Modern, hip and located closely to major rail lines, this hotel is great for both the business and leisure traveler alike, who want a Williamsburg address, minus the traffic and noise. All rooms at the Condor Hotel feature kitchenettes with microwaves, coffeemakers and refrigerators. Upgrading to one of their suites adds living and dining space, making the available extended stay options very attractive.

BKLYN House

BKLYN House

Located in southeast Williamsburg, the BKLYN House is one of the more affordable options, but doesn’t skimp on comfort and design. Its walls are festooned with murals by local artists, and its guest rooms have that coveted Brooklyn loft aesthetic. Modern and minimal, the amenities are standard but well appointed. Both wifi and breakfast are on the house, and the hotel offers day passes with local fitness centers. The BKLYN House is ideal for the travel conscious, leaving money in your pocket to spend out on the town. And with Williamsburg’s miles of good food, drinks, art and local culture, that’s a good deal to make. The hotel’s proximity to the JMZ trains means you’re also just minutes from Manhattan.

New York Moore Hostel

New York Moore Hostel

This self-proclaimed “luxury hostel” might perplex the mind at first, but its level of comfort and charm in East Williamsburg is difficult to argue with. The place is eclectic, eccentric and affordable, with private rooms as well as shared dorms available. Interiors vary from room to room, but you can expect to find decorative touches like velvet sofas and subway graffiti. The guest kitchen is fully stocked, and the hostel offers free coffee or tea all day, which pairs well with free wifi. The Moore is located just enough off the beaten path to keep your nights quiet, but is walking distance to buzz-worthy food and drink options.

The B Hotel & Hostel is ideal for the budget conscious. The hostel sits at an enviable address on Broadway, just a few minutes’ walk from the Williamsburg bridge and several great restaurants, delis and bars.

With free wifi and more importantly, free parking, the affordable rooms and location make this hip hostel a top contender. Plus, you’re only one stop on the JMZ away from Manhattan.
