    Add to myNY added

    2 Stars | This historical and cozy hotel is located just 1.6 kilometers from Union Square. The hotel might only have 2 stars, but the rooms are modern and some even have a terrace. If you want to explore New York by bike, you can rent one for free at the hotel.

  7. 07

    Hotel 31

    Hotels & Accommodations in Midtown
    Add to myNY added

    2 Stars | Hotel 31 is located between Park and Lexington Heights on 31st Street, hence the name. Around the hotel there are various cafés, restaurants & bars – we were really satisfied! The Empire State Building, Times Square, Herald Square and Madison Square Park are within easy walking distance. The hotel is almost a bargain by New York standards: prices for double rooms start at 120 EUR (excluding breakfast). The rooms are deliberately kept simple, but this is absolutely fine for a couple of nights. And you will likely use your hotel room mostly for sleeping anyway. Some rooms have their own bathroom – others have a shared bathroom on the same floor and an extra bathroom with toilet. These are cleaned several times a day and are therefore pretty much spotless. The hotel won’t win any design awards in the near future, but the location, the price and the cleanliness make Hotel 31 a recommendation!

  8. 08

    La Quinta Inn Queens

    Hotels & Accommodations in Astoria
    Add to myNY added

    2.5 Stars | An inexpensive hotel with a good location – not far from Williamsburg and Manhattan. The price includes breakfast, and you can use the fitness centre.
