Have to admit that I did not expect a quiet room on the 2nd floor of this hotel.. The room was facing an office where people started work at 6:30 am, but I didn't expect a view at all. The staff was helpful and able to accommodate my request for an early check in by noon. The room was fine.... More

Just stayed here one night and it served its purpose by the location. It is very small, but nice. Didn't interact with staff too much. For the most part they seemed okay. There's a rooftop space, but that's the only real amenity besides a computer in the lobby. They gave us a list of good dinner recommendations and the room... More

The hotel is in a quieter area of Midtown, but is so close to many attractions like Central Park, Times Square and Fifth Avenue. Lots of eateries around, enjoyed the Pig and Whistle Irish Pub about a 3 minute walk from the Hotel. On arrival we were allocated room 506, which was spacious but was next to a big generator...

Stayed in this hotel over the Easter holidays (3rd - 8th April) and was very pleased with everything about my stay. Staff at reception were very courteous and friendly and were more than helpful to recommend restaurants and give us directions as it was our first stay in New York. The rooms were spacious and exceptionally clean. We also made... More

We stayed here for 9 nights in April and found the hotel to be faultless in its level of friendliness, cleanliness and location. Some might think rooms are small but we think they were great value. All staff at the front desk were very helpful and gave great advice for local restaurants etc. However,, if looking for something quick to... More

Staff is a extremely hospitable and very kind! The room was clean, a little small but perfect for my stay. The hotel is within walking distance of Centrel Park and the Empire State Building. I highly recommend this place to anyone!

Dear Alyssaflores, Thank you for the lovely review! We're glad to hear that we were able to perfectly accommodate you for your trip to New York. We are indeed moving our restaurant! After almost 30 years at 13 West 46th St., Ipanema will be moving a few buildings down to 43 West 46th! Hope to see you there, Victor More

We stayed at the Carvi for four nights over Easter 2015. The lobby area is small, as are the rooms, but the hotel is clean and convenient. The staff are polite, friendly and very helpful. There's a subway station just around the corner, on the E line from Jamaica Station if you're coming in from JFK. The location is between... More

Never saw the corridors of a hotel so narrow; stayed on the 2nd floor with no view at all. It is nice for a quick stay 1 or 2 nights if you want to be close to 5th avenue (uptown) and go to Moma for instance.

Dear George N, Thank you for taking a minute to leave us a review! We do apologize if the hallways are a bit narrow compared to other hotels you have seen; space in NY is hard to come by! Hope to see you again soon, Victor More

Stayed at the carvi hotel for 6 nights. Great location! Centrally located in midtown. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. There is no breakfast available at the hotel but there's a Starbucks right outside the hotel so it was very convenient. I would definitely stay there again.

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.
