Super hip location ! great rooftop bar! The staff was efficient and the location near the 6 train was ideal ! Starbucks one block away!

Great location for a hotel

Posted May 25, 2015
Pros: It's convenient location is a plus.
Cons: Staff at the reception could be more attentive.
Location: Location wise the location is great. There several outlets for food in the area. It is also a walking distance from shops and Grand Central station.
The room was not what we expected. It was really small. However the hotel is conveniently located as it is in close proximity to the Grand Central Station and to the UN. This make up for its shortcoming. Our room was on the 13th floor. Hence, it was less noisy. We were provided with sufficient towels but they were quite small. The housekeepers replace them each day of our stay. They however were stingy on the shampoo and the soap. Checking out was quick and easy but checking in was slow.

Great spot for trip to The City

Posted May 24, 2015
Pros: The thoughtfulness of the design and model. Everything that's necessary: clean & comfortable, with no unnecessary frills. The price was nice too.
Cons: Consistency in pricing. I got my night for half the price that was offered for the following night. Forced me to leave to another spot, disappointing.
Location: Rooftop bar on the 17th floor. Grand Central subway entrance right around the corner...
The room has everything you need and nothing more. The staff is polite and fun. The location is great (you have to check out the rooftop bar!). Completely recommend for a single traveler on business or a couple on a getaway.

Micro sized room and expensive

We knew it would be small but quite cramped. Would look for other options next time.

Tiny, but economical

Posted May 22, 2015
Pros: Location & price
Cons: Bedside table would be a welcome addition
Location: Near midtown theatres, easy access to transportation
Good location, fairly economical for Manhattan, tiny single bed, nice bathroom, clean but already Looking a bit worn. Avoid the 17th floor, the windows look into the rooftop restaurant and it is noisy. Youthful, industrial feel.

Good value

Posted May 20, 2015
Pros: Pod 29 is located close to Grand Central and the NY Public Library, so it's a convenient location. The hotel is quiet so I can sleep.
Cons: Given how small the rooms are, I don't know of a thing except to put washcloths in with the towels.
Location: Near Grand Central and 5th Ave. and easy walk to theater district.
I've stayed in this hotel 3 times now because I like its location - very convenient for me. It's reliable - the wi fi works, the rooms are what they say they are. The staff is friendly.

スタッフがみな優しく、たどたどしい英語の私にも親身に対応してくれました。狭いですが、一人旅、寝るだけなので不便しませんでした。場所もわかりやすかったです。 おすすめできるホテルです。ニューヨークに行く機会があれば、また行きたいと思います。

Great value in excellent location.

Posted May 18, 2015
I stayed here for two nights on a business trip and spent very little time in the room. It was perfect for what I needed; great location to the office and all the amenities required to sleep and stay comfortably. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that there was a bathroom/shower in my single pod room (not always the case in the other location).
