All the other comments on this hotel are right. This hotel was the best that we have stayed in Manhattan and the service was extraordinary. From the minute we arrived at the hotel we were treated like we were in a 5-star hotel. The front desk also acts as a concierge and they were able to secure us reservations to one of Manhattan's most-popular (and hard to get in to) restaurants. Also, the LOCATION of the hotel is great. The subway is a five-minute walk and there are plenty of restaurants and bars in the general vicinity. They also offer FREE wireless internet (which is fast) and they also have a FREE European-style breakfast which was to die for. If we do travel back again, we are definitely staying here.

Had a lovely stay with incredibly nice front desk staff, a complimentary bottle of wine in honor of my husband's birthday, and gracious help on everything we needed. The room was nice and bigger than NY hotel rooms in general, well-appointed and comfortable. It was great having a little cold breakfast buffet in the lobby, just the way to start a day off easily and comfortably. We got a good rate, and I would stay here often if I could always get so reasonable a price.

This was our first trip to New York and chose Hotel Giraffe because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor - we were not disappointed. The rooms were very well appointed with a luxurious bathroom and a fantastic warm and powerful shower - the only thing I would say is that the beds were a little hard. Breakfast was lovely and a great way to start the day and we enjoyed the cheese and wine in the evening - a great way to relax after a hard days shopping. The location is perfect - near enough to walk to Times Square and Soho for shopping, but you felt like you were in a very smart area of the city and it was not too noisy at night. We would highly recommend the hotel.

After several bad experiences with cheap hotels in New York I stumbled across the "Giraffe". It is not a cheap place to stay but it is worth every penny. The rooms were very good, the staff most helpful and they made you feel at home from the moment you entered the hotel. The complementary wine and cheese offer on top of it really made it feel like a family visit. We will definitely return.

As an innkeeper in the White Mountains of New Hampshire I notice ever detail when it comes to hospitality. The Hotel Giraffe is a quite oasis in the middle of a crazy city. The place felt like home. Its décor invited relaxations. The European style breakfast was perfect and the afternoon Wine and Cheese reception is a nice touch. The free upgrade to a suite was greatly appreciated. All of the staff was friendly and professional.

Hotel Giraffe is a excellent small hotel. Good location near Union Square and Flatiron District, very friendly and helpful staff, excellent free continental breakfast. Our one bedroom suite was very comfortable and quiet. I would definitely stay here again.
