Very good 8.0
Good hotel
The location of the hotel is pretty ok. There are 2 metro stations nearby with direct trains to Manhattan. We felt safe walking around even at night. There are lots of asian restaurants and fast foods around. The staff was very friendly. The room nice and clean with comfy bed and big bathroom. The breakfast was quite poor, no warm food.

Clean hotel in middle of Chinese district
This newly built hotel was clean, comfy beds and the added bonus of a cold breakfast every morning. People on reception were very friendly and helpful. Located close to a subway station. It is in the middle of the Chinese district and we found the surrounding area badly in need of a tidy-up but this is not the hotel's fault.

Except the location everything was amazing

Affordable find with easy access to Manhattan
This is a great little hotel, that is affordable and convenient for the subway direct to Manhattan. Rooms are clean and functional. Breakfast is simple but perfect for a quick bite before a busy day and nice touch to have tea and coffee available all day. The local area is a little run down but we had no issues. I would stay here again.
Claire, gb2 night trip with friends
Fair 4.0
It said free parking but when you get there , there is no parking , the rooms are small not comfortable and no breakfast and no small refrigerator in the room , we have stayed at other hotels for the same price and we get a bigger room comfortable and breakfast in the morning and a small refrigerator

Good 6.0
Poor customer service
The hotel clerk was not customer service oriented at all. Was not able to provide any 800 phone number or allow to use the free desktop computer available or assistance with our booking issue. Very cold customer service would only provide limited customer service. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone!

Nice stay in Brooklyn

Leesa, us3 night family trip
Very good 8.0
The hotel was very clean! Bed was comfortable. Check-in and checkout was quick and painless, and the staff was nice and helpful. The surrounding area wasn't very nice, but we were just staying for the night. Overall, for the price, it was worth it!
