“Great hotel!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We stayed at the Hotel Giraffe for 4 nights this past July. We loved staying here. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We loved the continental breakfast and the wine/cheese every afternoon was great after a day of exploring the city. This hotel is in a perfect location within walking distance to the Empire State building and the flat iron district. We will definitely be back!

We've just had a wonderful few days at the Giraffe and can't praise it highly enough. The room was immaculate and beautifully clean and the beds were really comfortable. The staff were helpful and friendly. The complementary breakfast and cheese and wine were just the icing on the cake. We found the location handy for the Empire State Building and for the 4/5/6 subway lines. Very highly recommended.

A simple no nonsense friendly hotel in mid town (near Flatiron). Great wine and cheese from 5-8pm and great continental breakfast served in the lobby. Very friendly staff esp Gabi serving the above. Irving on the door also v helpful.

If you want views, bacon, bad service or poor location: find another hotel. If you want really good atmosphere, perfect service, nice breakfast, cozy "wine and dine" afternoons, spacy rooms: choose this hotel. Really recommendable at all levels.

Room Tip: Get a room towards 26th Street for less noise.

Nearly everything about this hotel was perfect, but the best thing was the friendly and helpful staff. Located centrally within walking distance of the Flat Iron, Empire State and Times square the hotel is relatively small and has a nice personal touch. The complimentary breakfast and cheese and wine buffet in the evening are a real bonus. A special mention has to go to the catering team and concierge, especially Gabi and Cody who stood out amongst a very strong team. I recommend this hotel to couples and families alike.

Room Tip: This is central New York so all rooms will be a little noisy, but the higher the better.

We have stayed at the Hotel Giraffe several times.The location of the hotel is very convenient, and we have never been bothered by traffic noise. The rooms are elegant and clean, and the staff friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast is fresh and delicious, and the breakfast staff is service-minded and pleasant. There is a gym available nearby for guests. We will definitely stay here again.

This is a great hotel to stay at while in NYC. We had a luxury suite. It was a nice size room, very clean, great service. We stayed for 5 nights and never experienced any problems. Great selection of complimentary coffee, water, fruits available all day. Breakfast was always stocked well and good selections. Wine and cheeses in the evening was fantastic. Short walk to metro was very convenient. HIghly recommend this property.
