Spent 5 nights at the Hotel Giraffe 3rd - 8th May 2014. What a gem this hotel is. We had a Classic King Suite at the back of the hotel facing onto 26th Street. The room had everything we needed and was relatively quite. This is NYC at the end of the day and there will always be street noise. The staff are friendly and attentive, always willing to help and advise, reception staff (Simona if I recall correctly) spent 45mins making a call to arrange our return pick up for which we were very grateful. The concierges are very helpful offering advice on how to get about, particularly on the subway which is only two streets away. The girls in the breakfast lounge/bar are attentive and we found the regular evening cheese & wine to be a very nice touch, particularly after a long day of trecking and sight-seeing. Breakfast, although 'continental' was more than adequate, cereals, fresh fruit, toasted bagels/bread, boiled eggs, fruit juice, tea/coffee etc. We found the location to be good for most attractions, quite central and within easy reach of the Empire State Building, Times Square and the Theatre District, most central attractions are within 10-30 minutes walk. We did however take the subway to 59th Street to visit Central Park and took a taxi to Battery Park for our trip to The Statue of Liberty. All in all we had a fabulous time in NYC and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Giraffe. If we do visit NYC again we will definately stay at the Hotel Giraffe or one of the sister 'Library' group hotels. A big thank you to all the staff at Hotel Giraffe for making our stay a thoroughly enjoyable one.
