“Comfortable and safe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

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. Air con in the room. Shared toilets were never a problem, they were always clean. We found it to be pretty quiet as well.

By Manhattan standards, this hotel is a bargain. The rooms are clean and attractive in a quaint way. Currier and Ives prints on the wall, sink and shower in the room. Having a toilet in the hall was not a big inconvenience. The hotel is very clean and genteel inside, with antique photos on the walls, and a small sitting area on the ground floor. The location is relatively quiet, mid-block on a side street, facing a public school, so there isn't much noise on weekends. Complimentary coffee and tea in the morning is a nice touch. There are lots of take-out places within a half block to augment the coffee/tea. The building is a Georgian style townhouse with a stoop for sitting and watching the scene.

I really enjoyed my time at the Chelsea Lodge. The room was clean and well-designed, and I appreciated that there were two toilets on my floor as well as a spiffy in-room shower. I'm from the midwest suburbs, so I did think that it was noisy to have a room facing the street, but that's probably just me. There was early-morning coffee (after 7:30) and quick subway access. Perfect for a business traveler on a budget.

Great room, very comfy. Desk agent carried my heavy suitcase up to the third floor. Very convenient location at a great price. Would definitely stay here again, either on my own or with my partner (in a bigger room, which I did not see in person but noticed on the website).

I absolutely loved staying here. The location was pretty good - very close to a subway entrance and on the same street as a convenience store in case you need anything. It felt very safe there, and we were able to park right outside the door and not pay a dime (in New York!) The room itself was quite small, as is every room in NYC, but the price was so much better than other places! The only "downside" is that you share 2 bathrooms that are in the hallway with other guests (European style) - although I never saw this as a problem because the toilets were spotless and right outside your door and there was always one open when you needed it. You do have a sink and shower inside your room, which is nice. The TV was small, but who cares? You're in New York! They also leave you Hershey kisses and the guy working there was super nice. I would go back in a heartbeat.
