I have been meaning to write a review for a while, as I stayed here a couple of years ago now, in Easter 2012. I always usually stay in Manhattan but wanted to get a flavour of Brooklyn and had read up about the trendy Williamsburg /Hipster area, so stayed here for a few days. What a great find and really interesting too. Teh hotel is run by tradition Hasidic Jews but there were a variety of people staying in the hotel when I was there. I am an experienced solo traveller of the 'off the beaten track' variety and this hotel is an extremely safe neighbourhood, plus very interesting to be in a different culture too. I used the subway, think is was about a 10 minute walk and never had any problems.
My room was huge, combining a bedroom area, lounge/kitchen/diner and a fabulous bathroom with a great deep bath for soaking in. There were no utensils in the kitchen but I got some on request. The manager was extremely helpful, I'm from the UK and I think he'd studied in London or Manchester so we spent quite a but of time chatting.
Overall great value for money and interesting to stay in a different area to normal. Recommended!
