Welcome to EuroCheapo's guide to cheap hotels in New York City!

Although our budget hotel sleuthing is primarily focused on European cities, our offices are located in the Big Apple. So we regularly send out our editors unannounced to inexpensive hotels all over the city, where they inspect the rooms, and pass their recommendations on to you.

New York’s hotel prices are unpredictable. Most big chain hotels in Midtown have wildly different rates from one night to the next, depending on availability. We’ve tried to avoid these properties in our hotel picks, focusing instead on smaller, less expensive hotels and B&Bs that have more straightforward (and lower) pricing. (These tend to be more interesting, too!)
