I hate to give this place a 3 stars. Stayed here for 5 nights. I couldn't sleep at this place. Weird and odd (I think this place might be HAUNTED!!!), please keep reading my review. OK, the hotel is good for the price and location. It's Chinatown, so there's a lot of place to eat and very convenient to hit Little Italy and Soho. You can take the subs few blocks down, not bad, although not very close. I always stay in Soho or Chinatown area while in NY. I've been to NY many times and I go there pretty often. I highly recommend Best Western Chinatown, I forgot the full  name, but it's close by NONYA Singapore Malaysian restaurant. That location is much more convenient than Hotel Mulberry. OK, this hotel is very clean and the staffs were nice to us. BUT, about 3 doors down, there's a CHINESE MORTUARY!!!! I didn't realize or see the sign on my first night there. The next day, while I was walking towards the left side of hotel (if U stand facing the park), you will pass by this mortuary. Eerie!!!! I'm a believer, probably that's why. I'm not going to be so religious or get into details. My mom and I couldn't get a good night sleep. I was awake, twisting and turning the whole night. I was exhausted everyday in NY, lots of walking, etc, go out in the morning and come back at night, I still couldn't sleep. I was not exaggerating. This was real. Next to the right side, there's a Hong Kong hair salon and next to it is a Chinese store where they sell papers for Chinese dead people, those fake Mercedes Benz car made of paper, paper house, fake paper money, Chinese paper dolls, all these accessories. My grandpa was a Buddhist, when he died, he was cremated with all these accessories. I don't know the exact word for it. Anyway, Buddhist people do this at the funeral. On my fourth night here, the street was closed due to the Chinese FUNERAL. Anyway, so yeah. If you are a non believer, this hotel should be fine. I won't stay here again. Even the hallway to my room is a bit eerie, you know that feeling when someone is watching you invisibly. Sorry to say this, but I really wished there's no Mortuary. This hotel was renovated, so I didn't know what was it before. You just never know!!!

This is what I would refer to "a diamond in the rough".  Located in an obscure side street of Chinatown and in between other storefronts that are in dire need of a makeover.

Booked my room on a travel site ( hotels.com I believe) for much less than the hotel's website booking system.

+ staff always helpful, courteous, and friendly
+ free wifi
+ comfy beds
+ close to lots of eateries and a Dunkin' Donuts (for that caffeine fix)
+ quite and decently appointed rooms
+ super clean
+ free hot breakfast
+ close to a laundromat
+ Close to main streets, shopping, Little Italy, and subway stations
+ cool view (get to watch people doing tai chi in the park in the mornings)
+ inexpensive (for NYC)
+ modern interior & exterior design

Not so good:
- odd location, most taxi drivers had no idea how to get to it without GPS or verbal direction
- no ice machine, had to ask for ice from front desk (which they delivered to my room, but I felt bad bothering them for ice every night)
- not the Waldorf Astoria, but not the same price either!

* As for the reviewer claiming this place is "haunted", while, yes, it is close to a Chinese funeral home (about 7 or 8 doors down), I would have to challenge their logic.  Most (if not ALL) supernatural activity is reported to take place in the location of the person's untimely or violent death/murder, not where their body is moved to after death.  If we were to follow the line of reasoning that a person can haunt a place OTHER than the place of death, then cemeteries, university labs, medical schools/cadaver farms, transport airplanes, military hangars, the rear section of a Herst, cargo holds on military ships, hospital & city morgues, the roads driven between a funeral home and the cemetery,  those "inside the body" exhibits that feature plasticized humans, museums that have any body part on display, the trunk of my car (j/k!), or any other place between the place of death and up to (and including) the place of final rest could all be haunted, which is just simply not the case.  Think of the most famous hauntings, such as the Amityville house, supernatural activity occurs INSIDE the house, not the neighbor's house, not in the car in the driveway, not the front of back yard (except in that one scene in the original Poltergeist movie with the skeletons in the pool), but always INSIDE the house itself.  Reported Civil War battleground haunting, take place on the location of soldier's death (the battlefield itself), NOT the KMart parking lot across the way or the soccer field down the road.  Reportedly haunted prisons and hospitals, etc, all haunted b/c they were the actual place of death, not the place bodies were moved post-mortem.

