“Great location, simple but cosy and inexpensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

True it has no lobby, and no breakfast included. But it's cosy, the rooms are nice and clean and comfortable. And its location is excellent, being near all central spots in Manhattan. Compared to the price of other hotels this one is worth the money, I'd come back.

The hotelroom was very clean and cleaned every day. A good size hotelroom, the bed was a bit small. Never had to wait for the bathroom and it was clean every the time. A good location. For the price an excellent hotel.

Really a steal if you don't want to sleep. The location, cleanliness, even sharing a bath is fine here, it's just the beds are like rocks. Otherwise it was wonderful for the money. They even have a tiny elevator, so you can bring your luggage upstairs. Very helpful people. Towels could use some fluffing up as well.

Room Tip: bring your own bedding, otherwise great!

Hotel 31

In a continuing search for cheap, clean, well located Manhattan hotels my daughter and I stayed at Hotel 31 for a long weekend in late April. The weather was miraculous. Spring time in New York is unlike Spring anywhere else in the world. This is a good hotel. Location is great, just a block and a half from the 33rd St station. It is favorably positioned between two well-reviewed Sushi restaurants and there is a Pain Quotidian just down the street. Rooms are small and a bit 1960s décor but there is some charm. Bathrooms are clean and the staff is friendly. No complaints for cheap digs.

This small hotel was only a few blocks from Times Square, Penn Station and Broadway. My room was small, but clean and the staff was great. The only problem I had was that my magnetic room card would not always work after the cleaning staff had been in to clean my room. The price was great and I would definitely stay here again.
