Close to a subway. The subway station next to the hotel.
Clean beds and updated bathrooms for an great price. Hotel 91 is less than 5 minutes from a subway station (and be sure to get coffee at the "12 corners" coffee shop on the way.) All in all, Hotel 91 was exactly what we needed: an inexpensive but comfortable place to recharge as we explored NYC. The neighborhood is not very central, so it is ideal if you are looking to have a place to sleep and leave your bags as you are visiting the city. Don't plan to come back to your room and change before dinner, though.
The value for the money Kinda in a depressed area
Best location middle of Chinatown so I had access to restaurants in minutes of walk. Cab fare to 34th street wasn't to bad since the close distance. The sound from the train right outside of my room, but that's all big city are like. We are young so we adjusted to the noise after the first night.
Clean with a large bathroom Coffee service was terrible, in Chinatown
On this trip I just needed a bed to sleep on, and a shower & toilet to use, and Hotel 91 definitely met those needs. While not the fanciest of places, or the most elegant decor, but the staff were very friendly and helpful, the bed was quite comfortable, and the plumbing was all in good working order. The room and public areas were all clean, too. The hot water took a little long to get hot, but I also blame that on the weather - had it not been ~5 - 10 degrees outside, I wouldn't have been as desperate for a properly hot shower. The room door also felt a bit flimsy, but it kept the sound and cold out so that's more of a "feeling" thing than an actual complaint.
Reasonably clean. Very noisy with trains passing by every 5 minutes. Bad views from the window. Old furniture. Poor heating in rooms. Tiny desk. TV remote does not work.
Wifi was spotty at best. Several times I needed to go to the reception desk and ask them to reset it. Sometimes they told me to just use it in the lobby. One evening, the desk clerk told me to wait until morning. When I said that two other desk clerks had reset the wifi on previous days he rudely expressed skepticism and demanded their names. When I obviously did not have their names he demanded precise descriptions of them. Even for New York, the Kayak-discounted price of this hotel was far too high for the value received. I have stayed in New York many times and will never stay at Hotel 91 again.
subway accessible, hotel room was tidy, no complaints
No problems at all good location had a great stay, reception was helpful great price a lot of good food close by. Got to do alot of shopping only thing was parking was far away but its New York what can you really expect. Thank you.
Located in a fun and interesting neighborhood, clean room and friendly reception. Walls a little thin - didn't notice other rooms but could hear the outside pretty well.
Great neighbourhood, a window that can de opened, nice personnel, all very comfortable. New York is expensive, so I found this hotel expensive as well for what you get.
The hotel location is walking distance to Little Italy and China Town. The price you pay versus the quality you get is shocking, but this is NYC where prices are high. It felt extremely budget.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was well equipped but could have been cleaner. Near subway. Not luxury but fine for a few nights. Chinatown offered a different feel for the city than I've had in other, more commercial areas. Not for everyone but I liked it fine. Housekeeping wad lacking, it was clean but found things left behind, no washcloths left either morning. Little stuff but annoying.
Excellent choice if you are lloking for location, cordiality, low rate. Rooms are clean: towels are changed daily, bed sheets and pilows smells very clean. Location is fantastic if you like Soho and Chinatown. Subway (d and b lines) 3 minutes from hotel door. The sorroundings are safe as there are always people walking around. But it is very quiet, except for when the people come out from the nght club located on the side street.
It is a simple hotel. The location is fine: just around the corner of Littel Italy and China Town. I asked for two separate beds, but they forgot that. So we had to change rooms and got the separate beds after two nights in a single bed(kingsize)
Clean, comfortable, friendly hotel in an excellent location No hot water the first day but OK after that.
I was very pleased with the TV!! and it has many programs in TV. There was not an opner in my room. But,I can borrow the opner in the front desk , so, it's no problem!
The location is very good. The hotel is situated near various neighborhoods of interest. There are many subway stations nearby as well. The room seemed to be well used. Although the television and linen appeared to be relatively new, the rest of the room was worn down. Wooden headboards were chipped. The desk chair and chest of drawers were both losing paint from apparent use.
