Hotel RL Brooklyn

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is the best hotel in the area. They have a bar off the lobby and host different types of events. One particular night i was there for karaoke and ended up encouraging others to sing as well. I really enjoyed myself. The staff is always pleasant and professional. The only thing i dislike is if the bartender doesn't come in, the bar itself is closed for alcohol. However, i do understand. RL is still my first choice whenever I'm visiting Brooklyn!

First time in Brooklyn and we choose RL. Very Happy with the location as my husband and I felt as if we totally immersed ourselves in the area. The vibe was very appealing. Restaurants, quaint shops we just loved the area. Clean rooms a bit small, not much of a view but with the elevated train right in front of the hotel we did not hear the train which was a plus. No blow dryer in the room which should be a standard item. Had to ask at front desk and they do have them. All in all I would stay there again.

This is my second time staying here and I must say I was impressed both times! The rooms are clean and spacious, there-is cable in the room which is great! Allyhough brar s rain station it doesn’t affect my sleep at all

I loved it so comfortable I will be back as soon as possible

Hotel and staff were fine. Location wasn't quite what I was expecting but overall it was good stay.

Good price. Right on the J train. Clean room. Comfortable bed. Love the neighborhood. Lighting options in the rooms are slim (no bedside lights). Only one elevator that housekeeping and maintenance share with guests. Right next to subway tracks but somehow noise is minimal (did not wake me up).

Great location, love the ambiance, and the way the room was situated.

Close to the J train which takes you to lower Manhattan. Horrible are, extremely bad area. It’s the nicest building in the block. Area needs a lot of work!

Super newly renovated hotel. I did not care for the area as there was not many restaurants close by.

Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff throughout my stay. Fantastic location right in the middle of bustling BedStuy and Bushwick, and super close to heaps of trains. Super cool rooms, with very comfortable beds and a hip design. Double glazing on the windows made it one of the quietest stays I’ve had in Brooklyn. I’d highly recommend this place to anyone.

Overall a nice room at a convenient location a block from the subway station that can take you to Manhattan or JFK. The boutique hotel offers small rooms, typical of NYC, but most usual amenities including an ironing board. Very, very clean. Comfortable bed with luxurious pillows and linens. The hotel is going for a hip vibe, some of the room reminds me of a college dorm room. To save space there are no dressers, but storage boxes on a high shelf. There is no chair but only a wooden bench that can also be used as a suitcase stand. Lack of a chair and a very small table can make it difficult if you want to do some work on a laptop. There is a very nice walk-in glass shower, but strangely, one of the glass walls is exposed to the main room outside the bathroom. That would be awkward if unrelated people share the room (there was a second single bed). Helpful, friendly staff, answered questions cheerfully. Even the maid sounded sincere when asking if all is OK.

I overall enjoyed my experience. The bathrooms are a little awkward. I wish there was more counter space for my things while getting ready.

The shower situation was very weird. I don't want to look at my friends shower!

I was disappointed.. stuff was good. Deco, horrible.

We had a great stay. We did get a room on the second floor facing the train tracks. To us the train just sounded like a quiet thunderstorm when it would roll past. The rooms where very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay there.

Nice staff cozy room and great location. I would come again just for the bed.

Got a room on the 2nd floor. Nice room. Unfortunately it was by the stairs. All night no sleep. It was easier for the guests to use the stairs rather than thr elevator. That door kept opening and slamming closed all night long.
