"Charming hotel but with street noise"
The paper factory has charming decor and is a nice unique hotel. The main reason for my average review is the street noise permeating into the room. I was on the street level, and the truck noise was on going through out the night. Also, the in room heating/ac didn't seem to work, so the air was always slightly warm and stale, however my friends in other rooms didn't seem to have that issue. On the plus side, the front desk was friendly and helpful.
"Great spot a stone's throw from Manhattan"
First up do not let the location put you off. I have stayed in hotels in downtown Manhattan that have taken considerably longer to get into Midtown than this hotel. While the immediate surrounds may not be super attractive, it is literally on the doorstep of the subway and in under 10 minutes you can be stepping out at Central Park. There are also some nice little restaurants not too far away if you know where to look. In exchange for staying off Manhattan you get a lot more hotel room at a much better price. We had a large room which was super comfortable with lots of natural light - we were there for 7 nights so they may have given us a bit of an upgrade. Plenty of cupboard and drawer space, iron and ironing board, coffee machine, and a huge bathroom with loads of bench space and a big shower - all of which made a longer stay considerably more comfortable. The only reason for the 4 stars rather than 5 is that I think the F&B offering could be better. The bar always seemed to be closed and the cafe seemed to be selling pastries and sandwiches that were several days old and overpriced. Given that there is not much in the immediate vicinity I think guests would appreciate a bar that was open until midnight (or if not, at least a minibar or room service). I have now stayed at both Paper Factory and the Boro Hotel down the road. While the Boro has better views of Manhattan and a nice rooftop bar, the room itself at the Paper Factory was far more comfortable and the position far more convenient for the subway, so for me, the Paper Factory is the one I would come back to.
"More an amusement parc for design than beautiful design"
The Paper Factory is a 125 room hotel in an old paper factory in Long Island. It looked very great on the pictures but for us it was in practise a little too much designed. You felt it was not natural designed but more created funny things. Long Island is pretty far from Williamsburg by subway because you need to go first to Manhattan and than back. The neighberhood is still very industrial and not so many nice spots to hang out. Reception employes where not really friendly. Breakfast they where friendly. The room is very big. For the money and location it is overrated. Would nog come back althought it is not a bad hotel at all.
Great place to stay. Fantastic views of manhattan. Easy access to Manhattan and Brooklyn. Recommend. And great position to visit Williamsburg The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Local restaurants and bars decent and slightly cheaper than Manhattan.