Nice area, clean rooms, silence, very nice ladies at the reception We did not expect much of the breakfast, as it is included in the price, but you can do much better...
Staff is very pleasant. They help you with everything.
Friendly staff, clean rooms, easy access by subway
Spotless, comfortable room. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Great location in the buzzing heart of Chinatown. Breakfast arrangements a bit scrappy at busy times.
The room was ok in general but very old bed and basic curtain shower. Old noisy AC with dial. Extreme noisy all night.
The quoted price for occupancy at the hotel did not show the four separate tax charges added at checkout. I would have preferred to know exactly how much I would be charged at the time of booking.
We did appreciate the location, the wooden floor of our room and the breakfast included in our night rate. The noise coming from the street, no noise insulation, I think they should implement that a lot especuially for the rooms onto Bowery street and Grand Street.I think the linens (both bathroom and bed) should be cleaned much better, while the cleaning of the room was great!
The staff at this hotel are so friendly. Location is convenient across the street from a train line and a few blocks from little Italy. The hotel literally stinks. The room smelled so bad like regurgitated curry that we asked to switch. The second room smelled as well but not as bad, only in the bathroom. I think it must be the smell in the sewer pipes or something. Had to leave the bathroom door closed the entire trip so our clothes didn't smell like sewage.
The front desk staff are great! Small hotel but really cosy, clean and they know you by name! How warm is that?! The bed is so heavenly that I overslept all the time. The helpful hotel staff just makes my stay so memorable and I felt well taken care of though it was my 1st time in NYC. I wish there were security guards at the lobby as this is a smoke-free hotel thus I had to battle the cold winds and smoke just right outside the hotel in the public area but Chinatown is dead town in the evenings and it can be sketchy and dangerous in Bowery at night. Security could have been better so that hotel guests may feel more assured or no strangers gate-crashing the ground floor of the hotel whilst the actual lobby is on the 2nd floor.
peace and quiet
Good design choices... nice bathroom (very Japanese)... simple, very comfortable, excellent bed/bedding. Highly polished wood floor a wonderful touch (no yukky wall-to-wall.) For this price ... it doesn't get any better. Highest recommendation for a budget hotel.
The staff was friendly and it was relatively clean. Masking tape held tiles to the walls in the bathroom. The coffee machine was old and dirty. The room wouldn't stay warm. The showers could also use a redesign. Because they are open, water splashes all over the bathroom floor.
The room size was goI'd especially for NYC. Hotel is new which is a bonus.elevators are fast. Close walk to little Italy and lower east side bars. Grand street subway is only a few blocks away. The bathroom shower gets everything wet! Poor design. Rooftop bar has a $50 minimum per person to go on the patio. Lame! We are hotel guests we shouldn't be restricted if we just wanna go for one drink. No view in lower rooms.
Great location in the middle of Chinatown with good walking access to most of the hot spots in the LES. No complaints.
Central location. Also near a park for residents, good also for visitors. Delux room size,a bit on the small size. Bathroom shower facilities, a bit stiff to turn on. Need force and the shower will splash on you.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
the hotel was located in China town, which is why we chose it. We love the huge variety of food in that area of Manhattan, and the delicious, cheap food options. The room itself wasn't huge, but it's Manhattan, you should expect that. they should really reconsider their showers. I was't terribly bothered by the fact that water would run out onto the floor, but we were just keeping towels on the floor and letting room service change them daily. It's wasteful, though.

Very convinced for me Too expensive for me
The room was wonderful. Small in square footage, but an entire wall of floor to ceiling windows created an exceptional 'sense of place' overlooking downtown NYC. The bathroom was relatively large. The AC worked well. The location was great! We would have liked more than one chair in the room. The rooftop bar was 'off limits' unless we were willing to pay $50 cover in advanceâ€¦it was a curious situation. The rooftop bar was one of the 4-star amenities that we looked forward to accessing
The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. They went out of their way to help me get what I wanted, whether it was a quiet room (which I had) or to repair a lightbulb (which they did within 15 minutes of my request). The yoghurt parfait had canned fruit and very little granola. It needs an upgrade.
