Selected this hotel by default as our first choice was completely booked because it was Valentine weekend. It was in close walking distance to our daughter 's apartment in Park Slope. We visited on one of the coldest weeks in Feb. By reading previous reviews we knew the rooms would be small, which it was. Room was cold as the... More

Where to start, this establishment is extremely small. I booked this hotel online with Budgetplaces.com. I decided to book this hotel because the pictures online of the hotel rooms looked very nice and the rooms looked exquisite. They had a special for $69.00 dollars a night that weekend. Once my partner and I got there the front desk agent said... More

We stayed at Union Hotel for 10 nights. It was the first time we visited New York. We stayed at room number 210. It was next to the lift so we knew in our arrival that it is going to be noisy. The room was extremely small and same size as the bathroom. That size for the bathroom was plenty.... More

Finding a room this close to Manhattan for under $100 was a very pleasant surprise. Since we had tickets for a show in Brooklyn, the Union Hotel was a perfect location. I found the staff to be extremely pleasant and helpful. Based on other reviews, I was expecting the room to be tiny, but that was not the case! All... More

I spent a weekend at the Union Hotel in Brooklyn. I was a bit worried as I didn't know what to expect. As I was working literally opposite the hotel it couldn't have been more convenient. I checked into the rather small foyer without any problems and then went up to my room. It was very compact but all that... More

I experienced the worst service I ever at this hotel. The room is ok, the hotel location is ok but the customer service is disastrous. The receptionist on our arrival was incredibly rude and hugely unhelpful.

We stayed at The Union Hotel for 3 nights in the beginning of January and we will definitely stay here again! Though the room was small, it was clean, sunny and had exactly what we needed- a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom (spacious shower!). All the hotel staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located... More

I was lucky enough to snag the last military rate room available at this hotel for New Years Eve. We were in town for the Elton John concert and really all we needed was a clean, comfortable bed at a decent price. This is exactly what we got! For $155/night, we had a small, but clean room on the first... More

Only book this if you are ok with a very small room, that is the most important. Aside from that this hotel offers a good location in Brooklyn, clean rooms, very tiny reception and a very good breakfast at a diner nearby. Sure, it is not comfortable to have to walk a block to go for breakfast, but you get... More

This property is a good choice for travelers looking for low-priced lodging in Brooklyn that offers convenient access to Manhattan and Queens, as well to Brooklyn's Park Slope neighborhood. The hotel is located a short walk from the Union Station, which is on the R and N lines. The room rate includes breakfast at a very cool diner next to... More
