Hotel Belleclaire

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed at a standard Queen room. You do not have enough room to walk around. the room is very small. Dusty underneath the bed. The floors are not wood it's vynil. floor tile are starting to curl up. The ice machine it's on the first floor. There's only one. The little restaurant inside the hotel does not have many choices. They don't have Central AC, only window unit which made a lot of noise. Only grood thing is The location is great. the ck in was fast and easy. The door man seems to take a lot of breaks because I hardly ever saw him there. The waiting area is very small. The waiting area and the rest it's all in the same place as the only (very small only fits 4 people if the luggage are small) elevator. So when the doors open you are faced with a big crowed of people.

We stay here often and would recommend this boutique hotel

Clean and friendly, but rooms were poorly appointed with cold wood floors. Elevators were tiny.

Adequate except last night when room was not cleaned by 4pm.

Our suite had a Mark Twain theme, and was nicely done! The hotel is clean and the staff is fantastic. Its close to everything and has some great bakeries nearby and we killed some time shopping at Marshalls across the street! Hotel was easy to get to, not far off the high way exit, easy to find. we were able to walk to The New York Historical Society.

We were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay at Hotel Belleclaire!

We had an amazing week here! Very large room, especially for NYC. Perfect location... right in between Central Park and Riverside Park, tons of great restaurants around, subway is only two blocks away, a few blocks from the Natural History Museum. The staff was lovely and very helpful. I literally have no complaints.

While our stay went without any problems from the hotel, this really isn't a place to spend a week in New York at. Maybe just a quick getaway at most.

Great hotel for our 6 day stay in NYC.Location is perfect for local attractions and two blocks from subway for getting to other parts of the city. Local bakery and market are just around the corner. Restaurants are easily accessible within a few blocks walking in any direction.

As this was my first time to NYC & I was on a budget [student here], I was very pleased to find Hotel Belleclaire. The location is great, a bit off Central Park, located near transit & food. My check in was smooth [booked on Orbitz], the staff was very friendly & helpful, & the room was nice, though small. The room had a good sized closet, was equipped with an umbrella for rainy days, iron, ironing board & safe. All the good stuff. The cable was a bit spotty, but nothing too shabby, & the water pressure in the shower was AMAZING. Plenty of extra towels & washcloths, & the amenities definitely came in handy. To heat the room, there's an old school radiator, which helped a ton, as the weather was pretty brisk when I travelled. The bed was nice & comfy, & if you get too cold, there's extra blankets in the closet. Only thing I would complain about is the noise level. My neighbors had some very happy kiddos who rose early, with enthusiasm. Lucky for me, my conference times were also pretty early, so I didn't mind [much]. As everywhere else in Manhattan seemed to charge your firstborn, Belleclaire gave a great experience that didn't break my bank. Totally recommend!!

You must request a quiet room, not facing traffic. Staff was very nice to allow me to check in early.

I would definitely recommend Hotel Belleclaire to my family and friends. My husband and I also plan to stay there again. We had a wonderful experience and the staff was very friendly.

I like this hotel. Rooms are big for New York, clean, quiet and the staff is very friendly. The neighborhood is a neighborhood with a market, bakery, etc... I think this was my 5th visit and it does not disappoint. The room was quiet warm this time but the weather was strangely warm too...so I found it understandable. Jennifer

We enjoyed our stay but the bed was a little uncomfortable and the room was extremely warm. We turned down heat and opened bathroom window and all was well.

Very eclectic Hotel with an inviting lobby area. It was clear people liked hanging out in the lobby. There was always activity of some kind or another. Not a stuffy place at all. They don't have a bar or a restaurant but in my opinion that makes sense because you are surrounded by many food choices just outside the door. Most people would prefer going down the block for a bagel I think. They do have a coffee bar with bakery options. Comfortable beds, clean sheets and bathroom. It is not a big room and the bathroom is small. But it made little difference as we adjusted accordingly. It is an older building with a lot of history which made its appeal even stronger. Location couldn't be better. Central Park and Museum of Natural History to name just two places you can easily walk to. I loved the staff. Lots of staff available to help with luggage, answer questions, arrange a car if necessary. We checked out at 12 noon (another thing I liked) but our flight out wasn't until 9pm. It was no problem for us to leave our luggage at Belleclaire all day. I love the Belleclaire!

Welcoming and friendly place to stay on the Upper West Side. Always enjoy my stay at the Belleclaire.

My daughter and I stayed here on our way home from the Women's March. The Belleclaire was everything we could have wanted. Great staff, they even allowed us to come in early. The room was clean and nice. We enjoyed everything about our stay. Great location too.

Our fire alarm in the room kept going off between 4am and 4:45am. I had to call the front desk and the poor guy didn't know what to say. He was so thoughtful and nice, but didn't know how to deal with the situation. He said we could "change the battery"??!! But I explained that with 11 foot ceilings and a hard-wired electrical alarm system that batteries wouldn't matter. I suggested moving rooms, which we did...at 5AM. No one ever contacted me to apologize or correct the bill. I've stayed in hotels all over the world...and I was surprised the management didn't make this right for me. I rarely complain.

Overall very nice hotel. Great upper west side location. Very accommodating staff. Room small but clean. Nice bathroom.

The rooms are clean & the staff are friendly & I would recommend staying there.

Thank you for your note. We do have a few select rooms with a central HVAC system. I am surprised to hear you found our lobby to be small since it does offer seating for over 40 people. Please contact me to further discuss your stay and I do apologize for any inconvenience.
