We stayed at the lovely Pod 51 Hotel for ten nights. It was a holiday visit to the Big Apple. Having stayed at another Pod Hotel in NY previously, I booked this one without thinking twica. We toook a "Full Pod" room which has a double bed, a private en-suite batheroom and even a little writing desk for my laptop. The room is small, but has everything you need. With NYC prices, you cannot beat this deal!! The hotel is centrally located. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The room was spotlessly clean. The roof terrace was lovely, with great views, day and night. All in all, we have only good things to say. Great NYC Hotel!! Excellent Deal!!
My daughter had booked into this hotel near the UN. When her conference was cancelled she decided to make a holiday of the non-refundable trip. So I booked in as well. The room was clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. There were lots of good restaurants nearby, subway was easy to get to, and we felt at home and safe in the neighbourhood. The staff were friendly and helpful, and my room was cleaned very well. Finally, there was a $20 shuttle to the Airport - that was really convenient on Friday, as I left.
Just come back from a 4 night stay in pod 51 with my 8 year old daughter, after reading some reviews i was abit anxious. Well there was no need, staff were very friendly, check in quick, rooms are small but cosy, we had a double with private bathroom. Roof terrance was lovely with amazing veiws at night. Fresh sheets and towls daily was lovely. Hotel was clean, staff were friendly and very good with my little one and being on the 9th floor there was minimal noise. I very raley write reviews but i do when i think they are deserved. Thank you pod 51 we had a lovely time.
The room only had one power outlet that worked which was in the bathroom. The two small tvs and all other outlets did not work at all. Not only were we in the dark during our stay, but the front desk had promised multiple times that they would fix this. The issue was never resolved, and we were actually charged a late checkout fee even though we requested late checkout. The manger at the front desk was mad at us and told us that "there is no such thing as a late checkout" even though they advertise this. All in all, we paid more money that we were supposed to stay in a dark hotel with minimal service.
Booked via last minute.com for a room in December as part of a 4 night city break. Having read the tripadvisor reviews prior to booking, I decided on this hotel. We got the airlink and subway from the airport even though late at night, the subway stop is literally 5 mins walk from the hotel, which was a lot cheaper than a taxi. Room was clean, small but adequate for city break as didn’t spend much time in the room or hotel. Only comment would be that the shower is a glass door into the bedroom, which wasn’t any issue for us, but may be a problem for anyone staying with a friend or family member who isn’t their partner. Hotel has a small cafe downstairs which we didn’t try, so can’t comment. Upstairs has a small sun deck and chairs with a good view, probably nice in the summer! Hotel reception were efficient checking us in and out and looked after our bags in the storage room due to us having an evening flight. Ideal location, 10 walk to rockafella and 15-20 mins to Times Square! Would definitely stay at this hotel again if choosing a budget friendly city stay. …
