Hotel is well located in Chinatown. Staff is friendly and helpful. You get what you pay for though, and the cheap rooms are VERY small, and completely without privacy, since you can hear everything your neighbors do and say all the time.

The front desk staff is nice enough, but the hotel itself? Oh my God! First of all, not the cleanest place you'll ever stay at. It was obvious to me upon my arrival in my room that the sheets and pillow cases had not been cleaned since the previous guests. Then, they have a SERIOUS bedbug problem!!! I was fell...

We found bedbug, one of us was stung many times ! The walls are like paper sheets. We were 4, and we asked for a double key: impossible ! One advice: don't choose this place even if it's cheap, especially in this location of Manhattan !

I stayed there for 4 nights on september 2012, but doesnt seem to have changed (advertising surely hasn't). No words to describe this. To begin with, it's a hostel, and not a hotel. The pictures are truly deceiving. I'm 1.82 m tall and when i laid on that tiny bed, i had my head in one wall, my feet in...

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.

“It would be a good idea to hang some shelves or at least some hooks so you can hang your towels up to dry. Liquid soap and toilet paper would be nice in the bathrooms.”
