Every year a group of us meet up in NYC from different parts of the country. For 10 years we chose a different location in Manhattan so we can explore different sections of NYC. We have decided we will forever come back to this wonderful place! The rooms were so comfortable and roomy, bathrooms were large for NY standards. We...

Having traveled and lived in Europe, this in felt like coming home to a pensione! Eric and Ryan were extremely welcoming. The breakfast was exactly the right amount of food to start the day. The location was extremely convenient to the subways to explore all NYC had to offer. Will recommend to traveling friends in the future.

What a great find! This little hotel is right in the midst of Manhattan, and yet was very reasonably priced. The room is very clean, nicely decorated, and spacious by Manhattan standards, with a private bathroom. The bed is comfy, and free Wi-Fi is nice. Eric, the host, is super friendly and eager to help us in any way. In...

This inn is a mixed bag. Our Deluxe Room had a comfortable and attractive king size bed, a tiny settee so low to the ground that neither of us could get out of it without help, no room phone, a tv the size of a computer, stained carpeting (including a round throw rug next to the bed with stains that...

Customer Service Fail! The first night our shower was broken. Things happen, we get it. Unfortunately another room wasn't available to change us to that night and no one could fix it that night. Ok, unfortunate but we get it. Night two, we return at 7pm after a long day of work. Apparently a pipe had burst in the building...

More than I expected for the price and better than I could have hoped for, this inn is now my Number One choice for travel to NYC. Located within half a block of several subway lines, close to hip watering holes, comedy clubs and within a sort trip to sites and venues up or down town. Inside is very welcoming...

My wife and I spent just a night with our 10-year-old daughter on our way to visit friends in Brooklyn. We wished we could have stayed longer. Our room on the third floor facing the church next door was spacious and quiet. Our daughter loved the pull-down Murphy bed that was tucked in an alcove by the window. Our own...

Arrived late from airport, but email instructions from Eric easy to follow for a novice visitor and easily found our way in from the street, likewise room details left in reception were fine.

We came to NYC over Spring Break 2016 to look at colleges and otherwise enjoy the city. Townhouse Inn is located perfectly in Chelsea, with 2 subway stops less than a block away. Our rooms were on the 3rd floor (#32 and #33) and very quiet. Our teenagers shared a room and it was comfortable for the 3 of them,...

Accommodation in New York is always difficult, but with this hotel, we were pretty satisfied! Please be aware that there is no 24h reception, we arrived at around 10pm so the owner gave us a password to open a lock at the entrance where we could find keys to open the door. Not really the best way to start a...

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.

“Don't book a room at this hotel.”
  • Broken furniture (or maybe dumpster dive
  • We're not FANS of dust build-up (enjoy the snow machine)
  • Welcome to your suite (don't bother covering this one up with the faux sheep skin)
  • SHOKINGLY horrendous (Don't like the clanking radiator? But still want heat?)
  • Just gross (carpet everywhere looked like this)
  • Torn blankets (or, another dumpster dive score?)
  • Carpeted lights? Carpeted with dust, that is.
  • Thought we would be looking at a painting, not a carving
