    Property location is perfect and the staff are amazing. This is slightly larger than Boutique hotel status, but has all the wonderful attributes of a small wonderfully run place.

    Had a wonderful stay at this hotel with 2 adults & 2 teenage boys. Stayed in a a balcony room with 2 x queen beds. Room was perfect for us. Staff are all very helpful & friendly. Breakfast is adequate, but the wine & cheese in the evening is 5*. Thank you to Gabriella for making us feel special x

    Cannot fault the Giraffe. Loved the breakfast and the 5-8 drinks and cheese. It was close to so many good eating establishments, Madison Square Park and the subway. A wonderful retreat after a busy day playing tourist. Thoroughly recommend.

    Fantastic Location and Outstanding Service

    We were looking for a hotel with a little more room in a good location and could not have been happier than we were with Hotel Giraffe. Room was really spacious for NYC, and the location, with easy access to subway both uptown and downtown was excellent (as were the dining options in close proximity). Breakfast and wine and cheese happy hour were superb, and the service was friendly and unpretentious. We will most definitely be staying again when next we visit NYC.

    Cozy, convenient and comfortable

    It was my second time at Hotel Giraffe and it was as good as it was 5 years ago. It is not a regular hotel like these chain hotels with gym, pool and beauty center, it is pretty much an apartment you have while visiting NY... a OK uncomplicated breakfast, wine and cheese by night and coffee all day long are a nice touch that make the experience cozy. A very good location at Park Avenue South, which may not be the coolest place but is very convenient and close do subway. I was quite happy to find Gabriela hosting the wine and cheese sessions and to hear the coolest piano player ever... it is so good when you come back to a hotel and you feel as if you are visiting friends... I do recommend it.
