I loved the location of this hotel. On a corner and in walking distance to local hangouts and grocery stores. Also, close to the subway, which made it easy and convenient for exploration of the city. The hotel staff was amazing! Helped us find our way, direct us on which train to take and even helped hail our cab on several occasions. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We had complimentary hot chocolate and tea available in the afternoons. I would definitely stay in this hotel again and would recommend it to any visitor wanting to visit the city.

Been there over 15 visits. Desk staff a bit stiff. Since this is a remodeled apartment building, the rooms are a bit inconsistent within room categories. I find I need to change my room about half the time. The lobby, library and bar are where the action and comfort lie. There's a cool nation on the 16th floor occasionally open. Dogs allowed.
The big, big negative is the mandatory 'Urban Fee' per night. Around $26 plus tax, it provides you a welcome drink, bottle of water in the room, and Internet access. On a five night stay this is an extra $150 in their pocket for bupkis and a bottle of water. It's a mechanism to appear a cheaper hotel when browsing web reservation systems. I find it fairly insulting to longtime, repeat guests.

We stayed at the Belnord for our first visit to New York and it was quiet and clean. The rooms are small but that is to be expected. No issues with hot water in the morning but in the evening you have to run the water for a while before it gets hot. It's a few blocks from Central Park but I would suggest taking the Subway or the bus to Times Square.

Close to Lincoln Center, the Beacon Theatre, Zabar's, Citarella and Trader Joe's. Lots of public transportation options. What's not to like! Very quiet rooms, freshly renovated, without a peep of street noise. A simple but adequate kitchenette allows for making breakfast without hassle. My small room was perfect for one person but would have been tight for two. The only thing missing was an easy chair to settle in to read or snooze. When I mentioned this at the front desk when checking out, the person on duty was surprised and said that the rooms are generally equipped with an easy chair. Next time I will make certain that my room has one. I didn't make use of the exercise room or business center, but they seemed very adequate. The lobby Library with a comforting fire going on a freezing day is a nice amenity. I will return.

Pocket Guide: West 71st Street Historic District Upper West Side Hotels
Some bemoan that the Upper West Side has become a version of the Upper East Side. Case in point: Columbus Circle’s Time Warner Center, one of New York’s priciest real estate. The Upper West Side includes the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the American Museum of Natural History, and Columbia University. Harlem, the legendary African American neighborhood, lies north and caps Manhattan.
