Affordable, clean value downtown

Posted Oct 23, 2014
Great staff, clean rooms. Second floor location is noisy due to front desk and breakfast area and clean staff area. This should be stated when checking in. I asked for a non-second floor location when booking as I had read about this problem on TripAdvisor. You will hear beginning about 4:30am the staff coming in, the microwave going off (beep, beep, beep) and breakfast machinations get very active around 7am. Location is central though getting a cab is challenging. Staff is professional, helpful and friendly. Hotel is clean and well kept after.

Chinatown Hotel

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: Nice, clean- a little warm as temperature was unseasonably warm.
Location: Close to many attractions in NYC. Quick commute to Times Square and Grand Central as well.
I was attending a short class at New York University. Very convenient to get there by subway. Plenty of restaurant options in area. Would stay there again.

Fabulous Location - close to everything

Posted Oct 19, 2014
Pros: Everything! The staff are excellent and go out of their way to ensure your stay is a happy experience.
Cons: The hotel is looking tired. It needs refurbishing, painting and new carpet. It could be "funked up".
Location: Little Italy is on the doorstep with abundant cafes/bars/restaurants. Walk over Manhatten Bridge 5 mins.walk away. Grenwich Village 20mins walk away.
We've stayed at this hotel the last 3 times we've been to New York because it has everything we want. It's very clean, it's got a great location, friendly helpful staff, a big breakfast and we've always had a good room with a skyline view of Manhatten. We've always been very happy staying here. It's an historic area so it's within walking distance of lots of attractions, including the neighbourhoods of Grenwich Village. Staying at the Bowery Hanabee on the doorstep of iconic Little Italy gives us the experience of living in a New York neighbourhood.

Very nicely located. Close to subway.

Posted Sep 26, 2014
Pros: Location, cleanliness, and breakfast. The staff was always very helpful and pleasant!
Location: Plenty of things to do. Little Italy was close for some great italian food. I always enjoy canal street and finding bargains!
We knew that we were on the edge of Chinatown. Was a bit of a shock when we got off the subway, but had no problems. The hotel was only a block and a half from the subway, very handy!! We would get back to the hotel some evenings around 12 midnight and had no concerns of safety!

Posted Sep 3, 2014
First of all great location, nice clean and fairly new hotel. Staff is very helpful and I can´t really say anything negative about my experience. I´ve stayed there twice now and both times it was great.

A pleasant surprise, an actual descent hotel in NY

Posted Aug 17, 2014
Pros: Size of the rooms, comfort of the beds, central location in lower Manhattan, Free WIFI and Breakfast, you must try the waffles' machine
Cons: The windows could be doubled in order to reduce the external noise
Location: Central location in China Town and Little Italy, proximity to a large number of Chinese massage venues of really good quality and techniques
Best Western Bowery Hanbee is located in China town at a walking distance from Little Italy. Excellent location if you want to discover lower Manhattan and China town. The hotel is very nice, comfortable, and the rooms are among the biggest I have seen in NY after staying in 4 different hotels. As I was saying, very centrally located if you want to explore the south end of Manhattan, at a walking distance of many attractions such as Ground Zero (Liberty Tower, and 9/11 museum). Broadway street and Wall street are a 15min walk away. Around the hotel are a number of recommended Chinese and Asian restaurants, and at 5 to 10 min walks, many Italian restaurants. The staff of the hotel are nice and welcoming. The Free WIFI and Breakfast are definitely a plus as most hotels in NY offer them at a charge.
