The hotel is located near multiple subway lines that it made it easy to travel uptown and downtown, After walking around the city, we seemed to always come back to Chinatown or Little Italy to grab dinner and dessert. The hotel is clean and most of the front desk were helpful and friendly. I would rate it a 5 star,... More

Lovely hotel and facilities. Breakfast was stunning and lots to choose from. 3 close subway stops make access easy but be advised that the Grand stop closes earlier than Canal street so we had a hike after midnight on very quiet and dark streets back to the hotel. Not bad - just the Grand station and Bowery stations are right... More

We stayed in this hotel in the middle of February when it was frienzingly cold. We were glad the the hotel was a good and warm hide out. The standard room was spacious, equiped with a coffee and thea machine. The bed was really comfortable, wifi was fast enough to stream music or movies. The breakfast was simple, but sufficient....

Our first trip to NYC over the busy Valentines weekend. The hotel was clean, comfortable and warm. It's in a great location and really easy to get up and down town as well as over to Brooklyn which we did a couple of times. Nice touch that there is breakfast although we just grabbed coffee as there are so many... More

Since December 2009 I booked several stays at this hotel in Manhattan,a choice I never regretted;first of all is located in the characteristic neighbourhood of Chinatown which is a plus and is served by the metro located a couple of blocks away.The room is clean and spacious which is a plus in New York as well and the bathroom has...

In the heart of Chinatown. The entrance is actually on Grand Street. For me, this was a great hotel to be in, because of it's proximity to my favorite Chinese restaurants and a three block walk to my newly discovered Italian Coffee and pastry shop. "Leave the gun, take the Cannoli's". The hotel is clean and maintain, however, the furniture,... More

We love staying here when we work in Manhattan. I work in the theater district all the time, and we always stay in Chinatown. It is a great hotel and the staff is wonderful....also the location is perfect.

We have stayed at the Best Western Bowery Hanbee in China town twice for five days each time. We booked it originally because it was a Best Western and that organization has high standards. We previously have stayed in some pretty horrible places in the City and paid too much. The Bowery Hanbee is conveniently located a block from the... More

Location, good. Staff, didn't need to talk them except when checking in and out, therefore good. Rooms, spacey and clean with NYC-standards. The hotel had a breakfast buffet, but we actually didn't even look at it. Because let's face it, you're in New York City! We asked for a room on a higher floor to avoid street noise and we... More

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.
