I love that this hotel was vegan friendly. Updated rooms. Friendly staff. The best deal in Brooklyn you’ll ever get

The hotel was three blocks from my daughter which is why we selected it. We were there 5 nights. Our room was clean and quiet and the beds were comfortable but there was no housekeeping the whole time. We asked for and received clean towels once, a roll of toilet paper once and a hair dryer. My main complaint was about the staff. The women who worked here were very nice and smiled and said hello - the men were surly - one in particular. You would think after 5 days he would at least nod when we came in but he totally ignored us. His is supposed to be a customer relations job....he doesn't seem to understand that. I'll probably stay here again because of the location, but I won't expect any good cheer.

Affordable and good location downtown Brooklyn is a great place to stay

Super accommodating staff. Hotel is located in a wonderful area convenient to everything. The rooms are quite comfortable and the coffee machine is an added bonus as is the breakfast that is served in the lobby. I have already set up my next stay at the Nu.

Always stay here when we’re in Brooklyn. Wouldn’t change a thing.

Clean, friendly, good breakfast. Rooms are small but efficient

Terrific hotel. Very stylish, comfortable and quiet. The bed was great. Nice quality bath products. The desk and desk chair in room were comfortable for getting writing done. Wifi strong. Staff were helpful and nice. Breakfast healthy and plentiful.

Everything excellent but the bed is like a air mattress . Really low on floor also but over all great hotel

I’ve stayed here more than 5 times over the last two years. It’s always a pleasant experience. The complimentary breakfast is great and the rooms are well appointed.

My wife and I had a very pleasant visit to Brooklyn. We were visiting relatives who live near Prospect Park. The location of the NU Hotel proved to be very convenient and afforded us easy access to the subway, several restaurants and coffee houses. The hotel staff were courteous and professional. We certainly will consider staying at the NU Hotel during future visits.

Breakfast was baad- we are gluten free and it was mostly sweet/wheat. That is very poor for Brooklyn having such great food. Also noise in the area filters into room.

Great location, helpful staff. Room is a great size, comfy bed. I wish I had asked for a higher floor as the street is a bit loud!

This is a very basic hotel with a reasonable rate for NY. The included breakfast is a nice bonus but each time I've stayed at this hotel they seem to have problems with heating or cooling, both common areas and rooms. If you are fine with a non-luxury hotel that is walking distance to everything in downtown Brooklyn I recommend this hotel.

This place is a diamond in the ruff . Fair price, great service and perfect location

Overall good experience. Modern hotel. Rooms a little small but we didn't spend too much time in the room

My husband I stay here whenever we visit Brooklyn. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is very comfortable. The hotel is convenient to nearby family members. It is in a safe and relaxing neighborhood.

Stayed 2 nights as a couple in a Queen room, listed as 262 sq ft but felt very spacious - great room layout. Bathroom was bright, ample counter space, luxe Occitane products in the shower, great rain head shower. Bed was comfortable with clean, crisp white linens and lots of pillows. Blackout curtains provided great privacy and darkness for sleeping. Appreciated the dual plugs beside each bed so you could charge your phone/laptop conveniently. Also had USB outlets. Stocked mini bar, fridge, Keurig coffee maker with coffee/tea and mugs, in-room. Decor was lovely, chic, contemporary and you felt like you were in a more luxury hotel for the price. Excellent value. I can't say enough about the hotel staff. Probably the friendliest I've ever encountered.

Great hotel and continental breakfast! The room was very spacious for a New York hotel room and the bed was comfortable. It was very clean and nicely decorated. We would stay here again!

Eclectic hotel. Very nice. Especially loved the hardwood floors.

Good morning and thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. We really appreciate the comments you made about our cleanliness and comfort. Of course, I'm concerned about your impression of our male staff members. I've never received such a comment before. I'd really appreciate you contacting me directly on this with more detail. In reference to the servicing of guest rooms, requesting service(rather than automatic daily service) is our part of our current health and safety measures. Most guests have preferred the minimizing of hotel personnel entering their guest room. We do our best to communicate this policy at check-in, on our website and via in-room collateral. Please feel free to reach out to me personally.
