"A great hotel for the price in Midtown- a sleeper"
I found this terrific hotel by doing a hotels.com search by location and price. I was skeptical that a $240 room in Midtown could be any good. This is my new best hotel for Midtown! Great people, decent rooms, well located, and included a real breakfast.The lounge was homey and well appointed. I would recommend this hotel for business and/or romance. […] Not a $500 a night room, but a great small hotel for value. I have paid much more for much less. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We totally enjoyed the experience. Staff was extraordinary in their service. Continental breakfast was great. Only complaint was there were no conveniently located electrical outlets in the room. Had to plug in phone to recharge in the bathroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and cozy"
This is a nice European style hotel well located in Midtown. The service was very good - helpful an pleasant concierege. The breakfast and cocktail hour area being included is a big plus!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wondeful faded beauty with great staff"
One of the BEST hotel stays I have had in a long time. The staff are fabulously attentive and friendly without being too overwhelming. My room was quite spacious and very lovely. You can tell that a fairly long time ago the rooms were incredibly lush, and instead of being redecorated they have been allowed to fade a little with time. The result is EXTREMELY […] charming. I recommend it and I will return on my next stay in Manhattan. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Well located charming boutique hotel"
My sister and I had a lovely visit at this charming hotel. The staff was very helpful, the breakfast was amazing and the room was very comfortable. We both will return to this hotel in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great surprise!"
Very impressed with this Hotel as I didn't know what to expect. Main reason for staying initially was lack of bed bug reports and fair pricing on our overnight stay. The guys at the desk were pleasant and helpful with a good sense of humor and didn't give off the frat house vibe I was half expecting as I approached them. Rooms were better than expected […] however some of the bathroom grout and fixtures need some help. Continental breakfast was THE best I've ever experienced hands down. This place has the New York charm without the bedbugs. I'd much rather stay at a place like this over the boring Hilton's and Sheraton's any day. As long as prices don't go through the roof - I will definitely be back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Location- Great for Business or Pleasure"
Charming, intimate, very European in feeling. Not your big convention style hotel which is a plus! If you demand the latest, greatest, and sleekest of hotel accommodations, this hotel is not for you. If you want quiet, personal attention, and the feeling of comfort and intimacy in the middle of the vibrancy of a fantastic NYC location, this hotel is […] for you. This hotel is a member of The Library group and having stayed at both, I prefer the Elysee. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Charmer-Would Stay Here Again"
Has a quiet, old-world feel to it. The staff was helpful in every respect. The rooms are a bit small as one would expect in an older building, but they were clean and nicely decorated. Every afternoon, they served something akin to a "tea" for the guests...a very nice touch.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not bad to the discerning traveler"
Very European style hotel. A better restaurant on-site would've been nice. There is a deli across the street for quick bites though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and staff."
Love the breakfast and afternoon tea/wine and the homey second floor. Very friendly and helpful staff. super location and will definitely will visit again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay"
I loved staying at this great hotel. My overall experience was terrific, and the staff was really nice. My only tiny suggestion is that they make it easier to plug chargers into outlets (which are all on the floor behind furniture).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Best Kept Secret in New York"
I was pleasantly surprised by how wonder the hotel and staff was. I intend to stay at that Hotel when ever I am in New York. It feels like home!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very good. We came to N Y for theater but the location was too far from the theater district. Otherwise a wonderful experience. Walter and Diane CoffeyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel, Great location-friendly staff"
first time to stay here. Everyone was friendly, the front desk, the doormen, the maids. Enjoyed the Monkey Bar-great service all around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My home from home in NYX"
A wonderful peaceful hotel in midtown. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The decor and rooms are cosily old-fashioned. Of course there are never enough outlets for phones, computers etc, but that's sadly still the case in most hotels. In the afternoon they put out wine and cheese in the lounge area. Wonderful! And this is also where […] they put out the breakfast (included!) in the morning. It's a wonderful atmosphere and really makes the hotel home in this very busy city. Would always come back to the Elysee! Location is great - walk to Fifth Avenue, Grand Central Terminal, Central Park . . . what else can you wish for? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Serene and classy hotel in Manhattan"
This hotel is well position in the middle of two busy avenues 5th and Madison. A gem of tranquility in an urban sea . Walking distance to Central Park and other interesting spots in NYC. $7 cab ride to any museum on uptown if you get tired. Hotel offers a healthy breakfast of fresh fruit bagels and yogurt. Walk around the corner on Madison to cafe Europa […] for more breakfast and sandwich choices. Many small venues restaurants on 5th Avenue surprisingly inexpensive for this part of town. Unique rooms! and a bit bigger than average NY standard I stayed on the 6th floor Queen Suite high enough to be spare from street noise. Internet connection was ok. If you want to stay away from impersonal, monotonous looking, crowded places Hotel Élysée is your place! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A nice place to be in NYC"
It really had a very homelike quality which I really enjoyed. Even though it might not be the fanciest in terms of linens, bath fixtures etc., the hotel had everything we needed and everything was very well kept. The staff was invariably warm and friendly. For the price and location, I think this hotel is great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good hotel experience"
the only negatives were that the bathroom soaps were never replaced until we asked. It used to be that two fresh bars were supplied daily. Also, the toilet paper was clearly cheaper, not plush, but something I would not expect in a quality hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I love this hotel!"
