Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2014

The only negative aspect of our stay was that it was too short. The staff were lovely and accommodating, from helping with parking to storing our luggage so that we could continue to be in the city beyond check-out time. The room was clean and the hotel was located perfectly for our needs. Close to subway, a couple blocks from Central Park, near many dining options. Staying in NYC isn't cheap, but Hotel Belleclaire prices were reasonable in the grand scheme of things. We hope to be back.

The location was great, near the subway express stop at 72nd, the park, the natural history museum, good restaurants, can get to Broadway show door to door in 30 min by subway, etc. Nice neighborhood. Staff was very helpful. Our shower had issues and they sent someone to fix it immediately. The maintenance guy left and came back with a brand new shower head just to make it even nicer. The room was clean and fresh with nice wood floors. There were six of us. It was tight but do-able in one of their family rooms.

Excellent location close to 79th street subway stop, safe area, and decent room rates for NY. Having rooms with two beds was a plus also. There are breakfast places within a short walking distance. Could have used free coffee or a coffeemaker in the room in the morning though.

Promises for reliable and accessible wireless internet went unfulfilled. The staff was dismissive and no one wanted to take ownership of the lack of "free internet". Front desk acts like it has better things to do than take care of you.

The Belleclaire has been around long enough to host Mark Twain, but our room was totally new, clean, well-appointed, and well-laid out with a comfy mattress. The hallways are narrow. We stayed in a budget-priced room with a full bed. It was small but fine for our purposes -- a last-minute decision to stay overnight on a visit to NYC. We didn't plan to spend a lot of time in-room. The lobby has a coffee-breakfast bar. Not included in our $199 rate, but not overpriced. Also, there's free iced tea in the lobby. Staff greeted us as we pulled up in our car -- nice. We luckily found on street parking so I can't comment on parking. There was a glitch in our arrival. We had a prepaid room, bought online from the hotel's site the night before arrival . But, when we arrived, the front desk staffer could not find it; said, it was because we reserved late. That didn't make sense. We had the confirming email on our phone. The staffer intently worked her screen for ten minutes or so to find our room, and soon all was well. Overall, service staff aim to please. No problem leaving bags after check out for afternoon traipsing around. Bottom line: we would definitely return, but always arrive with proof of reservation.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms are on upper floors facing the back -- not pretty to look at it, but good for sound sl...

Lovely, welcoming atmosphere. Very helpful staff. Hardwood floors, clean, and nice views. Easy to get to from 79th Street subway, or by taxi. Easy walk to Lincoln Center. A few issues checking in, good.

Perfect location near Central Park and not far from 2 subway stations: 72th and 79th red line (1-2-39 that allows to reach Midtown and Downtown in a short time - The building is gorgeous in liberty style and the rooms are full optional; last but not least beds are very very confortable...this is important after 12 hours walking around the city :-) But the surprise was Mirio, a nice italian boy working at the reception: he was so helpful and kind!!! I do recommend this hotel for those who love quiet place, not a lot of impersonal rooms in a skyscraper - Near the hotel nice places for breackfast and a wonderful market named Fairy - have a nice stay :-)

Room Tip: ask for rooms with a view on hudson river and double bed
