    This hotel was comfortable. Good location, friendly staff. No coffee/tea facility though. Family room large enough for five adults. No separate door though between the two bedroom areas. New York is very expensive so this was a good priced hotel by NY standards. Not luxury but not budget either.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Belleclaire New York City

    Loved the Belle Claire.

    from

    For us, the Belle Claire was perfect. Wonderful position, lovely upper west area and on Broadway - just a short stroll to the subway or bus on 79th and Broadway. Great to have Big Nick's eatery next door -great pizzas as well as the gourmet market. Not far to walk to Central Park, Riverside Park, gorgeous Lola's cafe on 83rd Street and the best & cheapest hotdogs and delicious papaya juice in New York, at Grays Papaya on 72nd and Broadway The room in the Belle Claire was large and with 2 Queen beds- all white & totally comfy. Our carpet was new but some rooms had old grey carpet. May not suit those who like more elaborate furnishings as the decor is very simple & clean and bathroom is small but clean. The staff was friendly & helpful.

    It's ok...

    I stay in NY very frequently. Tried the Belleclaire because of the description I found on hotels. Parisian neighborhood? Look, I know the upper west side can be charming but PLEASE - this is far from a Parisian neighborhood! It's classic NY. Nothing special about this place at all. The mirrors in the lobby give the illusion of actual size, and I suppose to the numerous drunk adolescents and college-aged people staying there, mainly trendy foreignors looking for a cheap deal, it may actually provide that illusion. I was not fooled though.The first night there the bed was wonderful! It's true, very nice. BUT, the second night - sorry, the futon like mattress was enough to make my cranky back scream for anything else.The shower was the loudest I'd ever been in - it screamed like a victim in a Hitchcock film.Cheap hotel overpriced. Don't bother. You can find much classier places for the same money. Just look.

    Perfect!

    from

    It was wonderful. Great location, very clean, and the beds were more comfortable than the ones at home. We had stayed at the Quality Hotel on Broadway which received better ratings than this hotel and we were utterly disappointed with that place. We were lucky we decided to stay here for our second night in NYC. We will definitely go back to this place.

    Loved It!

    from

    If you are looking for a comfy place to stay, in a safe neighborhood with easy access to multiple subway stations, all at a reasonable price - - - this is the place. We stayed in a room with a shared bath, and there was never a line or a problem. The rooms were clean, with fresh sheets and towels daily. We stayed in two separate rooms while we were there due to travel arrangements, and they were both great. I will admit one was very small, however, if you are vacationing you won't spend a lot of time in your room anyway. The beds were the softest that I have ever slept in. The neighborhood feels safe, even late at night.

    The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. There is a market around the corner with an excellent assortment of fruits and veggies. I would totally come back.

    A pleasant stay

    from

    We are a couple with 4 children and we were looking for a hotel with reasonably priced suites. All the information I had on the Belleclaire was taken from the Internet and reviews like this one. I am happy to say that we felt like we made the right decision as our stay at the Belleclaire was very nice and we were there for the Blackout of 2003 in August! The suite was two rooms and one bathroom. One bedroom had two double beds and the other a queen. The furniture was sparse - beds, nightstands and a simple desk with a chair. There was also a walk in closet in one bedroom. The beds were quite comfortable and the sheets were of good quality. The towels were nothing special. The TV had cable, Nintendo and pay movies. It was clear the hotel was recently refurbished. All the fixtures were new. I'm a firm believer in "you get what you pay for" and I feel that for the price we paid, we got exactly what I expected - clean, comfortable and a good location. The employees at the front desk were very helpful especially during the Blackout. For meals, we ate breakfast across the street at the 24 hr. Manhattan Diner. The hotel was located on the corner of Broadway and 77th about 6 blocks from the Museum of Natural History.

    The Belleclaire Hotel is not for me

    from

    I had researched the Belleclaire on the web and had been impressed with all of the glowing descriptions of the place, making it sound like an inexpensive version of a first-rate hotel. The pictures and the descriptions were very misleading. From the moment my husband and I stepped into the tiny lobby, we realized we'd made a mistake. Though the place was clean and offers the amenities mentioned in the other reviews, if you are accustomed to a certain ambiance, this is not the place for you. I found it depressing and dingy, though I could see how it might appeal to youth who are used to staying in hostel-type settings. We had planned to stay four nights, but we left after one night. Luckily, we stumbled on The Milburn Hotel, on 76th, which was everything we had hoped the Belleclaire would be, an attractive modestly priced hotel. When we asked to see a room and told them we were staying at the Belleclair, the desk clerks rolled their eyes and laughed. We were not the first refuges they'd had from their neighbor.

    Great hotel :)

    from

    Great hotel not far from Central Park. Beautiful city. Was a pleasant place to stay. I recommend to anyone. Thank you TripAdvisor for the tip.

    A pleasant surprise in NYC

    from

    This hotel is very clean, cheerful, located in a safe and thriving part of the City (Upper West Side.) Excellent room rates for NYC. Close to some great small restaurants (very reasonable also), museums, entertainment, Central Park, shopping. Room and bath were very clean, bright (except poor lighting in bath, but no biggy); cable televison; pay-per-view movies; iron; ironing board; AM-FM clock radio w/CD player; hairdryer; and the usual soaps and shampoo. Linens and goose down comforter were exquisite,,,very clean, very fresh, very soft--all white. Upgraded us to a very comfortable king bed without asking. This hotel also offers a truly budget-priced "shared bath" option--we did not do that, but if you are a truly tight budget, I would imagine the rooms would be the same. Highly recommended for better-than-basic lodging in NYC.

    Great location, near the metro, restaurants, shops, bars, Central Park, the Hudson. Big Nick's Eatery is just beside it -- great for everything you could possibly want for breakfast. Staff were very friendly though the plumbing was uncertain.

    Very pleased with the Belleclaire

    from

    We stayed at the Belleclaire in November of 2001. When we came back in the spring, again on a budget, I was hoping that the hotel I chose this trip would compare but sadly it did not (Hotel Newton - somewhat depressing). The beds at the Belleclaire were what I remember most - perhaps the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The bathroom had a full bath and the room was nicely decorated. All in all I enjoyed our stay at the Belleclaire and would recommend it to friends (as well as strangers).

    Well here we are in the big apple. It is my third or fourth trip here. Everything is as I remember. Fast moving, lots of people and traffic, cars blaring horns, sirens blasting, impatient people and such a big city feel. The only real difference I can notice is that at this time of year we have double the people due to it being Christmas time and …
