It is a cheap hotel, and you get what you pay for. The rooms are small, the shared toilet is a bit weird and the elevator is slow and kinda annoying. But... You live close to everything, you can either walk to every destination in Manhattan within 1 hour, or you can take the subway which is very close. The... More

Stayed at this hotel for six nights in a budget double room with a private bathroom and have to say we thought it was excellent value for money in comparison to other central New York hotels we researched before our trip. It is a quaint hotel still with art nouveau features and the rooms are charmingly decorated in keeping with... More

I agree with previous reviews about this hotel being value for money. This is a budget hotel that tries hard and offers good prices. I would use it again if travelling alone. But I wouldn't take my wife or kid. Its a modestly large step up from a backpackers. If this had been more expensive it would have got a... More

There is no restraurant, but there are plenty of options nearby. We stayed in a 2 Queen Room with shared bath (there is a sink in the room itself). We were a little... More

My 16 year old son and I just returned after a four night stay at Hotel 31. We booked the two single bed room with shared bathrooms and I had requested a room with a view of the Empire State building. It was absolutely wonderful. The shared bathrooms were no problem as I never waited to use one or shower... More

We picked this hotel based on price, but it was much better than expected. It was very clean, and not as small as some of the reviews had stated. Our room had it's own bathroom, but we did take a peek at the bathroom along the hall. They were very clean! Great value for money, perfect location for sightseeing! Would... More
