The staff was very accommodating and pleasant. I arrived at 10:00am and was able to check in my bags, and the receptionist let me know they would call me as soon as a room was available. An hour and a half later, I received the call and was able to check in early! The hotel is in a convenient location. Public transportation, bars, restaurants, a 24-hours Duane Reade, and a WholeFoods within a 5-minute walk from the hotel. I plan on staying here again in the near future.

The property was very clean, modern, all mechanical aspects operated very well. Very clean, functional. Staff was not real friendly, but I felt they 'accepted' me and my wife. Also my wife liked security aspect of the room key access required to operate the elevator going up to the rooms. No coffee in the morning, I know a bit of a small point, but to me critical. I Need a cup of coffee in the morning. A fairly good cup was available next door, but would take an average cup available easily to take back to the room and wake up in the morning. Last point, the bar on the front of the hotel had nice staff, younger crowd, which I liked (I am older) but nice vibe, and they were fun. I came back to write more as there were more questions after this free form comment. I think everyone likes to be treated with respect, so from that perspective I felt we, as older couple, were 'accepted', just wanted to emphasize as I do not think older folks are their target audience. If you are in that group, may want to consider. But to the positive, the room next to us had a low spy hole on the door, for someone in a wheel chair, I thought that was cool.

Totally acceptable. Toilet right under the showerhead is a little weird. But… I figured a “pod” would be innovatively tight-quartered.

Very nice stay this past weekend at the Pod Brooklyn. Took care of my late arrival with no problem and made the stay easy and enjoyable. A great alternative to staying in Manhattan, easy train/metro into the city and a great area in Williamsburg to survey while staying at the Pod. Lots of shops, restaurants and charming local nearby. Room was clean and efficient. I would not consider the "Queen" room a queen bed however - it would only fit one! If you have more than one person staying, it would be best to get the Bunk beds. I think this place will become my new option for Manhattan lodgings. Also, note the new mexican diner across the street is a must. Can't go wrong, this was a perfect hideaway.

The hotel was clean and comfortable, but somewhat cramp. If traveling with friends, I highly suggest getting separate rooms. When booking the rooms (my brother was also on the trip) i didn't realize just how small they are. The toilet is literally in the shower. There is a place to hang clothes over the bedside table, and there are 3 or 4 hooks that pull down in the wall for hanging other items. No dresser, so no place to store your clothes unless you put them on the tiny desk. No chair, but this a metal backless cube to sit on at the desk. I gave the hotel 5 stars because it was very clean, the lobby was spotless. The staff were polite and helpful. Honestly, I have no complaints. I was simply taken by surprise by the size of the room. On a side note, there is a restaurant that can be accessed by the hotel lobby. However, the restaurant is not part of the hotel. The food was good.
