When looking up places to stay in New York, it was hard to find a place that was a) decently reviewed on TripAdvisor and b) had no history of bed bugs. Carvi Hotel was one of two hotels I found with good reviews, zero history of bed bugs and in my price range. It was a good find. The rooms are good for the price, it's located in a pretty central spot (nearby places worth checking out include MoMa and Momofuku Milk Bar's mid-town outlet) and it has what you need if you're after a nice, unfussy place to crash while in NY. The Wi-Fi is good, too.
One slight warning though – we asked for a cab to take us the airport, and the reception booked us a hirecar instead. We didn't think there'd be a big difference, but there was – a $90 ride to JFK versus a $60 cab fare. So, if you are thinking of asking reception to book a cab to the airport, just clarify that they are booking you an actual taxi cab, and not a hirecar. It will definitely save you some souvenir-buying money.
