"Pod 39 - Greatest Value in Midtown East"
I stay at the Pod 39 nearly every time I am in NYC for business. You can't beat the location, the proximity to Grand Central Station, and the overall vibe of the hotel. One of my favorite places to stay in NYC!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed in the city due to snow storm. Overall very happy with Pod 39. Low price, easy check in and check out. Room small, but clean and well designed. Only negative was sound form HVAC system of adjacent building (stayed in room 1322)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really good hotel"
Rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. I use this hotel as my "regular" for business trips. It is an excellent value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"2night N.Y. City getaway"
I was plesently surprised. My sister and I had 2 single rooms with privet baths. My room was in great shape. My sister's room was not. Dirty sheets, a strong lingering colone smell. It would seem like the room was not cleaned, or not cleaned properly. Clean sheets were gotten. We worked on airing out the room. The staff was very responsive. What is […] needed is closer monerting of the same standards for every room. I would recommend Pod39 to friends with the hope that any unevenness in the level of room cleanlynes is being corrected.

"Fits the bill"
If you are in NYC and just need a clean, safe, efficient and reasonably priced place to sleep, this is it. Rooms are very snug, but the bed is comfortable and the glass partitioned bathroom is nicely appointed. WiFi worked well. Perfect for the traveler who is out and about all day, not hanging out in a hotel room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed here with my daughter overnight returning from Iceland. the staff was pleasant and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable but a little small. The hotel atmosphere was great for my 27 year old daughter (upscale hostel), but I did not feel uncomfortable in any way. It was centrally located, just a few blocks away from grand central station. […] I would definitely stay there again, and would consider it for more than one night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"This is a great little hotel"
If you can adapt to staying in a very small room, this is a fabulous hotel. I stay here often and really love it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great NYC Value."
Pod39 is a fun and cool little hotel. Overall, our stay was great. The rooms are small, but very comfortable, and clean. My only complaint was the elevator noise. Our room was located right next to the main elevators, and you could hear them rumble.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quick NY getaway"
This place was awesome. 2 thumbs up. Will be coming back to stay when the rooftop is open for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small room is what I wanted, EXTREMELY clean"
Pod 39 was perfect. I would love to stay there again. Neighborhood is great -- try Champion Cleaners if you need dry cleaning, Chicken Provencale, and the breakfast place on 3rd Ave. Avoid D'Agostino's.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in a good location"
The rooms are, well, tiny. But do you really come to New York to spend a lot of time in the hotel? the location is great -- a few blocks from Grand Central and the subway as well as the pick-up point for the Airport Express. There are multiple restaurants and diners in the neighborhood. The staff was excellent and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"$$$$$$ FOR A BUNK BED!"
Way too expensive for a bunk bed room!!!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Salvation Taco...why not?"
Didn't know what to expect. Pleasantly surprised. Something about the design suggested German Expressionist a la the 1920s. Yet the facilities and comfort were distinctly 21st century.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and clean stay"
Room is nice and clean. Very small though so don't expect a lot of roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Other stays at POD 39 much better."
Hotel did not provide extra blankets - very cold night. Heating system wanting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small but comfortable"
The location was great and so was the room! Very contemporary. Unfortunately I became sick and could not enjoy my visit to New York but the location was close to all the action.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Make the best on a budget"
Cute, budget friendly, customer service friendly, simple with big city look, charm, and elegance all on a budget. The size of rooms won't matter if you appreciate New York's culture and lifestyle. Feel like a real Manhattanite. :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved my stay. The room was clean, quiet (even though I was next to the elevators) and cozy. Staff super friendly,always always smiling and helpful/knowledgeable. Salvation Taco is a happy place to chill with amazing food... and for the early birds or late owls, there is Scotties Diner down the street with 24 hours delivery...even under snow! I will […] be coming back! Thank you! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Functional and affordable"
It was great for a trip where we only returned to the hotel at night to sleep. It was a very functional design, without much excess. The sliding glass bathroom door was a little strange, and not very effective. Other than that it was just what I was looking for, and at a reasonable price. It was also a great location, within walking distance of Grand […] Central Station. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Price and Great Hotel for NYC"
I love the price and therefore love this hotel. Nothing fancy but very nice, clean and in a great neighborhood for NYC. Rooms are very small but who cares you are just sleeping there. This was my second stay with my wife and it was perfect. Great value for NYC.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not too big, not to small but just right"
This place reminds me of my trip to Japan, the hotel rooms are small but set up in such that feel roomy. Also, very modern and cool rooftop. Defiantly will come stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Efficient, practical, accessible to walking and transportation great lobby restaurant an easy hotel to just sleep over and take a shower and then roaming in the great Apple!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
FunGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It is just what you need and nothing extra. The restaurant is great although a bit pricey.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Couples trip to NYC"
My girlfriend and I stayed at Pod 39 since it had affordable rates and a decent location within Manhattan. You are three blocks south of Grand Central, which allows you to quickly jump anywhere in the city, yet the neighborhood was quiet and low-key. The rooms are nicely decorated and provide just the right amount of space for a short stay without feeling […] cramped. Our personal favorite was the rainfall showerhead, which had surprisingly awesome water pressure. The staff was always friendly- greeting us as we came and went. We both agreed that we would consider staying here for any future trips to NYC. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great price, clean and comfortable"
I was happily surprised to find this hotel to be immaculately clean and very thoughtfully designed. Yes, my Queen room was tiny, but there was space for two carry-on bags to be easily accessible, and room for a large bag under the platform bed. Bed was quite firm but comfortable, pillows only so-so. I left the ventilator fan on all night and did not […] hear any noise from the street or hall. The hotel is popular with young international visitors, has a friendly vibe. I hate the semi-frosted glass door to the bathroom, but that seems to be the trend everywhere. I would stay here again happily. Only 3 blocks from Grand Central and its many subway lines. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small but mighty."
room was very small, but perfectly outfitted for one. Very comfortable and pleasant, great value in NYC.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Several times and I'm still going back"
I like this hotel very much but have twice experienced rooms that seem to be located under giant fans or furnaces so that there is a lot of machine noise. Also, the sleek modern taps would benefit from direction arrows indicating hot and cold.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price and location, POD 39 is perfect. I can't wait to return. The staff is friendly and having a Mexican restaurant is an added bonus!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap midtown that doesn't look rundown. YAY!"
