This hotel is a disgrace. The room was smaller than a dorm- no desk, no sitting area, no closet, no chairs, no iron, no nothing! Barely any room for 2 people to be in. There was no internet or air conditioning in my room or in the hallways! I had to sit in the lobby to get wifi. Other guests... More

First time in Brooklyn! True to NYC, the room was very small, but clean and nice. I would stay here again. It was definitely a good location and we were able to walk everywhere. It's close to stores, lots of cute little restaurants, and near the subway!

I do not have much to say about this hotel other than it WAS some kind of experience. the location was in a run down neighborhood with dirty streets, but that could be just that part of Brooklyn. However, rooms were not exactly as shown on web photos, rooms were rather too small, beds were also uncomfortable, The staff acted... More

Hello, The customer is clearly a Fraud. It is an indisputable fact that we are located in Park Slope, one the best neighborhoods. The hotel can only do their best and try to recover items left from the room. It is customers responsibility to check the room prior to leaving. I am happy to sit down and have a drink... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days while we attended a conference at the Barclay Center. When we first entered the room the small size was shocking. There was enough room for the bed and that's about it. BUT... once we figured out where to put the suitcases (on top of the built in cabinet over... More

I needed a reasonably priced and clean place to sleep for one night while visiting family and friends in Brooklyn. This hotel fit the bill perfectly. Although the room was small, my daughter and I were able to fit all our stuff in the drawers and shelves provided. It reminded me of a dorm room, with its ability to maximize... More

In my 68 years of life, this hotel had to be the worst experience I have ever had. I realize that Thoreau and his adherents wanted to simplify their lives, but there is a big difference between simplification and cruel and unusual punishment. Our big mistake was in not reading the reviews on Trip Advisor before we booked our room... More

When I travel, I spend my time in my hotel showering and sleeping. This place is perfect for that. Small, and a little quirky, not quite a boutique hotel, but stylish. Didn't have bugs as others have said. I'd suggest it. Free breakfast down the street at a diner worked for us also, as its right next to a subway... More

Nice looking but Very small room. Upon check in was told that the elevator was not working. luggage rack which made it hard to work our luggage. Maids did not clean room for two days even though we asked several times. Had to beg for clean towels. WiFi hard to hook up. Kept logging off. Would not recommend this hotel.

No frills but clean and the included breakfast at the Station was perfect! Friendly and helpful staff behind desk! The room is tiny and bring a clip on reading light (no bedside lighting) but only 6 minutes from my daughter and son-in-law and near the subway!
