Colonial House Inn, Chelsea NYC 318 West 22nd Street · New York, NY 10011 T: 212-243-9669 · 800-689-3779


Great all around. Great experience. Our room was very clean. The bathroom we shared with one other room was very clean and updated. We both found the bed very comfortable. The location was nothing but great…and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Each morning there is a variety of continental breakfast foods such as cereal, toast, bagels, hard-boiled eggs, muffins, orange juice, tea, coffee and some more that I’m forgetting. For the price that you pay it almost feels like a steal staying here. I will be definitely staying here again on my next trip to New York.

Great discovery – Colonial House Inn. This is a very pleasant place to stay. Good location. Pristine rooms with down duvets – an unexpected treat! Space perfectly adequate and plenty of room to hang clothing, etc. Front desk personnel very pleasant and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay.

I’d go back any day…great location, spotless room and bathroom, super friendly front desk staff. All in all, a great bargain! I used to spend a considerable amount of time in New York on expense account and spent most of my time in 5-star hotels in Midtown and were I to be forced into travel mode again, I would replace them all with the Colonial House. I really don’t think you can do any better.

Highly recommended. Just got back from a six night stay at the Colonial House Inn and wanted to big it up! The accommodation was spotless and cleaned daily. The staff were lovely. Chelsea proved to be a great location. There’s a subway station one block away and lots of great restaurants at the end of the street and I didn’t want to leave!!!

Perfect -– A very good quality/price ratio. This is a very good deal: very good location, among the lowest rates in Manhattan, very clean. The staff were rather polite. The cleanliness of the common bathroom was beyond perfect. I would definitely go there again.

A fantastic find in New York. Comfortable, friendly and clean. We had a great room with white linen and white walls and a great walk-in shower. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful providing limitless cups of coffee.

I am very happy with my stay at the Colonial House Inn. It is a friendly environment and I had an amazing time. The workers there are all very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Great location. Very pleased!

Stayed here for 12 nights in August. Triple deluxe room for my wife, my 15-year old son and me. Place was spotless. Rooms cleaned and fresh towels daily. Staff very friendly and Tony, the Manager, extremely helpful for advice on travel details, local stuff, etc. In a very central part of Manhattan. Empire State Building, Macy’s, a 10-15 minute walk. Subway, local stores and plenty of food outlets right around the corner. The gay aspect of the place is very low-key and several other families and other couples were staying there at the same time as us. Would definitely stay there again and recommend the place.

Our first trip to New York was made all the more special by Colonial House. My partner and I stayed four nights in a deluxe room and could not have asked for more. Great price, location and staff. Everything was very clean.
- Pete G., Tennessee

I agree with all the good reviews that have already been written about this distinctive guest house and I think it’s one of the best values in New York. The staff was discreet, gentle and efficient. Even if directed to a gay customer base, it is well open to welcome everybody so that everybody can feel at home. The atmosphere is friendly and informal.

I was in New York for a conference and rather than pay over $250 a night at the official hotel of the conference, I stayed at the Colonial House Inn for much less. It was great! It was clean, safe and in a nice neighborhood very close to the subway. I stayed in a smaller room with a shared bath and found it perfectly fine – it was nice and bright with new fixtures and furnishings. The bathroom also had new features and was always clean. The breakfast was just fine and in fact had more variety than the previous B&B I stayed in. There is no elevator however. Other than that, I can’t recommend the Colonial House Inn enough.

Great B&B. I had a deluxe room for four nights. Veeeeerrry clean room and bathroom, comfortable bed, friendly staff. The breakfast wasn’t amazing but everything else was almost perfect. I recommend it strongly.
- Mooky, Montreal, Canada

Such a nice surprise – a beautiful neighborhood, everything is within walking distance including the subway a block away. My boyfriend and I booked the deluxe room and the bed was heavenly, the room immaculate, and the private bath clean and fully functional. We had a little TV with satellite and a mini-fridge to keep some snacks and cold white wine. It was clean, cozy, funky, great atmosphere, friendly staff and a great breakfast in the morning. Will book this again for sure!!

I was going to New York to audition for a couple of schools and came across Colonial House. At first I was very wary because I had never booked a hotel by myself and didn’t want to get screwed over. After reading all the reviews I figured I would take a chance. I am so glad I did! The room was perfect (small but perfect for what I was there to do). I stayed four nights, the room was clean and neat!

Value for the money and more. We stayed at the Colonial House from December 28-January 3rd…we would have extended our stay until the 6th of January but they didn’t have any rooms available! We will definitely be booking this B&B when we return to New York. The location in Chelsea was perfect…the area was totally safe. We ended up staying at a different hotel in Midtown for the last 3 nights but we preferred the quieter, more residential feel of the Colonial House. The room was spotless clean and whilst it was a smallish room, they designed the room well…we had enough closet space for our clothes/toiletries and we had room to put two big and one small suitcases away so that we weren’t tripping over them…there was enough floor space for two people to move around without bumping into each other. They also provided a safe and a small fridge. This room had one of the most spotless clean bathrooms I have seen in a while. The bed was great and with a duvet. The breakfast in the morning was great…no bacon, eggs, etc. but delicious muffins, bagels, juice. Staff was great…some more chatty than others but all were courteous and helpful.

Have to agree with the majority of the reviewers as far as great value accommodations in an interesting neighborhood. Would take a lot to beat this place.

My daughter and I stayed recently here. We absolutely loved it! My son has been living in New York for 10 years and when not staying with him, I try to search for a new interesting place to stay. I have not as yet stayed at the same place twice…but that is going to change. We will definitely stay at the Colonial House Inn again. Great neighborhood, extremely friendly and helpful staff. The place has such a warm and homey feel and the beds are heavenly! They will be seeing me again.

The Colonial House Inn is a great find! Great neighborhood, the rooms were very nice and super clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I look forward to staying at the Colonial House Inn on my next New York trip and will recommend it to friends and family. The best thing about it was the price.
- Achaz, Birmingham, Alabama

This place is a real gem. This is a budget B&B but with a difference…it’s clean, it’s friendly, the rooms are great, the breakfast is more than adequate, staff are really helpful, art is fab! Profits from this hotel are shared with AIDS charities…the area is great, a suburban tree-lined street. Check out their website. It really is just like the pictures!
