Business traveller
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
It was a tiny room no TVs,and they offered towels no rags. Worst ever they have bedbugs!! If it wasn’t freezing I wouldn’t check in. I was disappointed never again!

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I did not expect to much, but at least a window in my room would be nice.Also there is nowhere mentioned, that bathrooms are shared. I would not book this property knowing these two things. And if there are no windows, I would expect air cond to work as advertised. Cannot really imagine sleep in during summer time.

Manhattan Bowery Lodge: A place not to stay
The hotel was a big disappointment. They are dishonest. They removed some amount from my account after promising that payment will be done on site and that the credit card information they collected from me was just for security purposes. There was nothing to suggest during the booking process that any deposit was required. It was after I called to complain that they debited my account of that they said it was deposit for the rooms. Outside was dirty with lots of cigarette stumps and beer corks littering it. There was no elevator and the place reeked of alcohol and tobacco. The environment did not appear safe. There was no hotel staff or valet to welcome guests or help with luggage. I and my friends did not stay for a day. The place didn't feel clean, hospitable or safe enough for us. Manhattan Bowery lodge should not be allowed to advertise on again. The hotel is not what they claim to be. I suspect they debited my account because they know we wouldn't want to stay after arriving and seeing how horrible the place and the surrounding is. They are fraudsters.
