My husband and I recently tied the knot in New York. As we are both from the UK and have little knowledge of where to stay in the Big Apple we were forced to surf the net where we were lucky enough to discover the Chelsea Lodge. We decided to book the 2 Garden Suites giving us separate rooms to share with friends until the wedding night.

The Chelsea Lodge was a real find. Great price, good location, friendly staff and the rooms were perfect! This accommodation is ideal for big groups (4 per room, as long as you don't mind sharing a bed). The bottom room is better for girls with a spacious shower room and lots of mirrors!

Big thanks to all at the Chelsea Lodge for making our special trip so memorable.
Having a good time for cheap!

The price is ridiculous, even for a private room; the staff is all smiles, they give you the key and don't bother you for the location is nice, with good cafes around, 15 minutes from downtown. I'll be back there in May, for sure!

This is a decent cheap hotel which is near to Chelsea. The furnishings and amenities are spartan, but it was many for an okay place to stay the night, not to remain in the hotel.

A fantastic hotel at very reasonable prices. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. A return visit to this wonderful hotel is on the cards for my next trip to NYC.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Chelsea Lodge Hotel

t Believe How Great This Place Is

from A TripAdvisor Member
For the budget price, you get 1) Great service/friendly staff, 2) Great Location, 3) Clean rooms, 4) Your own key to the front door 24/7. No, this is not the place for those who like to be pampered--it's a clean, safe, lovely little brownstone with all the necessities. I will DEFINITELY book Chelsea Lodge again next time I go to NYC.

Clean, Affordable, Perfect!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stay here everytime i'm in NYC, country feel in the middle of the city, freindly staff and great location, highly reccomend to all!

A Great Place to Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
Recently stayed at the Chelsea Lodge. Initially, I was wary about the idea of a shared toilet, but couldn't beat the rate in NYC. When I arrived, I was very surprised at the place. Unlike any hotel I've ever been to. The staff was friendly and as native New Yorkers, they were very knowledgable about the neighborhood, where to eat, shop, and have fun. I'd highly recommend staying at the Chelsea Lodge.


from A TripAdvisor Member
When you take a look around New York and see what else is on offer in the $80-110 price range, you can appreciate why the Chelsea Lodge is booked up fairly fast.

For the price ($105 +tax) for a double room, it's a bargain...

The ambience of the hotel is very pleasant, with a sort of rustic country decor to it. The rooms are pretty small, but if you've come to New York you'd have to be pretty dull to spend too much time there anyway. The shower cubicle and basin do the job just fine, and the communal toilets are very clean and just outside the rooms.

However it's the location that really clinches it. Located in the Chelsea district, the traditional brownstone flat front terrace is in a perfect position to explore what the city has to offer. The subway (23rd or 14th st stations) is close at hand, but it's so easy to walk everywhere you won't often need it. Times Square, Macy's, the Empire State building and the rest of midtown NY are just a 20 minute walk, and the bars and restaurants of Greenwich Village and SoHo are a similar distance away.

Chelsea itself has an excellen range of bars and restuarants for whatever budget or taste. Among others, the Nooch Thai/Japanese noodle bar, Market Cafe and Empire Diner - both trendy diners - and Cafeteria (bar/restaurant) were all pretty tasty.

Centrally located charm

from A TripAdvisor Member
So here's the deal: you're going to be staying in the heart of the city... midtown is just blocks away... you can walk to the lower east side... the A train is within three blocks... shopping... restaurants... we actually parked our rental car right in front, sort of a Faustian experience anywhere else. The staff is knowledgable and willing to help. Now, tell me again why you wanted to stay anywhere else.

this place is perfect

from vinny
anyone looking to do new york, whether on a budget or not should check out this place. i found it by looking on this site - we stayed for five nights and it was just so clean and good value for money. i'd read horror stories about getting bed bugs even in the most expensive hotels. not here tho!!!! you get a shower and basin in your room, a comfy double bed and clean towels and maid service every day. the staff are really friendly and you feel like you have your own appartment! no tacky neon lights.. and what a great area chelsea is. loads of great bars, restaurants, clubs and handy for the subway too. wholeheartedly recommend this place, u must book!

I felt like a native New Yorker !

from LittleMoo
I stayed at the Chelsea Lodge during a bitterly cold weekend in Dec 03, so the warmth of the rooms was very welcome, albeit a little stuffy at night. The staff are friendly and the lodge is too cute for words with flying ducks on the walls and 'new england' type decor in the rooms. The shower in my room was great - small but adequate with plenty of hot water. The toilet was just across the hall and i never had to queue.

When my Big Apple Greeter (a New Yorker of 20 years) called at the lodge she couldn't believe she hadn't heard of the place before and said she would be recommending it to her out of town guests in future !

Although I travelled alone, I felt safe, warm and happy staying here and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again - so much better than these huge anonymous travel 'inn' places.

Two thumbs up

from adelangelox
Would 100% recommend Chelsea Lodge to anyone looking for a well priced, clean, cute, friendly place to stay in NYC.

Small room - but not a problem at all, and $95/ night is great for NYC. Although I wasnt totally keen on the idea of sharing a toilet at first (no need to share shower as there is a cute little one in the room) there was absolutely no problem as they were always spotless and you never had to wait.

The staff were great - very helpful and friendly. The location is mid way between the Central park, Times Square etc attractions and the SoHo, Greenwich scenes. Definately walking distances for the traveller who likes to walk, but if you are too tired the NYC subway is great also and there is a close stop to the Lodge.

Also close by- if you are looking for a fabulous palce to eat, try the Grammercy Tavern (also on West 20th, down near the intersection with Broadway) or for a quick, tasty and healthy bite, Better Burger at 8th and 23rd.

This place deserves its consistently great reveiws. Would definately stay there again.

Would definitely stay here again...

from oilslick
My boyfriend and I stayed in the suites from October 8 through the October 10.

I thought the suite was fabulous. We had our own kitchen and garden, and the place was spacious and clean. It was very welcoming after a long day of walking and sightseeing - seemed like coming home to our own studio apartment!

The location is great... Chelsea is in lower Manhattan, close to all the places we wanted to go. The subway is three blocks away from Chelsea Lodge, which is very convenient. The neighborhood is quiet and has lots of restaurants and shops nearby.

I would definitely recommend Chelsea Lodge due to the nice staff (they allowed us to leave our luggage after check out to give us more time in the city), the location, and cleanliness.

Everything you could ask for in a budget hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed here the last three nights of our NY stay and absolutely loved it. The room was more spacious than we thought and everything was well thought out -- we were welcomed with Hershey's kisses on the pillows and bus/subway maps were placed in the room for our convenience.

The room came with a tiny shower (a bonus) and there were more than enough toilets to share among rooms. Everything was very well maintained and clean.

A big shout out to Jose at the desk who was an absolute dear, even helping us with our luggage up the stairs.

The neighbourhood itself is charming with loads of cafes, little bookshops and art galleries. It's also close to Times Square (we walked home one night from there and were surprised that we could).

Very nice. Chelsea Lodge made our New York experience extra special.

Top Local Tips for New York City

Bus from JFK This is a cheap way into the city at only $27 return and they go to Grand Central and Penn Station. Once there just jump on the Subway and get a one day pass for just $7.50, so cheap!

Funky Resturaunt At A Great Price For lunch or dinner with real New Yorkers in a slightly out the touristy place go to VYNL on 754 9th Ave/W50th St. Fantastic service and totally funky.

use the subway!!! Do Not be afraid to use the Subway. it definately adds to the whole new york experience.
