Although this hotel is old and a little dated the king room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Sean and Jeffrey at the front desk were extremely helpful with directions and navigating the subway system. This friendly duo and made our stay even better. It was a great location for walking to Little Italy, Soho and of course... More

Don't be put of by the hotels location it is a great hotel with cosy bedrooms and even though the location is in Chinatown it is close by to little Italy and a good location for travelling. The breakfast is fine although it is served on paper plates. It is reasonably priced and is cosy.

I booked this hotel because it was only a block and a half away from the place where my meeting was the next day. It turned out to be a fabulous location, and I wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy it! To one side was Chinatown, to the other Little Italy. A subway station was just a couple... More

It's fun to be among the bustle of Chinatown and convenient close to the subway. Breakfast is plentiful and extended hours. Our room was what you would expect of NYC hotel space. However, the room placement was noisy, as it was across from housekeeping suite. Just ask for a different room and everything will be just what you need in... More

The kind folks behind the desk were our HEROES after the Leon Hotel "had a glitch" and would not honor our reservation. Best Western found a room for us, comforted us with kind words, friendly smiles, and a great attitude. Also the room was surprisingly roomy and clean and we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast out on the patio. Cannot say... More

We booked this hotel because it was located near some of the sites we planned to visit in NYC (Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Center, Chinatown and Soho). The room was clean, comfortable & surprisingly quiet despite being on 2nd floor facing the street. We left the car for two nights in a garage nearby on Chrystie St ($35/day)... More

Overall, our experience was great. The hotel is only one block from subway, has many reasonable price restaurants in the surrounding, and very clean. The staff for check in was good, especially the manager. However, the staff attitude when we were checking out was terrible.

Just stayed 7 nights on first visit to NY, wasn't exactly sure where to stay. Easy access to Metro, buses and taxi. 2minute walk to Little Italy and a host of Italian restaurants. There are lots of options nearby other than Italian so walk for a few blocks and explore.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
