“Will return”
Reviewed 8 January 2013

My wife and I stayed at at A Garden In Chelsea for 11 nights over Christmas and New Years in December 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

It was our first time staying at a B&B so were a little unsure what to expect but after spending the previous 3 weeks in hotels it was a very welcome change. Karen and Paul the hosts were very accommodating and friendly and were always willing for a quick chat when we ran into them.

The room itself was in then basement which gave it a very cosy and homely charm. It has a private kitchen and small dining area as well as a bathroom. It's quite large compared to Manhatten standards. After extremely busy days exploring the sights of NYC it was nice to return home to our own little haven.

Perfect location in the heart of Chelsea with an abundance of restaurants close by, as well a walking distance to the famed Chelsea Markets and the Subway. It was nice to get away from the hotel scene and we actually felt a little like 'locals' staying at the Garden.

I hope to return to NYC in the coming years and this place will be the first thing I book.

The spacious second floor apartment had a homey and artistic feel, quality furnishings, clean and ready, very handy kitchen in a quiet, safe neighborhood. The subway was very convenient, as were restaurants of all sorts and stores for essentials. We did fine with the stairs and were told before hand (not elderly, but not spring chickens!). Easy to stop on the way upstairs and admire the great movie posters, if necessary. Paul and Karen helped us with our suitcases, too. Karen and Paul were totally available with helpful information and printed our plane tickets when it was time to go (just before the storm!). The WIFI was great for my iPad and TV reception perfect as we rested for the next full day. We prepared breakfasts and quite a few dinners for the 8 days we were there. Terrific stay, would come again and again. Thanks Karen and Paul!

Room Tip: I had hoped to have access to garden...not necessary, too much to do in New York- get out early and...

We stayed in the second floor apartment for 9 nights. The street itself is quiet and lined with glorious brownstones. The apartment has everything you need, a comfortable and spacious lounge/dining room, a kitchen, a very quiet bedroom and beautiful views from both the bedroom and lounge room. It's definitely has more ambience than a standard hotel room that are much the same all over the world. We walked all over NYC from here - from the Upper East Side as well as from the Village. Karen was available to answer our questions about NYC, book a car to the airport and even posted our post cards for us! Great service.

Just returned from a 2 weeks stay in the garden apartment with my wife and it was wonderful! The flat itself could not nave been better, furnished with everything including an excellent library (which I wish I had more time with as it included many books on my "to read" list!), good kitchen and bathroom facilities, wifi, cable TV, and an excellent large bed. The garden was an added bonus - it was a lovely place to sit after a hard day of sightseeing. The hosts, Karen and Paul, could not have been more helpful. I note a previous comment on the steps to the upstairs flat; I have a disability and found no problems with the steps accessing the garden apartment.So if you do have any mobility problem, make sure you book this apartment..

The location was also fantastic,in a quiet tree lined street, close to good restaurants, a laundary, and a subway station on a good line. Though if you were more energetic you could walk to the village, or Times Square! Unlke the experience of staying in a hotel, turning into the street in the evening really felt like coming home! I would certainly recommed this place to anyone, and hope to return.

We spent a week at the Garden in Chelsea in a second floor apartment so no garden for us. It is our first apartment experience in NYC and we have mixed feelings. On the pro sides the place is on a perfect destination for retreating out from the buzz and noise of the very crowded touristic atractions. It is nice to have a place away to recover with a home feeling. The apartment is well appointed with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Beds and linen were decent and clean also towels and kitchen. Be aware of having the strength to escalate 36 steps above in a steep narrow stair with your luggage, we were never warned we would have to experience that! So it is not an accesible place for elderly or injured people. My knees are still swelling! Also we felt a litlle bit like intruders, since you stay in a place filled with personal belongings of the family, that feeling never went away during our stay and that is not comfortable. It was not as clean as you would expect for what you invest, they could do better, we had to clean it twice before using it! Also we could never connect to the wi fi, and have to go downstairs to catch another wifi in case needed. Be aware of that if you are going in a business trip.
Karen the owner was nice and helpful by email but since they were absent during the same week, nobody could really help us in any way. Mixed feelings.

Room Tip: Be aware of asking where you are going to be booked! The upper apartments are not accesible for elde...

We spent three nights in the apartment and loved it! We have rented 4 different apartment type places (all legal) in New York City, and this was by far the best! The location is ideal for exploring Chelsea (Highline, Chelsea market) or walking a few short blocks to a subway to explore any part of New York City. The bedroom is extremely quiet and there is minimal street noise in the living room. The apartment is incredibly well furnished with shampoo, conditioner, soap, robes, hair dryer, and basic breakfast supplies (coffee, tea, milk, sweeteners). There are two large groceries within 3 blocks. You can carry in food, have food delivered, or enjoy the many many restaurants in the area (or throughout the city). The hosts (Karen and Paul) are incredibly friendly and helpful.

We visit New York City at least once a year. We try to stay in a different area for each visit. But, it will hard not to return to A Garden in Chelsea for our next visit. It is a true gem!

We have just returned from a 2-week stay at a Garden in Chelsea in NYC. This apartment is located on the basement level of a heritage brownstone house in the historic district of Chelsea.

The accommodation was fantastic and was a real highlight of our stay. The apartment is very well set up and includes a small kitchen, a huge comfortable bed, a sitting/dining area, a nice bathroom with plush towels and access to a lovely garden. It was a wonderful retreat at the end of a busy day sight seeing.

The apartment is really well located in easy walking distance to many fabulous restaurants, shops, the Chelsea Markets and the High Line as well as the subway. Our hosts Karen and Paul were full of helpful information on the area and were very welcoming.
