this hotel is perfect: good rates, great rooms and wonderful staff! The subway is so close and Manhattan is 2 stops away with the A-train.... Victoria and Laetitia were the 2 ladies we'll always remember! They both did more than their best to make us feel welcome and cared for! One at the reception, the other one in the breakfast... More

Nice hotel, clean, only 2 blocks from subway. Breakfast was good. Room was a bit cramped with two double beds but we managed fine. Noisy due to the LIRR passing every 10 mins but we got used to it. We found the noise of the fridge more annoying and would turn it off at night! The bed was extremely comfortable.

This hotel is OK if you're traveling in Brooklyn. It really isn't convenient to public transportation as strange as that seems since you can hear the subway from your room. The noise isn't disturbing but it's there. You have to walk a few block to get a cab and if on foot this is not in a location you'd walk... More

I will say all of the staff we encountered were great. The hotel is not in a very nice area (I probably should have known this but I am not that familiar with Brooklyn). It is also next to the elevated LIRR with a stop right outside the windows of the front of the hotel - with trains stopping and... More

We used the metro system. So, in order to get it we walked around a not to clean area. Needed to pay a lot of attention of the neighborhood specially at night. Suggestion, if you are not in the mood of an adventure, do not take the Metro, the hotel has trust full taxi's that they might call at your... More

We recently spent 3 nights here (our second time) and were once again very pleased with everything. Clean and friendly. You can always depend on a comfortable stay. A big plus being that we did get a room in the back, as we had requested. Close to the subway if you want to head into Manhattan but also within walking... More

I needed to spend one night in Brooklyn and had never traveled there before. I used the reviews in Tripadvisor to select the Best Western Plus Arena Hotel. I had driven 10 hours straight prior to my arrival and really needed a pleasant welcome, a clean room, and most important a comfortable bed. Best Western did not let me down....I... More

Having stayed at this hotel twice now it has become our first choice when visiting NYC. It's very close to the subway and Brooklyn just gets better with each visit. It's competitively priced, the staff cleanliness and comfort have never disappointed and the free WiFi & inclusive breakfast is a nice bonus.

I stayed here a few months ago and then I came back and stayed again over the Easter Holiday. This place always brings me back. The staff is wonderful and very hands on.

This hotel was clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and my room was great! The parking leaves a bit to be desired, but it is a dense urban area so parking is always an issue anywhere you go. I stayed for a week for work and it was nice to come back to a great room every night... More
