6/10 Good

Barely adequate
This is not a hotel in the traditional sense of the word. I got a room with a bathroom. It was tiny and only fit for sleeping - and only adequate for that. I paid approximately $200 per night. In sum, this is closer to a hostel, aimed at students.

Loved Pod 51
I really enjoyed Pod51, it was just right for my solo stay. Small but comfortable, well fitted out room, slightly dormish feel but very clean, comfortable bed and linens, spotless little bathroom and shower, thoughtfully designed. The hotel is located a block and a half from the subway to JFK, many restaurants nearby, an easy walk to the theater district and Times Square.
