“Tiny but nice rooms”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

Carvi Hotel is located close to the subway station and many of New York's best attractions like the Empire State Building, Times Square, 5th Avenue and Rockefeller Center are just minutes away.

The hotel room is really small with a tiny wardrobe and hardly any space to put our few luggage bags. However, the place looks fairly new and the bed is comfortable and since we hardly spent any time in the rooms besides sleeping, the small size didn't really matter but the comfortable bed did. The free Wi-Fi is a big plus for me.

As for minus points, we had a room on the mezzanine floor which in actual fact is just half a floor above the reception area and the sound proofing was not that good so when there were people talking in the reception area, it can be heard from the room.

Room Tip: Stay away from the mezzanine floor room if possible

I stayed 3 nights with 2 girlfriends in a room with 2 full sized beds. It's not a big room (but from what I have read in other New York hotel reviews that's the standard in NYC - unless you are willing to pay double or more than the Carvi) but we were out most of the day and evenings and only used the room to sleep and showers, so it was okay. Be aware that each bed only have one cover, but housekeeping brought us an extra blanket so we didn't have to share covers. The room was cleaned every day and in good conditions. I especially liked the built in room for suitcases under the beds, otherwise the room would have been very crowded with 3 girlie suitcases ;) The bathroom had just enough space for each of our toiletries, but one more hanger on the door would be nice. The robes and thick white towels were a very pleasant treat and so is the free wi-fi.
We enjoyed a nice breakfast every morning at the wonderful diner with the sweetest waitress just across the street, where you get a Carvi discount (ask for coupon in reception).

Looking forward to returning to the Carvi next weekend, but are happy it's just the 2 of us this time - because the beds are a little narrow when it's not your sweetheart you're sharing the bed with :)

We never used the free in-room coffee maker, so can't comment on that - but it's there :)

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.
