    This place has very small single rooms. They are reasonably clean but realy noisy. I had to get pair of earplugs to make it through the night. Price is adequate I think and the location is actually really good.

    Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
    brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
    popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
    jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
    contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
    neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
    every night of the week and countless exhibits to
    explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
