Small and nice hotel in an upcoming area in Brooklyn, only 1 block away from Subwaystation Unionstreet, which is 4 stops away of Downtown Manhattan. The beds are of a good quality (first time ever in a hotel without a sore back...), the rooms a small but clean and comfortable. Staff is really friendly. And the diner where breakfast is... More

If you're expecting a glamorous hotel, this is not for you. But, for simple hospitality, the Union Hotel really cannot be beat. I stayed for 3 nights. The room was very small - barely larger than the double bed that was there. A small night table and a built in cupboard was all there was. Nothing on the walls except... More

I stayed for nine nights recently and could not fault the hotel from front desk service to room cleaning and amenities (love the basement ice machine). The location probably looks a bit intimidating to some, but blink again and its super cool South Brooklyn sharing the neighbourhood with the locals. Try a swim at the free public pool a block...

Our rooms were so small we had a difficult time finding a spot for our luggage. The beds were comfortable but were so tight to the walls we had to climb out over the end. There wasn't even room for a chair. The staff was very kind, helpful and accommodated us as best they could. Parking was an issue. Not... More

Although the young staff was pleasant and courteous, the hotel needs to attain a much higher service level serving the public. I arrived after 3pm and no one arrived to the front desk for at least 15 minutes to check me in. Anyone off the street could have come in and stole their laptop or other items. Not very comforting.... More

If you want to feel better about this place once you're there, read the bad Yelp reviews. Honestly. Prior to arriving, I was expecting a seedy hotel and what it actually turned out to be, is a small yet satisfactory hotel great for a night or two. The breakfast from the local cafe is also quite good. Definitely recommend if... More

Excellent location in Park Slope area of Brooklyn. Booked a pre-paid rate @ this hotel and arrived, the Russian Girl wanted the credit card. Advised I did not bring it along, neither did the confirmation as I only travel with 2 cards. Despite getting their money over 55 days ago, she insisted or 'I will not check you in' like... More

As our second stay near the New York area, we found that the rooms were quite small (about the size of 2 queen beds), however, the renovations are modern and simple. The rooms mostly contain two twin beds, a washroom, a flat screen TV, alarm and a very large wardrobe (by comparison); so, not much space to walk around, but... More

Our first trip to Brooklyn and upon our return we will be again be staying at the Union Hotel. Nice clean room, nice view of the lower-Manhattan skyline. Very helpful front-desk staff - who went out of their way to help a couple of obvious tourists. All-round a great experience and highly recommended.
