                Location was wonderful; Chelsea neighborhood, near many improv. theaters.

                The front desk charged me $40.00 more then was quoted on Booked.net. Really disappointing to get the bait and switch.

                The staff were all AMAZING. They helped us with everything we needed including where to go, what to do in NYC!

                friendly staff

                very bad relation of performance/price: room only slightly larger than bed (no chair!), air conditioner blowing directly on the bed, nothing works correctly, and all that for 140 $ per night!

                I liked that when a guy turned up sick as a dog in my room, the staff at the desk were helpful in getting me a new room so I wouldn't also get sick. After some earlier exchanges with staff were rocky, I was afraid I was going to have to really insist and be annoying, but the one guy I had to talk to in my moment of need turned out to be pretty cool. He took my point of view on it and got me a new room, quickly.

                I hope it was just my experience, but I found the other travelers in my room to be uncouth and very noisy. They made so much noise, I could hardly sleep even with earplugs in. I was there for five nights, and I didn't get a single good night of sleep. They were really inconsiderate and uncool in my book. I extended a lot of courtesy, such as not making noise when I come in late, and having my stuff all ready to go the night before I have to leave early in the morning so when I go I don't have to shuffle around for an hour disturbing everyone. I hope the twats from Brazil that shared my room are reading this and realize that they could have been 99% more considerate.

                Cheap hotel with great location, in the middle of Manhattan, 2 minutes walk to Penn Station/Madison Square. Friendly staff. Free tea and coffee in the lobby from 7 do 11 am. Free Wi-Fi in the room. There is also a luggage storage, which is very useful (2 USD per 1 piece of luggage). Very good choice to stay for 1-2 nights in Manhattan.

                The room (single room) was very small and it was very hot inside. A bit loud (but it's Manhattan, so it is normal).

              • Group of friends
                6.2

                It was one of the cheaper en-suite hotels available on Manhattan.

                I got what I paid for considering that all Manhattan lodgings are very expensive.

                Very good price/quality option: special price was a really good deal for the location. Great for the traveller looking for a cheap, no-thrills but clean hotel in the center.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                The Chelsea Star Hotel is nestled in the heart of Manhattan, with a private secured doorway entry right off 30th. It's very artistic with flavor, each room is different and doors and hallways are adorned with ny memorabilia. In the middle is a lighted, umbrella covering patio table terrace. It is quaint, charming, and in the perfect location to shopping, clubs and attractions. The staff is more than helpful and friendly, it is a privately owned treasure. They even have some rooms with kitchenetttes, perfect for families. They also have shared bathroom rooms for less, and ones with bunks for the younger age travelers looking to save alot of money. The hotel is safe and secure, offering free wifi and coffee/tea. Highly recommend!!!

                The rooms and hotels were not impeccably clean, just clean. The carpets are a bit dated, however it was so awesome and such a great deal with the perfect location that we really didn't care! Oh, and they have no soda machine or ice...however there's shops next door that do.

                Free internet.

                Dirty sheets, shared bathrooms, a lot of noise coming from the street, couldn't sleep all night because of that!

                First and foremost, location. Then price.

                Mattress was bad. Small rubble falling from the brick ceiling.

              • Group of friends
                6.6

                The location was great, and the staff was very helpful with directions. We were also allowed to check in a few hours early.

                The hotel was very expensive for what it provided. We got the double with shared bath - there was not any storage space or hangers. It was only a place to sleep, not to relax or hang out. I recommend this place for a short-term basis, if you are youngish, and will be out of the room most of the time.

                Smokers area outside within the hotel! U got to meet people it was very intimate 'hotel'. Don't expect the Marriott. However it was very clean

                No real breakfast as stated plus the hotel picture is to accurate.

                The staff was very courtious and helpful.

                The room was very noisy; there were not enough wall hangers in the room or in the adjacent toilet. The tv have very few channels. The wall colors and painting of camels coming across the desert were unpleasant.

              • Group of friends
                5.8

                It's not very clean and some facilities are faulty. Lack of an elevator is a minus but good thing they've got friendly staff that can help you with luggages. It's a bit costly for its facilities but the location is great.
