I made a reservation through booking.com to stay at this hotel for a conference in Brooklyn I was going to. Before making the reservation, I remember very clearly that the caption on the side of the hotel on booking.com stated that "Free cancellation". I booked 2 rooms for two days because I was going with some people. A couple of... More

The most dismal experience of any hotel I have ever stayed in. I didn't want to take my shoes off in the room. Terrible maid service, terrible beds, terrible breakfast, sketchy neighborhood, management is unavailable to speak to. Wouldn't be surprised if they have bedbugs. There is a reason the price is so low.

Neighbourhood god in daytime (a lot of shops and small restaurants and very close to metro) but a little scary at nighttime. Manhattan is 12 min. away with the metro. Breakfast is very basic. Cleaning is poor, no vacuum for a week. Bed was OK. Price is lower than manhattan but still high $1150 for a week.

I was a little skeptical when I found this hotel for such a good deal but I was pleasantly surprised. The room is a decent size for being in New York and the bathroom was nice and new. The location is very close to a subway stop and a walgreens as well. The only problem I had was that the... More

Our room had the chain lock removed; the holes were quite visible. There is no sound proofing and you can here conversations whule walking by rooms. There was no place to put anything like toiletries in the bathroom (zero shelf space). We decided to try this place again after a satisfactory experience last October. We arrived at 12:45pm, well before... More

This hotel looks nice on the inside and out. The neighborhood is run down but I can tell you, as a female, I never felt unsafe even walking back after a show in Manhattan. The subway is right across the street and fairly convenient taking the J or M into manhattan. The biggest complaint I have is the noise. The... More

For the price, the hotel is OK. The neighborhood is not that bad... it's not worst than another in latin america (like santiago centro o Buenos Aires Obelisco). The Room was very clean, breakfast was nice (free Bagels, butter, juice, coffee, yogurt). Very close of a subway.... 20 minutes to Manhattan using Flushing Station. It's half of price about staying... More

First off, this Hotel markets itself as being in Williamsburg, it is not. It is in Bedford Stuyvesant right across the street from housing projects. I grew up in the outer boroughs so this wasn't a problem for me, although the Mrs. was a bit intimidated. The hotel has no real parking however I had no problem finding a spot... More

The hotel is nice, it's a new building, well maintained, but the staff and the surroundings of the hotel are appauling. When you walk up to the reception a bulletproof glass divides you from the receptionist. What kind of a message sends this to you travellers? A wrong one definitely. Then at 8.20am the cleaning lady started knocking on everybody's... More
