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

This hotel is clean, and acceptable in a pinch. However, it does not compare favorably with any other Ascend Collection hotel I've stayed at, or even most Comfort Inns, and I've stayed at hundreds of them over the past 7 years. The walls of the room & bathroom had patches of white spackle all over, and clearly needed fresh paint.... More

Our room was amazingly compact. Good looking decor. Everything we needed was in a small, compact space. Beds were comfortable. Two bottles of water were on the bedside table. TV had limited stations, but we came to Brooklyn to visit our daughter, not to watch TV. The bathroom had a nice walk-in shower and was cleverly set up so that... More

The photo of the room on line makes it look big but actually it was very small even by big city standards. The mattress was horrible, my lovely travel mirror fell off the not so steady shelf in the bathroom.the lighting was very very poor! The staff however was very nice.

It really depends on how flexible you are - literally and figuratively! If you have a sense of humor about the size of the room and the need to climb over your roommate enroute to the bathroom, then you will be ok. Bathroom was big compared to the room. New fixtures and clean. Room seemed a bit less clean, but... More
