Great little place in Midtown Manhattan I do no think many people know about. Centrally located to all the things you want to see and do. A couple of blocks away from the 6 Lexington Ave line that will pretty much get you to where you want to go. The hotel itself was small (6 floors) and quaint but very... More

Small, friendly, clean hotel in good location. A good value for the location. Room was well appointed, a bit small, but quite fine. Staff was very friendly. Has a rooftop sitting area, nice but not much of a view. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.

Thanks to TripAdvisor for this recommendation. We arrived and had booked the 2 double bed room. It was perfect for my daughter and i. Great location as we were within 10 minutes of 3 subway lines. Only challenge with the room was the shower. Not sure how my daughter ended up flooding the bathroom every time when i didnt when... More

First time staying in a hotel in nyc. The Carvi hotel was amazing! It is very clean. The staff was so helpful and had a great attitude. The balcony was so beautiful. We will definitely be staying here again. It was close to Central Park and Times Square. A hidden gem!

Arrived in June with my daughter for a five night stay! Took around an hour to get to the hotel from JFK using Airtrain and Metro so really easy to locate. Room was amazing!

We stayed at the Carvi Hotel for 5 days at the end of June and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. It is in a great location close to Central Park, Grand Central Station and the Rockerfeller Centre, there are also 2 subway stations about 5 mins walk away. The reception staff were always friendly and helpful. It's a small... More

Having researched intensively the vast number of hotels available in NYC, I opted for the Carvi based on location and cost. To summarise the hotel was excellent with the staff going beyond what was required to ensure our stay was memorable. At check in we were greeted by Lucie who was extremely friendly and took the time to explain thoroughly... More

I'm actually afraid to rate this hotel because it's such a hidden gem, I wouldn't want to get shut out in the future because it gets too popular!

The Carvi is a boutique hotel located in Midtown East, NYC. The staff were very professional and courteous, and the room was comfortable and very clean each day. Of particular note is the 7th-floor outdoor lounge area, a feature not often seen in NYC hotels. The lack of unnecessary and pricey amenities makes the Carvi a cost-effective pleasure to stay...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood 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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
