“We loved it, advise it to everyone and we will definitely come back!”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

This hotel was the ideal solution for what we were looking for!
For the following FOUR reasons:
1. Quality of accomodation: opened 9 months ago, this hotel is functional, stylish with a modern touch design of good taste and very comfortable (we travelled with our two kids of 12 and 17);
2. Location: located on a very safe, clean and quiet cross road, close to Brooklyn Bridge and a couple of streets away from Williamsburg, a new 'trendy côté' of New York, this hotel offers the possibility to easy liaise to Manhattan for the day and come back for a well deserved rest, out of the city's turbulence; the walks over quiet Brooklyn Bridge in the morning sun, facing Manhattan's magic will stay in our memories...
3. Facilities: every morning there is possibility to take a free of charge hotel shuttle that brings you to to Washington Square and Time Square; the drivers are very friendly and flexible.
4. Last but not least, the Welcoming: Davy Schwarz and his team (ask also for Daniel!) will do everything they can to provide you with an outstanding stay. They're great and the entire staff, including the household members are extremely friendly.
We thank them because they strongly contributed to the very high quality of our journey to NY....and we will definitely visit them and the hotel again! Philippe Chapel and Family.

This hotel is functional - clean, relatively quiet, nice bed, etc. And it was well priced. I stayed here as a refugee from Manhattan because as sometimes happens, the Manhattan prices were north of $400/night. This was closer to $200. The downside: it is not close to a subway stop (G is the closest and is about a 10-15 min walk). The neighborhood seemed safe enough, but not a particularly lively or inviting one (at least not w/in a several block radius) and there is no health facility here. The "breakfast room" would be better used as another hotel room, as there is not much you will want to actually consume there. And the internet was non-functional in the evening and very slow in the morning. Cab rides to and from lower Manhattan ran about 15 minutes and $15 each way.

This is a lovely little hotel in the heart of Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood. Apparently it was just built within the last year and it shows. Every granite countertop and every bit of stainless shines and gleems. We stayed in one of the top floor suites, which combines a kitchen/dining area with 12 foot ceilings and a huge skylight, along with a nice 2-single bed sleeping area with a view across the hudson to manhattan. The beds were exquisitely comfortable, and the complimentary contintental breakfast includes some very nice baked goods. Whenever we come back to Brooklyn to visit we'll stay here. This hotel is in a very conservative jewish neighborhood, there are mezuzah on the doorframes of each room. There is no TV in the room.

This new hotel was beautiful and clean, with a huge room and a complimentary continental breakfast. It is located in the middle of the Jewish district, so the area is absolutely safe also at night. We decided to stay there because it was the day of our departure, so it was closer to JFK than a Manhattan hotel, and was also close to Manhattan (10 minutes walk from the closer subway station). As I said, it worked fine for us, but if you plan to visit the city more days it is a little bit difficult to move with public transportation from Brooklyn to Manhattan and viceversa (otherwise my rating would have been 5 stars)
I would like to mention the manager of the hotel, that was helpful, kind and friendly.

Just spent 3 nights at the Pointe Plaza and we think it was a great base to explore NYC. Rooms were huge and clean, bathroom was modern and very clean. The hotel was quiet. The staff was helpful. There is a free shuttle that can take you to Union Sq or Times Sq at 8:30 or 9:30. Otherwise, there is a subway station 3 blocks away (10 minutes walk) and you can be in Manhattan rather quickly. The walk back in the evening was OK, we felt safe walking back to the hotel even with 2 kids aged 7 and 4. Breakfast is included.

The hotel rooms are very spacious, nice and clean. The beds are extremely comfortable- even thewith few hours sleep that I got, being on a business trip, I was well rested.

A special bonus and advantage was the free shuttle to Manhattan provided by the hotel, which made a huge difference compared to using public transport.

The general service at the hotel is outstanding; the staff is friendly andhelpful making every guest feel at home.

This is a very quirky hotel. I don't think it means to be it just is. It's new, very clean, with very friendly and helpful staff. Situated in the Jewish village the whole area feels very safe, and if you don't mind a 3 mile walk, you can wander safely over the Williamsburg Bridge and you're into Little Italy and Soho. There's also a $5 taxi ride to Times Sq twice a day in the morning which is great.
Once you've got used to quirky its great, i will definitely stay here again.
