After researching thru Trip Advisor we chose the Hotel Giraffe and were not disappointed. It is a boutique hotel with a... More

Stayed here during "hotel week" in early January, and consider this hotel in the City. The service was outstanding and staff went out of their way to be helpful, plus there was an afternoon wine and cheese party for guests, great!

The location is not necessarily central, and... More

The young staff seemed actually happy to have us; they thought of ways to make every request happen. High ceilings and a wall of window with a Juliette balcony make the room spacious. Closet doors have substantial weight and mirrors front and back; easy to check appearances. Robes and slippers are provided; very relaxing. The bathroom counter is easily six... More
