We had 3 different hotels during this trip, and Giraffe was by far the best. The rooms were very nice and large, especially for NYC measurements, the bathroom was so spacious that 2 people could be in there at once. The hotel was very quiet, we didn't hear our neighbours AT ALL, again very special in NYC. And we loved the little rooftop terrace and the fact that wine, cheese and crackers were served around 5pm daily, we felt as much at home as you can do in a foreign city. We can clearly recommend this hotel!

Beautiful and modern hotel centrally located. Walking distance to a lot of places, five minutes to flatiron building, ten minutes to empire state building, half an hour to times square, half an hour to greenwich/soho. Rooms are tastefully decorated, very spacious. The balcony is a plus, though too cold to stay on it too long at this time of the year. Staff are very friendly. Best thing is the complimentary drinks and snacks throughout the day, especially the cheese and wine in the evening. Breakfast though a bit simple, enough to fill the belly. Sometimes need to share a table. Would highly recommend this hotel, and already thinking of our return visit.

we stayed in a one bedroom suite which was a complimentary upgrade from 1 room with two queens. This was fantastic and really appreciated as it gave the four of us a little more space and privacy. Only problem i had was the sofa bed was not comfy (they never are). BUT, i would definitely stay there again if it were only two people. The staff are wonderful, helpful and really go out of their way to provide any assistance you may need. Complimentary breakfast and wine reception in the evenings made our stay sensational. we all loved it!! WiFi was also fabulous and much appreciated.

A beautiful boutique hotel with a lot of personality. Hotel has a charming quality in a lovely area of New York. I would love to visit New York in December for a different feel of the city in winter. My choice would be Hotel Giraffe.

Lovely, very clean hotel with lots of great 'extras' - wine and cheese, breakfast, fee wi-fi. Has a nice rooftop patio, but it was so crowded both times we went, we couldn't really enjoy it. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Good sized rooms for NYC. Sweet little balcony with chairs - had a coffee and enjoyed the sun out there. Very comfy bed. All the amenities you would need. Nice late check out of 1pm, which was a treat. Turn down service was a nice touch. A little pricey once all the taxes are thrown in, but hey, it's NYC after all! Had a great stay at this hotel and will definitely book again.

This was our first visit to NYC for over 20 years and what a difference! The streets felt completely safe (as did the subway) & people were friendly and helpful. The hotel is well located for getting around Manhattan & the immediate area had some lovely restaurants & bars. The hotel itself looks and feels new (not sure how old it is) but the furnishings were all fresh, clean and contemporary. The communal area near the lobby was comfortable and relaxed and we took advantage of the daily afternoon complimentary wine & cheese. We were a family of four including two teenage kids and booked a room with two queen sized beds. The room was adequate space-wise but storage space was a little cramped for 4 people. There was the option of booking two rooms, which would have given more room but been a lot more expensive - so this is a minor critisism. Overall I would thoughly recommend this hotel.

I had a nice room, but there is no way to keep out the rumbling noise of the trucks at 4 am. The shades do not do the trick. They need some heavy sound insulating drapes!

Really enjoyed our stay at the Giraffe. Service improves when you remember to tip. (As Brits, we were sometimes apt to forget this). Queen sized room was quite spacious. Bathroom was clean and warm. Price is very good when all the extras are included.

We travelled to New York for our Silver Wedding Anniversary, and chose the Giraffe because we did not want to stay in a "run of the mill hotel". Did we select right.... You bet yah. The Giraffe is perfectly located in midtown, with short distances to any spot in Manhattan. The rooms are great, and the whole atmosphere is relaxed, stylish and friendly. We enjoyed the Giraffe for: * The nice breakfast * The great rooms *The comfortable bed * Cheese & wine every evening from 5 - 8, fab after a long day shopping/seeing the sights. *The helpful and friendly staff. I paid extra for a "romantic rendevouz" and had "rose petal turndown & chocolate hand dipped strawberries & A Bottle of Champagne" in the room when we arrived after a long flight - fantastic. There is no need to look any further for a romantic get-away from home - I would be happy to come back to the Giraffe.

The Hotel Giraffe was a very good find. The setting is great and both their complimentary breakfast and wine and cheese are excellent. The piano bar has a good atmosphere. It is an excellent value for the price with very little, if any compromise.

Firstly I liked the style of the hotel and its location. Very handy for walking to Macy's, Empire State etc with a good subway line only two blocks away for trips downtown or uptown. The rooms were very large, clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast was ample but difficult to find a table in the morning, there just wasn't enough room for a hotel full of guests! No noise from other guests at night but plenty of noise from outside;bring earplugs! I felt that although free tea etc was offered all day in the lobby, some of us would really like to grab a hot drink whilst lounging around in our pjs - so a kettle in the room would be good. Next point, for that price I expect good pillows, not the flat things you might have at home. So guys you might want to invest a bit more there. Also what's the point of having a really nice roof terrace if it's full of non guests, mainly young noisy yuppie types and no seats available for paying guests to enjoy a pleasant evening drink? We had to make do with sitting in the lobby, trying to pluck up courage to approach the glowering, scary barman. A smile and a pleasant word with your prosecco makes for a happier guest. So great location, big spacious rooms - good. But not quite up to the level it thinks it is.

Excellent value for money and excellent service from all staff. Nice location accessible to the sights and features of New York but not so close to downtown to be noisy. Highly recommend the Giraffe and will definitely stay there again and recommend it to family and friends.

Celebrated Anniversary-very warm welcome. Pretty and attractive room, nice little balcony, nice bath. Managment left a bottle of prosecco and chocolates with Anniversary wishes-very nice touch. Great lobby, 24 hour coffee, juices, ice water, cookies. Wonderful wine and cheese in evening and continental breakfast. All inclusive with price. Would stay again in a heartbeat as long as prices remain affordable.

I thought the hotel was well priced for the location and the quality of the hotel. It felt comfortable, welcoming with good service. It was nice to stay in a smaller more personal hotel rather than the larger chain hotels. I would recommend this hotel as a good quality place to book. A couple of great restaurants a stone's throw away, try the Blue Smoke or the mexican basically next door, great food and atmosphere.

We really enjoyed our stay at the giraffe. We were there the weekend before christmas, and its central location was perfect for us. The happy hour wine/cheese tastings were a great bonus. And our room, while not extremely spacious, was very comfortable and had enough room for our bags and for us to move about freely. I'd definitely stay at the Giraffe again!
