This was our first trip to New York and we found this hotel in its midtown location very convenient to all the main attractions. The rooms are well equipped with extremely comfortable beds and good showers. There are also electrical and charging facilities. But it was the staff that were really good. There were a couple of problems, not caused by the hotel, such as noisy neighbours and an air conditioning failure (in stifling July, and these were handled really well and elegantly by Marcos. For the noise he changed our room and when the aircon failed even let us sleep in another room for the night, where the aircon was still working. Whilst this hotel has no bar or public lounge, there is a really nice roof terrace to relax on. If you are wanting to be close to pretty much everything in Manhatten at a budget price it’s hard to go past Carvi.

Dear Wendy B, We appreciate you taking some time to leave us a comment and for your understanding. Air conditioning difficulties are rare and unexpected but we are glad to hear that Marcos was able to provide alternative and comfortable accommodations for you. We hope you enjoyed your first trip to New York and hope it will be one of many to come. Best wishes,

I was overall very pleased with my stay at Carvi. Room was beautiful. Decent size. And very convenient location. I will definitely consider booking again in the future. Only downside is that I wanted room service when I got back late since I was hungry and the person working at the reception area misinformed me stating that they were closed already. But the book in the hotel room clearly said 24 hours.

Dear DaintyGemini, We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your first (of many we hope) stay in NYC and look forward to future bookings. We apologize for the misinformation but our front desk agent was correct. As we don't have a restaurant in the hotel, the room service is provided by the restaurant across the street which used to be opened 24H. They have changed their opening hours and we must update our room directory. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. Kind Regards,

Friendly hotel staff, small rooms but clean. Great location for walking around East side, Grand Central, Lex Ave Subway, etc. No restaurant, but access to a rooftop terrace. Close to tons of restaurants and convenient coffee shops for breakfast.

My family and i stayed in Carvi Hotel for a total of 3 nights. We had gotten a room directly behind and above the hotel reception. Hence, no elevator will reach that level and we will have to carry our luggage up a flight of stairs. We were given 2 queen sized bed for 4 pax. The room was rather small for 4 people and our window was facing the narrow back alley. Since our room was so close to the reception, it can be quite noisy. We can often hear the banging of doors from closing and people chattering away. Neverthless, the room was clean and tidy. Toilet was also clean and very functional. Location of the hotel is also rather ideal. It's about a 15mins walk to the Grand Central Terminal and a short 3 mins walk to the nearest metro. There are also plenty of food choices around the vicinity.

Dear Jisushika1126, Thank you for taking some time to write us a review. We appreciate you and your family choosing to stay with us during your visit to NYC. The city can be a bit overwhelming at times which is one reason guests love to stay with us, as being a smaller hotel and centrally located makes everything accessible and easy. We apologize for the inconvenience of the noise, although the room is behind the lobby, we seldom get feedback of noise since installing glass barriers. We will keep this in mind and look to minimize any additional sounds. We do hope you had a wonderful visit and when you return to NYC we hope you return to the Carvi Hotel and request a room on a higher floor. Best wishes,

Excellent option. Very well located, with several metro stations under 5 minutes walking services nearby, such as wholefoods and pharmacies. Perfect stay in New York. Excellent relation price-quality. The room was surprisingly big, especially for a hotel in NY. The staff was super professional and friendly, bilingual (speaking Portuguese). We booked through an online platform but if you can call directly the hotel you would get better prices. I would definitely stay back here when returning to NY.
