Sure, you are uptown, but that's the greatest asset for the Hotel Belleclaire. Close to Central Park, and only a block away from the subway, this property offers the elegance of a lovingly restored (and subtly modernized) building with all of the modern trappings. The rooms are spacious and clean, the beds comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and free of the commercial hype of Midtown, yet not inconvenient at all.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side face Broadway, which can be a bit more noisy in the overnight hours, though n...

Old, dated, small unit. Narrow hallways and rooms with no view except fire escape alleyways. Good location and would only return with generous discount specials. Window AC unit very loud, bring plugs!

This was our second summer trip through NYC where we stayed at the Belleclaire. Both stays were great. The hotel is charming, very much boutique hotel feel. The rates were very reasonable given the area. The staff was friendly, even upgrading us because they were out of cots for the kids (we checked in at 8pm). We love the upper west side, and this has become out go-to hotel.

Our two night stay at the Hotel Bellclaire for my wife's birthday was a very pleasant experience. The hotel lobby has the feel of some of the small European hotels we have stayed in.Tthe jugs of refeshing lemon water, iced tea, and other infused waters that awaited you in the lobby were greatly appreciated upon your return from a nice long walk in nearby Central park. a quit tree lined street greats you as you exit the hotel, but a short walk away is vibrant upper Broadway with many shops and stores. On average, it was a $15 cab ride to Times Square or Rockefeller Center. After observing the throngs of tourists and visitors running around the city at this time of year, it was a pleasure to retreat to the quiet of the hotel on the upper West Side.

This hotel is located in a great spot - plenty of restaurants, shops, and easy access to public transportation. The room I stayed in was small, but well appointed. My only complaint was the window A/C unit. The fan was incredibly loud (even on low), and when it would kick on in the middle of the night, I inevitably woke up.

I had high expectations as we were staying in a Parlour Suite (best rooms in the hotel). Hotel staff were all fine, however we had some issues with the room. When we arrived the fridge wasn't working. If I wanted to use the free wifi I had to sit in the hallway which was really annoying. We advised reception and it was never fixed. Out toilet also kept clogging & not flushing to the point where we were sick of calling reception and asked them to leave the plunger with us (not very romantic for a honeymoon). The price was good however would I choose to stay here again? - No - I would rather pay more somewhere else unfortunately.

This boutique hotel was a breath of fresh air. Although we travelers were dressed informally, the staff was dressed very businesslike and were very professional and efficient. Great location. Good stores nearby. Stand up NY comedy club nearby was fun.
