Great Location in Chinatown NYC

Posted Oct 5, 2017
Pros: Very Clean. Good Location close to Subway.
Cons: Seriously... For a Best Western, this hotel was excellent
Location: New York's Chinatown is awesome. It smells and is dirty, but that adds to the experience. With the subway nearby, it is easy to go up to Times Square
The location of the Best Western Bowery Hanbee Hotel is located on the eastern edge of Chinatown. One block away from the Metro. Our room was recently renovated and kept extremely clean. For New York City, the room was very large.

Excellent choice of hotel in NY city.

Posted Sep 24, 2017
Pros: The L-shaped rooms have both a bed area and a dining/lounge area, allowing plenty of space for comfortable relaxation, with all necessary facilities.
Location: The location is in the NY Chinatown and a couple of blocks from Little Italy; plenty of good restaurants. Also within walking distance of many sites.
Very happy to recommend the Best Western Bowery Hanbee hotel both for its location and for the excellent service from the staff there. You can walk to Brooklyn bridge, the 9/11 memorial, Greenwich village, the HighLine and to downtown Manhattan. Hotel offer a very good breakfast with a terrace for sitting out.

Room cleaned very well by maids and looked neat & clean. Shower curtain smelled like mold. This smell permeated the entire room.

great complimentary breakfast

Posted Sep 15, 2017
Pros: if you see above, this will become clear to you. nice complmentary breakfast, helpful staff, clean room.
Location: chinatown, little italy..what is left of manhattan's little italy,,,mulberry street. real good whole foods at christie/houston(not far from hotel).
like i say, very good complimentary breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs(moist, just like i like them), sausage, waffles if you wanted, coffee, yogurt. all you can eat. the staff were professional, helpful, helped me get a print out of my boarding pass for return flight. the room was clean. only slight drawback was it was a bit noisy, being in chinatown. still, i had a great time.

Noisy Aircon Blower. No ventilation in toilet !

Posted Sep 13, 2017
The aircon is really irritating coming On and Off the whole night. The toilet has no ventilation fan and window has to be opened resulting in more noise from the aircon compressors outside!. Not acceptable for a 3 Star hotel.

This is the place to at the Bowery

Posted Sep 9, 2017
First impression at street level was questionable. From that point forward we couldn't have asked for more. The staff, especially Jeff at the check-in were great. Went out of their way to help, even the housekeeping staff. The room was modern, the complimentary breakfast was great. Will be go-to hotel in future.

Great Place!

Posted Sep 8, 2017
I booked through Expedia and when I got there they had me on the main floor which was the best floor to be on. The breakfast was so good! I would recommend this hotel to anyone and we will be back!

Good value hotel.

Posted Sep 3, 2017
Pros: Price, location and staff.
Cons: Better noise insulation between rooms.
Location: Very busy street heavily influenced by Chinatown and Little Italy. Subway within easy reach, but Downtown is walkable for able individuals.
Good hotel based on price alone. Location good for downtown but be prepared to use public transport or long walks for the main NY attractions midtown e.g. Empire State, Rockefeller, Times Square etc. Staff were very pleasant and informed regarding local knowledge. Expect some noise not only from the busy street traffic, but also poor noise insulation within hotel. No bar in hotel but plenty of places round about for drinks and food. Plan on at least 1.5 hours for transfer times due to traffic.
