The MAve Hotel
Ranked #395 of 473 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Stayed at the Mave late September 2013, as a couple, and had a very good general impression.

The room is not very big, but was comfortable enough for two people + suitcases and the occasional shopping bags. Superking bed, nice, comfortable sheets. Street was a little noisy even though I was on the 8th floor, which was annoying.
Bathroom is spacious, but lacked room to accommodate day-to-day personal hygiene items for two people.
Breakfast... don't count on it. Few items, in a cramped room in the top floor.

Overall is a very modern looking and comfortable hotel, with GREAT location, close to two/three different subway lines, but could use minor touches, like soundproof windows, a shelf in the bathroom and better breakfast. A very good value if you are on vacation and doesn't plan on staying in much.

Stayed one night. Wanted to stay at another place, but was directed to the mave, because I was only staying the one night.

Generally a nice, clean, safe hotel -- I got what I paid for.

Breakfast was the biggest disappointment -- something less than you would get at a youth hostel.

My quest continues...

Stayed: April 2013, traveled solo

We stayed as a couple at the MAve twice this month (mid-september and end of september). It was our honeymoon, and NY was one of our destinations. First time they gave us one of their smallest rooms, which was definetely NOT suitable for more than one guest. A small bed attached to the wall, no space for suitcases. We asked for a larger room but there was no availability. Second time our room was a proper double room on the 2nd floor, so we were satisfied this time, even though it took us quite some time to sleep at nights due to the noise from the street. Moreover, outside wind comes through the airconditioning system so it could be quite chilly the early hours by the end of september. The friendly staff, free wi-fi and flat-screen tv are the positives. Location is excellent. I would give a higher rating if it wasn't that tiny room the first time we stayed.

Room Tip: Request rooms as high as possible

This hotel hits all the right spots- great rooms, great location, bonus breakfast, great staff & great value. Couldn't have asked for more from our trip and they were even kind enough to upgrade us as it was all of our 30th birthdays. The breakfast of pastries & coffees was a nice touch on the top floor & the quirky retro pictures and furniture gave the place a great vibe. The room even had complimentary toiletries. We were thoroughly impressed and would have no hesitation returning- would be our first choice on returning to NYC.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as high as possible to reduce notice from street- unavoidable in busy NYC.

I've stayed at The Mave (27th and Madison) twice in the past year. The first thing that comes to mind is how courteous and helpful the front desk staff are. Extremely accommodating. This past summer, we weren't going to be checking in until Sunday. We had to make a quick trip on Saturday to Connecticut to drop our kid at camp. We didn't want to haul all our stuff out of town for one night...called the The Mave, told them our situation and they said, by all means, drop your stuff before you leave town and it'll be here Sunday when you get back.

It's a small hotel. Just a few rooms per floor. The rooms, by New York standards, are pretty good sized. Comfortable bed and pillows to start. Good tv, iPod player (though this last time, mine didn't work). The bathroom is where they fall short a bit. The shower is not in a separate stall. It's at the same level as the floor to the rest of the bathroom. So, on occasion, the water can run into the sink area. It's not that big a deal. Just a little quirk. The water pressure is always good, though.

There's not much else to say. The only real snafu I've run into is that sometimes, during busy times of year, they require you to stay five nights minimum. I'm usually in town for 3 or 4, so that takes them off the table for me sometimes.

All in all, they're worth looking into.

Room Tip: Great place across the street for carry out breakfast, lunch.

This is a quaint hotel in a place that you wouldn't think you would find it! RIGHT on Madison Avenue, around the corner from Madison Square Park, and in the middle of everything you need - yet still a mellow (by NYC standards) location to chill out!

The prices are great for what you are getting. The hotel is clean, modern, and has nice little extras here and there to really make you feel like you're doing it up big, but not with a big price tag. It *is* NYC though, so don't expect huge spacious rooms... DO expect an iPod Dock and flat screen TV!

Very recommended.

Room Tip: If you want a little extra space, upgrade. If you don't mind, stay small.

My husband and myself stayed in this hotel as it was recommended by my son as a good location to see the sights yet not bang smack in the middle of the madness of time square. We went there for our anniversary and my son had pre formed them of this. We were upgraded to a bigger room and wine and chocolates were placed in our room as a surprise...such a lovely touch. It was close to the subway which for $31 dollars you can travel as much as you want anywhere in the city. Breakfast consists of delicious pastries and coffee which is complimentary however there is palace called cafe28 which you can get a cooked breakfast. Even though they don't have a restaurant we were able to order various food from a variety of restaurants which was delivered to our room for free through a website called seamless, however there are so many places to eat, however the closer to time square or chain restaurants tend to be expensive so we stuck to local diners and local restaurants. We bought wine to drink in our room and staff at the mave provided glasses and corkscrew, they were always very helpful and definitely made our stay a very easy pleasant experience. Clean towels and room was freshened every day which was great. We will definitely be staying here again when we visit New York again. Cannot fault the place at all !!!
