Last weekend I decided to take a last minute trip out to New York but didn’t have much of a budget for the hotel so I decided to check out “The Pod” a boutique hotel in Midtown that boasts high style, reasonable rates, and extremely compact sleeping quarters. I knew what I was getting into when I booked the hotel but still was surprised when I opened the door to my room. The space was tiny
. That being said it was surprisingly comfortable, an impressively designed space and a great model for small space living without sacrificing style.
The bed frame was fitted with drawers so belongings could be stowed out of the way. There was a small wall mounted TV and the lamps were wall mounted as well. They fit in a desk by extending a shelf between the bed and the wall with a Eiffel chair that tucked in neatly.
The bathroom was small but well styled with the toilet on one side of the curtain and a shower on the other with a rain-head and subway tiles. The petite sink was in the main space (convenient if you’re brave enough to share such a small room) with storage for towels and extra toilet paper rolls underneath.
The hotel also boasted a lobby with couches to sit and socialize, a large roof deck with a view, an outdoor garden café and a very helpful concierge should you want to venture from your room.
