New York may be the city that never sleeps, but even the most caffeinated tourists have to take a breather sometime. We’ve found some cheap New York hotels (by this city’s standards, at least)—not hostels, but actual hotels with private bathrooms—that feature Instagram-worthy amenities and rates low enough to leave you with enough money to take a sizable bite out of the Big Apple.

* The fine print: These hotel prices are based on a one-night stay at the end of June. 

Cosmopolitan Hotel; starting at $229 a night


What: A 129-room TriBeCa hotel with high-end finishes and an onsite Starbucks.

Why: You can’t decide which part of town you want to stay in, so lodging that straddles the bustling Financial District and chic Soho is a safe bet.

Start spreadin’ the news: Every Friday morning, hotel guests are invited to take a free walking tour with stops including Wall Street and the Freedom Tower.

Nu Hotel; starting at $197 a night


What: An airy hotel whose 93 rooms boast oh-so-Brooklyn features like hardwood floors, vibrant murals and even hammocks.

Why: You’re traveling with the family, so perks like bunk beds, free continental breakfast to satisfy picky eaters and childcare (for a free) make life easier.

Start spreadin’ the news: This hipster hotel keeps things earthy, from the recycled wood furniture and free bike rentals, to the local beers in the minibar.

Aloft Harlem; starting at $297 a night


What: A 122-room hotel with the cultural cache of Harlem and the modern touches of the Aloft brand, including a news ticker over the elevators and keyless check-in (there’s an app for that).

Why: You prefer the Apollo Theater to the Theater District, Sylvia’s soul food to Restaurant Row and hole-in-the-wall jazz joints to Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Start spreadin’ the news: Too tired to go out but don’t want to “waste” a night in your room being antisocial? The hotel bar hosts DJs and karaoke nights, and there’s a pool table in the lobby.

Park South Hotel; starting at $279 a night


What: A 131-room Midtown hotel that gets high marks for its clean rooms and helpful staff.

Why: You want the convenience of being within a 10-minute walk from the Empire State Building, but without sacrificing perks like free wifi and turn-down service with chocolates.

Start spreadin’ the news: The hotel’s rooftop cocktail bar features fireplaces and spectacular city views.

Washington Jefferson Hotel; starting at $242 a night


What: A hotel with 158 small yet comfortable rooms and suites in Hell’s Kitchen.

Why: You’re all about location, location, location. The hotel is less than a 10-minute walk from Times Square and the Theater District.

Start spreadin’ the news: On Thursday mornings, hotel guests are invited to take a free walking tour of the neighborhood covering off-Broadway theaters, Hell’s Kitchen restaurants and more.

Opera House Hotel; starting at $169 a night


What: A 60-room South Bronx hotel that’s an 11-minute train ride from Yankee Stadium.

Why: For the price, you can’t pass up perks like free continental breakfast, 24/7 coffee and tea on the mezzanine level and an unheard-of 18,000-square-foot fitness center run by Crunch Gym.

Start spreadin’ the news: The newly renovated decor is a throwback to Harry Houdini and the Marx Brothers, who once performed there.
