                                    Service was very good and hotel is immaculate. Handy to the subway system.

                                    Location is a bit run down.

                                    The hotel is clean and simple, the breakfast is simple but has very limited choices

                                    The location is so bad. The train in front of the hotel is so noisy.

                                    Hotel is comfy and clean. Front desk staff is friendly and makes me feel safe, knowing that there is a doorman in addition to the front desk staff. Convenient location if using lirr train station.

                                    Cleopatra was very nice. The shower plug thing broke in the room and she came up and fixed it even though I told her we could wait for maintenance to fix it the next day.

                                    I went in about a week before to check it out and some man who said he was the manager called me "dude" when I asked him to please make sure to put us in a room in the back away from the train and he apparently got annoyed since I asked him a second time when he did not respond to me the first time. Then there were nasty hairs in the bathroom when we got there and our sheets and towels were not changed out during our 5 nights there and I did not want to say anything while we were there because I was afraid of the "manager" retaliating or trying to do something so I kept my mouth shut.

                                    It was convenient.

                                    We did not like the fact that they changed the towels on a daily basis. Although this felt wonderful, we thought (based on the note in the room) that this would not be done to save the environment.

                                    The hotel exeeded my expectations. It's a 3 star property but it was more like 4. The rooms were not huge but the bed was comfortable and clean. It had good temperature control facilities, a fridge not full of mini bar and a big TV with plenty of channels. The price was very good for New York and the hotel seems pretty modern. Plus, you get to experience a side o0f New York you would not see if you stayed in Manhattan like most people do. I would stay again for sure.

                                    We only got 2 free bottles of water on our first night. It would have been nice to get a new pair each day.

                                    It was quite convenient to where I was doing business, and was quite surprised at the quality and cleanliness of the rooms, considering the work being done in that area (elevated subway).

                                    Off-street parking at the property was scarce, and unattainable at the time of my check in (9pm)

                                    The room is clean and comfortable. The breakfast is simple and not varied. The staff is just so so. Note that hotel is located in Brooklyn. We chose this hotel because of price, because Manhattan is unreasonably expensive. The Subway station is about 6 min by walk. Wall street is about 15 min, Time square is about 25 - 30 min by Subway.

                                    Deposit was not accepted by cash. We had to use our debit card, all charges (for all nights) were blocked on the card, and it was released 2 weeks (!) after check-out. We know the hotel released it at time of check-out, and it is because of foreign bank, but cash should have been accepted in order to avoid inconveniences.

                                    1. It is a very good location for international travellers coming in from jfk. 2. It has all the facilities I need -- wifi internet, iron & ironing board, coffee make. 3. Friendly reception staff.

                                    Excellent, so confortable and clean room; helpfull and friendly staff ; internet conection and business center; a good breakfast; close subway (just 5 minutes walk). If necessary, certainly I will stay there again.

                                    The location is at Brooklyn and the neighbourhood is unpleasant, however, is safe and we don`t have problems.

                                    The hotel is perfect.

                                    The location is realy bad and scary especially at night.

                                    No-one is going to be especially excited about the location of the hotel - it's area of Brooklyn and its closeness to the highway and the overhead rail track. However, that's the only negative about this hotel. It was fantastic value for money, incredibly clean and well serviced, the staff couldn't have been more helpful, and the rooms are a decent size and very well equipped. You have a microwave, flatscreen tv, free internet, ironing facilities, coffee-maker, excellent air conditioning - nothing is omitted. Breakfast is quite spartan - but it is free. I would definitely stay again.

                                    pleasant new rooms, close to train to jfk, and subway to manhattan.

                                    They offer two computers for internetaccess and they are veeeeery slow. As in many american hotels, they can improve in ecological way polystyreen cups and plates are unnecessary, same for changing towels everyday.

                                    Great inside, outstanding service. All staff is polite and friendly, do their best to accommodate you! Quick walk to the subway station.

                                    Subway route is by the hotel, very loud. Did not feel comfortable in the area. not much space in the double room.
