nothing,over priced and bad service
at arrival the staff barely spoke english, at departure, there was no staff to check out before 9h00!!!!!! window could not be opened for fresh air, a party was going on in the backyard until 22h00 and the hotel staff spoke to me as if I was a 3 year old...
Loved the location, room, front desk staff, price was right.
I have travelled al over the world but this is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. We specifically booked a room with two twin beds but got a room with only one bed that was to small for two persons. Even though there was a room available with a bigger bed, they did not give it to us. Instead they gave us a camper bed. The problem was that the matras on this bed had springs that stuck out of the matras, you couldn't sleep in this bed. They refused to take care of this and we had to sleep on the floor in turns. Also the room was very dirty, there were bunch of hairs on the blankets and pillows. The breakfast was outside the hotel and everymorning it lacked something. Then the juice was out, then there was no tee etc.
The location was amazing, close-by everything. I also liked the kind of people staying at the hotel, fun people not liking to spend much but loves to have fun. Staff were friendly too.
shared bathrooms and also the fact walls were really slim and could hear everything from rooms beside. Also the sanitary equipment was really old.
honestly?... nothing. it was the worst hotel i stayed in, in a long time. 200 USD for this is outrageous!! it should be more around 10 USD!! the onlky thing that could justify the price is the fact that it is in NYC
except the night watchman the staff, and particularly the breakfast lady were almost agressive. I have slept in better hotel beds in the 3rd world for less!!!
The room was cute and clean, although basic, and the bathroom, shared with one other room, was new and clean, with a good shower and tub. The location was great, just north of Washington Square Park, handy to a subway station and easy to get cabs from.
Our room window overlooked 17th Street, and there was construction going on in the building across the way, as well as trafic all night, huge loud trucks in the morning, and bouts of beeping. The air conditioner let in all the noise, as well as the cold air right on our heads. The sheer curtains were no help. I asked the desk person on the way out if there were quieter rooms and he said "Yes, you just have to ask for them when you make your reservation" -- wish we'd known!
Charming. Historic. Great location. Closet with safe. Very clean, including shared bathroom. Staff pleasant and helpful. Although small, the room was spacious for NY. Continental breakfast included (1 roll or pastry and juice or coffee).
Bathrooms are shared (but only by 2 rooms). No elevator in this 100+ year old building, so if you stay on the top (5th) floor, you should like stairs.
I really loved the location. The Inn was very affordable and very practical. I enjoyed my stay!
The stair way was very slanted...but funny.
Chelsea Inn offers good value for the money, great location, free wifi, and free breakfast.
Thin walls mean you can occasionally hear other guests. Thin curtains were not sufficient to block the bright lights directly outside my window. The room was too warm, and it was very difficult to open the window, which had to be propped open with a 2x4 (provided at no extra cost).
The situation could not be better: many shops around, metro very closed, tranquility (for the rooms on the back) in the center of New York.
The room are not very spacious, but however comfortable. The walls are thin and we can hear the neighbours' chat, but everybody tries its best not to disturb each other.
Great location, no frills but an excellent value.
Price, location and breakfast from Nana'S.
Air conditioner blocked by dresser/heavy drapes - (ground floor - street window)
Although the bathrooms are shared it is only between 2 rooms, the showers are hot and have good pressure. The staff were friendly and willing to help by booking restaurants, tips on tours etc.
The breakfast is included but you have to collect from a cafe next door and take to your room, would have been nice to have a seated area, although can understand as being in manhattan the space is limited. there are no lifts and walking up 3 or 4 floors can be tough after a long day out
Good location, close to many points of reference
Staff was not particularly welcoming (and in the case of one, also spoke questionable English). Beware of 'breakfast' - it actually consists of a coffee and pastry combo from a nearby bakery (you pay with vouchers, wwii style). Room was not particularly clean (stains on armchairs, fossilized dead mosquitoes on walls etc). First time I was told to 'check my room' for any damages before leaving otherwise my credit card could be charged (very reasonable when leaving an apartment after months, very weird when staying for 2 nights in a room where hundreds of others stay over a month). Combination of price and location (as well as inexplicable reference in Lonely Planet) can prove formidable for this hotel, however walk in with really low expectations.
Poor internet access on the 3d floor
