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.

We stayed in this well located hotel in Chinatown at the edge of Little Italy--perfect in terms of price, quality, and access to transportation, great restaurants and events. The staff were friendly, professional, and very helpful, and our corner room was spacious and very clean and comfortable. Even the breakfast was good!

I stayed at this hotel last June (2013) while in NYC for work for 4 nights. The location was great to take the metro or just walk around. With Little Italy just a block away and Soho within walking distance. The staff was very helpful with things we needed like adding a day to our stay as well as getting... More

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