The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. Location was conveniently close to subways and had great selection of restaurants nearby. Fire alarm rang three times in the middle of the night (1am) and ruined a good nights sleep for me when I had to get up early for work. Was not happy about that. No explanation was made, just a 'false alarm'.
Noisy, poor breakfast, small room, connecting room (single door between the rooms) generating excessively close with neighbors - you share their conversation, their shower, their TV ...
location was great. Lousy breakfast full with cheap stuff. Bed had a showercurtain, really uncomfortable. We asked for a quiet room but were placed across the elevators.. too bad.
Clean Considering NY prices- good value for the money Very close to subway station Comfy Continental Breakfast Very small room
We stayed for five nights in september-09 at Comfort Inn Manhattan Bridge. The service was ok, Breakfast meny was very american with waffles and bagels, but we liked it. The everyday cleaning was without any complains. Very comfortable beds. The hotel is newly renovated so everything was very clean and fresh (includning the bathroom). The location of the hotel was ok, but it's almost in Chinatown, so you have to walk 10-15 minutes to get out of that area. The staff on the hotel could be a little more serviceminded.
Perfect localization: close to B, D and 4,5,6 trains. Centre of Chinatown with it's unique climat. Close to Soho, Noho etc. Room small but quite comfy. Cleaned every day. Nice and helpful staff. Free wifi and access to computers/printers. Excellent value for money. Breakfasts - better go to the nearest Starbucks.
Impressed nothing..it was worth for money i paid though a bit expensive
The rooms were clean and the staff was helpful. The breakfast area was small, but usually enough. The area (Chinatown) was ok, but maybe a bit too crowded in the day and too deserted at night.
Excellent service, the staff was friendly.The room and bathroom was excellent. The bed was extremely comfortable and the area was convenient for china town, greenwich village, financial trade centre, soho, little italy, I walked to all those places. Car ride away from mid town. Excellent area. As a solo lady from london it was a great experience. The hotel will provide with a car if needed. The breakfast room, no joke very small. need a bigger area! People went back to there rooms because it was too small very disappointing.
Clean and cosy room with all appropriate amenities, free wi-fi, location close to all attractions of lower Manhattan. One of the best prices for such a hotel in Manhattan. Location in th heart of Chinatown is probably not the thing you expect from staying in NYC.
Excellent price for New York, especially for a new, modern hotel. The location, but acceptable for the lower price paid.
Comfortable and decent sized rooms. Hotel located in proximity of many attractions in NY. Staff helpful. Lack of non-ethnic supermarkets in the area.
I feel this is a bad experience to me The water pressure for shower is very bad the water seems dripping and slow motion when I called the front desk. They told me a stupid excuse Because I am 11/ fl. So the water usually slow at all. And they may be change the shower head after I check out. They never think should change another room for me. Even I feel it is not comfortable Their name is comfort inn and it is not
location is quite good since it is close to subway. the staff attitude particular the lady (I believe she may be the owner or the senior manager). One morning I met her in the restaurant for breakfast. She warned me I cannot use the paper for put bread in the microoven. In fact, there is no paper plate in the restaurant but it is not the main point. Main point is her manner. Then, she left the restaurant and turn off the light. Oh...my god. I am still in the restaurant and I am the customer. I do not know reason since it is my second time to meet this lady...
was really easy to find the bed was like sleeping on a plank of wood, the rooms were very small
Cheaper than many other hotels, croissants and tea included, good tv, bathroom fairly clean Bedsheets quite grubby-looking, bed very hard, shower quite painful, wallpaper rather interesting...
All of New York, nothing about the hotel! Everything I didn't like
I already knew the hotel. It's very well located (Lower East side, close to bars, clubs and music venues), clean and recently renovated, and well-priced with regards to other hotels in Manhattan. No remarks here because for that rate one really cannot expect a whole lot of luxury.
