The Hotel Giraffe is a great place to stay at if you want to visit New York in the best possible conditions. The location is super convenient (2 metro stops within 3 blocks), and so we waled a lot! What we really loved about it is that it is a small hotel hotel for NY. Boutique hotel are really perfect...

We stayed in this 4 star boutique hotel for 10 nights and couldn't be happier. Travelled with our teenage daughter so the suite on the 12th floor was perfect. Room was quiet, clean and tidy. Beds comfy. Linen, white fluffy towels and toiletries were of high quality. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were friendly but professional....

Stayed here for 3 nights in April and could not have wished for a better experience. From first booking our reservation to arriving the staff could not have been more helpful with advice on where to visit and arranging transport from the airport to the hotel. On arriving the help continued with restaurant suggestions and bookings. The staff were extremely...

What a wonderful find - it was our first trip to NYC and what a great impression the staff made - polite, helpful and attentive, but not overly pushy or in your face, which we liked.. All the staff were friendly and helpful - booked restaurants and helped us with the subway and gave great advice. The breakfast and wine...

My wife and I came to NY from San Francisco to celebrate our anniversary. The facilities were very nice, but the staff was less than enthusiastic... Although they knew we were visiting from out of town and we were a bit tired upon check-in, not a word about the neighborhood or where we might get dinner in the area. No...

I recently spent one night at the Hotel Giraffe on very short notice. I chose it due to the location (and because of the funky name), and left the next day a huge fan. Making the online reservation the day of arrival worked incredibly well (not always the case, since some reservation systems block you, or make it impossible to...

Our daughter is a big fan of giraffes so once we'd found this hotel when looking for somewhere to stay in New York then there was probably no other alternative. Hotel Giraffe lived up to our expectations though and our daughter was excited & delighted. From the decor to the facilities to the giraffe statue on the roof terrace everything...

This was the second time we stayed at the Giraffe. We returned because what I felt the first time was that this was a hotel with personel that were honest and helpful, rightly proud of the work they did, and simply service minded and in a friendly way always wanted to make sure the guest was happy.
