NileGuide Expert Says:
Kitschy and shabby chic, this hotel was featured in the Woody Allen movie "Manhattan Murder Mystery" and is well known for its eclectic charm. Madonna used to live here before she became famous, and numerous magazines have held photo shoots here.

Hotel star rating:
Hotel 17, located just blocks from Union Square, the East Village and Gramercy Park, is a quirky spot perfectly suited to hipsters on a budget. A unique combination of cheap and chic, the hotel also has an interesting history, once housing a pre-fame Madonna and several other up-and-coming New York City notables. Rooms are available with either shared and private bathrooms, and are equipped with amenities such as television with basic cable, toiletries and limited wi-fi.
