“New York trip”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

A reasonable hotel at a reasonable price for New York. Good location and very helpful staff. Very clean. My room was a small double but fine for one person. Shared bathroom proved not as much of a problem as I had thought. Not star luxury but fine for a few days sightseeing.

Just what like everyone's saying in the reviews (if not all, majority), Hotel 31 is a very convenient & a safe place to stay. Its strategic location will take you immediately to nearby subway stations & eating places (whether easy to grab foods or posh ones). Must-see landmarks like Empire State Building and Times Square, to name a few, are reachable by foot. If you’re on budget, there’s DUANEreade shopping and drug store to grab breads, fruits, drinks, toiletries, medicines, etc. The cosi Café and Café Guy & Gallard are just at the corner of the street for a nice breakfast/coffee cravings. For Starbucks lovers, it will not be missed as it’s only across the road. In one of the corners, you’ll also find pizzeria resto. Save the jap food cravings as Umi Sushi is a doorstep away from the hotel! On bathroom sharing, firstly, it’s always unoccupied. So it’s always free to use! Secondly, cleanliness is maintained that it looks like it is being cleaned every after every guests used it! I got a small room that met my basic needs (electronic safe box, TV, air condition, iron, towel). It comes with toiletries too. With European interior design, expect wallpaper around and dark furniture. I didn’t have concern with night sleep as well as the environment is quiet except for the air condition when running that produced a little noise but this didn’t bother me at all. As I’m enjoying my stay, I extended an extra night & the hotel manager was very helpful to confirm immediately that he’ll reserve the room for me. The hotel kept my luggage after I checked out on last day as I still have time to go around before I headed to the airport. Btw, to those who are first time travellers to NYC, the cheapest way next to the subway train from airport to midtown Manhattan & vice-versa is by shuttle bus. Look for ticket agents of NYC airporter. It’ll cost you only $16 (one way) direct to your hotel. Thanks for the nice stay Hotel 31!

Room Tip: If possible, choose a room facing the street for viewing.

Stayed here for 4 nights in June'14. Was in NYC to take in the sights and sounds of the the Big Apple. The room was a small queen bed with a TV, electronic safe and a AC. Sharing bath was not a problem as it was always empty and clean whenever I wanted to use it. The best part of this is the location, best for a tourist to walk to in Manhattan, just 5 mins away from Empire State Building and very close to 33rd street metro on park avenue. The restaurants in and around the hotel are amazing for breakfast.
Super Location, Super Price and Ideal for a Tourist who wishes to explore NYC walking and by using the subway!

Room Tip: No problem in taking a room with a shared bath

We recently stayed at Hotel 31 for 5 nights. It ticked all our boxes - clean, reasonably priced, central location and very close to a subway station.We enjoyed the fact that it is not a "typical" hotel, but has it's own identity and decor. We used a shared bathroom, and only once during our stay could we not use it when we wanted to. Our bedroom was spotlessly clean, as were the bathrooms on our floor.Having free wi-fi was great, it is something we look for in a hotel.Any members of staff, we met, were all friendly and spoke to us. We found the Guy and Gallard Cafe on the corner to be good for breakfast. If you want a clean,reasonably priced to sleep in, Hotel 31 is for you.
