“perfect location. good hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

The hotel is beutiful. It is clean (even though the toilett was used when we arrived and did not apologyze) The service are helpful. The room size was great for two.
Most of the importance of this hotel is its location: is near museums, churches, subways, and different malls.

Dear narine1985,

Thank you for leaving us a review of your stay! I am glad to hear that we were clean and located well to suit your needs while you were in New York! I do sincerely apologize for the cold welcome, we certainly don't hear something like this too often as you already know, we take cleanliness very seriously.

Hope you had a safe trip home!

Best,
Victor

Room window is at the bottom of a long air shaft and provides very little light. To add insult to injury, hotel provides minimal lamps in the room. So bring a reading light. Also, only a small desk chair for reading. Not great for reading over a long period of time.

On the plus side, very quiet room, nice furniture and bathroom, and great roof-top deck.

Room Tip: Get on high floor so you get adequate lighting.

Dear Michael S,

Thank you for taking a minute out of your day to leave us some comments regarding your stay. Although there were some positives to your stay, I would like to apologize for the poor lighting in your room. We are undergoing a continuous revamp of our rooms and lighting happened to fall during your stay. I assure you new lamps are now arriving and being put into rooms in order to avoid this problem in the future.

Again, sorry for the inconvenience and hopefully we see you again!

Best,
Victor

I've passed the building that houses the Carvi hotel many times and never noticed it. Why? Most likely because it is sandwiched between two other high rise unremarkable buildings. The hotel has no lobby to speak of and upon first encounter gives a rather odd impression: no doorman, barely one receptionist and hardly any space to place your luggage or to sit. To my great surprise the room was modern with a super comfortable bed; the bath fully equipped with fine toiletries—in short everything one needs for a comfortable stay in the center of Manhattan. The lack of a restaurant on site is not a major negative as there are plenty of places to eat—in different price ranges— on the block of the hotel and around the corner. A perfectly good choice!

Dear SRVP,

I'm glad that you did not judge our book by it's cover! What we lack in size we make up for in hospitality. Hope you enjoyed your time in New York outside of the hotel!

Just an average hotel. Rooms are small, but that is to be expected in the city. The windows were not well sealed so the noise from the street was even more than was expected and my biggest complaint about the place. The people at the front desk were friendly and helpful.

Dear egminsd,

Thank you for taking a minute to leave us some comments regarding your stay. I do apologize for the inconveniences that you experienced during your time with us. If you do decide to give us another shot, be sure to request a room toward the backside of our building, it will be much quieter and I am confident that your sleep quality will improve!

Hope to see you again,
Victor

excellent hotel, clean and comfortable rooms, if you can, choose a room on the inside better than those exhibited on the road unfortunately noisy.
Staff were very friendly and polite. Perfect location for visiting New York City.
Very good price!

This a very charming hotel with very small rooms but just in the heart of the city. Close to many attractions. I stayed in a room without a window probably the smallest but it was ok, clean and safe. As a summary, I liked the place and it is certainly worth checking while visitib NewYork

Dear Gulsenist,

Thank you for leaving us some comments! I see that you stayed with us almost a year ago, we have renovated almost all of the rooms since you visited so I would check us out again!

I'm glad that you felt safe and clean while you were here; those are usually two of the most important things for me when I travel.

Thank you again for the lovely comments!

Best,
Victor

A wonderful small family run hotel. Exceptional service. very clean and very quiet. Really great location.
Rooms not large but arranged so good it is really not a probem. A lot of storage places.
Staff very friendly Several nice restaurants same block and around the corner and 2 supermarkets/pharmacies (Duane Reade) 5 minutes walk away on 3rd and lexington avenues. 10 minutes walk to MOMA.
We enjoyed our stay there immensely. And as somebody already wrote - this is a home away from home. Thank You all people of this lovely hotel.
