I had checked Trip Advisor for recommendations for as inexpensive hotel as I could get in New York City for two nights (Oct 7 & 8, 2013), so I was somewhat prepared for how small this property could be. I was very pleased with the location and the general ambiance, but the room was incredibly small. That fact did not really bother me, as it was just a place to sleep and secure luggage.
Room 717 was approximately 10 feet wide by 16 feet deep. This is not an exaggeration, but also just a "One and a half of me with arms wide by two of me with arms wide" measurement. A double bed with a nightstand, sink and very interesting closet/entertainment unit. At 5 feet 6 inches it was enough room for me.
I did not have the problem of excessive noise. In fact, I rarely heard or saw anyone at all. The maintenance man was shampooing the hallway carpets when I arrived, and I found all the areas I explored within the hotel were very clean.
The elevator is incredibly small and dark paneled. I did see one woman who refused to use it, much to her husband's consternation.
If I find myself in need of a hotel in New York City again, I will definitely stay at the Hotel 17 again.
