Opener: poor service, poor cleanliness, poor quality, incompentence I can (just about!) put up with. This place seems to be set up almost specifically as a scam, or certainly operates very dodgy practices We booked this in April 08 for a September visit. We decided the small number of poor reviews (on another site as that time there appeared to... More

My friend recommended that I stay at the Antique Cafe Bed and Breakfast in New York City. After reading some reviews on Trip Advisor, however, I was reluctant. I am glad I listened to my friend, because my experience was fantastic. A very nice gentleman called me a few days before we arrived to re-confirm and to ask if I... More

Our experience is similar to some of the reviews here. Thankfully our money was refunded, but now, a week from leaving for a NYC vacation, we need a place to stay. The full amount of our stay was charged, as opposed to the 10% deposit as stated on the website. We were also told a clerical error. After getting the... More

First off, I have to stress for anyone looking at these reviews, that it is essential that under any circumstances you do not book at the Antique Cafe Bed and Breakfast. It began when my partner booked our trip to NY and also booked the apartment in advance by 2 months through the Antique Cafe B&B. The owner took the... More

I rented a one BR on W 11th Street for a two night stay. My son and I were visiting NYU. Due to flights being cancelled, we arrived early in the AM, and not in the late afternoon as we had planned. The owner's assistant was great and met us to give us the keys at 5:30 AM. The apartment... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
