    Fabulous

    I liked the location. The always available tea and coffee at no charge. The breakfast also free of charge and the wine and cheese in the evening.

    I was a bit disappointed with the size of the room. I expected it to be larger. When I booked a double room I expected a king-size bed and it was a bit smaller than a queen bed.

    Fabulous

    The location is fantastic. In terms of shopping you are 8 blocks from 34th Street and 2 blocks from 5th Ave, couldn't have been better. The continental breakfast was excellent and the staff were helpful and courteous. The room was small but very clean and comfortable.

    The cost is high due, I would imagine, to comparisons with other New York hotels. However, it is not a five star standard and as a result I felt it to be too expensive for what you got.

    Good

    The location was convent, great continental breakfast,

    We call the desk because our room had no water bottles, they never came. We were told we only get bottled water when we check in.

    i cannot fault Hotel Giraffe. we have stayed there before on 3 other occasions and always choose to stay there. we have already booked for september 1-5 to go to US Open Tennis. it's a fantastic hotel in a fantastic location providing fantastic service.

    i know it's a boutique hotel but brightening up the rooms with one wall being a bright strong colour would be my only suggestion.

    Very good

    The room was very nicely decorated - exactly as per the marketing photos and a good size. The linen was good quality and the room was well serviced and clean - everything worked. The inclusive breakfast available till 10.30am and the all day available coffee in the lounge were very good. I forgot my video camera after checking out of the hotel and they very kindly telephoned me to let me know.

    Definitely not a place for smokers. Although there is a comment on trip adviser from a guest saying that although it's a non-smoking hotel, smoking is allowed on balconies and the roof terrace - it was not the case for us. We had a tiny balcony you could not stand out on and the roof terrace (much pushed in the promotion of the hotel) was not accessible since it had been let for a week for a private function - we were left smoking in the street. We did not like the atmosphere in the lobby (which is the main lounge area) which was rather flat and unwelcoming. Staff were efficient, but most were not overly friendly.

    Superb

    It was a lovely hotel. Then rooms were very comfortably and clean. The staff were lovely and it was lovely to have breakfast available at the hotel and included in the price. There was a laptop available in the reception area for anyone to use to check their emails or send some. It was in a great location and we could walk to most places,

    We used the hotel phone in our room a couple of times and it worked out to be not a good idea as it was very expensive. Missed not having a bar in hotel but that was only minor as there were so many lovely places locally.

    The hotel has been decorated to a very attractive standard, the cleanliness was absolutely 1st class, I have high expectations of hotels and quite honestly Hotel Giraffe exceeded them all! A special thanks to the staff who we found very pleasant both to us and our 2 children.

    We had a 5 night stay and there was a little inconsistancy in the room service but housekeeping were superb in dealing with towels, bed turndown and chocolates within minutes of calling them - that is it, everything was great.
