This was our second stay here and again it met our expectations. Large, clean rooms that were cleaned well even with limited staff due to the hurricane. Front desk and security (Jeff) were extremely helpful and kind. Suggestions: Ask for a room on the higher floor for quiet. The coffee is really bad, but there is a great cafe around...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 days in August 2011. This hotel is situated between Little Itaty and Chinatown so restuarant selection is plentiful. The hotel lobby is located on the 2nd floor and normally you need to take an elevator. We chose this hotel to access free wireless internet along with breakfast. There are muffins, bagels, toast, fruit,...

We arrived and without asking were upgraded to a bigger room. And it really was bigger even for New York standards! The bed was big and comfortable, bathroom small but very clean. We had a great view over the busy Chinatown streets and watched the hustle and bustle go by. The noice was noticeable, but hey, you're in the Big...

Great hotel with free wifi, nice room and warm bathroom floor, handy to everything. Nice to have free breakfast but the breakfast area is too small. Will definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for a long, hot, humid mid-August weekend. It is right in the heart of Chinatown and Little Italy. There is a lot going on around, with no shortage of bars and restaurants in both of those areas, Rivington Street, Spring Street and the East Village all in walking distance. The room is clean and modern with a...

We had our room flood in the middle of the night from a broken valve in the bathroom. We couldn't use our bathroom for about four to five hours not to mention our belonging where soaked.

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel several times and alway return here whenever we are in Manhattan.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
