We recently stayed two nights at the Giraffe -- our first stay, although like other reviewers, we have stayed at their chain's other property, the Hotel Elysee, as well. The Giraffe is in a great part of town, with easy access to restaurants and shopping. Noise was not a problem at all. We started out on the 11th floor with a queen size bed and decided we preferred a king. One call to the front desk and they made arrangements for us to move, no problem. They even transferred our luggage while we were out. We ended up on the 8th floor, and again no noise issue. As compared to the Elysee, the Giraffe is decorated in a more modern style and the bathrooms are larger, which was great. We did not take advantage of the breakfast and unfortunately missed the evening reception, but enjoyed some late night drinks (our own wine) on the roof patio. Very nice way to end the evening! It did not matter to us, but some travelers might need to be aware before booking that the hotel does not have a pool or gym, although passes to a nearby gym are available.
