“Small price for small room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Maybe the cheapest place in Manhattan today, for the same price than a YMCA, you have your private room with private bath (not just a shared shower).
The staff is friendly and try to help you if you need assistance.
For sure the bed is hard, very hard you feel sleeping on a wood board, but you sleep well if you love it, the temperature is good sometimes too hot, but don't open the double window you will hear the train and the cars in front of the hotel, so don't forget your ear plug if you are used to sleep in the absolute silence.
If you are looking for a place to sleep in a large bed, for a very low price, just chose this hotel 5 minute walk from the subway station East Broadway (line F).

We found this hotel friendly and welcoming and the rates were really well priced. The room was tiny, could only just get my case around the bed but the bathroom was a good size. The bed was awful!!! I also found breakfast (which was included) very disappointing, there were only choices of a ham and egg roll or a sweet bun. I would stay here again as long as beds were upgrades.

Nice hotel located on china town, not far from everything else in the city, small room barely got the queen bed with a little walking room around it. Had a nice flat screen Tv though. Had a decent selection of channels. Bed was hard as a rock! Bed consisted of a bed board and a 1 to 2 in pad. And small skinny pillows. My back was killing me all night and still is today.

I have read the reviews here.....Yes, it is in chinatown (although I felt safer there than in many NYC areas), we had no problem finding snacks/drinks and most of the 'locals' there were very nice. The staff at mayor hotel were very friendly and stored our luggage for us until we could check in (and after we checked out). They also have a driver service that was cheaper than cabs and called him for us! We had two pretty small twin beds that weren't super comfy, but did the job. The breakfast was also decent and included in the price. Wifi worked great.....the bridge traffic was noisy, but after a day of sight-seeing and taking a tylenol pm, i didn't even notice (and I'm a pretty light sleeper). This was our first trip to NYC so we were VERY nervous about where we stayed, and also on a budget. I did NOT notice any mold or anything gross in the hotel. Our room was clean, I didnt notice any rips/tears in curtains or sheets or anything. ....The rooms were small, I could not imagine spending the day there.....so, if you are planning on just hanging out at the hotel, this probably isn't the place for you. But if you leave early and return to hotel to shower/sleep, this is a good deal. Took us 3-5 minute walk to get to subway from front door of hotel. Over-all, for the price and location coupled with the fact that we really didn't spend much time there, we would stay again and feel this was a good value and experience for the money.

Room Tip: Didn't stay in a room with one bed, maybe the twin rooms are nicer? Also, ask clerk about lugga...

Moldy shower, hair everywhere in bathroom, they photo copy your credit card and ID and keep the info for 5 years (is that legal?), hard, uncomfortable beds, dirty under desk and nightstand, very basic cable- maybe 10 channels and you don't control your own heat/cooling. Lastly, don't plan on sleeping.... Train overhead runs all night.

The service was great- but the hotel is across the street from a very loud train, the rooms are tiny, the bed is hard, the sheets are stained and torn, the wallpaper in the room was torn and there was a big hole in the wall, and the price is way too much for the complete lack of quality. The breakfast is coffee with powdered creamer and cold Chinese pastries.