I would venture to say the reviewer who claims a haunting-induced insomnia stemmed from them convincing themselves "ghosts" were keeping them awake, sort of a hypochondria/mind-over-matter thing.

My Girlfriend and I decided to go to NYC for the weekend for her birthday and after hours of searching for the right place to stay I found this place and I'm very glad that I did! The hotel is relatively new (winter 2010 I believe) and it shows. The rooms are very clean, modern and quite spacious for New York. The bathroom was beautiful and water pressure was great, perfect for a nice relaxing shower after a long day of walking around the city seeing everything there is to see. Then you can climb into the most amazingly comfortable bed and sleep soundly knowing there are no bedbugs. I have to make a note of the balcony which was HUGE. Almost as big as the room itself and looks out over a park across the street where little Chinese ladies do their Tai Chi in the morning and play authentic Chinese music in the evenings. Which brings me to my next point, Chinatown. The hotel is located on a little out of the way street in Chinatown which is an attraction all in itself. There are numerous authentic Asian restaurants to enjoy and tons of fresh fruit stands all along the street selling lychees and dragon fruits and the like. If that's not your thing, no worries, as Little Italy is 5 min walk up the street and SOHO shopping is just as close. Transport isn't a problem either as the Canal st subway station is a 10 min walk from the hotel and getting uptown takes no more than 20 min. (If the subway scares you taxi's are always available and for $40 and $55 you can get a car to LGA and JFK respectively)

All of the staff were very nice and helpful with any questions we had and in storing our bags before and after we checked in. Another nice "extra" is the free WIFI which is separate for each floor so you never have to worry about slow connection speeds and the included breakfast which is actually a voucher for an actual restaurant a couple doors down the street.

The next time we are in New York we will definitely be staying here and I will be recommending it to anyone I know going out for any period of time. Do yourself a favor and book a room at the Hotel Mulberry.

The Mulberry gets four stars based on its price and its proximity to the courthouse.  It is kind of like a Mandarin Marriott.  I stayed there in April 2013 -- the business part of it was fine but I think I would have preferred something higher end and more uptown for the weekend.

I decided to try this hotel based on the reviews and I am so glad I did! This hotel did not disappoint. The staff was courteous, the room and bathroom were spacious, and the entire hotel was spotless. They give you a voucher for breakfast at Mama's Eatery 4 doors down and the breakfast was good and the restaurant is filled with New York's Finest. I would highly recommend this hotel if you don't mind being outside all the hustle and bustle of Times Square.

This hotel is great! We got a great deal on a deluxe king room and were very impressed. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was immaculate. The hotel staff was very courteous and helpful in answering all of our questions and providing great restaurant recommendations in the area. When we arrived at the hotel we were running a bit late for an engagement, the concierge booked a car for us and called our room when it arrived. The entire experience was pleasant. We would definitely stay here again.
The only con was the breakfast. The hotel provides a voucher for you to go to a restaurant three doors down for breakfast. The restaurant was mediocre at best, you're better off fending for yourself.

The reviews led me here and I'm very glad they did. I don't think you can find a better value. The hotel was extremely clean and the staff was exceptionally courteous. We arrived prior to check in and had no trouble checking in early. I would say Hotel Mulberry is probably the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in. I'd also add that the free breakfast is excellent. Vouchers are provided for a cafe a couple buildings away, and the food there is very good. Wifi was free, and very fast. My only caution would be if you plan on parking here, know that it will be very expensive. The nearby parking garage was over 40 dollars for less than 24 hours, and that is with the hotel discount, and it is not self park. If I stay here again, I'll take the train.

I needed to put my Mom up in a hotel for an evening and this was a great option.  Beautiful, large room with a view of the park.  Very clean establishment and friendly staff.

Price is great, location is FAntastic...dumpling places left and right.Very quiet few car horn beep beep street (few structure to the left are few funeral parlors,front is a nice park and right is a parking structure $36a day if hotel guest/restaurants with all kinds of food finds/souvenirs shops).

