Pros:Excellent location

Cons:Small room

A
4.0 Mediocre
Pros:Being an affordable place to sleep. But disappointed to not have a bathroom ensuite. I didn't realize when i booked this time. I normally get a room at Pod WITH a bathroom and it's fine. This one did not have one and was a real pain.

Cons:CHECK to see if you have an en suite bathroom!

E
7.1 Good
Pros:Compact room but has everything needed, even natural light. I had room with en suite toilet and shower.

Cons:Free coffee either in room or downstairs. I don’t mind the tiny room but not at the high price (over $200). Need USB outlets.

A
8.8 Great
