I had a very short stay for just a few hours on a lay over business trip. It was quiet and peaceful after having a quick breakfast I fell out, almost missing my appointment. Would recommend if you don't need the hassle of the city.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a King Sized Bed the others are very small not big enough for a couple or a big a...

Adorable. Warm and welcoming staff. Clean as a whistle. Very comfortable beds. Love the free cookies, coffee and tea in the lobby. Excellent complimentary breakfast including real fresh fruit. Sliced avocados and tomatoes were a lovely surprise. Efficient at check out and car was ready at the precise time I requested. My new home in Brooklyn.

Just spent a weekend at the Condor. The staff--especially Mo, made the stay fabulous. Mo was so helpful with printing out directions and boarding passes and answering our endless questions about the area. The room was immaculate and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Loved the special touches in the room and bathroom. Will definitely stay there again!

We tried Condor as an alternative to a brand-name hotel and were delighted. It is chic and well-appointed and has both a delightful lounge and garden sitting area. The room was very comfortable and very nice and very clean.

The neighborhood was great--you rarely get to spend time inside a hassidic neighborhood, so it was like a trip abroad. It also meant that the neighborhood was very safe.

The staff was eager to please. In particular, Mo at the front desk gave us both insights into the neighborhood, getting around the city, and helped us in the hotel.

While we could have parked on the street, the availability of secure parking across the street was great, especially with a car loaded with luggage. Few hotels in the area offer secure parking like this.

The continental breakfast was well above average.

I hope that the price of a queen room can be the same as a twin room, that almost put us off when we were booking. But our king room turned out to be a fine room.

Having never stayed in Brooklyn before, we weren't sure what to expect. But the Condor Hotel was excellent -- clean, comfortable, convenient. An added plus was secure parking since we were moving our son to his new apartment nearby and had a car and a van. The young woman at the front desk when we checked in, I think her name was Mo (?), was very pleasant and extremely helpful. We will definitely stay there again!

We stayed at the Condor for two nights over Memorial Day weekend. We didn't know much about the area and it wasn't terribly promising when we arrived, as it is in a mixed residential/industrial area and everything was shuttered on a Saturday evening. But the hotel had parking (reasonably priced) and it turned out to be very easy to navigate Brooklyn by car or public transportation. The hotel itself was really quite lovely: nice rooms that were both clean and comfortable. Its a small hotel so not a big lobby, but they have created a pretty little reading room and a nice garden in the back -- really an oasis in busy Brooklyn. The staff are all very nice. They gave us an umbrella when we didn't have one on a rainy day and were just terribly helpful when it came to advice, directions etc. We had one minor incident -- our six year old son banged into a sharp edge on the lobby -- but they couldn't have been more helpful in getting him (who had a cut that looked much worse than it was) squared away and couldn't have been more solicitous about him. Great value, lovely hotel, nice staff -- when we go back to Brooklyn, we'll definitely stay there again.

My wife and I wanted to experience Brooklyn and visit some friends in Williamsburg, and so we left our downtown Boston home for a few days. We chose the Condor because of the price of the rooms on the website (half the cost of hotels to the north) and the proximity of the hotel to hipster-land (about 1 to 1.5 miles north). We were not familiar with the orthodox Jewish communities of Brooklyn, but since this hotel is very nearby to one, we got to learn firsthand!
John at the front desk was especially helpful in finding us a room when we checked in an hour or two early. The room and bathroom were very nice, the bed comfortable (though my wife said she didn't like the sheets or pillows), the A/C loud but effective, the TV small, the internet intermittent (couldn't watch an Amazon show at night), and the showerhead and water pressure excellent.
The breakfast is very nicely done each morning -- the spread included hard-boiled eggs, sliced fruits, bagels, croissants, waffles, yogurts, coffee, teas, juices, and a griddle for making cheese sandwiches.
If you look on websites that provide crime-related maps, you'll see that this hotel is actually in a very safe part of town. It may not look like that to you in person, however. We felt very safe walking north (and east to the G line) during the day due to the high traffic of families, but we always took a cab back at night since it was less than $10 from other parts of Williamsburg. As he was dropping us off one night, one of our cabbies literally said, "Wow, this street is like something out of Nightmare on Elm Street." I assume that had to do with the razor wire, graffiti, and other industrial-themed accents all along the street.
If you're not familiar with the area, you may want to use Google Maps Street view or something similar to check it out beforehand. Location aside, my wife and I both thought that the Condor is definitely doing things right when it comes to an affordable and upscale experience. We were pleasantly surprised and overall quite satisfied.

Room Tip: I'd avoid the first-floor rooms located right at the entrance.
