Charming European hotel in great Gramercy locale

Husband and I were in town for an event and visiting friends. Bed was comfy, room had old-world charm and super big by NYC standards. Great location - we used to live in the area and loved it. Parks, restaurants, cafes, bars, drugstores, etc. nearby. If you don't mind sharing a bathroom, which we didn't, this is the best deal in the city! 2 bathrooms per wing kept clean, but we also had our own sink in our double room which you may not get if you book a single room. Front desk was professional and helped us reserve a very reasonably-priced car service to the airport on check-out day.

A lucky find!

When I booked a last minute trip to New York in November 2014, I was frantic to find a hotel that wouldn't clean out my bank account. I needed 4 nights, 5 days, and in New York City, that could ruin a recent college grad with no income! I searched and searched and finally found Hotel 17, a small, clean, safe, cheap hotel perfect for someone needing a room to sleep in. While the single room was LITERALLY just a bed, side table and TV, I was never bothered and it was in a quiet area. The staff was friendly and helpful when I needed it. The only potential drawback is that the bathrooms are shared on the floor. However, I never once in 5 days had to wait for a bathroom or shower and they were cleaned often. It was not a problem, I promise you. For a good price and a safe area, I would absolutely stay in Hotel 17 again and recommend it to anyone else like me!

One word Brilliant! !!

I have stayed in similarly priced hotels around Mid/Downtown Manhattan with terrible experiences. I was more than happy with what Hotel 17 had to offer. Will be back.

Hotel 17

Perfect for NYC. Great location, close to Union Square seemingly in a nice neighbourhood. Great options for food around the hotel as well. Bathrooms were always available and clean and it was nice and warm considering the regular freezing temperatures in Feb!

Single Girl On Her First Trip to NYC

Overall it was a great stay. Shared bathrooms were almost always available on my 4 night stay and it was really quiet. The neighborhood was really quite domestic which I did not expect. Honestly the Hotel is older so you have the peeling wallpaper and old appliances with a slightly lumpy mattress but I was overall pleased with the convenience and the price.

Nice place in a city that never sleeps

A nice little room for a single traveler. Reminds me of the nice little places back in Japan. The shared bathroom was always clean and there was never a line. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Close to the subway, but far enough from the bustle to have a little peace. It was almost like I had my own little place in the city for the week.
