Reviewed March 24, 2012

Great to find a hotel for a reasonable price, good location, nice staff, clean, sympathic, etc. The double rooms are a bit small but with a few dollars more you can get a two-bed room, These rooms are latge and great!. In summary, great value for money.

Staying on a budget, this was the option to take! Placed in a perfect location walking distance to everything, all the attractions and more! Rooms were small, though on a budget it was a perfect choice!

My fiance and I paid a flying visit to NYC and stayed 2 nights at Hotel 31. The room was cheap and had a shared bathroom, so our expectations were quite low... we wanted somewhere to sleep and nothing more. So we were pleased to be pleasantly surprised... the location was absolutely fantastic, within walking distance on the Empire State Building, Penn Station, Times Square... we also walked down to the 9/11 Memorial and the Staten Island ferry terminal, and also up to Central Park, but appreciate that this isn't everyone's idea of 'walking distance'! The room was on the small side and the window looked out onto a brick wall (essentially rendering the room windowless), but it was clean with a TV, phone and wash basin, and did exactly what we wanted it to do - gave us somewhere to sleep! There were two shared bathrooms near to our room, both were clean and we never had to queue. One was right next to our room and my fiance said that he woke a couple of times during the night due to people using the bathroom, but I slept right through. All in all, a great budget hotel which provides a fantastic base for exploring the city, but probably not for you if you like your hotels with a bit of luxury!

Hotel 31 is a clean, charming, older hotel that is conveniently located in the Murray Hill section of the city. You get a lot of bang for the buck here. Just spent the weekend in NYC with my BFF. We rented a two bedroom with ensuite bathroom. Just off of 31st and Park Avenue, You'e in walking distance to The Empire State Building, Times Square and just about anywhere you wish to go. Very satisfied!!! Would return in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: corner suites seem to be larger, but no view.

Was pleasantly surprised by our room at Hotel 31. The room was typical of NYC hotels, on the small side, but clean and well appointed. Hard to beat at the cost. Many good restaurants within walking distance and the subway is around the corner. Great value in mid-town.

Somehow it is close to the Penn station, and it is not. It is 5+ blocks away from Penn station so you may want to take the subway still (1 station only though, and there is not elevator in the subway, as I was told).
The air-conditioner was very noisy.
Still it is quite convenient and of lower cost so it may not be a bad choice if you are on a tight budget, and schedule.
