We missed our flight due to an insane security queue at JFK and luckily Pod 51 had availability. When we arrived, even though it was late (12am) and we had a last minute booking, we were checked in and accommodated quickly. The rooms were so modern and clean and had everything we needed. They even had a choice of soft or firmer pillows, plenty of towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner. It was quiet. The room had an amazing view. Perfectly comfortable bed. It was heaven after such a stressful evening missing the flight. So glad I could sleep here instead of an airport floor or somewhere else. They also have a great bar next door. Everyone was so great and helpful. Next time were in New York, I want to stay here again.

So please this chain, and particularly this hotel, survived Covid. Stayed here many times and will continue to do so in the future.Bathrooms could do with a little work in places, but are always spotlessly clean. When you consider these places have no or very little income over the last 2 years I can forgive that. Roof terrace is amazing in summer and a real great place to end or start a night.Friendly staff, add a real personal touch and nothing is too much effort.Thanks for having me Pod51 and Ill be again soon!

I was very pleased with the stay at the Pod51 hotel. Its very much a European-style hotel, so if youve never been overseas please know that everything is narrow and small. They have a very poor energy rating which was my only concern for my technology that was plugged in, I didnt want anything to overheat. But I did enjoy the Queen pod that we got it had its bathroom inside. I wasnt comfortable with sharing a bathroom however if you are used to college dorm-style it is not a problem. I do love the rooftop terrace, it is a great place to get sun, as well as take photos. Especially if you want a city view in the background this is one of the better views that I have seen.

This hotel room as perfect. The bed was so comfortable I had no trouble sleeping. Even though the bathroom was small, it was designed in such a way that you still had room to move about. The desk came in handy for eating meals in the room. It wouldve been nice if there had been a guide for the tv channels but I hate my only complaint. I had the queen suite with my own bathroom, I didnt want to risk sharing a bathroom with COVID still going on. The employees were friendly and they were able to give me a late checkout which I really appreciated because it was snowing. Will definitely be going back in the future.

We enjoyed everything about our stay at the Pod 51! Yes, the rooms are small. My husband and I are not tall people so we were fine, but I can see where a taller person might be uncomfortable in these rooms. The people who work here are phenomenal, they made our stay that much better. They got ice for us, held our luggage, got us an extra blanket when we needed it, checked out our AC, they were fantastic. Theres a metro station just a few blocks from here. Several restaurants are around it also, and a CVS/Pharmacy if you need essentials. The outdoor deck was a lovely way to relax after a day of walking. We enjoyed cheesecake and key lime pie from Moonstruck Eatery (not far from the hotel) in the deck chairs. We will absolutely return to this hotel if we travel back to NYC!

Great quirky hotel. Room basic but great for a few nights. No food, have to order take outs which are allowed. Some rooms dont have showers but theres a great system where you can see which of thr many shared bathrooms are free. I had a double room that had a good shower room. Staff were fantastic & extremely helpful. Would visit again

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking your room. This site will compare countless booking websites and typically will have prices a lot cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This resort is one of the best in this area. Ive been coming here for a very long time. If you choose this place you for sure will love it Im sure!This hotel room as perfect. The bed was so comfortable I had no trouble sleeping. Even though the bathroom was small, it was designed in such a way that you still had room to move about.

Wonderful location! Only steps away from great restaurants and sightseeing areas. The rooms are small, as well as the shared bathrooms, but that comes with the nature of pods. Relatively quiet area, especially considering it’s NYC. I also appreciated the lounging areas in the lobby and outside.

This place was a pleasant surprise. The rooms are small but mostly just needed a place to sleep anyways. We had a room with the shared bathroom. There were four bathrooms on our floor. At first I was not excited about the idea, but the shared bath concept grew on me. There were lights in the room so you knew which bathroom was vacant. The bathroom was small with a toilet, sink, and shower but was fine for its purpose. Deciding how to get to the bathroom from your room walking into the hall was a difficult decision for me, but ultimately I decided to just walk to the bathroom in my undies and go back to the room wrapped in a towel which was fine because I never saw anyone else in the hallways anyways. The bar/restaurant downstairs had decent food and good spirits and was a nice place to hang out. Most couples would probably not like the bunk beds in the room but for my wife and I it wasnt an issue. I just decided that it was worth the experience.

Havent checked out yet but so far our last 2 nights have had no issues. We got to check in 2 hours early (Monday), our Queen room w bathroom was clean, fresh towels. Friendly check in. Friendly staff. Roof top is super cute! Plenty of places near by to get food and eat on roof or courtyard sitting. Its a basic room, no fridge, microwave, no gym or washing machine but you are within walking distance of many things. I learned sort of how to use subway which is fun. But close enough to Central Park and Times Square to explore.
