Myself, my wife and 16 yr old son spent two nights in this hotel earlier this week. We had a room with two double beds and a bathroom. The hotel is old fashioned but is spotless clean. The lift is the old style, its small and slow. We were on the 7th floor. The hallways outside the room are also... More

I was very surprised with this hotel! i was expected it to be very bad for some reason but it wasn't! Very large room for NYC standards for a solo traveller booking the 1 person room! Shared bathrooms no problem. Good air conditioning and a great location.

The shared bathroom was meticulously cleaned it seems after every usage by any guest! The rooms are nothing fancy and the blanket was a bit artificial feeling, but fine. Carpets oldish and slightly musty.

This is a low-budget hotel with a great location in Midtown. Stayed with my teenager son for 3 nights. Loved the authentic New Yorker style. The two shared bathrooms were clean and we never experienced both of them being occupied at the same time. Very clean all over. Stayed in room 510 with a nice view of Empire State Building.... More

Hotel 31 is excellent value for it's location. You can be at Madison Square Garden in 10 minutes walking... Grand Central is 10 minutes walk away... and the rest of Manhattan is easily accessible on the underground. Rooms are small and some share bathrooms... but beds are comfortable and the staff are helpful. Only massive downside is the useless internet.... More

I am grateful my partner and I trusted all the positive reviews on here for Hotel 31 before we booked four nights here. We just returned from our NYC trip and both agree we would book here again. CUSTOMER SERVICE Both hotel clerks we encountered were very kind and answered our questions. Check-in and check-out were smooth. No problems here.... More

I stayed there for 2 nights. In the room, it has one bedroom, one small sink & mirror, one pair of chair&desk. I shared the bathroom with other people. The decoration was quite ancient, but good for solo.

The hotel is exactly what I wanted from my first trip to NYC. It was so cute and had the old school elevator with the sliding metal door and corny music on the way up! The room was quite small but that was all you needed because we didn't spend much time in there anyway, too much to see! There... More
