“Excellent budget option”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We stayed for 12 nights for new years eve 2013-2014, price was good compared to most hotels on the Manhattan area. Its located in Chinatown/Lowe Manhattan, so not as fancy as the fith avenue or times square, but well we used the hotel to sleep and rest only, all the nice places are around a 10-20 minute train ride.
Besides the cold of that time of the year(I am from a tropical country), so needed to wear many layers of clothing, the place is excellent.
Check in is at 4pm, we arrived at 1pm, they did early check in, highly appreciated.
Breakfasts was ok, try the waffles, the machine broke, and they replaced it within a day or less; pro tip: go early to get the breakfast, it can get crowdy around 8 am.

Pros:
Location: Subway station is 2 blocks away, 3-5 minute walk, train wait was about 5-15 minutes, so very good for out trip porpuses.
Room: Room was clean, small but decent, had a safe, AC/heat, hot water, closet, nice large Windows,room cleaning was daily they even would wait until we were out to go clean, very nice personel.
View: we got a Corner room, so we were facing at the Manhattan bridge and also the Financial District.
Cons:
Our Corner Room(804) had a TV not very well positioned, you could see it from the top of the bed(the closet was in the middle sort of speak), but well, we only watch tv for a bit at night before going to bed so, it was not really a Con.
Taxi service to airport: they will book a taxi for you, they told us the taxi to JKF was a flat rate of $40, but taxi driver charged us more at airport arrival.
There is only 1 elevator, you might find this a little annoying at some times, but not a big deal.

We appreciate you selecting our hotel for your extended holiday in NYC. Thank you for taking the time to share your review so we can celebrate what we are doing well and also improve where we can. I am a little confused by the cost of the taxi to JFK. The yellow NYC regulated taxi's to JFK are a flat rate of $52. We have a contract with a car service for a flat rate of $59 to JFK. You may have been in a gypsy cab, which should be avoided as they do change their fares and are not the safest form of transportation. You will have to visit again when the weather is warmer - there is so much to offer here all year round.

All the best.

I stayed here for 5 nights on my most recent visit to the city. I booked well in advance and was able to acquire a multi level suite. Check in and check out both went smoothly and the hotel clerk arranged a ride to Newark Int'l which was appreciated. Also appreciated was the ability to leave our suitcases there after we checked out as we had several hours to kill before it was time to head to the airport. I loved the view of the Manhattan bridge and Chinatown from the large upstairs window. The multi level room was awesome for my husband and I's needs; he is more of a morning person and I tend to stay up later. It was nice to have the a space to hang out in while the other slept, being that this is NYC and rooms tend to be tiny; it was also the only spot in the room where my husband could stash his suitcase easily.

As the title of this review states, the location of the CIMB is, in my opinion, its best feature. Two blocks north of the hotel, at the corner of Grand and Crystie, is the closest subway station. Here you can catch the B&D trains, both of which easily get one into midtown, near many of the city's popular sites. Also, 5-6 blocks east on Canal gets you to the F train which gets you quickly to Brooklyn Bridge Park. The Chinatown/Little Italy neighborhood is an interesting, safe location with lots of different food options and many things to see as well.

One thing that would make this room even better would be if they found a way to squeeze in a microwave and refrigerator, but as stated before, there's not a lot of extra room.

The only reason I am not rating this hotel 5 stars is the noise due to renovations. During the 3 weekdays during our stay, it started up at approximately 9am. I understand that renovations need to be done on hotels at some point, but it didn't make it any less annoying. Fortunately, we weren't in our room much.

I will likely stay here again on my next visit to NYC.

Thank you so much for staying with us while you were in NYC and taking the time to review our hotel. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed all our location has to offer and it was a good hub to see other areas of the city. The views from the loft rooms are amazing. My sincere apologies that the construction noise detracted from your stay. Fortunately the construction phase has been completed and the new rooms will be available in the new few weeks are we finish the last few details in the rooms. Please stay with us again the next time you are in NYC.

We stayed here for one night during our visit to New York. The hotel is located in Lower Manhattan area. The room was well maintained and clean. We found the hotel staff friendly by nature. It's a good deal to stay in NY with awesome service. The customer service was good!!

Let's face it - most of us want a good deal and for New York this place is a steal...
Service: excellent, including the garage staff next door (make sure you have cash, $35 a day, unless you get the free parking package, which must be booked on the internet, and I was not able to find it).
Value: excellent, really, unless you require a five-star standard in a budget hotel. Breakfast is included - juices, cereal, eggs, make-your-own waffles, fruits... coffee/tea are available all day.
Sleep Quality: great, although the bed was unusually high, so if you have a tendency to roll, you've been warned...
Location: midtown is in my opinion better, but if you've been to NYC before and want to explore another part of the city, this safe Chinatown spot is great!! Subway is about 4 blocks away and if you like walking, many places are within reach, including Little Italy, SOHO, Ground Zero area, Brooklyn Bridge... wear comfortable shoes! If you don't, however, there are countless places in the area where you can get a foot massage :-)
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and the area -- will definitely return!

Room Tip: Room 904 was a corner room with two walls of windows and a view of the bridge. We also watched Tai C...

I really appreciated your comments in your review. This is a great area for returning travelers to see the neighborhoods of NYC and be close to all that downtown has to offer. There are certainly great options for foot massages in Chinatown, too. I will certainly share your positive comments about the hotel with my staff. We allot a certain number of parking package rooms online - it is truly a fantastic deal, if you are driving in to the city. We look forward to your next stay with us.

I chose this hotel for our second visit to NYC only because it had pretty good ratings, breakfast, free wifi and was located in lower Manhattan. We arrived well before the check in time and we were given a room straightaway on the 8th floor. I wanted higher but they told me about the renovations on higher floors. I asked for a room with a some kind of city view and we got this clean, spacious room with a lovely view of the city on the right and the bridge on the left - absolutely brilliant. The room was big with nice bathroom and very relaxing shower. The only thing they could improve was the breakfast. It was so so but was free and it set you up for a day. The room was very warm considering temperatures outside -10 C. For the first two nights we actually had AC on :) but it was nice coming back tired and frozen to this warm, cosy room. One more thing - the bed is really high and I found it funny but very comfortable. Overall, for 2 star hotel not bad :)

Room Tip: Ask for a free upgrade to a room on higher floors with a city view. Staff is very polite and kinda c...

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your kind review. I will certainly share it with my staff. We will brainstorm ways to improve our breakfast while still meeting the Comfort Inn brand standards. We are very excited about the 17 rooms that are being added to the top two floors of the hotel. The views from those rooms at stunning! The carpet is being installed currently and then we will be installing the furniture, TVs, etc and should have them ready to rent in the next month. You will enjoy it the next time you stay with us.

My husband and I got to the hotel super early in the morning and the reception Shawn greeted us and helped us check in and sign us up for the choice hotel membership. Shawn was very friendly. Our room is a queen size bed unit. It is very clean and cozy. The bathroom looks brand new. So far I am loving it. We will stay here again for sure!!!