Cleaness ,wifi Noisy , no shower had to go to another room for shower
Good veiw)) Housekeeper didt change towels
Hotel was very clean and staff polite and always ready to help. I liked private bathroom, good bed and TV. They even provided small breakfast. We appriciated that hotel was next to the Brooklyn bridge cause it was very easy to find it:) /Chinatown is quite chaotic/.Great place for everybody who loves chinese cuisine. The smell of food from Chinatown. No Starbucks close to hotel.Subway on the bridge.
next to Chinatown and to places we wanted to visit the guy at the reception didn't seem too receptive....felt we were disturbing him when we had a question to ask him
Cheapest place in the city! Especially if you are coming to New York to be out on the town, not stuck in a hotel room! You definitely get what you pay for: 5 story walk up with no elevator can leave you winded, especially with luggage. Rooms so tiny that you cannot open the door because the bed is in the way. 2 bathrooms on a floor with 15+ rooms that could hold 2 people each? You do the math, but no matter how you cut it = long bathroom wait times. Also, bathroom cleanliness is nonexistent. When I finally got in, the floor was soaked, the toilet wouldn't flush, and it was full of someone's vomit! Uuugh! Also, I was eaten alive by some sort of insects...my arms, legs, face...I don't know if they are bed bugs, fleas, mosquitoes? Something that left me covered in itchy wealts. So, the place is a steal for the location and price...just know what you are getting yourself into!
Friendly staff, great location, unbeatable price! It is a non smoking hotel, however someone was smoking and the smell wafted into our room.
It was Really Bad The Room is super tiny didnt like it at all. POOR
Nothing. The room is very small with a grate ceiling that makes the room noisy. There is one shared bathroom on each floor and the rooms are small and very unkept.
There was a discount for breakfast at a nearby restaurant, "Elevated" which had generous servings of western breakfast. The location, in Chinatown, was less than a mile from where we went to a conference, so that is central to our decision. There was no elevator so we had to climb 4 stories up. No refrigerator or coffee meant we were unable to keep extra food from supper and wait for breakfast for coffee.
The hotel looks more like a whore house, the rooms are very small and you can hear the people in the other rooms, se they will hear you as well. The bathrooms are disgusting I won't recommend this "hotel" to any one.
Was totaly disaster, DIRTY DIRTY DIRTY!!!!!!!!
Bed bugs! Also, filthy.
Great Location! Right in Chinatown! VERY cheap, but you get what you pay for... TINY rooms, and you have to share a bathroom with other guests.
i got to help out a friend in need. This place was just bad. Bed beds. Public washroom. No tv. No windows. Rude staff. Dirty. Do not book a room here unless it's your last choice and you're totally broke. I could have pocketed the cash and gotten better sleep in my car and cleaner with a packet of baby wipes. The staff was so rude I think they may have been on work release from jail. I didn't even want to shower it was so gross. I think the rest of the hotel guests may have been on meth they seemed content. For $100.00 bucks it was not money well spent. STAY AWAY.
room as cheap They put me in a cheaper room (that i didn't reserve) and charged me for the room I booked. they filled up all the rooms so i was unable to switch.
Just position and price are good. clean in room and very very small
Nothing no elevator On constructing For one sentence, This is not a HOTEL Backpackers is better than this
The bed was horribly uncomfortable, creaked everytime you moved. Staff, unfriendly n unhelpful Bad
It wasn't that bad. Don't expect the Ritz, its a hostel. They cleaned it everyday and there weren't bugs. It's a small room, but it's a single. It is loud and bright but earplugs and eyemask worked fine. They keep the windows open so it can get drafty but keeps it from getting too smelly. There are shared bathrooms but aside from early in morning it was never a problem. And there is NO elevator so your legs get a workout. But staff was great, at $44 a night for 5 nights there's not a cheaper way to stay in Manhattan, you're in heart of Chinatown and Little Italy, lots of culture and super cheap shopping. I'd stay there again.
Location Gross bathrooms with collapsing ceilings, loud and dumb neighbors, too bright to sleep, if the A/C goes out you'll basically suffocate.
What an unusual place! You walk up four long flights, get a bright and clean though windowless cell, find acceptable bathrooms down the hall, and wonder if it's a good idea. The room has tiny cabinet, light, plugs, mattress, sheets, blanket, pillow, trashcan. You were given soap and shower slippers. The floor is locked and your room is locked. Hardware screen for a ceiling to make the HVAC common to all 80 cells and it works well. A number of students with backpacks giving it a hostel feel, though the lower floors have the same design though much older and occupied by local Chinese. Apparently the design is a tenament style housing for single men. Very interesting. Unusual value for Manhattan. Safe. Don't go for the view.
