We stayed there for a night last year. It seemed like a pretty rough neighborhood wich is the reason we only stayed one night. There wasn't anything wrong with the hotel. It was a nice room. I guess the breakfast wasn't anything special. At the end of the day it was a good experience but we wanted to live more...

A place to allow your time to be appreciated and incredibly relaxing. A place near your home but a true oasis, while too often we seek vacations elsewhere, the truth is you need to keep your sanity by going away while remaining local. A relaxing, decompressing and Disconnection that revitalizes your system. Holistically.

We made a reservation Sept 28th, 2015 for a 3 night future stay at this hotel- (May 18-20th 2016). We also had friends who made a reservation the same time. We were traveling in from the west coast. When we made this reservation, we used our American Express card for the confirmation. In December or January (2016) our American Express...

Stay somewhere else. Don't listen to other reviews! Our room smelled like a skunk. The carpet wad very dirty and the subway train is right outside the window- very noisy! The neighborhood is not safe and the parking situation is ridiculous. The bathrooms are worn out and dirty. Look elsewhere. It's not a good hotel. Way over priced and nasty.

New, new, clean hotel. Like other reviews, friendly staff, prefab but decent breakfast, not an area to walk at night, reasonable pricing to get to know Brooklyn, but you'll need to be mobile by car, train, or Uber. The rooms were nice size, bathroom too, and modern.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I was really surprised by the hotel appearance and the professionalism of the staff. I would definitely stay here again. The hotel is in great location in reference to trains and bus services and near to Fulton St. where there are small stores and fast food available.

This hotel has professional and courteous staff. The rooms were clean and the location was great to other spots in Brooklyn, some within walking distance. Parking is limited but you can find a nearby side street that will allow you to park you'll be find. Just make sure to following the parking rules. I would stay here again, when I...

Nice and clean big room, big screen TV with lots of channels, refrigerator and coffee machine and microwave. Nice bed, slept very good. Breakfast was good, although weak coffee for a Swede.... Neighbourhood a bit rough late at night,...

The rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. I only needed a room to crash for a night that was close to the start of the Brooklyn half marathon, which was the next morning. Turned out a few others did the same. Neighborhood is 'industrial' so you'll likely need to Uber it to wherever you are going.

although this area has a history of not being the best in New York City, we found it convenient with easy access to both subway and bus transportation and many local ethnic restaurants. The area is gradually gentrifying and although you do not want to have a street-side room because of the Long Island Railroad running by their otherwise it...
