Once again my friend and I stayed at Hotel Mela. There was a "Fall Weekend" special that made for a great deal! We had a wonderful room in a super location with a full breakfast included for a low price. I booked through in-house reservations with Joanna. She is the best...friendly and efficient! When we arrived, we were given a... More

We were booked to stay at another hotel and only days before arriving in NY we realised that the wrong hotel had been booked, wrong location. Our travel agent changed our booking to Hotel Mela and we couldn't have been happier, the location is perfect for NY and was not expensive. So close to Time Square!! We were in the... More

This hotel is reasonably priced, an excellent location, and an extremely accommodating staff. We could not have wished for a more enjoyable stay. An extra bonus is the 'un deux trois' restaurant across the street. But don't miss breakfast at the bistro.

Had two recent stays, sandwiching a cruise out of Bayonne Cruise Terminal. First stay was one night before the cruise and we had a front room on 2nd floor overlooking 44th Street and unfortunately New York is a 24 hour city and yes that includes guys outside with a jackhammer at 2:30 in the morning. We survived the disturbance so... More

First of all I will get the negatives out of the way, we stayed here from the 3rd -10th September, we were given a room on the 16th floor, we were looking out at a brick wall, if you looked up you could see 2 sky scapers. The room was very dark & small & when we were in there... More

I recently stayed here at the Mela and was pleasantly suprised with how although being right by the infamous Times Square, once inside I felt like I was in a boutique hotel in a quite city. Lovely staff and am amazingly comfortable bed! Just don't touch the electric mini bar...

Great location, fabulous and central to all things New York. Staff helpful and work hard to keep hotel clean and maintained. Room was tiny but you are in NYC so only needed for sleeping. Unfortunately this is where the problem started. The hotel has a problem with the air conditioning so it is exceptionally noisy. I complained twice. Once was... More

Stayed at the Mela 6 nights at the end of August. Less than 1/2 block from Times Square so within walking distance of many attractions. Good location for tourists as tour buses all depart from vicinity of Times Square.The rooms at the hotel seemed clean and well maintained. Housekeeping was good. The hotel likes to market itself as a 'boutique'... More

I have wanted to stay at the Hotel Mela for years from the time the GM was kind enough to honor a mistake rate i saw on Travelzoo last year. That trip didnt work out but this one did. For $220 a night (includes taxes and fees) right in the Times Square area but on a street that we easily... More

Loved the location in relation to Times Square and Theatres. Just 1/2 block from Good Morning America corner ticker. Very convenient to walk in any direction. Staff was very helpful with recommendations, directions etc. for us first-timers in NYC! Room was larger than expected after reading other reviews, very good size for 2 persons, had all amenities as usual. Bathroom... More
