“Great location, good rate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

This was a great place to stay. It is only a few blocks from Central Park and a nice walk (a bit over a mile) to Times Square. Very close to so much, yet it was in a quiet neighborhood and felt like we were away from the touristy noise and crowds. The room was smaller than normal, but it was clean and comfortable. The staff was incredibly helpful and were ready to answer any questions we had about what to do and where to go. We are already planning another trip here in the future. Oh, the price was also much less than what was comparable in the area. My biggest complaint was that it took housekeeping most of the day to get to our room, but even that wasn't a big deal. It would be nice to have room service or a place to eat on site, but there are many markets in the neighborhood and with a fridge in the room, it was not much of a problem!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

We arrived at the Belleclaire after requesting an early check in and a room on a high floor. There was no room ready for us, which was fine really as I'm sure they were busy but it would have been nice to have had the option to freshen up before we headed out for the day.
When we returned to check in to our room there was no mention of our request and we were put on a low floor so the noise in the morning was a little annoying since the windows are not well sealed.

We could not complain about the size of the room though, it was a good size for a NYC hotel although a very small bathroom. The bed was comfy and it was great to have free wifi.

On checkout we asked for a taxi to Penn Station but the hotel doesn't have a local cab firm to contact so we ended up waiting on the street for quite a while for a cab to be flagged down which meant a mad dash to get our train!

All in all I would stay here again if you are after somewhere a bit quieter. Plus there is a market close by on Sundays and it is close to Central Park.

We booked two rooms at the Belleclaire, one for myself, my husband(we got married while there), son(14months, no bath which for his age wasn't good) and my mother, another for my brother and sister in law.
Both rooms were great, clean, well equipped.
Travel cot supplied which was wonderful!

Our two down sides to this hotel were the heating(noisey & you have no control over it) and the outside noise(yes I know NYC is like that but I've been before but this was unreal) the windows are old and hold out nothing!


Staff were lovely, lobby was beautiful, and the hotel couldn't have been in a better location :-)

Great Hotel, Great part of town.
You got the NYC experience, while also feeling comfortable and safe.
Staff was Great, from front desk check -in, to hailing cabs, to holding an unbrella for us as we came and went. Stayed back in November, and would likely stay here again!

Highly disappointed, I had a may e-mail for 30% of room rate if book by May 31st... I forgot to do it and remembered 1 minute past midnight. I ran to get my phone and found the number and called and asked if the rate could still be honored, and was told no it was too late...four minutes too late. ): Really upset.
I have stayed here before and enjoyed it.

This hotel was in a great location for everything in New York without the huge price of staying right in the city. It was a ten minute walk to Central Park, half an hour walk to Times Square and a five minute walk to the Subway to take you anywhere!!
When checked in we were given room 208 which was not what I expected. The room itself was fine apart from the very strong smell of cleaning fluid (smelt like nail polish remover) which I'm guessing someone with asthma might have problems with, but the toilet in the bathroom was not useable due to there being a wall right in front of it. You would be ok if you had really short legs or if you didn't mind sitting sideways!
After a little British complaining, we were given room 722 which was perfect. A lovely clean bed, air conditioning, a fridge and large TV. There was a shower big enough for two which was again lovely and clean. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, especially the door staff who came out to check on us when our return shuttle hadn't arrived.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe!
