Stay in New York

As you know, whenever I look for accommodation on my trips, I like to look in neighborhoods with an atmosphere, where I can mix a little with the local life of the city. In addition, I always like to look for charming accommodation.

When we looked for our accommodation in New York, we carried out an exhaustive study to find a hotel with a good location and value for money. New York is a city where accommodation is quite expensive, so we want to share our advice, in case it can help you in organizing your trip to New York. But you have to keep in mind that an important part of the budget will be dedicated to accommodation. The sooner we assume it, the better 😉

In today’s post, I am going to tell you all the possible areas to stay in New York, I will also indicate the advantages of staying in each district, and I will recommend several budget hotels in New York City.

The best neighborhoods to stay in in New York

Before starting to talk about the different areas to stay in New York, we are going to give you a series of tips when looking for your accommodation. And so later we can divide the city by zones, we tell you the places of interest that we find in each district and we tell you the advantages of staying in each one of them.

We are going to recommend several hotels, according to budget, in each area. Cheap hotels have a price between 100 and 150 Euros per night. We will try to find hotels for less than 100 Euros, but in some areas, it will be quite complicated. The average price of hotels is between 150 and 250 Euros. And luxury hotels, the price per night is over 250 Euros.

Keep in mind that in high season the price may increase.

We advise you to read the post on Travel preparations to New York, where we tell you all the steps to take into account to organize your trip.

Midtown – The best area to stay in New York

The Midtown area is, without a doubt, the best option to stay in New York, especially if it is your first visit to the city or you come for a few days since it is the most central neighborhood where we find the vast majority of tourist attractions, such as Times Square, Broadway, Rockefeller, and the mythical Empire State.

This is the area par excellence where the majority of tourists looking for accommodation in New York, therefore, it is an area where hotels tend to sell out earlier and their prices are also higher. In addition, in some cases, the quality is not as expected in relation to the high price we pay. But hey, it’s something we already have in New York, and staying in the heart of Manhattan has its price.

Another negative point to take into account is that it is an area with a lot of traffic, both from cars and people and tourists, so if you are looking for quiet accommodation in New York, Midtown is not the best alternative.
