This is really about the room which was barely bigger than the bed. It has a sink which spares you some trips to the communal bathroom (one per floor). That said the premises are maintained clean, including the bathroom, so it's not a horrific experience. As I have almost nothing to review about the room (not even a closet), it... More

If you want to save some money when in NYC (and I run a not for prof, so I do) this is the place! This is a quiet brownstone, lovely area, and super nice staff. Brand new remodeled bathroom in my room, fireplace, large bed and small TV. Extra for wi-fi, but so what, amazing breakfast and great coffee. Good... More

I was very excited to be coming to Colonial House Inn as I lived two doors down from 318 in my early twenties. When I arrived I found the staff member to be aloof and distracted by my appearance and needs. I found I had a four floor walk up. That was not a problem except for my luggage. The... More

To be honest, I would prefer to write a really bad review, just to make sure the hotel does not get pricier or fully booked next time I am in NYC. :-) The staff was as friendly and supportive as I could hope for (well, the blond lady at the reception was a bit reserved the first evening, but then...

We stayed at the Colonial House during a cool spell in July 2014. The rooms we got (in the West End Suite) were, although far from cheap, bigger than anything we expected to get in New York City at a price we could afford, with a large bedroom, good sized sitting room, small kitchen and private bath and shower. The... More

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...
