"Great 1 or 2 night stay."
Great location & great price. Perfect for short stays. The skyline is amazing from the Rooftop Lounge. My daughter & I really enjoyed our stay. Definitely will return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sheets smelled horrible"
The blanket smelled so bad, I had to put it under the bed during the night, then outside of the actual room in the morning. Absolutely unconscionable to have a guest endure that. If I could give 0 stars for this place, I would. There was also a window in the shower. Even though you can close the shades, it's like, really? A window in the shower.? The […] mirror in the shower is unique though, but so was the smell of those blankets. No amount of spray could make it better. Please take care of that problem if you want me to ever recommend this place for myself or others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good stay except for smell in room"
The room had a smell like maybe mildew or old cigarette smoke. Otherwise, it was a great location, comfortable bed, clean hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place to Sleep, Expensive Food & Drink"
Good choice, young vibe. Room is small (so is the price for NYC) but clean and very comfortable. Bathroom is cozy but the shower is great. Quiet -- never heard a peep from anyone next door. What little service was needed was very responsive. Food and beverage cost seemed high but rooftop and lobby restaurant were in high demand nevertheless. Recomm […] ended.

We just stayed for the Electric Zoo Festival. The place was perfect for what we needed it for, a place to crash after the festivities. I liked the bunk bed set up with dual tvs. It had a convenient restaurant located next door that had a dynamite brunch. Bathroom was spot on. I am curious if we could have gotten more for the money we spent which was […] comparably priced with other local hotels with the same star rating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Value at a Price"
I stayed at Pod 39 previously when it was new. Had been given a great room which was small but efficient. This visit - the first room was so small i could not roll in my luggage AND it didnt fit under the bed where there is planned storage. It also smelled like stinky shoes. I went to the front desk and the rep was hesitant to move me and offered to […] have house cleaning spray the room with chemicals after I had noted twice that I am asthmatic. The other rep quickly stepped in and provided an available room number. Howeve - this was not a no pet floor. The room still smelled bad but not as strong so I stayed. The second night a dog barked for over an hour at midnight and the staff did nothing to assist. Clearly - it is hard to maintain these rooms odor free. If you need a great rate - OK option. If you want to relax - pass. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fun & Hip"
I was wonderfully upgraded to a larger room without my knowing, until I entered the room. The room amenities were minimal, but in a good way, and clean. My room in particular was next to the elevators, so I could hear general hallway noise, but for the most part it was quiet. Loved the free in-room wifi. The shower area was the only thing I didn't really […] like. The rainfall shower head was modern, but I didn't like how it would get the whole bathroom floor wet. And the bath towels were very bare. They had the thickness and rough texture of hotel floor towels. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Grand Central"
Really appreciated how efficiently every inch of the hotel room was utilized. Enjoyed the restaurant and rooftop bar with family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room worked for me and my son. Bunk beds aren't for everyone. Bathroom was nice. Quite the party going on. A very happening scene in the lobby and bar.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"quick, easy, simple, no-hassle place to crash."
Was upgraded to a queen size upon check in. Turns out that room had some quirks. But overall, (as in any other room without these quirks), room was simple but not spartanm open bathroom with sliding glass door. As far as room quirks, it was right in front of the elevator, with my door having a 1/4" (~1cm) gap at the bottom It was easy to hear late night […] guests. I solved thisby rolling up a towel and laying it over the gap, but it only did so much. thankfully it did quiet down and wasnt an all night issue. Last thing was that the door deadbolt lock would not work becuase of the plate on the door was not cut correctly. There was still the manual rail lock, and even without the deadbolt the door locks when closed, just seemed strange. Overall, I'm satisfied and may stay here again.

