This hotel is on a busy street, but quiet. It is discretely located not too far from the main attractions but within walking distance of the cool spots where you can eat and drink. The accommodation is comfy, homely and clean. The staff and owners were excellent hosts and I wouldn't see any reason not to book at this place... More

the rooms are styled for the beginning of the 20th century and have a certain atmosphere (it is a pity the blankets have holes or stains). unfortunately the AC is so loud, it is almost impossible to sleep, the rooms have inadequate lighting so it is difficult to read. you cannot open the window because the AC is in it....

This hotel has it all! The rooms are huge - with a sitting area as big as the bedroom, the library is charming, the staff are friendly and the location is ideal for up or down town. It was well-priced compared to other hotels and they were happy to hold our luggage for the day. There are a few vagrants... More

We stayed at the townhouse inn as we were looking for a place near Madison square garden comfortable for 3 adults-mom and 2 twenty-somethings. We have spent lots of time midtown and uptown, but this was our time to enjoy the Chelsea and downtown area. The location was perfect. Walkable to all our interests (msg, high line, Madison park) and... More

We really enjoyed our short stay at this lovely bed and breakfast. This was my first time in NYC, and I'm so glad we stayed here compared to a big box hotel. It might not have the amenities other hotels offer, but honestly I never use most hotel's amenities anyway. This was a much more personal experience. Eric was so... More

Having traveled and lived in Europe, this in felt like coming home to a pensione! Eric and Ryan were extremely welcoming. The breakfast was exactly the right amount of food to start the day. The location was extremely convenient to the subways to explore all NYC had to offer. Will recommend to traveling friends in the future.

What a great find! This little hotel is right in the midst of Manhattan, and yet was very reasonably priced. The room is very clean, nicely decorated, and spacious by Manhattan standards, with a private bathroom. The bed is comfy, and free Wi-Fi is nice. Eric, the host, is super friendly and eager to help us in any way. In... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
