December is an "expensive" month to visit NY and Pod 39 can help you in lowering your cost. The hotel is central and the atmosphere is lively. It is not a luxurious hotel: it has actually very very basic small rooms. It has many places for eat and drink nearby. If you need the hotel for basic sleep then it...

Booked this hotel really last minute at a reasonable price. I was travelling solo and arrived on a late flight. The hotel staff were really accommodating with my late arrival and I checked in very easily past midnight.The room had everything I needed for a short stay, no need for adapters as there are USB plugs to charge all types...

The hotel is literally designed for young people. The reasons that made me think of are free wi-fi(rare in NYC) ,small but functional rooms, cool interior design and most importantly super helpful and NYC expert concierge STEVIE. He has been very helpful throughout our whole holiday.Love you man! I would definitely suggest everyone to stay at Pod 39.

This place is fun and clean. The rooms are small but that's part of the fun. If you want to stay at a nice place and want to not spend a lot of money this is the place to stay. If you are expecting a roomy space this is not the place for you. The only con to this place...

Hey Coote83 Thank you for the awesome write up! Glad you enjoyed your time with us. The only thing that is different between 39 and 51 is the share bathrooms. At 39 all rooms come with your own personal washroom. Good to hear about your fun experience. I hope that you'll choose to stay with us again. Cheers Timothy Lau...

This was my 2nd visit to Pod 39. The facilities in the room are clean, modern and basic, but that's all you need if you're touring the city. The en suite shower is ideal for cleaning up after a day (or night) on the town! The location of Pod 39 is excellent for getting around. Just a couple of blocks...

The pod 39 was in an excellent location and its budget friendly price makes it unbeatable! It was a 10 minute walk from Grand Central Station and about 15 minutes from Times Square. I thought in this location that it would be very noisy at night but we didn't hear a thing and slept very well! On top of that...

We are a Spanish couple between 35 and 40 years. We visited New York in early December 2016, and stayed in this hotel 10 days. When we arrived, almost all was within expected. Comfortable bed, ordinary room cleaning (eg. when we arrived the shower drain was full of hairs) and the soap bottles in the room are 3 small bottles...

Hello Jordi M It was a pleasure speaking with you regarding what had happen during your first few days with us. When we spoke, I could feel your frustration and I can sympathize how upsetting this was. As a hotel, we took responsibility for our mistake.

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.
