“Great for the price”
Reviewed 8 June 2012

came to nyc for a short business visit. I chose the hotel in order to save money to spend on nice meals and sight seeing. the room I booked was funny since it looks like a closet. Literally a bed inside a closet , however it was well ventilated clean no bed bugs brand new mattress. clean linnen. Overall ok. You can hear everyhing going on on rooms around you ( snoring, sounds occuring during intercourse, phone conversations, foot steps) So it's good only for sleeping after a long day.,.
Shared bathrooms are not good. For the price in NYC with absence of bed bugs in my room I think it is a bargain.

You get: basic room with one English chanell on tv, great location in china town , free wifi and excellent rate.

It is also small, dirty and a walk up.

Clean enough and comfortable enough for the price. We had to ask for extra and clean towels each night, but we didnt care. Room was very small, the tv only got a few channels in Chinese, but we didn't care. The bed may have been a bit firm than we are used to, but we spent our four days there exploring The City so much that we were too tired to care. They keep a big samovar of hot water in the lobby so I was able to make my morning tea each morning which made the hotel worth three times what we paid!

This place is a great place to hang your hat for a low price. Also, they were kind enough to let us stow our luggage between check out and the time our bus left.

Booked through Booking.com. 100$ a night. On a picture it showed 2 beds in a room. when we checked in, we were shocked! Worst place in my life (I travel a lot). One (!) small bed? room size is just about size of a bed. Walls are made of cartoon on etc....
Dont even think to save money and stay there - you will regred it for the rest of your life

Room Tip: Dont book here

It's cheap and in a good location for china town, little Italy and Canal St but it could be better.

There is no lift but no offer to carry bags - didn't bother us but if you struggle with heavy objects it wouldn't suit you.

Also the rooms are very small but have everything you need. I would recommend a shelf up in the bathroom for guest's toiletries and make sure towels and throws don't have holes in ( likes ours did ).

The only good point was the location, but it smelled so bad around there.
You can hear people snoring next room. There was no window. We had to share the bathroom and it was not clean. They didn't have the elevator, so it was really hard to bring the big baggage to upstairs. When we asked the staff to bring up the baggage, they told us to pay for that. The room was really small. We even couldn't open the baggage on the floor, so we had to opened it on the bed. The bed was not confortable at all. The bed cover was too small for the bed. I strongly recommend not to stay there.

As the previous reviewer wrote, yes, the bed is hard, no window, tiny room, however - if you plan to pretty much only sleep in your room, this is an excellent choice. Excellent Chinatown/Little Italy location. Close to great shopping on Canal/Broadway. Easy subway access to all other points!
Friendly staff. Secure main entrance. Free WiFi!
Read over other reviews with interest both before and after - old buildings should not be confused with dirty. This was quite clean.
