    What a fab hotel. Staff could not have been more helpful. Location is no issue at all - 8 min walk to subway one stop into manhattan. Free taxi rides in local area with a couple of really good guys doing the driving. Room was cleaned and fresh towels given everyday which we were surprised and pleased by. Seriously enjoyed our stay for 7 nights and would definitely stay here again - couldn't fault it.

    Milk & Roses round the corner perfect for breakfast and plenty of deli stores to pick up bits and pieces for nibbles in your fully operational kitchen.

    Can't recommend highly enough - would definitely tell anyone going to new york to stay here - love love love!!!

    The hotel itself is very comfortable with interesting furnishings, but the staff really impressed us with their outstanding service. There was a little confusion when we checked in, and everyone there went out of their way to ensure that the problem the confusion was quickly resolved so that my family and I were comfortable. I cannot thank the staff enough for their attention to us - they had a very personal touch that made our stay great.

    The hotel itself is furnished in an interesting and unique style, and the rooms are far more comfortable than a standard hotel. While the neighborhood can best be described as "quiet," there are a few bars and restaurants within walking distance, and the nearest subway is only one stop from Grand Central.

    I would highly recommend this hotel.

    This place took us completely by surprise! Have you ever looked at photos on the net of a Motel you have booked and then when you checked in realised that they were so untrue? Well this IS SO NOT the case with The Box House Hotel. The photos of the interior of this hotel were quirky, trendy and attractive, when I booked the place thru 'Wotif.com' and guess what! In real life, this Hotel was even BETTER!
    Outside is industrial and ordinary but once inside, The Box House Hotel becomes a haven of comfort, privacy and pure Hipsterness!
    Where to start.....well the ceilings are very very high giving the rooms a 'loft' feel about them. They even still have exposed pipes which are now painted a funky bright fire engine red colour.
    Everything inside is modern without losing any nostalgia for what this warehousey type building use to be.
    All wall art and table decorations have been carefully selected to give a great contemporary edge to this funky apartment.
    The hallway outside has at almost every front door, a narrow table which holds a
    piece of art in the form of a sculpture captured underneath a glass dome resembling a cheese dome.
    Free wifi is a welcome bonus and friendly staff. This place is truly a hidden gem. If we hadn't found it on Wotif, we never would have. Two gorgeous retro taxis remain permanently parked out the front and two train stations are within close walking distance. Also close by are a number of restaurants, bars and cafés. And for breakfast, if you walk over the Pulaski Bridge you will discover Brickston Bagel shop, a popular place for Bagels. Although the food is delicious, the staff are a little bit miserable.

    Our first trip to Brooklyn, and research pre booking suggested The Box House as a good choice, so we booked up. We have no regrets. It's a beautiful place, aesthetically pleasing, spotlessly clean, great desk staff, and the shuttle service is very handy, too. We had a standard suite and it was gorgeous, so much space, with everything we needed. Greenpoint itself was great, some lovely places to eat right there (Coffee Friends, Eagle Trading, The Karcsma, Ovenly, Milk & Roses, Paulie Gees - all well priced and delicious), Williamsburg a short ride away but easily walkable, and the chaos of Manhattan just a few subway stops away.

    Greenpoint is an area that will undoubtedly change in the next few years, and become probably an extension of Williamsburg. The Box House deserve the custom that this growth will bring. Thoroughly recommended.
