“A nice place to take a bite of the Big Apple”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Not the cheapest, not the poshest but a good all rounder bearing in mind you are in the most expensive city in the world (Probably)
Looks a bit art deco but what do i know?
The windows in our room did not close correctly so were selotaped closed to stop the draughts. the heating was somewhat hit and miss with very old central heating, not much of a view from the windows but a great bathroom. I have a thing about bathrooms on my travels and this was a good 'un.
A coffee machine in the room would be great but had to go out every morning to the store for coffee.
The staff were nice and helpful and the cleanliness was great.
It was fair priced and in a great location. The rooms were a bit small but Go on give it a go, you will enjoy it.

The Belleclaire is our go to hotel when visiting our daughter in NYC. The Upper West Side location is the selling point; location to Reiverside Park, Central Park, access to the 1 train, walking distance to Lincoln Center, all great. Balances some of the quirkiness of an old building (no central heat or A/C). Friendly staff, clean rooms. Overall a good option on the hotel starved UWS.

This hotel is centrally located in Manhattan. It's an excellent value and you can frequently find online discounts of 25% the usual rates if you book on certain dates. We loved the location! It was so easy to get to all the important NYC destinations such as the museums, theater district and historic landmarks. Taxis are plentiful and the subway is easy to navigate. They have a concierge that is friendly and knowledgeable. Customer service is excellent from all the staff! It's a clean hotel and an excellent value. We're booked again for our trip in July!

Could not fault this hotel. We had a deluxe queen bedroom and it was just the right size for the 2 of us. The staff at the reception and concierge desk were all extremely helpful and happy to help with anything we needed.The location was perfect, out the way of the hubub of downtown Manhattan but 2 minutes away from 2 subway stations and just a short walk away from Central Park and The Natural History Museum. The room itself was very clean and was cleaned everyday by the cleaners. The fitness room was well equipped as was the media room. We would definitely recommend this hotel and have already started saving to come back! Thankyou Hotel Bellclaire :)

This was our first visit to New York and what a great time we had. The location of the hotel is great, just far enough away from the noise of the city, but close enough to be able to get into town with ease. All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful, every thing is kept very clean, the beds are warm and comfortable. With plenty of places to eat and shop, it was just perfect.

The Belleclaire has a great location on the Upper West Side and is near Lincoln Center. The hotel is pleasant and clean. There is no free coffee and no in-room coffee machines. Most of the rooms are large for NYC, though on my recent stay we had a tiny inner room that faced away from Broadway with less street noise but more hotel sounds. There is a grocery store on the block that is convenient for breakfast, as the BC offers only a paid breakfast in the lobby. Staff are pleasant. Altogether a decent value for the area but don't look for a lot of luxury.
