This is the third time I stayed at Hotel 17. As always the room was very clean, and so were the shared toilets and showers. You do have a small sink in your room, for quick wash up. Although this place is not for everyone, especially if you want your own, full bathroom, the location and price makes up for... More

This isn't a hotel for everyone, but if it's appropriate for you, then you are very lucky. You won't find another hotel in such a great location anywhere in NYC for this great a price. You get your own room, probably with a tv, possibly with a window overlooking the street all for a fraction of the price anywhere else.... More

this hotel is very well located, and for what you pay, it`s a great choice, specially if you are the kind of traveler who doesn`t stay in the room more than what you sleep, The only not so good thing is the shared bathroom, there is a rush hour, and it`s not clean... but anyway, I would recomend, I`m a...

Our hotel room was safe, quiet, clean and warm. The location is also very good. The internet connection drops often which other guests noticed. The staff are polite but not friendly which i noticed is the norm in Manhattan. We had 2 shared bathrooms on our floor which was fine but there was no mirror in one bathroom which makes... More

Stayed here in a pinch when work took me to New York for one day during the high tourist season. Everything was booked, but I lucked out when there was a cancellation at Hotel 17. Room was fairly small and there was a shared bathroom for the lowest rate, but the room was clean and decently furnished and I got... More

This was the 4th time I've stayed here and the 3rd time with my husband. It's right by Union Square and there is both Joe Jr's and a Gramercy Cafe just around the corner. The bathrooms are shared but in all the times I've stayed I've almost always found the bathroom freshly cleaned. Some of the rooms are very small,... More

Clean, quiet hotel located in Union Square. Close to East Village and Brooklyn. Bed was comfortable, not the best, but I only needed a place to stay for a quick, unexpected visit to the city. Staff very nice, shared bathrooms not bad, clean, well maintained.

This is my third stay at Hotel 17, and I recommend it to my colleagues who travel to NYC on business. It is a no-frills operation, and the rooms are small. (Tip: if you're tall, spend a few extra bucks for a double.) If you're looking for an included breakfast, a pool or a business center, this isn't the one.... More
