Verified Reviews of Nu Hotel Brooklyn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very clean and Spacious"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We really enjoyed the hotel. The rooms are spacious and the Continental Breakfast was good although, I would have liked it if there was a sweet roll choice! We didn't know about the bikes, but probably wouldn't have taken them as it was too cold. The price was very good we will definitely be staying there again!

"A home away from home."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We enjoyed thanks to Staff and hotel the feeling we were in our own little place for two weeks whilst we visited our daughter and her family close by. Breakfast was nice perfect for me the all day coffee and chocolate chip cookies wonderful. I would like if you could supply decaf coffee as I can't take the caffeine after my first coffee of the day. That would be nice room was wonderful and I loved having my L'Octaine bath supplies which I buy for myself anyways.

Property Description

Recently opened in July 2008 and even more recently renovated, NU Hotel offers a smart, clean, fresh design along with expert service. Acquaint yourself with this entirely new Brooklyn hotel, conceived to create an authentic travel experience integrated into the fabric of the local landscape. This perfectly positioned Brooklyn NY hotel sits squarely at the intersection of four intriguing neighborhoods: * Downtown Brooklyn, home to the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the court houses and the offices at Metrotech center. * Boerum Hill, where streets are lined with elegant brownstones and French bistros. * Cobble Hill, a blend of old world shops and bakeries and gardens. * Carroll Gardens, an old-fashioned Italian neighborhood with wide streets, chic restaurants, and antique shops.A design approach intended to appear effortless, combined with a casual attitude, define the hotel, while the beauty and friendly nature of the neighborhoods ensure that guests feel safe and secure as they explore the gems that Brooklyn has to offer. The ambiance suggests an artistic local neighborhood refuge providing a unique, insider's experience. The minimalist, loft-inspired rooms include custom furnishings crafted from recycled teak wood, cork floors, environmentally conscious woods, lead-free paints, and organic bedding. Step into this intriguing and exciting new departure from a typical Brooklyn hotel to discover an imaginative new approach to city living -- smart, clean, simple, and, best of all, casual. Simply put, NU is all about you.

Green Sustainability

Yes, from our Green Design Elements such as our hardwood floors made of recyclable materials, recycled wood furnishings, L'Occitane en Provence products in eco-friendly dispensers to our comp bike rentals as alternatives to car rentals, we take pride in being one of the market leaders in sustainability.
