I almost hesitate to write this review as I am tempted to keep it to myself, but that would be too selfish. We stumbled into this hotel a few years ago when they were having a wonderful introductory special. I was initially hesitant as there is almost no street presence and a rather small lobby. As we soon found out,... More

It's hard to find a hotel near Time Square that is both clean and affordable at the same time. Hotel Mela is this exception. Service is good. Wifi worked reliably. Rooms are a bit small but clean and functional.

This hotel is next to Times Square and we stayed here for 3 nights. The staff is very friendly and helpful! Our room was in the back of hotel and it was small but clean (including the carpet and the bathroom) and a bit noisy due to outdoor AC units. Because of this noise we had an early wakeup and... More

Found this hotel on a Travelzoo deal for $279/nt for a deluxe queen, included breakfast every day and 2 free cocktails next door every day. Based on NYC prices, the breakfast and drinks easily had a $60 value to them, so that in itself was a great deal. I did a LOT of research prior to our first stay in... More

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights from the 14th sept. The hotel is located in a fantastic location if you want to be within walking distance to Times Sq, broadway and subways. As previous reviews have mentioned the air on units are noisy but we was lucky enough to have slept through it. However please be advised that this... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Mela in December 2013. Not only is it literally steps away from Times Square, the price we paid was incredible. If you're staying in NY, it's going to be expensive, but Hotel Mela is completely affordable.The price you pay for the location you are in is just amazing. The staff was friendly and... More

Arriving in the room we noticed immediately that there was no cold water in the sink... We called maintenance who sent somebody who had a look... More

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
