Map & Directions
From New York by bus:
We recommend you Google 'Chinatown Bus' to get the best bus tickets. About five companies have the lowest rates from NY at about $20 one-way. The journey should take around four hours and 20 minutes, depending on traffic. The drop-off locations are right here in Chinatown, less than 10 minutes’ walk from us. Please note that the Greyhound bus station is some distance from Chinatown and we do not recommend it.
From the drop-off point: Get off at 7th and H St. NW. Walk north up a slight hill on 7th St. After two blocks, turn right onto NY Ave, then take your first left onto 6th St. NW. Walk for another minute and we’re at 1110 6th St. NW – it’s a building with fire escape. There’s no sign on the building because this is a historical district and signs aren’t allowed.
