Great funky self catering rooms near to the Metro.Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: Less pricey than hotels in Manhattan but close to the Metro.
Cons: The area needs a bit of TLC but the hotel is a hidden gem.
Location: We spent 2 days in Manhattan doing the normal tourist things but on the third day stayed in Brooklyn and went to Coney Island then Prospect Park.
Lovely hotel with free taxis to take you to your Metro stop to get you into Manhattan. We are a family with a 7 year old and found the area mixed but safe and we walked to the Metro most days along the Pulanski bridge (2 mins from hotel). The rooms were clean and modern with all the basics provided for self catering. The hotel staff cannot do enough for you.

Stay herePosted Jul 28, 2014
Totally enjoyed my one week stay at The Box House. Large rooms, comfortable furniture and great staff. Greenpoint is a totally hip and safe neighborhood. The subway location is convenient, consider it an easy ten minute walk or better still the complimentary one mike radius taxi service.

Box House BrooklynPosted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Huge clean suite, nicely appointed kitchen make it perfect for families and groups. Décor was fun . Staff was ready and willing to help.
Cons: Would love a patio area.
This wonderful place is a little off the beaten path in but well worth it. We have family in the neighborhood and they were going to recommend to all visitors.Our room was huge by any city standards esp. NYC. Well appointed rooms, nice facilities and great staff. An easy walk to many Greenpoint dining spots and shopping in good weather. Easy access to subway and airport no huge traffic congestion issues.

BEST HOTEL IN BROOKLYN!Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: friendly staff spacious rooms excellent customer service location
Cons: Elevators would be awesome even though it's only 2 floors. When you have a lot of luggage, it could be a pain.
This was one of the best hotel experiences we've had! My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and were blown away by the laid back and friendly attitude of the staff. Nothing we needed seemed to be a problem and they went out of their way to make sure we had a positive experience. We travel a lot and so many hotels have staff who act as if you are annoying them if you ask for any little thing. This was a breath of fresh air. The style of the rooms/lofts made you feel like you were in a home rather than a hotel. I recommend getting a room with the terrace. Of course restaurants and shops are in walking distance and you can use their free car service to get to the subway or ferry. We are looking forward to our next time staying at the Box House Hotel!

Great Hotel close to SubwayPosted Jul 2, 2014
Cons: The washing machine leaves soap residue on clothes even when using liquid detergent! At $2 a load they should be cleaned daily.
Location: There is plenty of multicultural food shops all around.
I had a great experience there. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The hotel is quiet and almost secluded from the loud New York traffic. The only drawback I had was the 3:00pm check in time. I got there early and had to wait 2 hours for a room because nothing was ready. Usually not a deal breaker, but when you want to get an early start on site seeing it puts you way behind. They only have 2 washers and dryers there so you might have to wait on one. I will just end by saying I would love to stay at this hotel again! Very recommended!

Spacious, clean room, awesome staff!Posted Jun 24, 2014
Pros: I loved how friendly and knowledgeable the staff were - I have never been to New York before, but they made it easy for us to get around!
We recently stayed at the Box House for our wedding & honeymoon trip to New York - it was nothing short of fantastic! The people working the desk/door/car service were so helpful and so friendly! Our room was everything we had hoped for (and more!), we were within walking distance of two different subway lines, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. - basically everything we needed!

Oh my...this hotel is amazing! Among all of my travels around the world this is my most favorite hotel. The staff was friendly and very helpful. If you are going to New York City this is an excellent place to lay your head to rest. We found several great restaurants in Brooklyn and were comfortable walking the streets at night. The taxi service is great to go to local restaurants or to the metro. You must stay and experience the Box House!
