Functional, practical accommodation and location
There was a great deal of noise , which made it difficult to sleep.
Great style, fun atmosphere, good location, friendly staff - the hotel was stylish and comfortable - small on space, big on charm
if you are tall, the toilet area is a little tight, but the overall use of space is so smart it's ingenious
I booked a standard pod (i.e. double bed, private bathroom) and I thought it was excellent value for what you get. Sure, it's a smaller room but not nearly as small as many hotel rooms in Europe. The facility was very clean, comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. The location in East Midtown was very convenient and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. I enjoyed Totto Ramen on 52nd as well as the Morning Star Cafe on 2nd Ave for cheap and cheerful diner breakfast. Would definitely stay at Pod 51 again!
Excellent overall for its quality/price ratio. Very worthy.
I could not figure out how to use the bed. the 2 bedlights were on the same side. the alarm at the foot. And I was alone! It Would have been even more puzzling for a couple.,
The staff are great, lovely bar downstairs, beds are very comfortable, lovely cleaning staff, very clean.
The wifi on my phone kept cutting out, but not on my laptop - perhaps a problem just for me.
Compact and simple. Sometimes noisey. Good location for sights and shopping.
TV volume was intermittent. Toilet backed once and took hours for engineering to come to fix it.
Very functional, modern design. Extremely good WiFi. As clean as it gets with shared bathrooms.
On my last morning the hot water system broke, which was extremely annoying.
Location was perfect for us. Hotel was very clean, modern, intimate, and fun! We were very happy with our purchase. Even though the rooms are small the space plan worked perfectly and was very well executed.
The bed was too hard for me. After two days of walking around new York a soft bed would have been better. Or even a mattress topper, it was just too hard.
Nice design and efficient
Had to go back to front desk to have card key properly activated. Did not work first time.
For communal bathrooms they were great, individual toilet and shower gave you privacy and you also got fresh towels daily. Great little rooms and the place is in the perfect location. Would come back again and again!
Very very clean. Free Wifi, rooms well thought out. Staff very helpful. Good little breakfast cafe. Close to 2 subway lines.
Rooftop lounge, breakfast bar.
Noise from the hallway during the overnight hours.
only advantage is the location. very close to the subway stations.
- our double bed private room was like a hobbit house. if you are a couple, you should not stay more than one night. - toilette has no proper door - shower is too small - there is no emough space for 2 people. was like a prison
The design of The room is essential, yet nice enough to make you feeling on holiday
The aircon is quite noisy, right behind the head when you are in bed.
Hotel Pod 51 is in a very convenient location. I travelled in to Manhattan on the subway from JFK and it was a short walk to the hotel from the nearest subway. As I was only in New York overnight I opted for the single bedroom with shared facilities and it was fine. I had no problems accessing the bathroom when I needed to. It was a very small room, but it had everything I needed for a brief overnight stay (including a hand basin). I would not suggest the single room for a long stay as it was tiny, but for a quick overnight stay it was more than sufficient.
The appearance of the hotel is very pleasant, location is perfect, worth a return.
The gentleman at the counter (not the Latino gentleman)could be far more guest friendly. The staff at the coffee/breakfast bar is inexperienced and need better management.
The only complaint I had was the TV had a crack in the screen so I couldn't watch the left side. I didnt spend much time watching tv so it was still a pleasant experience.
The location and staff are fantastic. Lovely rooftop. Clean rooms, though small, and comfy beds. Can't beat the price for a stay in midtown.
The dirtiness of the public/shared bathrooms.
Great location, good value for money!!
Rooms slightly small.
Location, price, comfortable beds, friendly staff.
They play really strange and loud/techno-like music over a loud speaker that woke us up starting at 7am. Make sure to pack your headphones to block out the obnoxious music. TINY rooms. REALLY tiny.
a bit more room round the bed so I didn't bang me leg room 10/11
Although the room was billed as "standard double" and showed a picture of a double bed it was more like a futon set-up with one person sleeping across the top of the bed and the other along the bottom. It was most uncomfortable. There was NO ROOM to walk anywhere in the room. Disappointing experience and we checked out early.
Queen size room is perfectly sized, cleverly designed and spotlessly clean. Even the smaller rooms look fine and the shared bathrooms are regularly cleaned and modern looking. Roof terrace is stunning at night. Location is perfect, rates are good. The little coffee shop/ snack bar is great. Try ess-a-bagel or the morning star cafe for breakfast, crave fish bar or the smith for dinner, and the stags head or draught 55 for great drinks. We WILL be back to pod 51
Nothing, we were very happy.
Amazing location, very clean and comfortable and great value for money in such an expensive city.
