We were visiting NYC for the weekend and were searching for accommodations that were reasonably priced, included breakfast, and were located in the heart of the city. The Colonial House Inn is located on a small tree-lined street in the Chelsea neighbourhood of Manhattan, far away from all of the standard tourist traps where you are more likely to pay... More

We stayed here for 7 nights - I'm not sure if I just love New York and this place gets extra points for simply being host to my experience but whatever the case it was a great location in Chelsea, half a block from Metro subway, there's great dining or quick food options very close, it's close enough to Greewich...

We just returned today after spending 3 nights at the Colonial House Inn. We paid a little extra for our own bathroom and it was well worth it. We also lucked out with a room facing the back. It was peaceful and wonderful to awake to the sound of birds instead of traffic. It was hard to believe we were... More

My stay at the Colonial House Inn was brief this time, but I stayed there for a week several years ago. Price is very low for the quality and location you get. Nice little rooftop area, simple and yummy continental breakfast to grab on your way out each morning, and a block and a half from the subway that will... More

This has been one of my favorite sorta "economy" place to stay in NYC for years. While all the rooms do not have private baths the shared and private baths are always cleaned exceptionally well...I note when I use the shared baths never a problem sharing and always sterile and clean. Access fo so many subways very nearby makes this... More

Nice garden area to sit and review the day prior to going to dinner with unlimited choices. We walked to Chelsea Markets that same afternoon, then... More

Despite having such a small room we were very happy as after all i usually care about is a comfy bed - tick, and a great location - tick. We shared a bathroom on our floor with one or two others which was not an issue and the sink in the room was very handy especially over new years and... More

This is a nice old hotel. It is in an old 4 storey building. It is a friendly place. The continental breakfast is very good with a variety of cereals, boiled eggs, bread etc etc. Wifi is a bit slow, but OK. Since it is a very old house, it doesn't have an elevator so you have to carry your... More

We love staying in guest houses when traveling, and found Colonial House Inn charming. A fourth-floor walkup in a lovely old brick building, located in a Chelsea residential neighborhood. We stayed in room 28 on the fourth floor, with a large private bathroom and queen size bed. (Though, the community bath was actually right outside our door.) We had a... More

I don't know why anyone would want to stay in midtown Manhattan when the charms of Chelsea are so easily had when staying at the Colonial House Inn. I have stayed at Colonial House Inn on my last two trips to NYC and will stay again. It is comfortable, clean, and convenient.
