“Good hotel, shame about the bed”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

We chose this hotel based on its price and the Comfort Inn brand. We have stayed at quite a few Comfort Inns across America, but this was the first one with a rock-hard bed. I actually woke up the next morning with a sore back. What didn't help was the plastic cover they put over the mattress. A tip: Take this off, and the bed gets slightly more comfortable. Aside from that, our stay was pretty good. We arrived at 7 in the morning and were told there were no rooms available for early check in, so we waited in the lobby after a long flight. At 12.30pm we were able to check into our room. The hotel is close to the subway and is situated in Chinatown with lots of places to eat nearby. I think the best part of this hotel was the breakfast. They had a wide selection of waffles, toast, pastries, yoghurt, cereal, fruit, etc. But make sure you don't get down there too late otherwise there won't be much left. Overall, this hotel is good for the price and location.

The area directly around the hotel is a little grimy but the location is really great for the price. The staff were really helpful, the price includes good wi-fi in the rooms and breakfast and the hotel is pretty new so our room was spotless. It's only a 10 minute walk to Soho and Greenwich Village and even less to the Lower East Side. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance and the subway is one block away. It's a good choice if you want to be near Soho etc but can't afford to stay there.

Here are my random thoughts on this hotel:

Initially, we walked right by it as the name is written in Chinese. I later noticed that when it's near check-in time, a sign with the logo and name in English is put out at the entrance.

Staff was wonderful, ready to help when needed. We arrived at the hotel way too early for check-in and they kept our bags in a designated room.

Like many rooms in New York City, the room was small. For example, the chair for the desk was right against the bed. When not using the desk, though, there was a spot for the chair which didn't impinge on space. There was also an easy chair in the room. The bed was as high as Mount Everest so had to actually climb onto it. Once in the bed, it was extremely comfortable.

All the lamps had easy to use buttons so no fumbling in the dark. One lamp had 2 extra outlets attached to the base.

Wifi was free.

Grand Station for the B and D lines was a 3 minute walk.
Bowery Station for the J and Z lines was a 5 minute walk.
Both of these were just off Chrystie Street.

Breakfast was from 7-10 AM and had the usual stuff. The tables were spread throughout the floor. My favourites were the ones by the window.

Chinatown is very busy outside on the sidewalk. The chinese buses depart from about a block away. Have patience when walking. Everyone on the sidewalk was polite but it was crowded.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on an upper floor if you'd like a view.

We stayed a total of 8 nights and we were on the 7th floor, just high enough to have a partial view of the bridge. If possible request a higher floor. The rooms are cozy, I guess this is NYC style. The bathroom was quite a generous size and very clean, modern shower head and facilities. Good hot water, water pressure and drainage. Nice, clean and firm bed only issue with ours was that it had a broken plastic mattress protector, so the corner of plastic kept jabbing my partner, nothing major though. The free breakfast was pretty good, often got a little too crowded, we always went near closing time though, so it's to be expected. Very close to Grand Street station, walkable to Canal Street station which has some different Metro lines. Towards the end of our stay we were a bit concerned about the constant smell of cigarette/cigar smoke, the hotel is 100% non-smoking so we spoke to the front desk about it, they said they would investigate. The smell did still hang around, but the lady at the front desk was very nice and she did seem genuine about investigating for us.

Dear Bangforbucktravel,
Thank you for choosing the Comfort Inn Manhattan Bridge Hotel during your recent visit to NYC. Your review and comments mean a world to us, as a measurement of our service and product. Like to thank you for let us know about the mattress cover and assure you that it has since been taken care of. I do apologize for the cigarette smell, yes we are a 100% smoke free hotel and have a strict penalty. We make every effort to enforce the policy.
We pride ourselves in our breakfast selections and hope that if you had any items that you would like to see in a future stay please let us know. Breakfast does get crowded but we like to make sure that everyone of our guest has the opportunity to experience our morning breakfast.
In appreciation for your review please use "LTRIPP" on your return visit and join our Facebook page.
Best regards,
Comfort Inn MB

Fun location to explore Chinatown and Lower East Side. Traveling alone and never felt unsafe, stayed 2/26-2/28. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. I booked a loft room which was clean and comfortable and had an amazing view of the Manhattan Bridge. Very good value.

Room Tip: Loft rooms provide separate sitting area with TV and fantastic view of Manhattan Bridge.
