use them once (although we were up early about 5am most mornings). Staff were helpful and friendly but typical New Yorkers so didn't bend over backwards but would help when asked. If you tipped well they would help with anything you needed, our baggage was delayed arriving so they have is toiletries and extra towels on arrival as we had nothing with us. The hotel is located in west village, near to the trendy, edgy side of Manhattan and walking distance to downtown and Greenwich village. Great subway links too.

Love the Jane!

Posted Dec 9, 2014
If you like funky old world charm with a European flare you'll love the Jane. I think Wes Anderson must of stayed here before he made the Grand Budapest Hotel. Great location, excellent restaurant an overall lovely experience.

Empfehlenswert

Posted Dec 8, 2014
Das Hotel ist sehr zentral, direkt am Highline Park und nur 10 Minuten von der UBahn. Sehr nette Nachbarschaft mit Cafés, Restaurants und vielen kleinen Läden. Das Personal ist sehr hilfsbereit, freundlich und zuvorkommend. Zimmer und Gemeinschaftsbad waren sauber und es wurden Föhne, sowie Duschgel, Shampoo und Spülung zur Verfügung gestellt. - Wir würden, dieses Hotel wieder buchen und es definitiv weiter empfehlen!

Trångt, trevligt och bra service

Posted Dec 2, 2014
Trångt rum, som utlovat. Vinteage i alla avseenden gav ett samlat och genomtänkt intryck. Trevlig personal.

Very tight quarters

Posted Dec 2, 2014
Pros: The character/charm of the building is nice.
Cons: The rooms were quite warm and very very small.
Location: I like the neighbourhood that the hotel is located in. Quite easy to walk to the subway and other areas.
The room was very small. There is not much room to move around at all. Either in the bed or leaving the room is about all that can be done in the space.

No sleep

Posted Nov 29, 2014
Pros: The bar is nice.
Nobody in the Jane bothered to tell the guests that there will be workers working right outside our windows from 7am onwards . I went to sleep late planning to wake up late. But I woke up 7 am with someone shouting literally outside my window, waking me up and intruding my privacy. I hardly got any sleep and it ruined my day. The staff dismissed this thing as works not related to the hotel. It seemed like a lie and even if it wasn't - the hotel is responsible. Whatever the workers were doing lasted at least 2 days.

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.
