    The hotel punches above its weight, good facilities, helpful staff,really good complimentary breakfast but it needs to because of theappalling location.Don't get a room too close to the breakfast room, if you want to sleepin. The staff setting up is very loud. We asked to move rooms and wereaccomidated.

    This hotel turned out to be an excellent choice for a first-time visit to New York. Its location - literally next to the LIRR station and two short blocks from the A,C subway - provides for convenient access to JFK airport, as well as downtown Brooklyn and most of Manhattan. The Deluxe King room has been a delight and the continental breakfast is a nice touch. The neighborhood might not look like much, but there are plenty of good places to eat all around, from simple take-aways to nice restaurants. Internet access is hassle-free and staff was very helpful all the time. All in all, a great experience!Variaty of breakfast food could be better.

    The hotel is clean, confortable and the staff is very friendly. There'sabsolutely nothing wrong with the hotel itself. The big big problem isthe area and local people surrounding.The location is terrible!! It's very close to the subway but it's not aneighborhood for tourists!! I wouln't believe if someone told me, butit's worse than I could ever imagine. It feels really unsafe to walkaround the area because of the people who live there, and everything isvery ugly and dirty. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the hotel,but I would never ever stay there again because of the neighborhood. So,if you want to stay in nyc I really recommend a hotel in another placeor maybe you can pay the same to stay in a place less confortable isnyc. Think twice before book this hotel.

    It's almost a 4 Star Hotel, for a good price if you compare it to other hotels in New York. It was comfortable and clean. I really appreciated the attention that the hotel has towards its guests providing them with comfort items, like a big screen TV, a coffee maker with decaf & normal coffee, lots of cups, 2 small bottles of water, a good hair dryer, facial soap, slippers, robes & more. The bed was really big, comfy and had 4 pillows. The bathroom was essential, but clean, which always is my biggest concern. It had enough space to put plenty of things near the sink.The room stank of stale tobacco smoke and was across the road from anelevated rail line which rattled thought the night.

    After all that I've read prior to booking I knew what we were going into when staying at the Arena Hotel; A clean decent hotel with good beds, friendly staff, an American breakfast and located in a dodgy area.And all of that for less than 100 euro incl. all taxes and fees is an absolute bargain when you want to visit New York, because indeed metro-station Nostrand Av. does have fast connections into Manhattan and is at not even 5 minutes from the hotel.I highly recommend this hotel to all smart travelers who have big city experience in their luggage, because really this dodgy area is no worse than what you may encounter in any big city around the world.

    Our stay at the Best Western was a pleasant surprise. The bed was adream to sleep in. We ask the manager for the name of the mattress. TheContinential Breakfast was much more than the usual coffee and donut.Thumbs up to you Best Western, an oasis in Bed-Stuy.My one and only gripe is that I flew in from the Caribbean that night. My luggage was lost. My winter coat was in the lost luggage so I was freezing cold, in 37 degree weather. I get to the hotel after midnight, freezing. I check in and asked, since the limited parking lot(not stated on the web page) was full, if I could park in the front(there was a space) til 7 am because I didn't have a winter coat, lost my luggage etc. I was told"no". I asked to speak to the manager, and was told he can't be reached right now, and he wouldn't approve. I had to head out in the 37 degree weather, to find a place to park, and walk all the way back in the freezing cold. That was not a pleasant experience. I feel that they could have been more understanding, after my explanation.

    The room is super clean!!! The complimentary breakfast is good and thehotel staff is really friendly!Just a few things to be aware of. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to alone traveling girls. The area is quite safe if you mind your own business and you don't make it really late, but I would be quite careful. in the distance we could hear some gun shots the last night. It's an afro-american area with people that don't seem too integrated and happy about their social and economic condition. Things that could be improved by the hotel are fresh sheets every day, especially when you accidentally dropped some food on it, a better shower/bath (it's clean and well-working, but a newer one with a box would be top). Another small thing I didn't like is that they didn't give us new robes when they took them away the second day.All in all, not much to complain about - if anything.

    The location was close to the train and city. It was a scary neighborhood however we encountered mainly friendly hardworking people. Parking was not plentiful. The rooms were very clean.pillows were awesomeThe room stank of stale tobacco smoke and was across the road from anelevated rail line which rattled thought the night.

