I stayed in Hotel 31 again and was happy that nothing changed for the worse. Still good, helpful service at the front desk. My room was tiny but clean and the bathroom on the floor as well, very clean. The only thing I didn't like was that the temperature in my room was too high and I couldn't find how... More

This hotel was room only with shared bathroom which were spotlessly clean and was located just 5 minutes from Fifth avenue one way and Third avenue the other way. The room had no view sadly but maybe that was a good thing as it was quiet as the streets are busy with horns honking and sirens going all the time.... More

Our room was clean (thankfully our room had a private bathroom),the front desk staff were friendly and the price was great for a hotel in NYC. My friend booked the hotel and decided to show me pictures from the reviews on our way to NYC. I was very unhappy ( the hotel appeared to be old and dingy) , but... More

I truly think you'd be hard pressed to find somewhere that's better value for what you pay! Great location, spotlessly clean, lovely staff and nice rooms. Absolutely will be returning next time I'm in NYC.

Even though this hotel was "Hostel-like" with shared bathrooms, my husband and I were very pleased with this hotel. We are age 55 and travel alot and would use this hotel again. The rooms were small but clean and neat with a sink and a closet and TV. The shared bathrooms were nice and always clean. The hotel staff was... More

I definitely did not expect this hotel - when I booked it for New Years at less than 600 pounds for the week (competitors were at least 1,000) I thought I was staying in a hostel, not least because I booked a shared bathroom. However, the Hotel was centrally placed (walking distance - literally a block - to the 6... More

Good location, can walk to the Empire State Building and Times Square. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the hotel is spotless. We didn't have a bathroom in our room and it wasn't a problem, there was always a bathroom open and the bathrooms were always clean. The bed is a bit uncomfortable but that is expected for... More

Stayed on my own for a couple of nights at new year. I had booked a single with shared bathroom. When I arrived I was given a double bedroom which was nice. I was on floor 6. There are two bathrooms to be shared with 14 rooms on this floor. Didn't have a problem with use as it was always... More

Great location. Only time I have ever gone to a hotel and the rooms were nicer than the pictures. Great location in midtown and cheap price. Next time I go to NYC I am staying here again. Most importantly my experience was bug free!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
