central location

This place was perfect for us. We didn't want to spend a lot of money. The room was clean, the bed was super comfy. Slept great. And we were walking distance from Lombardi's (best pizza ever), Vanessa's dumplings (4 for $1), gelato in Little Italy, Doughnut Plant, and even Katz Deli for the best Pastrami sandwich I've ever eaten. We were in town for a show at the Public Theater which was also walking distance away. And we took the plunge and walked to Chelsea Market one day (2 miles away). On full stomachs we took the subway home. Google maps makes it so easy to get around on public transit.

Thanks giving stay

We went to attend a family event in Chinatown on the thanksgiving day, when all the hotels nearby were full and expensive. This one was of great value compared to others at this special day. But if it were during a low season, the price might be too high. Overall very good experience, nice and decent hotel room within the Chinatown area.

My experience at Best Wester Bowery

Access is complicated from the present entrance. Staff cordial, kind and very helpful. Room acceptable but small and old Bed not plushy or supper comfortable. For the money (aprox. $200) not a bargain

good week overall

the hotel staff were great, the breakfast was great and the rooms were clean. It was close to the subway and easy to get around. The internet was poor in the mornings and I had one cool shower. I would stay again.

A relative good hotel

The best thing about the hotel is its location, which is only 3 minutes walking from the train (subway) station. The B-D line in this station would take you to most of the attraction sites (shopping centers on 34rd street, 42nd street, Times Square, Central Park, etc). It will also take 7-10 mins walking to Soho, where you can find quite some fashion stores as well. However, if you really want to be in the center and can walk to the fashion districts, I'd not recommend this hotel. You can book another in mid-town for $25/night more (I used to book one and then cancelled because my friend recommend to stay in Chinatown). The 2nd best thing about the hotel is the bathroom. It's clean, water is hot, strong and the bath space is quite roomy. At the end of the day, I think a good shower is what you really really need. The bed is quite comfortable, I could get some really good sleep here. Overall, I do not really have any complains. I did not need any help from the staff but I saw them helping other guests quite enthusiastically.

If you like to try some Asian/Vietnamese food, the Nam Son restaurant nearby is a really good one. If you want to go shopping, use the train station to get to 34rd street (Macys, Victoria Secret, Gap, etc) and then 42nd street (Zara, H&M, BCBG, and other department stores).
