“Best Western - Best Value in Chinatown”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

My husband and I stayed 4 nights in February 2014 at the Best Western Bowery Hanbee hotel and were very pleased. Our room was spacious and attractive, the bathroom was large with a huge shower and great water pressure, and the complimentary breakfast was very convenient. The location is one block from a subway stop and one block from a bus stop with many interesting restaurants and shops within walking distance. For a great value, give the Bowery Hanbee a try!

We stayed at the Best Western Bowery Hanbee while we saw the New York Rangers play their outdoor games at Yankee Stadium. The Chinatown/Little Italy/SoHo area is our favorite part of NYC, and we always try to stay there.

If you're looking for frills, this hotel is not for you. But I mean this as a compliment to the Best Western. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and roomy (by NYC standards), the free breakfast (which includes toast/bagels, muffins, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, eggs, breakfast ham, bacon, or sausages) was excellent, and the hotel is right across the street from the 'B' and 'D' trains, which get you just about anywhere in the city. And my wife loved the radiant heat in the bathroom.

The desk staff was very friendly, and we will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If you're afraid of the street noise, ask for a room that faces the courtyard.

I take art workshops in lower Manhattan/SoHo periodically throughout the year. When the price of a room at the Hanbee is reasonable, spouse and I stay here. We shop the Chinatown fruit stands and have dinner at Forlini's. A great mini vacation for us suburbanites.

A warm room, comfortable bed, and hot shower...what's not to love. Add in our favorite breakfast of hot oatmeal and fresh fruit and we knew we had chosen a great place for our first trip to NYC. We like a clean room too, and this hotel was very clean. We used the subway and found it a quick cheap way to get around. NYC folks were very helpful when we were unsure of directions. There is a Whole Foods about 5 blocks north on Bowery for snacks and a wine store right beside it!

I always kind of expect that one gets what they pay for. I expected the SoHo Best Western to be like any other Best Western: mediocre, but decent for the price. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The rooms were better than most of the Best Westerns that I've stayed in and the price was very reasonable for SoHo. The lobby is a bit dingy, but the rooms are pretty nice and the bathrooms can almost pass as luxurious. Definitely got my money's worth on this stay.

If this is your first trip to NYC or you are a returning tourist, please consider this hotel. I spent 6 nights in January 2014 in this hotel. The hotel staff is very helpful. The subway is very close. The hotel is in Chinatown, close to Little Italy and SoHo. I also stayed here in October 2013.

There is a continental breakfast to start your day.

I will stay at this hotel again.

I stayed at the Best Western Bowery Hanbee for 4 nights in January. The rooms were excellent. I had a Queen bedroom and it was perfect for my girlfriend and I. Loved the heated floors in the bathroom. Location of the hotel had its pros and cons. It’s true that there is road construction going on, but that didn’t bother us one bit. Food in the area was great. Access to the subway was excellent. The only thing about the location that needs improvement is the lack of“nightlife”. Being from the west coast we found ourselves to be awake till 1-2 am due to the time change. Unfortunately there wasn’t anything open within a block or two for us to have a drink. Everything in the vicinity is either a Chinese store or restaurant that was closed by 8pm. This obviously isn’t the hotels fault but just an FYI if you’re looking for a hangout nearby. Overall though… a great hotel. Very clean.

I apologize you had a challenging time finding some "nightlife". In SoHo, just a few blocks from the hotel has some clubs/bars. The front desk can assist with some recommendations. We hope you will stay with us the next time you are in NYC.
