“Nice hotel - very expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Very nice hotel quite central NYC. Rooms are a good size and the bathrooms were especially good. Very good point of putting bottles of water in the room. Free breakfast was excellent.
Only downside was the cost. That's NYC I guess.

I was here for a long weekend and I loved everything about the hotel. The breakfast was great, really good fresh bagels and pastries with fresh fruit and delicious coffee, the room was lovely, the staff friendly and helpful,and the midtown location was just perfect. The Flatiron building and the pretty Madison Square Park are literally just round the corner.

It is a little noisy because it's in central New York, but the double glazing is superb and I didn't have any problems sleeping (beyond my jet lag!) with ear plugs in. I was on the 8th floor on the 26th Street side.

My friends and I were lucky enough to spend the night at this fabulous hotel! It is conveniently located near some of New York's famous landmarks. There was also some wonderful restaurants close by. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I was very impressed with how clean and well maintained the property was. The hotel has a great continental breakfast as well as wine and cheese in the late afternoon. I would definitely recommend this hotel and can't wait to visit it again!

From the moment we stepped on the sidewalk it was amazing. The staff was very professional, friendly and so helpful. From parking our car, to bring up our luggage and also bringing us ice, all so helpful. I was so comfortable and made to relax immediately. The décor in the lobby was outstanding, clean and beautifully decorated with fresh flowers all over. The room we had was large and nicely decorated, not to bright but not your dark hotel room. It was beyond clean and smelled fresh. The complimentary water was a nice touch. We dropped our stuff off and went sight seeing. We returned in time to catch the ending of the wine & cheese in the lobby, with music playing and all. What a nice touch and so inviting. Upon entering our room, beds were turned, chocolate on the dresser with a bottle of water and light music playing in the room WOW that was a great touch. Check out was a breeze, thank you Assim what a pleasure it was to stay and I look forward to my next trip to Manhattan to stay again.

My fiancee and I had a short stay in NYC but were very impressed with all aspects of Hotel Giraffe. After an exhausting, delay-filled red eye trip across the US, we were delighted to be greeted by the hotel's friendly staff and a formidable spread of complimentary wine, cheese and crackers in the lobby. The concierge even suggested that we take a few glasses of wine to our room while we got settled. Our server suggested a great Italian restaurant about a block away for dinner. We also thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary continental breakfast the next morning which fueled us for a long day of sightseeing and walking. The room (a balcony suite) was clean and comfortable and had a nice view of Park Ave. Highest recommendation.

Room Tip: Balcony suites are worth the upgrade.

We arrived after 4 tiring 4 hr drive through traffic and simply dropped our car out up front and our luggage was whisked away. Our 6th floor room was directly across from the elevator but we never heard a sound. On arrival we were directly to a generous wine and cheese reception in the lobby complete with comfy chairs and lovely unobtrusive live piano music. What respite from our drive! In the morning the area had a delicious continental breakfast - yum those pastries. Throughout the day there was fruit available, cookies and a self-serve coffee machine. The room was fine as was the bathroom. The price was high. But the ambiance, location and most of all hospitality from the moment we walked in just made it worth it.
