Location perfect, two blocks from Newark Airport shuttle, three blocks from Grand Central. Rooms very small but VERY clean. Everything you need there. Staff friendly and helpful. Special help desk for advice and directions, free maps.

The hotel is located near everything you need to see in NYC, also grand central it's 5 minutes walking so you can take the subway to every part of manhattan. I loved it. The rooms are very small however are just fine because you will only go for sleep. The staff was great, I totally recomend it.

Great location. Felt safe, and it's a fair price. The bathrooms are semi transparent and you can hear everything so I recommend staying here with people that you're very comfortable being around in such close quarters. I'd stay here again!

My best friend and I are currently at Pod 39 for our NYC vacation. We love this hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have great suggestions on where to eat and what to see and do.

I recommend entirely if anybody considers to visit New York to try Pod 39 Hotel. The prices are very affordable and is right in the middle of everything.

Overall I enjoyed the stay at pod 39. The rooms are very small (as advertised). The bed was moderately comfortable, and as someone who is operating on another time zone, slight discomfort resulted in broken sleep. It was easy to block outside light at night as the blinds were great. There are safety sensors in the room which flash frequently...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
