    What a find!

    Couldn’t have found a better NYC hotel. Great location. Walking distance to pretty much everywhere in Manhattan if you have the legs. Central Park, MOMA, Grand Central, Top of the Rock, Empire State etc all within a stones throw. Close to the subway if you need it. Service from every team member consistently excellent. Room large and well appointed (we even had a roof terrace). Breakfast and the cheese and wine in the evening meant we could eat out at lunch and save the cost of other meals (the city is very expensive) and both worked well for us. Other reviewers have mentioned the WiFi, which was fine for us, the lift, which was working and very efficient and the overall decor. This is not a formulaic chain hotel. If that’s what you want best to look elsewhere. It has an individuality, which can sometimes means it looks a little dated, that gives it a charm that we really enjoyed. NYC is a great city, and our 6 day stay was complimented by this great little hotel.

    An amazing stay in Hotel Elysee - everything was just perfect. Travelling with my two daughters for their first trip to New York - the hotel and staff were simply superb. Will definitely return.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Very pleasant stay

    Received a warm welcome on check in. Room 77 is a large double situated at the front of the hotel and has an original marble bathroom with lots of character. The bed was firm but comfortable. The lighting is by lamps and is slightly difficult if you arrive when it is dark as you have to enter the room and walk across the full width of the room to switch on. We ended up leaving a light on when we went out, however, this is not very ecological friendly. The early evening wine and snacks were very welcome and gave an opportunity to talk to other travelers. Breakfast was simple but fine and tea and coffee was available throughout the day. The hotel is in a good location, a five minute walk from the subway and near the MOMA museum. There was a fair amount of noise from service vehicles and some building works from outside the hotel, quieter rooms are available to the rear of the hotel.

    Very comfortable quiet hotel in a super location

    stayed for two weeks and used as our base to explore all of new York and the outer boroughs. The hotel is charmingly decorated and quaint. Nice quiet location within walking distance of central park, grand central station, times square and 5th avenue. Staff are very helpful and efficient, the breakfast is great and just what's needed for starting the day. Room was large, perfectly clean and loved the turn down service in the evening. facilities are great - office pc etc and the evening wine/and cheese was a great addition. Would definitely recommend and stay here again over any other location in NYC

    Fabulous hotel!

    We spent 4 nights at the Elysee hotel in late August. It’s a small, very personal hotel located within walking distance of Central Park and the Metroploitan Museum of Art. Breakfast was good although limited in choice as there was no cooked food. However, every evening there are complimentary drinks and nibbles laid out in the lounge which we really enjoyed. Overall, this is a great hotel and I would definitely return.
