We lived in this area of Brooklyn years ago and when we recently returned to the City we wanted to stay as close to our old neighborhood as possible. The Nu Hotel is a fantastic location offering proximity to the quaint Cobble Hill and Brooklyn Heights parts of the city, but also great subway access for a quick trip into...

Its like coming home when I stay at the NU Hotel. I always stay here the day before I sail on the Queen Mary 2 which departs from Red Hook. I have lost count of the nights I have stayed here. This last visit was on 1/2/17. I was sailing the next day to Cape Town. I keep coming back...

Clean room, nice size . Interestingly had no closet or place to hang your clothes. Parking is next door and I'm sure it's on par with the area but cost $30 to park overnight. Conveniently located to many restaurants. More than I expected to pay at over $300 a night but again probably on par with the area

This hotel is well located in a dynamic part of Brooklyn, filled with interesting stores, restaurants and people. The hotel itself is a remodeled property in a style that is best described as mid-century eclectic. It appeals to a younger crowd, matching the demographics of the locale. Noise wasn't bad, in part because our room did not overlook the street....

What a great hotel! The room had plenty of light and seating -- an extra chair and a desk chair. The bathroom chalkboard was a nice touch and the breakfast options were ok (I don't know why a Brooklyn hotel has sub-par bagels, but that was a minor problem!) Everyone on the staff was very nice and the hotel is...

Urban decor. Good service. Young staff. Clean room. Pretty basic and simple. I needed some Tylenol and they don't have a little shop or anything. The area of Brooklyn felt safe so in the middle of the night, I walked to Rite Aid. It was fine.

I live in the neighborhood, but had the opportunity to visit when friends decided to rent a room with HDTV for their annual Oscar party-of-three. I had always wanted to check it out, in case I needed a place for family and friends to stay, and this was a good way to do it. The staff were very welcoming, and...

Recently my husband and I spent our anniversary at the NU hotel. The location is excellent, and within walking distance of the restaurant we chose. I can't say enough good things about this hotel! It was reasonable, so clean and comfortable, and the staff was so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!

My company puts me up in this hotel when I am in town. I visited twice in February 2017 and had a perfect stay each time. The room was comfortable, clean, and well-taken care of. The highlight of the hotel, though, is its staff. Brian, Sapphire, and Carribe, in particular, go above and beyond to accommodate the hotel's guests. More...