'Hotel is new winter 2010. Interiors are updated with Asian  BangKok-Taiwan-Hong Kong 3-4 star hotel flare to it. Beds are clean so are the rooms/bathrooms. Interior walls are mold/stain free with new paint/carpet.Updated bathrooms with strong water pressure. Furniture are great condition cheaply made yet well taste. No stuffy smell in lobby/hallways and rooms. Not a business hotel more of a leisure....staff are friendly, free brkfst (yet outside is what I came here for DIMSUM).
Asian owned salon shares the building front.Good for court house/city hall weddings ..court house is within the block.

Its in Chinatown so be ready for dirty street experience ( its just NYC itself)

Lets say hotel is too fancy for backpackers
Too low class for high class travelers.

What a great hotel! This is one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in.  It is in an out of the way spot with a park across the street. It was lovely to watch the senior citizens going though their morning exercise routine.  Just a walk up the block and you are in the thick of it - markets, restaurant and shops.

The breakfast vouchers were quite nice. The restaurant was just a few doors down.  The breakfast was hearty and it seemed to be a favorite of the NYC police getting off the night shift.

The rate was a bit high, but it it NYC and centrally located. Bathrooms and rooms were spotless, lots of towels, free wifi and great air conditioning.

I would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to get back there soon!

This place was terrific!  I went with my three sons (14,12 & 10) and stayed in a double queen room. Plenty of room, great, sunny view of a really fun-to-observe and pretty park and the Freedom Tower.  Everything was super clean, good quality linens, comfortable beds and the staff was very nice, absolutely no attitude.  Also, very, very quiet at night, which was awesome (not sketchy - we walked down from Little Italy after 11 pm one night and I did not feel at all nervous).  Everything you need for a launch point to explore NY, especially if you love Downtown/SoHo/Tribeca/Battery Park etc.  I'm very picky (usually stay at Omnis and other high end hotels) and researched this for hours...made and cancelled many reservations elsewhere in the process.  This was a great value and I'd stay again.

New furnishings.  New bathroom.  The room, bathroom, hallway, elevator, and lobby were all clean and well kept.  Two queen room was large enough for the 2 beds and a little desk.  Floor-to-ceiling windows opened the room right up.  Smaller hotel so it was not crowded and busy like other bigger NYC hotels.  Mulberry is a quieter street overlooking Columbus Park.  Breakfast is in Mama Eatery a couple doors down and also clean and well kept.  Overall a nice experience and recommended (unless, of course, you really want a busy, crowded hotel on a louder street).

I would like to start by saying that this hotel had THE best free breakfast I've ever had. They gave us each a voucher to go to a little restaurant (Mama Bakery) a couple doors down, and get breakfast. It. was. delicious.

The location was pretty great, easy walk to lots of stuff in that area.

Staff was really nice!

Beds were really comfy.

Wifi was not half bad, speed-wise.

I'd definitely stay here again.

Tip! To turn on the lights you have to put your hotel key in this slot, and if you take it out, the lights go off. We didn't realize this for the longest time and thought the power was out.

A Gem In New York City. - WOW. My friends and I finally after a few wrong turns made it to Hotel Mulberry. The outside look of it seems small, and when you step inside you're greeted with a lovely interior. The front desk staff were very helpful and nice. The sign in terms seemed abit rushed but the process was smooth. Arrived upstairs to find a very spacious hotel suite that was very cozy. Fridge is a definite plus!! The bathroom was big and also spacious. Floor was small but quiet, making for a very relaxing night. My friends had issues with the key card needed to use power, but I found it practical. Also free wifi :D and across the street from a cozy park. The walk back from the subway was also quiet and easy, no awkard situations. The walk from the subway isn't that bad of a walk either. You go from Canal St. To get to the hotel, which isn't bad. The N or Q subway had us up in Times Square in under 10 minutes. If we were staying longer there are markets nearby which is nice if you want to stock up your fridge with cold drinks or snacks. Abit fair from all the action but in a quiet neighborhood. I'd recommend it to whoever was coming to NY for a visit :) Definitely going to be staying here again in the future.

I was pleasantly surprised by Hotel Mulberry. Every time I've stayed in NY, the hotel room is the size of a coat closet. However, my room was a decent size that had two full beds, closet, dresser, side table, desk and two chairs plus a full bath. Room and bath were clean. Bed was comfy. Hotel staff was super nice. Location was a bit odd. I have to admit, I wasn't too sure what to expect with being in Chinatown and on a block with funeral homes. Hey, at least the neighbors are quiet, right?! Sorry, that was in poor taste. I was also in walking distance to really good Chinese food and yummy desserts in Little Italy. I could walk easily to TriBeCa for my meetings or hail a number of cabs on Worth. For a weary traveler, you can't beat a clean and comfortable room...and free WiFi!

