Enjoyed out time there, no complaints at all, after all how many hotels like this have wine and cheese gatherings at a piano bar, as well as great bagels in the AM with a paper.

I found the Hotel Giraffe quite by accident and had a wonderful time at this elegant property. I cannot complement the staff enough for their great service and attention to every detail. The rooms are spacious, nicely appointed, and updated. We were pleased to find plush robes and complementary water. In the morning there is a complementary continental breakfast available in the lobby, a nice way to start your day. The hotel is a short walk to the subway which proved to be an added bonus for us. After a busy day of shopping and touring the city, we were pleasantly surprised with their evening wine and cheese reception in the lobby. It was a nice way to relax before heading out to dinner. New York truly is the city that never sleeps. When you're ready to sleep, I'd highly recommend the Hotel Giraffe, a hidden gem in a very busy city.

My wife, daughter and I stayed at the Hotel Giraffe for one night in late October. From arrival until departure the staff were friendly and attentive. They were also very considerate to my 11 year old daughter and made us all feel very welcome.

The location is convenient being close to the subway and all the sites of NYC are easily accessible.

The buffet breakfast was fresh, and the evening wine & cheese selection a nice start to an evening.

I'd recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good value, comfortable hotel.

We stayed at the hotel giraffe for 5 nights 27 Oct- 1Nov 2009.
The staff were outstanding in providing excellent customer service, nothing was to much trouble and always with a smile.
The rooms were immaculately clean and furnished to a very high standard with a lovely balcony, providing an wonderful view.
The complimentary breakfast was ample with a very good choice to suite all tastes.
Evening cheese and wine served between 5pm - 8pm Monday - Saturday always went down well and again the staff should be complimented for their immaculate service.
Location was perfect only 2 mins from the subway.
A real treat to stay here and cannot recommend this fantastic hotel highly enough
Our advise - book a room and see for yourself !!

Hotel Giraffe was found by me through the Trip Advisor's reviews. It is the third time we choose a hotel this way,and like the other times, it was absolutely precise on all descriptions. Hotel Giraffe is very conveniently located in Park Ave ,between Uptown and Downtown, served by 3 subway lines nearby,and the big Union Square subway almost 8 blocks down.The neighbohood is amazing ,and full of excellent restaurants (Voce ,at 26th st,Gramercy Tavern, at 20th St,, Union Square Cafe,at 18th St.) .The room is very nice and full of amenities. Breakfast is included ,and also very nice (only misses a cheese and ham offer) ,as well as a cheese and wine/champagne selection at the lobby, from 5 to 8 pm, which is a very convenient snack for those who have theatre or concert at 8pm,which is the average time.The girls attendants at the breakfast/wine and cheese are also SO NICE and friendly,as well as the rest of the staff !We will definitely stay at Hotel Giraffe by next time in NYC!

We enjoyed our trip at hotel Giraffe. The hotel staff was very kindly. We were in the "terrace one bedroom suite".
Only one negative point: there was no hot water during one morning in the week we spent.
We'll come back to this hotel as soon as possible.
