Pretty basic hotel - get what you pay for hotel. – I have stayed here during the thanksgiving weekend. You get what you pay for in this hotel. Our room has a view of the empire state bldg and was good during the night time. small and cramp hotel room are typical in NYC. convenient to all public transport and restaurant.
The Downside? the concierge desk??? if you call it that....the fat lazy man, everytime we asked him Q's, he always takes a deep breathe, as if we are a real inconvenienced to him. No a good demeanor for a hotel concierge staff.
Would stay here again – Stayed Dec 7-9 2005. Had no problems with bugs, rodents or cleanliness. I stayed by myself in room 510 and had a view of the Empire State Building. Sharing the bathroom was no big deal. My room had its own sink and BLOW DRYER! Also, no need to bring your own towels, soap, shampoo or hand lotion - they were provided.
My only complaints were that the room was too hot during the day and the hallway sometimes smelled of cigarette smoke, of which I'm not sure if the source was hotel staff or all the European guests.
European-style hotel for European travelers. – The Scene
This bargain hotel is set on a quiet, leafy block in residential Murray Hill. Guests can find everything they need within a few blocks: restaurants, shops and supermarkets. What they won't find is classic Manhattan bustle--this is a good thing for seekers of tranquility. The small, darkly hued lobby is offset with Persian rugs and small chandeliers. The clientele is made up mostly of Europeans and Australians.
This eight-story, 100-room property was recently renovated. There are rooms with and without private bathrooms. Make sure you specify upon making a reservation. The accommodations aren't huge, but the comfortable beds and colorfully striped wallpaper make up (almost) for the lack of space. There is cable TV.
Worth staying at... – Depending on the purpose of your trip to NYC, hotel 31 is great for those that have been b4 and those who are first-timers. 5 of my friends packed into their largest room which had a twin and full size bed w/ our own bathroom (there is a communal bathroom too) for $105 a night. We went during new years and $105 is a steal of a price considering you're in the quiet and charming Gramercy/Murray Hill area. Amenities are average and so is the service... but hey you're not staying at the hotel to watch tv or socialize w/ the staff. The Empire State building is 4-5 blocks away and the 6 train is 1 block away. I will definitely be coming here. *warning, elevator is small and slow.
Great Place, Great Price – We have been guests at Hotel 31 on several occasions over the last 5 years and have always been very happy with the hotel. Immaculate rooms, great location and very affordable. I must say that I truly miss Robert he was wonderful and always remembered me when I would call for reservations. The last few times that we stayed their I found that the staff at the front desk were a bit disorganized, and had some communication problems. However I will definitely be back again and again.
Just What We Needed – If your just looking for a fancy hotel your not going to find it at hotel 31. But if u are looking for someplace to put your luguage and sleep this is the best place. Rooms and shared bathrooms were kept veery clean. It was very close to many of new yorks attractions (30 min walk to time square, could see empire state building from room) Only complaint hotel staff was unorganized lost original reservation then gave us wrong room when we got there other then that high;y recommended.
