“Perfect NY Hotel”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

I cannot say enough positive things about Hotel Giraffe. The hotel itself was small and beautiful. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The complimentary breakfast and wine/cheese reception was incredibly convenient and also delicious. The price was also unbeatable for NYC. I will definitely be returning to Hotel Giraffe in the future!

My wife and I stayed two nights in a king suite and could not have been happier with the choice. Room was nicely laid out and everything was top quality. An example: the door to the bathroom was solid wood with a large panel of privacy glass. The included continental breakfast was a great option as was the afternoon wine and cheese. The staff was professional, friendly and obviously into taking care of guests. The location was ideal for our weekend plans. I would definitely stay again and recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: Go for the suite if it fits your budget. One person can sleep late while the other reads the paper...

Lovely hotel, extremely friendly staff. The location is very convenient for people planning to visit Broadway shows, as the hotel is just a couple of blocks away from Madison Square Park and the yellow NQR line, which you pick up in Times Square. Bread and Tulips has excellent food in a casual setting. The breakfast options each morning are just what you need -- cereals, pastries, oatmeal, fruit -- and the late afternoon wine bar is a great way to relax after a long day.

We enjoyed our stay very much and found the following aspects of the hotel to be exceptional; staff, cleanliness, comfort, location, breakfast and wine reception. The young men working at the front desk were so helpful and friendly. Gabriella, at the wine and cheese reception, was so pleasant and kind. We stayed in a suite with two adults and our kids; 10 & 14. We set a comfortable temperature on the thermostat and kept the fan running which blocked out any street noise during the night. All the best.

Room Tip: Suites were very comfortable for a family of four; Son on sofa sleeper, daughter on ottoman with cha...

I like to travel. And when I travel I like to experience neighborhoods and not necessarily tourist traps. The location of hotel giraffe is perfect for that. In the flat iron district close to a few parks, still walking to flat iron and empire state building, but also cool to walk to SoHo shopping and other cool neighborhoods.
Staff is super nice, they call cabs, give good directions, very polite and helpful!
And best of all-complimentary wine and cheese at 5pm-so nice to relax to as well as save money on snacks and breakfast.
Complimentary breakfast (with lots of choices and actually tasty foods and healthy stuff-not just danishes etc) and wifi (with no access probs)
Rooms are spacious (we had a room with two double beds) and they are updated with good lighting (I had dark rooms) but still had the automatic black out shades so you can sleep in!!!
Stay here if you want that nice, friendly small hotel feel close to cool neighborhoods away from the touristy-mess near time square.

I am a repeat visitor to library collection many times to Giraffe and Casablanca. Unless you experience this Hotel group you don't know what you are missing! They have got it all right! Choose your location in NYC then choose your Library Hotel and everything will be Perfect!

Room Tip: Never disappointed yet.

Can't say enough about this hotel! Perfect location in the Flatiron District- can walk to everything from Times Square to SoHo. It's the little things that make the hotel great: fabulous staff, rooms with Memory Foam pillows, excellent light breakfast, wine and cheese in the evening. All for a reasonable price by New York standards. Definitely my go to hotel in the future!
