It was my first time in NYC and I stayed here for 3 nights. When we arrived there, there was a misunderstanding about our room. But the guy in reception tried to help us and he found an empty room like we wanted. First of all, Carlton Arms has perfect location. It's so close to tourist attractions, good restaurants and...

If your one for just calling your hotel "base" then this is perfect. It oozed personality and the location was perfect, central for almost anything. If I was to come back to New York (I'm sure I will) I'd most certainly stay here again. To be honest we didn't spend much time here as we were out all day, came...

Carlton Arms is at a fabulous location, easily accessible from at least three metro lines. It is just a 7 minutes walk away from the Madison Square park. I returned past 11.00 pm one night, safe and even managed to get some food from a restaurant on the way. The multi national staff is helpful. Many things about this place...

GOOD: local, neighbourhood, Price, Beds, Eccentricity BAD: -They don't clean the room no matters how many days you stay. I lived in a dirty room and bathroom for 9 days. And I pay more for a room with bathroom. Awful! -The stairs even for the first floor. -The staff dont give much attention.

One our favorite places to stay in NYC. The artwork is great - each room themed by a different artist. We opt for a room with bathroom as opposed to some that have shared bathroom down the hall. (I did mention it's not for everyone). This hotel is a fun room at a good rage in NYC. The staff are...

This is my go-to spot when visitors ask for recommendations. Each room is decorated/designed/executed by a different, talented artist and each floor's hallway has a different theme. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It's also a great place for couples. TWO TIPS: 1) Be sure to request a private bathroom if you want one 2) There's no elevator, so...

I stayed here about 7 years ago on a research trip to New York and from these reviews it looks as though it hasn't changed - except for the art on the walls. Personally I loved it. I was almost 60 at the time and it brought back memories of a bohemian past which I thought had disappeared into the...

I was hoping this booking would work out after reading so many bad reviews - it was in such a good location, and it was in our price range, and we could get a room that had three beds in it - which we needed, and seemed to be pretty rare. And in truth, it was fine. The location is...

I think many of the reviews already cover the key points about this hotel, so I will try not to be too redundant. However, some things are worth repeating. It's unique. It's inexpensive. It's for a certain kind of person and you will know by the reviews if you will feel comfortable here. If you need matching sheets, an elevator,...

Listen, I know there's a large chunk of travellers that want the beige linens and the generic wallpaper and the plastic cups with plastic wrap over them and the crappy standard framed art on the walls- if you are this person, you are not going to enjoy the carlton arms. if you are a lou reed-loving, basquiat-worshipping, street-art fanatic who...
