Simply avoid it... The attached pictures show the stained bed sheets and pillows we were provided. You can also observe the humidity stains present on the ceiling which due to mold are a significant health risk. The bathrooms were abysmal and the hotel hall had a cleaning cart filled with cigarettes as it was apparently being used as an ashtray...

My friend and I stayed here for two nights and had one of the worst experiences that we ever could have. The room was barely the size of a closet and it was dingy. The light wouldn't work at first, we had to flip the switch on and off and least 10 times to get the light to turn on....

Had to stay here for 1 night. Was hot and sweaty when I arrived, and wanted a shower and head to bed. Room was a glorified, converted wardrobe, with just enough room for a bed and that's it. Went to use the communal toilet, which was blocked, so had to to the business in the shower. Just as well I...

This was the most discusting closet of a room I have ever stayed in. No a/c or even a fan. I proped the window open with a water bottle.Not worth $20.00, never mind the $150.00. You share a bathroom with everyone on that floor. The toilet was broken have the time. You have to walk up five flights of stairs.NO...

Before booking for this hotel, I've spent a lot of time reading all these reviews saying ''Unclean, loudy, hellish hostel'' but I had no other choice, being only 19 years old. We went there knowing it wouldn't been paradise and we were very surprise. It was clean, the room was just fine. The walls were indeed thin, but if your...

Room looked like closet. You have bed and TV and that's it and it was not very clean. My suitcase barely fit in the room. Disaster! I will never return here again. The only good thing was that the clerk was very nice.

For being centrally located it is a great deal. There are no elevators or personal restrooms but the linens are clean the staff is very nice and helpful. The rooms are small but efficient. I will definitely come here next time I stay in New York.

My friend and I have been travelling all over the world staying in countless budget hostels and hotels so are used to and expect poor quality rooms. This 'hotel' is by far the worst hotel I have ever stepped foot in in my life. We were in a 'twin room' and it was literally a room with a bed, barely...

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.
