“Not bad, good price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

No frills but comfortable; affordable relative to other Manhattan hotels. Chinatown location unusual and provides a very intimate window into the workings of the city. The lobby was on the second floor and a little inconvenient.

Hotwire found this hotel for me and I was pleasantly surprised! Friendly staff, convenient location, cheap overnight parking nearby, clean, comfortable, affordable, quiet (except for train noise), highly recommended!

It doesn't have an impressive entrance, it's on the second floor of a building in Chinatown. Upon arrival we were quite disappointed by the smell of Chinatown( first time in New York?)
But soon after we got in it is alright, it's a clean budget hotel and as simple as you can expect it to be.
Even tho it's near to the rail but you can't hear anything thanks to the special window treatment in the hotel room.
Rooms are spacious and bright! That's what we all want in a New York hotel room! It is very near to subway no 7 that serves an direct line to SoHo and fifth avenue.

When I travel the only requirements I have for the hotel are that it's clean, good location, and it doesn't drain my budget. That is exactly what Hotel 91 is. The staff was very friendly at check in and helped us navigate to the nearest subway entrance. Our room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. It's obvious that it's an older building and the rooms are a little cramped-but that's just how it goes in NYC. Who goes to NYC to hangout in a hotel room anyway? Not me! The location was also really nice! It was awesome to visit all of the Chinese shops and restaurants and the people were friendly.

I've stayed in Midtown a few times and definitely prefer staying at Hotel 91. I highly recommend it and consider it my own NYC secret.

By New York standards, our two-queen-bed room was palatial, particularly for the price. The hotel was very quiet, and the staff was kind and courteous. We had some great Asian meals in the neighborhood, plus there's an American-style breakfast/lunch joint called the Cup and Saucer a couple blocks away. The subway stop is a few blocks away but not too far. We also easily hailed cabs just out front. Honestly, I can't say enough about how clean, comfortable and affordable Hotel 91 was.

Location in Chinatown, markets on the street smelled bad, parking a block and a half away, about $35.00. Ordered dinner and breakfast delivered because I was afraid to walk outside. Not at all what I expected for location after seeing the website. The pictures were beautiful, and I felt completely safe once inside. Nice granite and tile bathroom, comfortable beds. I ordered dinner and breakfast in since I didn't want to venture outside again. Call me coward, but coming from a small town...

Just returned from a weekend trip to NYC. Family and I stayed at Hotel 91 in Chinatown. I found the hotel a great place to use as a base to explore Chinatown. The hotel is loacted next to the Manhattan Bridge and it's elevated train tracks so train noise might be an issue to some. The front staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful. The room was okay. Clean and cool. Had a couple of problems. 1. The bathtub drain would not close. 2. The bedside lamp would not stay on,either, a problem with switch or socket. Other than those minor issues, I would stay here again.
