I've never been to NYC before. But had the chance to spend a week up there covering the CMJ Music Marathon. I was looking for a clean, safe place, centrally located, all at a reasonable price. This boutique hotel exceeded all expectations. Cozy place with desk, dresser, closet space, sink and shower (oh! and a TV). Kind of like staying... More

Chelsea is a fantastic area to be situated in and the Chelsea Lodge is right in the middle. It is value for money but the shared toilets, hard bed and inability to access the "free wifi" from the third floor room made for a stay that was not ideal. I did not find the staff overly friendly or helpful beyond... More

On the first night, we stayed in a deluxe room. Although it had its own bathroom and was very clean, it was too small and triggered my companion's claustrophobia. When I explained this to the staff, they found a suite that was available for the next night. The suite was extremely comfortable. Though the wifi was a bit spotty, I... More

We spent six nights at Chelsea Lodge and loved especially the neighborhood and fast travelling time to anywhere in NYC. The service was good. The only downside is the toilet outside the room. Given the location and the relatively low price I recommend it!

Well located, friendly staff, the bathroom outside the room wasn't a problem at all! Overall it was a great place to stay! The room is small and the air conditioner loud, but the benefits overcome these problems. The staff help with your luggage and the chelsea area is amazing!

My experience here was so-so and it's taken me awhile to write this review. I've concluded that I'm too old to share a bathroom and that I need more space. The back corner room was tiny with a twin bed, sink, shower, mini T.V. and little room to move. The shared bathroom was inconvenient in the middle of the night.... More

Loved this place! Great location, close to subway, Chelsea Market, and the Highline. Price was extremely reasonable. Felt like I was at home. I will definitely stay here again. The staff was very kind. Everything was clean and tidy. The kitschy decor made it cute and eclectic.

My son and I stayed there for night while sightseeing in New York. I was a bit skeptical at first, not knowing the city, but was pleasantly surprised how nice the Chelsea Lodge was! The owner was very nice and helpful. We had the downstairs room with a small kitchen and private bathroom. I would definitely recommend it - well... More

The Chelsea Lodge is a cute mix between a B&B and a hostel. It does offer showers in each room, which is nice, but floors share bathrooms, which is awkward if you need to pee in the middle of the night. The bed was not very comfortable. It was kind of hard, but it we were just happy to have... More

We booked the Chelsea Lodge because it seemed like the best value for money we could get as far as accommodation goes in NY. We found the location really convenient- short walk to heaps of food places, subway, shops etc. With the subway there it's very easy to see NY. The lodge itself was safe, tidy, and value for money.... More
