Situated in Upper West Side, the Belnord is a great option for families who want to stay near the action of the Big Apple, but enjoy a budget-friendly stay. The five-story hotel sits on a quiet, residential street only three blocks from Central Park. Families can stay in suites with two beds, two flat-screen televisions with basic cable, black-out curtains and classy, wood floors. Typically, suites contain small seating areas with a table and a work desk. Wireless Internet is complimentary and available throughout the hotel. Though the hotel has no onsite dining options, many restaurants are in the area. Families can sample the nearby Hot and Crusty, City Diner or Mughlai. The 86th Street Subway Station is a block away, making it easy to get downtown to tourist attractions. Families can also walk to the American Museum of Natural History.

Another really good stay at the Belford. The rooms are small but the bed is very comfortable and all the amenities work well. The hotel is also extremely close to the 86th metro stop and the general area has plenty of nice bars and restaurants. The staff could be friendlier (and don’t seem really happy) but maybe they are used to difficult guests, who knows. They do an efficient job though and there’s always someone covering the front desk . Overall I really like this place and would definitely stay again.
Have been staying at Belnord for a few years now and this is still best value for money in Manhattan. Staff are exceptional and have to commend staff for great service and help. Rooms are functional, although small, and bathrooms clean and shower great. Love closeness to Subway Line 1. Happy that there is consistency in quality and service.
