Enjoyed the hot water and coffee available at all times in the lobby. That was really nice in the mornings and evenings. Very close to 8th avenue subway (3min walk) so we took the N into Manhattan everyday of our vacation. If you enjoy Chinese street food there are evening street cart vendors selling kebabs. Tons of Chinese food options and fruit vendors down the street. Rooms were modern and super clean which we appreciated! Lots of shelving in the bathroom. Room was a little small but comfortable and cozy, I really just cared that it felt clean and new, which it did.

Positive: Very clean, very quiet, room had all we needed and the bathroom was actually quite a good size for what you find in Brooklyn. Many restaurants, convenience stores nearby, subway just a 3 minuto walk. I was great. Negative: Breaksfast is extremely limited.
