“Reasonable choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2007

We stayed for 3 nights in November in room 18 at the front of the building. Although described as a guest house I would call it a motel – there are around 20 rooms and for a city centre location plenty of secure parking spaces. 40 Winks is in the Greenpoint area about a 20-minute walk from the Waterfront. The room was pleasant with AC, mini bar, a large balcony, decent bathroom, hairdryer and good-sized double bed. Breakfast is a pretty basic no-frills buffet. There is a small pool and lounger area. Reception is not manned 24 hours so don’t forget the access code to open the main doors! I recommend the nearby Marine Taxis who were very prompt. The slightly eccentric receptionist was very helpful. Overall a reasonable choice.
