"Nice Location But Suspect Accomodations"
A/C too loud; power went out in our room one evening; room not cleaned 1 day; had to request clean towels and bring soiled towels to hallway; staff at coffee counter pre-occupied and chatting with the help had to ask for service; location was great but accommodations were not adequateGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great price for # of guests"
Extremely courteous and welcoming staff. Appreciated the call to our room to see if we were comfortable once checked in! The room comfortably housed 6 adult guests. Would highly recommend for its value and location! Thanks again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was in NY for a birthday getaway. I truely had a great stay at this hotel. The staff was friendly, happy and helpful. I love the location and two blocks from the hotel was the subway. I will book my next stay at Hotel Belleclaire.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It fell a little short"
First I would like to say the hotel for the most part is a nicely restored old building and the rooms are a step apart from the typical hotel box. That being said the cleaning staff seems to have a very hard time keeping up. I stayed two nights, the first night my room was not ready so I was put in another temporary room, small and not very comfortable […] the second day my room still was not ready at 3pm, at 4pm, 4:30pm the staff did not have it ready until 4:45 and I think that is because I sat in the lobby starring the front desk down to make it a priority.

"Great place to stay"
Hotel Belleclaire was a great place to stay. My friend and I did not have any problems with our room. The staff was very friendly and helpful with any questions we asked. This hotel is very close to a subway for an easy commute around the city. As well, it was in a great location to get some rest... area is quiet at night. I would definitely recommend […] Hotel Belleclaire to anyone looking for a place to stay in the city, and would choose it again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very good overall"
excellent overall service and conditions of the "hardware"....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel close to everywhere"
Rooms are clean, staff are very helpful and friendly! 3 minutes walk to subway station! The only shortcoming is that window is not well installed, noises from the street arrives from morning to late evening!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, but old..."
The hotel was at a good location, but lacks in every other aspectGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Change in Location for Us"
The hotel was a nice change to the regular location of hotels we stay in south of Columbus Circle. We were only there for one night but found the hotel staff to be very friendly, courteous and helpful. We frequent NYC many times throughout the year, so don't need recommendations, as we have favorite restaurants, etc., and didn't have a need to try out […] the WiFi. The hotel was clean, rooms were small but comfortable, not great views, but we were only there to sleep. Our TV didn't work and the Front Desk had someone in our room within 10 minutes and it was fixed. The location was great and we would consider staying there again.

So at first they wanted to put me on the first floor and I started to take it until my guest said "heck no", then we were given the 7th floor. We got into our room super small maybe because we were given a corner room & then we hear a bunch of noise and rackets and realized they were doing construction on that floor. Call the front desk and then we […] were moved to the 5th floor, the room was much better more space and no construction, so pretty much we we got the run-around, besides that the hotel is in great area, you walk to Central Park and the lincoln center Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"a very convinient hotel to stay"
my experience with Belleclaire was generally good. It's clean and tidy. And most important of all, the location is great, so close to subway stations and bus stops which makes it easy for us to go to some well-known tour destinations. And lots of restaurants, cafes and convinience stores nearby...the bad thing is, like the reviews I had read before […] I left, the air conditioner is old and bad, so noisy, it's like a lawn mower when it's working, we had to turn it off during the night (we are lucky coz it's ok not using air conditioner at this season). rooms are quite small...Anyway, considering it's location, services and affordable price, I still think it's place worth stay.

"Good location in the Upper West Side"
The staff was very helpful and accommodating especially considering we slept in fairly late a couple of days after a full day of NYC activities and late nights. The location was very good for us. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family visiting NYC.Genuine Expedia guest review
"My favorite NYC hotel"
I stay at Hotel Belleclaire every time I visit the city for a personal vacation. The location is great - within walking distance of Central Park, museums, restaurants and several Subway stops. The hotel has been recently remodeled and the rooms have modern decor. Overall it's a great place to stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cozy Hotel with the Local Feel!"
My girlfriend and I came here for a couple nights stay and the moment we arrived we were truly satisfied. The lobby and hang out areas are not that big but that's the hotel in general, plus its in a neighborhood area and you're in a city so I wouldn't expect Vegas sized hotels to begin with. The lobby and hang out areas have a library decor feel which […] we liked. The elevators are tiny though. Expect to fit two people with one luggage each. It wasn't a drawback for us but just telling you what it is. We booked a room with a queen sized bed. The room was small but definitely doable. We're in our 20s so it's similar to how small some dorms in college can be. The bathroom is small so it's hard to have more than one person in there at one time. The place comes with a tissue box, a mini fridge, a safe in the closet, a desk and seat, blow dryer, and tv. We visited New York at the end of August so it was humid and hot. The room could get pretty hot even at night so we had the fan on almost the whole time. It's kind of loud like any fan would be but that didn't bother us. The place was quiet. Being part of the neighborhood in the Upper West side meant that it was quiet - no cars, no metro, not many ppl out and about late at night. We didn't have a view in our room but I figured not everyone could since you're living in a city and New York is pretty crowded with residences. My only minor drawback is how there isn't much room in the bathroom to put our items on. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great staff but poor comfort"
All 15 people of staff who helped and served us during our 5 days/4 nights were really nice and kind and great cleanness of the room. Thank you. But unfortunately both the first room and then the second room we moved to later were not for a good sleep that all tourists absolutely need and a hotel supposed to provide them with. My friend and I could […] not sleep much for four nights through, because of noise of water drops from old air conditioners in our room and maybe upstairs rooms as well for the first night. Old windows and old air conditioners that were installed on the half-way opened windows in addition to the construction work undergoing in the streets that starts very early in the morning bothered our sleep.

