“Walking Convenience near Shopping Haven & Time Square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

1- Small Rooms but great Value for Money! 2- We got a Twin Bed en suite Washroom 3- Room was clean so no issues...3- Near by 24 HR convenience store and Mc Donalds 4- 5th & 6th Avenue is just 5 Mins Walk 5- Times Square is looong walk but thats the fun part as well.... Plan your Central Park by late afternoon and spend the time at Times Square almost the whole time till Mid Night, ppl are great just sit back and watch... 5- JFK is a fixed rate by taxi, ask reception to call for you it is just USD 55-60 La Guardia between 30-35... If you don't have time dont bother going Broklyn Bridge, ask at Times Square to get your professional photo and change background... Dont take the expensive tour watching Statue of Liberty Honestly, there is a restriction to go up there.... Spend time shopping at 5th Avenue, great offs, not at all expensive, great deals...Have Fun and Enjoy NYC by choosing the decent hotel like Hotel 31 (Remember it is SMALL) No American Breakfast as well...6- Lift is not only small but terrible, that is one thing you will notice

Room Tip: Take it away from the Road

The hotel is in a great location close to restaurants and the subway. Our room and the shared bathroom were very clean. There was however only one working bathroom on our floor which meant we often had to visit other levels. This also meant no sleeping in passed 8am as our room (712) was right next door to the closed bathroom and they were having fixed. We also had noisy neighbours on the otherside of us having a good old time at all hours of the night (if you get my drift). The hotel was very busy and we don't bother with the tiny elevator as it was always in use. Hotel staff were helpful but not friendly but it is NYC! Overall you get what you pay for and this hotel was priced as a hostel so I didn't have big expectations.

Given the price we paid (and this being NYC, everything's relative), this was good value for money and a perfectly nice hotel, without going the extra mile.
We had a shared toilet/shower, but they were perfectly clean and never had a wait so it was not an issue. Room was tiny, but again was clean and had everything we needed (TV, wash basin, electrics etc). You don't go to New York to stay in the room anyways, so I would definitely stay here again. Good location too, 5 mins from Empire State.

If you dont want to spend too much money on a hotel in New York, but still want your own room. This is perfect. It is very close to the empire state building og has some cosy breakfast places right by.

The rooms were small and if you want the cheapest room you have to share bathrooms with the other rooms on the same floor. But in NY you dont want to spend your time in the hotel room, so this was perfect. It was clean, and the bed was ok.

It has a tv, air condition and the staff are very nice. They can also watch your luggage after checkout the last day. We even stored our extra luggage we didnt need while there.

We had a room with two beds and a private bathroom on the eighth floor. Adequate, clean, excellent double beds and pillows, friendly and helpful staff. Presence of coffee options. Bit noisy air conditioning, Little space in the room for suitcases. Only one chair. We missed a fridge. Great location with many restaurants and opportunities to use takeaway meals. The hotel is situated next to a small but excellent sushi restaurant.

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.
