Hotel of Last Resort

Posted Oct 14, 2014
When we arrived they told us that a pipe broke in our room and that they only had one room left. The room was so small we could barely fit. It reminded me of staying in a youth hostel.

Like a hostel with a private bathroom

Posted Sep 9, 2014
Pros: The location and cleanliness
Cons: The use of space in the room and the amenities should be as advertised
Location: Location in Gowanus is great and the free breakfast at the Union Cafe is excellent but don't forget that the tip isn't included
The room was tiny but clean. The bed was advertised as queensize but it was an uncomfortable double. It was like staying in a Manhattan YMCA with better decor and a private bathroom. There is barely enough room for suitcases beside the bed and nowhere to work on a laptop in the room or anywhere else in the hotel. No business center or common area no fridge no microwave no phone the TV is at right angles to the bed. There is a large armoire taking up space that could have been much better used for a chair and desk. The staff at the "front desk" (which was really a tiny podium) was robotic and didn't seen at all concerned if we liked our experience at the hotel. The neighborhood is great with stores and restaurants within an easy walk and open all night. We stayed 2 nights and moved to the Sleep Inn in Sunset Park which is a few stops away on the subway but a much nicer hotel for nearly the same price.

Great value and close to the subway

Posted Jul 21, 2014
The Union Hotel happened to be directly across the street from where I needed to be, so I chose it based on location. The value was superb, and the location was incredibly quiet. The room was very small, but average by NYC standards. Everything worked well in the room and the complimentary breakfast at a diner a couple blocks away (at the subway station) was superb!

Great POD hotel

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Very Private definitely a place for a person or a couple to have "Me Time/Us Time"
Location: Very convientant to mass transit to get to attractions of NYC
The rooms are small but cozy. I believe hotel should state that in description. Bathroom was MARVELOUS, but hotel could have made them a little smaller to increase room size. Floors 4 and above give you great view of NYC skyline if assigned room in alcove of hotel.Breakfast voucher to local diner was AWESOME. I WOULD STAY HERE ANYTIME!!!

Cozy, Comfortable and Clean

Posted Jul 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
This is a very small space, but extremely cozy, comfortable and clean. Check in was a breeze and the host was kind. Free breakfast at a nearby dinner was included in the price. A wonderful getaway for two or maybe three. Nice air conditioning, wonderful sheets and comforter, and cable television. Do not dismiss this one.

Great place for the price

Posted Jul 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
Well located near 5th Avenue (3block walk) and easy to get to. Room was sparse but comfortable and bathroom was stylish. Had arrangement for breakfast at nearby diner. Great place with super servers. Parking is on street, read the signs as cleaning occurs in middle of the night. A great Brooklyn experience.

Weekend Wedding

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Location: Lots to do in the area, close to NYC, and Flatbush...
Reasonable rates for the weekend. the room was small but very clean. Only thing I would change would be better lighting in the bath, and i did not see a vending or ice machine.
