            • The rooftop view was amazing and queens bridge was spectacular. Ravel hotel was fantastic and service was great. The beds were super comfortable, on a downside the breakfast was poor and not worth the money, the sweet Thai wings were really good.

              Location is very bad, rooms need a bit of updating, some cracks on walls as well as some visibly dirty walls.

              View of manhattan obstructed + very loud / noisey, our cab from ProspectHeights in Brooklyn was less than $20 from the LowerEastSide was $15 and decor very poor, shower leaked and air conditioning was very noisy. The elevators were dirty and didn't work properly.

              For far cheaper than a tiny old hotel room in manhattan and the furniture and seating also appeared dusty.

            • Lovely view from the roof of the city and good luck Ravel Hotel staff. A bathroom should be enclosed.

              Room looked very old.
