This is a really lovely hotel in quite an unusual location. There's a number of reviews that state that the area is not safe but this is completely untrue, the area is totally safe its just a little run down and a bit industrial. Located right in the middle of a Hacidic Jewish community, I can't deny that the surrounding area may be, on first look, slightly unappealing to the unseasoned visitor but it really is safe and easy to walk around.
The rooms were clean, roomy and comfortable and much better than some more expensive hotels you would find in Manhattan. The beds were a touch short for someone like myself at 6'1 but very comfortable nevertheless and having our own Balcony was nice. Bathroom nicely done also (but could have used a new shower rail!). Digital Safe, flat screen TV and little kitchenette with fridge and microwave all a real plus.
The staff were very friendly and helpful to any requests and they should all be commended for their conduct, I always consider this very important in any hotel on this factor they get 10 outta 10.
5-10 minute walk to nearby NY Subway network and Myrtle Avenue which is a cool little area to get breakfast (there is also a free continental breakfast in the basement of the hotel - we preferred to go elsewhere) and essentials like bottled water and snacks from the local shops. Manhattan really just is a short Subway ride away and The Brooklyn Heights area is walkable if you just keep on heading down Myrtle in the right direction (although a taxi driver thought us mad for walking that far!). Places like the new Barclays Centre only about $10 ride in a taxi and the hotel staff are happy to call a cab for you.
It was nice to stay in Brooklyn for a change and if you have previous experience of NYC then I highly recommend staying at The Condor as its the best hotel I've stayed in whilst visiting New York and you simply wouldn't get the same value for money in Manhattan.
Great Hotel, Lovely People, very happy customers! - Would stay again!
