I stayed at the Nu Hotel from August 11-13 2010 and had a great time! Before booking the hotel I called and spoke to Gary who was very pleasant and gave me all the info about the hotel plus directions for getting to the hotel from JFK airport. Gary was there when I arrived and made me feel welcomed from the start. I told the staff I was not used to all the city noise outside and they placed me in a room located on an upper floor facing the courtyard instead of the busy street that runs in front of the hotel. The decor is very contemporary with cork floors and modern furnishings and art. The beds were very comfortable. Everyone at this hotel went out of their way to make my stay as enjoyable as possible. I already mentioned Gary but also want to thank Bernard who went beyond the call of duty when I showed up for breakfast a few minutes after 10 one morning to make sure I got bagels, cereal, juice and yogurt to start my day. Dan who worked the night shift was pleasant and helpful as was Sandina who was working the front desk the morning of my departure. Even housekeeping staff went out of their way to show me gracious hospitality by taking my ice bucket down to the lobby to fill it and return it to my room and then refusing to accept a tip for their efforts! The hotel also has a gym located in the basement which is a bit nicer then the typical hotel fitness room. The hotel's location in Brooklyn is within walking distance of many restaurants and a couple of subway stations where you can board a train and travel most anywhere in the New York City Metro. When I am in NYC again and need lodging I will certainly return to the Nu Hotel Brooklyn!
