Noisy and disappointing
Very disappointing - unless you can guarantee a room at the back of the hotel, building work opposite means a 6am wake-up. This work will likely continue for years still, and the air-con unit in the window essentially means that there is no noise insulation at all. Bed sheets did not look super clean and there is indeed a general smell of damp around the place.

Good 'no frills' hotel in excellent location
The hotel is in an excellent location just minutes from the 9/11 memorial and museum. The World Trade Centre observation deck is similarly close. It is also only a 10/15 minute walk to Battery Park where the ferries depart to Staten Island, Liberty Island and Ellis Island. There are three subway stations very close to the hotel so getting around is easy. The hotel itself is 'no frills' (no bar or lounge area and a small reception) but the room was a reasonable size and had a balcony facing into a courtyard. It was adequately appointed with a small kitchenette. As our room faced the courtyard it was fairly quiet apart from noisy air-conditioning units, but it wasn't so loud to be disturbing at night. Friends staying in a room facing the road found it very noisy due to the building works opposite which started early so I would choose a courtyard facing room if staying again. The bathroom was well appointed (no bath just a shower) but the water temperature in the shower fluctuated a lot and was either too hot or too cold. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall, I would describe the hotel as good and the location as excellent.

Not a good experience!!!
This was very disappointing as the hotel was in full renovation. The website misled us by not informing us that the floors were bare concrete without any flooring or capeting. No facilities. Full construction in the building in front of us in full view - not pleasant. Constant digging and noise which was totally unacceptable. We should have been informed in advance, How can you charge full price for something that is only half finished. Total rip off! Need a rebate or compensation of some sort. Otherwise will make sure I will never stay at a Riff hotel anywhere!

It was a unique budget style hotel with it's 80's theme. A second pair of slippers were an extra cost so we shared the first pair. Room 26 had complimentary tea/coffee in the mornings. To use the hob you need to sign a cooking waver so we used the microwave for heating up food or hot water for our tea!

Simple, but quirky hotel in fab location
We had a great time in New York, the location of the hotel was fabulous, right next to the world trade memorial centre, and pier for Statue of Liberty. Lots of subway stops nearby too. It seems like the hotel itself has only very recently been opened. Very funky interior and design. Staff, although friendly, seemed quite unsure about many things. There is a charge of $5 per bag to leave behind if you had a late departure!! This seems an awful lot! It took ages to check out and recieve bags back. A few minor teething problems occurred which I'm sure will iron themselves out as time evolves and the staff get used to it all
