Nice hotel in a good location. The bigger room with the queen size bed is absolutely worth paying more money for! Staff is always friendly. The only thing we missed was a kettle in the room so you can have a cup of tea in the morning and maybe a small fridge.

Hotel's Favourite
Located close to the Metro lines, the Pod 51 hotel offers an excellent stay for the price. While there are no amenities in the room (such as a coffee maker, although coffee can be purchased in the lobby), there is a hair dryer and shampoo/conditioner. The room is surprisingly well laid out for a small space, with plenty of hooks, a small safe, and a roomy shower.

There's room for improving the acoustic, besides that, everything is wonderful, especially the location! Room is pretty clean, beds are comfy, bathrooms are shared, but enough for the entire floor. Pretty nice experience overall~

I loved to stay in the best town of the world. The venue is in the heart of Manhatten and umbeatable. The rooms are straight ok. The air condition is very old and took some time to find the right temperature in outside cold nights. Sharing bathrooms are very ok. Service was nice. I can recommend this hotel for expressing NYC. Thanks.

Very nice location in the heart of Midtown. We stayed in a double room very clean and cozy with an external bathroom always clean and warm. Useful availability of shampoo/conditioner and shower gel in the shower. Loved this place, I’d surely recommend it!

The air conditioning had a noise every time was on and when it turn off made another noise. We couldn't sleep well. Wakes you up with the noise. The bed was hard and uncomfortable. We wouldn't rest well.

Have been staying here many years and loved the location, value and friendliness of staff! I always do a top corner queen and feel that is the only way to go. Sometimes loud and drunk people in hallway but if you call front desk it ends right away.

Great location with restaurants, cafes and supermarket nearby. Staffs are friendly and knowledgeable about the city. Rooms are small, and the bathrooms are shoe-box size. Don’t miss the rooftop…great view 👍

Visited as a couple for a week at end of October. Friendly staff and clean lobby on arrival. We expected the room to be small and was not disappointed, although the double bed was sideways to fit it in so made it awkward to comfortably sit and watch TV at the end of the day. Didn’t bother us too much as we were out all day every day and just needed a room to sleep. Due to the layout of the room (we had the full pod), it did mean that you had another method of entertainment in the form of either the shower or toilet being in full view to the whole room as they both shared the same door…fine for couples but might be awkward for families! Great rooftop deck on the 14th floor. Location was fantastic, just 10mins walk from Rockefeller Centre, 15mins from Times Square in 1 direction and Central Park in the other. Surrounded by some great cafes and restaurants too, with Greenacre Park just over the road. Only reason for dropping a star was the amount of noise we could hear through the room door from other guests stomping past and banging doors, and for the weird sideways bed.
