Central location, easy to walk anywhere in Manhattan. Rooms are clean. Staff very friendly and supportive. Breakfast is ok and all in all, great value for money. Thank you very much to the team. Highly recommdable!
The room and facility was clean and well maintained. We enjoyed our stay at Leo House. Thanks so much for your ministry of hospitality to pilgrims visiting New York. The location is in a great part of the city with affordable parking nearby. Peace and Blessings.
I had a single room which had a desk, small closet and attached full bath. The linens were superb. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I was able to store my bag in a secure locked location both before my check in and after my check out. Super WiFi. A very generous and tasty breakfast. It was very convenient to the subway and to the High Line. A great experience all around. The value could not be matched in NYC.
The Leo House deserves a warm recommendation from us. I stayed 5 days in May with my daughter (15 years). This place is not a traditional hotel but a guest house. So if you expect daily cleaning, room service and other hotel amenities - this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for affordable accommodation in the middle of Manhattan - then you should definitely consider The Leo House. Rooms are spotless clean (but dated), beds are comfortable, wifi is excellent, breakfast (mon-fri) is good, staff members are welcoming and helpful, situation is perfect in a local Chelsea neighborhood - less than 100 meters from the subway. We will be back...
Not a real hotel. Staff were surly and uncommunicative. Building is antiquated and uncomfortable. Room was not serviced despite requests. Very hot weather with no air conditioning. Room right on 23rd street extremely noisy with emergency and service vehicles all night long. Breakfast included only on weekdays was adequate. If I was an impoverished student I might consider staying here vs. the YMCA but otherwise give this place a miss.
Very pleasant hotel, very strategically located to explore NYC. Close to it all, with subway on a few hundred meters, yet quiet and peaceful. Very friendly staff, rooms might look a bit tired, but all essentials are there. Very good bed, nice shower, breakfast at weekdays. We were here for our second stay (first stay in 2019) and we would return next time. Value for money is superb.
The affordable gem in Chelsea. The hotel is basic, and may look outdated, but is very clean all over. The staff is very friendly and the location is great. At weekdays the simple breakfast is included; it is nice to get a bagel/toast, scrambled eggs, something sweet and coffee before hitting the streets to explore the city. However, the gentleman serving the breakfast could use some lessons in hospitality.... The WiFi is very fast. Note, room 811 did not have airconditioning, even though it was advertised to have it.
I was extremely happy with my stay at the Leo House.The staff are all extremely nice & friendly.As a single woman I felt very safe. Chelsea is a safe area. Everyone must be buzzed in. No visitors are allowed upstairs, which keeps the noise down & safety up.There's a safe in the room.It's like a lot of the European hotels; you must leave your key at the front desk every time you leave the building.I stayed in a single room with a private bath overlooking the garden with church steeples popping out of the trees. It was very quiet. I was able to sleep soundly with the window open. The room was a decent size for NY. It's old & worn but it's priced accordingly. It was possibly the cleanest place I ever stayed. I moved the bed away from the wall, and even that area was spotless. For now they are cleaning the rooms every 4 days. You can get towels at the front desk or catch the maid in the hall.The bed was very comfy. The WiFi was unbelievably good. I had no issues streaming. Each room has their own modem & password. There are no surprises, no hidden fees.Breakfast is included during the week. It's the same hot dishes for weeks at a time. During my stay it was scrambled eggs and bacon. They offer the basics: cereal, OJ, coffee/tea, fruit, cakes, toast & bagels. The location is wonderful.There are multiple subway lines at the corner, more a block away and even more a few more blocks on 23rd. You can walk to Times Square in 20 minutes. The only negative is that the doors on the room are solid & heavy, and people keep banging them starting around 7:30. I found it difficult to sleep in. People do seem to go to bed early. Toiletries are limited here. There was only a small bar of soap and small shampoo in the room. I don't know if they replace them as I brought my own. I would definitely stay here again.Leo House works for me. This place isn't for everyone. They don't pretend to be something that they aren't. If you're particular you probably won't like it here.…
I've been to NY before but stayed in an Air BnB last time. This time around I was looking for a hotel in Manhattan. Not only was the price very reasonable but the neighbourhood is also unbeatable! You could walk the High Line or proceed to Midtown by foot. There's also a train station nearby, 7th and 6th are even more (which is 2 blocks away). I would look at the empire state every night I came back to the hotel :) Check In was good as well. There are some rules to the house, but they are fine. Also they have a mini library, a community room and cute little garden. The front desk personal was super helpful and friendly all the time! They would even borrow an umbrella to me as I wanted to head to the garden for a cigarette ;) Also you can borrow a hair dryer there and leave your luggage in a separate room on your departure day. My room was a single one. I had my own bath with tub and a comfy bed. Also there were a desk and 2 chairs as well as a small closet. Everything was super clean. You don't expect luxury and thats exactly what you get. The room could use a little renovation, like the tub was a little "bruised" but clean. For me thats perfectly fine. The bathroom is small but sufficient. The bed was comfy and had 2 pillows, which I always appreciate. There is another bedding in the closet so you won't be cold. In there is also a little safe. The room had a heater and a window facing the garden, so it wasn't loud at all. From time to time you would hear the FD but it wouldn't bother me since I was up on my feet the whole day and would go asleep the second I laid my head on the pillow :) The WiFi was great btw. Nearby are stores, restaurants and other amenities as well. Like I said, the location is perfect. Also I never felt unsafe traveling alone and coming back to the hotel at night. Speaking of safety: you'll leave your key to the front desk as you leave for the day. So in an emergency they would know how many guests are in. At first I thought this was weird but then it made sense. Also nobody can just enter the hotel, you'll have to ring a bell and they would buzz the door. The breakfast is complimentary and was very good! They had coffee, orange juice, eggs & bacon, Bagels etc. All in all it was such a great stay and I'll definitely come back!…
This is a basic Catholic guest house that's a delight, kind of place you want to keep to yourself! Prime location in Chelsea, quiet, friendly and helpful staff, full breakfast included, superb wifi, all at super-reasonable rates. It's not a Hilton, but it's not pretending to be one, either -- it's something very different, but I really enjoyed it.
