            Don't expect luxury but the hotel is clean and everything is functioning as it should. Staff nice and efficient. Location excellent with a metro (4,5 &6) around the corner.

            We could live with it but we had a constant noise from outside the room. The bathroom is very very small. Room has almost no daylight.

            The location is fantastic. The shared bathroom was extremely clean.

            Location is excellent, great restaurants (Italian and BBQ) within meters of the hotel. Shared bathroom wasn't a problem at all, I had to wait one time in the full week I've stayed there. The bathrooms are also cleaned multilpe times per day. Room was small but functional and clean.

            The hotel has pretty good wireless internet connection in rooms. Rooms are narrow but clean.

            If you have big suitcase, it would be so hard to move it in and out of the old elevator.

            We chose Hotel 31 purely on it's location and price - it was close to everything we wanted to do during our stay in New York. Although the room was smaller than we were expecting, it was sufficient for us. The staff were very helpful especially with arranging our airport shuttle to Newark Liberty on the early morning of 30th March. We recommend travellers to New York purchasing a CitySights New York hop-on-hop-off bus ticket, visiting the Empire State Building, having lunch at Stage Deli close to Times Square, an evening meal at Fili Ponte's in the Tribeca area of NY (close to Hudson River), Vezzo Pizzeria on Lexington avenue on corner of East 31st Street but to avoid Bella Napoli (either on 5th or Madison avenue).

            Location is good, the hotel is clean, quiet, and safe. Rooms are small but adequate. Furnishings are clean and in good condition. The beds are comfortable. The ambience is charming - reminds me of small European hotels. Heating and cooling units in the room are adjustable and in working order. Only once during our 4 day visit were both shared bathrooms unavailable, and then, just for a few minutes. Shared bathrooms are very well maintained - clean and though simple, very nice. All the Staff persons I encountered were responsive, friendly, helpful, and very competent.
