Excellent value. We had a quadruple room and there was plenty of room. Very comfy bed. We had a balcony which we didn't use a lot (it was very cold) but was nice to have a peek outside. Free cheese and wine in the early evening which is great in an expensive city! Good location. 10 mins walk from Empire... More

A great hotel with exceptional staff dedicated to providing excellent customer service. A continental breakfast was included in my room rate, the breakfast had a good choice of items and was sufficient for me. My room has to be one of the quietest hotel rooms that I have stayed in whilst visiting New York. The room was clean, quiet and... More

Accomodation was excellent. Cleanliness 5/5, comfort 5/5. We were upgraded to a superior room. Service was also excellent and all the staff were very helpful. The hotel was in a good location, within easy walking distance of the Empire State Building, Times square and several subway stations.

Rooms were great. We had one that had a terrace. I loved having the free breakfast in the hotel each morning. There is also an Italian restaurant in the hotel. All the extras were great (i.e. cookies, beverages, and fruit during the day). Great location for several top restaurants. Service and staff was wonderful. You can go wrong booking this... More

The service at the front desk and door/bellman was very good. Really, every staff person I encountered, even the room attendants, seemed to be very happy, helpful, and resonated sincere willingness to help and pride in their job. Very refreshing! My guest room was well-apointed, and overlooked Park Avenue with a small balcony. The bed and pillows were very comfortable.... More

A home away from home! This was my second stay at hotel Giraffe and it was just as I remembered. Friendly staff, high service level, spacious and clean rooms and the breakfast and wine & cheese served in the lobby are such extra bonuses. An extra thank you to the very friendly and service minded hostess in the lobby who... More

“My guest room was comfortable and well-appointed. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, which is very important to me. Two suggestions in the bathroom: The plastic non-slip bath mat was rolled up and tucked away on the bottom shelf of the shelf. I didn't readily see it, and I unfortunately slipped and fell during my first shower, causing some injury. Recommend you have it out near the bathtub to avoid future liability. Also, I recommend comfort heigth commodes, please (I'm 60 years old).”
