We took a chance and booked this hotel for a last minute overnight stay in manhattan. It's always nerve-wracking to sift through reviews and pick a hotel. The pod was a little gem we were happy to have chosen! We booked a room with a shared bath to save money, but upon check-in we were upgraded to a private bath room. It was a very nice surprise! And when we checked out the they didn't hesitate to ask if we needed to keep our bags there for the day while we stayed in the city. The location is nice, right off of a subway stop and not far from Grand Central. The hotel was decorated nicely. Very modern, and a little bit cheesy in a euro sort of way, but it's bright and fun. The rooms were very modernly decorated too. Each bunk bed has a small personal tv and a light for reading. It's typical small New York rooms, but it's layed out in such a great, stream-lined way. It you're expecting a big room on par with a chain hotel, then don't go here. If you want a fun, cute, boutique hotel experience, then please go here. We had a wonderful stay!
