Being an affordable place to sleep. But disappointed to not have a bathroom ensuite. I didn't realize when i booked this time. I normally get a room at Pod WITH a bathroom and it's fine. This one did not have one and was a real pain.
CHECK to see if you have an en suite bathroom!
Compact room but has everything needed, even natural light. I had room with en suite toilet and shower.
Free coffee either in room or downstairs. I don’t mind the tiny room but not at the high price (over $200). Need USB outlets.
Great location. Within walking distance of iconic sights like Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and Times Square. Near great shopping districts and good restaurants. Cute rooftop deck. Clean, trendy bathrooms and rooms.
Noisy and bright location. Difficult to sleep. Not the most relaxing.
Tiny and overpriced but clean and good location
Very tiny for the price but great location, clean.
No fridge in room.
Clean and convenient location.
Tight for two adults... cruise ship bathroom.
I really liked the lights in your room telling you if someone is using the bathroom.
Charming city hotel
I love this hotel. I’m use to suites and thought the size of the room would be a problem. It wasn’t! It’s location is so great we were barely there. While we were there it was comfortable.
The shower head is in the center of the shower. Thank goodness I brought my shower cap.
Great Price Friendly Staff Wonderful rooftop view Perfect space for one Close to subway
No outlets near bed The bathrooms were not clean after 7pm
Just small but that's also the point
