We stayed at the Hotel Giraffe on the recommendation of some friends and we were not disappointed. The hotel is ideally located and from the moment we arrived we were treated like welcomed guests. The staff were all friendly, helpful and polite. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was divine! We stayed in a junior suite and really... More

We stayed at this fantastic hotel at the end of May for 6 nights. We booked the hotel after reading the reviews and were delighted. We had complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival as we were early. Tea etc available free all day. The breakfast was fresh and I enjoyed the fresh fruit salad. The hotel even had gluten...

We stayed here for 8 nights and had a fantastic family holiday visiting New York. The location meant walking was always an option but the metro card was easy to use too. The use of the 'lobby' for breakfast, all day tea, coffee, biscuits and the cheese and wine in the evening - all included was a great extra and... More

The staff here made me feel welcome. The room was impeccably clean. The breakfast was just what we needed to start our day, and they knew what my husband wanted and brought it to our table on the second day. I wouldn't stay anywhere else--I feel like a valued customer.

So happy we found Hotel Giraffe. Staff is friendly and attentive without being invasive. Room was very clean and compact with plenty of storage and counter areas. Small balcony with geraniums was lovely. Air conditioning was cool and refreshing. Virtually no noise from building or outside traffic. Breakfast offered quality breads, fruit, yogurt etc Nightly wine and cheese was generous... More

I have stayed over 200 nights in NYC hotels the past 15 years and this was my first stay at Hotel Giraffe. Overall experience would be in the top of any stay. Warm and professional greeting and attire from the bell and front desk, an unsolicited bottle of wine was delivered right after checking in by a nice young lady... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights here recently and had a lovely stay. The staff go out of their way to be helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The buffet breakfast in the lobby is really good with cereals, juices, yoghurts, cakes and more and a real espresso machine also and the happy hour every evening is great.... More

I have been an active traveler for a few decades. I have never written a travel review. Mostly because I have not been moved to words for long enough to still want to write about it when I get home. The Hotel Giraffe changed this for me this week. I was in New York on a business trip with some... More

From check-in to departure, very good service and accommodations for a 4 night stay. Staff at all levels was friendly and attentive. Perfect location - walking distance to Union Square or a very close 6 train that accesses all subway lines. Neighborhood is perfect just for wandering; close to Gramercy, Madison Square Park, Union Square, Herald Square, Bryant Park -... More
