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

Let me start by complementing stanley the night shift guy so attentive and nice & hugh as well! They provided us with a great customer service experience. We enjoyed our stay in nyc for new years week very much. Rooms were clean, heart of chinatown, near subways, free breakfast and very fair price. We will be back.

Not being a New Yorker or from any high rise city, when you pull up to this hotel it looked like all the rest of the buildings on Grand Street. The hotel its self is narrow but I felt it was still a nice hotel. The room space isn't quite small but not very roomy either. I had 4 people... More

I would stay at this hotel again. It was a good value (quality/price). Beds were comfortable. Everything worked appropriately. Security measures were appropriate for a modern hotel. Breakfast was included in the price. It was adequate. This hotel is at or very near the border of Chinatown and Little Italy. For us, the location was excellent. We were not far... More

I always stay here when I'm visiting New York City. Good food, as it's right in Chinatown. Very close to public transportation. And in a very safe neighborhood. The guest rooms are minimalist. But stylish. Small. But for the price ... often less than $200 a night for a single, it's definitely a bargain.

Whenever we go to NYC, we stay at this hotel. The rooms have wood floors (bamboo), heated floors in the bathroom, very comfortable beds with nice linens, and a friendly helpful staff (they've kept leftovers in their fridge for us). The price is also very accommodating for Manhattan. The only thing that might put some people off is that it's... 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.
