    great location and nice design room

    Good location, good transport connections Cheapest I could find for a single traveller with no comments about bedbugs on bedbugregistry.com, also contacted manager who said they were constantly working on this. Experienced no bedbugs during my stay (for this alone, it probably was worth the money) Good ipod docking station and wifi

    Don't forget the taxes - I thought $740 for 4 days, single person, was very expensive for what you got Un-ironed sheets, not really what you expect when you're paying this much money Horrible piped music in lifts and showerrooms Initial contact with staff on check-in, but then never again, no friendly hellos...

    The hotel is super clean, with a good enviroment and close to the subway.

    The internet was not available most of the time in my room.

    Staff are extremely helpful and polite. Free WIFI throughout the hotel. Clean rooms. Shared bathrooms were spacious and always clean, never any trouble finding one that wasnt in use. Great location, near enough to walk to almost all the cities attractions, but also away from the direct hustle and bustle. Quiet location so sleeping was not a problem. Cafe served drinks and breakfast which was good value.

    nothing at all, great hotel which I would recommend to people over and over again.

    The hotel is great!! Clean, with very efficient and friendly staff, I defenetly recommend this hotel. The cost, comparing to other New York hotels is very competitive.

    Location

    The cost was exhorbitant for the level of hotel. The cheapest rooms were either shared dormitory or shared bathroom so in order to have own bathroom the cost was exceptional @ $300 per night plus taxes.

    Hotel was welcoming with a good atmosphere reception area. I really liked the modern decor in the rooms and public areas. Room was expensive but not by new York standards and was as good as more expensive hotels in the city. It was great that we could get a bagel and coffee before we hit the streets. I had no reason for complaint.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The staff was great and the hotel is surrounded by pubs and restaurant which was great walking distances

    We found a toe nail on the carpet of our room which made us wonder how clean is our room?

  • Older travelers

    Efficient use of space in relatively small rooms through use of cleverly thought out modern fittings. Well located for restaurants, theatres, shopping.

    Rooms really are quite small (hence the hotel name!).

  • Single
    6.6

    Cleanliness Simple and enough service Stylish design Shower (satisfied with water pressure)

    I thought that sink is a little bit small to use. But it was not really big deal.

  • Group of friends

    The location, the roof top

    The room are extremly smalls

  • Couple
    9.0

    Lobby design, rooftop deck and patio garden; vibe, second room that we got (first was waaay too small!)

  • Single
    9.2

    Given that NYC is a very expensive place to stay, you get in the POD hotel an excellent value for your money. It is more then expected, it is clean, it is modern, nice amenity - the garden and the roof, and very good situated in the town. Only to recommend.

    If ever I would mention the boring breakfast with no variety, but the breakfast was okay, the price as well. If you need something else: just around the corner is a PAX where you can save some dollars.
