Friendly, simple, central and a good comfy bed. Half price of the 'special' travel industry rate I got for a chain hotel down the road. Great Mexican restaurant/bar downstairs. Also close to the first stop on 41st street for the NYC Airporter shuttle from JFK. All you need for your New York stay.

I was very pleased with my stay at the Pod 39. Hotel facilities are very modern and while rooms were compact, everything is well thought and space is well used. Room was very clean, bathroom had a powerful and amazing shower. Wifi is free and very fast. Close to everything, Grand Central was a 5-10min walk and Time Square a... More

Nice rooms which were kept clean regularly. The hotel is located at an excellent location, to explore the city. Close to the grand central station and to the subway. The wifi was very fast and the staff was really friendly and helpful.

Excellent , everything you need . Yes the rooms are very small but perfectly planned to maximise the space . Really friendly and very helpful staff. Great location with only 5 min walk from Grand Central which pretty much links you up to everywhere. And possibly the best feature is its roof top open bar / cocktail bar with views... More

I stayed here during the UN general assembly. I love the location, it's 5minutes walk to the grand central station as well as a few minutes walk to the UN. The rooms are quite small but they are kept clean regularly. I like the boutique feel to it and loved hanging out at the rooftop bar. Free smarties are available... More

Loved staying at Pod 39!. While the room was small (dorm room) it encouraged us to get out and explore the area and attractions. The room had a window to the street that allowed natural light and for more expansive space we went to the rooftop bar for its lovely view. All the staff was friendly and helpful from the... More

Clean, friendly, great location. Would highly recommend this hotel. Fast wifi. It takes about 15-20 minutes to walk to Times Square. Close to some good restaurants and it offers a shuttle to the airport at a reasonable price.

Didn't realise my trip to NY coincided with UN and the pope, so nothing else left. Having said that, I'd stay again. Very convenient for mid-town, friendly service and welcome. Free wifi, comfy bed, powerful shower and handy USB plugs for charging everything. I don't need anything else for a 1 night business trip.

Perfect for me. Love the hotel. Good staff. Love the surrounding. Good food, laundry, grocery are within reach. I will definitely come back. I would recommend you to stay here. Only one improvement, if hotel can charge to the credit card when we make the booking.

I stayed for 9 nights, the first 2 in a single room, then changing to a bunk room when my daughter joined me for a week together in NYC. Both rooms perfect for us - comfy beds, hot shower, quiet, window that opened. Need efficient use of the room space, but that forces you to be creatively tidy! Not a... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
