“I'll Take Manhattan...”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

A Valetine's getaway to The Big Apple found us lodged in the Upper East Side Carvi Hotel. Easy to miss as the entrance looks like an office building and the rooms are incredibly small. BUT, with hotel rooms in NYC rented by the square inch, this place is a very good value. Roses on the bed, very clean, European looking, and of course very romantic. There's a good restaurant across the street for breakfast. Easy walking distance to Park Avenue, Central Park, etc. Parking is challenging and I recommend travel by train or taxi.

I travel to NY frequently, in terms of location, convenience, price and room layout it works perfectly for me. Staff very friendly, hotel very clean, rooms compact by NY standards but they have everything you would need.

I stayed at Carvi Hotel for a week with my wife and teenage daughter. It was absolutely great. Nice atmosphere, friendly and helpfull staff. While somewhat small the rooms are well above NY stadard; very clean and the size of the rooms is no issue. Also a very nice and quiet street winthin walking distance of anything in midtown.
Be aware of pricing. We found very good last minute deals on hotels.com.

We stayed at the Carvi NYC in mid January. It is a very small hotel and the rooms are small, but as long as you and your travel partner get along well, it's no problem at all! The room felt like a very cozy bedroom. Before going I read reviews about the small shower being an issue - it is small, but honestly just fine! My husband is 6'3" and was fine. The water is nice and hot and the water pressure is great!! Since it is a small hotel, there is no restaurant or even vending machines (which we knew before traveling so no surprise). However, one night we brought a bottle of wine back to the room and requested a bucket of ice and an opener. It was no problem at all and they even sent up wine glasses!

The ONLY con is that it is in a quieter area (which at times is also a plus) but there is not much around that is open late.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing 55th street. The rooms in the back face a brick wall and people working VERY...
