“Very Noisy”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

Have stayed here about 4 times. Great Location, friendly staff, very clean hotel, but very noisy due to heavy traffic area. Maybe there are rooms on the lower floors that are quieter. The Garbage trucks kept us up all night. It was a Sunday and maybe that is we
hen the commercial garbage trucks pick up.


Room Tip: Try to get lower floors in the rear away from street

This is a great boutique hotel in the Flatiron district. The rooms are not large , but they are very comfortable and well appointed. The free continental breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese spread make for great amenities that take the edge off the price which while not overly expensive was not cheap by NYC standards. From the doormen to the front end personnel expect nothing but the most courteous and friendly service. If there is any negative, it involves getting a cab in the evening...sometimes one cannot be found and that fact can be a little scary especially if you have theater tickets. All in all, however, we have stayed here many times and rate it as one of our favorites in the City!

Very comfortable room and extremely nice staff. it is right beside the Armory on Park Avenue. I am a light sleeper and unfortunately stayed there just after a big fashion show. The noise of the dismantling of the show continued for the 6 nights I was there! Lorries clunking around all night. Found the immediate vicinity is a bit boring. You have to walk a few blocks to get to restaurants and shops

Located in mid town New York the Hotel Giraffe is on an ideal location on Park Avenue such that getting up or down town is easy. So much so that most of what the city has to offer is within walking distance. If not the the subway is just on the door step and taxis are abundant. The hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Cleanliness is very good.

There are hot drinks in reception 24 7 and the couple hours the hotel serves cheese and wine is really very pleasant - particularly as it comes after a long day in e city and just before a night out. Ideal.

To be recommended.

Room Tip: 707 was a good room.

this was our third stay and it was very good. We are very impressed with the staff and the consistency of the quality of service. We will be visiting NYC on a regular basis for business and plan on staying with you guys from now on.

Room Tip: Keep everything as it is.

Small hotel by NYC standards, and all the better for it. Location is excellent, close to Washington State Park and a block from the Metro. Walkable within 15-20 mins both to midtown and to Greenwich Village/SOHO, but in a quiet area. Several cafes and restaurants within a block. The hotel itself is great, very low key. Lobby is bright and the breakfast light and a nice change from cooked fare. The evening cheese and wine is a real bonus at the end of the day, and a lovely start to the evening. The room was excellent, very comfortable and spacious. Shower fairly poor, which is my only complaint about the hotel at all. It's not the cheapest, but will happily return next time in New York
