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

Dear Sir/ Madam Thank you for taking your time to write a review. I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us.

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! First of all, we're talking frigging New York City here, but not only... More

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

We stayed here for a week and where very surprised about the great standard for a a good price. Breakfast was at the coffee shop next door which had the greatest bagels!

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

I stayed in a suite which had 2 beds, a bathroom and a kitchenette. It was located opposite reception so I did not have to negotiate the stairs. However, there are lots of them. This was clear on the website but the stairs are steep and narrow and I can imagine that they would be difficult to negotiate with big... More

Horrible experience at the Chelsea Inn August-September 2014. I strongly recommend against staying at this Inn if you have a fear of cockroaches or mice. The Inn was a pleasant place to stay three years ago, but it's changed for the (MUCH) worse. Although we booked and paid for a private room/ensuite bathroom, they got our reservation wrong and downgraded... More

Do not stay at the Chelsea Inn. We had an absolutely terrible experience in Aug/Sept 2014. The first room we were assigned (which was of lesser value than we paid for due to their error) had a MOUSE running around in it. While we complained to the front desk agent, a dead cockroach was on the carpet beside the front... More

I have never written a review in my life time for the good or bad. However, it was beyond a nightmare. It was a creepy place as soon as we entered the door. It was like a dirty old haunted castle. We checked in, paid and walked into a room that was not cleaned yet and the staff didnt know... More
