Fabulous 8.8 From 2,151 reviews

Fair 4.0
Watch for hidden fees.
Initial impression was a 137 dollar hidden fee that was in addition to the “total to be charged by the hotel” quoted on Was quite upset about this as this was not clear from the email quotation. Hotel rooms were v small but this is partly to be expected due to the location, which is very close to Times Square in midtown Manhattan. Lack of any drawer or cupboard made it difficult to navigate the room with two occupants. In general hotel was very clean and centrally located, and staff are very friendly. Had an issue with having mail delivered to the hotel, which was not delivered to my room. Had to make three separate requests and trips to reception throughout the day until the package was located and delivered.

Over billed unexplainable actual 335.42 billed 381
The service proposed on the Internet was good but unfortunately no breakfast option was inclusive on the online pre booking. Is inconveniencing to lodge in a hotel and the next morning start rooming the streets looking for breakfast food court to go to. Also while pre booking through the site clearly states how much I will pay to the hotel which was 335.42usd all tax inclusive final payment for 2 nights and on checking out I was billed 381.32usd. Where the extra 50usd came from is still unexplainable to me by Pod Hotels. I have been using for years and they have never been wrong with their precise fee for tickets and hotels but Pod showed otherwise. 2 days after I was in Hyatt Place Washington and on checkout I paid exact what was quoted online by I seriously need an explanation by Pod Hotels.

Poor 2.0
Additional fee for 20 usd per daybat check out!!
Everyting was fine untill the last day, i made reservation throuhg expedia, i was told that everything is covered and this was also written on my confirmation note. When we arrived at the hotel they wanted to have my credit card, they said it is just for security reasons....however on check out we were charged for additional 20 usd per day!!! So the prise of the hotel was not so good anymore, i will write a complaint for misleading customers with prize of a hotel, Natasa

Exceptional 10.0
Just Perfect
This Hotel was just perfect for a sightseeing trip to New York. Everything was within walking distance and close to all the subway and bus routes. Basic, but clean and quite. Very comfy bed with large TV on the wall. Toilet was spacious and the shower was excellent with really hot water. A nice large safe was provided for extra security. You cant access the room floors without a key card which felt extra safe. We were running late for check in, and a quick email to the hotel was quickly responded too reassuring everything was fine
