I stayed at the Nu Hotel for 6 nights. Clean, friendly with a well trained professional staff. The breakfast is great with a large variety of choices and nice supply of newspapers. There also is a small gym. Great local spot in a good location.

if you want to enjoy the brooklyn vibe, stay at the nu hotel at the corner of atlantic and smith. after exploring the unique independent shops and restaurants and bakeries that brooklyn neighborhoods have to offer, retreat to your haven at the nu hotel where you can enjoy a hip lobby and refreshments. when it is time to retire and recharge for another day, enjoy a comfortable bed in a clean, quiet room.

Our sincere apologies Maximilian! We just recently upgrade all of our guest rooms with brand new fan coil units and with the onset of the colder weather: We're discovering that some guest rooms require the replacement of some hot water regulating valves. The situation with your guestroom was not apparent during the installation and testing of unit. When we encounter any similar type issue: We usually recommend a room change (though inconvenient) or do our best to repair the situation. In your particular guest room, we learned of a need to replace some plumbing. As your name is somewhat encrypted on this review: I'd appreciate it if you'd reach out to me individually and advise me of any compensation offer that was made to you for your discomfort. As you can see from the majority of review we receive, we're dedicated to providing comfort and service. We're equally disappointed whenever a stay with us is compromised. I would like to encourage you to contact me personally and/or stay with us again to reverse your experience. gary.desoiza@nuhotelbrooklyn.com
