Enjoyable stay at Penny Williamsburg
Had a great stay at Penny Williamsburg, The hotel's location was convenient and provided easy access to the surrounding areas. The staff was welcoming, friendly, and went out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The room was clean, well-maintained, and equipped with all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay. While the Wi-Fi was a bit slow and unresponsive, this was only a minor issue for me since i was out and about and did not detract from the overall positive experience. I would highly recommend Hotel Penny Williamsburg to anyone looking for a comfortable and affordable stay in Brooklyn.

Cute, comfy hotel
Cute hotel! It was relatively cheap when I booked for 3 nights and the room was a lot larger than I expected. It was nice to have a table/microwave/fridge while I was there and the housekeeping came every day without specifically requesting them, which I feel like doesn't always happen anymore. Would definitely come back!
