Just rocked up to the hotel after confirming my booking TWICE through their only booking system - email. I had to also contact them through Facebook because they "didn't receive the email the first time". My mum and I went in, extremely rude staff with an unwelcoming and uneasy vibe about the place. We were ignored, only to found out...

If you're looking for a 5 star hotel, concierge, elevator or little bottles of shampoo in the room, this is not it. If you're looking for an excellent location near subways, a warm comfy room with unique hand painted murals on every wall, free WiFi and coffee, towels, hot shower and some cats to cuddle....this is your place. Helpful staff....

The Carlton Arms is bohemian to the nth degree! Very cool and funky. When I first say my room I was a bit taken aback, but now I am noticing all the original artwork in it. The bed is comfy too, and it all seems quite clean. There are coffee and cookies by the reception area in the morning. The...

I have stayed there at least 10 times in the past and have always had courteous and friendly service. However, the night of November 20 the place was manned by a cretin who left me pounding on the door and ringing the bell for 20 minutes outside, even though I had a reservation. The Chinese restaurant next door rang the...

We stayed 8 nights in the Carlton Arms. And yes, it is true: it might not be a hotel for everyone. We really liked it. Not posh. Simple and not luxury. A place to sleep in The City that never Sleeps. What else do you need? The benefits are: - Not very expensive for Manhattan - Close to subwaystations -...

For my 40th Birthday my husband organised a surprise trip from Paris to NYC for what should have been a wonderful weekend. But it took a second to spoil it all when we entered the place. I am found of Arts and I understand that the concept of the hotel is unique. I found it quite unique in many ways....

We had a double bedroom with a private bathroom. Carlton Arms was a good experience, it was clean, it was cheap, and with a good location. The staff was very helpful and friendly. It is a special place, and not suited for everyone, but we had a great time and a good experience. The cats are also cute. Across the...

I highly recommend Carlton Arms to those who aren't too fussy about the aesthetic nature of your accommodation and want affordable accommodation in New York. Although the rooms are basic, my room (private) had a VERY comfortable bed, a basin and efficient air con. Staff are very welcoming and friendly. I was given the choice of two rooms and picked...
