Came here on a solo trip for a few days, and if I ever do it again, I’d come back here. Rooms are clean, minimalistic, and the windows are huge, letting in lots of natural light. It’s close to a major subway line and just a street away from Times Square. Nice place just to have a bed and a shower, especially if you plan to be out exploring most of the time. Sahar was friendly and informative at the front desk.

I have a fully flexible reservation for June that states it can be cancelled with 24 hours notice. I made this reservation directly on the POD Times Square website. I have not yet paid anything, but my credit card was taken to hold the reservation. I attempted to cancel the reservation on their website, but the website says it can't cancel the reservation and gives an email address and a phone number to use to cancel. I have tried to call that phone number, as well as the phone number on my reservation email, many times and there is never any answer, it just rings and rings. I have emailed the email address on the website, replied to my reservation email, and emailed some direct emails that I saw in other Tripadvisor reviews, all requesting to cancel my reservation. I have included my reservation number in all correspondence. I have been unable to get any response and I presume my reservation has not yet been cancelled. This is completely unacceptable! There needs to be some way to contact POD in order to cancel or modify a reservation that I made on their own website!

My phone fell behind the bed so I have to get up the mattress to pick it up, and, SURPRISE! I found toilet papers with other people fluids IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC, that’s so inaceptable, YOU DONT CLEAN THE ROOMS, probably you don’t desinfect it either, now I don’t fell secure in this hotel with no biosecurity standards. CLEAN HAVE TO BE A MUST.

Hello Santiagor317 We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. After being closed for well over a year, Pod officially re-opened it's door once again on May 5th. May I ask what room did you stay in? All guest rooms hasn't been occupied for well over a year, and was deep cleaned prior to re-opening. Perhaps you may of mistaken for another hotel? Again thank you again for your feedback, we will definitely investigate how this can happen. We are taking all necessary steps and protocols to ensure guest safety and staff safety. Cleanliness is everyone's concern and we don't take this lightly. Cheers Timothy Lau Director of Front Office
