Cheap, Clean, Decent Place (but small)

Decent place in Midtown East - very small rooms, good enough for sleeping, but little else. Clean place - friendly staff - although they need to reopen the burger joint that was in the lobby : (

Two night stay with SO

We booked this hotel because I had reward money and I couldn't complain for the price! Our room was very small and cramped. We are college students so it reminded us of our freshman years. So if you don't mind being cramped then it's a great deal, especially for those who are trying to save money! It didn't bother us much since we were always gone anyways! Showers are communal as well. Overall you get what you pay for!

Convenient Hotel for Business Trip

I was looking for a cheap hotel in MidTown for a business trip and Pod 51 fit the bill nicely. I had a private room and it was comfortable for the small amount of time I spent there. I was pleasantly surprised at how well noises from outside were blocked - I slept like a log while I was there. I was a little disappointed that the wifi was not secured, which caused me to limit my business use of it, but its strength and availability for my use were more than sufficient. Next time I'm in NY, I'll be staying here again.

European vibe in NYC

I enjoy the vibe of this hotel. I typically get just a room & use the shared bathrooms, which have always been clean. A lite will alert you in your room if bathtooms are 'in use' . The roof is great place to kick back after a long day or the cozy garden in the back is also relaxing. I really like the location & will stay here again.
