It's not cheap of course. Nothing in Manhattan is, but this is budget by comparison with most and it's pretty comfortable. The room was not the matchbox size I'd experienced in Manhattan before and it comes with a reasonable serve yourself breakfast too. There are muffins, bread and croissants, as well as egg (hard boiled in the fridge or hot) and either bacon or sausage, make yourself waffles etc. The breakfast room can get pretty crowded at times.
The staff were helpful and friendly and there is generally a nice, relaxed feel about the place.
The hotel is right in Chinatown and this is a very lively part of the city. A whole string of play areas lies across the street for those with kids and our daughter played there for an average of an hour a day. There are several interesting smaller museums nearby, a Chinese museum, giving a lot of information about the history of Chinese people in the area (including the exclusions laws and prejudices that carried right on well into the twentieth century) as well as the Jewish Tenement Museum and a synagogue museum. All of these are within easy walking distance and they provide a slower paced but no less interesting experience than the sometimes overwhelming large scale institutions like the Met and the Natural History Museum much further uptown.
All in all a good base especially if you want to explore the southern quarter of Manhattan.
