“Excellent location, clean, small rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Very good location near Union Square.
Tiny but clean rooms, toilets/shower in the corridor which were usually free and clean. Good hotel if you want a central base for your midtown stay.

Room Tip: Upper floors, so you don´t have to look at walls

The price was excellent, very close to subway stations and obviously you can walk anywhere if you have the inclination to! New York is expensive and this place for this price was great. Shared bathrooms, never a problem, they were clean and never busy; also you have a sink in your room and plenty of toiletry space. At the price we paid I would stay here again.

4th year in a row here, always clean, friendly.
Wifi throughout. Bathrooms are shared on corridors, rooms are New York sized, i.e. not huge, but on the edge of Union Square, and very nice.
Also they store your baggage free on last day, reception always very helpful.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay (4 nights) at Hotel 17 and will stay there again the next time I am in Manhattan. It's right near 3rd Ave and 17th St., just walk up 3rd to the subway and you can be anywhere in Manhattan very easily. The hotel is clean, quiet, and I enjoyed the semi-Edwardian decor and funky little old-fashioned elevator. The shared bathrooms were clean, no problems at all with that. There are restaurants, diners and bars within very close walking distance too. Room rates are very reasonable at Hotel 17, excellent value.

We were visiting NYC for a couple days before a friend's wedding in NJ. This was a great place to stay in manhattan. Great clean room, they get the shared restrooms clean, and the price was right and the location awesome. No problems and would certainly consider going back there again if we get to visit NYC anytime soon!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

Four of us stayed here between Dec 24 and 29th, two in a "triple", two in a "double" room. The triple had 2 beds, one a queen, the other a twin. Both had sinks. The double room had a double bed, so if you are two people used to a king or queen sized bed, you might find it small. But the beds were very comfortable, the rooms quiet (we were on the 8th floor in the B wing), with nice views. True, the wallpaper looks tired, the radiator knocks and pings a bit, the one elevator is tiny and slow, the lobby at bit dark, the rooms smallish - but this bothered us not one bit. The bathrooms are extremely clean and sharing them was no problem. Check in was prompt and friendly and the one issue we had with the TV was looked after right away. There's an ice machine on the 1st floor, but no restaurant, bar or even food machines. Plenty of stores and restaurants within a block though. Great location.

This hotel is a great value for your money. It's apx. 4 blocks from the subway and a Union square, but far enough away from the business to make you feel like your living in New York. The rooms were a great size for New York standards. Close to local restaurants and grocery stores. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would recommend this place to friends.
