It's true the room is tiny. But it is clean, functional and relatively quiet. There is a bar downstairs which is quite nice, they serve interesting cocktail. Didn't try the food though.
But the nicest thing of the Pod 39 is its rooftop terrace with a gorgeous view on the Empire State Building. Apart that, the hotel is well located, at about 5mn walk from Central Station.

Spent one week in NYC for holiday. Hotel is walking distance from Grand Central so it makes easy to move everywhere in Manhattan. Room was clean but pretty small. Nice lobby services including a cheap and efficient transfer to airport. Amazing terrace bar with landscape on Manhattan. Nice bar and restaurant at ground floor. Not really cheap but in line with NYC Average.

Stayed a week in May 2013 the room had two bunk beds with individual television screens, the rooms were clean BUT very cramped for more than one person, the hotel had a bar on the roof which had great views. Location was good short walk to Central Station, plenty of food establishments within short walk, laundry was only a short walk away up a side street.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Pod 39, the hotel is in a great location for visiting many of the must see sights. Hotel was very clean and good value for money. Sadly a number of niggly issues, no long mirror or mirror outside of the bathroom. The air conditioning system was noisy. Some staff were very helpful although a couple let the hotel down where you got the impression you were putting them out. All in all great location and value for money!

Stayed in a double pod for three nights and loved the room. Everything is clean, modern and well designed for the small space. Location is excellent and there are cheap breakfast options around the corner at places like bagel express. The review would be a 5/5 however I didn't much like the shower because of the ceiling mounted shower-head and the intense water pressure. It wouldn't stop me from staying there again though. In summary: cheap+clean+modern=more travelling money!

I have stayed in pod 39 hotel and I've found amazing being close to the Empire State and Chrysler buildings and many other attraction of New York. It is on 39th street. Fabulos. Wonderful price, good bad room and bathroom.
