Rooms are extremely small; WiFi service iffy

Pros: Coffee and breakfast in diner 2-1/2 blocks away on 4th Avenue and Union.
Cons: Renovate to make fewer number of rooms per floor so each room would have comfortable/usable space. Fix WiFi.
Our stay in Union Hotel consisted of two (2) rooms on two different floors. In both rooms, each had a full size bed, 2/3 of which nested about 2 inches against a wall on one side and about one foot from the face of a through-wall unit ventilator (AC & heating unit) under a window on its other side. This configuration made it very difficult to climb up into the bed. (Each mattress was very high above the floor due to the almost inaccessible "storage drawer" under each bed frame.) Both rooms were extremely small and confined. There was absolutely no space for quests to lay luggage down to unpack or pack it other than placing each piece on the bed to do so. Layouts of bathrooms: one had a triangular footprint shower so small that guest can barely turn without touching plastic curtain; the other had trash can placed such that guest had to sit sideways on water closet. In 1 room, TV was mounted on wall that rubbed against side of bed, causing extreme neck cranking and awkward viewing. One room had a small desk that is about 16/18 inches deep; the other room had a small wall-mounted shelf barely deep enough to hold a desk phone. WiFi service was non-existent on 4th floor (which staff was unable to resolve) but was adequate on the 2nd floor. (Hotel has four floors of rooms.) Running noise of through-wall unit ventilators in both rooms were very loud even at low fan speed; one would need to crank up TV volume to hear sound from TV.

Hotel okay but...

Pros: The breakfast in the corner bar was very good ans staff pleasant. Underground station is closeby. Street is not too noisy and area seems safe.
Cons: Do not put guest on this horrible room ! You are selling night, it is what an hotel stand for, so please, at least make it possible for two people !
Location: NYC
I booked this hotel for 3 nights based mostly on positive comments found online but when we arrived, we found a ridiculously tiny room, so tight that the AC unit was on the bed. I mean, literally! The bed was under the window and AC unit was on the very lower part of the window so, directly on the bed. Maybe 10 cm above. So AC was not usable during night, and 1/4th of the bed was not ! We tried to move the bedtable to push further the bed but impossible with the bedhead. Of course we ask to change room next morning (not directly it was 1:30 am and we were exhausted) but we were told that hotel was full and guest will arrived during the day for their stay, manager was not reachable to switch blahblah so we had to stay another night in the "cupboard". Moreover, this room was in the same hallway than entrance so very loud all night long. The last evening when we arrived, surprised ! All our stuff had been moved by cleaning staff without even calling us whereas I left my number at the reception, and we finally had the pleasure to have a real room, with all the facilities that were described online (no clock or ipod station in the first room), even if the room. itself was not a lot more wider, but a full usage of the bed was possible. Hotel overall is nice, renovated and clean but I was so disappointed ! I travel a lot so I am used to have "surprise" in hotel room but that one... If I have to come again in NYC, I am not sure I would like to take the risk to experience this again..

Nice hotel in downtown Brooklyn.

Pros: Clean, stylish, nice view from rooftop.
Cons: Fix the power outlets in room 201. Half of them don't work.
Location: Too many to mention. You are is Brooklyn ;)
Clean, tidy room, AC works almost too well, great location close to Barclay's. Small room, small "queen" bed - perfect for one guy.

nice but tiny

I've read other guest reviews on this hotel before making the reservation so I knew in advance that the room was going to be small. Still my husband and I were shocked when we entered the room. We literally could not open the door all the way. One person had to slide in, step over the bed and close the door again for the other person to get in. We managed to put our 2 carry-on suitcases in the wardrobe and squeezed the other big suitcase side-way in the tiny space between the bed and the wall. Anyway, once everything was put away, we were fine. Everything was clean and new. The bed was very comfy (maybe because we were always tired after our long days in the city). The highlight of our stay was definitely the breakfast at the cafe down the street. The food was great, the waitress was friendly, and the whole place was just cozy. Loved it! All in all, I would only recommend this hotel to single travelers who don't carry lots of luggage. It would not be too comfortable for couples though. We are both small (Asians) and we could barely fit in the room.
