4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Nice new no-frills hotel, very clean and comfortable, everything worked in the double room, which was spacious enough for two people (not a couple) sharing. Only trivial gripe may be that the lift (elevator) is a bit slow which can be slightly frustrating if in a hurry -- but not a deal-breaker by any means. Location is convenient to Chinatown,... More

I was very impressed by the Be Hotel. I always stay in boutique hotels, so I expect very small rooms. This was a very nice sized room! Very clean, modern, comfortable, and quiet. The staff was very pleasant - from front desk to housekeeping. Very close to the subway. At first I wasn't so sure about the proximity to other... More

Does what it says on the tin. No frills but very clean and comfortable. Staff very helpful and room had great view of Freedom Tower. Only drawback was location which was not central enough for us. Also, as there was no bar, tried to find liquor store but couldn't find one for love nor money...but not something that would put... More

The hotel is located in Chinatown and near Little Italy so loads of choice for restaurants. All the of the staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms are larger than most hotel rooms in NY and the bed was very comfortable. I would definitely recommend the Be Hotel.

It's was better then I expected the customer service great, the room was great, location great .. The best hotel I have every stay in ny. The only thing is I wish they had a mini refrigerator in the rooms but I didn't mind going down to get ice. Overall a great experience will highly recommend this hotel.

Great location (in Chinatown and near Little Italy), spacious room and lovely views. I stayed at the Be Hotel for a couple days and there was only one negative thing I have to note: Housekeeping did not do a great job in cleaning our room. Towels were not replaced, new ice bag was not provided, and garbage was not fully... More

Very good hotel + reasonable prices right at the edge of Chinatown. My first time in NYC so loved the location - not too touristy, lots to do and see, Brooklyn bridge nearby which is awesome. Only real downside, just 1 lift which took a while as I was on 6th floor. Would defo recommend.

Now that our daughter lives in NYC, the Be Hotel will definitely become our "go to" hotel for visits. Our room was reasonably priced, very comfortable and a good size for NYC. Modern bathroom, drawers and closet for storage, nice flat screen TV, and a super-comfy bed. We were on the 5th floor and heard no street noise. The staff... More

As someone who stays in NYC just about every week for business, it's always tricky finding a clean, convenient, quiet hotel downtown. Be Hotel was a gem. The front desk staff was kind and friendly, the room was large, comfortable, and modern. I'm actually hesitant to post this review as I want to keep it a secret!
