I asked for a refund and left 4 hours after I got there.
I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy
The renovated rooms were very nice, however, they had been recently painted and the fumes were overwhelming, so I was transferred to one of the older, non-renovated rooms. Although the bed and furnishings were new (sheets, pillows and wall mounted TV, the walls (paint and plaster) and carpet were what you would expect in a no-tell motel. Also, most of the rooms "shared" a bathroom. Your bedroom had it's own door and you had to leave your room to go into a bathroom which was used by another room. It worked out fine. Still, it is a great value ($65/night booked in advance) for the location! There's a cute french cafe next to it for breakfast and you're never in the room (very small as most NYC hotel rooms) anyway.
It was a 5 story walk-up building - no elevator. After looking at 2 rooms (one without a window! and both freshly painted/smelly) we were transferred to the 5th floor and it was a struggle getting the luggage up the 4 flights of stairs (main floor/1st floor). It will be a very nice hotel once the renovation is completed.
It was one block from where we needed to go the most often. My husbands favorite coffee place was next door. (Petite abelle). The staff was friendly and helpful. And the room was newly renovated with high ceilings and a very pretty contemporary style. The bed was comfortable.
Some rooms in this place have a shared bathroom. I booked one with a private. Still this seems to be a common thing in nyc so be careful when booking. We stayed in room 207 which was newly renovated. The only thing lacking was individual temp control, which we fixed with a space heater. A refrigerator and microwave would have been nice too. The room was very small, not good for more than two people.
front desk closed at 9pm so they basically robbed me. It looked like a homeless shelter, only crackhead and whores stay here
Breakfast was good from the bakery down stairs - choice of pastry, a piece of fruit and a coffee and the lady there is lovely!
Ask to stay in a room at the back if you can - the street is very noisy at night and the windows are not double glazed!!
I can highly recommend a stay at the Chelsea Inn. Lot's of stairs but a great room for a good price. Union square and Broadway is close by and you can easly walk to Little Italy or Chinatown!
If you can't walk that many stairs this is not the hotel for you
The hotel is affordable for New York City. It is clean, tidy and attractive. There are no extras, but the price is right.
Chelsea Inn is literally 50 feet from 5th ave in awesome walking distance to everything. great location.
Having said that, our bathroom wasn't in our room, we had a separate key and a shared bathroom_ which was clean, just inconvenient, and after a full 7 hours of walking be prepared to climb some stairs because you might be on the 4th floor and there is no elevator :-)
Loud music from bar next door
Location, price, decor, workout of daily walks up multiple flights of stairs, sharing a bathroom was not as bad as I thought it was going to be
The complimentary breakfast really isn't worth being considered a selling point.
Good location in Chelsea.
There isn't a lift but lots of stairs, the shared bathroom arrangement is strange, the reception shuts at 9.00pm, and the rooms are quite dated with old furniture. Net curtains on the windows would be nice too!
Easy access to Union Square area and West Village area where my daughter lives
very good location
bathroom was sharing, which was not mentioned when I booked online
