The view was nice and facilities were very clean Parking and access to valet/ waiting area were difficult. Rooftop bar was closed.
Right in the middle of Downtown New York, easy to get to everything walking or by subway. The hotel had good, reasonably priced food and nice clean rooms. It was great for a weekend get-away with my husband.
Hotel is a good location, within walking distance to SoHo, Nolita, Bowery, short train ride into Brooklyn. I came in on a red-eye and arrived at the hotel at 6:30 and they had a room for me, which they claimed it was a "free upgrade." Heater didn't work as well. Room was 50 degrees when I arrived. Put it on full blast and it only got up to 58 in 4 hours. I left it on and took off, returning 15 hours later at 3am and the room was still only 62 degrees. The luggage storage lady was rude and inattentive. She was rude when I dropped off my bag and I had to retrieve it myself. Also they used stickers with crappy adhesive so now my luggage has goo on it.
I was looking for a hotel in NYC within walking distance of the Lower East Side, and found this. It was one of the cheapest hotels that met that criterion, at $250 per night (not including tax, which brought it up to $290). The room was sufficiently large to be comfortable to move around in, and the bed was firm (which I like). Everything was clean enough. There is free internet and it's fast enough to use it for work. The person who checked me in was friendly and had been nice on the phone when I called to say I'd be checking in late. The person who checked me out was fine, but less friendly. I can't criticize the staff, though - they were fine. There is nothing in the hotel to enjoy. No lobby to sit in (i.e., there's the front desk and maybe a chair or two, but that's it), no exercise room as far as I can tell, no restaurant, nothing. And no coffee served in the morning, so you can use the coffee machine in the room (which I never do - no fresh milk for coffee makes it unpalatable) or you can walk for a mile to get somewhere to get coffee. So if you get up early (as I did, coming from France I was on a different time schedule), it's really kind of disappointing and difficult. While it was clean, the price wasn't low enough for me to consider it again. I'd rather pay an extra $50 per night and have a better location and overall better hotel facilities. (I might even be willing to pay $100 more for that - it was really that unpleasant.)
The view was amazing, hotel was clean and very modern and the staff was incredibly helpful. We were in town for a bike race and they even offered us an hour of entered stay for free so we could shower before driving home. The WiFi was a little unpredictable.
Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. The location was excellent, within a close walk to all of Manhattan's lower east side, and only a couple blocks from the subway. Our room had a great view of downtown and the Manhattan Bridge!
Clean rooms, spacious bathroom. Popeye's on the lower level.
Sentral beliggenhet ved Nedre del av Manhatten med 1min til nærmeste Subway. Rommene var stilfulle. Rolige rom ut mot baksiden. Gratis internet. Sikkerheten var bra pga heisen og vakten nede. Bra standard. Litt trangt ved frokostbespisning. Litt lite utvalg i pålegg ved frokosten.
Hotellet virket ganske nytt og holdt veldig god standard generelt på hele hotellet. Det lå sentralt i Chinatown og kun et kvartal fra subway stasjon. Vi bodde i Midttown sist vi var i NYC, men trivdes mye bedre i Chinatown. Ikke så mye turister og mer bra resturanter og butikker.Veldig bra rengjøring samt serviceinnstilt og hyggelig personale. Spesielt Hugh og Sayed i resepsjonen var veldig hyggelige og behjelpelige med råd og anbefalinger. Noe begrenset utvalg til frokost og ikke plass til alle i frokostsal, men dette var bagateller. Veldig bra "Value for money" ! Noe lite plass i frokostsal, men ikke et stort problem.
Veldig bra service, ok bra rom med stort bad frokost var ikke helt bra
Sentral beliggenhet og hyggelig personale. Rommet kunne gjerne vært litt større. Hadde også vært greitt med et kjøleskap. TV var uklart.
Veldig nært alt vi ønsket å se. Kjempespennende strøk veldig nær Chinatown og Litle Italy. Var helt perfekt for meg og min datter. Var litt trangt til frokost litt liten sitteplass men det var greit nok. Savnet noe kjøttpålegg.
I thought that the way this tiny hotel was wedged into this older part of time was cool. Literally the hotel is so small I almost missed it even when looking right at it. A bigger sign would've been helpful. The breakfast bar was good, the staff was friendly, the room was small but had everything needed. My one major complaint was the inability to control the thermostat. There was no cool feature on the thermostat, only heat, and the staff for some reason couldn't explain this to me. I was simply told it would get cooler as the temperature went down. So during the day when it was almost 80 degrees outside, it was almost 80 degrees in our room as well. We were only able to cool the room off at night by opening our window. Also, even though I told the staff several times before my stay (I made my reservation about a month ahead of time) that I would be coming in at 6am I was still unable to get in my room until 1pm. So after riding a bus for 7 miserable hours my wife and I had to walk around NYC for another 7 hours, wearing the same clothes from the day before and with no sleep or showers.
We had to take the tour bus to Niagara falls...and the hotel was at walking distance Good breakfast...and coffee at the lobby through the whole day.
The young woman at the front desk was so kind and helpful. It was a wonderful experience.
