"Trendy/Fun Hotel with a Few Minor Issues."
Hotel was clean. Rooms were small, but still comfortable. Cons: The bathroom door doesn't offer a lot of privacy and the "rainfall' shower is more like trying to cleanse under Niagara Falls. And you can't adjust the spout for the water so it got kind of annoying trying to take a shower. The shampoos/conditioner/body soap provided was not great, so make […] sure to bring your own. No lotion provided. Towels were small. I could hear snoring through the walls and had trouble sleeping. Pros: Location was good. Easy walk to Times Square and Subway stations. Rooftop bar is nice and convenient. They closed a little early but they leave the doors open so you can see the view anytime. Elevators were fast and neatly designed. The concierge was good and gave some great recommendations. There is a taco restaurant/bar in the building that looked pretty fun. Overall, the hotel is modern and is suitable for younger and trendier crowds. Those expecting more traditional accommodations and amenities might be left feeling slightly disappointed.

"A little tight, but worth it!"
We had the bunk bed Pod, it was tight and we could've used more room.The sink was too small and the shower was tight as well, but the roof top bar makes up for all the inconveince!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel room wasn't as big as I thought it would be. Overall the experience was memorableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
If your looking for a great location to several keys things to do in NYC this is the place for you. The rooms are small but since we were out sight seeing all day it didn't bother us. A friend and I shared a room that included a bathroom (shower, toilet and sink), bunk beds, a small desk and a small area to hang your clothes. On each bed there was a […] shelf for you to lay your phone, bottle of water, etc and at the end if the bed was a small tv. I would definitely stay at the pod again!!!

"Convenient, minimal, good design"
Nothing tacky just minimal. Great showers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had 3 amazing nights at the Pod 39 Hotel. My room was ready as soon as i got there at noon. The front desk was very friendly and very professional. I had the same room as my previous stay in NYC and that was simply amazing to see. Ya! The room was comfy and great on location just steps away from my favorite hot spots in manhattan. Again, Pod 39 Hotel […] was amazing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"a safe, quiet, compact place to sleep"
Lots of 20-30 yr olds and a bunch of Europeans of all ages. Pod 39 is now my first choice in NYC. Affordable, great location. All I need is a clean bed, a bathroom, a safe for valuables, and a place to plug in my electronics. I go to NYC to buzz around the city - not hang out in my hotel room. Their Rooftop Lounge offers a intra-city roof top view that […] is astonishing. Staff was very nice and efficient. . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome stay at Pod 39"
My friend and I spent one night at Pod 39 and we loved it. As two non-city girls, we weren't sure what to expect, but this place exceeded our expectations. The room was small, yes, but that much was expected. We shared a double bedroom and it was just what we needed. It was clean, comfortable and we felt very safe. We LOVED the rooftop bar and the restaurant […] downstairs. The location was convenient and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I will DEFINETELY stay here again.

"Would definitely stay here again."
The location was perfect - close to Grand Central so we could catch trains, shuttles to airport, easily. The room was compact and clean. Great place to land after a long day of walking and visiting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"love the POD!"
I have stayed at the Pod hotels before, and I just adore them. Yes, the rooms are small...but, they are clean, well appointed, quiet, and have everything you need for an enjoyable stay. I will definitely stay there again, when I visit NYC.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Small rooms but that's why you stay at pod! Great location and close to lots of things to do. The glass bathroom was a bit odd but can't beat the price and service. Would def return!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Loved this hotel"
Hotel has had a total renovation. Rooms small, but spotless. We did not come to NY to stay in our room, so found it comfortable, great location. Would return for sure. Also loved the rooftop patio.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was GREAT! We absolutely loved our stay here. Everything is brand new and clean, not to mention incredibly cool and funky! The rooms are very small, however, they are designed so well that you have everything you could need and don't feel too cramped. Service was wonderful, everyone is very nice and helpful. The upstairs patio is incredible […] with a stunning view of the city. I will definitely be coming back here for my next New York trip, and I recommend you do the same - you won't regret it!

"great central location"
It worked out great for us. Rooms are tiny, but we weren't in the room much! The pillows & bedding could've been more comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved this place. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to find affordable accommodation in NYC. The rooms were a bit small but very clean and perfect for our stay. The rooftop bar was AMAZING, great views of the city. The staff was also very friendly. I will be coming back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very modern and great service!"
