We stayed at the Park House Hotel over New year (2012-2013) and were pleasantly surprised. After searching high and low for a hotel relatively near Manhattan for new year which was under £300 a night we decided to take a risk by booking the Park House, as we had never stayed in Brooklyn before. The decor isn't for everyones taste but the hotel is charming and has character. The staff were friendly and attentive and you didn't have to wait for a lift. You also get free Wifi and breakfast is included, including fresh waffles, toast, fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea etc, not something offered by many hotels. The subway is literally 2 minutes walk away and we were in Park Slope in under 10 minutes, which is filled with restaurants and bars. It takes around 15-20 minutes to get to Manhattan from the hotel depending on trains, which ran regularly, which was perfect. The hotel is located in a Jewish community, we are not Jews ourselves but never felt uncomfortable, and the area seemed safe. You are also provided with a fridge etc in your room so we were able to keep water, juice etc for our stay.
There were no lines to check in or out, which was a refreshing change, I feel for the price of this hotel it really is a good find.