    It's almost a 4 Star Hotel, for a good price if you compare it to other hotels in New York. It was comfortable and clean. I really appreciated the attention that the hotel has towards its guests providing them with comfort items, like a big screen TV, a coffee maker with decaf & normal coffee, lots of cups, 2 small bottles of water, a good hair dryer, facial soap, slippers, robes & more. The bed was really big, comfy and had 4 pillows. The bathroom was essential, but clean, which always is my biggest concern. It had enough space to put plenty of things near the sink.No comments - all aspects of my stay at this hotel met my expectation and I would recommend it to other travellers to NYC.

    To close from a subway station. Good stuff. There are you have everything what you need for comfortable staying from own iron with the desk and free wi-fi to good parking and all other. All the best, we enjoyed it!!!One is literally on the road, once you come out of the hotel. However, considering the location and value-for-money proposition, one can live with it.

    A haven of peace and luxury in a very rough area of Brooklyn.Convenient to rapid down and uptown subway transport, and excellent shopping for the necessities of life.Excellent breakfast, and helpful friendly staff.Highly recommended by this mature Australian couple.My one and only gripe is that I flew in from the Caribbean that night. My luggage was lost. My winter coat was in the lost luggage so I was freezing cold, in 37 degree weather. I get to the hotel after midnight, freezing. I check in and asked, since the limited parking lot(not stated on the web page) was full, if I could park in the front(there was a space) til 7 am because I didn't have a winter coat, lost my luggage etc. I was told"no". I asked to speak to the manager, and was told he can't be reached right now, and he wouldn't approve. I had to head out in the 37 degree weather, to find a place to park, and walk all the way back in the freezing cold. That was not a pleasant experience. I feel that they could have been more understanding, after my explanation.

    After all that I've read prior to booking I knew what we were going into when staying at the Arena Hotel; A clean decent hotel with good beds, friendly staff, an American breakfast and located in a dodgy area.And all of that for less than 100 euro incl. all taxes and fees is an absolute bargain when you want to visit New York, because indeed metro-station Nostrand Av. does have fast connections into Manhattan and is at not even 5 minutes from the hotel.I highly recommend this hotel to all smart travelers who have big city experience in their luggage, because really this dodgy area is no worse than what you may encounter in any big city around the world.nothing bad

    This hotel turned out to be an excellent choice for a first-time visit to New York. Its location - literally next to the LIRR station and two short blocks from the A,C subway - provides for convenient access to JFK airport, as well as downtown Brooklyn and most of Manhattan. The Deluxe King room has been a delight and the continental breakfast is a nice touch. The neighborhood might not look like much, but there are plenty of good places to eat all around, from simple take-aways to nice restaurants. Internet access is hassle-free and staff was very helpful all the time. All in all, a great experience!Location

    Great value for money . super clean room,comfortable bed, cable and WiFi, friendly staff. Breakfast was perfect. Less than five minute walk to subway.The neighborhood is a little scrappy looking, but there's nothing wrong with it . My fiance and I walked all around and never had any trouble. The locals were all friendly. It is authentic not-for-tourists New York. If you want to be near super hip clubs and restaurants you should stay in Manhattan. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in New York.

    It's staff very kind and helpful.Just a few things to be aware of. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to alone traveling girls. The area is quite safe if you mind your own business and you don't make it really late, but I would be quite careful. in the distance we could hear some gun shots the last night. It's an afro-american area with people that don't seem too integrated and happy about their social and economic condition. Things that could be improved by the hotel are fresh sheets every day, especially when you accidentally dropped some food on it, a better shower/bath (it's clean and well-working, but a newer one with a box would be top). Another small thing I didn't like is that they didn't give us new robes when they took them away the second day.All in all, not much to complain about - if anything.

    Our main aim was to explore New York, especially Manhattan and Brooklyn. Its location, being just 2 blocks away from the Metro subway station at Nostrand Ave, proved to be ideal for us to be able to travel daily to Manhattan and/or Brooklyn. Staff was courteous and caring. I really liked the availability of the newspapers New York Times and USA today during the week-days. Stay here was truly value-for-money proposition.

    Our stay at the Best Western was a pleasant surprise. The bed was adream to sleep in. We ask the manager for the name of the mattress. TheContinential Breakfast was much more than the usual coffee and donut.Thumbs up to you Best Western, an oasis in Bed-Stuy.Not a best/safe part of Brooklyn, but actually we never felt danger.
