Of the 5 budget or medium priced hotels I have stayed in in NYC,the Belleclaire has been the best so far.
Although this week there is scaffolding on some of the building,and the entrance/lobby is far from glamorous,once you get up to the room the apparent refurbishment becomes clear.
My room had a partial view of Broadway( the corner),solid wood floor,lovely minimalist decor,modern looking bed linen and cushions,and all the expected mod cons,including a mini fridge.
The wide screen TV opposite the bed was great,though the remote control needed to be held with an outstretched arm from the bed to work.Hardly a big problem.
The bathroom was compact,but not too small,with deep green traditional tiling,and was very clean,with excellent shower pressure and water temperature.
I arrived at 11.30 a.m.,but although check in isn't officially til 3,my room was ready.This was a bit of luck!I found the front desk staff friendly and efficient,including when I asked to store my luggage til later in the day on checking out.
I would definitely stay there again.I like the Miburn Hotel too,a block away,but for solo travellers or couples,I would recommend the Belleclaire as having a bit more style.More
