First of all, the receptionists don't know almost anything about the city. They just stay there and wait the end of their shift, sleeping with opened eyes. If you ask them something they look like "wt*, what should I say now?!".There are only 4 toilets in all the building, so if you have to be ready at 8, it's better... More

I have never stayed (read as attempted to stay) in a more unpleasant establishment in my entire life. I set the bar pretty low... More

We stayed up on the 5th floor in a tiny room that only fit the small bed. The sprinkler system in our room had been covered over and despite 4 complaints to management about it, it was never fixed and they seemed to have to have no concerns about the breach in fire regulations. The shared bathrooms never looked like... More

You get what you pay for. For that price it's ok.IF you won't stay in the room for a long time, you can book a room. We've been there for 4 days. And I had to put my clothes for a pillow, was sleeping in my jacket, in socks and covered myself with my towel.(I didn't want to use their... More

I was extremely leary after reading reviews online but my bf and I went for it since we wouldnt be in the room often. They're super tiny, which I expected, many of manhattan hotels are. Surprisingly our room was clean. No AC but we had a fan in our room. We did get a room with a private bathroom so... More

Please get rid of the TVs: if you don't have acustics to avoid people annoying each other, please don't offer TV service... I've been there all week until yesterday and I had a hard time sleeping... And guests out there: you can be on a budget but that doesn't give you the right to watch tv at a very loud... More

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.
