Great location!

We were visiting our daughter at Columbia University; this hotel was convenient to the subway, some nice restaurants and cafes. We really enjoyed the area and the staff was very pleasant and helpful!

Chambre spacieuse , personnel à l écoute et agréable. Un peu bruyant car notre chambre se trouvait juste devant l ascenseur.

Good location, average hotel

Posted May 21, 2015
Pros: Although the hotel had no restaurant, there were coffee shops, a bakery, a neighborhood grocery store and a CVS within one block.
Cons: Renovation would help.
Location: The Museum of Natural History is nearby as well as Central and Riverside parks.
The location is great, great residential neighborhood two blocks from the subway, but far enough from Times Square to get a real New York experience. Great restaurants nearby, less expensive than mid-town. Beware of the "standard" room, it's quite small, maybe okay for one person, but not two. We got moved for an up charge and it was worth it. Nothing special about the room, the air conditioning was noisy. The shower control head kept falling off. We reported it and were assured that it would be fixed, but it never was. That made it difficult to control the water temperature in the shower.

Beautiful hotel but too expensive!

Posted May 19, 2015
The Bellclaire is a beautiful old hotel but the staff was terse and not overly friendly. Our room was very expensive with no real extras except complimentary non-alcoholic drinks in the lobby. The room smelled like pure rubbing alcohol, which I guess was suppose to make us feel like it was sterile clean. The plus was that we did have spotless white bed linens and towels.

très bien situé

Posted May 17, 2015
Très bon séjour dans cet hôtel à la situation idéale. Proche de Central Park, très joli quartier, jolies maisons new yorkaises dans les rues avoisinantes. Metro à deux pas. Toutes sortes de restaurants aux alentours (surtout sur Amsterdam ave.). L'hôtel en lui même est très agréable, très calme, personnel présent et aimable. Nous avions la chance d'avoir une chambre en étage élevé loin du bruit de la rue et avec une belle vue sur l'Hudson river. Petit reproche : peu de rangement.
