The Jane is a boutique hotel located in the Meatpacking District, one of New York's trendiest neighborhoods. Built to house sailors oin 1906, the rooms reflect that purpose. They are tiny! The location is excellenty, though, around teh corner from restaurants and clubs as well as the High Line. The subway is only a few blocks away, making this hotel's location as well as its ambience and price a great find.

OUR HOTEL: The Jane – good value in a nice building but small rooms and hidden charges

We stayed at the hotel Jane, one of the cheapest hotels in Manhattan. The location is perfect, in the small scale Chelsea, between Midtown and Lower Manhattan, a couple of blocks from Greenwich Village. Only a busy highway separates the hotel from Hudson River.

The hotel is located in a nice historic redbrick building at Jane Street, one of few paving-stone in New York. It is a quiet street with townhouses and a lot of trees. The lobby of The Jane is a bit worn, but really elegant for the price with a chandelier and wooden panels, the staff were red suits, there is even an elevator guy and there is a nice French café (that is a bit expensive since you only get 2 baguettes,a juice and one cup of coffee for 9 dollars) and a nightclub that we never visited.

The only disadvantage, a really big one, is that the room is so small that you can touch both walls at the some time! And we had to share a bunk bed, no king size beds here. So there was really a big contrast between our room and the hotel’s public spaces. But the small rooms had air condition (poor but still), 2 flatscreen TVs (one for each bed), a clock radio, and a phone.There was no view at all from the window since it was located at an opening inside the building. But it is not only bad to don’t have views of the street, the room was really quiet. The restrooms were shared, there were only 4 showers per floor, but the staff is working really hard to keep them clean and there are views of Hudson River, Jersey City’s skyline and the Statue of Liberty (in the distance but still). The toilets were in European style, really good compared to the horrible public toilets you see in many places in America. At one occasion we visited the public toilets of Waldorf Astoria, and they were really bad compared to the Jane. There are also bigger rooms with private bathrooms available, but in that case you have to pay about the double amount, and then you have to compare it to better hotels.

The most annoying thing about our stay is that the hotel very unclear about that tax and deposit fee is not included in the price, and they didn’t even tell us about that, so about 200 dollars extra was charged from our credit card! We couldn’t figure out what the extra fee was.The first day in NY was partly spoiled since we had to go back to the hotel, go to the bank and talk to the hotel. So 3 different taxes plus a really huge deposit (I think it was 200 dollars!!) was charged, making the amount we should pay almost twice as big as there was info about at our printed booking request. A big WARNING about that, if you don’t have enough money on the account you can’t pay your visit, and it really feels like they try to fool people! Except for that, I want to say that they were really friendly and helpful during our stay.

We had to cancel the last 2 nights, because we wanted to escape from the hurricane Irene, and that was no problem. We didn’t want to be trapped in a super small room in a building right next to Hudson River, in case of flooding and power failure. If you can stand staying in a small room without bathroom, the hotel is really good value considering the location, staff and condition, just keep in mind all hidden extra charges!