Good veiw)) Housekeeper didt change towels
location is quite good since it is close to subway. the staff attitude particular the lady (I believe she may be the owner or the senior manager). One morning I met her in the restaurant for breakfast. She warned me I cannot use the paper for put bread in the microoven. In fact, there is no paper plate in the restaurant but it is not the main point. Main point is her manner. Then, she left the restaurant and turn off the light. Oh...my god. I am still in the restaurant and I am the customer. I do not know reason since it is my second time to meet this lady...
was really easy to find the bed was like sleeping on a plank of wood, the rooms were very small
next to Chinatown and to places we wanted to visit the guy at the reception didn't seem too receptive....felt we were disturbing him when we had a question to ask him
Hotel was very clean and staff polite and always ready to help. I liked private bathroom, good bed and TV. They even provided small breakfast. We appriciated that hotel was next to the Brooklyn bridge cause it was very easy to find it:) /Chinatown is quite chaotic/.Great place for everybody who loves chinese cuisine. The smell of food from Chinatown. No Starbucks close to hotel.Subway on the bridge.
Cheaper than many other hotels, croissants and tea included, good tv, bathroom fairly clean Bedsheets quite grubby-looking, bed very hard, shower quite painful, wallpaper rather interesting...
I already knew the hotel. It's very well located (Lower East side, close to bars, clubs and music venues), clean and recently renovated, and well-priced with regards to other hotels in Manhattan. No remarks here because for that rate one really cannot expect a whole lot of luxury.
Cleaness ,wifi Noisy , no shower had to go to another room for shower
All of New York, nothing about the hotel! Everything I didn't like
Just position and price are good. clean in room and very very small
Nothing at all. Single thin mattress on wood platform. Room in 6' wide with no ceiling, just chicken wire. Three common bathrooms per floor are disgusting. Rotting ceilings in number of areas. No elevator. Drug addicts and hookers walking round. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!'
Location Gross bathrooms with collapsing ceilings, loud and dumb neighbors, too bright to sleep, if the A/C goes out you'll basically suffocate.
What an unusual place! You walk up four long flights, get a bright and clean though windowless cell, find acceptable bathrooms down the hall, and wonder if it's a good idea. The room has tiny cabinet, light, plugs, mattress, sheets, blanket, pillow, trashcan. You were given soap and shower slippers. The floor is locked and your room is locked. Hardware screen for a ceiling to make the HVAC common to all 80 cells and it works well. A number of students with backpacks giving it a hostel feel, though the lower floors have the same design though much older and occupied by local Chinese. Apparently the design is a tenament style housing for single men. Very interesting. Unusual value for Manhattan. Safe. Don't go for the view.
It wasn't that bad. Don't expect the Ritz, its a hostel. They cleaned it everyday and there weren't bugs. It's a small room, but it's a single. It is loud and bright but earplugs and eyemask worked fine. They keep the windows open so it can get drafty but keeps it from getting too smelly. There are shared bathrooms but aside from early in morning it was never a problem. And there is NO elevator so your legs get a workout. But staff was great, at $44 a night for 5 nights there's not a cheaper way to stay in Manhattan, you're in heart of Chinatown and Little Italy, lots of culture and super cheap shopping. I'd stay there again.
Nothing no elevator On constructing For one sentence, This is not a HOTEL Backpackers is better than this
You get exactly what you pay for, a very safe, clean and very, very small room about 4 feet wide and 6 feet long. But that is exactly what I wanted, plus an internet connected computer at the end of the hall. Also very, very quiet. Stairway was a bit dirty and there was no elevator up to 5th floor.
The location was nice. Easy access to Subway and walkable to China Town and Little Italy. The price was affordable for staying in Manhattan. The hotel provided towels, shampoo, travel tooth brush and tooth paste. The bathrooms are shared but generally we didmt have to wait long for an opening. Also they are spacious and cleaned daily. This is a decent place if you are traveling alone and just looking for a cheap please to sleep. The room was very small (6'x9'). The mattress springs were squeaky and uncomfortable. There sheets and comforter were stained. Only on of the outlets worked. The room had a small fan but NO WINDOW and very little room to move around as the double bed took up most of the space. All that said our biggest complaint was the noise. There is no sound insulation. We were in a room in the middle of the hallway and we could hear talking from adjacent rooms, all of the movement in the hallway, doors opening and closing and even street noise (sirens, large trucks). If you are a light sleeper this is definitely not the place for you.
i got to help out a friend in need. This place was just bad. Bed beds. Public washroom. No tv. No windows. Rude staff. Dirty. Do not book a room here unless it's your last choice and you're totally broke. I could have pocketed the cash and gotten better sleep in my car and cleaner with a packet of baby wipes. The staff was so rude I think they may have been on work release from jail. I didn't even want to shower it was so gross. I think the rest of the hotel guests may have been on meth they seemed content. For $100.00 bucks it was not money well spent. STAY AWAY.
room as cheap They put me in a cheaper room (that i didn't reserve) and charged me for the room I booked. they filled up all the rooms so i was unable to switch.
The bed was horribly uncomfortable, creaked everytime you moved. Staff, unfriendly n unhelpful Bad
Proximity to china town It's worst Hotel which I have come across in my life and it's zero return for money. The rooms were extremely small with roof top open, you cannot speak to anyone being in room. Bathrooms were extremely dirty and wet and no soaps, showers were extremely slow. No Toilet papers, common bathrooms are many but all are occupied cause they have 55 rooms on same floor. Which are shared by everyone. I will never recommend an individual for this room. But the guy at reception was very good. Around the street I came across two guys who have done the booking for same Hotel but at mid-night 2:30 am they were denied room as their Room was given to someone else. So overall extremely poor hotel, without any facilities, open roofs (there's iron mesh which is roof of some 55 rooms) but can be good for students who cannot afford more money from china:-)
