Staff polite and friendly and rooms comfortable with a promised good nights sleep. People complaining about the space but personally found the rooms... More

I spent one night recently at the Hotel Mela. My ONLY regret is that I couldn't have stayed LONGER!!! The room was outstanding, clean, modern, and comfortable. The location is a homerun as well!! Being close to Times Square, and the Theatre District lends itself to being a GREAT base of operations to explore all that Manhattan has to offer.... More

Nice hotel! The location was short of a block from Times Square... Great location! The room was fairly small but I didn't spend much time in there. The staff was attentive and nice. I would definitely stay at Hotel Mela again!

From the moment we pulled up to when we checked out, everything was perfect. Short, very short walk to Times Square. Just steps from tons of shopping and dining locations minutes from the hotel. We chose to delay getting our rental car a few days since we utilized the hop on hop off buses down the block. Staff was great... More

We Price-lined a four star in the Times Square area and got The Hotel Mela for $125. Great location on 44th. Room was NY small, modernly furnished and very clean. Hotel common areas and hallways are small and quiet. Pleased with room and front desk service. At checkout there were several items from the minibar that we did not use... More

We recently stayed in NYC for 6 days, all at Hotel Mela. Our room was pristinely clean, and we didn't hear a peep of street noise or of other guests. It was quiet, especially considering you're only half a block from Times Square, we found the bed comfortable, and despite other reviewers stating the rooms are small, it had ample... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in NYC. We had tickets to see Dave Chapelle @ Radio City. The room was clean, very, very small, however, we didn't spend much time in the room. The bed was super comfortable and the room was very clean. The biggest perk is the location. We were able to walk to RCMH... More
