“This hotel appears to be run by people who have never stayed in one”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

By definition the rooms are large, there is a fitness center and they do serve breakfast, They also did the laundry on the 4th floor where we were (bags strewn on the floor of the hall outside the laundry room). Of the advertised 500 sq ft in the suite, I believe 275 of those were an oversized kitchen area, that was not functional. The fitness center contained items that might have been in someone's home 20 years ago, except for one good machine and the breakfast spread was of the poorest quality possible, though clean.

Our son interned on Wall St this summer and lived in Williamsburg and we thought we would try to be close.

Thank you for staying with us and taking time to write a review.
I feel horrible that you felt that way. Wish I could do something to make it better.

Obviously the oversize kitchen was a no use for you, but we do have families
who stay longer and use the kitchen a lot more than others who are here for a night or two.
Perhaps a different type of suite could be a better fit.

I just hope you would give us another chance to make a better impression.

The staff is so efficient and friendly, it made our stay easy. The location is a short walk to the subway. The free morning shuttle lets you off in Times Square which is GREAT to sightsee. Our Grandson's wedding was a block away which was a reason to choose it. The breakfast was more than ample.

Room Tip: A suite gives you more room.

When my friend and I pulled up, we were a little nervous as this hotel is in the heart of the Orthodox Jewish community--a culture we have limited knowledge about. After we got over ourselves, we felt very comforted though b/c our room was equiped with everything we needed (including two sinks). We felt safe and our room was very comfortable. You're not going to get a million pillows on the bed, and the tv transmission is a bit fuzzy---still we felt right at home. I would definitely recommond this small hotel to people looking to score a deal when staying in Brooklyn-- the coolest place on earth (aside from Hong Kong).

This Hotel is a very quiet relaxing place to spend nights in while visiting New York.
The rooms are spic-and-span and spacious with extremely high ceilings. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms all include very useful amenities such as, kitchen, living area table and chairs, large fridge, and spacious closet. It is a very affordable place and definitely worth the money. They are also conveniently located near shops, restaurants and grocery stores, also not far from Manhattan. I would definitely recommend this Hotel to all!

Room Tip: 4th floor rooms have highest ceilings

The room is spacious and wifi is good. However the shower did not work properly. My main issue with this hotel is the inconvenience of the location. There are no nearby places to eat or buy food. So when you come here, be sure you already bought food outside or have already had dinner. Basically, it's just a place to sleep.

Large suite with high ceiling and kitchen. Two A/C units, clean and quiet. Free WiFi and very good continental breakfast, with excellent coffee. Reasonably priced, secure parking one block away.
Only minor gripe is TV with limited number of channels and most of them with poor picture quality.
Hotel provides free shuttle transportation to the Times Square in the morning. Nearest subway station is about 10 min walking distance. Close to Manhattan (just across the East River) and very reasonably priced for what it offers. Highly recommended...
Happy Traveler

Room Tip: Executive suite are cheaper than suite for 5, but rooms are identical. Only difference is roll-away...
