We enjoyed our stay at Hotel 17 during our recent trip to New York; it was in a great location close to the subway and the price was good for NYC. We always felt safe around the hotel, even at night. The rooms were simple and small but clean. We were fine sharing bathrooms with others on the floor but...

As others have noted, pretty small room but clean. Shared bathrooms (2 per 7 rooms) never presented a problem. The location - 2 blocks from son's apartment with very convenient parking options - was the key factor for choosing this hotel for a two night stay. It did not disappoint.

I spent a night here once when the Manhattan hotel prices were exceptionally high, as they can often be during peak season. The rooms, while small, are very clean, well kept and with all your basic amenities. Most rooms have shared bathrooms, which are kept clean as well. The location of this mid town hotel is what makes it ideal...

What a great place!! super easy to find its about 3 block away from "union square" pretty much all subways stop there or they will get you to a station to transfer. We bought a 7 day subway pass for 31$us and we had unlimited rides for the week! Once we found the place we got our room on the...

Location is good and very close to Union Square. I stayed there during the winter special offer so I got pretty good deal. The first night I stayed at a room without a wash basin and I was told that they were out of this type of room when I asked for it. The room is really tiny and I...

Hotel was in a great location close to Union Square. Every sub we took seem to stop here which was super convenient. Pretty quiet neighborhood in Gramercy Park. Room was very small but reminded us of what NYC would feel like. Hotel is very old. Shared bathrooms were never any issue. I did not like the smell of this hotel....

I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions which speaks for itself. Great value and in a great location downtown and a short hop away from Union Square. Yes it's basic but if you want to do Manhattan on a budget then this is the place. Grader you Diner a block away do great meals....breakfasts especially so. Loved the...

The location was perfect, close enough to get to sites, getting used to the sub is a must and saves so much time, good pubs and diners in the area too, plus far away enough that the prices are more reasonable than Times Square area. Hotel was clean and staff friendly. However, we must have drawn the short straw with...

I have stayed at Hotel 17 many times over the years and have found no place that offers the combination of excellent location, neighborhood, access to public transportation, cleanliness, orderliness, beautiful architecture and interiors, friendly, efficient service, flexibility in room offerings and the best prices in town for all this. It is truly a New York treasure.