Great service and location! Very friendly personnel. Rooms are clean and my room had a view of the Empire state building. Mulberry hotel has a complimentary breakfast at mama eatery nearby. This hotel is located right across the U.S. District court.

Went across the country for a vacation in New York and discovered Hotel Mulberry for their low rates compared to many hotels in Manhattan and was close to many attractions. Since my flight was delayed for six hours from San Francisco and that I was arriving at 3AM the staff were able to accommodate us at that hour for being late. As we arrived at the hotel it was pretty modern for being in Chinatown. As we arrived the staff at the front desk was very welcoming and friendly. The room we had was deluxe double queen and it was very spacious with a closet, dresser, nightstands, and DirecTV. The beds here were pretty comfy with many pillows and the housekeeping staff were very attentive in organizing and cleaning our room which was very appreciated. They also provide a complementary breakfast at Mama Eatery which is few doors down from the hotel. I would highly recommend Hotel Mulberry if you are looking for a place to stay in New York City.

I absolutely LOVE this little boutique hotel.  I'll stay again & again.  I made reservations for our 15 year anniversary on bookit.com and paid $645 for 5 days ($129/night).  Its so clean & close to great food, we went to New Wonton Garden on Mott street twice, they have the BEST sui mai we've ever had.  
Pros: new, quiet, beautiful, clean rooms with views & a comfy king size bed= perfect
           friendly, personal service
           close to subway & waterfront (10 minutes)
           block to Grotto Azzura in Little Italy (gift certs on restaurant.com )
           block to Chinatown
           wasn't harrassed by anyone
           free breakfast (not great, but hey its free & will make a turd)
           flatscreen tv with hbo
           free wifi
           free safe & refrigerator in room
Cons: 10 minutes walk to subway (long way when feet are tired so you better wear    comfy shoes)

We had a wonderful stay here in Dec. when we traveled to NYC to get married. To our delight,  we were in Penthouse 1 for 3 wonderful nights. The staff is friendly and helpful and the desk staff accurate and efficient. The room was spacious and the view fantastic. I reported the wifi signal not working one night and within minutes(2) it was reset and operating. What a gem of a place and we found the location easy to navigate the subways from and plenty of great restaurants nearby. Will stay there again.

This is a very nice hotel. It was a great find and a great price. The staff here was extremely friendly. The breakfast vouchers for the restaurant next door were great. It was very convenient to stay here versus the crowded and expensive hotels in midtown. We had a beautiful view of Columbus Park and some classic NY skyline. It was very clean.

In July, several of us met up from all across the globe. Some from NY State, one from Belgium, one from Las Vegas, me from Jersey.  We split a room for several nights.  Two double beds.  The room was spacious for what I have heard about hotels.  The room was clean and the closet space was plentiful as was the bathroom.  

The front desk staff was very attentive and friendly.  The view we had was amazing. I got a front seat view of the aerobics class held every morning. The beds were super comfy and I sank right into my pillow at the end of each day.  The decor was so modern and inviting.  The complimentary breakfast down the street was delicious as well.

Suprisingly the area was very quiet at night and safe, unless we were walking up and down the street hahaha.  

I would highly recommend this location for a stay in NYC and would go back again.

Not a bad stay in the Chinatown/little Italy area. Just a quick note, most cab drivers have no clue where the heck this place is. Moving on.

It's a really small boutique hotel, amazing price, and the rooms are lovely. Not huge, but average sizes and clean. They also overlook Columbus park which is so pretty. There is some noise, lots of kids screaming and sports activities, but it's NYC and way better than sirens and construction noise.

The rooms below us had gorgeous terraces but note that I can watch and see everything you do on there. So not super private.

There are really no American food options in the very immediate vicinity and at least a 10 minute walk. So if you need snacks or forgot a toiletry... you are hiking a bit.

It is also very hard to get a taxi, as it's not a major or busy street and the front desk doesn't really help with that. Which made making meetings a bit difficult.

Overall a quiet and nice experience, just not very convenient if you plan to venture outside of Chinatown.

