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

I once again had to be back in my old hometown for some business and though I usually stay at The Franklin on the Upper Eastside I needed to be closer to downtown as I had early morning appointments. I Have used Best Western many times over the years so when I saw the Hanbee in the Bowery area I... More

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.

We stayed here for one night before getting on an east coast tour. The location is excellent if you want to take one of the bus tours. Large spacious rooms and very clean. They serve a pretty decent hot breakfast too. Would highly recommend if you wish to explore New York.

24 hour front desk staff always gave a cheerful 'good morning!' and were very helpful. Breakfast was delicious and there was WiFi available in the rooms. The hotel was within a couple minutes walk of numerous subway stations and within walking distance to Little Italy, SoHo etc. The Chinatown area I thought was a little dumpy, especially at night.

This was our first time staying in the lower Manhattan (usually stay in upper west side) great location with lots to see and do close by. Walking distance to Little Italy and subway station close also. Shout out to Sean at the front desk, very professional and friendly. Big rooms for New York City, and decent free breakfast.

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.
