Pod 51, New York
Bring your earplugs!
Decent for the price, but do bring your earplugs. The slamming of doors throughout the night as people go back and forth from their rooms to shared bathrooms will wake you.

Good crash pad
This was good value for the money. The room and the bathroom was small, but wasn’t in the hotel much so it didn’t matter. I bring my own sanitizing wipes with me, and was pleasantly surprised to see that they were not dirty when I wiped down the desk, light switches, remote, etc. I did find one hair on the bathroom faucet. Overall very good. There was some dust in the carpet behind the sliding bathroom door. When I checked in the door was off its track but they fixed it. I needed an extra blanket at night and got one from the front desk. There was no heat in the room. Of course this is May and the thermometer said that it was 60 outside but it didn’t feel like that inside. The previous person had opened the window. I closed it but the room never really heated up. The pillow were a bit flat but I piled 2 together and it was fine. The bag check was free so I could ditch my bag at the hotel and walk around. Overall great stay. Not a luxury place but not a luxury price.

Not the most comfortable
Frustrating with the AC basically not doing its job, warm room, bed is uncomfortable. Good area but would have thought would get more for the price.

Excellent value for money!
Excellent stay. My first room was a bit too warm. Doorman came up and saw that it was a heating-pipe in the room that couldn't be shut off. He immediately changed me to another room without any hassle. Shared bathrooms are always clean and readily available - don't let that deter you from booking a room without a bathroom

Simple but great
I knew it would be small but it served its purpose! My husband and i was barely in the room so we didnt mind the size! Cant wait to book again
