Loved the area within the heart of Manhattan. Daily towels are changed and bed made. Clean and very affordable. Toiletries available. Staff are very courteous and helpful. Easy check in and so with checking out.
This was my second time in a POD hotel and was amazing the hole experience in the POD51, the staff is super friendly, always caring about us, super cool ambience, people, the neighborhood, so near to metro stations, good food around, I can keep going...only I can say, is wait me there next year! PS: especial thanks to Alba, the second floor cleaner lady, she was an angel on my path!
Price was too high because an event at the UN was held in the city during our stay. If the price was lower than $200/night, will recommend our friends to stay at the hotel if they plan to visit the city for a vacation.
Pod51 Hotel New York provided me a delightful two-night experience in "tiny hotel" living. The price and location near the conference I was attending were the reasons for my choice. The staff was friendly and helpful! I felt safe walking at night in the neighborhood. The hotel is conveniently near MTA stations, a 24 hour drugstore/grocery and restaurants as well as faster foods. Every aspect of Pod51 Hotel NY is effectively and tastefully designed for space. The 94 square feet in my single-bed hotel room was clean, well stocked and sufficient with a sink. The room was quiet. The air was refreshing with easy to use A/C. I had two good nights sleep. I had no waits with the four shared bathrooms and enjoyed the walk-in showers. The hotel is beautifully maintained and pleasant. I would stay at POD51 Hotel NY again!…
My trip ended up being frustrating every minute because the shared bath single room I booked did not have a table to work with despite the ads claiming it. When my room was finally changed, the Wi-Fi in the second room was too bad to work so I ended up using my own hotspot and paying for Wi-Fi on my phone. Would not recommend at all unless you're out of options.
The price and cleanliness for this kind of location is absolutely efficient. Can get to most of the things midtown and uptown by walking and biking, and subways are convenient for longer trips if needed.
Hidden fee prices racked up a lot. Be aware of what was provided. Was expecting a lot more for what they provided but I guess that’s idea of the whole concept. Good location to go around mid town but the price impacted my decision
Location: can’t be beat. Reasonable prices (by Manhattan standards.) Well maintained, clean, friendly, a shaded patio area as well as a rooftop patio with a great view. Greenacre park across the street is reason enough for staying at the Pod 51 alone. The shared bathroom could be an issue for some but I never had any issues.
Next time I will ask for a less noisy room. Thank you. Very good location close to my activities, size very convenient for my needs, clean, modern I like that is recently? renovated. Very noisy room. I got a headache.
Pod 51 was a super location for me in Midtown Manhattan! It is easy to travel to all parts of Manhattan from the location. It feels very safe. I stayed in a room with a full size bed, and it was exactly as advertised. The room was clean, and the desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The Streetwise tour was a great added benefit. I will be returning.:)
