We stayed for 6 days and as it turned out, there was only one time when the bathroom on our floor was...

Really enjoyed staying here - lovely B&B atmosphere in an amazing location. The staff were so friendly and attentive too. The room I stayed in was clean and simple - the shared bathroom felt like it had been modernized recently. Would definitely stay here again!

We really enjoyed our stay at Colonial House. The staff was wonderful. A special thanks goes to Jose who went out of his way to look up info to make our stay more special. The location was great as it was a block and a half to the subway. The inn is on a quiet street which is refreshing after...

Nice hotel in Chelsea area, friendly staff, nice and clean rooms at reasonable rate. In middle of Chelsea district so no shortage of places to go for food and drinks and nightlife. It also has a great roof terrace for a bit of sunbathing weather permitting!

I have stayed at Colonial House for a number of years and it is my preferred place. If you want quiet, clean, and convenient, CH is it. The rooms are small, but I don't go to NY to stay in a hotel room. The shared bathrooms are kept very clean by staff and other guests. The WiFi was working only...

The Colonial House is old and quirky. The rooms aren't large but ours was more than adequate, very clean and a good bathroom. You will be in an atmospheric part of New York with history all around. You can reach the High Line Walk through the Chelsea Market which is a 10 minute walk away. They provide a self service...

The Colonial House Inn is very well located and extremely clean with good quality towels etc. The rooms are small but so is the price and you just don't spend much time in your room in New York because there is too much to do in the city. Tony goes out of his way to be of assistance to guests....

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
