We spent 7 nights here in mid October 2014. It feels a little like camping. Room was hot some days so we had to open a window and run the fan but it made a comfy environment to sleep in. (NOTE: They ONLY use window AC units in summer months.) There were 2 toilets next to our room and we... More

First and foremost, NYC is one of the most expensive places to visit. That said, this lodge was great value for money. Stayed for 7 nights. Rooms are small but adequate. Located in a nice neighborhood of Chelsea which has good restaurants and an active nightlife. Despite the latter, once you are in the confines of your room, you can... More

We stayed in this lodge for 4 nights in mid-October. Our room is in the basement, close to the street. At first I worried about the noise, but it turned out the street is pretty quiet in the night. And in the morning before we went out it was interesting to watch people walking by above us, a new experience... More

We stayed for 6 nights in room 2E. The room is small but we had enough space, it was very quiet, even with the lodge being fully booked and the window open all the time. There are two bathrooms on the floor and one was always free, so not a problem whatsoever. Furniture etc. are rather old, but everything is... More

Thoroughly enjoyable stay at Chelsea Lodge - exceptionally good location for exploring everything NYC has to offer. Room clean, comfortable and great value - retro styling certainly a plus for this traveller. Staff unobtrusive and complimentary tea/coffee a morning bonus. Certainly felt away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but on a very pleasant streetin a lovely area.... More

Great small hotel in a quiet neigborhood. Chelsea Lodge is located near 8th Ave and West 20th St. Chelsea market is just a 15 min walk away and the 14th Street A train subway station is only 5-10 min by foot. Due to the central location in Chelsea, all of manhattan and the usual sights are only a 10-15 min... More

We recently stayed at the Chelsea Lodge for 10 nights. The hotel is on a quiet (for NYC) residential street in the heart of Chelsea and is a short walk to the ACE and 8 trains and the Highline. This is a budget hotel. Our room was small (but bigger than what you might get in London), but was also... More

I stayed at Chelsea Lodge for nine days. It was very close to everything. Several bus and subway stations are within walking distance. The room was tiny but it was enough for sleeping. Rooms are modest yet functional. Mine (3d) had a full size bed, tiny wardrobe and chest of drawers (both very useful!), in-site shower, a little TV and... More

We only had three days in NY so we packed a lot in and did not plan to stay in our room much. The Chelsea lodge was perfect for us- the only reason I did not give it five stars was the toilet was down the hall. We knew this going in and we never did have to wait for... More

Chelsea Lodge consists of two old converted row houses between 8th and 9th Avenues on West 20th Street, around the corner from the Joyce Theater. My room was large and comfortable with a private garden outside French doors. The walk-in closet and bath were spacious and the closet has a kitchenette in the back, with refrigerator, microwave, and dishes. The... More
