Pods are not for everyone!

Posted Sep 2, 2015
Pros: The staff is great. The rooms are CLEAN.
Cons: This is the Pod, not a large single at the Hilton. You get what you pay for.
Location: Again, the Pod is close to the Lexington Subway station that has the express. There are PLENTY of bars and restaurants near by. Ess Bagel is super!
I have stayed at the Pods before and will again. But Pods aren't for everyone. You will find they are small, not great for taller, large people and have all the necessities including free WiFi that makes a trip to NYC less expensive. The staff is great, housekeeping is super and they respond to any issue extremely promptly and courteously. The rooms are very clean. The locations are wonderful too. Pod51 is a block away from the express Subway that gets you uptown and downtown quickly. You can walk to the heart Rockefeller Center in minutes.

立地良し 快適

Posted Aug 31, 2015
歩いて5番街やセントラルパークなど主要な所もいける。地下鉄駅すぐ!便利! 教会近くは気をつけなきゃいけないけど。女子一人でも快適でした。 日本のビジネスホテルよりも、内装は綺麗で清掃もきちんとしてます。夜は疲れてまったりできました。空いていたのか、隣の物音は聞こえず、静かでした。共用スペースも誰が入ってるか部屋で確認できるし、綺麗でした。 また利用したいです。

Great location

Posted Aug 30, 2015
Pros: This hotel is very cute. Great location.
Cons: The only thing I would want to be upgraded is for there to be shelves/racks in the shared bathrooms. Seriously no room to put your clothes or towels.
New York City is amazing, and the location of this hotel is perfect. There's a subway on the next block, you're in walking distance of many great eating choices and sight seeing views. It's great!

Modern decor in a great Midtown location!

Posted Aug 29, 2015
Pros: Location, modern decor, great shower, TV / AC / safe in the room, affordable.
Cons: Faster check-in time.
Location: All major Manhattan sites in distance due to good connections with subway (6, E, M trains).
I have stayed at this hotel at least three times now and keep coming back. Pod 51 is in a great location with close subway links. You can easily walk to Fifth Avenue and Times Square. The hotel has a very pleasing modern decor with an "artsy" feel and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It is an affordable hotel for what you get. This time around I experienced two minor problems: 1) We arrived at 2pm but had to wait 1 hour for check-in as the room was not ready 2) The room we had booked wasn't really suitable for us. We had booked a double pod with private bathroom but we could see immediately that the bed was very small for two tall people. The hotel had no problem changing our room. We opted for a twin pod (two single beds) as we did not want to have to pay an extra $30 per night for a queen sized pod. The new room suited us much better and we really enjoyed our stay. For a single person, the best value is a single pod with shared bathroom. For a slim and short couple, go with a double pod with private bath. For a taller/bigger couples, go with a queen pod (if funds allow) or a twin pod (separate beds) if you're budgeting. For friends, a twin or bunk bed pod will do. The hotel can also organise an efficient cab service to and from the airports. Daily room cleaning from the maid - do leave a tip!

Single traveler: perfect hotel

Posted Aug 28, 2015
Stayed in a double room with private bath. The room & hotel were great. Had breakfast in the cafe; good food at good prices. Subway stations within walking distance and some good local restaurants. I would totally stay here again.