This is our hotel of preference when we are in NYC. Small but modern and a delightful second floor breakfast/coffee room. Great location, helpful staff, comfortable rooms. A very very good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very comfortable european boutique hotel atmosphere with lovely large salon and quiet library. Good breakfast and helpful staff. Coffee and tea and cookies always available. Bedrooms are small but comfortable. Easy walk to central park and theater districtGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, great hotel"
Excellent hotel; great value for the location and quality. As a frequent business traveler I was quite surprised at how nice this hotel was. It would be great for business (quiet rooms), a romantic stay or a shopping visit to NYC. Service was fabulous! I will definitely stay here on my next visit to NYC.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Elysee is my favorite in Manhattan."
I am a frequent visitor to Manhattan. This hotel is perfect for me in every way. It is very well located, small, quiet and elegant. Everything is clean and in good working condition. The included breakfast service is in a nice, sunny, well furnished area that is quiet and homey.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel had an intimate ambience, cultivated by the super friendly and helpful doormen and front desk. Decor made you feel like you were in a smaller European hotel (a good thing!) and the room was suprisingly big, for a NYC hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for a quiet, couple getaway."
I gave this hotel 4 instead of 3 stars because in the areas the hotel lacked, it made up for in friendliness of staff, free continental breakfast, and the wine/cheese offering in the evening. The hotel is old but quaintly so. I think they have made an effort to keep it in working order and nicely decorated. I would stay here again. The hotel was quiet, […] mostly older couples-30's-60's age range. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great spot to rest your head in NYC"
The hotel was absolutely charming -- not a big, impersonal high rise. We also found the location to be ideal for all of our touring plans -- it was centrally located.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Elysee: Nice hotel and great value."
My cab pulled up and I was greeted immediately by friendly staff. I received the royal treatment at check in too and was given a room upgrade without asking and told about their happy hour, breakfast, etc. A very nice suite at 1/3 the Four Seasons rate! Great value for a very comfortable room. Don't tell anyone. Keep the secret so they'll have rooms […] for me when I definitely go back!! Shhhhh. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Elysee in New York - best location & staff"
A pleasure to stay at Hotel Elysee. It was a wonderful experience. My room was a great size and hotel staff were efficient and helpful.

the best bits; free cheese and wine, super location, very comfy beds, super helpful staff, lovely breakfast. The not so good bit; only one lift can take a while to catch it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic friendly staff"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. All the staff were very helpful and always had a smile on their faces and couldn't do enough for us which made us feel very much at home. The location was perfect very near to 5th Avenue for shopping and near to Central Park when the weather was nice to stroll around. The amenities at the hotel were first […] class, always something to eat or drink at any time of day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent mid-town location"
This hotel enjoys an excellent reputation. I have stayed here since 1985 and have always had enjoyable stays. Staff are courteous and helpful and this hotel is strongly recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel Elysee is like few other Mid-town hotels in that you feel that the staff want you there. Excellent location, free wifi, free breakfast and free drinks in the evening are great benefits.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Boutique hotel in NY"
A small boutique hotel with amenities. Generous continental breakfast an wine and cheese in the evening. Small room but comfortable a room at the back of the hotel would perhaps be quieter. The front desk staff are handsome and outstanding in their effort and service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dec in NY"
Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New York. Cannot fault it. Situation- mid town. Close to many attractions. Staff- so helpful, nothing any trouble. Breakfast-excellent choice, continental style. Beds- just sink into them, so comfortable. Evening drinks and cheese- what a lovely way to finish a hard day shopping and sight seeing. Plus the […] chance to talk to fellow guests if you wish. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Extremely classy hotel with service to match."
Wonderful experience, from the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms to the attention to detail. The staff were professional and very helpful and always pleasant and welcoming. The choice at breakfast was excellent and it was a roomy and comfortable environment. This hotel is in a perfect location for walking about in midtown Manhattan, with the added […] benefit that the street was quiet at night. We will return to this hotel and I recommend it highly.

"left us wanting to go back!"
