Midtown, 400 W 42nd Street, New York, NY, 10036
The Pod Times Square is a micro-hotel located on Broadway not far from Times Square. However, in your room with soundproof windows and blackout curtains, you quickly forget that you are only a few steps from the entertainment. Like peas in a pod, the space of the 665 rooms is optimized. You stay in an immaculate room with a queen-size bed (13 m2) or with bunk beds (11 m2), functionally furnished and with enough USB ports to charge all your gadgets. You can even sing under your rain shower in your glass-walled bathroom. Wi-Fi is free in your room and in the lobby. You won't find unnecessary expensive decoration or gadgets, but a very competitive price. Because in 'The City' there are so many other cool ways to spend your money! When you walk through the lobby, you find The Polynesian, a famous cocktail bar that makes you feel like you are on an exotic island. Palm trees, wicker chairs and blue velvet sofas make you forget the hustle and bustle of New York while sipping an exotic cocktail.Book now

Coming home to Midtown? It is possible at Arlo Midtown Times Square. This hotel, perfectly located between Times Square and the trendy and booming district of Hudson Yard, immediately seduces. The 489 rooms are modern and elegantly decorated. Just like in the Arlo SoHo and NoMad hotels, they are functional and equipped with all the gadgets for an urban explorer and they are also more spacious than the micro rooms of these sister hotels. With “Nearly Ninth”, a great catering concept has been implemented, which can be found in different places in the hotel. A breakfast at the Coffee Bar in the morning, snacks or a drink at the Bar + Lounge, a craving for Italian cuisine at the restaurant or a fantastic cocktail at the rooftop bar on the 26th floor with a breathtaking view of Hudson Yards, everything is possible here. From spring through fall, you can use an Arlo bike for free on a first-come, first-served basis. Day or night, the place is wonderfully quiet, while in the evening there is a vibrant vibe. In short, the perfect place for those who thrive in a new hotel with a worldly and trendy atmosphere.
Belvedere is a wonderful family hotel with a prime location on West 48th Street, in the heart of the theater district and within walking distance of Times Square. Your best choice for a first-time visit to New York. Connections customers have felt at home here. No wonder they are many to return. TThe spacious and elegant rooms in neutral tones offer impeccable comfort. Each room is equipped with a kitchenette with fridge and microwave. Our tip: choose a luxurious executive room with individual airco and deluxe skincare products. A Superior room has been recently refurbished in light colours. In the evening you can visit the authentic Brazilian steakhouse Churrascaria Plataforma. In general there is a warm atmosphere. It is certain your stay will not lack flavour!
A boutique hotel in the middle of Chinatown? Yes it does exist... This brand new establishment at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge at the crossroads of the oldest but now the trendiest districts of the Big Apple: Soho, Lower East Side, Tribeca and Brooklyn. Several metro stations within 500 meters will take you to the 4 corners of Manhattan and Brooklyn in no time. It was the elements of the old Chinatown that served as inspiration for the design while modern decor touches reflect modern Chinatown. The oak-floored rooms are flooded with light from huge windows and decorated with works of art from the New York art scene. Treat yourself and book a room with a view of the Skyline (Midtown) or the city (Lower East Side and Manhattan Bridge), at an additional cost. And the icing on the cake is The Crown, the lounge-terrace on the 21st floor with a magnificent view of the Manhattan skyline.
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.
