“Has its pros and cons”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

The four of us, three adults and 1 teen stayed here for five nights. The location is great if you like Chinatown. The African Burial Ground, Brooklyn Bridge, and Little Italy are quite close. I picked this hotel because of the trip advisor reviews and my love for Chinese food. I understand that hotel accommodations are expensive in a Manhattan, but for what I was paying for each night, I didn't expect these oversights. The curtains are sheer, bring an eye mask if you're sensitive to light because the street lamps are right outside. The mattress isn't covered with anything other than a single sheer bed sheet, kinda gross at a hotel. They should get mattress covers. Wifi on the third floor was very weak and only worked in a certain part of the room. The view from the third floor was disappointing and not worth the extra money each night. In fact, people in the park below had a good view of us in our room! Breakfast is good, water pressure is fine, the neighborhood is safe, and staff is professional.

We chose this hotel mainly to be away from the main tourist areas but still be in an interesting location. It certainly didn't disappoint. Chinatown, Little Italy and the Financial District are all within easy walking distance and the park where the hotel is situated is extremely quiet and safe at night. During the day the park is a meeting place for the local Chinese community where they practice chi-gong, make music and play board games.
The hotel itself is very clean, the rooms bigger than expected and the staff very helpful and friendly. Nor will it bust your budget!
For a first-time New York visitor, it is maybe a bit out of the way but for someone wanting to get to know the city a bit better, this place is perfect.

Room Tip: Pay just a little bit more for a room with a park view. From the 10th floor it's stunning!

A fantastic property for the price within walking distance from chinatown, little italy and ground zero. Not only was the price cheaper than most of the major chains, the rooms were much cleaner and just as comfortable.

Ahh I'm so glad I chose to stay at this hotel. First time in nyc, and it was a girls trip! We were kinda nervous since we didn't know what to expect, but this hotel was in the perfect location. Felt safe and the rooms/bathrooms were so nice and clean. Breakfast spot was definitely a plus. Front desk hospitality was flawless. Whenever i go back to nyc I'm pretty sure this is going to be my go to hotel

The hotel is on a small street in Chinatown. Two doors down is a parking garage that is convenient but not included. The hotel and room were very clean. The room held two queen beds so it is not too tiny but not spacious either. The bathroom was very clean and tile was clean which is important. (I hate icky tile) They give you vouchers for free breakfast 2 doors away. They call it "continental" but it was quite a menu: eggs/bacon/toast or a variety of pancakes, or waffles. I would definitely return.

We were in the mood for a Saturday & Sunday getaway to NYC to see the sites and our research led us to the Hotel Mulberry. All of the good reviews that they receive are richly deserved. First they're in a great location in the Chinatown & Little Italy area. Very interesting area with great food. Second the staff was extremely polite with great service. We arrived early and they checked our bags for us and offered us the use of the "employees only" restroom. Last, the room was very clean with a great view of Columbus Park and the Freedom Tower. We will definitely be back again.

I used to live in NYC, not too far from the Hotel Mulberry so I've got an attachment to Chinatown and the Lower East Side. But that's not what I chose Hotel Mulberry; I chose it based on room qualities and price. NYC is so full of fleabags on one end and $1,000 a night swank hotels on the other it's really hard to find something in the middle. But that's what Hotel Mulberry does and does well. The Canal Street Subway station is close and you're only 10-15 minutes by cab to most places you'll want to go in NYC so take a former local's advice and stay at the Hotel Mulberry.
