Ye Olde Carlton Arms Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 16, 2008

We stayed at a really cool, funky place called The Carlton Arms Hotel in Gramercy Park (just east of the Flatiron District). Each room is hand-painted by a different artist (or set of artists; please see photo of one of the artist renderings in our hotel room).

For such arty digs you pay just $140/night for a triple and the West Village is just a few short blocks south!

I stayed there for 5 nights in September with three friends of mine ( and Gregorio a funny dead cockroach...)
You should go there if you want a budget accomodation with a clean bathroom and an eccentric room.

Unique Quality: I think it's a great alternative to manhattan hostels becuse it offers a funny experience: you can choose the room and every floor is different.

A funky place to lay your head in NYC

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 1, 2005

Recommended for a younger, artsy, unpretentious crowd for sure- feels a lot like a hostel.

Rooms are clean. Each is painted invidually with a unique theme in mind. Some have private baths, most just have a sink in the room and a shared bath/toilet in the hall.

Ours had a private bath, it was a clawfoot tub/shower set up. Can't for the life of me remember if it had a toilet! Gosh we were drunk!

No phones or TVs in rooms- you DON'T NEED A TV IN MANHATTAN ANYWAY, you're in Manhattan! But they do have phones you can use in their lobby.

Unique Quality: This place is like a funky artsy acid trip... totally painted up by various artists. You're destined to meet cool people here from all walks of life. It's an experience to say the least. There was a nice little Irish pub/bar right next to it I believe....

Not for everyone!

I would have stolen their own motto, but wanted to credit it... "It ain't no Holiday Inn!"

Its not scrupulously clean, not all the rooms have their own bathroom. And those that do don't necessarily have a door. The decor is...unique!

But its lovely and warm in the winter, and I heard they got A/C now too; you can chat with guests from all the world in the cosy reception area, or just pet the cats. And you cannot beat the price - a room that can sleep 3 or 4 people for $110!!

Downstairs is a pizza place, across the street you have a Chinese, an English pub and a supermarket. 5 minutes away from the delectable Lyric Diner, a multiplex cinema on the next street, and you're halfway between Central Park and Battery Park.

What more do you want?!

I've stayed here 3 out of 3 trips to the city.

Unique Quality: bucket loads of attitude!
