Our flat was roomy( except the kitchenette area, where we transitioned over to the dining table as an extra worktop ) The bathroom is great with ample counter space some complimentary extras and...

We stayed here last month and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The basement lodging is roomy and quiet - two attributes in short supply in the Big Apple. The backyard garden looked inviting, but it was too cool to enjoy it while we were there. The owners are knowledgeable about the city and most helpful; they arranged our transport back to... More

... a lovely room, an ample and well-designed bathroom, and a garden attached. We had a wonderful time here. Though the May weather wasn't as good as it should have been, we loved every day and loved coming back 'home' in the evening. It's really a "B&_" as they don't do breakfast but there's a small kitchen for DIY --... More

Well appointed studio apartment in the basement of a family home. Full of natural light with garden access in warm weather. Spa bathroom with a great step-in shower was extra special. Includes a well appointed small kitchen with all you would need for longer stays when you're ready for a home cooked meal. Host and Hostess are helpful and professional... More

First, we’d like to thank our guests for writing such a thorough review of their extended stay with us. We appreciate all of the positive things they had to say, and regret those elements that fell short of expectations. We’d like to address some of the issues they raised. 1. The courtyard/garden is never shared with other guests, if only... More

Comfortable beds, workman like little kitchen, wonderful little library, and fabulous garden space where we had wine with friends. In the center of Chelsea, easy walk to anywhere, welcoming hosts, we definitely want to go back. No breakfast, but so many great places nearby.

Courtesy, comfort, convenience, and understated elegance are the key words to describe the delightful Garden In Chelsea. As an older first time visitor to NYC who hadn't travelled for the longest time, I was somewhat fluttery, etc. However on setting foot in the enchanting garden my fears vanished as if by magic. I saw a Moonflower and from then on... 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.
