The quietness and cleanliness. The attached bar was nice as well.

Very modern and open layout. Only complaint was the "breakfast" options at the on site restaurant. Maybe it's because it was mlk day their options were limited.

Such a great idea! Compact but very clean and functional, which was important for us! Will definitely stay here again!

The property was great, but when i arrived, I parked in front of the hotel and ask the young lady checking me in if I could park there and she said as long as there were no construction signs i was good to go. When i came out the next morning, may car had been towed away and it cost me $115 parking ticket and $185 for getting it towed. Kind of ruined my whole stay.

Nice efficient rooms. Great pub on the first floor.

The room is very very small. I was not away the it was a micro room and I paid a regular room price for it. I also noticed a day before checking in that the rooms were going for less than half of what I paid.

All reviews acknowledge the toilet is in the shower. yes use it before you shower! The rooms are like small dive boat cabins. But...A 2 inch cockroach shared my room with me until I trapped it under the trashcan, and my “shoilet” drain didnt drain at all. When I spoke to the very “hip” desk attendant, he said “well you booked through another website, so take it up with them. He was languidly disinterested in how my stay was. The only positive thing I can say is it is a good location. Obviously staff are trained to take the money and run!

Good value, very clean! The room has what you need, smart design to maximize the space

Terrific little hotel! Will definitely stay there next time I’m in Brooklyn!

We weren’t rally sure what to expect after we heard the toilet and the shower are in the same stall. But we loved it here! Think IKEA model. We loved all of the out door space even though it was over 90 degrees and humid. The rooftop bar and restaurant were great. The staff was friendly. We would stay here again for sure. Great Brooklyn location in Williamsburg.

I absolutely loved the property, the room reminded me of Japan. The cleanest hotel I've ever visited and staff were amazing. I was very comfortable in my pod. Everything I needed was there. Top notch.

The tours and location were excellent. I particularlly enjoyed the ambience

The lobby is very hip and the bar/cafe that is practically attached to the property looked appealing, although I arrived too late to check it out. The staff at Pod Brooklynn were okay but the actual room was gross. My room was behind an elevator (or sandwiched between elevators) so I heard everything! This included the sound of any conversations, as well as the elevator door opening and closing. My room card did not "swipe" the elevator to move. I stood in the elevator and swiped and swiped and swiped - nothing happened. Another patron stepped into the elevator and she tried too - nothing happened. We had to leave the elevator and ask for help at the front desk. An employee walked over and swiped several times too before it worked. If this was my only complaint I would not be writing this commentary. The room smelled sour and stuffy. The room was clean, but did not "feel" hygienic. Again, if this was my only complaint I would not be writing this. TOILET-IN-THE-CLOSET! I was shocked when I saw that the toilet was in a tiny narrow closet that had a clear door. I went downstairs and told them that there must have been a mistake because there was no shower. They explained that the toilet-in-the-closet had shower attachments on the wall and that toilet-in-the-closet WAS the shower. I canceled my reservation for the next two nights.

A very cool hotel. Great outdoor spaces in the middle of Williamsburg.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Pod Hotel. The tiny room had all the amenities one needs and the slick decor added to the space age feel. We reserved a bunk room which was GREAT because we each had a TV at our feet and our own reading lamp. There was plenty of sunlight during the day and quiet at night. The outdoor courtyards were comfy, the rooftop bar fun. There's a little, friendly grocery store right next door. For the price, you think of fleabag places but the Pod was anything but. We will stay here again.