Just returned from a great stay at Hotel Elysee. We could not fault the service at all the rooms were very clean and comfortable and the location was great too. We will definitely return to the hotel when we next visit New York we were made very welcome. The things that made our trip so special was the quality of service especially the girls at breakfast, […] the breakfast itself - lovely fresh fruit, cereal, croissants, coffee and boiled eggs and they even accommodated my gluten free diet. The wine and nibbles from 5pm-8pm was a lovely touch too. Yes the street is noisy but you are in the heart of new York every other hotel would just be the same and it didn't prevent us sleeping "New York the city that never sleeps" its so true. The only improvement I could suggest would be an extractor fan in the bathroom. Thank you Hotel Elysee for a lovely stay:) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed the NYC experience in a wonderful hotel that made us fell welcome and at home. Love our hotel, friendly staff ....everything..... thank you to all the staff at Elysee!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Home away from home"
This European-style hotel ticked all the boxes for us. Its location was central and its decor gracious and charming. Our room lacked a view but was spacious, quiet and ultra-comfortable, with plenty of storage and a fine easy chair. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. The restaurant was excellent and we particularly appreciated […] the guests' lounge. The hotel was a pleasure to return to after a busy day and we would gladly stay there again.

"Brilliant, friendly hotel!"
A superb location just off Madison and 5th Avenue right near the shops! We found the staff to be very friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable. Rooms are kept clean, the bathrooms are classical marble and the beds are so comfy with high quality linen and lots of different pillows. Breakfast is help yourself continental, with a good choice with staff […] on hand to toast bagels etc. Coffee, tea, iced water and biscuits are available all day. In the evening there is wine, cheese and nibbles,... all of these are complimentary! We stayed in a room at the back which didn't have a view, but was really quiet at night. I would highly recommend this hotel, and will make it my first choice if I go back to New York. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"walking distance to all major department stores"
Stayed many times, best deal in Manhattan if you can get accomodations on a promotion.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very friendly and helpful staff!!! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff! The gentlemen on the desk answered questions, explained the subway routes and assisted us throughout our stay! The rooms were spotless and the beds made and clean towels everyday! The hotel was warm and clean and full of happy people! A lovely stay!Genuine Expedia guest review
I was very impressed with this hotel. All the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The complimentary breakfast and evening cheese and wine were very good, also it was great to get water and hot drinks at any time. Having access to a pc and printer was a nice touch, it meant we could do online check in and print boarding passes […] for our flight home. Our room was a good size although the bathroom was rather small. We were on the 7th floor facing the street which was a little noisy at night especially when passing trucks sounded their horn. Overall I would definitely return to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Traditional small hotel in a great location."
We arrived just in time for hurricane Sandy, but staff ensured that there was minimum disruption inside the hotel. We stayed in a Kiing Suite which was spacious and comfortable. I am noise sensitive and found I could cope with the inevitable buzz from the street. The breakfast buffet was good, as was the cheese and wine in the evening. Overall we would […] rate the Elysee very highly and have already recommended it to family and friends. A fantastic hotel with traditional values with discreet but friendly service.

"Noisy Hotel - significant walk to Times Sq"
We recently stayed at the Hotel Elysee for 5 nights. When booking we asked for a high level floor at the back of the Hotel so as to get away from the street noise that other reviewers had commented on. The Hotel is located in Midtown Manhattan between 3rd Ave and Madison Ave. It's close to Madison Ave shops, if you wish to shop there, expensive designer […] label shops. Upon check in we were given a side facing room at the front of the Hotel on the 6th floor. After one night of little sleep from all the street noise plus the noise from air con units on the roof of the next building which were just below us. It was a hot night, however noise from the room air con unit was that loud we had to switch it off. We tried to open the window and then the noise from next doors air con units was horrific. Next day we asked for a different room and we given a 10th floor room at the back of the building. Less street noise this time, however we could still hear all the sirens and in NY there are constant Police etc sirens. Same problem with in room air con unit and again although on a higher floor, we couldn't open the windows again due to the noise from the air con units on the roof of the next building. From a sleeping perspective, avoid this Hotel. The rate included a continential breakfast which was just OK and in room WiFi was free of charge. This is an old Hotel, don't be fooled by photos on web site which make it appear something else. Rooms are small and choose a room with a double bed and not a KIng bed as rooms are the same size, therefore even less room in a king bed room. Furniture in rooms is old. We had a flat screen TV which was good. We found staff pleasant and helpful which helped make our stay a bit better than it was. The hotel is not well located as it is approx 20 to 30 min walk to Times Sq. Times Sq is where all the action from a visitors point of view happens. Its also where the hop on hop off bus leaves from. The nearest tube station is approx 10 min Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
