OK, not a boutique hotel, nor a fancy upscale place. But it is still our go-to location in New York, whenever we are not renting for a long-term stay, as in the past few years. A former guest house, in need of some modernizing, with a new addition underway. Yet you won't find a more welcoming place, very clean, superb... More

We stayed over Easter 2015. Old rooms, inconsistent wifi...but we absolutely loved the place. Breakfast is great, good amenities, fantastic location (Chelsea), & the friendliness of staff towards us wonderful. It's not perfect, but we really loved returning to it after long days exploring the city, & that says it all. The basis of a fantastic NYC holiday

Although not modern by any means, our room was clean and the beds were wonderful. It was perfect for our needs. We did share a shower that was located down the hall next to our room. We did have an en-suite sink/toilet. If you need a hairdryer, just ask at the front desk. The staff was very friendly and helpful... More

In October 2015 I booked a room in this hotel for September 2016. They took away my money almost ONE YEAR in advance, even though it was stated in the booking website "pay later". When I canceled my reservation the hotel REFUSED to give me my money back, even though they were contacted by booking a million times. Eventually booking... More

Confused why this hotel has such good reviews. Great location but honestly this is one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed - it's definitely budget. Customer service to begin with was horrible - the guy with the beard at front desk would it kill you to smile or be polite!? Leo house is hyped up about the catholic nunnery... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the standard of this hotel. The reception staff are helpful and friendly. We were allocated the priest quarters which I believe are better equipped than the basic rooms. Although a friend traveling with us said they are more than adequate for your stay. Breakfast is $9 per person extra but proved to be excellent value... More

On our recent trip to New York our group of 10, ranging from 76 years of age to 14 years if age. spent 10 nights at Leo House. This accomodation is very reasonably priced and in a great location, but if you are looking for 5 star accomodation this is not for you. The rooms are extraordinarily clean, but tired... More

This is a Catholic guest house open to travelers. Nice hotel accommodations. Room was clean. They even provided ear plugs since windows faced street -- but we were so tired that we didn't notice. Computers with internet in one of the lobby rooms. Wi-fi, tv. Nice, helpful staff. Breakfast buffet on site for $9 extra.

Great location. Nice area of NYC (Chelsea). As long as you are aware that you are booking budget accommodation then you should be fine. We had the double room with private bathroom. It had everything that we needed for our 5 night stay. Bathroom was in a bit of disrepair with grout missing & a few cracked tiles. Laundry facilities... 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.
