We really liked Hotel Mela. Stayed on 7/28/16 for family get together in the city. We, my wife and I, stayed in room 414 which completely floored us when entering it. A large, for NYC srandards, street front living space with 2 chairs, pull-out sofa, wall mounted flat screen tv, closet with robe, iron and board, espresso maker, fridge with... More

It's in time square, close to Broadway,very convenient. The room is clean and good services. We rated 4 star due to a slight plumbing issues and hot water comes slow. Overall it's great place to stay.

Two complaints. The shower has a glass wall on one side that you have to reach around and into to turn on the water. There is no way to avoid getting wet before you actually step inside. The second complaint is that the tv is pretty far away from the bed hung on the wall.But the room was clean. Bed... More

Our first room on 11th floor was small and very noisy from external Air Conditioner. The Hotel upgraded us for our next 3 nights to an excellent Executive room. Huge bed; well furnished. Only one minute walk from Times Square. Small unimposing reception area. Reception staff varied from 'disinterested' to 'most helpful. Adjacent ground floor Bistro restaurant served excellent Rabbit... More

I stayed here a couple of nights on business. I stay in lots of hotels, and don't generally complain about the staff, but I found this front desk staff less than helpful.

I rarely take the time to write a negative review. I usually only write positive ones, but this was such a poor experience, I cannot even get it all in one review. Highlights: this, it is NOT a 4 star hotel, it is more like a 2.5. The room was so small, it only fit a bed and that was... More

I got upgraded to the penthouse during my stay at Hotel Mela. The room was huge and the bathrooms were nice however everything else was very tired. The couch fabric was frayed and old.

Located in the heart of Manhattan, 2 min. away from Times Square and Bryant park, this hotel is perfect to discover NY. Subway is just around the corner and many interesting sites can be reached by walking less than 15 min. Very friendly staff. Room well equipped with a modern design.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