"all you need at a reasonable price"
My room was very clean, comfortable, and equipped with everything one might possibly need. Even though I had the smallest type of room (a single bed), I did not feel it was too small because it was really very well organized and there was still plenty of room to move around. The bathroom is very stylish with glass doors and a modern shower. The staff […] was absolutely wonderful and even helped me scan some documents after Fedex and Staples failed to help. The view from the roof is amazing and should not be missed. I definitely recommend this hotel to everyone! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for a weekend getaway...."
If you plan on going to NYC for a weekend and will be out and about most of the time then this hotel is a good place to rest and shower. A lot of places to eat nearby. Within walking distance of midtown NYC. Room was clean and tidy. Staff was friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
While everything else about the hotel is great I found the rooms to be jsut too small. I almost tripped over the bed when I first walked in. The bed is just a couple of inches from the door. If you need to get to the other side of the room you have to crawl over the bed or walk between the bed and the desk. Which I found that I am too big for the space […] between the bed and the desk and I am 5'10 and 160lbs. I also do not think that they are using what space they have fully. There was, under the bed on the left hand side, space for one suitcase and a drawer for stuff. That is the name of the drawer. On the other side under the bed was just a wood. What they need to do is put a small refridgerator drawer underneath the other side. That way guest can have juice or a small breakfast. Also there is a collum in the rightside corner. They can put a dropdown ironing board and iron. A small mirowave is also needed. The bathroom is well designed but it almost looks like is larger the rest of the room.

Perfect hotel in prime location. Nice neighborhood. If you are young and single, the Mexican restaurant and rooftop terrace bar you will love! I was entertained watching all the 30 something's trying to make a love connection. My room was the tiny bunk bed room. It was very adequate especially since it was my 7 yr old and I. Nice stay for the pric […] e. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"nice room, great view, convenient to tour"
from the moment you walked in everyone working there couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. Room was small--hence the name "pod" but it worked. You're visiting a city and touring, doing business, whatever.. how much room do you need? Room always kept clean as well as public spaces.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Remember your repeat customers!"
I stay here almost every month and each time have requested a quiet room off the street as I come on business and need a good night's rest. Was then disappointed when I checked in to be put in a room on the street and to be told there was nothing else available that night. They did, however, move me to a quiet room the next night which was great. Just […] wished they knew me by now and knew my preferences. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"central location;exotic decor"
Enjoyed the hotel as a single. Rooms are funky and well maintained, guests are international, relatively affordable for New York. Service was great. Rooftop garden bar was a treat. The rooms are so small ( hence the name) that I am not sure I would have enjoyed sharing it with my spouse.No room to turn around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good bed, clean and great shower. Certainly not spacious, but great place to sleep and recharge at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay again"
Great location, great priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have stayed at Pod 39 a few times and love the hotel. The rooms are small but are everything you need and the shower is fantastic! Also the free wifi is a nice bonus. My only criticism is with the elevators. There is a lot of traffic between the restaurant and the rooftop bar with boozy non-hotel guests and they have full access to the other hotel […] floors.

"Tiny Room in Great Neighborhood"
Pros - Clean & safe room, comfortable bed, great neighborhood, nice staff, roof top bar, easy location, temp controlled a/c. Cons - too pricey for the micro tiny room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great design, better location!"
My wife and I spent a weekend and enjoyed this hotel. The rooms are standard for NYC but they are very intelligently designed. The location was outstanding and the people at the front desk were very helpful with all of our questions. Would definitely stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was very enjoyable and for the price we were so pleased. Thank you for a delightful experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location. Good hotel. Taco restaurant on the first floor is quite good and crowded. The rooms are small and a bit stuffy, but the air conditioners and the bathrooms work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"It's a pod. It's on 39th St. It's pod 39."
The room is comically, but pleasantly, everything you associate with the word pod. It reminded me of the Steven Wright joke, "I have to get an MRI next week... to see if I have claustrophobia."Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean room. Central to transportation and restaurants. Hopping bar downstairs. Would definitely stay here again. Only minus was skimpy towels and no wash cloth or iron but the hotel provided both upon request.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent clean hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great, Minihotel Option"
Room is a microhotel, but has all the modern conveniences. My husband and I opted for the bunk beds and our own TVs. Not super romantic, more dorm like with your own bathroom, modern and clean. Close to subway for easy access to city and we used uber for a $40 ride to Newark.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms are small but what else are you going to use them for? They're everything you need in a very efficient use of space. Style is unique, staff is friendly, and neighboring areas aren't so touristy and gives you a better glimpse of daily life in NY. The rooftop bar is a definite plus but skip "mexican" restaurant; a lot of price for a little bit […] of food. A rip off even by NY standards. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Staff was not helpful"
Okay room, okay location, but don't count on any help from the staff including answering basic questions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Nyc Trip"
My 11 year-old daughter and I spent three nights here and enjoyed every minute. The rooms were small but very functional and we slept very well. We didn't spend a lot of time in the room but when we were there were comfy. One thing I would suggest is that it would have been nice to have a mini refrigerator in the room to store food and drinks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Find if you have to stay in Manhattan"
My husband was attending the Writer's Digest conference so we had to be close to the Roosevelt hotel, where the conference was held. Pod 39 is just a few blocks away from the Roosevelt and we found it to be a great central location. It was so easy to hop on over to Grand Central Station and get anywhere from there. I walked to Central Park every day […] to run and it was a blast. The staff was super helpful and friendly - they even let us keep our bags there after we checked out and before our flight in the evening so we didn't have to drag them around while exploring. The room was the perfect size. We didn't need more than what we had and actually were expected a lot less space. The shower did leak water pretty easily but it all ended up on the tile floor, which is an easy clean up. Thank you so much for making our stay in Manhattan super easy!

