“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

hotel located a few meters from Time Square, otimo service certainly return. Tradução
nicely cleaned, bathrooms small but very good. Like all hotels in New York, the hotel is very small, but still very nice. The hotel's restaurant is just beside the street.

Stayed in NYC for the first time after Christmas 2012. The hotel staff and concierge were extremely helpful in finding restaurants for you, giving you directions or hailing a cab during a storm. The room wasn't huge, but it was modern, clean with nice amenities and quiet. The hotel was very accommodating in holding our luggage for us upon arrival and departure. Lots of great restaurants very close - breakfast next door was great. So close to Times Square and 5th Ave. Would definitely consider staying here next time.

stayed over the Xmas holidays 2012. Nice, helpful staff. Clean room. Was on the small side, but i have stayed in smaller in NYC for more $$$. Bar right next door with food. Times square right around the corner!! Can't beat the location if you are a theater goer, most Broadway theaters one or two blocks away. Only complaint is that the free internet service was very spotty. Don't know if this was my iPad/iPhone problem or a prob with the WiFi. would definitely stay again.

Had a conference the week before Christmas and of course I stayed at the Mela on West 44th Street. The room was not the one I expected and I told the staff at the front desk. They immediately offered another room. It was delightful! I am always happy with this hotel; the price, the location and the friendly staff! Thank you again for a great trip.

Room Tip: Upper rooms are quieter if you would like less 'New York' noise!

Booked one night for a surprise trip for my fiancee and myself. The location was great (two blocks from Broadway and Times Square) but the room was very small and the TV did not work in our room. Even though the room was facing another building and Times Square, we slept quite well and the room was quiet. Also, the restaurant next door was excellent!

This was my second stay at Hotel Mela and it was just as perfect at the first. The girl at the front desk actually remembered me after 14 months! Everyone is friendly, accomidating, helpful and competent. The beds are perfectly comfortable and the rooms are spacious. It's half a block from Times Square but the room was quiet so my 4 year old and I slept soundly. I've stayed at many hotels in NYC but since finding Mela, this is the only one i will ever stay at again.

Hotel Mela is in a great location just a block from Times Square. Unfortunately, a problem developed with our room and when this couldn't be recitified, the staff were most helpful in transferring us to an upgraded room. The Bistro attached to the hotel was excellent.
