“Not a 'big box' lodging”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We recently spent three nights in the quirky, hip Box House, a place unlike any other hotel we've visited. Made of an old door factory in a semi-industrial neighborhood, the Box has strange architectural features, random books on end tables and a couple of spiffy old Checker taxicabs out in front. They're available for short trips around the trendy Greenpoint streets. The people who work here are very congenial, from the attentive doorman to the good humored desk clerks. We stayed in a room with an unusual pullout sofa that converted to a very comfy bed. The kitchen was well-equipped; shower stall was fitted with stationary tubes of soap and hair product. Our room had a nice patio whose view was partially obscured, but we could still see the tips of the Empire State and the Chrysler building. We enjoyed our stay and will likely return to the Box House.

Staff very friendly. Rooms carefully fornished. Very good position if you want to visit Manhattan easily. With a short minute walk you can get at the first tube station that in two stops will take you to Grand Central.

Have just returned from 6 nights stay at the Box House Hotel - what a find! All the reviews that I read beforehand were so true. The staff were friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We were 5 in the room and the room was spacious with a fully fitted kitchen and everything that you could need. The room was immaculate and beautifully and artistically decorated. Easy access to Manhattan via the 7 line - 2 stops to Time Square and Williamsburg/Brooklyn are great areas to wander around. Good places to eat and even ordered 2 takeaways that were delivered to the door - so easy!
We liked living amongst the real people of New York rather than Manhattan. Great taxi service that was free and so many recommendations from the staff for us to do everyday. Cant say enough about the whole experience.

Room Tip: There was no restaurant but that was no problem at all. We had 5 in our room and felt fine. Rooms ar...

Rooms are spacious and clean. The decor is original and whimsical. The kitchen was well equipped and they provided all the extra touches ( complementary tea bags, coffee, and a bar of chocolate, etc.)
The staff are very helpful, we appreciated the complementary taxi service to nearby locations. It's a very convenient location if you'd like to visit Brooklyn or even to go into Manhattan, etc. We would heartily recommend staying here; it's a lovely hotel
If you're not familiar with the neighborhood, be aware that it's a bit dodgy, but we felt relatively safe. You'll find a mix of interesting restaurants and bars mixed in with seedy looking establishments.

The Box House is such a cool warehouse-type building located at the northern tip of Greenpoint. It's within walking distance of Williamsburg and the G Train. Now, if you want a place on a fancy street, this isn't it - but hey, it's Brooklyn. The hotel itself is very well maintained and lovely. The hotel room was really a modern apartment with a full kitchen and two flat screens. Our room had no windows, but 3 huge skylights and was VERY quiet. The bed was a bit on the firm side for my taste, but the quality was fine. Feather pillows are furnished but they have regular pillows if you ask. The other bed was a really nice fold-out couch that was quite comfortable. The room and common areas were extremely clean and all of the staff were simply amazing, especially Joshua; they were genuinely friendly, caring, accommodating and helpful! Loved it.

Room Tip: Hotel is beside the Pulanski Bridge (which is pedestrian/bike friendly with a nice Manhattan view...

We do a lot of research before booking a hotel for our family of four. Thankfully the reviews and photos for the Box House were very accurate and this hotel is as good as other guests have described. Firstly the building inside and out is immaculate, and very funky. Rooms are spacious, clean, superbly decorated and well kitted out. We ate in the room sometimes and there is a good kitchen for preparation of light meals. Location is not a problem with subway handy and the guys ready to drop you off locally - although the walks to the 7 train (10mins) and G train (20 mins) are okay as well and get you out exploring the non-touristy bits. Staff are the best we have met and every query was dealt with efficiently from advice to airport transfers. This location is an excellent base for exploring Manhattan, Brooklyn and beyond. It is also a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan coming back to this quiet spot. Highly recommended and we will be back!!

We stayed here for four nights as a family. Fantastic hotel with a cool vibe and great welcoming atmosphere. The apartment had everything you would need and the laundry room was great. It was nice to not be right smack bang in the middle of the city and the local neighbourhood had a real community vibe. The Greenpoint station was the easiest subway to use. Acapulco mexican, just a couple of blocks away, was great. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here.