All the good reviews are true. This place is a gem in NYC where rooms are so small you have to go outside to change your mind. Not here. And the rooms are QUIET which is very hard to find. The Canal Street subway is s couple blocks away. You really can't go wrong with Hotel Mulberry. It's not perfect; you're in Chinatown so forget finding a good (there are bad though) American breakfast restaurant if you sleep in past 10AM and the hotel's partner American restaurant (Mama's) is closed. WiFi is not to fast either but these are nitpicks and this hotel is solid.

We thought we would save a couple bucks and stay cheaper and outside of the touristy area. When we checked in, the staff was very rude and short with us.

Our room, was clean and nice size. Our WiFi didn't work which was extremely disappointing. We booked city view through booking.com and our view wasn't much. Itt overlooked the park that played loud annoying oriental music all day long. Our exhaust fan in our bathroom didn't work either, so every time we took a hot shower the steam and moist air would linger into the room.

The breakfast voucher is a joke. The place they send you to is a two woman operation, who clearly hate their job. The eggs are cooked in microwave.. On plastic plates. Our toast didn't come with any butter or jam.
Checking out of the room, we were in a rush to grab a cab and make it to the airport and the staff wouldn't help us get a cab. They told us we had to walk up a block with our luggage and flag a cab down.

We will never return back to this place. Better off paying the extra $40 at a hotel that works hard to accommodate their guests.

Stayed here on a layover while passing through Manhattan a few months ago. I don't look for amenities when choosing a hotel in another city since my view is that if I'm visiting another city I want to get out and see the city rather than the inside of a hotel room. I look for three basic things in hotels, location, cleanliness and price.

Hotel Mulberry is a great place to stay if you're looking to find comfort without all the bells, whistles and craziness of a place in Midtown.

The rooms are generously sized, the beds were comfortable, there were three nightstands (one for every person sharing the bed), the wi-fi connection was reliable, and the pressure of the shower was GREAT! I know, why mention the shower, right? Well, as I was checking the TripAdvisor reviews for Hotel Mulberry, I noted that someone made an emphatic comment about the shower pressure ... and it is SPOT ON. Something about even, solid water pressure from the shower head is very refreshing after walking around the city all day. Why am I writing about a shower head?!? But it's small things like this that make Hotel Mulberry a great value. The hot water/tea in the lobby and breakfast vouchers were also pluses.

And in terms of location - it's close to Soho, and just a few blocks from the NQJZ lines on Canal so it's easy to go Uptown if you need to.

We were pleasantly surprised with Hotel Mulberry for accommodations and would stay there again for sure.

NOTE: Chinatown car services are just a call away if you need a cheap ride to the airport. It was about $10 less than a cab.

I can't account for the actual hotel stay, but I had to make a reservation for a client. This location worked for us as the hotel is very close to one of the courthouses--I believe less than a mile!

Great customer service! They were very communicative and pleasant via email--I had to make and cancel the reservation a few times due to our own scheduling issues and they were extremely accommodating and understanding.

Minus one star because I had some issues making the reservation online--the first time I made the reservation, I did not save the reservation. Glad I caught it!

This hotel is absolutely perfect for a copule, a single person, or a few friends going out.

Compared to Times Square,  i paid almost $150 to $200 less per night and I was given the same amenities, if not more (you'll see why/how)

For $130 a night:
1 bed - King size
Room with Balcony overlooking Manhattan (ex. Freedom Tower, local park, etc.), which was bigger than our actual room - amazing!
Bathroom with large enough bath tub to lay in and soak
Room service was incredibly prompt

I would highly recommend staying here. I went out every night I was there, relying on taxi's and subways. The cost for a taxi ride from St. Marks was about $8 dollars. The ride from Penn Station was also around $11.

Highly recommend Mama's bakery - you're given a breakfast voucher to use. worth it!

If you're not into what they offer (even though its basically the perfect breakfast), Yelp  Cup and Saucer - fantastic American style breakfast diner a few blocks down

Seriously though, If you're doing what I did (got a hotel b/c its more fun to have a place to crash in the city while you pull all-nighters but you're still really picky about where you stay) this is the place to go! You can't beat the price for what you get


I stayed 4 days. Not a single complaint! And I plan on staying there again.
