5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

In a busy diverse and exiting city, the hotel giraffe offers comfortable unpretentious surroundings coupled with seamless customer service. We had a room on the 12th floor with a balcony that had views of park avenue and Madison park, clicking the switch for the automatic blind revealed classic NYC views. The room had everything you would need and was serviced... More

To my surprise, I was greeted by name.The service is great; there is a real and genuine feeling here that I am welcome. I could not imagine staying anywhere else while in New York. Gabriela is truly an exceptional staff member.

Very comfortable and great service. In NY it's so nice to have a hotel provide breakfast that you can just grab and go before you start your day. Our room wasn't quite ready at the time promised, so they gave us a bottle of wine. Nice way to start our visit. Was just a bit loud on the 4th Floor.

The standard queen room was very spacious for NYC. We had a balcony that let in fresh air and we could stand out on it for a view of the area. The location for us was exactly what we needed as we were visiting our son who lives in the East Village. We were able to walk to everywhere and... More

The Giraffe hotel is a real gem. Everything you read in the reviews is true. The rooms are spacious (for NYC) and very nicely appointed. The bed is one of the most comfortable we have slept in. A/C is perfect and easy to control. Pressure and water temperature great. Big nice TV with a large selection of channels (but did... More

We stayed here for a weekend getaway with the girls. The staff was very helpful from the time we checked in until the time we left with restaurant recommendations and getting us taxis to our destinations. The rooms were very clean and we did not hear the NYC traffic at any time. Highly recommend this hotel for any NYC trip!

LOVED IT... start to finish, we all loved our 3 night stay here. We had a suite on the 12th floor, which worried us at first, as the roof top bar is the same floor. But that closes at 9pm so the worry soon passed. The room was huge ( 1201 ), living room, bathroom and very large bedroom. The... More

I really can't write enough superlatives. Unless you are uber fussy royalty this hotel should more than meet your expectations. Fabulous staff, spotless rooms, great location, free and excellent breakfast, free cheese and wine in the evenings. Zero negatives. Great well run place.

Stayed here in July 2015 - a quadruple balcony room was big enough for the four of us including two teenagers. Positives included helpful staff, clean and modern room, quiet air-conditioning, free wifi, bonus cheese and wine reception each evening. We found the location to be great - you can walk to large parts of Manhattan and there are lots... More

Just spent three nights in the Hotel Giraffe in New York City. Very modern, great staff and best of all very quiet which is unusual for NYC in my experience. Good location close to the subway and most major sites.
