We stayed at this hotel last week. The room cost for the whole stay was "authorized" on my credit card at check in which is fair enough. When checking out, the same sum was "authorized" once more from the account, hence twice the cost was held by the hotel and made inaccessible for me. Two days after check out, the... More

If your planning a visit to NYC and looking for a hotel that is away from uptown Manhattan, this is a great Hotel to stay in, very clean large rooms, buffet style breakfast, and very friendly staff. It is in a great location, China Town and Little Italy on you door step, subway just a few blocks away,

I had the pleasure of staying at Best Western Bowery Hanbee Hotel for four nights while I was on a business trip. The hotel is in Chinatown and very close to little Italy. It is a pretty good location, located within walking distance of a subway station and 20 minutes (and around 20 dollars taxi ride) away from Midtown. The... More

This hotel was good value for money, located a block from the subway and around 25mins in total from midtown. It is close to the East Village and within walking distance of the Brooklyn Bridge and the financial district. The room was an okay size, although a second chair would have been nice. The bed was comfortable and a fair... More

We brought a group of 18 students to New York, and arranged to stay here. The rooms were nice, and spacious. The bathroom floors were heated, and the shower was huge, and had a very strong stream of hot water. Everyone raved about how much they enjoyed the showers. The location worked well for us.

We really appreciate you bringing your group to stay with us while you were in NYC. Your group was very well behaved and great to work with.

Lovely staff & service (frontdesk, cleaners, breakfast lady), the staff was very accomodating during our stay! We loved everything about the hotel. Great location in Chinatown, delicous breakfast buffet, bathroom floorheating, organic complimentary toiletries & good price for nyc. We would def stay again whenever they have a promotion!

This hotel is a great budget option in Chinatown on the border of Little Italy. Location is excellent, just one block to the closest subway station, and there are other stations within walking distance. We travelled from the hotel to Newark Airport using the subway and the train from Penn Station and then the air train. Everything went very smoothly.... More

We appreciate you staying with us and sharing your feedback. We do look forward to the opening of our outdoor patio seating in the Spring. It really adds to the breakfast experience.

The accommodations are fine for the price. Location is great for LIttle Italy and China Town Districts. Don't use Go Airlink NYC for your transportation to and from the airports. They were and hour late in picking us up. Not reliable at all. They take you money up front and you are at their mercy.
