Manhattan Budget Hotels Less than $100 per Night

Cheap budget hotels in NYC are somewhat difficult to find. After all, one of the most expensive things in Manhattan is space! We all pay a LOT of money to live here and the price and size of many apartments would likely shock you. There are plenty of clean cheap budget hotels in Manhattan, NYC, some with really interesting rooms and great amenities.

Jane Hotel NYC

3 Star Rating

Cheap Budget Hotels in NYC

The rooms at The Jane are designed like a ship’s cabin. The low rate catch is there is only a single bed — and the coed bathroom is down the hall. Some rooms offer bunk beds and the “captain’s cabin” with private bathroom starts at $225. The hip, but tiny rooms, come with free wi-fi, 23-inch LCD television, DVD player, iPod dock, built-in drawers and a luggage rack plus bicycles are complimentary and they are right on the Hudson River. Brunch at the Jane Hotel is a NYC favorite.
