4.0/5 Very Good

Guests rated this property 4.3/5 for cleanliness.
Happy face icon
The hotel is in a lively location within a very short walk to the train. Street parking was easy to find, even at midnight on a Friday. The rooms are small but adequate. We stayed for 2 nights and it was fine for us. The industrial vibe is pretty cool. The bathrooms were clean and looked like the pictures. The only odd thing was that the room felt somewhat damp, even when we turn the temp on the a/c up. Not sure if it was just a humid weekend in the city or what.Otherwise, no issues. The hotel restaurant and bar looked cool, unfortunately we had too much else going on to stop in. Staff were friendly. It's pretty loud at night and sounded like people were still roaming the halls/partying at 4am, but we sort of expect this in the city.

Pretty expensive for a Hostel experience
I spent over $500 for a 2 night stay. No parking or valet, so I had to figure it out for myself. The Elevated train ran right by the window. No housekeeper during the stay due to COVID, which is ok, but when we called down to the main desk in the evening for towels for the next day, we were told that they didn’t have any. We ran out of toilet paper and we’re told we hade to go down to the main desk to pick it up. Also, found some hair on a towel and some unknown substance splashed on the bathroom wall. Reminded us of traveling in college and staying in hostels, but not in a good way.

Great location if you want to be in the hub of activity and close to the subway. Everything you want to eat or drink is just steps away. A bit noisy on nights where the outdoor bar is open, but it doesn’t go for too long. Overall, a solid choice in Brooklyn.

This has to be the worse hotel, I’m born and raised in Brooklyn, I now live in MD, came home to see my Mom, booked this hotel because of the proximity to my mothers home, I completely understand the neighborhood, however it seemed to me like a Gang hangout with prostitutes everywhere, horrible experience!!

Smoky smelly and wet experience
My wife and I we planned to stay of total of 4 nights in the hotel. The first night we arrived we check in and head to the bedroom the first thing the elevator smell like weed really strong and the bedroom smell like someone smoke for days in there ( even when we Request not a smock bedroom. All the bedding was wet to the touch including the pillows , we got a new room.... second room smell better but we had the same problem with the bedding being wet... we ended staying in different hotel and cancelling all the reservation. Front desk staff acted rude abut all the problems and really understanding that WE CANT NO SLEEP IN A WET BED!!!!
