You should choose the Hotel Le Jolie in Brooklyn if, you have someone in Brooklyn to visit or you do not want to pay the Manhatten rates. The Le Jolie is very decent, clean and well run hotel in the heart of Brooklyn Williamsburg. The rooms are, as reported in other reviews, small, but if what you need is a comfortable bed and a good shower, you will not be disappointed. I am 6'2" and am always pleased when I see a shower head that is higher then chest high. The Le Jolie bathroom is also small but efficient. The bed is comparible to the Starwood beds and better then Marriott.

The neighborhood is a little on the rough side, but we felt safe on the well lit streets. Within a short walk there are two nice bars, both with beer gardens (see review of the Loriley).

I would recommend a room at the back of the hotel if available. The QB Expressway passes outside the front door and could be a problem for a good night sleep. We had a room in the back and had a great night's sleep.

I toyed between giving this hotel a 4 or 5 star. The reason I went with 5 star is that it is one of the cleanest hotels I have been in. The sheets crackle! I was also very impressed with how nice the staff is. I had booked the hotel at a higher price and when I noticed the price had dropped for our time frame I called the hotel and got the lower price with no problem. Space is at a premium here and very well utilized. We had a room with twin beds and it was small but we were not there very much. My one complaint would be the air-conditioning. It blew straight on my bed and I used the comforter to block it. The location was great for walking to a relative and also for taking the L subway into Manhattan. An adequate breakfast is served with cereal, yogurt, bagels and Starbucks coffee. A staff person is there all the time and keeps it very clean. It reminds me of a boutique European hotel. Parking is available and there is a good beer store on the corner! We would definitely return to this hotel.

This hotel is a real gem!Excellent staff, safe, very clean, nice rooms. I loved the room--immaculately clean!!! Housekeeping does a wonderful job--amenities (shampoo, water, towels etc. were gladly offered). Reasonable price, nice complementary breakfast, great coffee, great staff! The bed and linens were the most comfortable we've ever slept in. I will definitely return and recommend this little hotel to other family and friends. Location is very close to two subway stations and to the buzzing neighborhoods. Neighborhood is mixed, and the hotel is a jewel in the middle of it. It's very close to the freeway.

Our priority was finding a hotel where we could safely park our car while walking in New York. Le Jolie's parking lot is well lit and we were confident of the security throughout our stay of 3 days. Hand sanitizers are posted throughout the hotel. Shower dispensers of soap, shampoo and conditioner were convenient. The room is not large enough for two people to walk around but it was certainly enough for our needs - we weren't in New York to walk around in a hotel room, and there were more than enough drawers (6) to empty our large suitcase. We stored our suitcase on top of the wardrobe.There is a safe in the room. Staff came immediately when called for assistance. They were helpful with our questions and all staff were cordial. Breakfast was always fresh, plentiful and the eating area was kept clean by an attentive hostess. We faced the highway but were never disturbed by traffic noise. We heard other guests get off the elevator but heard no sounds through the walls between rooms. The A/C might bother a light sleeper but we did not think it noisy. The neighborhood was rundown in places but quiet, not busy and well lit enough to walk at night without concern. The subway to Manhattan is an easy 5 min. walk and there are things to see in Brooklyn too. We took an interesting walk to the Brooklyn Bridge and walked across one day. This compact boutique hotel is clean and inviting. Guests included many seniors and repeat guests. We are satisfied that Le Jolie will be our hotel for future trips to New York.

Don't let the size or location fool you. This hotel has all that you'd expect from a 4 or 5 star hotel. I love it! Comfortable pillows and beds. Flat panel TV's and internet. CHARMING! I plan on returning with my husband soon! You'll love it too!

Room Tip: Very nice breakfast set-up! YUMMY!

We recently had a serious medical emergency which necessitated changing our travel arrangements to New York in August. The management of the hotel were a delight to deal with and really assisted us to a level that was above and beyond the call of duty. We had heard so many good reports on the hotel and are happy to add this one. Many thanks to the management and staff of Hotel Le Jolie

This is a great place to stay. The reviews showed some hated noise from the highway, other guests, and the AC/Heat unit. We didn't notice the highway noise, guests could be heard in the hallway but not the room, and the AC/Heat unit did make noise going on/off but it was not too objectionable. Location is within easy walking distance to the subway. Not the best neighborhood but we did not feel threatened (Mother w/17 yr old daughter walking at night). Great breakfast constantly being replenished and cleaned by conscientious polite staff. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful too. A real gem of a place.
