This lovely hotel is just few minutes walk from the Fifth avenue, Time sq and all the other NYC landmarks. The only minus here is when they switched the heating on it made such an unpleasant noise. But apart of that very enjoyable stay 👍

I had a problem with a booking issue and a non refundable room. Paula contacted me promptly and resolved it to my satisfaction. I will be very happy to return to the city and look forward to staying at the Chelsea Inn once again. Thank you for the prompt response and fix.

We stayed over new years in Chelsea Inn. We paid 330$ a night, for three nights and I have to say I´m just shocked that such a place actually works. I´ll start with the positive: It´s a really cute hotel, with a nice city design and a very good location. But this doesn´t justify leaving us to a room with...

I've stayed at the Chelsea Inn going back to the 1990's; a home away from home when I visit the city. Today, I went to book 3 rooms for different people. The website directed me to Hotels.com, a first for me. In my confusion, I inadvertently booked one of the rooms for 1 additional day. I immediately contacted both the...

This is a great place to stay if you're in visiting and plan to be out and about all day. It's got basic amenities (check for shared bathrooms) but nothing fancy. There is construction going on across the street so don't plan to sleep late if you have a window. Also we found that the shared bathroom was a bit...

Went in the winter and was placed in room 105-2. Try to avoid this room if possible because there are no windows, the heat is broken in this room, there is a uncovered hot water pipe running besides the bed, and it get unbearably hot at night. This was the most uncomfortable experience I've ever had at a hotel. Called...

Was a bit sceptical about going here having read some of the more critical reviews, however I am please to say that this hotel was great. It is simple, with small rooms and can get quite noisy however the fact you have everything you could possibly wish for right on the doorstep makes up for all the small negatives. The...

I had my doubts about this hotel, but wound up staying here anyway because availability was limited around Penn Station. My doubts were fully justified. For a price that is not a particular bargain, I got a tiny airless windowless room with no evident ventilation at all, which smelled of mold. There was no place to sit. Worse, it was...

My wife and I stayed recently at the Chelsea Inn. We found the service to be helpful, and the room better than we expected. The entire room seemed brand new, including the bathroom, as well as decor throughout the rest of the inn. The decor was modern and clean. There was some noise late at night from across the street,...

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
