The Price they charge for your stay there is totally honest given the services they offer. The rooms are comfortable and clean enough (Even though the furniture is a bit old), And the position is awesome. The hotel is located in the nice neighbourhood of the Meatpacking District/Chelsea in Manhattan. On the 14th crossing 8th Ave, just a few metres... More

Book early to get Room #9. It is on the ground floor and roomy enough for two adults and two kids. Counter and cupboards. New bathroom. Was formerly a residence, now a hotel. Not cheap, but $300 per night on 14th Street and 8th Ave. isn't bad. Cross town bus stops directly in front. Subway station on corner. Staff courteous... More

Stayed for a week, the room wasn't anything fancy but was clean enough and had everything we needed. There is no elevator but the four flights of stairs at the end of each day didn't bother us too much! I think it's very good value for the price and let's be honest you're not there to spend time in the... More

The building is very old and the hotel rooms .The room was not cleaned and we found bugs. The hotel is in an EXCELENT location in Chealsea and the... More

I read the reviews after daughters boss booked room, they were bad, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt (brought my own old sleeping bag and blankets/pillow cases so wouldn't have to go under blankets just in case bed bugs comments were true) and went anyways. Room fairly good size and at first glance looked ok. Sketchy area!... More

Having been to NYC a number of times, to find somewhere so affordable and in a good location, I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised upon arrival to the hotel. We had the ground level room behind reception, it was very spacious for the three of us, by New York standards. The location was perfect, steps away from the... More

It is pretty cheap - let's get that out of the way. But there is a reason for it. We only needed it to sleep in, and we needed an air-con - check! So far so good. However, the shower facilities were rather disgusting and the towels smelled like they hadn't been washed for a while. Also I got a... More

This hotel has one of the best locations in new york. Not only you can get by subway and that station even has an elevator that leaves you 10 steps from the hotel door, its only walking distance to great restaurants, bars and shopping. The price is also great for new york

I booked a room with a private bath weeks ahead and when I arrived they put me in a room (5 story walk up) that had a disgusting bathroom that was hated with four other rooms. There was mold and feces in the bathroom and it looked like no one had cleaned it in weeks. The front desk staff was... 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.
