It was horrible! We got there at 11.30pm at the person at the front desk was already unpolite and rough. He asked us to go up in the room to check and pay right after. So we went there and were totally shocked! Like a prison, there was door next to door, bathrooms disgusting, the walls don't even go up...

I stayed here for two nights because I was in NYC for a sporting event. I did not need much as I was out all day. I stayed at a similar property up the street so I knew what the rooms and shower facilities were going to be like. I paid $94 for two night however I disagree with a...

I stayed at the Bowery on a last minute trip to NYC with friends on a budget. For 4 nights it was around $150 per person which is an amazing price for a good location Manhattan. However, there are a few factors that might deter travellers from staying here. Firstly, the rooms don't have a ceiling. So you can hear...

On my first day at the Bowery's my luggage, which I checked in with the concierge, disappeared. Two weeks of agony and anxious moments followed, but the staff acted as if they could not be bothered about what I was going through. There is no doubt that the Bowery is in a terrific location but the city of New York...

Pay attention in the details of or reservation or they will charge you a different price. The place is really simple, but the location is great. The room feels like a cage but is clean. If your priority is save money is a good option. But if it is comfort, keep away.

This was my first place to book using the much-touted, overrated booking.com. It was a great price for the five nights that I was going to be there and it was on the border of SoHo, within walking distance of the Brooklyn Bridge and Chinatown. I had booked one kind of room based on availability, but when I arrived, they...
