I recently stayed at Hotel Mela for one night. The location and staff were great and exceeded my expectations! When I made a phone reservation, I requested a room on a high floor and with light as I had read reviews that the rooms can be on the dark side. When I arrived, my request was granted (10th floor) and... More

Absolutely fantastic location for our 4 night city break. Check in was efficient, the room was compact but not out of line with others in the area, we would use again but only for a busy break as opposed to one where you spend ages in the room.

We stayed here for 5 nights July 18-23, 2014 and was really impressed with Hotel Mela!!! We loved everything about it, the staff, location and having breakfast next door! We would definately book here again!!!!!! We were automatically given an upgrade upon check-in which was a cool surprise. The shower always had hot water and the room was super clean,... More

We arrived at Hotel Mela after a 14 hour Flight and then a drive from JFK check in was a breeze. The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. When opening the door to our room we found that although it was clean and comfortable But very small. Have three large suit cases and carry on baggage there was no room... More

We recently stayed for 3 nights at the Hotel Mela. The room was exactly as expected for NYC, small yet comfortable. It had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. We had ample storage and it was nice to have a safe in the room. The bathroom was small but it had everything we needed! The location was spot on.... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Mela. Check in was good, room was small BUT it's only a spot to refresh during the day and sleeping at night. Everyone very polite. AC went down for last 2 nights. The hotel gave us "passes" for a continental breakfast for two for 2 mornings. Got a deal for hotel through... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in July and with so much choice for hotels in New York we think we made a good choice. The hotel is in a great location less than a minute from Times Square on the left and the Empire State Building less than a 10 minute walk. We didn’t need to... More

This hotel is just 5 minutes from Times Square. We had 2 deluxe rooms on the 9th floor (we emailed the day before to ask for rooms on the upper floors due to previous reviews saying it was noisy). Hotel staff were excellent accommodating our requests. Both rooms were really quiet, very spacious, clean and comfortable. There is an excellent... More

The location, just footsteps away from times square and all the shopping we wanted, was perfect. Our room was clean and everything smelled fresh. The lobby staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Great value!
