My husband and I stayed in this lovely hotel based in an early 19th Century brownstone in the East Village during August 2013. We were booked into the Queen room but on arrival were upgraded to the King room as the hotel wasn't at full occupancy. We were very impressed with the size given all we had been told about...

I stayed at Lafayette House for just under a week. It is a superb place, combining some fabulously eccentric artwork and interesting furniture in a venue that affords you privacy and homeliness. The staff were fantastic to boot. A memorable hotel in a great location. LOVED IT!

We stayed at Lafayette House for one night with three people. We were very happy with both the service and the atmosphere of the place. The hotel is old, and quite dark - but that is part of the charm. The location is fantastic - very close by to some of our favourite places in East Village. We stayed in...

Our experience at Lafayette House will be one of our most memorable stays anywhere. We stayed in room 15 and were stunned by its generous size and exquisite decor. Beautiful antiques and mirrors made us feel like we were staying in a luxurious suite from another time. The bathroom had the deepest tub and was like an oversized jewellery box....

I chose the Lafayette House because of it's location and it's charm that I read about on Tripadvisor. My daughter and I stayed in No. 10 which is on the 3rd floor, has a rear view and windows on 3 walls. This king bedded room has velvet drapes, antique rugs over wood floors, an antique armoire, a chest of drawers,...

When you step into the small entry hall of the Lafayette House, you've crossed the portal of a time machine taking you 100 years back into Old New York. The narrow staircase leads to a series of private rooms, each decorated with turn of the century furniture, many with working (gas) fireplaces. It would be wrong to call it a...

This hotel has loads of charm and character and I love it. It's not the slick and shiny experience that you get at the big high rise hotels (and of those, I love the Standard High Line) but a stay at Lafayette House is a completely different view of NY. It feels like you're staying with some incredibly wealthy long-lost...

The Lafayette House is a true TREASURE conveniently located to shopping and restaurants in the East Village. ATTENTION TO DETAIL is apparent immediately when you enter this well-kept brownstone. The mid-10th Century furniture offers a restful ambiance uncommon in NYC. Our room had a gas fire place adding additional charm. The bathroom tub and sink are likewise vintage, with an...

We booked last minute on a Friday, and the staff quickly gave us the key and prepared the room, the French King Suite. We needed somewhere clean and quiet, and the Lafayette House was both. The original windows had another interior window installed overtop, so the room was quiet (the windows could still be opened). The bathroom was vintage, but...

Nice town house with antique furnished rooms, beds are comfortable. The kitchenette (cutlery, plates etc. are provided) with a well stocked bar is a nice plus. Service is friendly, yet minimal: hello & goodbye; someone on-site from 8 am to 10 pm. The area itself isn't too quiet, mainly due to ongoing construction work. There is no bar nor restaurant...
