“Decent if you like to sleep on a rock!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Nice hotel located on china town, not far from everything else in the city, small room barely got the queen bed with a little walking room around it. Had a nice flat screen Tv though. Had a decent selection of channels. Bed was hard as a rock! Bed consisted of a bed board and a 1 to 2 in pad. And small skinny pillows. My back was killing me all night and still is today.

I have read the reviews here.....Yes, it is in chinatown (although I felt safer there than in many NYC areas), we had no problem finding snacks/drinks and most of the 'locals' there were very nice. The staff at mayor hotel were very friendly and stored our luggage for us until we could check in (and after we checked out). They also have a driver service that was cheaper than cabs and called him for us! We had two pretty small twin beds that weren't super comfy, but did the job. The breakfast was also decent and included in the price. Wifi worked great.....the bridge traffic was noisy, but after a day of sight-seeing and taking a tylenol pm, i didn't even notice (and I'm a pretty light sleeper). This was our first trip to NYC so we were VERY nervous about where we stayed, and also on a budget. I did NOT notice any mold or anything gross in the hotel. Our room was clean, I didnt notice any rips/tears in curtains or sheets or anything. ....The rooms were small, I could not imagine spending the day there.....so, if you are planning on just hanging out at the hotel, this probably isn't the place for you. But if you leave early and return to hotel to shower/sleep, this is a good deal. Took us 3-5 minute walk to get to subway from front door of hotel. Over-all, for the price and location coupled with the fact that we really didn't spend much time there, we would stay again and feel this was a good value and experience for the money.

Room Tip: Didn't stay in a room with one bed, maybe the twin rooms are nicer? Also, ask clerk about lugga...

Moldy shower, hair everywhere in bathroom, they photo copy your credit card and ID and keep the info for 5 years (is that legal?), hard, uncomfortable beds, dirty under desk and nightstand, very basic cable- maybe 10 channels and you don't control your own heat/cooling. Lastly, don't plan on sleeping.... Train overhead runs all night.

The service was great- but the hotel is across the street from a very loud train, the rooms are tiny, the bed is hard, the sheets are stained and torn, the wallpaper in the room was torn and there was a big hole in the wall, and the price is way too much for the complete lack of quality. The breakfast is coffee with powdered creamer and cold Chinese pastries.

Noise from the streets, trains and from the rooms near you. Rooms are very small and need more than a shine up.

Most of these reviews are about right but you get what you pay for. My wife and I leave hotels at 9am and don't return until 9pm, so why pay for all sorts of facilities you never use? We ask for a clean bed, en suite bathroom and a wardrobe and that's what we got, you have to stay somewhere. If you are a very light sleeper then this is not for you, the trains over Manhattan Bridge do rumble but not loudly, it's like distant thunder and they a few and far between during 2200-0600. Breakfast is coffee/tea and a roll/bun take it back to your room. It is just less than a flat 400 yards to East Broadway subway, however the weather was nice so we walked to Seaport, Lower Manhattan and Little Italy etc. The staff are helpfull and sorted my new I Pad for me (the Apple server in the shop was down) however the Wi Fi is weak but workable. Chinatown, so what, it's a new experience, safe and very cheap food, look for the cleanliness sticker from the NY authority. May try Hotel 91, 50 yards away next time.

Room Tip: Difficult as the hotel is almost always full. It says something.
