No title - expert review
Hotel 17 may not boast ample amenities, but it has all the character of a loveable, tough-as-nails grandfather, who of course would call all those extras new-age hotel hooey.This 100-year-old building has been the subject of photo shoots for publications like Vogue and GQ. It's no surprise. The upho...

This hotel is located on a serene and leafy block. If it looks familiar, that's because you've seen it in Woody Allen's Manhattan Murder Mystery. Not only was part of the movie filmed here, but Madonna has also posed at the hotel for a photo shoot. Even though this isn't a luxury property, models, a...

The Newly Renovated Hotel 17 is a chic budget hotel conveniently located in Downtown New York near the East Village, Gramercy Park, Greenwich Village, and Washington Square Park. A few years ago Woody Allen filmed his movie Manhattan Murder Mystery at Hotel 17. Madonna has stayed here, as well as ma...

The newly renovated and improved Hotel 17 has just gone through a dramatic restoration project improving and upgrading all old world style rooms. Hotel 17 was voted Best Budget Hotel of 1997 by New York Magazine. Entertainment Weekly voted Hotel 17 in their top 10 Cool Places to Stay a few years bac...

An old New York experience at an old New York price. - user review
A friend and I were seeing a band at Irving Plaza and decided to make a rock & roll night of it and stay at a hotel nearby (our only other options being the $400/night W or Gramercy Park). I am accustomed to relatively upscale travel and am also a bit of cleanfreak/germaphobe, so my expectations wer...

Small rooms for three, excellent shared bath - user review
A nice and small hotel in a great location.You won't feel the "weight" of shared bath because they're constantly clean and you have 4 of them on each floor !Just be prepa...

Cool and Cheap - user review
I always stay here if I'm travelling alone its safe, clean and quiet. If you can get a room overlooking the street that's the best place to be; light, views of gorgeous apartments, tree tops and a sense of space. The communal bathrooms are spotless and the staff straight forward but helpful. The dar...

Mixed Feelings - user review
I was in a love hate relationship with this place when i stayed. I'll first state the "love" part of it: I really enjoyed the location of hotel 17 it was only about 2 blocks away from the union square subway, also, there were a lot of places to shop in that area as well as nice delis and r...

Cheap and Cheerful - user review
My mother and brother stayed here in June and were very happy. The neighborhood is a delightful tree lined oasis of brownstones, it's an easy walk to the east village and the subway at Union Square, it's quiet, and best of all it's cheap. This isn't the Ritz, but if you don't need a pool and roomser...

Fantastic place in perfect location - user review
This is a charming place to stay. The staff is friendly and accomodating. The rooms are clean and "good enough". Anyone who has spent time in NYC knows that small is the standard. The shared bathrooms are clean and not an inconvenience. Check your high expectations at the door if you are e...

Never again - user review
What a dump! I stayed here in Oct. 2000. The most important thing I learned from my experience is to NEVER stay at a place that does not accept credit cards and requires cash or traveler's checks upfront for the entire stay. Do yourself a favor and avoid this "hotel". Spend the extra money...

Great bargain in Downtown Manhattan for under $100/night! - user review
just came back from a stay at Hotel 17. when I was first looking for a room in Manhattan for less than $100/night, most of what I saw was either way on the West Side or way up in the 50's (i.e. 51st & 3rd) and I didn't wa...

Nice hotel for the price... - user review
My teen daughter and I stayed one night at Hotel 17. The location (and price) led us to try it. It was walking distance to Union Plaza (concert hall) and Union Square. In order to get 2 beds, we reserved a triple size room. ...

NO PRIVATE BATH...why is this not mentioned?? - user review
This hotel does NOT deserve a 4 star review! And neither of the glowing reviews mention that the bath and toilet are DOWN THE HALL This should be spelled out on the hotel's web page, and if you book through Orbitz, they won't mention it either.This is the USAwe have private bathrooms in hotel roomsU...

Great place to sleep...good location - user review
As far as staying in NY on the cheap this is the place to go. I ended up in a very small room, but it was clean and well kept. The age of the hotel shows but it is not run down at all. I had no trouble at all with the bathroom. There were two on my floor for aproximately 8 rooms on the wing. They sa...

Convenient clean and reasonable - user review
Bed was firm, room was clean, sink in room was convenient as bathroom was down the hall. Bathroom down hall was very clean, water pressure was great. Each hall has two bathrooms. If they are both busy, there are others on other floors to use. Elevator was great to have. Hotel is quick three block wa...

Cheap NYC hotel - user review
Good for those on tight budget and good location to Easat Village. But don't expect any frills. Got a room w/ someone who had smoked cigars, very strong odor, even after asking for a non smoking room. Sheets were clean, but beds made haphazardly, no fitted sheets, just top sheet thrown over mattress...

good for the price - user review
good position, near to the village and shopping areas, 5th avenue as well, small rooms, clean and very friendly staff, nice restaurants in the area would book again Traveler's tip on shopping.Coff...

