“We will return, great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We stayed twice 3 nights before and 6 nights after a trip to Europe. The rooms are quite varied, we paid extra for a King Deluxe with a view and because we had a longer stay the bigger room was well worth it. The staff is outstanding, friendly and helpful. They even offered to save the room we had for our first stay for us on the second stay which we gladly accepted. The location is fabulous on the upper West Side with a subway stop two short blocks away and many attractions, restaurants, shopping within walking distance. We have allergies and appreciated the no smoking policy, windows that open, hardwood floors in the rooms. There were no dressers or drawers in the nightstands but we got a second luggage rack and a closet with a hanging fabric shelf so that was fine. Plenty of hot water for showers though at times it took a few minutes to get hot, a big bathroom with a window that opened which was great. We go to New York at least once a year and we will return to the Belleclaire.

This is probably my new go to for staying in NYC.
Great location on the Upper West side. Very relaxed. Comfortable clean room, flat screen, mini fridge, etc. Everything you need.
Room is smallish, but typical for Manhattan. Lobby has a great design. Everyone was super nice.
Skip the midtown hassle and save yourself some cash by staying here.

I've stayed here a few times and the staff is really helpful. The service is great for a middle level hotel. Remember that there are approximately 50% taxes on hotels in NY, so if the room is not quoted including the tax, add another 50% to it. The lobby is nice, and always busy. Instead of coffee there is always iced tea with and without sugar.

If $300-400 is your price range all in, this is great for Broadway and 77th.

Room Tip: Try the back of the building facing west for the lowest noise.

Stayed Memorial Day Weekend. Nicely styled room, clean, with an excellent staff. LG flat screen, WiFi, fridge, and the bed has that cool red headboard. Bathroom is small but that isn't unusual for a boutique. Ice tea in the lobby, no in house restaurant.

In this area you have a little bit of everything you need nearby, or about a few train stops away. That Sunday there was even a street fair on Broadway all the way down to 72nd street. Your selfish side might not even want to share this gem with your friends, but you be the better person. Grammar police forgive me for any typos ;-)

this hotel offers terrific value for money in a fantastic upper westside location in New York City. After checking in very early Juan at the front desk found me a room at 8:00am for a very reasonable 35 dollars which allowed us to get some rest before a hectic day. The room is great, as its been renovated, clean, functional and overall quite perfect. There is a noise issue of course if you look out to the street (which our did) but you know what...its NY and noise is part of the experience. You may want to request a room that doesn't face the street. The free Wi Fi worked perfectly well and its always appreciated. The Staff is VERY friendly and helpful and there is no complaints. This is an older building so there are issues sometimes if your neighbor happens to be active with their partner. our neighbor happened to be VERY active...couldn't help but laugh at the situation and eventually went to sleep in our very comfortable King bed. Overall we would definitely stay here again, it was great

Room Tip: get a room that doesn't face the street

this was a great little hotel, clean, close to grocery stores, an express subway stop to Times Square and reasonably priced. I couldn't have asked for more. when I return for another visit, i'll definitely stay here.

Room Tip: ask for a room with larger windows.

This hotel was perfect for my short business trip. The room was compact (as expected for a boutique hotel on this neighborhood), but clean and well-furnished, and they offered free internet. The staff was helpful and accommodating with storing luggage. Only downside: the water was not very hot. Luckily, I visited during a heat wave, so I didn't mind.

Thank you for the very positive review of your recent visit to the Hotel Belleclaire, conveniently located near Central Park! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. I am delighted to read your appraisal of our team, services and I know our staff will be equally pleased to learn of your kind remarks and recognition of their efforts. However, I am sorry that you had a less than exceptional experience and that there was an element of your stay (hot water) that you found needed improvement, and this will certainly be addressed and corrected.
