“Lovely Stay!”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

Lovely hotel in a comparatively quiet area of New York.

As expected the room was small but clean and nicely decorated. I would have liked is a rug/carpet in the room (after a long day's walking something soft would have been lovely! )

Secondly, a cold draft came through what could only be described as the air conditioning unit (which formed the lower part of the window) This was, however, easily rectified by putting the blinds down. Also, the radiator was either stone cold or burning hot. The weather was mild for December, but it could have been worse had it been sub-zero temperatures.

Having said that, the staff were helpful and accommodating, and the hotel served its purpose well enough. As a bonus, the complimentary umbrellas were fantastic, as was the urn of ice tea and water in the lobby.

Overall a pleasant stay :)

Dear Emma B,

We are thrilled with your comments regarding our prime location, our service, cleanliness, the comfort, and our amenities. Regarding the A/C unit and the radiators, we will be updating our HV/AC system in 2014 and all the radiators will be eliminated. All guest rooms will have the wall climate controlled system.

With steps away to the subway station, our location offers easy access to various main attractions and locations throughout NYC. Take a walk through the picturesque Central Park, dine at a world class gourmet restaurant, let music fill your ears at Lincoln Center and top off the night with delicious cupcakes from Crumbs Bake Shop.

We were delighted to accommodate your reservation needs and look forward to your future stay at Hotel Belleclaire!

Happy Holidays!

Warm Regards,

Anna Nejasmic

Nice area. Reasonable price ( for NY) for duties to accommodate families. They give you complimentary slippers and the use of umbrellas. The staff is very nice and helpful. The only down fall is it is a smaller hotel-so the street level noise can be heard in your room (we had a corner room-facing the street) and at times makes it hard to sleep peacefully. They also had a media room with internet/printers. All complimentary which was great since I needed to print tickets for a show. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Especially if Times Square hotels are not your cup of tea. I need a larger room for my family (6) and a calmer area to stay in. The family suite was definitely a necessity for our trip, and overall a good value!

Nice hotel covenient to subway station and short walk to central park. We liked the hotel- location and services but it was really noisy at night and early morning although this may have been because our room faced the street.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Belleclaire in early December 2013 for our first trip to NYC. After reading many older reviews I had mixed feelings on what to expect. As many newer reviews have stated, this hotel has undergone many updates yet still maintains it's old world charm. The hotel is around 100 years old, so it really has character and is quite lovely. The lobby is decorated very pretty for Christmas and the staff was friendly and eager to help in any way they could. We stayed in a Broadway King room and it was clean, pretty, and spacious for Manhattan standards. It is located in the Upper West side of Manhattan which is just two subway stops away from Times Square and other tourist filled areas. There are so many great stores and restaurants near the hotel, yet it was nice to get away from the craziness of midtown. There are also two subway stations just blocks away as making transportation a cinch. Anyone looking for a charming hotel at a great value look no further! We will be returning to Hotel Belleclaire and will recommend moving forward.

#1 comment: the rooms are NOT small, this is Manhattan! What they are, are very strangely shaped and already showing some age. What must have seemed very elegant parquet flooring as a sample already became worn and scuffed in my room. The oddly shaped hotel is located in what seems to be a former residential building. Expect hallways that twist and seem to go nowhere, some strange people milling about (who didn't seem to be guests), and very small elevators. But in terms of the rooms themselves, this is unbeatable value for Manhattan. Well decorated, well appointed, excellent shower/bath products, roomy bathroom, and a nice (standard) room for the price. Most of all, it's CLEAN. Will stay again!
