“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 22 May 2012

I wasn't expecting much on arrival at the Pointe Plaza Hotel in Brooklyn, where we planned to stay with our family for 2 nights, but was pleasantly surprised.

When we arrived we had booked 2 rooms, one with two single beds and a cot, and one with 2 double beds. Instead they upgraded us to 2 doubles on the 5th floor. The units both had a small kitchen, a safe, bathrooms, and were very clean. The beds were very comfortable and we slept very well - then again we were pretty exhausted. The breakfast was served in fairly small room on the 5th floor. It probably handles about 20 people at a sitting. The breakfast was quite acceptable, and all we needed. If I had to make a comment on the negative, it would simply be that it was a bit cramped in the self-serve part of the room. Otherwise it was nice and bright (there is a skylight above the dining area).

Overall I would recommend staying here when visiting New York. We were fascinated with the area, and it was walking distance from the nearest subway stop (they do offer free shuttle rides into Times Square every morning).

We stayed for one week at the pointe plaza and came home 2day. Very nice hotel, no rumour, clean room and receptionists are very nice. We had most contact with the guys Fouddil and Dewi and they were so kind and helpful. Breakfast is with it..it's a simple but good breakfast. We rated the service with a 3 because the girl from breakfastroom was only playing with her telephone and not so helpful. Hotel is in a jewish neighbourhood, so a lot.of orthodox jewish people live in the neighbourhood. There are always lots of people on street and its very safe! For 25 dllr you can take cab to manhattan, or you can go there by train..10 minutes walk to subwaystation and after 20min your in manhattan. It's a little trip, but you will see a lot and use the nice subwaystation. Wenn we go back to nyc we will definately book again here!! We had room without tv ..when we came there our hotelroom even got a kitchen with microwave and bathroom with bath. Kings beds ..so plenty of space! We had room 218..if you d like to book nice room you shouldve ask for that room. Thank you so much for giving us a great time at pointe plaza ..we will definately come back! Greets R & E.

We stayed here on our most recent trip to New York. Both times we based in Brooklyn. This hotel is right in the heart of a Hasidic Jewish neighborhood. We found it very interesting and fascinating too. The hotel is in the south part of the Williamsburg area. The subway is a 7-10 minute walk and the station is the Flushing station which is on the G line. Getting to Manhattan is easy. The Pointe Plaza is clean, comfortable, friendly, and the staff is very helpful. I would not hesitate to suggest this hotel to any one.

Staff was very nice and helpful. The price is great for the quality of the room. We spent two nights here and on the first day we thought we would walk to Williamsburg. There are a few things you need a heads-up on. The first is that this hotel is in the center of a Hellenistic Jewish community. The down side is that if you are not one, it's very uncomfortable. The up side is that it is very safe around the hotel. The second is that while it is easy to call the front desk and get a cab to go wherever you want, MANY cabs have no clue where this hotel is. So if you want to get back to the hotel late at night, make sure you have a GPS and tell a cab driver that you can help him with directions. The last heads-up and the only complaint is that the traffic (honking) was extremely loud outside our room on the 2nd floor. Possibly get a room higher up or ask for room that is on the opposite side of the streets. Overall, for a first visit to new york, it was cheap, service was average and you will sure have a story to tell.

Room Tip: Again, get a room that is not on the street side so you don't have to deal with noise. Also avoi...
