It was indeed small but we expected it for the price in NYC. It was in a great location close to Union Square and lots of places. There was lots of parking around. You have 2 bathrooms for half a floor of like 8-12 people but aside from one morning it wasn't too busy. The bathrooms were very clean and... More

This was a basic hotel inside an old building which gave it a nice feel. The workers are friendly and keep the place well kept. If you're traveling in a budget look here it's also in a great location! While there make sure to try the local diner and enjoy union square!

I stayed here for four days and it was ok. My room was small but it was across from the bathroom so that was a benefit. The location was great both in terms of reaching shopping areas and to and from the airport. I would recommend here for someone on a shoe string budget who wants to experience New York... More

Great location. Otherwise rather unimpressive establishment. Loo down the hall. Bed is way to soft for two people to sleep comfortably, think of a bouncy castle and you get the picture. No rolling shutters and very flimsy blinds. All in all a bit pricy for what it is at $150 a night, but that's NY for you.

If you are comfortable with shared restrooms, a smallish room, and either a slow elevator or a winding staircase, then you will no doubt have the mindset to be quite content with the relative bargain and location. The walk to subway, bagels, and farmers' market was just fine. We came to NY to squeeze a couple of Lonely Planet days... More

Hotel 17 is a great choice if you are staying with friends for a few days. Shared bathroom and simple rooms, but the location is great, close to everything. And very cheap compared to other hotels in the city.

I'll admit that I don't particularly like the "bathroom down the hall" hotels, but I like a bargain, so I stayed here for two nights because the price was good. This hotel was clean and quiet, and the front desk staff was always pleasant and attentive. No issues with the shared bath, in fact, only once did I even see... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Hotel 17 for two nights this week and were very impressed. It's a unique hotel with a lot of character yet current amenities. The rooms were old-school cool with a bowl sink and a safe. The A/C worked great, the shared bathroom was always available and always clean. The staff was professional and... More

I was pleasantly surprised about everything at the hotel. I had done my research, so I knew that the bathroom was in the hall. I did have some trepidation about that, having never been in a hotel before that I shared a bathroom, as well as the expected size of the room. But since I was traveling solo this trip,... More
