This was a very nice hotel. It was clean, the staff was very courteous and helpful, the WiFi was fast and easily accessible, and the breakfast buffet was decent. My only complaint was the noise - we were just a few doors down from the lobby and we heard a lot of noise all night long - not enough to... More

very friendly, welcoming staff. I was a little on edge about location of the hotel since I was here primarily for visiting Midtown Area. But the staff was very informative of travel options including the very nearby Subway that gives direct access to Midtown. Subway does require the usual stairs and walking, but not bad. I'm a big girl and... More

Definitely we will repite this hotel. Fells like in house. Good location, safe end near to subway and important places to visit. We spend Thanksgiving in NY and was a best option online, and once there, everything was better

Cons: I requested a quiet room when booking, but they gave me a room on 2nd floor that heard the noise from road traffic the whole night. Pros: The front desk staff Stanley is very nice and helpful, although he might look a bit serious at the beginning. Location of the hotel is very good, close to 2 subway stations... More

The hotel is well located for easy subway connections. The Grand St. Station is just a long block away. Breakfast is reliable and good (Best Western style).

An excellent value alternative in NYC. Chinatown may deter many from considering it, but once inside, the hotel is worth what you pay for it. Staff is clearly the main reason for a very pleasant stay.

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.
