Guest reviews

  • Single

    Over-priced: Very small room for the price paid - definitely too small for a couple even though this was a Queen room.

  • Single

    Excellent location, modern and clean, lovely bathroom with big shower, free internet

    No safe deposit facilities. A hotel in ny at those prices without safe deposit facilities is unacceptable. I was lucky enough to know people there who could look after my stuff otherwise it would have been very difficult. As it is I had to walk around with my passport at all times which I didn't appreciate. Not the friendliest staff by any stretch of the imagination. Rooms tiny and some look onto a wall and have almost no daylight at all. I cannot imagine 2 people with 2 suitcases staying in my room, but I guess that's ny!

  • Single

    style and cleanliness of the room, nice people at reception

  • Couple

    Interior Design

    Rooftop terrace - no light, no music, no view.

  • Older travelers

    Location, value for money staff,excellent attitude clean all you need well renovated comfortable bed excellent shower

    Noisy guests a tad on the small side lots of drawers to forget your stuff in

  • Couple

    The location is awesome. Rooms are clean, and cleaned or attended several times a day. Bed and pillows are comfy so you could get a good sleep. Hotel is also very new and good quality.

    The room was really small. We stayed a week and it worked fine however you had to be very tidy and put everything away in the cupboards. We also had to put our suitcases on top of the cupboard. Still it was fine for the week with a bit of effort.

  • Single

    Great location

    Stayed in a room with central air conditioner and room is facing main road. The noise from the air vent is much louder than the street noise!

  • Couple

    The design of the hotel is very trendy and comfortable - The location is perfect to visit Manhattan.

    The room is not very large but I think it's the standard in New-York.

  • Single

    The hotel is very well located just one block from 23rd St subway station and the surrounding area is leafy and fairly calm (as opposed to the hustle and bustle of midtown Manhattan). The Chelsea High Line is only two blocks away and is well worth a visit. The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable and the staff were exceptionally friendly. The roof terrace is a lovely place to sit any time of the day or evening as there are tables, chairs and sun umbrellas for the use of guests. There is also a great view of the top half of the Empire State building from the roof terrace (I also had this view from my room!). Underneath the hotel on the corner of 8th Ave and 22nd St there is a fabulous organic restaurant and deli/shop which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  • Older travelers


    Accused of smoking in room..not true...complained and they said they would get back to me and didnt... With proof. Put a fine on my credit card. Bad form

  • Single

    Really tiny rooms. Sufficient to spend the night, but might be a disaster if you intend to spend your days in the room.

  • Group of friends

    The Gem hotel is in a great location. The facilities are minimal but good, and the staff are excellent.

    The rooms at The Gem are very small. The facilities are minimal.

  • Single

    the design, the comfort, the small size (compared to v. big hotels) and the location and the very helpful staff.

  • Older travelers


    terrible facilities and room too small; poor service; no attention to customer requests

  • Couple

    Location, staff, confy bed and pillows, good ammenities, clean deco + great grocery and restaurant dowstairs and fresh bagels acroos the street

    Room a bit too small, but still ok. Heating instead of the existing ac would be better (and quieter). But it´s still a very good choice in nyc
