Excellent location, especially for a first visit to NY: right in the middle of everything. Room is very comfortable. All around service was definitely very good and always friendly. Free cocktails and cheese after many miles of walking was very appreciated. Breakfast was exceptional for a small hotel. My wife and I would certainly repeat this pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Our room was facing the elevator. But we were not bothered by noise, since there is only 7 or 8 rooms on a floor.

We stayed at the Giraffe for a week. The young staff were amazing-friendly, very helpful and altogether impressive. It was good value, very comfortable and the housekeeping was spot on. We will certainly return to the Giraffe for our next visit to New York City.

The location is excellent. Right between Midtown and easy short walk to Greenwich Village and forther down to SoHo. Service is friendly and caring giving the impression that guest are not only welcome but they need to have all the service and amenities expected. The free cocktails and cheese in the evening and breakfast in the morning are a nice touch. However, I would not call it a Boutique Hotel. Rather plain vanilla, solid and honest quality. Rooms are well appointed but not soundproof. The little balconies dont do much in Manhatten. Try to avoid the rooms facing Park Avenue South - very loud in evening and early in the morning. You pay a rather steep price for what you get - but then this is Manhattan with hefty room taxes.

Room Tip: choose room out to 26th street instead of Park Avenue.

My wife and I spent three nights in this delightful hotel and couldn't have been happier. The staff is very helpful and friendly, the room well appointed and the location outstanding. There are great restaurants in every direction and because this isn't a tourist area none of them is touristy or schlocky. There is a subway station two blocks away and plenty of cabs cruising by. The breakfast is yummy and ample and served in a excellent street-level people-watching location. We couldn't have been more pleased.
