This was my 2nd visit to Pod 39. The facilities in the room are clean, modern and basic, but that's all you need if you're touring the city. The en suite shower is ideal for cleaning up after a day (or night) on the town! The location of Pod 39 is excellent for getting around. Just a couple of blocks...

The pod 39 was in an excellent location and its budget friendly price makes it unbeatable! It was a 10 minute walk from Grand Central Station and about 15 minutes from Times Square. I thought in this location that it would be very noisy at night but we didn't hear a thing and slept very well! On top of that...

We are a Spanish couple between 35 and 40 years. We visited New York in early December 2016, and stayed in this hotel 10 days. When we arrived, almost all was within expected. Comfortable bed, ordinary room cleaning (eg. when we arrived the shower drain was full of hairs) and the soap bottles in the room are 3 small bottles...

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.
