I visit NYC, Brooklyn for a 2week family break in May 2014 and the NU hotel was perfect in every way, from the service quality from all staff (5 stars) and cleanliness of our room (Outstanding). The hotel has an excellent gym facility; the décor throughout the hotel is modern with a unique personal twist. The continental breakfast was amazing, along with the free Wi-Fi service available throughout the property. My family and I are planning our next trip in January 2015 and NU hotel is the only place we will stay.

I had an extremely fantastic honeymoon at Nu Hotel Brooklyn earlier this year. Everything about this hotel is great. It has a unique artistic decor that really set the tone upon entry to the lobby and same can be said about the room. I was amazed by the beautiful decor and how well kept everything was. All modern styled furniture and bathroom fixtures and fresh linens provided by housekeeping everyday and they were always prompt. I was especially taken away by the high brand liquors provided in the mini bar in the room.The staff were also exceptional. Check in was quick and smooth and and they were all so welcoming. Before we knew it we were off to our room.

The hotel is surrounded by lots of great restaurants so you never have to worry about finding good places to eat. It is located outside the hustle of the city, yet so close to everything it makes getting around to various places for sight seeing very easy. We were able to hop over to the Brooklyn Bridge for some great pictures and back at our hotel room in minutes.

If you should ever be looking for a great place to stay in New York that's quiet, comfortable, accessible to the city and has efficient and friendly staff, then the Nu Hotel Brooklyn is a must go for you. You will never find a reason to regret it.

I stayed here for business and I absolutely enjoyed my stay. Room was great, an excellent selection in the minibar, staff was great and the location is central. I also used their fitness center which was modern and had everything that I needed for a full workout. I had them do my laundry through a local provider in Brooklyn which did a great job and the staff took care of delivery. I'll definitely be staying here in the future.

Just stayed a night at the Nu Hotel, which I enjoyed. I always find it refreshing to stay in non large chain hotels and the Nu Hotel fit the bill perfectly. Yes, it's hip and it also provides a friendly, more intimate, comfortable stay. The breakfast provided in the morning was great for a continental breakfast... more than just pastries. Fruit, hard boiled eggs, yogurt and granola bars were also included. Liked the little extra touches like the free bikes and chalkboard wall in the bathroom.

Im a DJ and was never a fan of Brooklyn. Last week i happened to be in the area and wanted a hotel to say at. I called and was told the rate. First off I was like, That was too high for the area but when i got there i could see that my money was going to be well spent.

The lobby was somewhat small but it gives the feeling of being in a living room. The MUSIC was just rite and coming from a DJ that says alot.

The guy who checked me in made me feel as if we knew each other from back in high school, chatted a little about music, whats in the area and what was included.

The room was nothing like the small ones that i am used to paying alot more in the city for and was very comfortable.

Im not a breakfast person, but at check out i could see everyone enjoying it.

Brooklyn for me next time about.

Room Tip: Bigger rooms than what you would get in the city (Manhattan)

My parent and i went here for a short stay just two nights but over that short time the staff there made us feel like we were at home. All the right places to go to eat and do shopping.

The rooms were also lovely and felt so comfortable. Wish we could have taken that bed home. lol.

So my younger sister got married over the weekend and we all staid at this hotel.
We had a big group and everyone was treated like they were the ones getting married.

The rooms are so comfortable and they have such a friendly staff.

One down side to being in this area is that there arnt much night life with the exceptions of bars and restaurant in the are. For this you would have to head into the city.(Manhattan)

Over all a great stay. We know where we will be staying when we are in Brooklyn.

Room Tip: There is a 24.hrs Gym so travel with your gym items
