Newly Added Budget Hotels in Brooklyn, New York | RatesToTravel


brick hotel building of Hotel Indigo

Affordable hotels, like Hotel Indigo, are abundant in Brooklyn.

Many tourists flock to Manhattan for a Big Apple vacation, and while there’s lots of the New York hustle and bustle there (Times Square, anyone?), there’s still plenty of other exciting things to do in the outer boroughs. Even more important for Cheapos, you can save big by staying in the many budget hotels outside of Manhattan.

Brooklyn, with its iconic Brooklyn Bridge and seemingly endless options for cool, laid-back food, drink and entertainment, is a great option. You’re bound to find some incredible deals on accommodation here, too, and you can still access Manhattan quickly and cheaply via the subway.

To narrow down your choices of affordable hotels in this borough, we chose some of our favorite budget hotels in Brooklyn, specifically in the popular neighborhoods of Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Downtown Brooklyn, to add to our New York guide.

So choose your hotel and read up on our New York tips to have a fun Big Apple trip like a true Cheapo.