If IKEA were to design a smart hotel, this would be it. Rooms are small as it's nyc, but very functional so I didn't feel cramped. Excellent location, can walk to Grand Central, etc. I jogged to Central Park and it was just over a mile. Also want to say thanks to the housekeeping staff (Elena, namely) as I left my dkny glasses there and she made sure […] they were returned to me. I'll definitely stay there again and highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"always a pleasant stay"
have stayed here numerous times and they are quite good about recognizing my need, as a business traveler, for a quiet room. my only complaint is that this hotel does not have a dedicated service elevator so there are often long waits for an elevator. but the neighborhood has great restaurants and the hotel is a short walk to Grand Central from which […] you can get to anywhere in NYC Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location and budget hotel"
i only stayed in the hotel from 12am to 7am. great hotel if it's half the price of a decent 3-4 star hotel. the bathroom setup might be awkward for some due to it's size. location is perfect and the lobby and lounge/bar is great. staff is very friendly. having a safe is great and big enough for a laptop.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good value good location"
Small space, but perfect for one person. I liked it as it was sort of funky. Close to Grand Central Station and easy to get to.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"convenient oasis in the middle of manhattan"
loved the décor and vibe. young, hip, casual, not pretentious - and I'm over 60! parking deal very convenient. small cozy room felt big. I will be a repeater.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"For the young and shameless"
The staff were incredible, the location was great, the hotel was trendy, nice remodel. The rooms were a little dirty, mainly the bathroom.. Just soap scum on the walls and the floors made our white socks brown, There is no privacy if you're using the bathroom. I roomed with a co-worker, so it was a bit awkward, I had to leave the room so she could use […] the bathroom, and I showered in the dark. I think it's great if your staying with a sibling or a spouse or significant other... It is a nice hotel with a cool space for hanging out on the 17th floor. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"a fleeting glimpse"
I consistently rely on the pod when I need to get to New York for a couple of nights. This was my first time at 39. As per usual, everything was efficient, friendly, and in tune with attention to the correct set of details. It was more money than before, and once reacquainted with family, they were shocked. But what do they know? Modernity is key to […] the pods, and I recommend them and the people who staff them. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
need accessible entrance it was hard to use stairs, open the doors and get in lobby with two bags while it was raining cats and dogsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay"
Nice rooms, good service, bars and attached restaurants were a little pricey, but the cheaper room evened it out. would definitely stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room was small and the bathroom walls were glass."
The room I was booked was very, very small. The bathroom is inside the room with glass walls. Very unpleasant and no privacy. I was disappointed with the accommodation. Would not recommend to anyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Buy a lamp"
The hotel experience was great, kind of fun actually. It was a tight squeeze with the bunk beds; not a whole lot of room for suitcases etc. A desk lamp from ikea may not be a bad idea either!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The place was exactly what it said it was going to be. Front desk staff was friendly, Salvation Taco in the lobby was jumping and the place to be on a Friday night! Room was small, my boyfriend and I joked it was similar to a jail cell, but tolerable for a one night stay. Loved the shower, towels are tiny, bring your own if possible. Great place for […] the price! Walking distance to lots of great sites! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, modern, & great rooftop bar!"
Very clean, modern and the rooms are exactly "pod sized" . Great staff and service but no room service so you'll have to use seamless to order food. Near the 6 train but no major subway transportation to the west side. Located in Murray Hill, lots to do nearby. As a New Yorker it was a pleasant stay though the hotel is mostly filled either with tourists […] and locals interested in the rooftop scene. Rooftop bar is awesome though drinks are about $16/cocktail. We mostly picked this hotel based on price, cleanliness and the fact it is pet friendly! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just right for what it is."
