My wife and I were very pleased by the Union Hotel. Yes, the rooms are *very* small -- barely bigger than the bed. You'll have to put your suitcase inside the wardrobe, as there's no floor space to speak of. The place has clearly been put together on the cheap, with sloppy paint and low-end furniture. There's no lobby. But everything was clean and the private bathroom was actually a fairly normal size. The free breakfast at the Station Cafe, right above the Union St. subway station, is a great perk -- it's a real old-fashioned NY Greek diner and you get your choice of real, made-from-scratch breakfast dishes, including French toast, pancakes, eggs, granola with fruit and Greek yogurt, etc. Although it's just around the corner from 4th Ave., our room was actually very quiet and relaxing (we were facing the back, though -- you might ask to avoid the street side). The neighborhood is gentrifying fast -- totally safe, full of yuppies at all hours. Two-minute walk to the R train at Union St., or about 8 minutes to a whole bunch of different subway lines at Atlantic/Pacific. Quick walk to restaurants and shopping both in Park Slope and in Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill. Honestly, I did not expect to find anything this decent for less than $150 in NYC.
