We have been visiting this inn for the past eight years and on every visit we have found them consistently excellent in the following areas 1. Location: In the heart of all the action in Chelsea and near transportation to areas outside Chelsea 2. Thrift: One of the best bargains in the city. 3: Cleanliness: The same maids have been...

If you're looking to stay in the best location possible, green leafed avenues, trendy meatpacking, shopping and subway don the road, this is it. Service is great and housekeeping even better. Rooms are simple but functional bed comfy, bathrooms clean. Go for the bigger rooms because others are a bit too small for two grown ups! Only minus was the... More

Very unhelpfull and uncompetent people at the reception - very small room (although clean) - good location in Chelsea (only positive point of this guest house) - in Europe this would be considered as a cheap youth hostel (although breakfast is often better in European youth hostels)

I honestly believe that no matter what I write, nothing can reflect the value of Colonial House Inn. First of all its location is just PERFECT!!! It's near everywhere. You can easily walk to Central Park and Financial district. I personally love walking and I rarely used the metro which is one block from CHI. Its location is ideal. One... More

My boyfriend and I (ages 24) stayed at the Colonial House Inn for 1 week. Overall it was a great experience. We rented a room with a double bed and shared a bathroom. Our room on the 2nd floor was good. We both found the bed very comfortable. There was enough room under out bed to keep our luggage, and... More

This is a very pleasant place to stay. Good location, pristine rooms with down duvets - an unexpected treat! Space perfectly adequate and plenty of room to hang clothing etc. Front desk personnel very pleasant and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay.

It seems that reviews for the Colonial house are all over the spectrum, so maybe I caught them on a good week. But: great location (1 block from the E train), spotless room and bathroom, super friendly front desk staff. All in all a great bargain! I used to spend a considerable amount of time in NYC on expense account... More

Just back from a six night stay in the Colonial Inn and wanted to big it up! The accommodation was spotless and cleaned daily. The staff were lovely. Chelsea proved to be a great location. There is a subway station one block away from the Colonial (A,C,E lines) and lots of great restaurants at the end of the street (on... More

This is a very good deal: very good location, among the lowest rates in Manhattan, very clean. I did not find the staff unfriendly. Quite the opposite. At worst, they were rather polite, which is all I ask for from any business. Some people might want bigger rooms or a private bathroom. The size of my room suited me, and... More

A fantastic find in New York, comfortable, friendly and clean. We had a great room with white linen and white walls with a great walk in shower. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, providing limitless cups of coffee. The only down side was an error on their part and not booking us in for our last night and having... 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.
