Went on a mini trip with my friends,(4 girls) to NYC, we made a mistake by choosing this (run down) motel online. Ok let's begin with the problems. The motel got no elevator, had to drag our luggages up 3 flights of stairs, that wasn't the worst parts, opened the door to the room and it smelt like bugs sprays... More

After checking out, I was told I could leave my luggage at a place across the front-desk because "it would be watched" and "people do it". I came back in the evening and one suitcase was missing. Working clothes and international gifts to friends I was visiting were gone. Cops showed up(and were very nice), but, even with cameras all... More

It was the worst hotel Ive ever been to. The smell was awful the room was dirty and the sheets had stains on them. The room was the size of the shoe box and Im talking baby shoes. No elevator. I had to walk all the way to fifth flor. The stairs were steep and narrow

The worst hotel I've ever stayed in, and I'm 56. Tons of bedbugs, I have photos of them and of my bites and the hotel didn't care. At $190 per night! And then someone tried to break into our room at 4 am. We are still treating my suitcase - if they infest your home, you are screwed. STAY AWAY.

Lets just say that it would have been more comfortable to stay in the airport terminal. The dirtiest place can exist in NYC and other civilized cities. This is that kind of place where people stay for half an hour or less.

In fiction and fantasy, no place as ghastly has ever been imagined. I would rather spend a night in Hades than here. I walked to the hotel from Midtown and as I approached my destination my heart sank as just blocks away I passed the Bowery mission with vagrants and psychopaths muttering to themselves on the street. When I arrived... More

Terrible experience all together and oh wow if you're use to sleeping with the roaches youll fit right in, filthy rooms all came with live and deceased roach carcasses, but as a seasoned travel I shouldnt havent expected much from chinatown so I guess it's my fault. But dont waste your money here. Spend a couple more dollars and get... 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.
