I was a bit disappointed in the hotel as it was rated so high on tripadvisor. The intial welcome by the hotel staff was wooden...it was like she was reading a text. The walls are paper thin...I could hear someone taking a shower in the room above. You can hear the garbage collection early in the morning (outside on the...

Dear GoldenGirls930. Thank you so much for sharing your feedback with us. Although, we are very happy to hear you enjoyed our wine & cheese reception in the evening, we are sorry to see you did not feel you were as enthusiastically welcomed as all of our guests absolutely should be.

We loved the Hotel Giraffe! Staying in the family suite was perfect for our family of five. We loved the daily wine and cheese as well as how helpful and accommodating the staff was. We will definitely return for another stay!

We booked here for my 30th celebration trip to New York. My parents had visited NYC before but still weren't sure where the best location would be to base ourselves. I'm forever grateful that we stumbled upon the Hotel Giraffe on our search. The location is perfect for walking north or south, within 2 blocks of the subway stop that...

Room was large (NYC standards) clean with no signs of wear and tear. Subway is right on corner which was perfect. Staff was friendly not pretentious. Room was well insulated from street...

Fabulous stay at Hotel Giraffe. Impeccable service and attention to detail. Thank you for making our visit and our guests feel so comfortable. You did manage the personal service very well. Piano sessions were delightful and supported by cheese and wine. Worth planning your day around. Look forward to a return trip.

I chose the Hotel Giraffe during my recent stay in NYC to celebrate my daughter's 13th birthday. The staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating and our rooms exceeded our expectations. Sipping a cappuccino on the rooftop garden was a welcome momentary escape while the group of tweens I was with enjoyed the delicious breakfast in the lobby. I recommend this...

Excellent room, big, clean and very comfortable. Small balcony so you can open up the room for some air and hear the sounds of the city. Amazing team who looked after our every need. Great location, right next to Madison Square which is perfect for kicking back and having a coffee or shake. The attached Italian restaurant is perfect for...

Lovely boutique hotel. Very nice continental-plus breakfast and nice afternoon reception as well. Nice turndown service. Staff terrific. Only downside is slowness of the elevators and bathroom countertops are old-style low rather than modern high.

“Highly recommend opting for a King Suite/Balcony room. For the money it is EXCEPTIONAL. If you are vacationing in NYC you will relish in the extra comfy space their King Balcony Suite offers. For NYC it is SPACIOUS. The sitting area is the perfect place to escape for a glass of wine after a long day of sight seeing, shopping or museum trekking.”
