Stayed here for several nights, and was pleasantly surprised. This used to be a somewhat dicy part of Brooklyn, but it has been mostly transformed in a very positive way. Felt perfectly safe walking around the entire neighborhood. Much of the area is being brought upscale, but there are loads of traditional small businesses and old timers living around here, which gives the area its great New York character.
The hotel is apparently a fairly new building. The room was small, but perfectly adequate. Well kept, clean, and no problems with the utilities (but be warned that the hot water is hotter than I've ever experienced anywhere, so be careful about mixing hot and cold at the faucet and shower)
Continental breakfast available; nothing fancy but good food. Hotel staff was unfailingly friendly and helpful. Our room faced right onto the busy expressway across the street, but the noise level was completely acceptable. The double-double windows do a great job of sound insulation.
Two small caveats for potential travelers here:
Hotel parking is very limited in the lot, but plenty of free on-street parking is available, and I think it's safe and reliable.
The air conditioning unit in the room was unreasonably loud, and I guess that's my only significant complaint here. Everything else was terrific.
