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).

convenient and comfortable

The hotel was within close proximity to all I was doing in New York, very convenient. And the staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend to a friend, nothing fancy but a comfortable stay.

Hot&Happening for business and fun

A great place! Well connected with the rest of Manhattan by metro, and a great neighborhood for the days I was not working. A mix of Chinatown, little Italy and Hot Lower Manhattan: restaurants, bars, shops, bustling street-life. Rooms are larger than average in NY and staff is so friendly and helpful that they're on course for whatever prize there is for great hospitality. Breakfast is simple, for more sophisticated stuff go to Little Italy. One suggestion: change internet provider - surfing was sometimes slow and sometimes interrupted.

Impressed with hospitality and room size at the Bowery Hanbee

I and three of my friends recently stayed at the Best Western Bowery Hanbee Hotel and were extremely impressed with the excellent hospitality given by the staff and the large size of the guest rooms....which is, unfortunately, not common in NYC. The distance from the subway is very convenient as well. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants an affordable place to stay in Manhattan!

Will be staying here for the future NYC Trips

This is our 5th NY trip in 3 months, will be staying here from now on based on the following reasons. 1. Staff exceptionally friendly and catered to our neeeds (even had a problem and staff was apologetic and comforting) 2. Location is ideal for shopping and transportation (located walking distance from SOHO shopping, and lots of good food near by there and Chinatown) 3. Located 1 block away from subway station 4. Located in the heart of Chinatown- get a real feel for culture! 5. complimentary breakfast was okay, but still nice to have! 6. Rooms are clean and remodeled, contemporary looking

nice hotel, but far downtown

The hotel was great, staff was courteous, and everything could be reached via the metro. I didn't like that it didn't have a pool, and had these weird little bugs flying around in the shower all the time (harmless) but yeah. Either way it was a great stay.

The metro nearest the hotel, take a right directly out of the hotel and two blocks away, gets you uptown and to the Yankee stadium fast! And cheap.

Good, clean and roomy

For New York, this was a very nice room. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Street noise at night from work on the streets was an issue.

we will definitely go back again

Fantastic location. In the middle of Chinatown and edge of Little Italy, so plethora of great/cheap places to eat. A block away from the B/D subway line. Really friendly and helpful staff. Our room was a bit noisy from Bowery St. traffic, so bring earplugs if that would bother you. A great find!
