Stayed at the Giraffe Dec 4th to 7th to celebrate my 40th birthday. We arrived there after a long trip and they were friendly and welcoming. Got to the room and it was a decent size with a balcony. The free bottle of wine added to the charm along with a birthday greeting which I had not expected.
There is a Cheese and wine reception every night except Sunday, which lets you relax before a night out and gets you in the mood. Red, white and sparkling wine on offer.
Breakfast was included in the price and is on a buffett format with a selection of cereals, croissants and bagels. It can get crowded around 8-9 but if your on holiday sleep in!
Location wise it is good. Its 2 blocks from the metro and in two stops you can be in Soho or the other side of Grand central and the touristy bits. We walked as its New York but manage to explore many sites and shopping areas within minutes.
My only compliant was we only had 4 days!
The concierge Oleg and the front desk staff looked after us, and on departure when super shuttle turned up too early and missed us they sorted them out and got them to come back and informed us.
If your looking for a big swanky/generic hotel experience then this is'nt it, but if your looking for a great value, more friendly atmosphere with great service experience, this is definately the place.
