“Loved this Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

I Loved staying at the Box House...it was like a home away from Home. The staff were so helpful and the taxi drivers were always willing and wanting to help us. I Loved this Place & would stay there again...Any day...Thank You Box House for making our stay so much more enjoyable.

Room Tip: We never had maid service and did not care to so it was Great not to have to think of them coming in...

all the positive review is correct it was a wonderful hotel especially when you travel with family, my two boys can crash on the sofa while me and my wife enjoy our unique corner upstairs, the kitchen set is working well and the laundry room is a big help.
The staff is very helpful (my warmest regards for Kevin, May and the checkers cab crew Louis and Sigh) thank you for making our holiday better :)

Just came back from staying at The Box House Hotel and missing it already!
Beautiful hotel, gorgeous rooms & excellent value for money.
The rooms are even bigger than imagined and it really was like a home away from home.
Fantastic staff members who were always willing to help and very friendly.
Beds were extremely comfortable, excellent kitchen & bathroom facilities.
The only downfall would be the ceiling blinds in the bedroom. They didn't close enough so was woken up every morning at 9am but this is a minor flaw.
Fantastic location & only a 5-10 minute walk to the 7 or G trains.
Great spanish deli at the end of the street which did a great breakfast bagel for only $4.
All in all a magic vacation and a perfect hotel.
Thank you so much guys! We'll definitely be back!

I was really excited to stay here but left really disappointed. The staff were really unfriendly and the rooms were much smaller than in the pictures. The pull out couch was extremely uncomfortable and hard to sleep on. The worst part of this place is the expense. It is not in a nice area and theres hardly anything to do or see within walking distance. I could have stayed at a nice place in Manhattan for the same price. They say that they have a free shuttle service but it is always busy and we ended up cabbing everywhere which added another large expense. I do have to say that the shuttle driver is the only decent person working here though. Anyway, I guess you cannot win them all.

Dear worldtravel962,

Our entire staff has been trained to fulfill exceptional service for our guests. We constantly receive positive reviews, many of which praise our front desk staff for being kind and helpful. The smallest suite that we offer is measured at 550 sq. ft.; the size increases to 1,000 sq. ft. in our 2 bedroom suite. Our suites are large and more spacious than average New York City hotel rooms measuring at 325 sq. ft. Actual photos of these suites can be found on our website and throughout the web. We are proud to continually receive countless compliments on our well-appointed suites. The majority of our guests find our hotel reasonably priced for the amenities provided.

Greenpoint is a wonderful location for those who wish to remain close to Manhattan, without the constant commotion and noise of the city. We provide maps of the area upon check-in, with details of many local eateries, shops, etc. Our complimentary checker cab service provide pick-ups and drop-offs within a mile of the hotel. While there may be a wait for the driver to return, it is typically no more than 10 minutes. There are also subway stations and a ferry within walking distance from our property, which provide an inexpensive transportation into Manhattan and other parts of New York City.

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments.

Sincerely,

The Box House Hotel

Took a trip to NYC at the end of November with two friends. We all breathed a sigh of relief when we saw our loft suite. It was so nice! The bathroom was perfectly clean, the bedding was good, and the suite was nicely decorated with lots of artwork.

The Box House Hotel provides free taxi service within one mile of the hotel. We caught a ride to the Vernon-Jackson subway stop each morning and then took the subway into Manhattan. We called every night when we were ready to go back to the hotel, and then the taxi driver would meet us at the subway stop. It worked perfectly and we had a great experience at the Box House Hotel.

Huge (not just for new york), well appointed room, solid wifi etc.

My only (minor) complaint is that there was no maid service during the day. This wasn't a big deal and was spelled out explicitly in the info sheet when checking in, but I was a bit surprised, since this isn't lowest cost option in Brooklyn. Oddly, it did seem like someone came in and fixed up my towels, just not the bed etc.

The area has a fair number places close by for coffee etc. and the guide to local spots provided by the hotel is spot on.
