My husband and I stayed at the BW during our trip to NYC last week over Christmastime and absolutely LOVED IT. It was in the perfect location, directly on the subway with a straight shot to Times Square, Bryant Park & Rockefeller. It's located in the middle of China Town and Little Italy, and we had a blast walking and... More

Had a blast visiting NYC at Christmastime and the stall at the Hanbee had a big part in making it so. From getting tickets to giving directions to getting taxi to airport, all were done quickly and courteously. Plus, all the staff seemed to have fun by helping us to have fun. The seating at breakfast was perfect. Tables were... More

Unassuming hotel on the outside on the border of Chinatown and the Bowery. Inside it is clean, comfortable and pleasant with all the wonderful street life of old New York at your doorstep. Rooms are simple, adequate and well maintained. Bathrooms are very practical and user friendly. Free wifi and breakfast in the morning.

Great location for a shopping weekend in New York. The hotel staff were very friendly and knew the area well. The hotel is not "posh" but it is very clean and comfortable. Great wi-fi. Highly recommended.

I was really hoping that by contacting the hotel managment and concierge well in advance, they would look out for my requests in room. Not at all.

We picked this hotel last minute because of price and the location was close to where our daughter lives. We were very happy with the choice. Nice clean accommodations in a quiet area. Very nice, helpful staff. Would stay here again.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
