Visited New York in October for 7 nights with my 16yr old daughter so I wanted a clean, modern hotel in a decent location including ease of access for the subway without having to pay $2,000. Hotel Mulberry fitted the bill on every count - less than two years old, very clean, comfortable beds, a decent sized room, very helpful staff and within a few blocks of the Canal St No 6 subway train - no distance to Grand Central and a transfer to Time Sq or continue on up to Museum Mile.

An extra bonus was the voucher for breafast at a very friendly cafe two doors down from the hotel - and there is even a kettle in the room as well as a fridge - a bonus for a New York hotel.

There is a nice park opposite used ostensibly by the locals to meet, play Mah Jong, chess etc - a very friendly atmosphere - and with Canal St/ Chinatown and Little Italy on the doorstep it was a great location.

Very highly recommended - I would definitely go back - especially if I was once again paying in the region of $1600 for the week.

Room Tip: A balcony overlooking the park would have been nice - call the hotel to discuss rates/ how much extr...

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights with my husband. We had a room on the top floor and it was large by New York standards (we stayed in another hotel in midtown for 8 nights). Request a room on the top floor - it was quiet (for New York).
Good location if you want to stay in Chinatown/Little Italy. It's about 2 blocks to the little Italy part of mulberry street.

Hotel is close to SoHo. However, I preferred staying in the Flatiron/Gramercy park area. It is more expensive to get a taxi from broadway to hotel mulberry (about $15) compared to about $8. Still, Hotel Mulberry is a lovely and clean hotel, it just depends on what you want to do in New York.

OK we go to New York because its close from home and has everything.This hotel was clean we had the room with the amazing terasse. Like the other peolple it is true the room were clean and nice staff.( even if we had the room with the 2 double bed it is really small )The sad thing is that you hear everything its like someone is starting your shower but no. The isolation is not good.Would we go back to that place No, for the reason that when we go to New York we like to go see some of the Broadway shows and we like to end the nigth on Time Square and then its far, its late, different kind of people at nigth in the metro.

My husband and I spent last week here. After a day in buzzling NYC full of impressions and really tired it was wonderful to come "home" to this hotel. Superclean, a very comfortable bed a great view over Columbus Park and sky-scrapers in the back-ground and on the 10th floor the noise from the street didn´t bother us much. Location great and the staff very helpful. Next stop in NYC Mulberry Hotel again, absolutely!

Room Tip: Higher floor, better view and less noise.

Warmly recommended for New York tourist trips. The hotel isn't large, but well maintained and with pleasant staff. The location is great, with a number of metro lines close by (though always a 10-15 minutes walk away) in the heart of Chinatown. The quality you get for the price is of great value, particularly given the near by competitors. They serve breakfast in an adjacent cafe and it's a simple choice but of good food. The rooms are simple, but clean, new, tidy, aren't noisy and generally - you'll feel good staying in this establishment. It's not a business type hotel, but for sightseeing and leisure travel - it's an excellent choice.

We, three friends from Sweden, stayed in Hotel Mulberry for 5 nights last week. The staff were all great and very helpful. We got room 503, which has two queen beds. The beds were VERY comfortable! The view was not the best, but it didn't bother us. The room was very clean. Two persons get breakfast coupons every morning at Mama's eatery three doors down the street. There were about ten different dishes to choose from. The service was fast and the breakfast was ok. The subway was approx. 5 minutes away. The hotel itself was located at Mulberry street, which is a very quiet street across from Columbus park. We payed $1533 for 5 nights (2 persons). Well spent money!!! We would all love to go back to Hotel Mulberry!

My husband and I spent two nights here in September, staying on the second floor in a room with two queen beds. The room was large for Manhattan and spotlessly clean. Though comfortable, the beds were the highest we've seen in our travels and require a bit of effort to access for a short person. Amenities included a flat-screen TV, safe, iron and ironing board and excellent air conditioning.

The good-sized bathroom held a tub with shower, Fusion bath products, and a sink with built-in shelves underneath that provided handy storage.

Recently renovated, the narrow hotel has only a few rooms per floor. We could hear other guests when they were in the hallway but once inside their rooms, all was quiet. Apparently our room required a large step between the entry and the bedroom to be renovated successfully and the step is definitely a hazard. The management recognizes this and has placed a white reflector strip on the edge of the step along with orange signs on the wall by the step that display black lettering, warning to step down or to step up. A night light illuminates the problem. We found this area of the room to be a bit disconcerting and it jarred with the otherwise soothing decor.

Our room overlooked a park, where Chinese practiced Tai Chi each morning. It also overlooked Mulberry Street and the hotel's illuminated sign. Even with the curtains drawn, the light from the sign prevented the room from being as dark as we would have preferred for a good night's sleep. The street only received light traffic during our stay, so there was minimal vehicular noise.

Every staff member we talked with at Reception proved to be friendly and helpful. A computer sits in the small lobby area for the free use of guests and there is free coffee and tea. Be prepared for a short wait to use the computer in early morning and early evening.

Each morning, we got breakfast vouchers at Reception to use at Mama's, about a 30-second walk down the street. We found the food to be quite basic, with choices that included pancakes and omelettes. Mama's served the meals on paper plates with plastic utensils.

This hotel is not in the middle of major tourist attractions (but the nearby subway allows easy access to these), so staying here gives the opportunity to mingle with local residents on the streets. Fruit and vegetable vendors set up stands each day on the sidewalks and it was fun to look at the produce. Little Italy is just a block away and the fairly new and very interesting Museum of Chinese in America is nearby.

Downsides to the location for some potential guests may be the string of funeral parlors just beyond the hotel on Mulberry Street and the odor along the street when garbage bags have been placed curbside for pickup.

I would certainly return to this hotel and recommend it to anyone who would like to stay at a nice hotel, off the beaten tourist track in NYC.
