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.

Staff was friendly and rooms were clean and tidy. Turn down service in the evening was a plus. Great restaurant and bar, Bread and Tulips on the premises plus lots of restaurants within walking distance. Liked the location in the city and 4/5/6 subway nearby at 23rd. Would definitely return

Thank you for another stay at your hotel. The reception desk was quick, courteous and friendly. Gabriella, lounge hostess, is such an amazing worker who truly cares about the guests. Looking forward to staying again at your amazing boutique hotel in April for my birthday!
