“What a tasteful,clean & well staffed hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

My sister & I stayed a saturday Night here & enjoyed courteous service and quite clean & well appointed rooms. Cons are that we could clearly hear the toilet flushing in the room next door and the location is a bit out of the way. However... It was neat to spend some time in Chinatown / little Italy. And subway is not far.

When you first visit New York most people tend to find something around Time Square or Central Park and we are normally look to do this.

This time we had a change and we are glad that we did. The Hotel Mulberry is in Chinatown just around the corner from Little Italy. It is therefore off the main tourist trap and in a much quieter area of the City especially in the evenings. There is a subway station no more than 3 minutes away and you are in the tourist trap areas in no more than 10 minutes.

The building covers thirteen floors but the building is narrow so there are only a few rooms on each floor. By New York standards the rooms are quite spacious and clean with a really comfortable bed. The bathroom was also clean and of a good size. The room had a TV, fridge, coffee, free wifi and a safe. It also had a wonderful view of the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and looked to be enjoying their work and looking after their guests.

An unusual aspect for a centre city hotel was that a complimentary breakfast is offered at "Mamas" a nearby restaurant. (4 doors down). I have to say that it was not the greatest breakfast I have been offered and it was of the few places in the USA that you are offered orange juice or coffee not both with no refills and the staff were not the best. However, it was sufficient to start the day with.

I am however, reviewing the hotel only and cannot fault it and have stayed in a lot worse in New York at a higher rate.

My family and I stayed at this hotel at the beginning of our 3 week touring holiday of America. The hotel was ideally located just by Canal Street Subway. Every morning from our 5th Floor room we could see the locals performing their morning exercises and we would copy them from our bedroom! The rooms were clean and we felt safe walking around the neighbourhood - it was not until our last day that we realised that the large building opposite the hotel was in fact a federal prison! Every morning we went to Mama's a couple of doors down from the hotel and had a simple but well received breakfast. The kids loved the fact they had chips for breakfast with their omelettes. The hotel was near plenty of great chinese restaurants and very close to Little Itay with good italian restaurants. It was a great start to the holiday.

Lovely, clean, modern hotel in a great neighbourhood. The staff are wonderful - always friendly and cheerful, and nothing is too much trouble. Our room was a fair size by New York standards, and we could see both Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges from the window. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and there was plenty of hot water. Complimentary tea and coffee are available in the lobby from morning till midnight, and there's free WiFi. Breakfast was included in our room rate, they gave us a voucher for a cafe four doors down the street. That's the only thing I would change about my stay, as the cafe was not great (some of the staff were surly, and breakfast was one small hot dish plus EITHER a hot drink OR juice; but - just to be clear - my problem was with the cafe, NOT with the hotel).

I loved the area - at the edge of Chinatown where it meets Little Italy. We used the subways around the corner on Canal Street (the 6, N, Q and R, which are all useful lines for moving around the city). The neighbourhood is pretty quiet in the evenings - there are more people about during the day, but it's not overcrowded. The shops and restaurants all seemed to be cheap around there. I'm a fairly frequent visitor to Manhattan, and prefer not to stay near Times Square, as I find it too crowded, noisy and overpriced. Don't be put off by thinking this place is away from midtown - wherever you stay in the city, you're going to be using the subway anyway, and it's only a handful of stops. Plus it's really convenient for exploring places like Soho, the East Village, Greenwich Village etc. not to mention Chinatown and Little Italy.

I really recommend this hotel - it's good value by New York standards, and is one of the very best I've come across.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of August. We loved it. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our room on 10th floor overlooking the park was immaculately clean and comfortable with lots of little extras. Having a fridge and a safe was a definite bonus, as was getting fresh towels every day. We loved having breakfast at Mama's. It was always a good start to the day and service was very effiicient. I became very fond of the banana pancakes! We thought it was the perfect base to explore downtown and enjoyed wandering the streets of Chinatown and Little Italy. Even at night it felt very safe. We also walked to financial district, Battery Park and East River Seaport on several occasions. We even walked to Greenwich Village and the Highline - but we particularly enjoy walking! Subway on Canal Street was easy to find for a trip uptown. We returned to the hotel for a final night after a few nights away and the staff kept one of our cases until our return. We got a balcony room for our last night - unfortunately it rained - although we still sat outside for a while enjoying the view. We were very impressed with Hotel Mulberry and will definitely stay again when we return to New York. We will recommend it to friends and family too.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor and a park view

We stayed for 7 nights in this hotel and loved it very much.
We had a room at the back of the hotel. It was very quite. The rooms were very clean, with fresh towels every day. The staff was very friendly and helpfull.
The location is also great for visiting downtown, uptown and Brooklyn. Subway station Canal street is in close range.
We didn't take breakfast in the hotel, but went to Fulton Market, where they serve full range breakfast and nice coffee (try the dark roasted one)

It started with the pleasant folks at the front desk, the complimentary fruit in the room, continued with the helpful map of the local area, the right-on recommendations for nearby eateries, the filling and fine breakfast at Mama Eatery, the comfy bed, the spotless bathroom and finished with a lovely view of the lower Manhattan skyline at night from our terrace. I traveled with my 12 year old daughter and we greatly enjoyed the room and the neighborhood and felt safe coming and going from the Hotel. We enjoyed Columbus Park and the cultural identity of the area (Chinatown). We used the subway stops (about 3-4 blocks away) and walked to various sites (WTC, Battery Park, South Street Seaport) without difficulty. It was a pleasure to stay here and we will come back and we recommend the Hotel Mulberry to others. :)

Room Tip: We loved our terrace that overlooked Columbus Park. We could see the rising World Trade Center buil...
