It is neither a luxury hotel nor a boutique hotel. I have to say it is not decorated good, not new, the hotel 31 is a small old and very cheap hotel, the location is great, near madison ave and close to the Empire State Building and MSG. I see a lot of people complaining about the elevator lift or the accommodations in the hotel, to them I simply said get your expectations set right. If you wanted a 5* hotel accommodations paying 2* prices in Manhattan, it just wont happen.
The staff was friendly enough to make our stay a very comfortable one and the location is great, a walking distance to subway stations and restaurants. I would reserve it again on my next trip.

Room Tip: Choose higher floor rooms instead of the lower ones

just the place for a quick stay in manhattan. close to the underground, close to the airports, hassle-free check in and out. rooms are small though, and shared bathrooms make it less than ideal for longer stays (or something bordering on romantic). no complaints though!

This hotel has midrange prices for NY but its location makes it perfect to explore all the city walking: right in the middle of Manhattan (near the intersection of Park Avenue with 31st). The hotel is very clean (specially the shared bathrooms) and the room, although not big, was confortable enough. Unfortunatly the hotel's lobby doesn't have any place for you to sit while waiting for a cab or someway. Anyway, You will like staying here.

We stayed 5 nights and were very happy with the room, service and location.
The only cons was that the coffee products (there was a coffee maker in the room) were not refilled on a daily basis and we needed to ask the receptionist to take care (which was done within minutes).

Room Tip: Room # 515 was great.

A fantastic location, just a couple of blocks from the Empire State Building. Both the hotel and the street are quiet. Subway station on the corner. Rooms were small but clean. Shared bathrooms were small but clean. The rooms also have a sink. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a budget hotel.

We arrived in the hotel around 8am and didn't expect to get a room, just wanted to leave a luggage. But front desk manager called to a room servise department and ask to clean our room first. After 10 minutes we got our keys. The room were spotless and nice. It's was enough space for 2 people, air conditioner worked noisy as a lot of people mentioned, but we didn't use it because it wasn't hot. Wifi worked well, and I love music in an elevator, it's so funny, you can dance going up to your room. And of course it's delightful to open your eyes in the morning and see Empire State Building from the window. If I could I would add a one more star for this nice 2-stars hotel.
