I stayed here every time I came to New York. It's great value for being in central Manhattan. Location is great, right next to Union square. Rooms were clean and tidy every time I stayed there. Staff were nice but not overdosing on attention. Facilities are limited. The room was really small, but all right for a short stay. Bathrooms... More

Location was superb in a nice street, well serviced. Very Clean and helpful personal. Shared bathrooms are most of the time clean and in order. When it was not in good conditions was because the previous user but you can damm the hotel for this. Something you can expect from a shared bathroom solution.

It's hard to give Hotel 17 a bad review because it's such a charming place to stay. Wonderful old building, wood panelling, the old-fashioned elevator make the stay feel very Old World, or at the very least, Old New York. The staff here are also wonderfully helpful and friendly. Be warned though - the facilities are BASIC. The rooms are... More

We enjoyed staying at Hotel 17 very much. The old fashioned elevator was really cool and the overall style of the place was European and comfortable. We didn't mind the shared bathroom down the hall which served several rooms. There was never any wait or interference. It was great to have a sink in our room for brushing teeth and... More

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.
