Pod 51

Midtown, 230 E 51st St, New York, NY, 10022

Between Upper East Side and Murray Hill, you'll find the first of the Pod's, a new generation of budget hotels. You enter through a trendy lobby. The rooms are very small (11 m2) but the space is used optimally. We offer the Full Pod rooms with a double bed and a small private bathroom with rain shower. On the roof terrace, you can enjoy a magnificent view of the surroundings while enjoying your own picnic!

At the Pod Café and Garden, you can enjoy your breakfast, snacks, a glass of wine or a beer... The terrace remains open as long as the weather permits. The icing on the cake, one of five New York Clinton Halls is located here, a must for lovers of burgers and locally brewed beer. Forget your smartphone, the mission here is to get closer to people. For those looking for style on a budget, The Pod is the ideal hotel.

The buzzing neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen, close to Times Square and just far enough from the twinkling lights, is now home to CIVILIAN. This brand new hotel immerses you in the atmosphere of theaters with special lighting, stage curtains and raw industrial materials that refer to the backstage. The rooms are also bathed in the theater theme. As its name suggests, the Cozy Queen or Twin is small in size and comfortable (cosy) at the same time. The Spacious King or Double are, as you will have understood, more spacious. CIVLIAN is distinguished above all by the experience it reserves for its guests. You only pay for what you consider important. The base with a bed for the night, no frills. During your entire stay, no one will do the cleaning but if necessary, an application allows you to order shampoo or clean towels. If you prefer to find a shiny bathroom and a made bed every day, add housekeeping. Complete your stay with daily breakfast, early check-in or late check-out. WiFi is included, but you have to pay extra for super-fast WiFi. You can even get a day pass to the TMPL around the corner for next to nothing, a wellness center with a 25m saltwater pool, sauna and fitness room. A mixture of art, music and theatre, CIVILIAN blends harmoniously with the big names in Manhattan's creative and theatrical scene. In 2022, the following will gradually open: a restaurant, a secret garden accessible by a retracted entrance and a luxurious lounge where you can have breakfast, work or relax, and a rooftop lounge with a beautiful view.
