4 Affordable Hotels in NYC (Under $150 Per Night!)


If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Manhattan, look no further. We’ve combed through New York’s hotels to find affordable accommodation for travelers on a budget!

In most cities, searching for hotels under $150 would literally yield too many results to survey.  In Manhattan and Brooklyn, however, most people are giddy if they can score a couch on Airbnb for that little.  While that whole city-that-never-sleeps thing probably means you won’t be making too much use of your hotel, everyone still needs a great place to freshen up before brunch, am I right?

Here are 5 great spots in Manhattan and Brooklyn that won’t break your bank in the Big Apple.



Cheap Hotels in Manhattan


1. Sugar Hill Harlem Inn

Neighborhood: Harlem at 460 W. 141st Street

Designed to provide a genuine view into Harlem architecture and lifestyle, the Sugar Hill Harlem Inn does not disappoint. The three-story townhouse converted into a hotel offers the best of Manhattan’s brownstone architecture – gorgeous hardwood floors, antique furnishings, and plenty of bay windows to boot!

Architecture fans and museum goers are most likely to covet this spot, as Columbia University, the Apollo Theater, and the Guggenheim Museum are all a short walk or subway rides away.

For some genuine Harlem soul food with an upscale twist, head to Marcus Samuelsson’s famed Red Rooster restaurant for brunch after your walking tour!

2. Pod 39 Hotel

Neighborhood: Murray Hill at 145 E. 39th Street

In walking distance from the Empire State Building, Bryant Park, and numerous other midtown Manhattan attractions, the Pod 39 Hotel is literally a steal wrapped in a gorgeous brick building in New York’s Murray Hill neighborhood.

The absolute star of the hotel is Salvation Taco, an open-air rooftop cantina run by Michelin-starred chefs with dazzling views of midtown and even better dishes and cocktails.

As its name may have hinted, Pod 39’s calling card are its small and compact beds, so just make sure you’re super comfortable with your travel buddy!

3. Park Savoy Hotel

Neighborhood: Midtown West at 158 W. 58th Street

When it comes to location, there is almost nothing that can beat Manhattan’s Park Savoy Hotel. Central Park and Columbus Circle are less than five minutes away, and the shops of Fifth Avenue or lights of Times Square aren’t much farther.

However, what the Park Savoy has in prime location it lacks in over-the-top amenities.  The hotel is known for having a clean but unexciting layout, with small elevators and even smaller bathrooms.

With that said, probably the best perk of the Park Savoy is being at the epicenter of Manhattan’s 24-hour pizza and food truck scene – you might be a little cramped, but you’ll never go hungry!

4. Hampton Inn

Neighborhood: Downtown Brooklyn at 125 Flatbush Avenue

If you’re looking for a familiar place to cash in those reward points but don’t want to sacrifice an authentic New York experience to do so, head no further than the Hampton Inn conveniently located adjacent the Manhattan Bridge. Replete with local artwork and a full-service bar that more closely resembles a Bushwick lounge, this Hampton Inn will make you forget you were ever staying in a franchise hotel. For a terrific nightcap, head to one of two terraced patios for absolutely breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline!

There are also Hampton Inn locations in Times Square and Grand Central if you prefer a Manhattan location.

This is a great list. Park Savoy Hotel seems very promising! I’m always looking for hotels with great value in Manhattan since I’m more interested in spending money on activities instead!
