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

While very clean and good location near subway, there is no place to sit other than two chairs in the main area, which were taken up most of the time. I prefer somewhere where I can 'escape' for a quiet cup of coffee out of my room. That, they do not have. Wish it had a yard or patio! That... More

We stayed at this hotel for ten nights recently and enjoyed our stay. Location great and the old world charm of the hotel was lovely. But when I had a problem with my credit card it took five days to finally sort out. The main problem is the staff change almost daily and aren t equiped to deal with such... More

Our room, with shared bath, was very clean and comfortable. It overlooked the back of the building with a nice view of quiet backyard spaces. The building is old, with some original architectural details which added to it's charm. Right downstairs in the building next door is a small restaurant which is open both early and late. There is nothing... More

Is not the best hotel ever, but I have to admit that is really cheap, and just in the centre of Manhattan. I went with my boyfriend and we didn't have a really big budget so for us was good. You have the tube nearby and the reception is nice. I have to say that the cleaning was not good... More

For a one-night Manhattan mini-break this was perfect. I found it on booking.com and reserved a double room (one double bed) with shared bathroom for about $150, including tax. The staff was courteous about letting us leave our luggage in a locked closet before our scheduled check-in and again after our check-out, allowing us to wander Manhattan unencumbered while we...

The Chelsea Inn is an inexpensive place to stay in a great part of New York City. The less expensive rooms are of a hostel quality. Pay more and you do get more such as a private bath. The property was a little worn but it was clean and the front desk employees were helpful. There is a night club... More
