We were anxious about the shared bathroom but this was not a problem! It was cleaned extremely regularly. Our room was small but the storage facilities were good and the sink in the room was very handy. The staff we came across were very friendly and helpful and we would definitely stay here again as the location was so good - close to the subway but also ideal for walking north and south in manhattan.

It is a good, very clean basic hotel in a great location. Nice staff. The man who showed us to our room was about the same age as the hotel with a quirky sense of humour. Great value. Free WIFI. We would stay again.

I wanted a cheap comfortable free wifi hotel in close proximity to transport and sites and restrains in NY and I didn't want to have to sell my kidney to afford it.. And that's what I got. Only 4 stars as nobody returned my emails to answer questions after booking this hotel. I did get an email (generic) a few days before I arrived welcoming me to their hotel which set my mind at ease some.
Would definitely stay again.
The room was super small but I was expecting that.
The bathroom down the hall was kept very clean and tidy the entire visit.

Room Tip: Try and get one away from the elevator as it is old and noisy.

Pretty old style hotel in a great location for visiting the sights of New York city. We were there during those hot days of June. The room was small but very clean and cool with air conditionning. The staff was nice. WiFi good (and free). Excellent value for money in an expensive city. Ü

We stayed at Hotel 31 in March this year. Lovely old style hotel in a fantastic location for visiting the sights of NYC. The weather was bitterly cold, but the rooms were toasty warm. Room wasn't huge but spotlessly clean as was the bathroom (you could see the Empire State Building from the window). At the end of they day you don;t need a large hotel room, you won;t be spending much time in there. Excellent value for money in an expensive city. We will stay here again when we bring the children back. Try Shorty's (on the same street), delicious food, chips and a cheesy sauce to die for!
