Wonderful as Always

I am frequent vistor to Hotel 17. Every stay has been consistently great. The rooms are clean and the shared baths are spotlessly cleaned throughout the day. The staff is courteous and professional. The hotel is on a quiet beautiful street and yet close to anything a human could desire. I generally keep this information to myself. I fear the word will get out and the hotel will change.

Great Place

Never thought this would be the Gem it is. Ideal for business travel, though sold as a tourist place. Great staff and a great room in a great location.

Great New York Getaway

The hotel is very small and you share the bathroom with other hotel guests, but it was clean and very convenient for me. I would recommend the hotel to anyone visiting New York on a budget.

Great value for our stay in New York

My son and I had a triple room, for $150/night (including taxes), free Wi-Fi, in an excellent, very safe location. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Easy walk to subway, nice quiet neighborhood, central location. Excellent value for our trip. We were able to get wherever we wanted to go, by subway, within minutes. Room was very clean, shared bathrooms were just fine - we never had to wait. Soap and shampoo provided. It was everything we needed at an excellent price for New York.

Good standard hotel

I was a little hesitant because the reviews weren't that great, but this hotel turned out to be perfect for our needs. We needed to stay one or two night in the city, basically just a decent place to sleep. The staff is very friendly and helpful with giving directions and it's located a few blocks from union square station so you can get around easy. I didn't mind the shared bathrooms, two bathrooms in the hall shared with the other guests, the bathrooms were clean and the sharing did not bother me. Overall, would recommend.

Great value in Manhattan!

How often have you ever said THAT? Well, that's how I'd describe Hotel 17. If you're looking to stay in a convenient, clean, no frills hotel in Manhattan to experience NYC on the cheap, you can do no better. I make a habit of staying here every month or two when I get the urge to explore the greatest city in the world. If you're looking for amenities or pampering from the staff, look elsewhere. But if you want a clean, well located place to drop your head and recharge for another day in the city, this is it. Note: this hotel offers shared bathrooms, so be aware. That said, they are always clean and I've never had a problem with availability in the 5 or 6 times I've stayed here.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a great little breakfast place one block away called Joe Jr's, on the corner of 3rd ave and 16th st. Quick breakfast, friendly staff, awesome blueberry pancakes. You know it's good because it's filled with locals. Looks like a hole-in-the-wall tiny diner, but it's the real deal.
