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

Cute little place with nice staff and perfect location on Manhattan. But there are some serious problems with this place. 1. THE BEDBUGS!! Me and my friend got totally demolished by them.. 2. The shower. Every time we flushed the toilet it started bubbel up hair and dirt in the bathtub.

Dear Guest, Of course you can imagine how disappointing it is for us to hear that you were not able to enjoy our establishment. We wish you would talk to us about the problems while staying over, not after checking out. Especially we appreciate your information about “bedbugs” (if they were bedbugs). You left and never said anything about them.... More

this place is desperate need of a full refurb, I auctually think the building is unsafe on 1 side as it slants to one side, there is not much in the area, Apart from people pushing trolleys of rubbish up and down town, the bed room was just Vile not fit for a pig, was not worth the cheap price...

It is cheap as far as NYC goes but badly needs renovation and a good cleaning. First night we had a clogged shower drain; our neighbors (we shared a bathroom) clogged the toilet a few nights later. There was also lots of early morning street noise from trucks unloading and construction. Seriously, I at least want to sleep in a... More

A pretty damn great place. The lobby is easy to navigate and the front door secure. This is a consistently nice and affordable New York hotel. We were able to walk to Manhattan in 15-20 minutes without breaking a sweat. If walking isn't your style, there is a Citibike stand less than a block away. The rooms were clean and... More
