NY Dairies #4| The Box House Hotel Review

When booking a holiday I usually spend days and hour looking for the right hotel, and for this trip I had made the little mistake of leaving part of that the responsibility to an external company. For the first half of this trip we were staying in something I can only describe as a 'dreary hole' in Manhattan. Although it was opposite Central Park and a 'desirable location' I still felt crappy there and did not spend more time in there then to sleep. Just think of a humid shoebox with no windows, with a distinct smell of bleach constantly lingering in the air.... that was our humble home for 5 days :(.

Moving on, I had been smart enough to book the last part of this trip myself and decided we would spend it with the 'peeps' in Brooklyn, in an amazing hotel called TheBoxHouse. I had seen the picture and reviews (No.1 in Brooklyn) and was sold. On arrival it did not disappoint and I breathed a happy sigh of relief.
It is beautiful, peaceful chilled out and just ooooooo. Its somewhere you can feel very at home rather then feeling like you are at a hotel, the staff are helpful and chatty, and the facilities are on point.
I was glad I spent my final days in this place, I would highly reccomend and it was the cherry on top for my NYC experience

I must say, my pictures don't do it justice!


  1. I really like the quirky decor - it's a bit unusual. I know you're not supposed to really spend much time in the hotel room and instead be out exploring but still if the accommodation isn't right, for me it does take away some of the fun of the whole experience. Xx


  2. Gorgeous hotel! The room seems so bright and airy, and the decor is gorgeous!
