I simply cannot ward you off this hotel strongly enough. It is leant up against the side of the Manhattan Bridge and the trains run all night. I am currently sat looking out of my window watching the subway go past me ten feet away. Ear plugs will not help as the whole room shakes. The room is so small we cannot unpack, there is no tea or coffee in there and no breakfast facilities. Please don't make the same mistake we did, it has ruined our holiday and to think these people have the gall to charge you to stay here...

I truly hope they don't get punished by their own success. This is one serious good hotel for a very very good price. Yes, it's located in Chinatown, but that's the wonderful thing about it too. There's an endless number of Chinese and other eastern restaurants most of them with reasonable quality and ridiculous low prices. The hotel itself is ok. It's not the most modern, but who cares? You're in this city to discover it and only need the hotel to sleep, right? So I was happy it was clean. Yes, clean and not New York clean. The only thing you need to be aware of is the fact the subway runs feet above your head, so ask for a room as far away from the front as possible. Apart from that, and the little off-path location, this will be my hotel for a long time whenever I'm in town.
There's an ice machine and vending machines located on the top floor. The lobby is located at the 2nd floor which is a little odd at first. Room was also above average size.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as far away from the subway as possible

I would recommend this hotel to anyone for being affordable to begin with. This is a relatively quiet and affordable part of Manhattan. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean (but could use a paintjob) and the beds are good. If you have a view then it's on new WTC but with the Manhattan bridge right outside (double windows so not too noisy). Since you're in Chinatown and near Little Italy you're always near good and affordable food. All downtown attractions are walking distance, and the F train which is five minutes out brings you to the heart of Midtown (West 4th street which is good to enjoy the nightlife) and anywhere from there. If you're on a budget then you can't do much better than this.

We spend a couple of nights at this hotel and were pretty happy with it.
You won't find many clean rooms with 2 queens for for < $200. We were in room 410 and didn't find train noise to be any problem.

Good stuff - E Broadway station pretty close; Good Value; Helpful staff - gave us a better rate upon arrival - We had to make changes to and combine reservations and leave a day earlier than planned which was no problem with the staff. No hassle stay.

Not so good stuff - no parking or deal with local lot/garage. We used a Groupon to park at an Icon lot and it was about a mile away. A mini fridge would have been nice.

You dont always need a big brand hotel in NYC if you are just looking for a place to stay at a reasonable price. Thats the Hotel 91, on E Broadway in Chinatown. The front is hidden somewhat among the Chinese businesses, but when inside, its different and more than adequate for business or pleasure. Rooms are small, but the beds are firm, the bathrooms plenty good. One side has the subway train noise and rattle, but it really doesnt affect sleep when you are tired. Subway close by and lots of Chinese food places to explore. Not far from anyplace in lower Manhattan. And the rate is less than typical NYC rates. Try it!
