Mostly Europeans book this sleek hotel, which sits on the porous border between Chinatown and Little Italy. My guess is they’re drawn by the clean Scandinavian-style design (lots of neutral colors offset by pops of red, hidden drawers that double your storage space, angular lamps, and two-room bathrooms). I like the king units best, as they have floor-to-ceiling windows that open to a Juliet balcony overlooking the action on Grand Street below. But the queen-bedded rooms, the cheapest on property, are a bit quieter as they face a courtyard rather than the street (that being said, Grand Street isn’t particularly busy at night, just during the day). One note: the beds, though high quality, are firmer than many Americans are used to (perhaps because the hotel’s owner is Malaysian and that’s the style there).
