      Wonderful cozy hotel right in the centre of New Y”

      location and the fact that it was quiet

      Our stay in GEM hotel was very pleasant. Chelsea is a very quiet and nice neighbourhood of NY. You can find several nice restaurants in the area and very near the hotel. One very interesting place to visit is Chelsea Market, which is no longer a market, but more of a shopping centre, where you can find different kinds of shops, and restaurants, especially the seafood restaurant where you can choose the lobster they are going to cook for you and many other seafood delicacies.The other spot is the Mexican Tacos, which sell the tastiest, and deliciously spicy tacos we have ever eaten.

      Great location, cute little hotel”

      We stayed here for 5 nights in May so we chose an expensive time to visit New York. That said, if you can get a good nightly rate in this place it would be a steal as its such a lovely place to stay. The area is great if you want to experience Chelsea and the trendy West Village. The subway is really close by and lots of shops, bars, restaurants on your doorstep (inc. a Starbucks just a 2 minute walk) Staff were all super friendly and helpful, always welcoming you and wishing you a good day. The hotel is super clean and modern with a nice roof terrace for an afternoon chill with a drink. The rooms are small, but bigger than expected for NYC. Everything you could need and cleaned perfectly every day. Would stay here again.

      Perfect Location”

      It was located in Chelsea, one of the hip neighborhoods with nearby cafes, restaurants and cute boutique stores. You can easily walk to some attractions like the high line, the Chelsea market, the west village, flatiron district, Madison square park, Washington square park and maybe even Soho. It’s right beside Foragers where you can have a good healthy meal and maybe even buy a healthy snack to take home. The staff were helpful and very approachable. The breakfast were mostly bread and pastries (the almond croissant was really good though) but at least they have coffee and lots of apples. If you’re keen on having an acai bowl, there’s one just across the hotel. There’s a subway a few minutes walk from the hotel. The rooms were small and basic but was comfortable enough for me and my husband plus a toddler.

      Staff were very helpful, good location

      i was staying on business & it was my first trip to ny, let alone the united states. the hotel is located in chelsea which is a nice area with lots of cafes and restaurants. the staff were very friendly and helpful... they were always eager to help. the room i was in was quite small (i hear this is quite typical of ny hotels) but it did the job as i was staying on my own. as far as amenities there is a small iron & ironing board, tea/coffee, flat screen tv, safe, etc. but no fridge. also, the heater in the room was quite noisy when ever it turned on. there is also a gym in the bottom floor which i made use of - it was small but again, did the job. apparently there is a roof top area which i never visited since it was a very cold week while i was there. all in all, the gem is a nice hotel that ticks the basics if you are looking for a comfortable room in a decent location. just don't expect any luxuries.

      Will never stay anywhere else”

      I was in NY for business and chose The Gem Hotel as it was 2 blocks away from my office. The location was amazing with everything at your finger tips. The room is small yes but it is enough for what you need, the gym downstairs is great and also the rooftop has some amazing views. All of this and right next door was one of my favourite food mart with organic vegatables and salad and soup bars. Delicious. Thank you again and look forward to staying with The Gem on my next business travel

      Great Location; Friendliness of staff; Service

      This was our first trip to New York. While the rooms were small, they met our needs. The staff at the hotel were friendly and accommodating. I have stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels that did not meet the same standard as The Gem Hotel. The hotel was located so that you could easily access the subway and travel anywhere you wanted to go. The roof top area was a nice place to relax and had a great view of the Empire State Building. They are doing some remodeling in the lobby area - can't wait to return to see the improvements! We will definitely choose The Gem Hotel again.

      location, cleanliness, service

      The GEM is perfectly located on the west side of Chelsea, the High Line, an easy walk to Penn Station or the West Village, and very close to the C and E trains. The rooms are compact but comfortable for sleeping. We enjoyed the grocery and cafe downstairs, and a little time on the rooftop as well. Although there are renovations underway, it did not impact our stay and the staff was apologetic.

      Love this boutique hotel that is beside one of the nicest and trendiest area in Chelsea meat packaging district. You would love the clean room and friendly staff as you walk outside the hotel and down the clean leaf strewn streets (was there during autumn).

      My second stay at the Gem was great. The rooms are tight, but all is adequate for a stay in New York. My only concern is that the bathroom doesn't have ventilation, so the room stays a bit moist and dank. Otherwise, I can't imagine a better place for a downtown stay.

      Location, not loud, and intimate

      Hotel was perfect for my work trip. Typical New York hotel; small and few amenities. There is a restaurant right next door, but didnt eat there. The hotel is in a great location and everything you need is right around it. Not a far walk to Chelsea Market. Cute stores along the way if you walk down 9th street. Staff was friendly. Rooms are not large but perfect for short term stays and great if you are single and want to save a buck.
