Selina Chelsea Reviews


Located in the art district of downtown Manhattan, Selina Hotel Chelsea New York City is just steps from the best of New York City culture. Think popular cultural hotspots like Hudson Yards, High Line, Madison Square Garden, and Chelsea Market.

Start your day indulging in a freshly made breakfast at the heart of the action. Explore the surrounding area on foot, browse the many local galleries on your doorstep or take a trip on the High Line down to Chelsea Market for upscale eateries, pop-up shops, and boutique farm stands. As the sun sets, a craft cocktail or cold beer at the bar should help you unwind while vibing with other guests. Later on, head to the streets to experience NYC’s eclectic nightlife scene first hand.

Location and Contact


• By bus
• The best option to travel from JFK and LaGuardia Airports to Midtown Manhattan - where we’re located - is by hopping on the NYC Express Bus. This is the official bus operator for New York and tickets should cost $16 for each journey.
• The Express Bus also runs between Newark Liberty International Airport and New York City. Routes start at 5 am and run continuously through 1 am - please make sure you’re aware of your travel times to choose the best option for you. Tickets for this journey cost $18 for one way or $30 for a round trip.
• Please bear in mind that the NYC Express Bus is a public transportation service and therefore we cannot book this for you in advance.
• From the airport
• Newark (EWR), John F. Kennedy (JFK), and La Guardia (LGA) are the closest airports to Selina Chelsea NYC.
• By Train:
• When you land at EWR or JFK you can take the airtrain directly to a train or subway that will drop you off at Penn Station. For EWR transfer to the New Jersey Transit at the Newark Liberty Airport station and for JFK connect to the Long Island Railroad or subway at Jamaica Station.
• By Uber/Taxi:
• When you land, take an Uber or taxi to Selina. We’re 55-75 minutes from JFK, and 45-60 minutes from Newark (varies during rush hour). Expect an Uber or taxi to be $75 - $100 to JFK, $65-$75 to Newark.
• Selina Chelsea has joined forces with Blade making it possible to travel to and from the property to LGA and JFK in just 5 minutes. For only $195, you’ll enjoy on-the-ground transportation, a comfortable helicopter ride, and the added luxury of Blade lounge access before and after your flight.
