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.

My wife, son and I shared a bunk bed room with a separate full size bed. The rooms are (almost comically) small, as are most things in this hotel, but overall we had a wonderful experience. The room and hotel are immaculate and newly renovated and the price is extremely reasonable for the area. In addition, the staff was all extremely friendly and accommodating and we all had a great experience. Highly recommend this hotel!

Spent overnight on the Upper West Side of NYC. I booked two single rooms at the Belnord Hotel, which turned out to be perfect for my adult son and myself. The rooms were very reasonably priced. Each had everything essential (comfortable double bed, side tables with phone and alarm clock, closet, mirror, and excellent lighting. Bathrooms had ample plush towels, toiletries, etc.). Best of all, everything was wonderfully neat and clean! However, be aware that the rooms and bathrooms are very, very small. OK for one adult each. If you wish more space, you will want to book a double. We parked our car in a garage just a block away where the hotel arranges a discount. It was very convenient. The hotel has a small but adequate elevator and a very nice, bright staircase. The desk staff was a bit curt but overall helpful and efficient. It was a great help to be able to leave our suitcases in the storage room for a few hours after checking out. The hotel's location is around the corner from the Broadway subway and buses, an easy walk to Riverside Park, Central Park, and lots of restaurants and shops. All-in-all, a delightful stay.
