“Comfortable Upper West Side”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

A friend and I stayed at the Belleclaire for 3 nights in late July. The location was great, a short walk to Central Park and the subway station. The hotel has a historic feel (nice exterior look and narrow halls) but the rooms and lobby are updated and very clean. I was expecting a tiny room so I was actually pleasantly surprised with the amount of space in the room. The air conditioning unit was a little loud but worked well and kept the room cool all night. Staff was friendly and helpful with directions.

Dear Kate M,

Thank you for your excellent review! I am delightful to read your appraisal of our team, the cleanliness, services and I know our staff will be equally pleased to learn of your amazing remarks and recognition of their efforts. As you already kindly mention, Belleclaire is located on the Upper West Side, close to the best museums in NY City and far from the chaos of shopping crowds in midtown. I notice as well your mention about the nice renovations of our rooms and lobby.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon at Belleclaire. It will be our pleasure to have another opportunity to show you the gracious hospitality and superb service for which we are known on the Upper West Side of New York City.

Best Regards,

Anna Nejasmic

We (me, husband, teenage son) have now stayed at the Belleclaire twice, and will probably do so again. It's a great location on the Upper West Side, very close to the subway, the park, Zabars, the original Carmine's, and a lot of little restaurants on Amsterdam Ave.--some of which are quite good. The hotel is historic, which translates to a lot of charm and rooms on the small side, but our room on this trip (two double beds) fit the three of us quite comfortably. The bathroom was small but perfectly adequate.
Staff are friendly if not effusive, but hey, that's pretty good for New York, right?

We provide complimentary high speed wi-fi access, a mini refrigerator in each guest room, game room with over 10,000 arcade style games and 27-inch MAC computers, C.O.

With steps away to the subway station, our location offers easy access to various main attractions and locations throughout NYC.

The Belleclaire is a great find on the upper west side, having recently completed major renovations to all parts of this 100 + year old hotel. You cannot beat it for location. The staff are all very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Rooms are NYC sized, but you have the options of parlor suite, king beds, etc. so ask when booking. Nothing is cheap in NYC, but the Belleclaire puts you in walking distance of many great NYC attractions and one block from the subway, so everything is easily accessible. Central Park, Museum of Natural History, Museum Mile, and the West Side River Park all within walking distance. Jump on their mailing list for special rate offers throughout the year. Central heating and air coming soon as well. (yes the old steam radiators and window mounted air conditioners can be annoying.....)

Room Tip: Go for upper floors, facing either the river or 77th street, avoid Broadway facing rooms for noise

This is a great hotel on the Upper West Side. The Staff is friendly and very accomodating. Location is convenient to many restaurants, Central Park and even markets for shopping. Regarding the rooms: I will say that our room was small but we were still comfortable, the windows are tinted which gives the atmosphere that it is very dark outside - I prefer things a little brighter. I also noticed that the carpets often appeared to need vacuumed which is the reason for the average rating on cleanliness.

My husband and I stayed in the Hotel Belleclaire for five nights and our stay was wonderful. The hotel is big, romos are tiny but very comfortable. We were offered an upgrade to a bigger room, but we decided not to upgrade because we werent going to spend a lot of time in the room.
The bathroom was very modern and functional. Great showerhead!!!
We stayed in the 9th floor. Zero noise.
They do not provide breakfast, but there is a deli right next to the Children's Place store (which is in front of the hotel) that works 24/7.
The hotel is only two blocks away from the Subway station. Very well located, the red line goes through that station and you can move pretty much everywhere in Manhattan.
Loved the hotel, will stay there again and I definately recommend this!!!

Room Tip: High floors

I booked a flight/hotel package with many hotel choices. The price is great for NYC and I found the location preferable to being further south because it is more a neighborhood without throngs of tourists packing the streets. THe subway stops are 2 and 6 blocks away so it's easy to get around; there are many nearby restaurants walkable as well as a 24 hr market around the corner and a bakery/coffee shop 1/2 block away. THere is a coffee bar in the lobby with some bakery goods as well. The small refridgerators in the room are great for a quick breakfast in or a snack.
The king room we had faced Broadway but the fan covered noise and the work outside did not start until 8:30 AM.
We did have some issues regarding maid service when we remained in our room until about 10 AM. THough we were gone until 5:30 PM one day, no one serviced it and did not come promptly when requested. The rooms were clean, contemporary and the shower quite nice.

Room Tip: A higher floor would be good to avoid Broadway noise and the king room is pretty spacious.
