“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Great room, with options to suit- 2 room, terraces with views of the city, or less fancy as it suits. Great neighborhood. Perfectly safe, with good restos. Winner, and the main metro line is close and easy into NYC.

We are very glad for choosing Greenpoint as the location of our recent trip to New York and very happy that we found the Box House Hotel for our stay. Box Street is almost the north tip of Brooklyn wich may seem a bit far away, but the neighborhood is great and the free cab service that BHH offers makes it easy and cool to move around. The property is new, beautiful and the spacious lofts are a very good option when looking for an apartment type of stay. You may be paying a bit more than the vacation rentals but here you get high hotel standards.

The rooms at the Box House are lovely- spotless, spacey and very comfortable. For the rates paid we could not find anything that looked half as nice in Manhattan. The queen sized bed was very comfy, the sofa bed large and the furnishings that of a high end hotel.

If you stay here however you need to be prepared to walk to the subway and pay for taxis. The staff never explained about the shuttle service on the 2 occasions that we were here so not sure how that works but the closest subway stations are about 10 minutes walk away. Having been prepared for an out of the way location this was okay, what we hadn't realised was that this made having a days sight seeing and then coming back to get ready to go out in the evening quite time consuming, so we tended to take what we needed for the evening with us.

All in all though a nice place to stay.

I have just spent two nights at The Box Hotel in Brooklyn - this place is not bad, but after balancing the pros and cons of my stay against the price I felt I could not award The Box a higher score.
Whilst our room was large and well appointed, it was extremely noisy. The blinds are ineffective and our room was bright by 6am. The air conditioning was weak. When I pointed this out to reception I was met with a ' so sorry' that felt like 'tough!'. Given the price of the room the way my complaint was handled was almost criminal,
Finally, the location is somewhat remote from the village area of Williamsburg, about 20 mins walk. We ended up paying quite a lot on cabs and frankly felt ripped off by the fares we were charged for the transfers, albeit this is not under the hotel's dict influence. All in all I left feeling blah about this hotel.

We absolutely loved our stay. Our room was like an oasis from the hustle and bustle of a busy day. I would say it felt like home but that would not be true. It was better than home! We will definitely be back.

Went to NYC for 4 nights for a girls weekend in May. We had a loft suite (bed and a pullout couch) and it was wonderful. The pull out couch was comfy and the room was quite large. The only complaint I would have would be that the bathroom didn't have any counter space, but as four girls we are resourceful and used the kitchen space instead. The people who worked the front desk were very helpful. They recommended great places to eat and drink. They were quick to print off directions if you needed help getting into the city. It is important to note that the hotel isn't right in the city. Having been to New York a few times now I realized I like staying in Brooklyn better. There are wonderful shops, markets and restaurants. There is a subway stop close to the hotel and then it is only 2 stops into Times Square. There is also cabs that will drive you anywhere within 2 miles for free, just leave them a tip. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Box House Hotel in Brooklyn in May 2013 whilst we attended a family wedding and doing some sight seeing.
What a fantastic hotel, the new reception area sets the standard for the entire venue, stylish, calm and very, very friendly staff (especially Kevin - thank you).
I emailed to check it would be okay to call a cab from the Subway on arrival - even though we had not checked in - which was fine and we used the cabs backwards and forwards to the supermarket and Subway many times during our 5 night stay when our feet had had enough! The cab guys are really friendly and no destination is a problem within the 1 mile radius.
Our loft suite was so wonderful, we felt right at home and being able to make coffee and breakfast each day was cost effective too as we found prices in NY have risen vastly since our last visit 3 years ago which we were not really prepared for (even considering our pound was much stronger then!) but coming back to the Box House Hotel after each day was a treat we did not tire of.
Great stay and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: We had a loft suite on the ground floor - which we think faced internally (room 115) - it was quiet...
