Fun little place to stay!!!!

I have stayed here a few times now and like it a lot. Yes it is a tad older and may need a little updating it is quite affordable. It is clothing optional which is a little fun, have seen some handsome men in their undies and less. The guys who run it have always been really nice and hospitable to me.

My phone experience was very pleasant

I am not understanding of all the negative reviews here based on the long telephne conversation I had with them today. My call lasted 30 minutes or so, at no time was I rushed, and all of my questions were answered. I had mentioned the NYTimes articles that said they had in-house massages and I was told they were no longer offered. I am planning a visit in the beginning of May and will post then, too, but my talk was very much contrarian to the tone of the written reviews here. As a fan of clothing free envirnment, it is tough to find them in this area.

Rude, Unprofessional, Creepy, Very Gross! Nightmare!

Its been a nightmare to stayed at this place, it cost $125 per night, ist not worth it at all. The guy who checked me in, the middle age guy( around 40 something) its freakin stupid and horny PIG( my suggestion, go the gym and started work out) , he started to touched me when he checked me in to the room. And the other OLD GAY GUY, very old, he is full of drama, i saw he kicked the guy out of the place because he forgot to pay the extra night,! MY suggestion to CHELSEA MEWS GUESTHOUSE, clean your place, i know its an first old gay guesthouse, but it doesn't mean the person who worked there have to be an old minded! being professional without touching or groping people. with $ 125 you can have a nice private room in chelsea via airbnb.com! and you will feel comfortable without hearing an OLD GAY guy screaming and yelling!
