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!

I booked this hotel after reading mixed reviews, but thought I would try it for location, it ended up not being as central as I hoped. The room was tiny which is expectable in NYC but the bed was too big with sharp edges both myself and my friend have bruises all over our legs from banging into it. The... More

This hotel was very disappointing. There is no space in the room for a person, the very high bed took up the entire room. No space for night tables or anything else. Bathroom was very bare, small and cheap. The price they get for this dump is criminal. Poor quality construction, one could hear every noise. Staff very unaccommodating. Very... More

This place should be called 'Hotel we don't give a crap'. The building is made of material so flimsy that every noise from every floor is heard in the guest room. My neighbours AC unit which was outside my window (near a corner) made a huge noise whenever it switched on. Needless to say our own AC unit sounded like... More
