The first thing we noticed when we arrived at the hotel was the knidness of the staff,always ready to help you. The room was clean and comfortable. At the end of the day we were cheered by classical music and chocolate in the hotel room :one of the things we liked best together with cheese and wine served during the... More

When we checked in to fly to NYC the airport was not Newark as our travel agent had posted, but rather JFK, so a quick email... More

Don´t even question it, I have stayed all over the city over the past 10 years and you can´t beat the Giraffe for location/price and superior service, I don´t know how they do it, but they really surpassed all my expectations! i´ll be back in September!

The breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese are great touches for this excellent hotel. If you like the hustle and bustle of a large hotel, this is not the place for you. . . but if you like a very... More

My husband and i recently stayed at the Hotel Giraffe for 10 nights. The hotel is quite modern in style and is exceptionally clean and tidy. The breakfasts are great with plenty of choice and items that they run out of are continually replenished. The staff are all happy to help in any way and nothing is a bother to... More

This was our first stay at Hotel Giraffe and we are counting down the days to returning. The staff was friendly and accommodating.The complementary breakfast, wine and cheese reception was excellent. Every morning we would start our day with the complementary breakfast and head out to sight see. The location was perfect: very close to Madison Square and subway lines.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Giraffe, a contemporary boutique hotel. We found the staff to be personable and helpful - particularly JR at the Reception Desk and Gabriella who served us morning coffee and wine and cheese in the evening. The Hotel is clean and quiet. The complementary breakfast and wine and cheese reception was appreciated. The hotel... More

In the reception lounge you could slways get complimentary tea and coffee and there was wifi available throughout the building. There is a small cocktail bar on... More
