What a wonderful find - it was our first trip to NYC and what a great impression the staff made - polite, helpful and attentive, but not overly pushy or in your face, which we liked.. All the staff were friendly and helpful - booked restaurants and helped us with the subway and gave great advice. The breakfast and wine... More

My wife and I came to NY from San Francisco to celebrate our anniversary. The facilities were very nice, but the staff was less than enthusiastic... Although they knew we were visiting from out of town and we were a bit tired upon check-in, not a word about the neighborhood or where we might get dinner in the area. No... More

I recently spent one night at the Hotel Giraffe on very short notice. I chose it due to the location (and because of the funky name), and left the next day a huge fan. Making the online reservation the day of arrival worked incredibly well (not always the case, since some reservation systems block you, or make it impossible to... More

Our daughter is a big fan of giraffes so once we'd found this hotel when looking for somewhere to stay in New York then there was probably no other alternative. Hotel Giraffe lived up to our expectations though and our daughter was excited & delighted. From the decor to the facilities to the giraffe statue on the roof terrace everything... More

This was the second time we stayed at the Giraffe. We returned because what I felt the first time was that this was a hotel with personel that were honest and helpful, rightly proud of the work they did, and simply service minded and in a friendly way always wanted to make sure the guest was happy. Our feelings are... More

We stayed for 3 nights in April 2014 - 2 adults 2 children. The room was spotless, big enough (you shouldn't be spending too long in your room in NYC!!). Great location for exploring both uptown and downtown, and a quieter area so it's good to get away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square etc. The evening wine... More

Great hotel with most helpful & welcoming staff.Very comfortable &quiet(by New York standards!) bedrooms. Breakfasts are good & afternoon wine & canapés most enjoyable. Hotel is well placed for metro mid & downtown.a large number of varied eating houses close by,would recommend a visit to Eataly the other side of Madison Square on 5th Avenue.
