The real plus for this hotel is the central location; close to Times Square, Fifth Avenue, Madison Avenue, Bryant Park, ... However, the room that we were staying in was very small and there was hardly any room to place our luggage. The bed was so narrow that we've actually didn't get a good sleep during our entire 6 days... More

Hotel Mela is a comfortable hotel a block from Times Square. A great choice for business travelers with meetings in the Bryant Park/Grand Central area, as well as tourists looking for a centrally-located "home base." There is access to basically all the subway lines and plenty of cabs nearby on 6th Ave. Wifi is free. The rooms are small but... More

Great stay at Hotel Mela. Best thing about this hotel is location. Less than a minute from Times Sq and around a 10min walk from Penn Station and Grand Central (less than 20mins from all major sights too: ESB, Central Park, 5th Ave). Location is almost too good as nearest subway is through busy Times Square, and taxis always in... More

Everything is easy access. -Great location. You're directly across the street from the Belasco Theatre. -Wonderful restaurants within a few steps. -Room... More

My husband and i go to NYC several times a year for theatre, museums and dining experiences. We usually stay at a Marriott or Starwood property, but i saw a deal on TravelZoon for $169/night rates for last weekend, so we decided to give the Hotel Mela a try. First of all, great location if your plans include any broadway... More

Small but comfortable room Very clean and the staff were very nice and helpful. Thanks for making our stay in the Big Apple very enjoyable. Only thing negative was our Internet connection worked very poorly in our room.

This hotel is convenient if you're looking to stay close to the Times Square action. As one would expect in a big city such as NYC, the rooms are very small. We upgraded to a suite-which was the size of a normal room anywhere else. However, we did see into one of the twin bed rooms when the maid was... More

Booked a room on the ninth floor at the Hotel Mela based on a Travelzoo deal that came with a lot of perks. I'm not sure what the full price would have been, but my friend and I were certainly pleased with this little find. Here is what we liked best: Friendly, accommodating staff who provided excellent service all around... More

Nothing too fancy, small rooms, old building and facilities, almost impossible to flash the toilet, but really nice H2O products in a bathroom Not sure it's worth the rate ($300 per twin bed room) Would probably look for another hotel next time :)

Dear Dana A, Thank you very much for your feedback. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed our H2O products and I would like to apologize for the issue with the toilet and the lack of space in your room. Some of you rooms are definitely less spacious than others. If you are coming back to NYC any... More

Stayed here in May 2015. The hotel was modern, clean and the staff very friendly. The best thing would have to be the location right next to Times Square, that meant as tourists we were already in the heart of the city and didn't have too much travelling. A problem would have to be the size of the rooms and... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood 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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
