    I love everything about this property. I loved the area of NYC. The breakfast is excellent. Rooms are very clean. Employees are very courteous and attentive to my needs.

    I feel lucky to have found this place. The rooms are really clean, it was nice and warm in my room. I got a room with half bathroom (I think they all are), so you only have to share a shower which is actually fine. Bed was quite comfy. Location is near the subway and can walk to a few places. Nice restaurants to eat at nearby. Best of all was the price (which is half of what the other options are in New York). The building itself has lots of charm too - I loved the wooden interior elevators. Staff seemed friendly too. They look after your luggage if needed. Please stay as you are in case I ever come back to New York (I would never think of looking anywhere else). Mother Theresa stayed at the hotel in 1960. It was nice staying at a catholic guest house.

    Nothing I didn’t like. There is some construction work going on near the hotel at the moment (after 8am) but really didn’t bother me and isn’t to do with the hotel.

    I come to NYC once or twice a year and I appreciate the Leo House and the consideration you give priests and religious

    The location is amazing. Less than half an hour interesting walk to times square, and easily walkable to lower manhattan and a range of subway lines so close (use it, it's easy safe and cheap and it saves your feet!). Quick walk to the highline which is lovely. Chelsea really is the best neighbourhood to stay in to explore the whole city. Really good food options nearby, good breakfast in the dining room. Nice desk staff, lovely house keeping staff. You leave your key when you go out and ask for it when you come back. There's two lifts and a couple of bathrooms on each floor, we never had to wait. One bathroom I couldn't get the door to lock securely so just went to another down the hall. Yes, it's a little tired and old, yes the shared bathrooms need updating but it's CLEAN. The rooms are super clean, warm and cosy, the beds are comfy. There's noise from the street but that's New York! They supply really good ear plugs which worked really well. For those of us with shared bathroom rooms, there's a toilet and sink in the room. The building is old with lots of character, which I love. We would happily stay again, it's such a great location and building. We already want to go back...

About

Overview

Set in a well-maintained building from the early 20th century, the Leo House has been in operation since 1889. The location moved in the 1920s to the current heart of Manhattan's vibrant Chelsea neighborhood. The Leo House is a Catholic guesthouse that welcomes visitors of all faiths, though it certainly doesn't attract lively partiers.

The Leo House is a simple Catholic guesthouse in a historic building at a prime tourist location. Right on bustling 23rd Street, the guesthouse is across the street from the SVA Theater, which features popular movie premieres. Other popular destinations include the High Line, Madison Square Park, and the Flatiron. The Chelsea neighborhood offers a myriad of restaurants, bars, and shops that are all minutes away on foot. The C/E subway stops down the block, and the 1 line is also close, offering easy access to nearly anywhere in the city.

The rooms at The Leo House are small and spartan, with only one or two beds, a desk or chair. However, they are comfortable and clean and feature modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs. Some rooms still feature communal showers, but many rooms have been updated to have en-suite bathrooms.

The small rooms often bring guests to the lounge room and back to the garden patio. The Leo House abides by golden standards, such as no food allowed in rooms. The amenities offered at the classic hotel include common areas, a business center, a Catholic chapel, and breakfast for a fee. For guests staying on a longer trip, laundry facilities are available.

One of the most reasonably priced lodging options in Lower Manhattan, the Leo House is a great option for those who want to explore the city from a prime location.
