3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed for 4 days. Rooms were clean and not too small. Air conditioning was loud, we had to close it during night to be able to sleep. Traffic noise was present always but I can imagine that it can be a lot worse in other hotels. We requested a room away from the street which was better for the... More

Hotel is in the lower Manhatten area of New York. i liked the access to chinatown and Little italy. I also liked the getting away from the busy part of town (Times Square, Grand Central, etc). Metro pass was easy to use to get anywhere in Manhatten (even up to the other side of Central Park). room was nicely appointed... More

Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teens) totally enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was right in the heart of Chinatown (literally, the Welcome to Chinatown sign was outside our 2nd floor window), and only a short walk to Little Italy. The room was excellent - clean and well-appointed. The beds were super comfy and the bathroom... More

Good Location between China Town and Little Italy. Easy walk to SOHO. Metro is right around the corner. Staff was great. Good breakfast in the morning. Two queen size beds and a very large and clean bath.

We stayed at the Bowery Hanbee for 4 nights. I would stay again. The location was great. The rooms were clean and spacious for NYC. We had a room with 2 queen beds. The desk staff was wonderful! Helping out with directions, handling anything that came up including the prompt fixing the hotel computer. The breakfast was more than ample.

Ok, this is a budget hotel ... get over it. If you want to pay $600 you can stay in Time Square, if not, this is a reasonable option. I would recommend this hotel for tourists, but not for business/guests. The rooms are typical for the city (on the small side), bathrooms are simple but updated and clean (nice tile... More

This hotel was a disappointment at first sight: small bedroom, terrible plastic, with very few healthy options and plastic cuttlery, stuffy air conditioning. I would never ever consider going back there.

So... I've stayed in NYC every couple of months for the last three years or so on business - usually for 2 weeks at a time, and I have sampled most of the 'reasonably priced' hotels in the city in that time. These are mostly 3+ star brand hotels. First, the good stuff.... The room was a very good size... More

Very comfortable stay. Clean rooms. Although quite expensive (like everything in New York). Not a warm welcome by staff, definitly something the hotel can do better. Storing luggage before/after check-in not free. Located near China town and close to subway. Good location for citytrip. Standard breakfast.
