Neighborhood
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.

At the Ridge Hotel we were given a 10ft x 18ft sleeping space for two people for three nights, although we had taken the precaution of booking a triple room. The room had no fridge, no kettle, wardrobe that was the depth of a broom cupboard, (containing 4inch-long clothes rack) no table, no chair and only one bedside unit. The bed itself consisted of a bunk construction, from which you could watch the disproportionately giant TV at ceiling height, and the headboard shared its identity with a glass bathroom partition wall. The building is a customized corner apartment block, into which a lift shaft has been squeezed and 42 tiny 'pod' bedrooms. The front of the building boasts 'street art' from head to foot either side of the door and a greater expanse of graffiti around the side. Provision for breakfast consists of all-day snacks in the basement: muffins, biscuits, hot water and cold juice. Wi-fi is available but the advertised ATM is not. The air-conditioning units in the rooms have been boxed in, to prevent any chance of adjustment; and, without staff intervention, the air-con would switch itself on every few minutes, night and day, precluding any opportunity of sleep. You may like to stay in this hotel for the wonderful view of the city that you get from the 7th-storey roof garden complete with plastic plants and permanently locked lavatory. But if you do, first make sure that you are a pint-sized Lilliputian with a thimble-full of luggage and a wallet full of cash.

Just got back from a 4 night stay here, wonderful little hotel, clean rooms, roof terrace, lovely and helpful staff, right on a subway station so easy to navigate the city. Only constructive criticism would be to have a kettle in rooms, there are communal facilities for drinks and snacks but us Brits like to have a brew before people!! Definately recommend and would stay again! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Spur of the moment, I needed a room for one night and chose this hotel. The room was nice, the location is amazing and the price was comparatively very good. This may not be a massive 4-Seasons, with pristine pewter and soundproofed everything. But the staff MORE than made up for any little nitpicks. They were very friendly, helpful and made me feel super comfortable.

Great hotel not far from the heart of New York. Rooms were very clean and bigger than I thought they would be, they had everything you could need including a safe, iron and hairdryer. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay and made us feel welcome. Location was good, right next to the subway which takes you into time square or anywhere you want to go. Location of the hotel was also in a nice area with plenty of restaurants and bars. The rooftop bar at the hotel was amazing with views over all of New York and the Empire State Building. Was so lovely to sit up there and watch the sunset or sit in the sun in the day. The hotel has some nice touches like a room to chill out with free drinks and snacks. For the price of the hotel it was very reasonable and good value for money. The only negative is the air con in the room was quite poor so was very hot at night when trying to sleep, however this was not a huge issue. Also the WiFi didn’t work very well if at all but who needs WiFi on holiday! Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again if we returned to New York.
