“Great stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

My mom and I stayed there this weekend and loved it! Clean room, attentive staff and great location! Being Just steps from Times Square made it all the better! We will be back to stay there in the Fall!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

For just one person, the room was comfortable enough size-wise... definitely compact and not spacious. Easy and close walk to food, shopping, and subway. The bed quality of the queen was fine and my room at the end of a hallway. Visiting in winter, there are often good deals that can be found via the various discount travel sites.

Room Tip: Request higher floor, away from elevator, at end of hall for quieter room.

Nothing to get too excited about, however I enjoyed my stay. Small room, however clean and reasonably well appointed.
Being given a room on the second floor, I did specifically request a "quiet" room and was given one at the back of the hotel.. no view, but totally silent.

Comfy bed, reasonably fast free WIFI.. would stay here again

Great location on 44th street, just off Times Square though for me it wasn't quite a 4*. Clean and tidy but low on amenities. Small room as can be expected with most hotels in NYC. Beingg near Times Square though, easy access to everything - Fifth Ave, theatres, Central Park, Rockefella, Empire State, etc

Room Tip: Wouldn't go for an inward facing room

Just checked out following my second stay at Hotel Mela. Great location. Room 809 is small and has no great view. However this is New York City so your out of the hotel all day. The beds are comfortable, the shower is great and towels soft and fluffy. Last time I stayed we had some road noise, no problem this time around.

Did have a problem when we checked in as there wasno room safe in our room, but the desk sorted that I. 10 minutes and one was screwed into the wardrobe.

Stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon and we were extremelly disappointed...this is NOT a 4 star hotel. Location is perfect...30 second walk to time square but everything else was disappointing. We were upgraded when we go to the hotel...so goodness knows what we would have got if we hadnt been. The rooms are small and the walls are thin. We had a small double bed when a hotel of this standard should have kings throughout. It was looking tatty round the edges and the lift was right next to our room causing noise.

The worst thing about this trip was when we were asleep from a long flight at 10:30pm. I could hear a knock but thought it was for another room, then I heard it again and it was def for our room, before I had a chance to tell myself partner the person proceeded to ENTER OUR ROOM. Luckily we had the chain on. My partner went to the door and it was a member of staff saying we had ordered ice to the room. We hadnt of course and he went away. We phoned down to reception who seemed less than bothered and just said they had made a note on the system. We got no apology from the manager or anyone else.

Overall there are better places to stay...we could have stayed at the Waldolf Astoria for around the same kind of money when we were looking at deals on-line but opted for this because of the location...but wish we had gone to the Waldolf.

This was our first visit to New York and the location was perfect for us. It was close to the theatre, we could walk to many of the sites we wanted to visit - Grand Central, Empire State Building,High Line,Central Park. We stayed on the 11th floor in an inward facing deluxe king room which was spacious enough and quiet. The bed and pillows were comfortable. Staff at the front desk were friendly. I would recommend to friends.
