“Nice little boutuque hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Nothing superb, but a smallish clean room, comfortable bed, hot shower, free wi fi, and nice tv. Good location in midtown east, extremely adequate for a business person or couple. Not enough room for a family and no restaurant or fitness facilities, but a wise economical choice for me.

Room Tip: Ask for a room up and in the back away from the street.

An excellent price for the location within easy walking distance if time sq and central park and two main subway stations.

Hotel was nice enough but like said in an earlier review basic rather than boutique. Good for what we needed but I did expect a bit more luxury from what we'd seen on the website. I was very impressed with the bathroom facilities, shower was amazing!

Lots of reviews say rooms were too small but I felt they were quite reasonable for two people.

Staff were helpful and friendly. Hotel can arrange a car to airport for a few dollars more than a taxi which I'd handy if you have a really early flight!

Plenty of restaurants, coffee shops and salads near by. Chinese opposite was very nice but also very expensive.

I would use the hotel again due to its fantastic location.

The staff were nice enough. Sometimes helpful! We arrived past midnight and were welcomed to our tiny room for 3 with a surprise poop in the toilet. Thank you for flushing! Location was perfectly fine. Close to Central Park, Time Square and metro stops close by. I wont bother going back.

Nice little hotel in a great section of Manhattan.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating.
The rooms are small but very clean and the bed is very comfortable.
There is free Wi-fi and a nice little roof top terrace.
I will definitely stay at the Carvi again.

Everyone working the front desk was very friendly and helpful. We arrived exhausted from a red eye, and asked for an early check-in. The lady at the front desk was very accommodating. The room wasn't ready right at that moment, but she told us to come back in a couple of hours. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The Carvi is located in a great neighborhood, with lots of sights and restaurants within walking distance. Overall, a great experience.

We stayed one night in the Carvi on our way through New York and a very pleasant stay it was too. The staff were very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, and it had free wifi - can't ask for much more, really. The location is handy too - and P.J. Clarke's is just down the block if you fancy a good bite to eat!

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor next to the open roof patio. It was cold so no one was using it but if yo...

We stayed at Hotel Carvi for 2 nights. The staff were welcoming and considerate. The rooms were clean and the beds extremely comfortable. The location, between Lexington and Third Venue was a great base from which to walk to see the highlights of New York. We would not hesitate to stay again if we were to return to New York. With the pound being so weak against the dollar currently,Hotel Carvi represented great value for a short stay in NYC.

Room Tip: Rooms a little on the small side but very comfortable. Room 603 very quiet.
