Terrific location”

Location.Walking distance to metro station and shopping.

Stayed 4 days in 309 hotel,2 through hurricane Sandy (lost power in the last 2.The position of the hotel is its greatest feature if you enjoy the best food,who doesn"t. 1minute to Chelsea food market which has the cheapest and best lobsters in New York,and 10 mins walk to 23 street to the Italian eatery (Eaterly) as its called which also has the finest food anyone will enjoy. The hotel itself is quite old,but for ourselves it great, we chose the shared bathroom option,usually 2 on each level and only meters from each room.This was ok for us as they were always clean,but you can have your own for maybe $50 dollars more per night.Metro station is also only 1 minute walk,so hop on the transit system because its the cheapest and best way to see anything(Get the full size metro map at any station with a person selling rail tickets.

Perfect location”

Location, kitchenette

Stayed in new York for a week and is hotel was perfect. Kitchenette came in handy for saving money, especially when the grocery stores have a lot of ready to eat meals, fresh fruits and other bits. The location was also perfect, the subway was right out the front and buses were very easy to catch. Many restaurants with different types of food within walking distance.

If this is the only way you can afford to stay in NY, it's just fine.”

Be sure to look at traveler's photos (NOT what is shown on Agoda's site--that's not what it looks like on the outside!). We knew we were traveling on a thin shoestring budget, and planned to be out of the hotel for most of each day sightseeing, so were willing to forgo many amenities. It's a walkup, it's small, and there's a shared bathroom, so things to keep in mind. But if you're really only going to use the room as a place to crash after seeing the sights all day, and you leave again early in the morning to see more sights, it's fine. Downsides: lumpy bed. We had to ask (twice!) for coffee cups. A shared bathroom is perhaps not for everyone (it was always clean, though . . . but once I went in and someone hadn't flushed. Ick.). Upsides: great location in upper Village/Chelsea. For the price, you'll NEVER find something in the city that's an actual hotel and not someone's living room sofa on AirBnB. Easy walking distance to everything; subway is right there, too.

Not the Ritz, but excellent location”

Situated near the Subway, Meatpacking District with nice restaurants down the block and they stored our luggage and allowed us to have a shower at 8pm as our flights was only at 11 pm

The hotel is pleasant enough. Staff are friendly and the shared bathroom facilities were clean which is normally not the case (with shared bathrooms). The rooms are somewhat cramped with you barely being able to pass at the foot of the bed to get to the other side as it is so close to the wall and the paint job in the rooms need a bit of attention. That said the bed is very comfortable and bedding clean and the type you would expect in any good hotel. It is so conveniently situated. Its close to the metro and the Meatpacking District restaurants are literally just down the road. If you have a couple of days in NY and on a budget you cant go wrong.

Got what we paid for.”

location, affordability, historic feeling

Our first impression of the hotel 309 was reminiscent of a sketchy new york apartment with a grumpy landlord. The front entry was dark and littered with garbage outside of a locked door with a buzzer that either didn't work or was unattended. When we did reach the night clerk by phone, he was suspicious until we assured him that we did have a reservation, and IDs. The lobby was old and tattered and smelled like stale cigarettes. Our tiny room was surprisingly quite clean and charming; although we only had one washcloth to share. Luckily, we were in New York City, and had plenty to do the whole next day before coming back strictly for sleep. But our keys didn't work, so we were back with the buzzer and phone again. The new night clerk was more reluctant and rude than the previous one. When he finally let us in, he scolded us for demagnetizing our keys by having them in the same pockets as our phones. We got back to our room to find our bed freshly made, but our towels weren't replaced (not even the washcloth we shared the night before).

Good location, nearly to subway station only 2 minutes, they have refrigerator ,microwave and small pantry which you can cook

I spent 1 week at Hotel 309. Firstly I didn't like it because it was a little bit dirty and old. However, I saw they try to do some renovation during I stay there that why it was cheap , after that I get used to for the noise and dirty and found out that was OK. I can excess to the hotel at any time with my key card and the location is very very great because it 5 foot step away from the subway station and not far from free wifi zone and nice restaurant which I feel comfortable like I stay at my home. Moreover, there is small pantry in the room which microwave and refrigerator. So, you can cook

Great value for money, wonderful location ”

The hotel in very well located, within meatpacking district, right next to the ACE and L subway. The room is pretty basic, nothing fancy but it has everything you need and is quiet and clean. We booked a room with private bathroom and shower, they were clean and shower was good. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The only few comments I have is that the Wifi was not so good and door was quite difficult to lock (had to be slammed which may have disturbed our neighbors)

Budget hotel in Chelsea area”

This is a budget hotel with an excellent location on 14th street, 8 avenue in Chelsea. No elevators so you would need to carry your luggage up the stairs. The room itself was OK, quiet towards the backyard. Somehow clean but with some dust on the floor. A plus for the fridge in the room. When sharing a bathroom you would expect that the staff does everything to keep this clean during the day and evening. Hotel 309 failed here. As the day passed by the bathroom became more and more dirty.

This hotel was a last minute decision due to our original plans of travelling through Boston fell through (due to the Boston bombing). It ended up being very convenient in terms of location and close to the Chelsea market. It was clean and sufficient for several nights stay and the price was quite good given the last minute we booked it.

Not good for Agoda or Hotel 309”

The staff was friendly and helpful.

After receiving email confirmation from Agoda that my room was reserved, I arrived at Hotel 309 to find a full house. Although the staff was apologetic and helpful finding me a (more expensive) place to stay, "inconvenience" (the word they used) is much too kind a word to describe physical hardship and mental anxiety that comes with that kind of experience. The request at the heading of this feedback box suggesting that I contact Customer Support if I experienced any "serious issue" should really include a way to contact Customer Support. If Customer Support cares to contact me, my number is 814-881-4372. I trust you have my email address.

Good if low on budget.”

Choose if you have no issues with shared bath. Request to be on the lowest floor if you are with the elderly since they need to go up the stairs if assigned to upper floors. Breakfast is not bad- bread, toast, cereal and coffee/ juice. Walls a bit thin. I heard the other door play EDM the whole afternoon. Chelsea Market and delis near the area for food. Helpdesk very helpful with questions. Accessible loc- place is a few steps from the subway on 14th St.
