“A little jewel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

The only criticism I have seen that I agree with is that the duvets are too heavy, so you have a choice of being a bit chilly under a thin sheet, or turning the heat way down and being weighed down by the duvet.

Other than that, the continental breakfast is amazing with its fresh fruit, fresh breads, decent yogurt and good coffee. Yes, the rooms are small, but this is New York. Parking spaces? The fact that they have them, rather than charging you $40 a day for valet parking is a miracle.

Lots of drawer space, so you can manage in the small room. Good beds, a great hair dryer, a tiny ironing board--and close to many good Williamsburg restaurants. The staff could not be nicer and more accommodating. I just hope they keep their great rates!

Room Tip: Spend the extra $20 and get a room overlooking Manhattan.

Stayed here as a friend's band played nearby. Small, but very tastefully decorated and clean rooms included amenities like an alarm clock with iPod dock. The price was very economical for the area. Staff was very efficient and friendly. Breakfast was decent. I would stay again even if doing things in NYC.

Stayed here for a week while helping my son move and the location (easy access to subway and Manhattan; walking to Bedford Ave., McCarren Park etc) and staff helpfulness were exceptional. The rooms and beds are comfortable, if small (even by NYC standards), and it was nice and quiet on the backside away from the BQE on the ~4th floor. The hotel is spotless and the breakfast choices were a nice addition. Every single person went out of their way to help with directions, suggestions, and all things related to moving complexities. Free parking was helpful and made it a far more affordable trip.

Room Tip: upper floor, back side away from BQE.

Enjoyed this hotel quite a bit: nice location, great selection at the continental breakfast, free parking and clean. The staff is nice. My room was a bit small, but it worked out nicely for the time that I was there. Even had a view of the bridge and it wasn't too noisy.

The price was a bit much, but it's New York and it was Christmas time.

Oh, and they even have full sized bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the shower.

The only thing that's missing is a fitness center.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, then a room away from the highway might be a better option for you.

Don't be put off by the location of this hotel. It is close to a freeway, but it is well insulated from most of the traffic noise, especially in the back room which I had. Facilities were good and very clean with towels changed every day. Free Wifi throughout. Good breakfast served until late morning
Just a few minutes walk away you have the suburb of Williamsburg with many small restraunts and coffee bars catering for all tastes. Within a few yards there is a newly opened bar in which I was was made very welcome.

Le Jolie is surprisingly well situated to access Manhattan with a five minute walk to the L train subway station at Bedford Avenue, and a further five minutes to the East River Ferry (for lower and midtown Manhattan). I reached Times square in about 30 mins from leaving the hotel.

Give it a go - I'll be back!

Room Tip: Go for a back room if possible. Quieter and just about accesses a view of the top of Empire State Bu...

This hotel is perfect if you want to enjoy Brooklyn/Williamsburg. It is cheap, central and confortable. The staff is very friendly and kind: They kept our luggages for 5 days. Moreover, the rooms are spacious, clean and confortable. Free wi fi everywhere!

Hotel Le Jolie is a great place to stay for an economical and very comfortable visit to New York City. It has an excellent location in Brooklyn, only a few blocks from the subway station from which you can easily access Manhatten via the L train. The rooms are small but very comfortable. Although it is located just across from the Brooklyn Queens Expressway, we did not find the road noise to be an issue in getting a good night's sleep. The continental breakfast was a pleasant surprise and better than we had expected. The staff at the hotel were excellent; they were pleasant, friendly and very helpful with our requests. The neighbourhood had some excellent restaurants nearby. I would not hesitate in recommending the hotel.