Staff is great. Room is small. Off season, prices are great. But from April, on, you may as well find a better hotel for the same price, because the rooms are so tiny. But when you can get a single room for much less in October, it's amazing. They even upgraded me to a double once because my bolt lock wouldn't work. It's so convenient to get around […] the city from here and the rooms are quite quiet. Easy to plug your laptop in. Free wifi. Great use of small space. Sadly, this time the rooftop deck was locked. Not sure why, because in winter we could go out there, no problem. Be sure to tip your cleaning staff people! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
If you are looking for a hotel near all the tourist attractions, Pod is perfect. The hotel itself is well maintained, modern, and fresh.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location and price"
Rooms are very small but clean and newly redone. Location is great and the price is right.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An affordable and clean room for two"
In NYC you don’t need a hotel room you can lounge about in, as you barely spend any time inside the room. It’s merely a place to sleep and shower. Pod 39 is perfect for that. The room was super small (I could touch both side walls at the same time — nearly palming each wall — while standing in the middle of the room, and I’m only 5'10"), but adequate […] for two. The bunk beds were awesome. The room we had was right next to the elevator but the hall noise we could hear was manageable and not annoying. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close enough to theater district without the crowd"
It was very cool. Room perfect for 1 or 2 day trip to NYC. Staff was awesome. Beds extremely comfortable. Bar was a great hangout as well. Will come back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not very happy"
Over priced for what you get. Room way too small. Does not put wash clothes in the room. For the price we paid we could have stayed a several other much nicer and roomier hotels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I would stay there again appreciating propinquity to GC Terminal and its subway connections.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Straightforward, reasonably prices and cozy"
I chose this hotel initially for three reasons: proximity to UN (Where I had a conference), reasonable price and lively, modern design. It lived up to all three reasons and I found additional reasons to love it. The room is sparse and small, but you don't truly notice it because of all of the design elements in the room. The unobtrusive hooks, the modern […] desk, the wainscoting as "headboard" on one wall. Plus the easily accessible power plugs on desk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"always a good night's sleep"
as a business traveller getting rest is key; this hotel takes care of me by making sure I have a quiet room, a service which brings me back again and again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I didn't know what to expect from a hotel named "pod". The bed was comfortable, the internet service was decent, however, I was kind of disappointed with the "minimalist" approach. The first thing that struck me when I entered the room with my computer bag, suitcase and garment bag was there was no closet, or even hanger rack. I had to hang everything […] on a pair of spring loaded hooks. You know the ones you find in an airplane bathroom? Not very good for keeping wrinkles out of clothes. Then, I realized that I had to call the front desk for an iron and ironing board. They promptly brought it up to my room, but I had to spend a half hour cleaning the burnt residue off the bottom of the iron before it ruined every piece of clothing I brought with me. Fail #2. The bathroom shower was nice with plenty of pressure. All in all, I guess it was ok if you are on a budget. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel for the money"
Nice hotel. Exactly what they say it is. Kind of noisy area, but that was due to local construction.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tiny but Mighty!"
When we arrived close to midnight, that did not phase the front desk - the night life was alive and kicking! I felt comfortable having a drink in the lounge area by myself as a single female. There was an international vibe and a hostel vibe, but with private rooms with their own bathrooms. LOVED the frosted wall partition! VEry clean room, compact […] little closet area to hang a few things, AWESOME rainshower head! We took advantage of the guided walking tour of Chelsea Piers, the High Line, and Greenwich Village. We even got back a bit late for the official check out time, but the front desk was already aware of it & helped us check out gracefully! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small, smart, and stylish."
Great location near Grand Central, hip vibe, helpful, friendly service, really smart use of space - everything I needed for my stay. Bathroom situation not for the shy if you are sharing a room - only a frosted glass door separating the bathroom from the bedroom. But, so much attention to detail in the room to make a small space seem quite comfortable […] and convenient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tiny Rooms Great location and Price"
I stayed in a bunk room with my ten year old daughter and had a wonderful time. I knew that the rooms would be small and they were but a clean modern room at a good price was much more important to me. We were able to take walks to all the mid-town attractions and as a bonus could see the Empire State Building from the room. Plus the tinniness and bunk […] bed were more of an adventure for my daughter and I than a problem. Will stay again if my travels find me back in NY. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"pod 39 Manhattan"
My stay was functional and that's all I was looking for, so I'm satisfied. One point of contention, I left a personal item in my room accidentally and they wouldn't mail it to me even if I paid for shipping. I know other hotels do provide that service. Other then that it was fine. The rooms are small and boxy but I knew that going in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small but efficient and clean"
This hotel has a great business model. The designer was excellent when designing a small room that is efficient. The hotel is clean, staff pleasant, good location and very economical. However, this may not be a hotel for everyone…you need to be flexible and understand that your room only provides a place to sleep and shower. Make sure you are staying […] in a room with a good travel companion because you will need to be patience with one another. The lounge and restaurant connected to the hotel is great and we visited there several times. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel for a value seeker traveler.
