European vibe in NYC

I enjoy the vibe of this hotel. I typically get just a room & use the shared bathrooms, which have always been clean. A lite will alert you in your room if bathtooms are 'in use' . The roof is great place to kick back after a long day or the cozy garden in the back is also relaxing. I really like the location & will stay here again.

Good location

Booked this hotel during a weekend in the city around the holidays. The location was easily accessible by the subway which made for easy transportation around the city. The room is very small but was aware of this when booking the hotel. We stayed in a private room with a double bed. The room was clean but there is not much space if you are bringing luggage or spending a prolonged period of time there. However for one night there was ample space. There was no way to adjust the heat so had to sleep with the windows open. Did not feel secure doing this. Later came to realize the windows did not lock at all and there was the hotel entrance/canopy directly below us (1 story) which made me quite concerned about accessibility to our room with no locks on the windows. The radiators were VERY loud at night there room was very modern but heating system seemed to old cast iron heaters. There was a loud banging noise that came on and off throughout the night from the heater which was very disruptive to sleep. Not sure if this was just our room or happens in all the different rooms as I believe the heating system is the same throughout the hotel. There is no ice offered at this hotel, so do not plan on having this. When asking about ice, I was told I could purchase some from their coffee bar if I would like. The hotel was very good about check in we had stayed at another hotel lower in Manhattan the night before and came to this hotel around 9am to drop off belongings they will hold your luggage/belongings before you can check in and also after check out. The room was available, so even though check in was not technically until 3PM we were able to have access to the room at 9AM with no additional charge. Check out was also very easy. You get what you pay for -not bad for the price.

Great place for a single traveler!

The Pod 51 was perfect for a weekend trip to the big apple. The bed was comfy, the wifi was stable and the staff were friendly. The room is very small but really- how much room do you really need?! The location was perfect for getting around via the subway. There is an indicator light above the door letting you know which of the 4 bathrooms on the floor are open and each bathroom was unique & most importantly- clean. I will stay here again.
