Opener: poor service, poor cleanliness, poor quality, incompentence I can (just about!) put up with. This place seems to be set up almost specifically as a scam, or certainly operates very dodgy practices We booked this in April 08 for a September visit. We decided the small number of poor reviews (on another site as that time there appeared to... More

My friend recommended that I stay at the Antique Cafe Bed and Breakfast in New York City. After reading some reviews on Trip Advisor, however, I was reluctant. I am glad I listened to my friend, because my experience was fantastic. A very nice gentleman called me a few days before we arrived to re-confirm and to ask if I... More

So after putting down a credit card to reserve a room (followed by an email that assured us NOTHING would be taken off the card until we arrived in New York) the EXACT same thing happened to us as the guy below: suddenly $600 was taken off the credit card. I wised up and came on tripadvisor and saw the... More

Our experience is similar to some of the reviews here. Thankfully our money was refunded, but now, a week from leaving for a NYC vacation, we need a place to stay. The full amount of our stay was charged, as opposed to the 10% deposit as stated on the website. We were also told a clerical error. After getting the... More

First off, I have to stress for anyone looking at these reviews, that it is essential that under any circumstances you do not book at the Antique Cafe Bed and Breakfast. It began when my partner booked our trip to NY and also booked the apartment in advance by 2 months through the Antique Cafe B&B. The owner took the... More

It was the first trip for my son, just 21, to New York. It was his birthday present. I wanted to organize this trip very good to give him a wonderful time. I booked the appartement from Antique Cafe already in January, for staying beginning of May. How disappointing, coming from Holland, and arriving midnight we received a phonecall from... More

I rented a one BR on W 11th Street for a two night stay. My son and I were visiting NYU. Due to flights being cancelled, we arrived early in the AM, and not in the late afternoon as we had planned. The owner's assistant was great and met us to give us the keys at 5:30 AM. The apartment... More

Once we had gotten our keys to our apartment (5 on 14th street) from the very rude and unfriendly staff at the café the apartment itself was very good. On arriving at JFK we rang the number we were told to ring on the booking form in order to enquire where to pick the keys up from and the guy... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
