    I thought Pod 51 is one of the coolest places I have stayed at in New York, the staff and accommodation was excellent, comfortable, clean and modern. perfect location for exploring that amazing city. The restaurant and food were amazing but it was the roof top bar that stood out for me most.

    Could probably do with a wifi connection at the roof top bar.

    Small but practical rooms, friendly staff and a nice cafe / restaurant downstairs

    Long waits for elevators - only two elevators for 14 floors with lots of tiny rooms.

    Elevators were under renovation, so it was crowded at times

    The location was excellent and the price was extremely good. The room was comfortable, well-equipped and clean while the shared bathroom facilities were also surprisingly clean at all times. It seems the hotel has the right number of toilets and showers as there was never a queue to use the facilities.

    The AC unit in the window meant the room was not sound-proof and there was quite a loud noise at all times. It did not disturb my sleep but I think that is mostly because I tired myself out every day throughout my stay. Some of the staff were not very friendly, though I wouldn't call them unhelpful either. The hotel could benefit from offering a proper breakfast.

    Comfy beds, clean showers, modern design, very minimal, nothing fancy but incredible value for money. We were sightseeing and busy having fun so it's and ideal place for sleeping and showering! Very impressed

    Happy with all

    Location and cleanliness.

    I ask for an extra pillow and they did not have any extras. The following day a got an extra pillow. Besides that I love the hotel.

    Hotel was clean, staff approachable, price for Manhatten OK

    Size of the room was small, no air conditioning so room was hot even at night, Wi-Fi signal while free was poor and repeatably dropped out

    I loved just about everything. The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was clean. My stay was very pleasant.

    Just one minor thing at some point my room key stopped working and I had to ask the housekeeping lady to open the door for me but it was nothing major since I wasn't alone and we had a spare one.

    Not far to Grand Central Station and, of course, close to NYC's subways. They do offer a shuttle service to JFK. Rooms are small but designed for efficiency and comfort. We stayed in an ensuite double room, but we would definitely consider staying in a room with shared bathrooms as each room has a panel indicating whether the bathrooms are in use...very clever!

    Pod51 is first and foremost a great deal. Pros: Very clean. Friendly helpful staff. Cool rooftop deck. Fast wi-fi. Efficient use of space. Nice restrooms with good showers. Great area. Good A.C.

    Not the most comfortable beds.

    We were able to walk to Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Broadway, and Empire State Building. Easy access to subway. Hotel was clean with room service daily. I shared a room with my 17 year old daughter. We felt safe and the staff was helpful. The rooms were small but cozy and the area and hotel had a community vibe. I also enjoyed my complementary glass of wine at their bar.

    Construction was going on in the lobby of the hotel. I realize it is only temporary and we just happened to stay during that time. For future stays the improvements are a plus.

    The rooms are exactly what the name suggests: little pods. It's great because 2 people can more or less live comfortably in a very confined space. Being 6'2" myself, I can say that larger guest can find it accommodating as well.

    The bathroom was the only part I wasn't fond of. With a curtain for a door, privacy is lacking, but if you're comfy organs enough, it's fine.

    It was clean and the beds comfortable. The restaurant was good and the rooftop patio was nice.

    No WiFi in the room, the elevators were slow and sometimes didn't work and there was a strong ?mold/?musty smell from the air conditioner.

    Front desk under construction shards of metal were under my pillow (pillows were in cubby near ceiling) wi-fi was slower than dial up! Going to the bathroom requires a key...God forbid its the middle of the night!

    I liked the location and the staff. The location was excellent and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Kudos to Marcos for being an amazing "keeper of the suitcases." They also offered free walking tours, which were great!

    I didn't like the fact that there was not a bathroom in the room. On the website, they put it in a panaroma, which made it appear there was a bathroom in the room.

    The hotel was very clean, the staff was very helpful, the location was great. In terms of price it is actually affordable compared to other hotels in the same area. It accomplishes it's purpose, clean, affordable and good location.

    The rooms were not that comfortable neither were the beds, and you can actually feel like if you were in a college dorm.
