It's HOOOORRRRRRRRIIIIIIBLE. The Selina hotel brand seems to be about being Young! And Fun! And Having Adventure! That's fine. In the event, the hotel is overpriced and really bad. With the room they're going for a boho-chic kind of feeling but it's just cheap and uncomfortable - no expense has not been spared - it actually feels sub-IKEA. There's nowhere to work in the room - you have to go to bars with their relentless ever-throbbing house music. The staff also seemed to be whatever could be cobbled together. It's really, really unimpressive. Now you know!

I'm glad I ignored the bad reviews. I found The Selina to be an exceptional value for the location and experience. The staff was terrific, and the free welcome drink was a real treat - the margarita option was a very quality cocktail, not a cheap mix. Most importantly I appreciate they don't extort pet owners with exorbitant extra fees and were truly welcoming to my pup (we were in town for an AKC event at the Javits Center). Also the morning coffee in the lobby was a really good brew - I normally would go out to one of the many specialty cafes for coffee, but was more than happy with the complimentary cup. The room was small, as are most NYC rooms at this price point. I did not have a problem with noise other than the to be expected occasional street noise which was barely discernible. Music from the lobby area traveled up the elevator shaft but could not be heard inside the room. While I could hear the sound of other room doors opening and closing, I find that to be fairly common in hotels and was not bothered by it, nor was my dog. The room temperature was easily adjustable. I did initially feel a draft and some cool air but soon realized the window had been left partially open. I will definitely be back to the Selina for the AKC event next year- the proximity to Javits and Hudson Yards without being in the gritty really busy Times Square area was perfect.

Hotel is dirty and is NOT a 4-star hotel. More like 0 stars! The TVs and phones don’t work and there’s a smell in the rooms and hallways AND the bathroom was dirty upon check-in. We were in 2 different rooms and they were both disgusting. Ended up cancelling the reservation and leaving about 15 min after check-in. Do NOT stay here.

The rooms were small and the beds were on the floor. People were screaming in the hallways and yelling in the streets as the basement of the hotel has an underground club. During checkin the person was disinterested and did not even acknowledge that we were there. When we asked him if he can hold our bags he gave us an attitude.

We were very disappointed with the hotel. The photos do it so much justice. 4 stars I think not. No bar or tea making facilities in room. Our room was cool no matter how high the heating was on. Staff were pleasant. Home a week and still haven’t received our deposit back.

First of all, the mattress is literally on the floor. The towels are very poor quality. You do not get a hand towel, then finally the toilet paper feels like Sand PAPER; any where this chain can save a DIME they save a DIME for profit at your EXPENSE

Right from the get-go, the staff made me feel super welcome. They were all smiles and super helpful - a big thumbs up to them! My room was spacious and comfy. They’ve really got the clean and cozy vibe down to a T. And let's talk about the rooftop - “Creatures at Selina” is the place to be. Amazing views of the city, cool drinks, and a chill atmosphere made it the perfect spot to unwind after a day of exploring. Honestly, this place has everything you want in a city hotel. Cool, clean, and friendly. If you're in Chelsea and looking for a place to stay, Selina’s got you covered. Will definitely be coming back here next time I'm in NYC!

I stayed here for one week, during which time they had two events that went until 4am. I was on the 7th floor and the music was loud enough to be bothersome. Also the rooms are smaller than they appear in their photos online. I won’t stay here again.

Response from Selina Management Global, Revenue Management at Selina Chelsea
Responded Nov 8, 2023
Hi Madeleine, I’m sorry to hear about your experience and that our Chelsea location didn’t meet the level of service we strive for. Since it was Halloween weekend, we had two events held on 26th and 27th of October. We advertised these events on our website, and we also sent out a notice of the event before it took place. We understand that this can be an inconvenience to some of our guest and we were very flexible with our cancellation policy and offering other forms of compensations such as relocation. We appreciate your feedback as this helps us improve in the near future. Please know that we will be addressing this review with the team so we can learn from it and do better. Thanks & Regards,

The hotel was ok. I had been tossing up between a few in the area with similar pricing and Selina was the cheapest (but not by too much) and it looked modern. We stayed in a standard and felt it wasn’t worth the price we paid. Wish we had splurged just a couple extra dollars for another hotel. The restaurant across the road is really good though and the location in general is good. Walkable and close to public transport. The room was clean enough but felt a bit off, and also lots of things were broken like light switches. Also they took $100 for incidentals at check in which is fine (they also took a resort fee that was never listed anywhere, $50). But a week after check out, the $100 was still being held. So I contacted them and they said it would be returned within 5-6 days max. 3 weeks later and it is still being held. I contacted them again and they have not answered. Considering they responded almost immediately up until it had to do with them keeping my money, it’s a bit shady. Would love a response.

Nice hotel well located. Felt safe around the area. Super close to the Highline, The Edge, Vessel, Chelsea Market, Hudson Yards and so many other great places to visit in NYC <3 The food was good, the staff friendly and always willing to help, mainly the front desk staff. I did miss the activities other Selinas usually offer like yoga. Our room was clean, spacious and well equipped. Anyways, we would definitely recommend!
