Great location, only way to get a hotel cheaper in this area is to use Air BnB and split it between a massive group. Lots of neat storage places considering the size of the room. Great customer service, even when storing my bag for me.

This little jewel is as hard to find from the street as a pearl in a mine. Adjacent to Salvation Taco, it provides what is probably the best value for money in the mid-town of Manhattan. The rooms are extremely small to an American, but what they lack in size they more than make up in ameneties, cleanliness and most... More

As a veteran business traveler I have stayed under all conditions from the most luxurious to the barely tolerable, so have become quite low-maintenance when on my own, and especially on my own budget. Under those conditions, a five-night stay at Pod 39 suited my needs exactly -- clean, quiet, a small but adequate work table, a bare-pipe armoire to... More

As a sixty-three year old travelling with a teenager and sharing a bunk bed bed room of only 11 sq. meters, I was a bit apprehensive about what to expect. I needn’t have been - it was terrific. Pod 39’s location is the perfect base from which to explore New York. Access to everything is unbelievably easy and the hotel... More

We stayed six nights in Pod39 during our stay in NY. The room was rather small, but functional and nice (and clean!). Bathroom was seperated from the room with a frosted glass wall. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and gave us good advice about sights and things to do. The hotel is only a couple of blocks from... More

This hotel was average but the location was useful because it's only a walk away from 5th Avenue, which is a very popular place to shop as it has dozens of stores. The hotel also has a bar by the reception so you can order drinks and food, and have fun right in the hotel! And for all those Starbucks... More

As might be imagined hotels are not inexpensive in New York. I had stayed at a Pod hotel when it was new several years ago and decided to give it another try as the rate was reasonable. The woman at the desk was very friendly and allowed me to upgrade to a larger room for a small upcharge. However, the... More

Nice hotel, tiny clean rooms, good roof view. Personnel very polite and helpful especially Maria and Ariana! Ask these ladies what you need or want and they will definitely help you! It's also has a good placement- 10 minutes to Time Square and Empire State bldg.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
