“Well Done”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

Took a chance and stayed here on a recent business trip to NYC. Typically stay at the Four Seasons or the Palace, but tried the Hotel Giraffe on the recommendation of a friend. Wow...what a great stay. The staff is very, very good. They treat you so very well...they want to help and make your stay the most enjoyable possible. They were just superb.

Had a suite on the 6th floor that was clean and had a separate bedroom. Very good bed...wifi service was quick and effortless to access. Snacks available throughout the day as well as fresh fruit included in your room rate. Breakfast as well.

Superb rate and value for the money. It could be one of the best hotel rates for great value in NYC. Did I mention location. Outstanding and close to some of the best restaurants in the city.

I travel extensively and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and will stay here again when I return to NYC.

Room Tip: Check the suites out if you need additional room. Sofa bed pulls out to a full bed.

What a great hotel. Excellent staff: very helpful, really go out of their way to make you feel at home. Great amenities, continental breakfast is lovely, wine and cheese from 5pm and other snacks available throughout the day and all included in your room rate.

We travelled with our 8 month old daughter and it was no trouble at all. They provided a good travel cot with blanket and a separate unfilled fridge (both of which i requested at the time of booking). We had a king room with balcony: it was spacious, well appointed, comfortable and perfectly adequate. Nowhere in NYC is "quiet" but the hotel is really well situated and noise is not a big issue. Our daughter slept through the night each night.

Excellent location - midtown so easy to go up towards Central Park or down towards the new Trade Centre building, Meat packing district etc. We walked everywhere, really easy to get around. Madison Square Park is one block away with a really good burger place (Shake Shack) but beware of the queues! Def worth the wait though. The Highline is another great attraction (old railway line that used to service the meat packing district that has been made into a walkway). Great views of the city, easy to join at several points.

All in all - we had an excellent trip and would definitely stay at Hotel Giraffe again. There's a reason it's in the top 5 on Trip advisor.

I've spent many many years in corporate hotels and decide to try something a bit different. A good holiday starts with building a good relationship with the staff before arrival and this we most certainly did, the staff at this hotel are excellent. On arrival we found a hotel placed in an exellent location, a relaxed atmosphere, beautiful room fully kitted to cope with all our USB needs. Service during breaksfast and evening cheese and wine was fantastic. Would I change anything no, would I return again YES. Thank you Peter and the team for such a wonderful week.

Room Tip: Go for a balcony it really on Park Avenue it lets you really feel the buzz of the city.

What a gem of a hotel. Wonderful staff, great location we came for the Big Apple BBQ and to visit with my son and daughter in law. It's one block from Madison Square Park the locale of the BBQ. We walked everywhere with the exception of Brooklyn that's when the staff gave us perfect directions for the subway. I will definitely stay here again and by the way the Bread and Tulips restaurant is pretty darn good give it a try.

We stayed here for a long weekend in NYC. This hotel is such a gem. It is conveniently located, quiet and comfortable. Loved the breakfast, wine and cheese and snacks throughout the day (all included). The coffee is the best in the city and worth the stay all by itself. The room is spacious, clean and also quiet. It was such a pleasure to stay here and will be back.

I was so impressed with everything about Hotel Giraffe-- the lovely light-filled lobby, the very helpful staff, the charming room with a balcony where one can sit with a perfect cup of coffee from the machine in the dining room. Everything was sparkling clean and new, and almost spa-like in the peace and quiet. I loved having wine and cheese in the afternoon, and a perfect breakfast in the morning.
New York has so much to offer, but I have to admit, I was happy to just stay put and relax in this hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a balcony

We stayed here the first week of June with our two children, aged 8 and 2. We had a room with two double beds, and a balcony overlooking the corner of 26th street and Park. Room was spacious and well appointed. We have traveled all over the world with our kids, and this is one of the largest rooms we have had in a major city. The hotel is in a perfect location, a few blocks from Little Korea, and right around the corner from Curry Hill. It was a short two block walk to the subway, with easy access to upper East side museums, Times Square, Grand Central etc. There is a brilliant park about a block away with a nice play area for children and also home to the Shake Shack. We walked to the Empire State Building, the New York Public Library, and Bryant Park. The hotel has a complimentary breakfast (yogurts, fresh fruit, cereals, hard boiled eggs, etc) and a nice wine and cheese reception with veggies etc in the afternoon which served as a nice snack before going out to dinner later in the evening. There is also a free 24 hour coffee bar in the lobby. The lobby/breakfast area was small but had very comfortable seating and was especially pleasant in the evening when they usually had someone playing the piano. We would definitely stay here again! Highly recommended!