Proximity to china town It's worst Hotel which I have come across in my life and it's zero return for money. The rooms were extremely small with roof top open, you cannot speak to anyone being in room. Bathrooms were extremely dirty and wet and no soaps, showers were extremely slow. No Toilet papers, common bathrooms are many but all are occupied cause they have 55 rooms on same floor. Which are shared by everyone. I will never recommend an individual for this room. But the guy at reception was very good. Around the street I came across two guys who have done the booking for same Hotel but at mid-night 2:30 am they were denied room as their Room was given to someone else. So overall extremely poor hotel, without any facilities, open roofs (there's iron mesh which is roof of some 55 rooms) but can be good for students who cannot afford more money from china:-)
The location was nice. Easy access to Subway and walkable to China Town and Little Italy. The price was affordable for staying in Manhattan. The hotel provided towels, shampoo, travel tooth brush and tooth paste. The bathrooms are shared but generally we didmt have to wait long for an opening. Also they are spacious and cleaned daily. This is a decent place if you are traveling alone and just looking for a cheap please to sleep. The room was very small (6'x9'). The mattress springs were squeaky and uncomfortable. There sheets and comforter were stained. Only on of the outlets worked. The room had a small fan but NO WINDOW and very little room to move around as the double bed took up most of the space. All that said our biggest complaint was the noise. There is no sound insulation. We were in a room in the middle of the hallway and we could hear talking from adjacent rooms, all of the movement in the hallway, doors opening and closing and even street noise (sirens, large trucks). If you are a light sleeper this is definitely not the place for you.
You get exactly what you pay for, a very safe, clean and very, very small room about 4 feet wide and 6 feet long. But that is exactly what I wanted, plus an internet connected computer at the end of the hall. Also very, very quiet. Stairway was a bit dirty and there was no elevator up to 5th floor.
Nothing at all. Single thin mattress on wood platform. Room in 6' wide with no ceiling, just chicken wire. Three common bathrooms per floor are disgusting. Rotting ceilings in number of areas. No elevator. Drug addicts and hookers walking round. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!'
The proximity of Hotel Mulberry to some of New York's great neighbourhoods and the fantastic balcony made it a fantastic place to finish our adventure in New York. Staff were very helpful and accomodating for any requests we made.
Easy check in and check out, rooms were very nice and comfortable. The WIFI did not work the whole entire time I was there, called desk they told us that they had reset it still never worked after that
The beds were amazingly comfy, rooms were clean, good position near the main street. Lovely view of park. Would definately return.
Beautiful rooms, ensuite and recently refurbished. Excellent sevice. Central location in Manhattan. Good value for money compared with other hotels in New York. Would have liked the choice of a lighter breakfast. I didn't always want eggs, pancakes or french toast. Cereal, toast or just fruit and yoghourt would have been nice some days. Didn't want sweet french toast, but sugar on everything!
near subway, nice rooms wifi was not great.
the breakfast and the comfort of the room
The room is really big and cozy
Loved being steps away from Little Italy and Chinatown. Loved Columbus Park directly across the street and seemingly 100s of amazing restaurants all within 2 blocks.
Friendly staff, quiet (in front of a park), nice city view if on the right side. Easily walkable to everywhere. Rooms are not very sound proof. We were lucky as there was minimal movement on our floor, but sound carried a lot into the room. Could be the walls or the metal door itself.
Easy access and close to Little Italy and Chinatown.
The location! The hotel is opposite the Columbus park. A little park; the whole day mostly Chinese people do their Tai-Chi. But also several different martial arts you can admire.Plus people playing cards, a children's playground.. very good atmosphere. The buzz outside of the regular very intensel NY airconditioning intallations
The hotel was very clean and the staff were helpful and patient. The free breakfast was well stocked and we had no problems with appliances in the room. There are even recommendations for places to eat and directions to various parts of new york on the website. Very good deal for the price. :) The only downside was the location which was above a market. If you don't like the smell of fish it might bother you, but it's not nearly as pungent once you get inside.
