Our stay was perfect! From check-in to check-out, everything was more than fine. Nice, clean and spacious room for NYC, nice amenities and great service. Breakfast more than fine and afternoon wines didn't hurt either. The hotel will be my base in the city from now on. Definitely!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 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...

Everything about this hotel is fabulous. From the cappuccino/espresso machine and snacks in the lobby to the spacious, clean, and comfortable room - complete with slippers and robe. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Location was also central to all my needs. Best of all, it is affordable when you compare it to other hotels. This is where I...

Found this little gem near Union Square while looking for a room for 3 while visiting our freshman daughter. Corner suite was double the size of the typical Manhattan room with King bed and separate living room with comfortable pull out sofa for our teen. Spacious compared to other places we have stayed. Nice breakfast and happy hour in lobby...

When I first began staying at the Hotel Giraffe several years ago, few travelers seemed to know about it. Perhaps my reviews have been too glowing, but now it seems to be one of the most popular hotels in the city. Deservedly so. The location is perfect - close to all subway lines and a wide array of restaurants (including...

A birthday girl and bride weekend celebration. Great location, nice breakfast, great on site restaurant. Centrally located to go up or down town. Subway two blocks away. Hotel staff very accommodating.

I have stayed many times and I am satisfied always! Staff is great! Location I love and the morning breakfast and afternoon snacks are a welcome. Would be my choice of hotel to stay any time of year. Thanks again staff at the Giraffe Hotel for a comfortable 2 night stay.

I won't go into too many details about the Giraffe as many other reviewers have covered this. The Giraffe is a small hotel by NYC standards. It lacks the facilities provided by the larger hotels but this is where its charm lies. We booked a family room with two queen beds for my wife, myself, and two teens. We stayed...

Unfortunately I had to cancel reservation one day after stated deadline (6 days prior to arrival) - no questions asked, really ice people. No doubt will stay here to check the hotel next time I fly to NY!!!

We just returned from NYC and The Giraffe did not disappoint. I travelled with my family of four and we stayed in the King Suite. I was worried that it would be too tight for the four of us and almost booked another room; however, I'm happy I didn't because this room was perfect. The pullout bed was enough room...
