Tiny but adequate
Nice tidy, clean room. Needs more shelf space for traveler toiletries. Soundproof Windows open if you want to hear the city. Location is very close to B'way and Times Square

2-night stay in NYC
Very small room in central location (42nd St & 9th Ave). The hotel is a block from the subway and a few more steps to Time Square. And, there are plenty of restaurants within a block or so. The room does not have fridge. Otherwise, no complaints.

Would stay again for sure
I loved my stay at the Times Square Pod Hotel. Great location, clean and everyone was very friendly.

My Pick is POD
I love the concept of POD hotels and every one I’d visited has been 5 star for location, cleanliness, availability, comfort, safety, needed amenities and pricing. To say “no frills” is really truthful as it’s not padded chairs, fancy bedspreads and “pretty” or cluttered décor. It’s absolutely a straightforward smart hotel service with all you need for today’s travelers including convenient and ample charging ports (try finding that in old hotels with outlets behind the headboard you can reach or already overloaded on an extension cord; in so many stays I’ve experienced this frustration in the past (that were crazy more expensive btw),

But but comfortable.
Rooms were clean, comfortable and efficient. Tiny and only one metal chair to sit on other than the bed. But I don't come to NYC to sit in a hotel. Room was quiet. Staff was very friendly and efficient at check in.

Good for a quick trip
Good stay if you're solo or a small group. The location is convenient, it's affordable for NY, and felt safe.

This hotel is great for the cost, but the room could be cleaner. You could see stains and other marks in the bathroom and throughout, showing that the room had not been carefully cleaned in a while.

Perfect for our needs
perfect for our needs. used it to sleep and rest. only there 4 nights. location was fantastic for the price. one long block to the subway. Times square likewise about 2 blocks. Hells Kitchen bars, restaurants, coffee right there. Milieu of NYC. Cosmopolitan. Lovely experience.

I’d stay again
I would stay again. Check in was speedy, room was clean and quiet. Staff were friendly and professional. I had a double room which is not much bigger than the double bed itself (plus a small bathroom). Totally fine as I was solo. If two people it would be quite cozy! Very little storage for bags. Mild criticism: The a/c didn’t work. They sent a technician immediately who claimed it was but a/c never cooled the room. Thankfully the windows opened. The music volume in the elevators is pointlessly loud and annoying. Coming off a loud Manhattan street it should be soothing, not jarring.
