Love staying here would always like to return

Great location well located near many bus lines, lots of good restaurants and the area is quiet as compared to some areas of New York. I always enjoy staying there. Staff are quite nice, rooms are clean and QUIET. Bell staff, esp. Luis, are quite friendly and helpful also. I recommend this hotel to anyone!!!

Perfect for short business trip

Small, clean, great location. If you need an iron, just ask and they'll bring it right up with a small ironing board. There are little lights in the rooms showing the occupancy of the 4 bathrooms on the floor, so you know when they are available without leaving the room. Makes sharing painless. I had a single, which is small, but has all you need.

2-day work stay

The hotel met it's usual standards except that guests on my floor were unapologetically rowdy, banging door and screaming most of the two nights I was there. The hotel needs to have better noise control / security levels.

Clean and cozy place

I think Pod 51 is worthy of staying. The room is really clean and the air conditioner worked well. The bed was cozy. I am satisfied. The location was also good. There are 3 metro lines near the hotel! The price was so good. I strongly recommend here to other travelers.

Good one night expirience

Needed a place to stay for one night. The room was pretty small, but it's New York, so if you want something bigger you gonna pay over 200$ Very good location for a person who want to see Manhattan

Great City Getaway!

Pod 51 exceeded my expectations! Loved every bit of it! Clean, quiet, beautiful rooftop! Never had a wait for the shared bath and more space in the room than I anticipated! Will definitely book again!

Short NY stay

Pod 51 has a chic vibe on it, amenities are really clean. Staff even cleaned my room without me having to request it. I never had any problem with the shared bathrooms. There are four on the floor I was on, there's always one available for use when I needed it. It's very conveniently located in Manhattan that it wasn't so difficult going to places on my list.