"Great value during the summer"
My room was tiny but so am I . My only complaint was the level of noise the air conditioner made when it turned on. It also blew right on me. Other than that, the hotel is great, clean, safe and very affordable with a great restaurant attached and hip bar on the roof.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is nice.. Hip... Clean The room was too small but free wifi... great location... And low price will cover the size of the roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review

hotel staff as usual very friendly, room was on the small side, and bed not very comfortable.....area convenient for my event, son's wedding.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great, central accommoadtion"
It was perfect! Central, nice staff, clean and a rooftop bar!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great stay at Pod 39. The rooms are clean, comfortable and reasonably priced although small-but who wants to sit around their hotel room when you are in NYC. The shower was the highlight of the room and the free wifi is pretty nice too. The lobby and bars on the main floor and on the roof are very busy and there are a lot of boozy bar hoppers […] riding around on the elevators at night which isn't great. At night the elevators going from the lobby to rooftop bar shouldn't be able to access the hotel floors. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small room, great midtown location"
We went to New York for a 3-day getaway, and found this hotel to be perfect for our purposes. The rooms are tiny, but well-kept, and the location was great. I wouldn't recommend this hotel for anybody who likes to spend much time in their room, or for friends who intend to share a room, since there's no privacy at all. But if you're traveling with your […] spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend, and you are not using your room for anything but sleep/shower, this is a great choice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small rooms but great staff"
Hotel is clean, and they have a good bar but lifts are often slow. Bed and rooms are extremely small, but packages are delivered to room, and staff go over the top to fulfil your needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great atmosphere and excellent attitude of everybody at the hotel. Great location and surprisingly week furnished and comfortable roomsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The hotel is good but a bit small for my taste."
The hotel is beautiful and clean, the location is good too. The service is excellent. For the price that I paid though, it is not enough square footage. The walls are very thin, you can hear the neighbors if they are being a bit too loud.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"less than expected"
I booked a Mini Bunk Pod for 3 nights stay. Upon arrival the room was clean and in order. The size of the room was much smaller than shown on the website (the photo on the website) and actually it was very tight. I tried to charge my cell phone and the power was also very weak in all hubs and it took at least 7 hours to get my phone fully charged. My […] partner tried to use the electric razor and the same happened. The power was weak and he wasn't able to shave... Every electric gadget was running slow except the TV. Otherwise, the room was at least well equipped and the staff was nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

While it isn't cheap by any means, it is cheap for the neighborhood. Very clean and comfy and well designedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exactly What We Needed!"
I love this place! It's exactly right - just enough frills but no more. The room itself is tiny - just a place to sleep. The safe was big enough to hold both two laptops and two purses. And the bathroom - AAAAH! Delightful, especially the shower. There was a small cleanliness issue when we checked in - there was a gooey smudge on the bathroom light […] switch. I cleaned it myself with hand sanitizer and it was fine. The mattress on the lower bunk was worn and didn't provide enough support, but the one on the top bunk was fine. The location was outstanding - an easy walk to Grand Central - and like other reviewers we loved the bagel shop around the corner! I plan to stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
