Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

American Dream Bed and Breakfast is a family owned business that has been home for travellers here in New York for the past 15 years.

Conveniently located in Manhattan’s historical Gramercy Park and Flatiron District neighborhood, American Dream is a stone’s throw away from some of the city’s popular sites and destinations: the Empire State Building, Flatiron Building, Madison Square Park and Union Square. Restaurants, bars and specialty shops also dot the surrounding neighborhood.

At American Dream, everything is a short walk (or subway ride) from something new to see or do while in New York.

All rooms are private with bunk beds and are equipped with sink and mirror, TV, AC, heater.

Bathrooms are shared and are located on each floor.

All accommodations include complimentary breakfast and free use of Wi-Fi.

Breakfast is served daily between 7am-11am. Every morning, our homemade waffles are served alongside assorted cereal, toast, seasonal fresh fruit, coffee, orange juice and various teas. Snacks (cookies, dried fruits and nuts) are also available thru out the day.

Kitchen is equipped with microwave and refrigerator.

Internet kiosks come with printer and scanner.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The room is very tiny, but clean with plenty of shared toilets and bathrooms. The area feels safe, even late at night. When I arrived I only had very little time to reach my first tour. I was immediately given my room. Afterwards the receptionist showed me where I could best take a subway uptown. I did make the tour. One thing I liked less was the fact that I had a suitcase weighing around 20kg which I had to carry up several floors and the steps were narrow. The hotel could use an elevator. The friendly owner made fresh waffels each morning and the first morning he also provided Nutella for my bread. I appreciated this a lot. As a guest you can use the computers. (advised is $ 1 for half an hour), which is lucky because my tablet had broken down. The last night I stayed there, there was an overflow of guests fot breakfast and there is not a lot of room in the breakfastroom. Guests could then take food to one of the other rooms.
