Urine. I am sure it was some accident, and I am sure it is fine now, but our visit was hard to take. I don't mind having the bathrooms down the hall, shared, but GETTING to the room curled eyelashes. Having said that, it was a short walk from the 14 street-union square subway stop. Quiet neighborhood. Pretty woodwork. Room... More

What a great location in Manhattan, very close to Union Square so easy access to the subway. Room was as pictured and accommodated exactly as booked. Our one surprise was that the bathrooms are shared. I thought I had read enough reviews but I missed this gem somehow. So in caps: SHARED BATHROOM. There was a sink in our room... More

Stayed in a single bed, shared bathroom (never had a problem running into other guests). Friendly and helpful staff. A little expensive for what it was however it is NYC! Would stay here again. Location is right by Union Square (several restaurants/parks/train station) nearby

This hotel was a pleasure to stay in. Clean, wonderful location in the centre of New York City with a host of great food and drink options nearby. Great vintage lift. Hotel 17 had busy and helpful staff!

stayed in here for a week... then went for couple of days to Canada and came back to NYC. I decided with my friend that we want to go back to Hotel 17. OK priced hotel with shared bathrooms and small room but liked the atmosphere! Nothing too fancy.

This was our first trip to New York and was very satisfied with the hotel. I had my apprehensions about sharing a bathroom with others but the bathroom was always clean and available when needed. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay here in the future.

This is a lovely old building. The rooms and shared bathrooms are very clean and comfortable, though tiny. Lots of nice old architectural detail.The neighborhood could not be better. Right on the L train and close to 14th street/Union Square station where you can pick up a number of other lines. Next door to the East End synagogue, right near... More

When I stayed at Hotel 17, I ran into a lot of Europeans, and it is easy to understand why. The hotel appears to have previously been a boarding house, as the rooms have sinks in them, but no toilet or showers - those are down the hall. This is not an issue - both mornings I needed the shower,... More

I was very happy with my stay, was my first time at this hotel. I stay before at the Y Vanderbuilt and the Americana Inn. This is a good option for solo traveller, good location near 3rd Avenue, and Alphabet city streets and Lower East Side. Clean and spacy room. Wil stay there again.
