Ah, New York. There’s really no place like it. It’s one of the only cities in the world where you can pay hundreds of dollars for a hotel room smaller than your office cubicle.
We’re hardly exaggerating, and to prove it, we’ve rounded up our photos of some of the smallest hotel rooms we’ve ever seen.
(It’s worth noting that good things can come in small packages, and if the price is right, some of these exceptionally teensy spaces can actually be good values.)
The Jane Hotel
First up, The Jane Hotel. With shared bathrooms and hilariously small (though cleverly designed) rooms, this newly renovated West Village landmark offers quirky accommodations for hipsters on a tight budget — most rooms are $99 a night.
Hotel 41 At Times Square
Its standard rooms, even its “Superior” Rooms, are some of the smallest hotel rooms anywhere in New York — that’s really small. But, if the room is just for sleeping, Hotel 41 has a superb location in the heart of Times Square on 41st Street (hence its name), surrounded by the flashing marquees and every major subway line.
Part hotel, part hostel (with shared bathrooms), the Pod Hotel is pretty basic for business-focused Midtown East. But it’s still not the cheapest hotel. Rooms — those with their own bathroom — also have free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and iHome iPod docks. But they’re tiny — maybe the smallest in New York. For the price, opt for the Holiday Inn Sixth Avenue in far-hipper Chelsea.
