My wife and I stayed here recently for one night. We wanted a place relatively close to where our son lives in Astoria and this was a good location for us. We read the reviews in Trip Advisor first, of course, and it just sounded like a cool place- and it was. We were greeted warmly at the front desk although our room key didn’t work and I had to go back to the front desk and have it re-set or whatever. The hotel is a converted factory and has, for example, concrete floors with some rugs in certain places. There was a lobby on the 2nd floor although kind of a work in progress but the relaxation area on the 1st floor off the main lobby that was very nice. There is a coffee bar there [we had coffee and croissants for breakfast] and they’re working on a restaurant.
The room was neat- with antique or antique-looking furniture but with a modern bathroom and nice TV. Our room was on the 2nd floor and the view was, well, interesting [see my pictures]. The bed and bedding was very comfortable and we slept very well that night. I noticed that some other reviewers mentioned it was noisy and I could understand that given the concrete floors but it was quiet during our stay [on a Wednesday night]. The room did not have a closet but had hooks instead to hang your clothes.
The Paper Factory Hotel is only a few blocks away from The Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria which we toured the next day. The location was fine for us- especially during the day- but might be a little unsettling at night- take a taxi.
This hotel might not be for everyone but we really enjoyed our stay here and the price was reasonable at $159.00 plus taxes. I recommend you try it- and hope you found this review helpful.
