Well, I liked chelsea Inn because it provided what they promised. The one bad thing was a really loud heater, which woke me up all night during 3 days, making noise and getting the floor wet. But, for new years eve, in manhattan, it was great price and a good staff.

Always stay here in NYC. I don't mind the shared bathroom. Never have run into the other room occupants. It appeals to my sense if efficiency. The bathroom is empty 23 hours a day!!! Location is close to shopping, subway, busses, easy walk to 14th and union.

This is not a smart hotel but there was no attempt in any of the descriptions we read, to deceive. Fittings are old and faded but functional. Our room (401) was really a slice of what had been once part of a much larger room and the bed was so snugly fitted in that there was no space for bed... More

The Chelsea Inn was a perfectly good place to sleep while in NYC for a couple of nights. Its an old building and has some cosmetic flaws. It has the feeling of an apartment building than so than a boutique motel, so don't let the web site images mislead you. I think this helps explain some of the negative reviews.... More

Read some pretty bad reviews, and was worried we had made a poor choice for our New York stay. But in our opinion, the Chelsea Inn is a great choice for cost-conscious people who prefer to spend their money on restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. We stayed in a room with an en-suite bathroom, and was pleasantly surprised by the size... More

When I read some of the negative reviews some people (total ignorants) write about this hotel, it really makes me wonder what some people expect, considering what they're paying; take it from a very experienced traveller, who has been all over the world, THIS PLACE IS AWESOME!

I've seen some bad reviews of the place but I can only put it down to unattainable expectations. It's not the Ritz, but equally wasn't Fawlty Towers either. The receptionists were by and large friendly and helpful, one let us use the phone to call BA about a lost bag and was very helpful. The rooms were cleaned daily and... More

For us - this was the perfect hotel. We are a couple in our 30's, and prefer to spend our money on gourmet food and drinks, shows, shopping, and other activities in NY. We spend very little time in the room, and basically need a quiet and comfortable place that is close to our favorite parts of NY where we... More

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