Small hotel, but good enough especially in terms of location, price and standard. I've stayed in some real crummy hotels in NYC for more $, so this is a little gem. Will stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time, the hotel was really nice. Only thing we were missing was a fridge. But the room was really nice, really small so definitely just for sleeping, but that was all we needed. And the staff was reakky friendly and helpful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great location! we loved it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Perfect Pod"
Perfect hotel! Stayed with my best friend and we had such a wonderful time. Perfect neighborhood, and only 2 miles from Central Park!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Amazing. Great location. Easy to get to. Room is a little tight. Reasonably priced. It's well worth it for New York.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Add heaters to the rooftop bar to open all year long.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was WAY smaller than I expected!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Winter Weekend Getaway"
A great find for us for a fun overnight in the city. Easy walking distance to Grand Central and everything we needed was right in the neighborhood. Pod 39 was comfortable, clean, and felt like our home away from home. We'll be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location! Location! Location!"
Location! You cannot beat the price for the location. Close to 5th Ave and Time Square, Broad Way, etc. The room itself is tiny. But you will spend most of the time outside the room. The room is however very clean. Enjoyed my stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean rooms, fair price, nice people, slept well."
First off, having worked in customer service for quote some time, I was impressed by the people. Each time I called with questions, I got the same pleasant, professional experience. Upon arrival, my human interaction was just as pleasant in person. It's very rare to see such professionalism from such a young staff. The location in Manhattan is just […] off the beaten path which seemed to eliminate the noise usually heard a few blocks West. My buddies and I came in town for a Knicks game. We slept well and had simple and innovative amenities like bunk beds - each with their own television. The small space is designed very well to maximize comfort and eliminate claustrophobia. One of my friends compared the room to a cruise ship cabin. The bath towels could be bigger. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
No complaints whatsoever. Got a single room with a double bed and private bathroom. Very clean and cozy. Its small but thats the ide, and great price $95c $116 with tax etc Def recommendGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you don't mind sleep tight it's a great Hotel."
Great location; it's within walking distance to the famous Fifth Ave, Times Square and the metro lines; However I've seen dolls houses bigger than the rooms, I'm only 5'7 & 185 lbs and my wife is tiny so If was not a problem but if you're a big guy this is not the hotel for you you won't be able to take a shower, sleep and walk around the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"For someone without big luggage"
The room might be too small if you have a big luggage but it is super clean and big enough to relax. I loved this place and absolutely will stay again if I visit New York.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A hit minus the caffeine high!"
Pod 39 turned out to be the perfect capsule hotel for our last minute whirlwind New York trip. Centrally located, no nonsense, cut to the chase kind of a comfort zone perfect for a good night's sleep and relaxation after a day of battling New York's people, transport, fellow tourists and sites. The proximity to Grand Central, Bryant Park, and Times […] Square was an added bonus. I really appreciated the hassle free check in process and the daily housekeeping. On the flip side, both my wife and I felt that the room would have been so much more welcoming with the presence of an electric kettle or a small coffee maker. I understand cost cutting etc. but the hotel can provide guests with an initial beverage kit and make additional kits available for sale. Overall, a decent experience. I will come back here again and recommend the Pod pad to others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great small place"
Great option for east side. Very close to Grand Central station. Convenient store at the corner, Grumpy Cafe 2 blocks up on Lexington ave. Small rooms as advertised but with excellent service, very convenient and excellent bar/restaurant in hotel. Best Moscow Mule and Dirty martini in townGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for NYC weekend getaway"
We went to the city for a quick weekend trip during the holiday season. We booked about a month out and went with Pod39 due to the nice price point. We had a schedule-packed 2 days where we'd spend little to no time in the room itself so we also booked given Pod39's super convenient location (5-minute walk from Grand Central). The room was as advertised […] (full bed, clean, wifi), and it met our needs just fine. The hotel staff was very courteous and though we arrived around 10 the morning of our stay and were hoping to simply drop off our bags, the staff offered to see if a room was already available (one was and we were able to check in early). There's a restaurant (Salvation Taco) connected to the hotel's lobby. Full bar. Nice perk/convenience to have when staying at the hotel. We'd definitely stay again, assuming the price is right, as the hotel met literally all of our needs while in the city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel for short stay"
Very clean, great experienceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room we stayed is very small (I've never seem a smaller room --- it's Ok for a young couple without big bags), besides that everything was great, clean and with new furniture. The shower in bathroom is a plus (good pressured hot water). The hotel has partnership with a nearby parking lot (just don't forget to stamp your card), which makes it very […] cheap for parking --- I paid $25/day. Location is good: walking distance to Empire State Building, 5th ave, and others; it is a longer a walk to Central Park, take the subway unless you prefer an 1h walk (with lots of things to see in the way...). There is also plenty of restaurants nearby. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mini bunk for couple is not a romantic idea."
Well we stayed in a mini bunk. It was quite mini for a couple. We inevitably bumped here and there as we move and bend over. The room is quite clean and the hotel location is very convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
