“A disapointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

The hotel is well located in Chinatown but that was all there is nice to say about it.
The interior looks cheap, my room was small, the furnitures were degraded, I even found a stain of iron on the desk...
There were lamp missing with the wires bursting out of the wall. The A/C was not controlled from the room and the TV was barely displaying 6 channels...
The bathroom was cleaned everyday but it would have been great if the lady didn't let some of her hair on the floor or in the bathtub...
The walls were so thin that I could hear my neighbors snorting in their sleep.

But the real joke was the complimentary breakfast. "Served" in a small room in the basement, with a single 4 chairs table next to the washing machines (functioning!). You have the choice between helping yourself with some coffee or tea and some industrial sausage flavored breads...

For the price I paid for a week, I should have chosen to not take breakfast included in my reservation.
Did I mention that the so called WiFi was functioning only 10 minutes per connection?

We stayed here three nights and overall it was ok. rooms are tiny and the location was quite loud (manhattan bridge just across the street). we skipped the breakfast always since it wasn't very good. the upsight: you get clean rooms, a friendly stuff, in a quite central location for a moderate price.

Staff is friendly and helpful, rooms were clean but we moved the bed against the wall to make more room and it needed some cleaning under the bed.
It is located walking distance from some good restaurants in Chinatown and Little Italy and you can also walk to Soho if you are up to a 15 min walk.
Subway station is 5 min walk away.
If you are not going to spend much time in your room and don't mind small rooms then it's perfect and good value for money in NCY.

Room Tip: Take the bigger room, the small room have very limited space, only fit a bed and one sidetable.

This hotel is the worst I have ever stayed at. The beds are basically box springs and ou are probably better off sleeping on the floor... The bathrooms have mold and it is like that in all the rooms, I tried to switch and it was a waste of time... Management is not understandable about the horrible rooms they have when we wanted to cancel our stay... We were basically better off sleeping in the car... Stay across the street at Hotel 91.. Much better rooms, mattress, cleanliness, and service!!!!

I´m gonna be mean and start with negative. Please don´t book this hotel if you are looking for a place with breakfast. Their so called breakfast consists of aged and suspiciously tasting buns, served in a smelly laundry room in the basement!!! BUT, otherwise I was happy with our stay here. Fantastic location with easy access to Midtown Manhattan via direct subway line. Incredibly kind and helpful staff. Small but clean rooms. I would definitely recommend this place to all young couples travelling on budget.

Room Tip: Well, there is a Manhattan Bridge just across the street, so light sleepers be aware of noise!!! I p...
