Stayed over the 4th of July weekend and found the room to be very clean, above average in size for a NYC hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the neighborhood was clean and a lot of eating and bar establishments.

Room was slightly small but nice and very clean, free wifi, very good location, helpful staff. We checked in late due to a delayed flight so didn't get to utilise the hotel as much as we would of liked. But 24hr reception was helpful as the staff member could tell us where was open for food at that hour.

I'd mention convenient location in the heart (or one of the hearts) of Manhattan first. I was also pleasantly surprised to find how spacious the room was. Everything was updated and spick and span--really pleasant interior! The bed felt perfect, and I really like the arrangement of pillows of different firmness and thickness -- how thoughtful! It was also very... More

Charming European style hotel. Rooms are small and a little dark. We really enjoyed the roof patio for drinks before theater or just hanging out. Very good location close to Central Park and subway. The price was reasonable for midtown New York.

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.

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!

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.
