Our first room was too small and the decor was too dark, we had to move as I felt claustrophobic, second room a lot better but decor definitely needs brightening up,it would make the rooms feel more spacious, facilities not great, but location excellent. Need a better restaurant and the price for breakfast are a bit high. On the whole...

Comfortable room, clean and would highly recommend. We forgot iPad and realized it once back home. Located it through Findmyphone and made it ring many times but evening staff was not very helpful, neither was breakfast room manager but hotel manager Yannek took the time and looked for it and found it. She messaged me and was amazing! So grateful...

From the curb the bellmen met me and grab my bags to take them upstairs which is always great to checkin and be bag free especially if you pack like me!

The hotel serves a purpose for the price. The location is great - very near to Time Square and Hells Kitchen which we loved. We seem to have gotten 'lucky' with our room size as the room itself was absolutely fine in size, although the bathroom was very small so it's one in one out. We did have a problem...

We stayed at The Gallivant for 7 days last week during our magical trip to New York City. We paid a little less on Booking.com with the exception of paying before we got there and having no option of cancellation so all together the hotel cost us around £1,100 with tax which is extremely reasonable for New York.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
