Simply said...DO NOT STAY HERE. Terrible customer service and too many unsafe issues. Just to name a few, yet very concerning issues, the hotel didn’t provide hand soap in the bathroom during a global pandemic, they refuse to answer their phone for guest services, and last but not least they give you rooms with broken balcony doors. Don’t waste your time and money staying in this location.

Great location. On street parking available. Staff was very friendly. But the place suffers from shoddy workmanship. Thermostats that don’t work, blowing really hot air

,They over charged me by $100 so now I have to call to try to correct the overpayment. I did not receive a receipt either.

Nice hotel close to our son’s girlfriend’s place. Comfortable and smells good! Towels are big and soft! Bathroom and bed comfortable and clean. However the room could have been a bit cleaner as there was dust under refrigerator and a pine resin-like stickiness on one bedside table. Details are important. Next time we will ask for a room facing away from street as the sanitation pickup was loud and prolonged at about 3 a.m. Sorry no one, including a hotel worker who moved big trash bins in front of our room, who I watched from balcony later that morning, could not pick up a big pile of trash on street from sanitation workers when emptying dumpsters. Brooklyn in general has no one to pick up trash on streets on weekends which is very noticeable to this visitor. Otherwise I will stay at the hotel and recommend it, with those caveats, again.

Deceptive descriptions

Pros: Lovely man at reception.
Cons: Could be given a little lift with better music outside, better quality drinks and making coffee available.
Location: The location is great actually, probably the best thing about the hotel.
It felt like more of a cheap San Antonio package hotel in Ibiza than a funky boutique hotel in Williamsburg. Terrible music playing by the chlorinated pool, and playing all night outside our window, which we left open because the room felt so claustrophobic. The floor was sticky and unclean and a very small room considering the price tag. Glad I only paid $220 for it !

Brooklyn + outdoor pool w/ bar = awesome

Pros: See above.
Cons: See above.
Location: Restaurants, park, bars, metro, shopping. Perfect location.
I live an hour-and-a-half from NYC and wanted a one-night getaway that enabled me to both be in the city/Brooklyn and lie next to an outdoor pool while grading papers. It was perfect. Room was great. Pool area was great. Staff was super-friendly and even gave me a free drink (it was the first day this season that the pool was open so they were a bit under-staffed and they thought they took too long with my order, which I didn't even notice). Rooftop bar *not* so great, but could have been an off day. Location is perfect. I will be on the lookout for deals to go back.

Good hotel, great location

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Great location near Bedford Ave. The hotel was comfortable, the staff were helpful. The rooms are nicely designed, though for some things it takes priority over practicality. The bed was too soft and not comfortable. Wonderful shower.
