Manage Expectations and you will love Pod 39
This is the third time I've stayed here, and it has been a positive experience each time and a great value. I'm 6'2" and have no problem with the very tiny space. If you manage expectations about space and just need a place to sleep and shower Pod 39 willl be perfect. It is a two minute walk from Grand Central which makes getting anywhere in the city easy. Staff has been friendly. Highly recommended. Lots of food options close by.

A little more privacy for the toilet would be great but it is a pod! Very edgy and clean. Restaurant and bar are great!

Decent but stylish no-frills hotel
if it costs 20 to 50% less than the other hotels you’re considering, it’s a good deal. If not, keep looking. The amenities are minimal. There is no iron or ironing board or even closet in the room. no coffee maker no microwave no small fridge. that said, I have stayed here twice because it fit the pricing requirement I had (see above), It’s a wonderful location very nearby Grand Central Station. The area is very safe, the hotel itself has recently been remodeled tastefully and the vibe is very hip. there is supposed to be someone at the front desk 24 hours a day, which is good. However they’re not always out where they are visible. One night I came in late and there was a really drunk guy who was wandering the lobby and got all up in my face. Turned out fine but it did freak me out that nobody was actually standing out by the desk where they could intervene easily. The next day the staff apologize that I’d had that experience and assured me that someone was in the back office so all I had to do was call out for help. sounds reasonable, and like I said everything turned out fine. But I do think the hotel should have a rule that if someone is supposed to be at the front desk 24 hours they should be out there where they can see what’s going on in the lobby. other than that overall I would say my stay was good, and I would stay there again because like I said it’s a great location it can be very very affordable and it’s reasonably comfortable.
