We stayed here for 9 nights in April and found the hotel to be faultless in its level of friendliness, cleanliness and location. Some might think rooms are small but we think they were great value. All staff at the front desk were very helpful and gave great advice for local restaurants etc. However,, if looking for something quick to...

Staff is a extremely hospitable and very kind! The room was clean, a little small but perfect for my stay. The hotel is within walking distance of Centrel Park and the Empire State Building. I highly recommend this place to anyone!

We stayed at the Carvi for four nights over Easter 2015. The lobby area is small, as are the rooms, but the hotel is clean and convenient. The staff are polite, friendly and very helpful. There's a subway station just around the corner, on the E line from Jamaica Station if you're coming in from JFK. The location is between...

Reviewed 7 April 2015

Never saw the corridors of a hotel so narrow; stayed on the 2nd floor with no view at all. It is nice for a quick stay 1 or 2 nights if you want to be close to 5th avenue (uptown) and go to Moma for instance.

Dear George N, Thank you for taking a minute to leave us a review! We do apologize if the hallways are a bit narrow compared to other hotels you have seen; space in NY is hard to come by! Hope to see you again soon, Victor

Stayed at the carvi hotel for 6 nights. Great location! Centrally located in midtown. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. There is no breakfast available at the hotel but there's a Starbucks right outside the hotel so it was very convenient. I would definitely stay there again.

I stayed here with a friend when she came to visit (I live in NYC but she is highly allergic to cats, and I have 2). I was shocked at how spacious and clean the rooms are. She was initially in a room that smelled heavily of smoke (even though this is a no-smoking hotel). She called the front desk...

Boutique style hotel within walking, or a short metro ride to all of what New York City has to offer. The rooms are much larger than the typical NYC hotel rooms. Plus the prices are well below the others. Rooms are very clean and not noisy. I'm looking forward to returning to the city for leisure and once again staying...

Stayed here for 4 days in feb 2015, during the coldest days they have experienced in NYC in many years. The hotel,is near Bloomingdales and just off Lexington. Central , clean , modern and relatively quiet for a hotel in NYC. Hotel staff are exceptionally nice and helpful. Definitely stay here again.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

“My room did not have a view and looked out at the very close next door building. I didn't mind this as I was only there at night and I liked being off the street (for the noise!) but this might not be to everyone's liking (also makes it dark in the room) so you might want to ask about your room location. ”
