“Cute Homey Decor, Otherwise Average Room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

I had heard great things about this hotel, but, I found it to be a little better than average. The staff was great---when I checked in late, the young lady at the front desk asked if I was jennifer (guess I was the last to check in that night!)---so that was nice. But the room itself, while homey, was just okay. The hot water took 10 minutes to work at 615 am, the wifi was free, but no free am coffee that I saw. Front desk person in the AM was really nice, too. I don't know, just kind of unremarkable; I don't know that I would rush back.

Stayed at the Carvi for 3 nights. Had excellent rates for NYC, and it was walking distance to most attractions (Bloomingdales, Saks, Central Park, Rockefeller Centre..)
The rooms were clean, and a good size for New York. Very nice bathroom.
The only problem encountered was the AC/Heating. In the afternoon, the heat would blast super hot, then at night, the AC would come on blowing very cold air, with a weird smell.
The rooftop was very beautiful, went outside even in the cold March air.
Overall, great value for your money.

Staying for the first time I was very pleased with the cleanliness of the room, for this price rooms will be compact but comfortable. Room facing away from street had no noise whatsoever. My only caveat was the room service dinner, food was mediocre. Definately try a local restaurant.

My sister and I stayed here in July 12, very impressed with the location and the cleanliness of this small boutique hotel. Staff was very professional and helpful for getting us where we needed to go. My sister injured herself our first day there, so we didn't get to have the experience we were hoping for, she ended up staying in the hotel most of the trip because she could not walk. The comfy beds and the staff helping us get ice for her injury made it a little more bearable, i don't know if we will every have the opportunity to make another trip to New York, but if we do, we would love to stay at the Carvi Hotel.Thank you

This is a very small boutique hotel which is reasonably priced, and with on-street parking overnight which saved us the cost of a garage. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Also free internet always adds to the value of the room. The hotel is within walking distance to many sightseeing areas. On the down-side, the rooms were very small. We kept our drapes closed the whole time as our "view" was of an office about 30 feet away. There is an Asian restaurant a few doors away and we could smell Asian food in our room all the time. The positives outweigh the negatives if you are just looking for a place to sleep.

Room Tip: The rooms away from the front may be noisier, but al least they must have a better view!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel 1/18 - 1/21 and we were very pleased with the hotel and it's decor and the soft robes that were complimentary. Although the room was very small and the shower can barely accommodate one person, it was still very modern. Our room #504 (very quiet) had no windows/views which was a plus as it allowed us to enjoy tranquil peacefulness after long hours of walking the streets of Manhattan. The bed was firm and comfortable.

No real complaints that is worth mentioning.

We really enjoyed our stay and the staff is courteous and helpful.

Room Tip: #504 is very quiet (no views).

Great location. Great hotel with excellent service. Desk staff was very kind and accomodating. The room was very clean and comfortable. There was some minor damage on the bathroom wall where it appeared a towel rack had been moved, but overall it was a great experience. Next time I'm in the city, I will definitely make plans to stay there.
