Reviewed 23 August 2014

The Carvi is a small Boutique hotel and if your not looking for it, you'll never see it....

It's a very clean and comfy hotel but our room was very small. The location is good but services are limited. If you;re looking for a place to bed down for the evening don;t hesitate booking a room at the Carvi.

1. Location of the hotel is good. Is easy to locate and walk to Central Park.
2. Hotel room is very clean.
3. Friendly and very helpful front desk.
4. Comfortable bed.
5. Room is just slightly small but is fine to me as I prefer it to be compact.

We loved are experience at the Carvi! From check-in to check-out, the staff was wonderful, friendly and personable. We were treated like they felt privileged we were there, as opposed to most hotels who think guests do them a favor by staying there.
The décor of the hotel was modern and fresh and looked brand-new.
We had a 2-double bed room which was a bit small but perfectly normal given NYC room-size. There were 3 of us and we had plenty of room for us and our stuff, especially since it's NYC - who stays in their room that much anyway!!
One of my big concerns was our car since we had to drive to the city this trip. But the Carvi has a deal with a parking garage right down the street and they were fantastic too!
All of this with a perfect location - easy walking distance to Rockefeller Center & Grand Central Station (even Times Square if you had time). And the cab fares to Central Park and Battery Park were even reasonable because of the location.
We will be back I know that!

Dear Paige M,

Well it certainly seems like we hit a home run during your stay! Thank you for such great comments!

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the hotel and New York City but I am happiest about the way the Front Desk treated you. We are so proud of our staff and reading these types of reviews makes us, and also the staff, very happy!

I am not exactly sure when you stayed with us but if it was in the past 2-3 days, you may have seen our new furniture! We are in the process of remodeling the furniture in our rooms and all of them will be done this week. If not, you'll have to come visit us again to check it out!

Best,
Victor

Enjoyed our weekend stay in this well located, clean and comfortable hotel. It does not offer a ton of amenities, which keeps this from getting five stars, but I also didn't need any amenities and was happy to not have to pay a high room rate to have them on hand. Definitely would stay again. Nice quiet roof top area. Value for money.

Our first stay at this hotel was excellent. Front desk staff very friendly, baggage storage very easy.Had some fears of noise with first floor room but turned out to be one of the quietest experiences we have had in New York. With three people sharing a double executive room, we found that there was enough room for bags, and could still negotiate around the room. Hotel supplied a 10% discount for midtown grille across the street where we enjoyed a very reasonable full breakfast. Shower was one of the more powerful ones we have had in the city. Room was very clean and we would definitely return to this hotel in future.

Dear crest151,

Thank you for the kind words. We try very hard at keeping the lobby quiet in the late night and early morning hours so it's good to know it pays off!

See you next time,

The Carvi"s location is excellent, in the South east of Central park, near the subway.
The room was not so big but fit well for a family of four.
Even if we were in the center of Manhattan, the room was very calm
There is at the 7th floor a large terrace with a couch, armchairs and a coffee table.
You can have your breakfast or lunch here with the sight on the skycrappers

Room Tip: If you plan to come by car in NYC; Carvi's Hotel doesn't offer a parking area. We used to...

Stayed for 3 nights and have nothing but good feedback. Great location, excellent service, quiet room (in the back), clean comfortable room w/ coffee machine! There is no restaurant or bar but there is no shortage of great bars and restaurants in the area. They have a lovely roof terrace as well, BYOB and relax there. Have already reserved a room for next trip.

Room Tip: request back location for quiet room.
