New York has, among other things, the highest hotel prices in the world. No wonder, real estate prices are already beyond good and bad. For a hotel room, you have to plan around 150 dollars per night. The average price is even three times as high.
It used to be cheaper to book an apartment with Airbnb. Unfortunately, those times are over. Landlords have long since increased prices, especially in Manhattan, where most tourists want to stay, as this part of the city is very central for the first trip to New York.

The most famous district in the Big Apple in Manhattan. Located on the Hudson River, this is where most of the main attractions are: Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Highline Park, and Fifth Avenue, to name a few.
Brooklyn, on the opposite side of the Hudson River, is becoming increasingly popular. Here you have a wonderful view of the Manhattan skyline and exciting neighborhoods.
Staten Island gives you a perfect view of the Statue of Liberty. For children, a visit to the Staten Island Zoo or Island Museum is interesting. The Staten Island ferry takes you to the southern tip of Manhattan for free in 15 minutes.
A good hotel or bed and breakfast can also be cheap. Often a location at one of the numerous metro stations is enough to get to the center of Manhattan quickly.
The rooms are very spacious and modern. The location is really perfect as you live very close to the Empire State Building or Madison Square Garden. There are also opportunities for shopping nearby. Our tip for a good place to stay in the Big Apple.
We have been to hotels in the Aloft chain many times. They are modern and always in a top location. So we can highly recommend this Aloft in Brooklyn. WiFi is included and parking is also available (if you’re starting a road trip in New York).
The Pod 51 costs less than 100 dollars and is located in Midtown East in Manhattan. The subway is not far and the rooms are modern. Free WIFI is also available. What more do you want?
Anyone who has been to New York knows how fascinating the view of New York is at night. Therefore, rooftop bars are very popular in New York – especially with tourists.
Just a few steps from Fifth Avenue in the middle of Manhattan, the hotel and especially the roof terrace is one of the top addresses if you want a special view of the skyline. A sun terrace is on the 23rd floor and the rooftop bar is on the top floor. The pool is great.
If you want to treat yourself to something, the Penninsula New York is the place for you.
The boutique hotel in the Nolita district also has a roof terrace. From here you have great views of the Empire State Building and the Manhattan skyline. The rooms are very modern and WiFi is available free of charge. For the location in the middle of the action, the price per night is a great deal.
