“Good location”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

Great location, fantastic price. As clean as possible. Small room, but it is manhattan. If you are a large couple, the basic room and bath might be too small. We are only 5' 8" and less, so it was fine for us.

I stayed at this hotel for one night to sleep-in after a fun night out in Manhattan. The rooms are very small but clean and practical to just go to sleep. To be woken up by the cleaning staff doing their work was very annoying. I could hear loud walkie-talkies, stuff clanking and banging, conversations, etc. I often stay at budget places like this Manhattan over weekends but Id have to really think hard about staying here again.

The Belnord Hotel was a recommended hotel for teachers attending events at Teachers College at Columbia University. Positives: very clean, comfortable, great elevator, in a good neighborhood and close to the subway. You can walk to groceries, coffee shops, restaurants, and pharmacies--all are close by. They stored my luggage in a secure place the last day when I had to attend my conference until the afternoon and made sure a taxi was waiting to take me to the airport at the time I needed to go. Negatives: rooms are really small with small bathrooms. There is no restaurant at the hotel, but several closeby. Close to Central Park and museums. I would stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: My room was on the 5th floor and worked well. I suggest bringing a power strip if you have multiple...

Rooms are small, but clean and well laid out. Everything was fine apart from the heating, which was on a thermostat and every time it kicked in, it woke me up. It sounds like a plane landing!! Other than that, a perfectly good hotel.

Tiny room with a view of a brick wall - not so unusual for NYC. The bed was supposedly a double, but I'd not want to put two people in this room. Bath the size of a closet (you can't spread the bath mat all the way out on the "floor"). Again, if you're traveling alone and just need the bare minimum, it works. Great location just a block from the 86th Street Subway station on a reasonably quiet street. That's worth a good deal.

The Upper West Side does not offer many hotel options so The Belnord, hidden among the row houses, tenaments, and brownstones, allows you to feel like a resident of this interesting, quintessential New York neighborhood.

Access to Central Park is also priceless.

That said, the photos posted here tell the entire story. The rooms are tiny but comfortable. There are no views, no amenities, no services beyond the basics offered by a staff of eager to please, well trained, but unpolished young locals.

It was perfect for business travel but only of you're working nearby or get an excellent rate.

The hotel is not a luxury five star hotel. It is, however, comfortable, warm and well positioned for the metro and Central Park. The rooms are small. We had a twin room and there wasn't much space around each bed. However, the room was clean, the beds were amazingly comfortable and the bathroom was functional with a good shower and hairdryer.

The reception staff were helpful. There was a storage area for suitcases and a general shower room which can be used if you arrive or leave outside of check in time.

The metro station is just one block away and it takes about 10-15 minutes to get into central downtown. The trains run well to time and are very frequent.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone who is happy with a reasonably priced, basic hotel in good location.
