A stay at The Giraffe is like staying at a friends home ( a good friend!)- the staff is so welcoming and sincere, always helpful with any questions. The rooms are very large by NYC standards and the small balconies are a real bonus. The location is perfect for heading up, down or across town. Always easy to get a...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 February 2017 via mobile

This hotel was wonderful from check in to check out. It is a small boutique hotel that is warm and welcoming. We had two rooms, one a king bed room with a separate sitting area and another room with two queen beds. Both rooms were very comfortable. Nice linens and nice towels too. The queen room actually had a small...

This was my 8th time to Hotel Giraffe in the last 7 years. I love this place from its location, the rooms , the amenities and services, and most of all the staff. Special thanks to Gabriella who always makes sure my glass of prosecco is topped up.

I stayed here for 3 nights with my sister and we both loved it. The staff are fantastic - especially Gabriella - who made our stay so special. The breakfast, which I would normally not have in the hotel , is super and the wine & cheese is a lovely way to chill after shopping all day. I love the...

I have stayed in 5 star hotels all over the world but I must say my short 2 night stay at the Giraffe was impeccable and flawless. Check-in was fast and easy, the room was perfect, even my morning room service arrived right on time and hot. The evening wine and cheese in the lobby was an added plus. And...

When I visit NYC this will be the ONLY place I stay. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. I loved the nightly wine and cheese with piano music and our room was lovely (the bed was very comfortable!) It is close to several restaurants and a short cab ride to anything else. This hotel provided the perfect backdrop to the perfect...

I was a bit disappointed in the hotel as it was rated so high on tripadvisor. The intial welcome by the hotel staff was wooden...it was like she was reading a text. The walls are paper thin...I could hear someone taking a shower in the room above. You can hear the garbage collection early in the morning (outside on the...

I believe we have identified the issue and we...

We loved the Hotel Giraffe! Staying in the family suite was perfect for our family of five. We loved the daily wine and cheese as well as how helpful and accommodating the staff was. We will definitely return for another stay!

We booked here for my 30th celebration trip to New York. My parents had visited NYC before but still weren't sure where the best location would be to base ourselves. I'm forever grateful that we stumbled upon the Hotel Giraffe on our search. The location is perfect for walking north or south, within 2 blocks of the subway stop that...

“Highly recommend opting for a King Suite/Balcony room. For the money it is EXCEPTIONAL. If you are vacationing in NYC you will relish in the extra comfy space their King Balcony Suite offers. For NYC it is SPACIOUS. The sitting area is the perfect place to escape for a glass of wine after a long day of sight seeing, shopping or museum trekking.”
