“Nice room, very loud heating!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

Rooms are small, but clean and well laid out. Everything was fine apart from the heating, which was on a thermostat and every time it kicked in, it woke me up. It sounds like a plane landing!! Other than that, a perfectly good hotel.

Tiny room with a view of a brick wall - not so unusual for NYC. The bed was supposedly a double, but I'd not want to put two people in this room. Bath the size of a closet (you can't spread the bath mat all the way out on the "floor"). Again, if you're traveling alone and just need the bare minimum, it works. Great location just a block from the 86th Street Subway station on a reasonably quiet street. That's worth a good deal.

The Upper West Side does not offer many hotel options so The Belnord, hidden among the row houses, tenaments, and brownstones, allows you to feel like a resident of this interesting, quintessential New York neighborhood.

Access to Central Park is also priceless.

That said, the photos posted here tell the entire story. The rooms are tiny but comfortable. There are no views, no amenities, no services beyond the basics offered by a staff of eager to please, well trained, but unpolished young locals.

It was perfect for business travel but only of you're working nearby or get an excellent rate.

The hotel is not a luxury five star hotel. It is, however, comfortable, warm and well positioned for the metro and Central Park. The rooms are small. We had a twin room and there wasn't much space around each bed. However, the room was clean, the beds were amazingly comfortable and the bathroom was functional with a good shower and hairdryer.

The reception staff were helpful. There was a storage area for suitcases and a general shower room which can be used if you arrive or leave outside of check in time.

The metro station is just one block away and it takes about 10-15 minutes to get into central downtown. The trains run well to time and are very frequent.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone who is happy with a reasonably priced, basic hotel in good location.

the location for me was the only plus. the hotel itself is outdated with no amenities. the rooms are ridiculously small, and you can hear everything that goes on in the other rooms and the hallway. the bed is hard and the sheets are not comfortable, and the curtains didn't close all the way. The front desk staff greeted me curtly, and at 10 o'clock at night could not find my reservation even though I booked it directly on their website. they repeated this with the next person who followed me in, and eventually managed to find both reservations after a long wait. that's a terrible feeling 10 o'clock at night. my room key never worked, so I had to go to the front desk to be let in every single time. this was a last minute stay, only for one night, and I would not return or recommend to others.

Excellent location and average standard. Really nothing special to write home about. The location is however excellent for both business and pleasure. The hotel itself would be a two star hotel according to my standard. Price is not related to the standard. Well, staff is friendly, room is clean but it is definitely no a trendy hotel. A bit old fashioned. Wifi is not complimentary. Air quality was not particularly good in my room. But again, what can you expect to get from your money In NYC in December?

The room was too small to lay your suitcase down. Two people cannot walk in the room without one of them needing to get onto the bed to let the other pass.

We walked in and walked right out. They still charged us for a single night. They offered us a alternate room that smelled like urine.

Beware.

Room Tip: choose another hotel.
