Loved my little pod at Pod39. Bed was really comfortable, shower was great and the room had everything I needed. There's no excess space but I liked that as I found it very cosy. Check in and check out was easy, and the check out time was 12 so no rush. In terms of the location it's further downtown than...

It was 35c outside, aircon was great, can also open window. Rooms are modern, only stayed one night. It would be snug for a long stay, double bed takes up 3/4 of the room. (Not exaggeration, it literally does). Couldn't charge my phone with travel adaptor - access to the plug hole was hampered by desk secured to wall. Had...

I love the idea of tiny living, but with a family of five I can't do it. So finding Pod 39 was a win-win on my trip down the east coast. I wanted to spend a day in Manhattan exploring, but hotels are crazy expensive. Pod 39 was a good budget option, and it put me right in the middle...

Stayed in a full pod for four nights at the start of November and would definitely stay again. Location is great for Central Park, Grand Central (so good for the subway), Times Square and a bunch of others if you're not afraid of a walk. Room itself was small but economical - decent double bed, space under for storage, safe...

Pod 39 is well placed In the middle of NYC, near a subway station which is two connections away from JFK. Rooms are very small, but with the vibrancy of NYC, you will just need your room to sleep. Service is good and property is clean and well serviced. I would recommend to anyone seeking affordable accommodation in the city.

The location is good but not excellent. The room is very tiny and the bathroom its kind of awkward if you need privacy even if its your couple the one in the room. Wifi is free and the hotel is always full of people at the bar.

Pod 39 hits all three incredibly well. The rooms are small but laid out efficiently. The amenities are all modernized and streamlined for peak efficiency. The price is great and it is incredibly clean from top to bottom. I love everything about this hotel. 39th street can be busy at times but for the most part stays relatively quiet. That's...

Booked a spur of the moment trip in December for Christmas and wanted to try Pod. Hotel was very clean and welcoming. Room was was very comfortable and modern. We had a full bed room. Can't wait to come back!

This hotel is really simple, but has everything you need. I stayed in a very small room for 2 nights that was everything I needed! The staff was nice and helpful. For the price, I think this hotel is an excellent choice!

I booked this hotel as I was traveling by myself and New York is hardly affordable so to find this at a semi decent price with a room and it's own bathroom, I was sold. The rooms are very tiny like European style, which wasn't a big deal to me as all I did was sleep and shower there. Far...

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.
