Hotel of Last ResortPosted 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 bathroomPosted 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 subwayPosted 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 hotelPosted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Very Private definitely a place for a person or a couple to have "Me Time/Us Time"
Cons: ROOM SIZES PARKING
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 CleanPosted 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 pricePosted 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 WeddingPosted 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.

Getting better.Posted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: It's convenient to the subway which takes you to Barclays Center (or you can even walk there), or into Manhattan.
Cons: Some of the bedding could be better.
Location: It's convenient to Barclays Center, hip Park Slope area and subway that takes you to Atlantic Terminal, which gets you trains into Manhattan or L.I.
I've stayed at this hotel plenty of times over the last 6 months so I'm used to the "quirks" of this place. The staff for the most part, do what they can to make your stay a pleasant one. The rooms are small (hence the term, "boutique hotel"), but if you are only looking for a place to lay your head for the night, you could do a lot worse. The key is knowing what floors to choose. I've found that the higher floors with low numbers (i.e. 306, 303, etc) have the better room setup.

Updated, clean hotel close to the Barclays centerPosted Jul 1, 2014
When I first walked into the room and walked strait into a bed, the other reviewers weren't kidding when try said the rooms were tiny! But no reason to judge for a small room. It was extremely clean and comfortable. Very nice staff. Price is great for an area and getting a place so close to the Barclays center. Wouldn't definitely recommend!
