I lived in Brooklyn before moving to Germany, and I came back to visit friends who lived in the neighborhood. I loved this place!! Yes it was not one of those trendy Manhattan hotels but if you want that then I dare you to go pay the price. I loved staying in this brownstone with its old charm and the...

The neighborhood was not like where I was from but my friend who was from Brooklyn snapped me into seeing how judgemental I was. When we walked around the neighborhood, the people were actually friendly and there were different types of Caribbean restaurants nearby as well as American and fast food places. The building was that Brooklyn, brownstone type building....

I didn't like a single thing about this booking, including Booking.com. How could you trouble people like this who are travelling with family to unnkown places? First of all I chose this hotel in Brooklyn because I had to catch a early morning shuttle for a upcoming tour which was supposed to leave 7am next day. And this hotel was...

First, we were surprised by the neighborhood. This Inn is in a very run down are of Brooklyn. There are no restaurants that one would feel comfortable eating in. We felt uncomfortable walking through the neighborhood. One of the neighboring houses was boarded up. Inside our room the bathroom was an absolute disgrace. Dirty cheaply paneled walls, the toilet flushed...

I stayed here years ago but this time was a nightmare. A bent, used Acupuncture needle was sticking out of the filthy area rug. Dr Burton never apologized but stated he was not liable because we didn't step on the needle. If we did, he stated he would provide us with a tetanus shot. There were two incredibly uncomfortable padded...

The door code did not work for me and no one answered the phone or email. I ended up having to make other arrangements. I contacted them multiple times since for a refund and still haven't heard back.

There is a really bad door code system that you need to enter 4 times to get to your room. We got stock outside in the middle of the night with the kids for 2 hours. Very unpleasent and stressful situation. Nobody was present at the reception to talk to and the number to reach someone was always busy. They...

Great location to the metro and a quiet street for Brooklyn. The office is run on a dentist hours so you better keep an eye out on your in- box and don't expect a reply to happen after hour. Remember dentist hours. The code is tricking on both doors but it's a very secure place. The interior is rather funking...

Location is good for accessing the Metro, dodgy when coming back at night. Nostrand station grubby and very crowded. Wouldn't bring my daughter. Accessing the door code very tricky as the number code sent by email (did not receive) and being from down under in the air when it would have reached my inbox. Office run from a dentist's practice...

I stayed in The Missing Lantern in September of 2015 during a weeklong trip to New York. Overall it was a very good stay, well priced, well sized, well maintained, and a true Brooklyn experience nonetheless. I'd definitely advise people to stay here especially if they want to experience Brooklyn through a Brownstone or in an Authentic Caribbean section of...
