This hotel is ok but i wouldn't stay here again. The rooms are very small and cramped and breakfast is a voucher for a dinner that we couldn't find. The staff are friendly and amicable but that doesn't make up for the lack of space. There are facilities for use such as coffee maker in the basement but nothing to... More

The hotel staff at the front desk rushed me through the check-in paperwork. As I headed to my room, the first thing that hit me was the smell of heavy sweaty perfume like that of a strip club. When I entered the room the smell still remained. Then I laid down on top of the bed and my face was... More

Stayed there with my son (20) for family gathering. The room is very small, and provides everything necessary for an overnight stay, for a decent price in NY. There is no space for a desk or even a chair. Well located near by the subway both to Brooklyn and to NYC. It takes 15 minutes to reach the city. A... More

This hotel is everything it is advertised as - a reasonably priced comfortable place to stay in downtown Brooklyn. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast is two blocks away in a diner but that actually added to the charm of the stay. Will stay there again when in Brooklyn.

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.