"Great Upper West Side location"
Chose the hotel as a result of its location in the upper west side and overall ratings while visiting my son at Columbia University. Much to my (pleasant) surprise, we were upgraded into a suite, so had ample room (three full sized beds in two rooms), especially for a NYC hotel. Staff was helpful and friendly, amenities were great, ambiance, etc., and […] we got the room at a great price as well. Iced tea and lemonade in the hotel lobby was a nice touch. Bathroom was small but adequate, and included slippers and hotel bathrobes. I will definitely use this hotel again on future visits. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Combine Comfort and Location"
It was a fun and comfortable place to be at; same place as Babe Ruth stayed a few years ago. Friendly staff and great computer and gym room. We also enjoyed the safe location of the hotel near Broadway. Because of its location we were able to use taxi cabs to take us places for about $8.00 each trip to all the famous spots around the city.Genuine Expedia guest review

"A visit with family, kids for touristy reason."
Excellent service, very responsive staff, hotel very clean and nice, helpful front desk, concierge, doorman, very polite staff and helpful. Tried very hard to please and make our stay nice and comfortable. There was a misunderstanding (my fault) and they tried to help and fix it and even gave me a big discount for the upgraded room. All rooms have a […] little refrigerator and it makes thinks a little easier food wise. All rooms have a safe. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fun Times in Upper West Side"
Very cute hotel. Had a mini vacation with my teenage daughter. Hotel concierge helped put my plans in place gave great directions on subway and info on New York sights. We bought most our tickets from concierge and didn't have to stand in long lines. I would stay here again. Staff and some of other hotel guests can be a little stuffy. I don't know if […] it was a little bit of racism or if it was an upper westside thing. All in all housekeepers and concierge staff were amazing. Front desk staff have to work on the customer service skills. Hotel rates were great compared to other hotels in area. I will be using this hotel again in near future.

"A charming hotel refuge in a great NYC location"
This hotel was just perfect for my stay. I need two double beds. The room was roomy, had all the amenities one could need. The lobby is a great hang out place with cozy chairs,couches, newspapers, and French bistro tabled and one can have their morning coffee. There is no restaurant but a coffee bar for breakfast with croissants, bagels, etc. They place […] a complimentary carafe of ice tea and iced lemon mint water in the seating area of the lobby as well. It's location is a few blocks from central park, the natural history museum, and subway and bus stations for easy convenience to anywhere in NYC. Tons of charming moderately priced restaurants and cafe's close by. It is also a residential as well as commercial area with tree lined streets, and just a great haven to start and end your busy day in NYC. The staff is very accommodating. It reminds of a one the charming French hotels in Paris. I would definitely return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, nice rooms"
The hotel is two blocks from the Metro, so the location is very convenient and the neighborhood is full of good restaurants and only a short walk from Central Park and the Natural History Museum. The staff were friendly and responsive, even opening up the media lounge for me after hours so I could print plane tickets. The rooms are comfortable and large […] (we got a complimentary upgrade!) and ours had a nice view of the street. There is a bit of construction going on in the lobby and on the exterior, but it was never bothersome. Overall, a very nice experience! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great value, great location"
the front desk staff and the quality of the bedding make up for the fact that the rooms and bathroom are small. The bathroom is also a little outdated - it could use a bit of modernization with the tub/shower/tiles.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"NYC long weekend"
We greatly enjoyed the Hotel Belleclaire for a 4 day stay in July. Though the room was small, it was clean and well-equipped. We LOVED the luxurious shower head, thick towels and decor. The iced tea and lemon water each afternoon in the lobby was a pure delight. We had only one glitch- internet service throughout our stay was poor at best and non existent […] for hours at a time. This became a major headache as we planned out day. Staff knew and did what they could but the lack of internet was bothersome. Otherwise all was great! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice renovation, but still under construction"
The first room I was given was in a hole, couldn't see until I put the lights on. The second room was right next to a construction zone. I finally paid a $25 upgrade to get the same sizde room with light. They do not tell you this on their reservation page that the difference in price is light. Other than that, my stay was comfortable and convenient. […] The lobby bar is a great amenity. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice Hotel, Very Comfortable"
This hotel is a good choice if you like the Upper West Side. Nice sized room, comfortable bed, nice lobby, pleasant staff, close to restaurants, shopping, and the subway which takes you all around NYC. You are in the middle of a neighborhood, with schools, playgrounds, grocery stores, etc. I stayed here with my teenage daughter and we both enjoyed our […] stay.

"Had few prolems this time around"
I have stayed at this hotel previously without incident. I really like this hotel and the location but unfortunately this stay was not as good as my previous stay. My stay was for 2 nights (July 11-13). My first room had a problem with the shower floor leaking under the tile and water coming up from under the laminate flooring. The hotel responded immediately […] and moved me to another room. The replacement room was very clean and comfortable but when I went to take a shower, the handle came off in my hand. Again, I really like this hotel and just had a bad experience this time around. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I really liked this hotel for the price. It was clean and bright. My room was large and had a king sized bed with nice quality sheets. The bathroom was refurbished and bath products were good quality. The staff was the friendliest I have encountered in New York in a very long time and went out of their way to be helpful. WiFi was free and there was […] also no additional charge for the business center (3 computers with extra large screens and a free printer.) The location on the Upper West Side was extraordinary with great restaurants, shopping, theaters and subway all easily accessible. I would definitely stay there again.