I'm a student and found the tariff to be reasonable and a great deal considering the proximity to downtown Manhattan. The location wasn't very good. I'm not sure if I'll choose this location again.
Beautiful small hotel with clean and modern rooms. From the window I could see the Manhattan bridge which adds to my down-east Manhattan experience. Personnel was helpful and kind, they provided excellent breakfast. There is an M15 bus station next to the hotel so it is easy to go downtown from there. Holiday Inn, please invest in the hotel to add noise-filtering windows to the rooms. I would suggest this hotel for visitors who already visited New York previously, as the surrounding does not reflect the overall landmark Manhattan really has. Overall I was satisfied with the hotel and thanks for the hospitality!
Everything was very good, nice and helpful people. Very clean. The location of the hotel has easy access to public transportation and is safe but the area smell bad and does not look very nice. Inside the hotel is very good and clean but outside is not. (Close to Chinatown)
Clean rooms, spacious bathroom. Popeye's on the lower level.
Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. The location was excellent, within a close walk to all of Manhattan's lower east side, and only a couple blocks from the subway. Our room had a great view of downtown and the Manhattan Bridge!
The view was amazing, hotel was clean and very modern and the staff was incredibly helpful. We were in town for a bike race and they even offered us an hour of entered stay for free so we could shower before driving home. The WiFi was a little unpredictable.
I was looking for a hotel in NYC within walking distance of the Lower East Side, and found this. It was one of the cheapest hotels that met that criterion, at $250 per night (not including tax, which brought it up to $290). The room was sufficiently large to be comfortable to move around in, and the bed was firm (which I like). Everything was clean enough. There is free internet and it's fast enough to use it for work. The person who checked me in was friendly and had been nice on the phone when I called to say I'd be checking in late. The person who checked me out was fine, but less friendly. I can't criticize the staff, though - they were fine. There is nothing in the hotel to enjoy. No lobby to sit in (i.e., there's the front desk and maybe a chair or two, but that's it), no exercise room as far as I can tell, no restaurant, nothing. And no coffee served in the morning, so you can use the coffee machine in the room (which I never do - no fresh milk for coffee makes it unpalatable) or you can walk for a mile to get somewhere to get coffee. So if you get up early (as I did, coming from France I was on a different time schedule), it's really kind of disappointing and difficult. While it was clean, the price wasn't low enough for me to consider it again. I'd rather pay an extra $50 per night and have a better location and overall better hotel facilities. (I might even be willing to pay $100 more for that - it was really that unpleasant.)
Nothing Bedbugs were everywhere. The sheets and pillow had died bedbug stains from where I guess people killed them. The clientele where loud and vulgar and since the ceiling is open you hear everything. Heard drug deals, somebody threatening to kill his woman and her new boyfriend, etc...
Nothing. I didnt like waking up with 25+ bed bug bites all over my body. Nor did i like throwing my clothing out due to the fact. As soon as i walked through the door i was offered to buy drugs in the hallway. The upstairs which i thought was a aingle room is back to back closets with a wooden plank and a dirty bug ridden mattress.
Absolutely nothing room was violation of building code, genuine hovel See above terrible filthy room. No ceiling could see light from hall at all times. Room was really a windowless cubicle could hear noise from management all night. So much black mold it was scary. Not a hotel, scary place
Nothing Everything, this place is disgusting, room was literally a closet right outside of front desk, it was so tiny, and stuffy, no windows, and we were subjected to the front desk guy yelling in chinese ALL night, bed is a piece of foam, shared bathroom. AWFUL!!!! Never seen something so terrible, every hostel has been nicer AND cheaper!!! It cost me $80 USD for this hell hole!! Slept fully clothed because it was so gross.
Good location; pleasant and helpful staff; lovely new building; very comfortable bed; small, but cozy room; very clean; free breakfast; would definitely stay again. Cost, but it's New York; It's expensive. Compared to other hotels of similar caliber, this option was quite affordable.
I like nothing at this place Giving me hard time for my room , when I was at the hotel , and after that I find out they double charged me , for the reservation I have already cancelled, and I call back they are not refound my money back, it's the worst place I have ever been
