Once an independent city in its own right, Brooklyn is now New York’s most populous borough and is located just across the East River from Manhattan.
With its distinct culture, independent arts scene, unique architectural heritage, beautiful parks, and Michelin-starred restaurants that draw visitors from around the globe, it’s hard not to find something to love about this happening borough of New York City.

Brooklyn boasts hundreds of accommodation options across its growing number of diverse neighbourhoods, but here are a few hotels in Brooklyn to consider for your next stay.
For the design-conscious traveler
The Aloft New York Brooklyn Hotel provides stylish loft-style accommodation in downtown Brooklyn, just five minutes from Brooklyn Bridge and 1.7 miles from Manhattan.
The minimalist rooms are furnished with king beds and 42-inch flat-screen TVs, and bathrooms feature rainfall showers. You’ll also find pod-shaped seats and colored lights in the public areas, giving them a dynamic and contemporary feel.
Up on the roof, a terrace bar stages live music and DJ sets, and offers fantastic views across the city’s skyline.

For those that like to stay central
Boasting reasonably-priced rooms in a central location, La Quinta Inn & Suites Brooklyn Downtown is a reliable choice in downtown Brooklyn. The hotel is situated in Park Slope, a neighbourhood that is full of leafy streets lined with historic brownstones and intimate eateries. The Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Museum, and Prospect Park are all located within close proximity of Park Slope.
Rooms are comfortable and clean and the nightly rate includes a complimentary continental breakfast.
As an added bonus (which most hotels in Brooklyn don’t offer), you can bring your feline friend or faithful hound along free of charge. Children aged 18 or younger can also stay free, providing they occupy the same room as their parent or guardian.

For the budget-conscious traveler
The Riviera Motor Inn Brooklyn offers some of the cheapest lodgings in Brooklyn. It’s located close to the border with Queens in the northeastern section of the borough, and it features 42 guestrooms whose nightly rate includes complimentary self-parking.
Highland Park is a few blocks from the hotel and it’s just a six-minute walk to the nearest subway station.
For those seeking a home away from home
Award-winning Eve’s Place provides bed-and-breakfast-style accommodation in a charming Victorian house. Located on a quiet, tree-lined street close to Brooklyn College and owned by a lovely lady who guests cannot praise enough for her kindness and hospitality, Eve’s place is a peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of New York City.

Each of the four rooms features a kitchen with a full-size refrigerator and microwave. A complimentary self-service breakfast is available every morning.
The nearest metro station is just a five-minute walk from the property, which provides easy access to nearby attractions such as Prospect Park Zoo and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. Eve’s Place is also just 20 minutes from Manhattan.
With nightly rates from just $99, and weekly and monthly discounts available, once you discover Eve’s place, you really won’t want to leave.
