Great location, two blocks from Union Station and "R" train, which takes you right into Manhattan, or Coney Island, depending on which way you want to head. Lots of Brooklyn landmarks nearby. Make no mistake about the gritty urban atmosphere, but it is also surprisingly young-family-oriented, with tree-lined side streets of Park Slope brownstones. Dining option run the gamut from upscale to a bit seedy. So if you are comfortable in this type of urban environment, the Union Hotel is a terrific value. There is a kitchen in the lower floor with an outdoor courtyard, which guests can use.

Honestly one of the worst experiences I've had at a hotel. I showed up and the receptionist gave me a room that was the size of a walk in closet where the door barely opened, bathroom was not fully cleaned and the sheets were dirty with hair, dust and other unknown particles even though the bed looked like it was made. I definitely paid for the larger "premium" room but got the small one instead. I went downstairs to politely complain about the wrong room size, cleanliness, etc. and got zero apologies. Instead she said "did you take a shower"? even though I was in there for just a few minutes. I said no and then she says that there may not be another room available until after a couple of min she found another one. It was also really run down but at least it was larger and the sheets didn't seem visibly dirty. I politely asked for a TV remote as I didn't see one and she said curtly that she didn't have anymore. I said I saw one in the first small room I went into and she just she just rudely repeated that they don't have anymore and then said "we have one but it has no batteries." (looking at me like I should get them). I asked if she can get some batteries and she flat out said no. While I was at the reception, there was a man who then came rushing in arguing with the receptionist about his room being locked out with her arguing back. Then very aggressive shouting occured where I thought things would get potentially violent so I quickly went to my room (located close to the reception) where I heard continual shouting and really worrying things being said which made me feel very unsafe. Soon after things died down, I asked the receptionist for the manager or owner to ask for my money back so that I can leave as I felt very unsafe there for cleanliness and also the aggressive behavior I witnessed and heard involving the receptionist. She said she'll be back tomorrow and essentially threw up her hands. I quickly packed my bags and left after about 1 hour of being there in total, dropped the keys off at the front desk and left. How is this place still open?! It needs to be shut down.

Recently, I spent three nights in this hotel. I was moved twice as a result of the air conditioner was not operational in the rooms. The original room I was placed in was extremely small. However, I was upgraded to a much nicer room with air. The hotel had a feel of properties I visited while abroad in Europe. The ice machine and refrigerator were located on the basement level of the hotel. I was surprised for a hotel to have a coffee machine as well as an ice machine with no cups, no coffee and no ice containers. When I requested a cup on the first night of my stay a very accommodating African-American staff member gave me one as well as fixed my problem with getting on the internet. However, when I requested cups on the second of my stay I was told there were none. Also, the hotel had no wash clothes and the towels have gone down to a sub standard quality. The room had no sheet on the bed just a comforter. As I have read in other reviews, I need indeed smell cigarettes. I informed the receptionist and she seemed to convey to me that nothing could be done. It is really sad as I have stayed in this property many times and always had a pretty nice stay. Again, I was indeed very disappointed with this property and if rating do not start to improve will never stay here again. My sincere hope is that the hotel management will read these comments and adhere to improving the hotel.

Worst hotel experience ever. When I walked in, the lobby smelled of weed and the front desk clerk was nowhere to be found for at least 15 min. When we finally got to our room, the door couldn’t open fully because the bed was in the way. Inside the room, the queen bed took up the entire space with one sliver of a walkway from the bed to the bathroom. Be careful while walking from the bed to the bathroom because there is a piece of wood that sticks out off of the bed and I banged my leg on it a couple of times (for some reason that is a part of the bed design). The mattress feels like it’s stacked on top of cardboard boxes that can collapse with any sudden movement. The bathroom is old, with brown grout and mold in the shower and on the ceiling. The shower looked clean enough until I turned on the water and the urine smell hit me. There was only one towel in the entire room and when we asked for more we were told “sure” but it never showed up. There is no phone in the room so I’m grateful to be living in the era of cell phones. I wish I could find one pleasant thing to say about this hotel but I cannot. I truly wonder what this building was before becoming a hotel because the size of the rooms and how the beds fit inside makes no logistical sense. 0/10 do not recommend.

Worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at in my entire life. The front desk attendant was frying bacon while he was on shift. Whatever you do don’t stay here. Rather be homeless then stay at this garbage dump honestly
