Kings Hotel Brooklyn New YorkPosted Dec 9, 2010 on Hotels.com
The great thing about this hotel is that it was one block from the subway station. It was surrounded by day businesses and was a little difficult to spot coming down the street. It seemed to be very much a local hotel catering to families of those who live in the area. We were looking for a reasonable rate hotel for a quick 2 night stay to attend our daughters birthday party in Brooklyn. It was clean enough although we had a paper bath mat which seemed kind of odd to us. The remote control for the room was broken and the lamp shade near the bed had no finial which sent it flying if it was bumped. There were no hangers in the closet. The bed were just ok. There was a sheet and a bedspread, no blankets and nothing extra in the closet. The flooring both in the hotel corridor and the room was all tile. It was quite noisy when other guests entered the hotel at all hours of the night. We woke up several times as groups got off of the elevator and were talking loudly and profanely. We even had the police arrive at 5:00 am to invesitigate a domestic violence problem which was going on in the hallway at the door of the room next to ours. Everything echoed due to having no carpet to muffle sound. We talked to the desk in the morning and they assured us we would have no problems on our floor the second night and to be sure and tell them if we did. They were helpful to us whenever we talked to them during our stay. There is one elevator up and it is right next to the main desk, who's attendant could absolutely have reminded loud guests that there would be others sleeping as they came in the front door. Unfortunately I would not recommend this hotel to my friends or relatives. I would encourage them to pay a little more and choose another hotel.

Kings Hotel BrooklynPosted Nov 19, 2010 on Hotels.com
We found the hotel to be in line with the reviews we had read -- both positive and negative. The hotel is very clean, an economical way to stay in and around NYC. The neighborhood seems safe, largely moderate-income residential with some light industry (auto repair shops, etc). Not for tourists who wanna roll out of bed and into Times Sq, but we're not "tourists" in that sense. There are two nearby subway stations -- the 9th Ave station (D line) is about 1.5 blocks away but has fewer trains than the 36th St/4th Ave subway (R and N lines, and is a pleasant, 10 minute walk from the hotel, but up and over a good sized hill in either direction). A very pleasant 15-20 min walk to Park Slope. Walls are indeed VERY thin! But overall it was a terrific find of a hotel -- esp given that once we're in NY, we're out and about all day and really just needed a safe, clean place to sleep! I would definitely stay there again, and I would recommend it to friends. Would not recommend it to my elderly parents who might have issues with the walk to/from the further subway station.

Ok.. not goodPosted Nov 10, 2010
The parking garage was nice because it was free and I didnt want to park on the road because it wasnt the nicest area. The room was adequate in size and cleanliness. The tv was hard to operate and it was nothing special. My biggest complaint is that there is no sound proofing at all. I could hear everying from the hallway. And the cleaning people were waking me up all morning long yelling at each other and different laungauges. It was very annoying because i had anticipated on a nice long sleep. overall i wouldnt stay there again.

Good "economy" hotelPosted Nov 5, 2010
If you are somewhat familiar with NYC and do not mind staying in Brooklyn, I would highly recommend this hotel. Staff was friendly; room was clean; snacks and necessities at the bodega on the corner and subway stop was super close. It can take up to 45 minutes one way on the subway to get into the city--including waiting for trains. It was worth the money we saved.

Small and loud but affordablePosted Nov 2, 2010 on Hotels.com
Location: Prior to this trip, I stayed at the Pan American in Queens. Not the best room but the location is better in terms of options in the neighborhood and i just need a basic place to shower and sleep when I travel.
The rooms are tiny, but they are made from quite nice materials considering the price per night. As reported, it was very easy to hear people in the hallway but I just needed an affordable, clean, place to sleep near a subway station and this was just that so I'm not complaining. Very few parking stalls in a tight garage, but I got one and then took the trains around the city so again, no complaints from me.

Clean, no frillsPosted Jul 29, 2010 on Hotels.com
Pros: My room was very clean and in good condition. There is a metro stop a block away. The hotel has secure parking. Cons: The neighborhood is light industrial. It felt safe, but had nothing much of interest. It took a subway ride of modest length to get anywhere interesting (or even to find a decent cup of coffee). The room was a little small and very basic.

The Kind Hotel is a nice property. The place was very clean and I was even able to take advantage of the limited indoor parking which was pretty cool for the New York City area. It is in a somewhat perculiar location, but the surronding area in China Town is interesting and felt safe to me. Metro train also close by. Would definitely stay there again for the price.

No problemsPosted Apr 21, 2010
The Hotel is rather tucked away in a side street but is close to the subway and provided all that was required in a economical but comfortable stay in New York.
