“Small room but nice location.”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Me and my 7 year son stayed for a night and he liked the room because it was small. I managed because I'm with a kid and we had 1 luggage and 1 hand carry, the luggage actually blocks the door, so when we go out I had to move the luggage. The wifi has nice speed. Its clean, comfortable and location is great. They have free breakfast but you have to walk 2 blocks to get to the diner. Rates is reasonable considering the location.

I don't suggest this hotel if you are a big person or a couple and certainly not if you have a lot of luggages, but if you don't mind the space the hotel is okay.

Dear Jepoyng,

Thank you for taking the time to complete our online survey regarding your recent stay at our hotel. We agree that our rooms are on the smaller side, but it is important to keep our low price point and NYC standards (smaller rooms on average than other cities), in mind.

We very much appreciate and value your feedback and will share it with our team. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the complimentary full breakfast, free Wi-Fi, as well as the value!

Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be even more pleasant than the previous one.

Sincerely,

Jacob Shtromandel

Well located but rooms are so tiny you can barely move if you're big or have company. The breakfast was good but very mediocre hotel not worth the price. The breakfast is in a separate cafe and not in the hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel like the plague and go only after all options have been exhausted

we came to Union hotel for one night and we looked for quite and nice place in brooklyn. the hotels location is perfect, its close to Botanic garden and Prospect park and only 5 minutes walking from the 5 th av. the stuff was very freindly.
The room was too small, but it was clean, and also good breakfast!

The location is great. It's about a 5 minute walk to Barclay's Center, the LIRR, and other main subway stations. Tons of things to do around the area, but quiet enough to get some sleep. The walls are thin so you can hear your neighbors if they are too loud We didn't have too many problems with it. The rooms are also fairly small, but there's a reason this is one of the cheapest hotels in the area. Design of the hotel is great and you won't feel like you are staying in a "____hole". Think of a modern hotel in a large European city.

I booked this hotel because of the price and proximity to our friends/Brooklyn Half Marathon start. I was a littler skeptical about the hotel because of the reviews - but decided to go for it anyways.

Pros:
-Price
-Clean
-Included Breakfast at Station Café (<-- best part)
-Coffee machine in the basement
-Big bathrooms in the rooms
-Proximity to Union stop on the Metro line
-Awesome bagel shop around the corner ("Brownstone Bagel")
-Awesome beirgarten around the corner (forget the name)

Cons:
-Really, really, really tiny room (like probably the smallest room I've ever stayed in)

Basically, if you want a big, luxurious room with a view - don't stay here. But if you are in Brooklyn to be out-and-about (and only in your room to sleep), then stay here - it's totally fine.

Room Tip: Ask to not stay on the 1st floor - could potentially be sort of loud.

We stayed at this hotel from 16.4.14 to 24.4.14. and were satisfied with its modern accommodations. We stayed in a Standard Room that features a King Bed. It was very small, however that did not matter as we just slept there. The room had a TV, AC, bathroom (shower, sink, hairdryer-soap and shampoo not refilled-)
The room did not have a safe, which was very disappointing!
The staff was acceptable. The receptionists -ladies- seemed bored to death, however one male receptionist was very friendly and always helped with whatever was needed.
Nearby was the subway station that provided a connection line to Manhattan. We ate breakfast at the Station Cafe diner -review on their page- The staff and food were amazing! The neighborhood of this hotel was calm and safe.
Overall good hotel for a week vacation.
