Set on a funky (but very safe) street near the historic Boerum Hill area, this colonial-looking brick hotel features cheery contemporary rooms at excellent prices. So what that you won’t be able to walk around your bed once you’ve laid your suitcase next to it? The bed is a highly comfortable one, and you’re getting digs with a private bathroom at prices some places charge for rooms with shared facilities. The included breakfast consists of a coupon to a nearby diner. And it’s just 2 short blocks from a subway that will zoom you into Manhattan.
