Love the location in chinatown and the staff were excellent, but I was not on board with the rooms. My first room was moldy (smelling) and when I saw harmless but creepy silverfish in the bathroom, I asked for a change of rooms. Upon returning that evening, I checked into a room that didn't have the moldy smell, but it... More

Don't be fooled by the headline. It is the "Best Western Hotel" run by Chinese. Jeffrey, same name as me, at the reception desk, is clear cut, not too cold not too warm. Location is the best to me, and to you also if you don't mind the Hong Kong or south China living atmosphere down in the surrounding streets.... More

The Best Western Bowery Hanbee was awesome - highly recommend. The room was modern and updated, and felt like a 1 bedroom apartment. The bed was very comfortable. The internet access was wonderful. The windows in the bedroom kept out the street noise very well. The hotel is located directly above a Chase bank so we felt very safe. The... More

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

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.
