We're leaving today
We want to be apart from it
New York, New York
These Airwalk Trainers
Are tired and grey
They've been from East to West of it

I wanna wake up in my own bed
That doesn't squeak
And not wake from up a fire horn
But from a beep
New York is sooooo busy! To be expected the night before New Years Eve in which a million people descend on Times Square (we are not two of those million thankfully - we have other plans away from Times Square). A 5 hour bus journey from Boston has completed all the transfers we are going to make and finished them in a positive way. The journey was …
As we walked along 23rd Street away from the boat the clock passed 3am. New York Streets are still as busy as the day time with the added bonus that nobody seems to be able to walk in a straight line. The colour of the language has also become slightly more blue. As we wait at a crosswalk a couple are discussing getting a cab home and while the man …
Hope you are all well - welcome to our blog!
We have had a great time in New York - arrived late Sunday evening and checked into our hotel - the "Chelsea Inn". We have been non stop since then doing loads of touristy things like going up the Empire State building - Amazing! Bus tours (downtown, uptown and brooklyn …

Connor was disintegrating (we'd reached that museum limit we warned about), and so it was with a very nervous mum who sent with Aaron to see 'the floating box' of Afrum I. Victory is mine - his curiosity won and yes, he thought it was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Chelsea Inn - 17th Street New York City
I stayed with a friend at the Chelsea Inn from Oct. 26th until 30th 2004 and I really can't say that we have any complaints. We had chosen the hotel after quite some research online and weren't disappointed at all. Our room was on the fourth floor and since it is and old townhouse the stairs are narrow and high. We didn't mind, but if you have problems with climbing stairs, try asking for a room on the first or second floor in advance. Also, our room was facing the street, sometimes, there were people talking in front of the bar downstairs at night and in the day there was some street noise. Once again, we weren't bothered by it, but if you are a light sleeper, get a room at the back.
This was OK
Me and my friend came the first night from a long flight from Norway, we was the first night on a 4bed room hostel, it was horrible.
We found Chelsea inn the next day, the people in the reception was very nice and helpful. We got a nice room in 5th floor, and there was no elevators, puh, I lost a few punds on the steps evry day. We had a room for usself, and shared a bathroom with the neighbour room, i didnt notice any bad smell, or noice(and the gay bar was right under our room). The breakfast was great if you are used to it, but we from Norway do not eat cookies to breakfast, yuk, thats to sweat in the morning.
I reccomend this hotel, there is a lot strange places in New York, this place is good.
Do not stay at Chelsea Inn
Not much to say.. Noisy, small dirty rooms, obnoxious staff who are among the rudest people I've ever met (and by the way I am a New Yorker that went back to visit with friends) and most of all way too expensive for the what you get (nothing!).... word of mouth hurts small businesses like this, hopefully my word will have a great impact on this lousy inn....
My teenage daughter and I have really happy memories of staying at the Chelsea despite the number of problems that could have bothered more picky travellers. Having a fridge was extremely helpful. We adored finding all the Sex in the City thrift shops in the neighbourhood as well as the big market/emporium. There was a neighbourhood feel to the area and by the time we left I was on a chatting basis with a number of locals. Every ordinary thing you could need is a block or two away. I was able to walk all the way to Canal street and China Town in the dead of winter.The transport everywhere else is readily available.
I chose this hotel because it fit my criteria of quaint, centrally
Cheap but Smelly
Stayed there Valentines 2004. Overpowering urine-like smell in hallways! Ick! Baths shared and not too well kept up. Rooms small but clean -- make sure to request one in the back - the disco next door makes a great deal of noise for guests in rooms over looking the street. Coupon good each morning for a delicious croissant at the nearby bakery. Provided us with a crib for $10 a night. No elevator, so you must carry your bags up rickety flights of stairs -- no help available. Our friends who stayed on the third floor were on their way home overseas with lots of bags and were greatly put out. Receptionists nice and helpful when possible. No staff on duty from 9 pm until 9 am.
Located near the Village, Union Square, subway, pretty convenient.
My room was grimly dark, twin beds with mattresses that felt like sprung box springs, cold air leaking from window that couldn't be shut, steam heat from ancient radiator that began hammering at 5 a.m. And then there was the smell of old Chinese cooking wafting through the halls and the outside door that wouldn't stay shut. I moved to a more comfortable room and the Polish women were helpful on the desk. The $135 plus 13% tax seemed alot for these less than comfortable offerings.
Comfy hotel in NYC
I visit NYC 3-4 times a year. This little hotel is my home away from home. The kitchenettes are great, especially with the Union Square Farmer's Market a couple of blocks away. The hotel is unpretentious, clean, and seems to cater to a lot of European travellers. The staff is lovely.
What a dump!
This little Inn is next to a disco open untill 3:30 every night. The managers didn't seem to be aware of the noise. Also the paperthin walls didn't help. Rooms are small. We won't be back.
This hotel is a great old-style townhouse right in the middle of the city. Very clean with excellent rooms. I would also recommend the Granville Restaurant which is nearby.
