I stayed here by my self on business through a discount app. First, awesome hotel, lobby, and restaurant upstairs, would highly recommend for anyone under 40. That said, the room bathroom setup was terrible, I could never stay here with my wife and we stay in a lot of hotels in NYC. You can see through the frosted glass and...

Pod 39 was small just like all the reviews read. But the layout of the room makes great use of the space and I never felt like I was cramped. I was a solo traveler on this particular trip. There isn't much in the way of amenities. If your idea of a good time is going to a hotel and...

Upon arrival was greeted by friendly and helpful staff. There was a $20 per night deposit fee required which I received back into my account within 10 days after checking out. Room was smaller much than expected but contemporary, clean and tidy with un suite shower/toilet. Beds were comfortable, lifts to rooms were quick and sufficient. Nice roof top view...

The reviews were good, and my experience was in line with past reviews. I thought the bed was excellent, the shower pretty unique and the space was just right for a single adult. The elevators were speedy and the reception friendly. The staff in general were helpful and happy. The value for the price was excellent. It will be on...

Contemporary Euro-hotel with the basics. Bathroom, bed, and flat screen. Clean and newly-remodeled with three elevators. Staff very accommodating. Next to Salvation Taco, which is awesome. Great location-few blocks from Grand Central station.

Loved my stay at Pod 39. Value for money was exceptional especially considering the great location, just a few blocks from Grand Central and the hotel itself was very nice. Rooms might not be the biggest but everything anyone travelling solo or with a partner could hope for. Very modern and clean, staff was helpful and very easy to get...

The pods were clean and the hotel was super cool. Great location to be if you want to stay in Manhattan! Great places to eat nearby including Scotty's diner! Close to the Chrysler building and Grand Central Station. From the rooftop you can see the Empire State Building + Chrysler Building. Pod 39 also has breakfast, lunch and dinner. We...

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...

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.
