The location gives you Chinatown with its shops, restaruants, and massage parlours (some law-abiding, some not-so), interspersed with LIttle Italy. In the summer there are plenty of Italian restaurants with al fresco dining. The streets are lit up nicely and its a great experience. Now for the hotel. It's fairly new and in very good shape. They keep it clean.... More

Thanks to the comments on Trip Adviser we booked this hotel and it did not disappoint. What great value. A 3 star hotel with all the trappings of a 4 star. Breakfast is basic but more than adequate and if you go during the summer there is a lovely terrace to sit out and enjoy it. The location is superb,... More

Booked a room with 2 queen beds back in March 2014. The room was clean and a decent size for a NYC hotel. It was a cousin's weekend and we both felt safe in the hotel and walking around the neighborhood. Chinatown, Little Italy, Lower East Side and Soho are within walking distance and the Grand St subway stop is... More

When moving our daughter to NYC, we were looking for a hotel close to her apartment in Chinatown. The Best Western Bowery Hanbee Hotel was close by. It got good reviews on Tripadvisor, so we tried it. The room was quite spacious and immaculate. Price was very reasonable by NYC standards and included a great breakfast with rooftop outdoor tables.... More

Would I go there again - yes. We needed a clean hotel with breakfast in the relative cheap end. Everything was OK, but not more than OK. - Oh the service was better than OK.

My girlfriend and I stayed six nights at the Best Western Bowery Hanbee on Grand Street in Chinatown and were overall quite happy with our stay. I won the hotel bidding on Hotwire for ~$185CDN all-in, which is a decent hotel rate for New York City. The hotel is located on a very busy street in Chinatown, right on the... More

In my last hotel review, for a Best Western in Oceanside, CA, I chalked Best Western (BW) up as "average." And I'm a Rewards member! But after staying at the Bowery Hanbee, in the heart of Chinatown, I've changed my tune. BWs are capable of being much, much more! I took a red-eye from LA to JFK, leaving Friday night... More

Great location with staff who are great. When we checked in, the room we were given had a strange odor to it and the air conditioner didnt work effectively. When we asked to change rooms late at night, Ryan at the front desk, was very accommodating and moved us to a different room. The day time front desk person, Jeffrey,... More

I enjoyed this hotel. The room was nice, breakfast was pretty good. Internet was reliable. The best thing about it was the location. Very close to Chinatown and Little Italy, short walk to SoHo. Just blocks away there are walk in massage places. I went to one on the corner of Broom and Elizabeth. Excellent. There are tons of cute... More
