A new boutique hotel quietly opened up in Chinatown last week and, with rates for the cheapest rooms (Parlor King) starting at $109, it presents a pretty good deal at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge.

The BeHotel NYC located in the old Grand Sichuan restaurant space, describes itself as a "stylishly appointed boutique hotel ... conceived for the world traveler who looks for comfort with modern sensibilities."

The few images we've found suggest that rooms are on the small and plain side, but do offer some sweet views. According to the (typo-riddled) website, Superior Double rooms (starting rate: $139) have "a spacious 320 sqaure foot setting along sweeping views of the Manhattan Brdge and alternate view of the Freedom Tower or the famed Lower East Side" (sic). At 460 square feet, the Loft Double room ($209) is the largest and has two bathrooms, two full beds and one queen bed "sectioned off by closing pocket doors for privacy and separate entrance". WiFi is free in all rooms.

The BeHotel is just around the corner from the development at 50 Bowery (tentatively named Hotel Bowery), and a short stroll from what may or may not be an Ace Hotel in the old Jarmulowsky Bank . About one mile west, too, will be another CitizenM; the second New York outpost for the Dutch brand.

We're not sure we can handle any more Be/B Hotels so we kinda hope this is just a one-time deal.

BeHotel On Canal Street

By looking at the picture I can tell that the rooms are not very spacious. The view is not that bad as you can see traffic outside the window.  Prices for the double rooms are not that bad but I would look to see if I can find a better deals at <a href="http://EZHotelsBooking.com">http://EZHotelsBooking.com</a>. Free WiFi is a must have in all hotels. Next time I'm in NY, I might stop by to get a closer look.


At first glance, I thought that was a room from the 1980s with a flat-screen photoshopped into it. #pass
