First, this is not a Hotel is a Motel. They do not use mattress, they only use the box spring with a blanket over it. It's like sleeping on a table with sheets. I have no problems with noise, but there is a train station right in front of the hotel. and works 24 hours. The heating does not work.... More

I was a bit cautious about quality of the beds in this hotel after reading other reviews but found the beds adequate and definitely not too hard as indicated. This hotel caters mostly for the Chinese community. The rooms were clean and the lady tidying up the rooms, Hau, was not only very efficient but also honest as she found... More

If you´re only looking for a place to crash and don´t plan on staying in your room too much then this is a superb choice. Dead cheap, dead clean and fairly central. Close proximity to metro station, safe area, tv, free coffee. Small bedroom but big bathroom. Room was cleaned daily and sheets changed every other day. Brilliant find.

if you take this hotel as a building with staff, i guess it is ok...good sized rooms, clean bathrooms and fairly friendly staff. however, the location is extremely bad. it is located right opposite the approach to the bridge, which is a steel structure, and the metro trains rattle across every 2 minutes or so. i asked for a room...

However the Mayor Hotel still benefits from the renovation that ABV did a few years back. The rooms are clean, the bathrooms fixtures are relatively new, and all the rooms are equipped with cable and flat screen TV's. The location is in the lower East Side in the heart of Chinatown. Proximity to Little Italy is very convenient. The neighborhood... More

Our flight landed in New York in the morning, several hours before checkin. The staff was helpful in getting our room ready quickly. The room was large by New York standards and everything was in good condition. Chinatown is very working class and a bit dirty, but we enjoyed our stay there. There were plenty of place to get food... More

I stayed here only for one night and my friend booked the room. The room is clean and the bed is comfortable. Not that noisy as other reviewers said. At least I had a good sleep.

Hotel location is not the best in my experience. Tough to grab a cab and I wouldn't feel comfortable walking the neighborhood at night. The hotel is cheap for NYC but you get what you pay for. The bed felt like I was sleeping on a box spring with no mattress. Hotel was small and very noisy. I heard a... More

OK, first of all have to say that the journey to the hotel was not too bad from the airport - took the subway and yes the location is approx 15 mins walk from at least two stations (Brooklyn Bridge & Canal St – their main website mentions East Broadway, however did not find it – but just confirmed on...

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.
