I knew the room was small, but I didn't realize how small it was until I arrived. Cold air was seeping through the bathroom. I had to turn the thermostat to at least 73-74 soni could feel warm, but then it would just feel stuffy.

Really cool place, I highly recommend. The only problem; being in such a small room close to the door, it was a bit noisy due to other guests doors, talking etc. DON’T get me wrong, I’ve never been in a “sound proof” hotel anywhere!

Perfect size rooms with functional bathrooms. Don’t need any more space. Great place and affordable to crash for a night.

Staff was wonderful. Rooms were exactly what was needed.

Stayed there last weekend for some traditional NYC Christmas festivities. Couldn't be happier with choosing this hotel. Conveniently located, Very clean and the staff was super friendly and helpful - every one of them. Warm smiles across the board. The restaurant in the hotel was fantastic. Rooms are small but adorable and beds were so comfortable. After all, all you need after bouncing around the city all day is a great/clean bed and bathroom right?? My only negative thing to say would be that I would have preferred complimentary coffee in the morning like most hotels. It was almost $4 for a very small cup. That being said I would still stay there again!!! Looking forward to the rooftop bar opening in the warmer months. Excellent job Pod 39 :)

Price, location and cleanliness and in a safe location

Room was nice and clean but on the small size, bar looks really nice

It is a winter time, temperature outside 26. Heat in the room come from ceiling. So when your body is hot and sweating, your feet are cold.

Room is tiny but but adequate. Rooftop bar, restaurant on site, staff are excellent. Would stay again.

There was only 1 trash can in the room, would of liked if there was 1 for the room and the bathroom but otherwise room and everything was clean and staff were nice. I have no complaints.

We loved staying at the Pod39. The rooms are exactly as advertised, and the staff is very friendly. We were there for New Year's Eve, and they had a party at the restaurant and games room. While we did not attend the party, we did get a chance to chat with a few of the other patrons staying at the hotel. If you plan on sharing a room with someone, do ensure that you are really comfortable with them. The rooms are exactly as advertised, on the smaller side (as expected), and the washrooms have a frosted glass that separates it from the bedroom area. If you are someone who prefers complete privacy in the washroom, these rooms will not work for you, unless you book as a single booking.
