We really enjoyed this charming old-fashioned hotel adviced by "Guide du Routard" which is ideally located a bit away from New York busy areas but very close to everything. We were accommodated first in the Paradise Suite Garden which is really nice with an awesome jacuzzi and a small garden but no kitchen at all (should be specify in ads).... More

I loved my comfortable room with its large bed and crisp sheets. I loved my renovated bathroom. I loved the friendly staff in this inn where breakfast is free and where they booked me a car to JFK for a very good tarif. I loved the quiet street where this inn is situated near to Chelsea market and the Midtown... More

This property needs a serious makeover. The rooms look like they were done in the 90's and have not been updated. The only plus to this property is the location. Be warned there is no elevator so if do have to stay here get a ground floor room.

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
