Conveniently located. A few local restaurants to chose from, grocery, coffee shop. Subway stop nearby. Staff are friendly and very professional. Bathroom recently upgraded, bed and décor looked dated, tired and worn. Hotel did have some renovations going on on the first floor (not interrupting with operation, cleaniness of the hotel) so maybe more updates to come.

Our first time here. Very friendly staff, unusual for NYC. Location a bit away from usual tourist places, but still lots of restaurants nearby. Price quite reasonable for NYC. Will return.

Great hotel with all the basic needs. Clean rooms with modern bathroom and furniture. Next to the subway C-E, brings you in minutes everywhere in Manhattan. The only negative point I can make is the small rooms. We will come back!

The GEM hotel in Chelsea is very well located in a quite calm area of NY. The hotels staff was very nice and did all they could to make you satisfied. Nice to go out and by your breakfast and then bring it and eat it on the roof top of the hotel. We enjoy´d our stay at the GEM. The only thing we can complain on is that the rooms was small and had not any big space for our clothes and suitcases.
