Good service, confortable room and well located hotel. And with a fair price. What we liked best was the very good location of the hotel combined with a fair price. There were nothing special that we have liked least. The hotel is good and we will recommend for our friends.

My Husband and I stayed here for a short trip to NYC for our honeymoon! I had read a lot of reviews and decided to give this boutique hotel a try. Before our arrival I spoke with the staff about transportation from Newark to the hotel and a gentleman was very kind and set up a shuttle service along with...

The people make this hotel stay a pleasure. Most helpful all the time. Location is perfect for all tourist attractions and nice restaurants. We had an executive room which was quite big and quiet on floor 4. The only gripe would be not enough hanging space in wardrobe for longer items, especially if staying for long stays. Would definitely stay...

I recently spent a week at the Carvi Hotel. Nicely located on east 55th St, this small hotel has clean and quiet rooms, not large but bigger than one would expect for a hotel in this price range. Lots of restaurants nearby, about a half hour walk from the theatre district. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to...

I stayed for 3 nights over Christmas with my son (5). The hotel is quiet and the front desk staff very nice. No general lounge area to speak of. We did not attempt to go to the roof garden in this weather. It was clean and everything worked as expected. The room had a small fridge and there were some...

Dear MLR531, Thank you for taking some time to write us a review. It is good to hear that the noise level was low as this is not easy to achieve in many locations throughout the city. You are right, we may not have as much pizzazz but I hope we made up for it in other ways. It is...

This hotel is well located and very clean. The room we stayed in was small (typical NYC) but the bed was very comfortable. Walking distance to the subway and Central Park. Good restaurant choices nearby and we would be happy to stay here again.

The Carvi Hotel is in a great location for exploring New York. Our room was compact as you'd expect for a boutique hotel in such a good central location. The beds were extremely comfortable. We had a small window which was fine as we were hardly in the room. Staff very friendly & helpful. We have stayed at other hotels...

Firstly, I have to say that the location of this hotel is very good. Walking distance from Central Park and very close to both 51st & 59th Street subway stations...those two stations get you to so many different parts of the City. Unfortunately, that was pretty much the only positive with this hotel, which actually has all the standards that...

Dear Owen, We appreciate you taking some time to leave us such detailed review.

I also see that we fell short in many aspects during your stay. I have read your comments carefully and...

Hotel Carvi on East 55th St is a great place to stay for a few days while visiting NYC. Situated within walking distance of many of the Midtown sights including Grand Central, Times Square, Rockafella centre, Central Park and the shops of 5th Avenue.

The location is excellent as it is a short walk to the nearest subway station and plenty of shops and restaurants etc on 3rd Av. The roof top terrace is a nice touch, as the hotel does not have a bar we were able to bring our own drinks and sit outside, although a bit cold in November! The bed...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

“My room did not have a view and looked out at the very close next door building. I didn't mind this as I was only there at night and I liked being off the street (for the noise!) but this might not be to everyone's liking (also makes it dark in the room) so you might want to ask about your room location. ”
