The hotel has many interesting details and design to surprise you. This hotel is modern and clean. The location is good, walking distance to Grand Central and also many cafes/ restaurants nearby. Just the room is a bit small for two people, and the bathroom is just separate with a glass therefore the steam after shower may spread to the...

The hotel is the perfect pod in the heart of Manhattan. It's very close (5-15min on foot) to all main attractions, landmarks and shopping spots in NYC (Time Square, Central Park, Grand Central Terminal, Chrysler Building, NYC Public Library, the Empire State Building, 34th Street, etc...) if you're a good walker, you can also get to NoHo and SoHo in...

Overall a nice hotel. The only negative was that the room was very small for two people, there wasn't room for two open suitcases and two people in the room at the same time. See through shower and toilet, so you don't want to stay here with your mother.. Great location and very clean rooms! Would stay here again because...

The front office is really kind and welcomes you friendly. Rooms are also clean and tidy. Housekeeping did a good job! There was a guest that smoke weed and front office handled the situation very well. One of the negative things was your ventilation it was very noisy at night.

I had a single room, which was small, but large enough for me and my stuff. And who needs a big room just for crashing a couple of hours a night. The room was clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. I needed a printout which was no problem to get. The hotel is near the Central station, hence I...

You can't get a more central location for a week in New York than Pod 39! We travelled to NYC for 5 days in March for a girls' getaway week.

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.
