Great place in the heart of NYC. Small but has everything you need. Definitely recommend it and would stay again. Very clean and the bar in the Lobby is great. We had a very enjoyable stay. Walking distance to every where

I have been coming to either Pod 51 (formerly Pickwick Arms) or Pod 39 for over 20 years; it is the best place in town for those on a reasonable budget. Good location, very good customer service (really good at looking after a large number of packages I had sent to the hotel ahead of my arrival). There are three... More

I stayed in a bunk room for one night and it was great! A clean, well-appointed room equipped with everything you'd expect and wrapped neatly into a tiny package (about 90 square feet)! No detail has been overlooked, down to the strategically placed coat hooks and a light and shelf for each bed. The room somehow manages to not feel... More

I booked a single pod for 3 nights. when I checked IN, they told they did a free upgrade to a queen pod that was fabulous and they did this to me for continuous 2 visits. The rooms are little small, but they are very clean and beautiful. I stayed 7 nights and that was wonderful. Walkable distance to all... More

Stayed here for 6 nights in Oct/Nov 16... As a solo female staying in the Queen room, I found it to be a cozy well appointed space in a safe location that was a perfect base to explore NYC from. (Note - Partially frosted glass bathroom door may be of a concern if travelling with a companion.) The hotel has... More

The hotel is located near everything you need to see in NYC, also grand central it's 5 minutes walking so you can take the subway to every part of manhattan. I loved it. The rooms are very small however are just fine because you will only go for sleep. The staff was great, I totally recomend it.

Great location. Felt safe, and it's a fair price. The bathrooms are semi transparent and you can hear everything so I recommend staying here with people that you're very comfortable being around in such close quarters. I'd stay here again!

My best friend and I are currently at Pod 39 for our NYC vacation. We love this hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have great suggestions on where to eat and what to see and do.

I recommend entirely if anybody considers to visit New York to try Pod 39 Hotel. The prices are very affordable and is right in the middle of everything. You basically make 15 walking from the hotel to the Times Square. The staff is also very friendly and if you want a great coffee in the morning Starbucks is just around... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
