Pod 39

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Check in was simple and the front desk staff were super friendly and helpful with letting me know where we could park our car. The room was super clean and just a nice space to spend the night in. The view from the rooftop is amazing also. I would recommend staying here and plan to again when I visit NYC.

The rooms are very small but comfortable for sleeping. The staff was very friendly and helpful. For the value it is a great place to stay.

clean room very convenient location near Grand Central Station

It is super cheap, I spent 80ish for a room with bunk beds which is cheaper than most Airbnb in NYC. The room is very very small, smaller than a room on a cruise, so just be aware of that, but it’s nice and clean and it’s NYC so if ur on a budget it’s a great place. They have all glass bathroom which is a bit of a problem when traveling with friend

great deal well located well renovated small unit are efficient and have all you need

Room is quite small, but quiet at night. Windows in room helped by providing natural light. Room cleaning staff did a nice job.

Room is tiny without much shelving or desk space. No closet. On plus side is clean, bathroom is OK, and pretty quiet at night. Location is good for Midtown, east side.

I wold highly recommend staying at Pod 39 for your next trip in NYC. The space is small and cozy, which is perfect for a place to crash overnight while you are exploring the city. We did not spend much time in the room, as we had to catch a train the next morning. The space was perfect for a short stay, and checking in and out was super easy. The space has a hip vibe and a good place to stay for young adults who are exploring the city.

Just needed a good place to sleep as I knew I’d mostly be out and about for my 2 night visit to NYC. The single pod was small, as expected, but a nice new modern design, clean lines, efficient. For a guy traveling light for a short stay, a good and economic choice. A couple would probably find themselves quite cramped even if they can normally share a full bed, due to the limited floor space and layout. Shower fixtures and function were nice, but towel storage is outside the bathroom. There is no closet - there are hangars on a row of pull-out coat hooks - again, fine for a guy traveling light but maybe not so good for the fashion-focused. There is a large drawer for storage built into the bed frame and a typical 4-number code safe big enough for a laptop bag and more mounted under the single station desk/table. Good wifi connectivity. I’d stay in this room again for a similar trip, but for a couple or more than 3 nights I’d upgrade to something bigger with a little more creature comforts.

This time I got a corner room, which is cool with 2 different views but it was weirdly smaller than the normal rooms.

We got from Orbitz this hotel on a quick search and it exceed our expectations. Very Good and the price fare.

The room was great and all you need to sleep in. Not the place if you plan on spending time in your room. My only complaint is the towels could be a little bigger and fluffier. Location was awesome. I’ll defintely be staying here again. Price is right.

Always chose Pod when I traveled to New York, which is two to three times a year. They are located in very convenient locations with shopping, restaurant, grocery stores and nail salons within 5-min walking distance. The room is neat, clean, modern, small but enough space. They basically only have the essential stuff in the room, but that’s what I like about it...

Only 1 elevator in service, a minor delay. Rooms are very small but very functional and very clean. Bed was comfortable.

Well located, Easy walking distance to Times Square and grand central station. The rooms can be small but hence the affordable price. Staff were very friendly and got good tips of where to go and how to get there from the concierge. The taco place downstairs is incredibly overpriced.

It’s a great place to stay for overnight trips to NYC. The rooms look great and close to Grand Central. Also a short walk to Herald Square for shopping. Diner across the street and a bar a block away for a quick drink.

The Pod 39 is consistently clean, incredibly quiet for a New York City hotel, and convenient, with a wonderful front desk staff. The trade-off is the tiny Ness of the rooms, but for a night or two this is so, so worth it!

I needed an overnight place to stay,before the next day's 5-state drive. I appreciate the accommodations and service. The facility served it's purpose. The location also helped,with the various restaurants in the immediate area. Another convenience is the hotel's bar & grill on the ground floor.

This is in walking distance to time square and a lot of other things. Very comfortable beds and great night life

Good location. Modern look. Clean room. Only major downside was lack of space. Overall, very satiafied w/ experience and would definitely stay here again.
