Can only recommend this hotel. Great location and great friendly serviceminded staff. I had a few packages sent to the hotel and they were ready for me when I came. Only this is the breakfast - that's not very good. However this is how it is. The training facilities are also VERY poor

Great hotel location as well as price. Very central to get around New York City from the subway or in an uber. Room was immaculately clean and they offered a very good breakfast offering. I would definitely stay here again.

The room was very nice, relatively quiet, & comfortable. The lobby was small but functional & the staff was very friendly. The only negative (which was a BIG one) was that the Wi-Fi was absolutely terrible. Beware business travelers.

Enjoyed staying at the Bowery. Right in china town but easy walk to other areas. Bathroom can get very cold, there is no fridge and we had bought some cheese just left it on the bathroom window sill as it was as cold as a fridge. Breakfast is okay plentiful and included in our stay.

My bf and I stayed here during the blizzard. Great experience at the Best Western Bowery. The staff was super helpful and friendly. Breakfast is included and is plentiful... make sure to get up early for it! The room was big and very clean. There's a treadmill and an elliptical on the roof. Good location- 2 blocks from ferarra's and... More

If you are looking for a good hotel in the not usual tourist areas, but still well-located you should consider this one. It is in the Chinatown/Little Italy in walking distance to Lower Manhattan (if you like to walk) but also with public transport near by. The rooms aren't huge but are big enough. We were in 810, there is... More

Me and my mate really enjoyed our stay there this long weekend. The room was clean with extra towels. Front desk was very helpful with any questions we ask and polite. It was quiet, which we enjoyed. Location was close to restaurants and walking distant. Delivery service available and quick. We will be back again.

We stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel has laminate floors that look like wood. I wish all hotels in the USA got rid of their carpets like they have in Europe. I was very glad to see this hotel has done that. The room was very clean. They had a free breakfast that filled us up before we left... More

The hotel is only a block from 2 tourist locations; Chinatown & Little Italy. The folks at the hotel were like greeting old friends that went far beyond the norm for caring and meeting our every request. The rooms (2) were spotless and absolutely the cleanest hotel room I have ever seen.

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.
