I found the accomodations very much to my liking. the rooms were clean and when we arrived and they were cleaned each morning when my wife and I left to go about the city. The Location was ideal right in Manhattan, most things within walking distance if you are up for some exercise and walk. I love walking. The security... More

Ok there are some positives. The location is great in Chelsea and close to the subway making it easy to get uptown or downtown. The High Line can be accessed at the end of the street and definitely worth a visit. Overall, it is quieter than some other areas of Manhattan, however if your room faces 23rd street like ours...

We stayed at the Leo House based on a recommendation from a friend who said it was reasonable and in a great location. True on both counts. You walk out the door right into the action of lower Manhattan; close to subways and restaurants. Initial reaction was good, with a well-maintained, clean lobby and friendly and accommodating staff. It's an... More

So I don't know why I am writing this, except they deserve the accolade and everyone should stay! Our room was perfect, small but who needs a big room if you are there to see the city. Super comfy beds with THREE pillows each and excellent quality bed and bath linens. Even though we were street side we slept well.... More

Leo House is a very basic youth hostel-type place. Location is the best: 23rd St in Chelsea, between 8th/9th Aves, close to everything and everywhere, good subway lines nearby. My room had a quiet and powerful air conditioner and bilious pink walls with spackle remnants, a cross on the wall as big as the mirror, a TV smaller than both,... More

If lowest price is a big criteria, The Leo House delivers. Good neighborhood in the heart of Chelsea, small attractive welcoming lobby, friendly helpful staff and very clean, utilitarian rooms. Mine was a single--extremely comfortable twin bed, desk which has a couple of drawers if needed, a small closet and a small but very adequate bathroom. Also two chairs in... More

Via tripadvisor we have booked Leo House. And it met up our expectation. Great beds and clean but very basic room. The location of the hotel is perfect; walking distance to almost everything. 20 min Times Square and 30 min Wall Street. If you don't want anything but a good bed and a good location, Leo House is perfect.

Catholic or not, the Leo House, a boutique hotel in the Chelsea area is an exceptional value! It is going through a complete renovation so it is a little noisy at 8 am but you should be down in the dining room at that time to partake in the wonderful full breakfast which is around 9 dollars. Great staff, laundry,... More

I’ve been to NYC so many times and only found out about this place recently. Its undergoing a renovation at present and I was lucky enough to have one of these newly refurbished rooms. They are spotless clean, small but cozy and very basic. No frills, but in all fairness what do you want in NYC apart from a clean... More

I say this with qualifications. But, I went online and and looked for a safe hotel for a woman traveling alone and this came out, for myself, to be a good experience. Unfortunately there really was not a lot of information, but, in my own experience a wonderful staff made this a very good stay. I do not travel afraid,... More
