Recent guest reviews

I booked this hotel last minute due to a crazy housing issue. Hotel was easy to find, front desk staff is welcoming & helpful. Free breakfast at the nearby cafe was a nice bonus. Walls are super thin so you'll be able to hear EVERYTHING your neighbors or anyone in the hallway is doing. Maybe best for guests who aren't looking for a serene environment :) Otherwise good accommodation near Barclays/ downtown BK for the price.

After traveling 12+ hours on greyhound, I finally arrived in Brooklyn, NY! The hotel is minutes from the bus station so I got a chance to explore Brooklyn more. The hotel is nice and quaint comfortable bed, nice shower and clean rooms. Only down side is the lighting in the bathroom could be better and there is basically no watchable channels on the Direct TV, I couldn't even find the news to see what the weather was going to be like. But those are minor complaints. I chose this hotel mainly because of it's location. I was in town for the Nicki Minaj concert at the Barclay's Center, which is in walking distance from the hotel. The concert was amazing and Brooklyn was electrifying. Overall the concert was amazing and my hotel stay was nice.

The price is very reasonable and the location is ok. The room is tiny and you will hear all the sounds of hallways.

I enjoyed my stay in the tiny room for one... The free breakfast around the corner was great! Convenient park available right on the street and I was close to many day activities in like the Botanical Gardens and Brooklyn Museum.

Very nice hotel, small room But very clean and cozy, big bath compare to the room size. Conveniently located near Union st. Metro or if you want to walk a little more is just 10 minutes from Atlantic avenue station that is a main hub for many metro routes. Perfect for a quick visit to the city.

clean safe...just dont expect any frills...convenient to subways...location is near some fine brooklyn dining...

Clean hotel. Very thin walls could hear everyone else who was staying there.

the staff was friendly and helpful. its located pretty close to the subway station. the room was very small but had a comfortable bed and large clean bathroom. the walls are very thin so you can hear people coming and going but it wasn't an issue for me. i was able to sleep well.

Great for location and price. Close to the train and breakfast discounts.

Nice place, however you have to walk to the diner around the corner for the complimentary breakfast. Rooms are also very small

Rooms are too small like a closetneed to restaurant built inside

It was clean and nice nothing special room was very small but is enough for only two people

The hotel was very clean and the location is excellent

-The building was in a great location...free breakfast at a local restaurant was good. -The rooms however all only good for one person...barely. -parking was a bit tricky as well. -no smoking or drinking on the rooftop sucked too the staff was very nice.

The hotel was great for a pit stop. It was clean, and in a safe area. Breakfast was way better than average.

Although the hotel was clean, the bedroom with two beds barely had room to walk in. I felt as though I was staying in a dorm room. Too much furniture for a closet sized-room. The bathroom (which was clean and nice) was almost bigger than the room itself.

I would never stay at this hotel again. The breakfast at the cafe down the street was the best part of the stay.

The staff was very helpful with the limited resources . Would definitely stay again.

The street the hotel is in isn't the prettiest, but just one block over is 5th avenue and that's where all the good stuff is! I saw from the pictures that the room was going to be small, but I was just needing the room for a few nights! But the room was clean and the bed was comfortable! The only complaints I have about the room are the furniture was placed in a strange way and the heater was very loud and had a high pitched squeal when the heat was on. Example: the night stand couldn't be opened because the wardrobe was in the way. The included breakfast was served by a diner 2 blocks away. They were very friendly and the food was excellent! I had a corner room on the second floor, 201 so room 200 was against my wall with the tv. The wall must have been very thin because I could hear the tv in room 200 somewhat. The doors to the stairwell and room doors slammed very loudly if you weren't careful to close them gently. Location is pretty great because there is an R train station 2 blocks away, or a multiple train stop about half a mile away at Atlantic Ave!

Room was small but clean. Bathroom had a nice hot shower. Was in Brooklyn on business and hotel was convienient to area I needed to be.
