It was my first stay at the Belleclaire and I'm very happy to have made this choice. I was pleasantly surprised by the eagerness of the friendly hotel staff to help and their effectiveness in doing so. The location's wonderful, the lobby's welcoming and the room I was given was charming, quiet, clean, big and had a great view. Everything necessary is offered by this hotel. To me, there's no reason not to stay at the Belleclaire.

Stayed: December 2013, traveled solo

Dear Longcityisland,

Thank you for your excellent review! I am delightful to read your appraisal of our prime location, our team, services, the cleanliness, 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 lobby. We were delighted to accommodate your reservation needs and look forward to your future stay at Hotel Belleclaire!

After a bad stay somewhere else, we moved to this hotel. The person taking my reservation and check-in were very nice. The room was clean, and coming from someone who manages a hotel that is a big achievement, I look at every nook and crany. No mold, no hair,towels smelled clean, etc. The pool is a nice size and it was very clean. We ordered room service the first night and though they do not deliver, which I was told over the phone, they called us when it was ready and it was hot and fresh. There was a very nice desk clerk, I can't remember her name but she had a northern accent, she was super helpful. Thanks for saving my vacation!

We were a group of 4; Mum, Dad and 2 girls. We had a double deluxe room with 2 double beds, a walk in wardrobe and a bathroom. It was small but it was a base in a very good location for us to go out and about to see the sights. There is a fridge, a hairdryer, a safe as well as a TV in the room. The beds were very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean. The location of the hotel is a stroll from Central Park. You can walk through Central Park to 5th Ave to shop. There is no Restaurant at the hotel though there is a coffee bar that is open from 8 - 11 am which serves croissants, bagels and muffins etc. There is a lovely Italian Restaurant just across the road as well as a multitude of places to eat wherever you are in NY and whatever your budget is. The subway is a short walk away though we used yellow cabs all the time which we found to be very reasonably priced. We visited all the main sights like the Statue of Liberty, Empire State building, 9/11 memorial, Top of the Rock, Central Park, Times Square etc. I would advise anyone to pay in advance and book express tickets wherever possible (to avoid the queues). Also we did an open top bus tour which was very informative and gives you a good idea of where everything is geographically for later in your visit. New York is exhausting (in a good way), your days will be long but the memories will last a lifetime. We want to go back and experience it all again and we wouldn't bother to look for another hotel; We would definitely use and recommend the Hotel Belleclaire for sure.

Once you get over the initial shock of the rooms size, (we were a group of 5 with 3 double beds separated by a wall, no doors) you realise that actually its very nice.
over our stay the hotel room service looked after all of our needs as its really easy to get the subway around town.

Room Tip: We stayed at the front of the hotel on the first floor - it was very quiet, we all slept very well

This was my second time staying at Belleclaire and I enjoyed my stay just like I did the first time around. The lobby area has been renovated since I have been last and had some old American charm to it. The staff were wonderful in helping any way possible. Our room, 719, was a standard room that faced the side towards the river. It was fairly big in retrospect to NYC in my opinion with a nice-sized bathroom and walk-in closet. Everything was very clean and comfortable. We love staying on this side of the city which has a more neighborhood-like feel to it with unique restaurants and good shopping. We will be back!

At first we though the room was abit small, but we realised that in New York everywhere is going to be abit 'cosy'. The staff were really helpful and they let us look at two rooms before we decided where to sleep. Be prepared to have a small room if you want to stay here. There is barely any space to put your luggage.

However, overall this is a practical and good hotel for a city break.

The bed was very comfy, the heating is good and the shower is powerful. Tea and coffee is downstairs, not in your room.

The nearest subway station is only a one minute walk away.

Room Tip: Ask to see a couple, and don't upgrade until you see what the upgrade option is.
