Great Service!
The service at the Freehand is incredible!! The rooftop bar is less than desirable, and it feels like you are being transported to an underground illegal rave club while going there. Not much on the rooftop menu.

Great location and GOOD value.
Amazing little hotel in a fantastic location. The lobby and staff are amazing we even check in early as we came in on a very early flight. Hotel restaurant is great too! Totally cool vibe. Rooms are tiny but hey, that’s NY.

Nice place! Great stay!
Pros: Great stay, friendly staff. Nice gym. Great location. Cons: A bit noisy in terms of traffic - a lot of honking even in the middle of th night, but it is NYC. Had to ask for coffee/tea/hot watee machine and they were all out the first day we stayed but got it the subsequent nights. Very busy on the weekends.

A nice visit in January
The hotel was great overall with excellent amenities and you can't beat the location. Also, the bars were fun and had a good vibe plus the staff were very friendly. The only negatives were that the room was on the smaller side and at times there was water pressure issues and pipe sounds. I’d stay at the Freehand again in the future.

Expect Manhattan style.
Comfortable bed and blanket, no seating area. Very cramped room. Tiny bathroom with no proper vent.Good location for walking around the area. I loved the indoor slippers provided by the hotel.

Freehand NYC is great, book now!
Location is great. Close to subway lines and walking distance to major landmarks. Service was excellent! Friendly and helpful staff 24/7. The only drawback is that it can get noisy outside at night, but that can be expected in Manhattan. Highly recommended!

Loved everything except the size of the bathroom
Good points 1) Hotel was nice, restaurants and coffee shops 2) a few minutes walk to Flatiron building 3) great staff 4) very clean Not good points Very tiny bathroom, tiny sink, our room was for three people, we kept splashing the shelf above the sink and water all over the floor, and no ventilation in the bathroom, now imagine that!
