Hotel 17

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The air condition rattles late at night. The radiator was making noise. The reservation I made says that two rooms would share one bathroom. I also reserved a room with two beds and they gave us a one bed. The toilet clogs. One bathroom is shared by 4 or 5 rooms. The maid service was good except in the evening a grouchy employee appear to dislike his job. He was obviously lack common courtesy.

The Hotel is centrally located. It is close to 14th St Union Square subway station that takes you everywhere in New York. The staff was very helpful and even though the bathrooms are shared, we never had an issue with availability and/or cleanliness.

The hotel was amazing! The location was also very good...Subway, restaurants, and stores close by. Room is very small but has the necessities. Hotel staff was very good and even let me check in early the day I got there. I really liked this hotel.

Just fine, shared bathrooms, cozy, European sized rooms, nice decor, totally functional and well located.

great deal within Manhattan ...we loved it...highly recommended ...

Great. Bargain, helpful staff. Nice reading and Desk lights,bathroom clean and never busy. My first room didn't have a desk, switched with no problem. Sister hotel on 34 is nice too.

Nice boutique hotel. Charming old style hotel. I will stay there again

Clean, comfortable single bed room. About half the size of a standard hotel room, only place to sit was the bed. I had a sink, (I understand some rooms don't). There are 4 bathrooms on the floor with toilets and showers. They were very clean. Over 5 days never had to wait. The location was very good for my needs. Staff was friendly although had little interaction with them. Overall, if you just need a secure, clean, comfortable, inexpensive place to sleep in a very expensive city. This fits the bill well. My only complaint is that there is no vending machine on the premises, there is a 24 hour store about a block away but it would be nice to be able to get a Coke or a bottle of water without going out in the middle of the night in 35 degree rain.

Room is quite small but immaculately clean. Be sure to ask for one w/ a private sink @ no added cost. Hallway is very narrow but always quiet. Bathrooms are communal but always kept clean at all times.

Rooms are small but cozy. Very quiet even with the communal bathrooms off the hall. I had never stayed at a hotel with shared bathrooms but it was a small inconvenience.

Ok hotel the price considered and you only need a place to sleep in NY. However lack of hot water in one of the shared bathrooms. Good location close to Union Square.

Stayed for 3 nights; nice hotel with small room, clean shared bathrooms. No sink in the room, which was surprising; I have stayed at similar hotels with a room sink, which I find very convenient. No daily housekeeping of room, but not that critical for short stay.

Clean small rooms. Shared clean bathrooms. Close to many attractions.

I've stayed at Hotel 17 twice and it's fine, especially at the low rate I can get it through Orbitz. I don't mind the shared bathrooms, but be sure to ask for a room with a sink in it. That makes alot of difference when you don't have an en suite bathroom. I didn't have a problem accessing the bathroom - there are two for each half floor. My room was small (as are most NYC hotel rooms, not something I see as a problem), with a single bed. It's kind of bare bones, but a fine place to sleep for a night or two. Location is good, with easy access via the 14th Street crosstown bus to all the major subway lines along 14th Street. Wifi a bit unreliable, but that might have just been something that happened on the night I was there. I'm a long time NYC resident (almost 50 years in Manhattan), now living Upstate.

This hotel has old ny charm with modern, professional staff. Clean rooms and quiet for nyc. Rates are competitive and stay on track 7th floor was fine. This was my second stay.

Good ratio price/comfort/location. Close to the union Square - perfect underground reach to many lines. Quiet rooms and quiet area. Some people probably can not use a restroom correctly ;)

Nice location, near Union Station, charming, no trouble to share Bathroom

I stay here every time I am in nyc. Great staff, clean, good location, love it!

a budget stay by new york standards with shared bathrooms. decent availability of bathroom facilities. small basic rooms. allow luggage storage which is great.
