Where to stay in New Yok City – classic hotel Elysee

Staying in New York City is not really possible on a budget. Accommodation in Big Apple is much more expensive than you would expect – it was one of the surprising facts I found out about New York City during my 2-week stay there. But at least now I can definitely help you when choosing the best deal for a good price. Depending on what you might be looking for, one of my picks is Hotel Elysée.

Elysée Hotel
 built in 1920′s is one of those calm, luxurious and elegant hotels in busy Manhattan that makes you go back in time to the ”Old New York”. I had a great time there and this is why:
  • perfect location – in Midtown, 60 East 54th Street (between Park and Madison Avenues), close to anything in Manhattan but still away from all the hustle and bustle of it
  • home of the famous Monkey Bar – one of the finest French restaurants in NYC
  • place of many artists, movie stars and writers over the years – you never know who famous you could meet here so keep your eyes open :)
  • it was named Best Small New York Hotel  by Travel and Leisure Magazine
  • it was twice voted the most romantic hotel in NYC by Citysearch
  • very helpful and smiling staff (thank you, guys!)
  • free wifi around the hotel, and both wifi and cable internet in the rooms which come handy
  • free continental breakfast
