Stayed here for 5 days at the end of June but this adventure started in January. Reserved a queen room for one price and a few weeks later I noticed a drop in price. I called and it was fixed quickly. Check-in was smooth and the lobby was jumping (people lined up for the taco bar and rooftop bar). The... More

This hotel is centrally located, very close to Grand Central Station. Instead of paying for a car service to the airport, I decided to pay a little more and enjoy an evening in NYC. It was easily walkable from GCS, even with my large suitcase. The staff were very friendly and check in/checkout were a breeze. As previous reviews had... More

We stayed at Pod 39 for a week. We chose this hotel because it was fairly priced taking into account that it's New York City. It is not bang in the centre of the most touristy parts of Manhattan, but not too far away either. The rooms are small and the bathroom is basically a glass enclose within the room,... More

For a special Daddy-Daughter trip my 11 year old wanted to go to NYC. The sites on her to-do list were all south of Central Park so finding affordable, convenient hotels was paramount. In reviewing the available rooms we saw the Pod hotels. They looked interesting and were comparatively affordable for mid-town Manhattan so we booked a micro-sized bunk room... More

Checked in around 11.30 AM, and where other hotels usually only have rooms available after 14.00 PM, my room was immediately available, and they upgraded my single pod to a queen pod! Room was clean, modern, and had all the necessities I needed, including a hairdryer. Location was also great, only a 5-7 minute walk to Grand Central, and had... More

This is a clean, inexpensive hotel without the unnecessary frills that I rarely use in a hotel anyway. The rooms are tiny so at times you and your partner need to negotiate your movements carefully. The hotel is quiet, very clean, and the beds are comfortable which is all I want in a hotel. There's a fabulous rooftop patio for... More

The Pod39 is located in the Murray Hill residential neighbourhood, which is quiet and not touristy. It's close to Lexington Avenue and a strip of restaurants and a diner and good bagel shop for breakfast. In the other direction 2nd Avenue has a supermarket a few blocks south. Buses run uptown on 2nd (I took one from the Bowery/Chinatown area)... More

I have stayed in a number of inexpensive hotels in Manhattan and all had problems of some kind, but I thoroughly enjoyed Pod 39. Some highlights: 1. Super location, convenient to Grand Central Station, lot of restaurants, easy access to subway. 2. Great room design! I had a single pod and it was so efficient. I can't comment on what... More

Not the best, not the worst. It's great. At least for solo travelers. The rooms are small but if you're a traveler who is planning to see NY and spend most of your time outside, then this hotel is a great fit. You'll find most of the necessary items inside the room including a safe to keep your valuables inside... More

Stayed here for 5 nights, booked this due to location & price. Top marks to staff for their friendliness & helpfulness, they went out of their way to ensure we had a comfortable stay, and we did. The rooftop bar was ok, quite crowded and we didn't try the restaurant downstairs so can't comment on it. Wifi was good, plenty... More