Great budget hotel in Lower Manhattan. - user review
Hotel 17 is the best value in Manhattan, primarily because it is very clean, in a great location, friendly and prompt service and costs very little by comparison. They also have several triple rooms, i.e. a double and single bed, which works out when our daughter joins us. Some people might not like...

Awful experience - user review
I am not one to complain but I feel that the only way to keep others from the same experience that my fiance and I had is to describe our service. I would feel bad if the place was just a disaster but the service was acceptable but that was not even the case. First of all, we were only going for one...

Loved my stay at Hotel 17. - user review
I enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel i.e. the elevator and wall paper. My room was a good size and clean. The ceiling was high and the temperature was perfect. The bathroom was clean and I didn't have to wait. My television had only a few channels but I was not in NY to watch tv. It was very quiet ...

Best NY Hotel for the Money - user review
I had really no problem with the hotel. Everything was clean, staff was polite, I had no problems with my reservation, and the room was a lot bigger than most of the hotel rooms in NY for the same price. I never once had to wait for anybody in the shared bathroom, which was always clean. The only is...

At first I was nervous - user review
I haven't stayed in a shared bath hotel since I backpacked through Europe in the 80's. For a one night quick trip to New York, I needed to find a hotel on the cheap. Based on the reviews, I decided to give Hotel 17 a try. I must say, not bad at all. Very clean room and the bath down the hall as well...

Pleasantly surpised - user review
I was recently in NYC for a concert, and just needed an inexpensive, clean place to stay that was close to the concert venue. Hotel 17 fit the bill for that, but I was not expecting such a charming little place...very old New York . The staff was friendly and helpful, the bathrooms were immaculate, ...

My heater broke! - user review
I woke up at 4 am shivering because my heater wasn't working, so I went down to the receptionist who sucked. Luckily the janitors and maids were nicer. It got fixed in about 30 minutes, I went back to sleep in my hoodie. Oh there was a hair drier in my room, I used it to heat up my bed! lol If the h...

Pleasant Stay - user review
I'd never stayed in a hotel with shared bathrooms, so I was a bit skeptical at first. But surprisingly, the bathrooms were VERY clean, and I never had to wait to use one. If you're looking to save a few bucks, I highly recommend this hotel. Staff was very helpful in providing directions, and hotel h...

Great deal for the price, good location and helpful staff - user review
If you are going to New York City Hotel 17 is a very good deal. It isn't a five star hotel, but then you aren't paying five star prices. It is clean and that isn't true of all inexpensive NYC hotels. Many Europeans use it and the only potential hassel are the rooms without their own bathroom. These ...

Not bad for price range - user review
If you are looking for a basic room as a home base for exploring Manhatttan, you should consider the Hotel 17. The halls and the lobby were dark and narrow, but attractive. The clerk on duty the night we arrived was unhelpful and unable to find our reservations, offering no apology when I presented ...

Great deal! - user review
My parents and my brother shared a room for three at Hotel 17 and they loved it. I booked the room for them a few week before and I wasn't sure about the shared bathroom situation. It was always clean, quiet and they never had to wait for the bathroom. The neighborhood is safe and it's very close to...

include it in your choices - user review
Our room was clean and had big free space. Not noisy. It had two big windows facing the street in front of the hotel. 2 clean bathrooms on each floor. TV, Clean towels, soap, shampoo,and conditionner were provided. Sheets and blankets looked clean and good smell. This Hotel is not far from union squ...

a good manhattan hotel - user review
Overall I was satisfied with my stay. The cost came out pretty cheap compared to other manhattan hotels. The room was pretty small but I really didn't need more room than that. If you are just looking for a place to spend the night and don't care about the luxury of the room, this is your hotel. The...

Quaint Place to Stay - user review
Prior to booking this hotel we were a bit concerned about sharing a bathroom. Although a bit unusual, it was not at all a problem. Only one small elevator services the entire building, so if you can't negotiate stairs you'll need to be patient enough to wait for the elevator. On balance we had a del...

Great Budget Alternative - user review
The hotel is tucked away in a quiet street in the East Village with Union Square just 3 blocks away. There's alot of bars and cafes in the area. If you're looking for a comfortable place to lay your head in New York and your on a ...

Charming - user review
This charming hotel had a small room, but was affordable and in a great location. Close to subway and in a beautiful neighborhood. I wish I could have spent more time walking around the neighborhood. Hotel was in area safe for walking home late at night; I walked back from the subway past midnight o...

Share a Bathroom with Strangers! - user review
Don't you think it's pretty important to mention that a room at Hotel 17 does NOT include a private bath? I think it's pretty dishonest of both the hotel and Orbitz no...
