Less achingly hip than other Brooklyn neighborhoods, Park Slope has a smart, suburban feel, with historical brownstone residences and mom-filled cafes. However, there’s a sprinkling of nightlife – more live-music bars and BYOB bistros than all-night speakeasies. Central Manhattan is a good half-hour away by public transport, so come here to dig into the relaxed pace and artsy local scene. Read on for our pick of the best hotels in Park Slope, New York City, bookable on Culture Trip.

This smart business hotel provides a comfortable stay, warmed up by the odd chenille throw, potted plant and bathroom orchid. People stay at Hotel Le Bleu for its affordable rates, killer views of Manhattan from several west-facing rooms and location. Brooklyn highlights such as Prospect Park, with its running trails and city zoo, and the many restaurants of Fifth Avenue are within a 20-minute walk.

2. Union Hotel, Ascend Hotel Collection

With some of the most affordable rooms in the neighborhood, this boxy red-brick guesthouse pays homage to the warehouses and factories that helped build the area, hence the utilitarian façade, smart black-and-white beds and hip white-tiled bathrooms with CO Bigelow toiletries. It’s close to the Gowanus Canal, and Brooklyn’s Union Street subway is just a block away, with 30-minute trains into downtown Manhattan.

3. EVEN Hotel Brooklyn

Friendly staff and zingy toy-box colors greet you at this slick hotel just north of Park Slope. Built with business travelers in mind, it’s all utterly logical, from charging points at the breakfast bar to slim, space-saving desks in the clean and modern rooms. In-room yoga kits and soothing herbal tea in the lobby have an eye on your wellbeing. And the location’s great for foodies; head to nearby DeKalb Market Hall for New York’s street-food highlights – all in one industrial space.

4. NU Hotel

This youthful pad is worth it for the buzzy lobby alone – a coffee bar with pavement-side tables and squishy sofas that turn up the volume for cocktails by night. Rooms are on the spacious side and unique. Some have graffiti-like murals, while others feature quirky beds sunken into PVC platforms or have hammocks and sofas to lounge on. The friendly, twentysomething staff has great tips for nearby Fort Greene and Cobble Hill.

5. Parkside Bed and Breakfast

Bed and Breakfast

Right on the edge of Brooklyn’s undulating, forested Prospect Park, with its botanical gardens and kids’ playgrounds, a spell in this pretty, ivory-colored townhouse feels more like staying with New York friends. The host, Jan, is an artist and has spangled this historical building with fanciful paintings and burnished antiques. While facilities are basic, and wifi isn’t the fastest, you’ll feel right at home.

6. Hotel Indigo Brooklyn

Despite the unprepossessing exterior (a boxy, office-like tower), this hotel is an efficient modern base with a streak of Brooklyn sassiness. Walking into the lofty lobby, all polished surfaces and scarlet wall art, you’ll get a taste of the design clash ahead: sharp modernity meets curious frills. Your room might include a striped sofa, rococo mirrors or a chandelier-inspired ceiling mural. Most travelers choose it for its Downtown Brooklyn location, close to flea markets, brunch spots and Brooklyn Bridge Park.

7. Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott New York Brooklyn

A brick rooftop terrace with views of low-rise, leafy Brooklyn is one of this hotel’s main perks. Others include an artsy coffee shop; a mini-market selling chips, chocolate and soft drinks at grocery-store prices; and a colorful modern aesthetic from top to toe. Communal spaces are more vibrant than the rooms, which come in standard business-hotel sizes and shades of brown, white and blue. However, you’re right on the doorstep of cool, youthful neighborhoods Gowanus and Cobble Hill.
