“Save yourself!! Do not stay here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Hotel azure is the most disgusting hotel you could possibly find to stay in. Me and my husband paid over $275 to stay in this crap hole. We were skeptical when we arrived, but were late for our dinner reservations. The elevator smelled like a dead animal and the room was teeny and bathroom was gross! Looked like 10 people stayed since the last cleaning. Im not sure how they can call this place a hotel and get away without the health department shutting them down. Yea the location is alright but its worth a longer cab ride to stay somewhere else. We ate the $300 and went and stayed at the sheraton in tribeca for same amount $ and it was like staying in a palace compared to this sorry excuse for a hotel.

We arrived late on a Saturday evening. There we met the only interested member if staff we encountered during our three night stay. The room was small even by New York standards. The shower room was filthy, one of the bedside lights was broken and was reported several times but nothing done. The lift bell rang every time a lift appeared so fellow guests returning late disturbed everyone around even when they were being quiet.

I found the hotel to be dirty, and wouldn't stay here again. Check in was fine no friendly welcome or anything but that's ok. I first noticed that there was a tacky dollar store air freshener in the corner of the elevator, and the room was very dingy especially in the shower. The bathroom amenities hadn't been changed from the last customer so if that detail isn't even being paid attention to it makes me wonder. The toilet is the same kind of toilet you'd find in a school or public toilet which I thought was odd and it's loud. The walls had stains and bits all smeared on it it really needs new paint it was so gross. The shower is super dingy I stood on a towel in the shower because the floor looked like a dorm room shower. The sheets were clean and the bed was comfortable but the pillows were quite a small size. But at least the bed seemed ok. The hotel is above the subway which means you feel that every 15-20mins at night and is worse in every way during the am rush. Same with traffic for those who are light sleepers as that can all be heard. I booked somewhat last minute so I spent 300incl taxes. I know NYC prices so I'd prefer to just add in the extra money for a nicer one.

Travelled to New York via Toronto on 23rd July. The hotel was clean and all amenities were on hand including WIFI, room was a bit on the small side but perfectly acceptable. We had emailed prior to our stay to ask for the 5th floor and as I was travelling with a companion to ask if we could have rooms next to each other. These emails were replied quickly and on arrival indeed we had been alocated rooms on the 5th floor and next to each other. My companion also said her room was good and with hairdrier and even a small ironing board. The area in China town is not the best or the quietist but then where is in Lower Manhattan. The location was handy for the metro on Canal Street and with easy walking distance of some to nice restaurants in Little Italy. The staff were friendly and it was good value for money we both said we would stay again.

Room Tip: As previous reviews have said go for the 5th floor if possible

When we walked into the hotel, we nearly turned and left, it had to be one of the smallest hotel rooms I have stayed in. We stayed! And found it to be a very convenient location to get anywhere in Manhattan. It is basically sitting on top of 2 major subway lines. It is a short walk to Little Italy, China town and Fulton Street Sea Change, The hotel was clean, the bed comfortable, but we were there during a heatwave and the air con was less than a foot from the bed so very noisey, and if you turned it off, it was oppressively hot.

Hotel Azure is a boutique hotel in Chinatown with Little Italy & Soho within walking distance. The rooms were small which we had expected but had everything we required and were spotlessly clean. Within walking distance of the hotel there were some fabulous restaurants and beautiful shopping districts.
All in all quite a pleasant stay!

I walked by this place for many years and saw them build it in the last decade but thought i'd give it a try at $60 one day. This is the ultimate cheap place to stay, when it is cheap but prices can get high. On a noisy corner, poor soundproofing, tiny rooms, but not dirty or run-down. I've stayed in worse hotels because my usual places were sold out, but this is not exactly a quality place to stay. The front desk clerks were a combination of nasty and nice depending on the shift.

Room Tip: the higher the floor the better, but it is not a tall hotel
