“Very clean, quiet hotel close to restaurants and shops in Chinatown”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

My wife and I stayed here for five nights in September 2012. Our room had two huge and very comfortable beds, was very well-appointed with a large flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities, a bar fridge and free wifi and had a view of Columbus Park and the new World Trade Centre (within walking distance), and the whole hotel was spotlessly clean. There is a free computer and printer in the lobby, but you have to use it while standing. They give you vouchers for free breakfast a few doors down the street; most of the food there is fried, but you can have fresh fruit instead of the fried stuff.
We loved the location facing a park in Chinatown, popular for tai chi and board games and also with the homeless people. The area is densely populated but the street is quite narrow and only one-way so there is not much traffic and we got a good night's sleep. There are lots of small grocery shops and restaurants nearby, and it's fun to explore this area with its mostly aged Chinese residents. It's a bit of a time warp, and we had to walk out to Canal Street to buy the New York Times. The subway on Canal Street is 5-10 minutes walk away. There are no taxis passing by, so you have to walk about 100m to the end of the street to hail one.

I had a hard time finding a hotel in this area that didn't have reports of bedbugs. Hotel Mulberry has not had any reports and was very very clean and comfortable. Very large room overlooking park with wonderful shower. Felt like a 3-4 star hotel for a low price! Would stay again for sure.

The hotel was very clean and the staff was very helpful. We stayed 4 nights and our room was cleaned very day and had fresh clean towels each day. I would recommend requesting a city view room - we watched the chinese people doing their tai chi each morning. Location was perfect - we felt we were closed to everything. Breakfast was okay - Mama's staff could have been more friendly. The hotel is close to lots of Italian restaurants - just a 10 min walk to Little Italy we eat there every night. Would recommend this hotel to all my friends and family.

Room Tip: definitely ask to be above 5th floor and have a street or city view

My wife and I took a redeye in from LAX and arrived early on Friday morning took the subway from JFK and got to the hotel around 9:30 am and hoping to check our bags before heading out on a city tour.Not only could we check our bags but our room was ready!!! The second suprise came when our room was upgraded at no additional charge! We had a great view of the park and the Freedom Tower at the WTC. The staff was great and they had coffee ready in the lobby. I sure needed some. The room while not large was very clean and comfortable, internet, flat screen, and the one of the best showers I have had in a hotel that I can remember.

After a long and memorable NYC tour we had dinner right up the street in Little Italy, great food and what a cool vibe, felt like Sorrento. We colapsed into the great bed and bedding for a great nights sleep.

Breakfast was provided in a little cafe 3 doors down from the hotel. All the food was served on disposible dishes, but no big, the food was fresh cooked and tasty. Fresh squeezed OJ as well.

After our city tour the day before we wanted to walk over to the village and SoHo, an easy walk from the hotel. Canal Street is lined with vendors on Saturday mornings what fun.

We checked out and asked the desk clerk about a cab for later in the afternoon to take us to the cruise pier in Brooklyn and what the cost would be. She suggested a private car for $25.00 which would pick us up at 1:30. Nice Lincoln Towncar picked us up at 1:30. A short stay but an excellent experience overall. When I go back to NY I will choose the Mulberry

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Mulberry. Great view of the Freedom Tower

This Hotel is super clean, the beds are very comfortable and the staff is courteous and responsive. We had a beautiful view of Columbus Park and received free breakfast vouchers for the little cafe three doors down each day (it was perfect.) The subway is only a few blocks away on Canal St. and Little Italy, Soho and the Brooklyn Bridge are walkable. We visited Times Square, Central Park, the MOMA, Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn and all locations were easy to get to by subway. I highly recommend this hotel, the prices are affordable too!

Room Tip: If your room faces the Park, it will be noisier but it is totally worth the view.

My sister & I stayed a saturday Night here & enjoyed courteous service and quite clean & well appointed rooms. Cons are that we could clearly hear the toilet flushing in the room next door and the location is a bit out of the way. However... It was neat to spend some time in Chinatown / little Italy. And subway is not far.

When you first visit New York most people tend to find something around Time Square or Central Park and we are normally look to do this.

This time we had a change and we are glad that we did. The Hotel Mulberry is in Chinatown just around the corner from Little Italy. It is therefore off the main tourist trap and in a much quieter area of the City especially in the evenings. There is a subway station no more than 3 minutes away and you are in the tourist trap areas in no more than 10 minutes.

The building covers thirteen floors but the building is narrow so there are only a few rooms on each floor. By New York standards the rooms are quite spacious and clean with a really comfortable bed. The bathroom was also clean and of a good size. The room had a TV, fridge, coffee, free wifi and a safe. It also had a wonderful view of the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and looked to be enjoying their work and looking after their guests.

An unusual aspect for a centre city hotel was that a complimentary breakfast is offered at "Mamas" a nearby restaurant. (4 doors down). I have to say that it was not the greatest breakfast I have been offered and it was of the few places in the USA that you are offered orange juice or coffee not both with no refills and the staff were not the best. However, it was sufficient to start the day with.

I am however, reviewing the hotel only and cannot fault it and have stayed in a lot worse in New York at a higher rate.
