Hotel 17

Category: 2 stars

1. Location

Hotel 17 New York delivers typical New York charm and is in a great location. Only 3 blocks from Union Square — you will find yourself in the middle of all the action – and, considering New York prices, at a very reasonable cost. Union Square, near 14th Street, is a good departure point for going out at night. East Village is nearby, and great bars and pubs are also in close proximity. Vibrant, pulsating city life is all around. The location is also ideal for those interested in culture: the Daryl Roth Theater (by the way, the building was formerly a bank!) has regularly scheduled events.

2. Rooms and hotel staff

We stayed at the hotel in 2010 and can highly recommend it – when I was celebrating the end of my bachelor days, we stayed there as a foursome. The rooms are not particularly large, but very clean. The mattresses were comfortable, and the bath and toilet facilities, located in the hallway, were also always clean. A double room runs approximately 110 EUR. I remember the hotel staff as being very friendly and accommodating.

Our insider tips:

  1. Going-out tip: Heartland Brewery is located at Union Square: a micro-brewery with great beers!
  2. Breakfast tip: Only 200 meters from Hotel 17 is a great diner (17th Street corner 3rd Avenue).
  3. One more hotel tip: Hotel 17 has a sister property further north with the equally creative name: “Hotel 31” (located on 31st Street).
