Are you looking for cheap hotels in New York? Surely the hotels in the Big Apple are not among the cheapest, however with opportune ones tips and advice that we will give you in this guide, you will not spend a fortune.

Sleeping in New York is quite expensive, and together with the cost of the flight, it is one of the expenses that most affect the trip. If you are organizing a low cost trip to New York it is good to observe some rules to contain costs, especially for the hotel.



How to save on hotels in New York

Surely the first advice if you are not constrained by work or other commitments, is avoid high season periods. The months that have the highest hotel rates are July and August, and the festive period of Christmas and New Year.

In these times it is certainly difficult to get good rates. If you don't have any other periods available, the best thing is book as soon as possible. In the most popular periods it never happens that the hotel offers rooms a few days before.

If hotels in Manhattan (the best area) are very expensive, look for accommodation in other New York boroughs such as Brooklyn or Queens. Choosing another neighborhood will certainly increase transportation costs to reach Manhattan and reduce the time available to visit the city and attractions, but if the savings are substantial enough, it is the best choice.

Another tip for saving money on accommodation in New York is to book camere quadruple o triple. If it is not a problem to share a room with friends or relatives, savings are guaranteed. A quadruple room costs slightly more than a double room, indeed it often happens that they have practically the same cost.

Brooklyn became a trendy district in New York and housing prices have been rising for quite some time. Every day it grows in popularity and there is a huge variety of shops, restaurants and art galleries.

The borough of Brooklyn is very large and can take a long time to get to Manhattan, depending on where you are in Brooklyn. Search apartments or hotels that have several subway lines nearby and, above all, that they have at least one express line so that you can get where you want in the shortest possible time. Excellent area is that of Williamsburg. Here are some budget hotel suggestions:

You can travel in both directions by ferry, train or bus. When you choose to sleep here, the possible savings on the price of an apartment or hotel in Jersey City are due add the cost of the trip e the extra time necessary for travel.

Tips for choosing a budget hotel in New York

There are taxes that are applied to hotel rooms and are 14,75%. Therefore, before confirming your hotel reservation, take a good look at what is included in the price and what you pay separately. Usually the prices indicated by Booking are already with all taxes included, but it is always better to check.

The size of the rooms in New York is minimal. If you don't want a small room, on the Booking website, when you select the type of room you can check its square meters. If you want a little more space, look for a room that has a minimum of 18m2.

Breakfast is almost never included. Hotels that include it usually charge quite dearly for it. If you want to save money, choose the option without breakfast included.

Verify that there is the bathroom in the room. In New York there are many hotels, even very good ones like the Seton hotel, Pod 39, Pod 51… which have private rooms with shared bathroom.
