you can go wrong with hotels in New York. with the Selina Chelsea you do a lot right. not a huge chain, but small, stylish, cool, charming - with great service from very committed employees. Located in the midst of galleries, within walking distance to the Hudson and right on the Highline Trail, the Selina is perfect for that special New York visit. thanks Especially to Kikko

It’s not pretending to be a luxury hotel, but there is a really friendly vibe at that location. The situation is amazing and the food is great. We wanted a break in the city and were delighted with our choice! The rooms are a little small but in the end it was pretty comfortable.

TLDR; This Selina is NOT worth the money - at least other hotels in NYC are clean and I felt safe staying there. I'll start with positives - I was able to check in early and being close to the Highline is cool. I also have traveled with Remote Year (which Selina owns) so I had a 10% off discount code, but even with the code it was not worth the headache. I won't be staying there again. Cleanliness first - there was a giant dead bug stuck to the blackout curtain, long red hairs on the shower curtain (I don't have red hair), and I almost slipped and fell walking out of the shower because the concrete floors are slippery. So even based on that, I wouldn't stay there again - but the reason I'm writing a review at all is because of the safety issue. Important context: I'm a woman and I was in NYC traveling alone for work. Again, I was able to checked-in at 10:30am my first day - so once I checked in I dropped my bag and went to work. Came back later that night after grabbing dinner with some friends, got into bed, but around 11:30pm there's a knock at the door. A man's voice yells "Hello, are you Dana?" that's not my name, so I reply from bed that I'm not. He continues,"This room is reserved for Dana" and I reply "I've been checked in since this morning" . He continues, "I'm from the front desk and this room is reserved for Dana" - at this point, I'm nervous. I tell him that I didn't call the front desk, and no one had called to let me know someone was coming up. I told him to ask whoever was working that morning about it because I'm going to sleep and repeat again that I checked in that morning. He leaves. The next day, walking past the front desk as I was leaving for the day, I wave and say hello to the woman at the front desk. She doesn't say anything about what happened the night before, and I thought it was a weird fluke so I push it out of my mind and go about my day. After work, I went out with some friends, and got back late - around 1:30am - and no one was at the front desk. I make sure the door is bolted/locked again and fall asleep late (around 3am). At 7:30am the following morning I jolt awake to loud banging on the door - like really loud, the floor is concrete so there's nothing to absorb the sound. The same male voice from the night before is at the door again, but now there is a woman with him. He says "This isn't your room". I'm half asleep, delerious, exhausted and was just woken up to a strange man banging on my door AGAIN and yelling that this isn't my room - so I'm also annoyed. I say (again) that I had been checked in since 2 days prior and that I was checking out that morning. The woman chimes in, says it's a security issue, and that I need to be out by 10am, to which I remind her is standard/normal check out time. I couldn't fall back asleep, so I packed up my things and checked out at 9:30am. At check out, the woman at the front desk has a realization when I told her my room number. I tell her that it was ridiculous that I had been woken up at 7:30am, that I hadn't slept, and that I a strange man had knocked on my door the first night at 11:30pm - I told her I didn't feel safe staying there. She repeated that there was a security issue because they never verified my identity when I checked in (I gave my ID at check in and also checked in on the app prior to arrival). Apparently, they had been trying to call the room multiple times - the 2 phones in the room never rang. She asked for my confirmation code and ID, and she remembered checking me in and taking down my info, and then apparently everything was fixed "in the system". She then offered to comp the "resort fees" the next time I stayed there. I informed her, again, that I didn't feel safe and that I wouldn't be staying there again. And that I would be contacting Selina about the entire situation. Again, not worth it - stay at another hotel in Chelsea or NYC - there are so many better options.

We loved the restaurant. We had three fabulous dishes, with the Guac being really cool. Also had Ceviche and Fish Tacos. All were first class and I would go back for this in an instant. Also, the outdoor dining spot was nice...as was the indoor area. Cost for the three dishes and a soft drink was $58 before tip.

We stayed at the Selinas in South America and we were quite pleased by the experience, so when researching hotels in NYC we thought it would be a good option. We were very wrong. Apart from the fact that every single day we needed to contact the reception and change our key cards because they were not working, we were not informed that breakfast was included with our reservation and we were paying 20 dollars for an avocado toast. The breakfast offered is a croissant with fruit, which is very very limited for a 4* hotel. Moreover, we found a mouse in our room, next to our pillows and we were moved to the suite for a night, however, we did not think that this was compensation enough. We contacted the front desk about this issue but we never heard back from the. The only upside of this hotel is that some of the staff working at the reception are pleasant and joyful, however, it does not compensate for the bad management of the situation. Moreover, my friend had booked a room with them during the same dates of my stay and after she checked in the following situation occurred. The front office clerk did not register her in the system, therefore the room appeared as available and they double booked it to another desk. They proceeded to enter the room and take 'whatever was visible' of her stuff and gave the room to another guest. All of her makeup was left in the room as well as 1 suitcase and a small bag. This is unacceptable and completely unprofessional of them. I would never return to this hotel and i would not recommend it to anyone. Very poor professional behaviour.

My husband and I had a 24 hour layover in NYC and this stay was perfect! It was within walking distance of the Empire State Building and Times Square and had an amazing rooftop with city views. We didn't get a chance to eat at the restaurant on the first floor but there was always people in there and it looked great. Our room was also nice and clean.

I stayed here about 2 weeks ago and had such a wonderful visit! My best friend and I had stayed here previously in August and came back for round two and was not disappointed! Their staff is helpful and kind, especially Martin who truly went above and beyond for us! He was very professional, helpful and accommodating. The location of this hotel is perfect and sits right below the High Line so it's perfect for a scenic walk or morning jog. The bar at this hotel is awesome and makes amazing drinks! We will definitely be back. Thank you Selina Chelsea!

I stayed one night at the Selina Hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The rooms are compact and the bed extremely comfortable and no hotel or outside noise to run a much-needed night's sleep. I didn't try the restaurant but I will next time. Most of all though, it was Adam at the front desk who made the biggest impression. He was both professional and friendly and made me feel extremely welcome. Whenever I visit the City again, I will definitely choose The Selina!

Room is the size of a closet. Mattress is on the floor making it very uncomfortable getting out of the bed. TV doesn't work. Bathroom sink is so tiny you can barely walk your face. Hotel staff was useless I'm addressing problems. I would suggest staying somewhere else.
