This stay exceeded my expectations on every level. I needed to be in the area for business and chose the hotel for proximity, I will return next time in order to have a wonderful experience. The staff could not have been more attentive nor the accommodations more pleasing.

Stayed here for one night when we went out with friends in the city. The hotel staff were fantastic and the complimentary wine and cheese night was a very welcome surprise. The room was amazing! A huge bed and even a lounge. We didn't think we would get to use this but the 1pm check-out ensured we could. The late check-out was one of the best features. Also, the roof terrace looked like it would be a very cool place to enjoy a refreshing drink in the summer. It was freezing when we were there so we couldn't really enjoy this. In summary, if you want a comfortable, clean and well appointed hotel you can't go wrong with hotel giraffe. Definitely 5 stars!

We stayed at the hotel giraffe for 4 nights over Super Bowl weekend. This hotel was great!! We had a king suite which was perfect. Had separate rooms between bedroom and living room. Small but nicely decorated. The continental breakfast was delicious and there was wine and cheese in the afternoon-which was very good. also, any time of day-if you popped in the hotel there were cookies and coffee/tea/hot chocolate. The restaurant attached was also delicious. The staff were always very pleasant and helpful. The lobby was comfortable and inviting place to come into after touring around the bustling city.

Room Tip: we asked for foam pillows and they were great!

This hotel is fabulous from check in to check out. The staff are all very friendly and make you feel at home as soon as you enter . The hotel is spotlessly clean and beautiful . Jose greeted us and took our luggage he is lovely and very friendly . Reception staff are very friendly and will do anything for you to ensure your stay runs smoothly , they ordered our show tickets and tour tickets all from reception , they are always smiling and ready to help.
Breakfast is wonderful with a huge choice in lovely piano lounge which is so comfortable .
Cheese and wine in the evenings is a joy , again very comfortable and homely .
The room was huge , with a huge bed and a lovely bathroom all you need toiletries even fab slippers and snugly bathrobes.
Nightly bed turn down service was a lovely touch .
If you are planning a wonderful trip to the Fabulous New York book this hotel , it is warm and friendly with 5 star staff and 5 star amenities . We stayed at the Hilton the night before we came here and there was no comparison the Hilton has a lot to learn from this hotel .
We loved every minute in New York and the cherry on the cake was returning to this hotel each night , we will definitely return .
Well done Hotel Giraffe a most excellent Hotel with excellent staff .

This was our first visit to New York and we picked the best hotel! It was fantastic - lovely clean rooms and very helpful staff. The breakfast in the morning in the large lobby area was nice - plenty to choose from, and they happily cooked up the porridge for me too! There was a coffee machine and tea available all the time too. The wine and nibbles in the evening was a great touch, especially after a long day sight seeing in the polar blast which had hit New York!

Lovely hotel with very pleasant people. Nice room. FREE Wi-Fi! Complimentary breakfast and complimentary wine & cheese "happy hour" with finger foods and live piano in lobby. So comfortable and in a good location. Across from Manzanilla restaurant, which is very good as well. I will definitely plan to stay here again. I highly recommend it.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It's not a typical NYC hotel. There was a balcony in our room, a lovely complimentary wine, cheese, olives, and nuts in the early evening, and complimentary breakfast ( eggs, toasted bagels, espresso, cappuccino, cereal, croissants, etc). The staff were absolutely wonderful.
The location is in a very safe area within waking distance to nice shops and great restaurants. We saw a concert at Irving Plaza and it was perfect for that.
Room was surprisingly big with a great bathroom. Very clean- not a stray hair or spec of mold anywhere-- I'm very picky.
Overall wonderful!!!
