The hotel staff were polite and friendly. The room was clean and had good a/c. Wifi was non existent in room on 4th floor however pretty good when used from the business centre. I wouldnt hesitate to use this hotel again if I return to NY.

We stayed here for seven nights in August 2016. The location is perfect as it is on Times Square and two blocks from a subway station. If you're looking for views, probably not the best - as we were facing the wall of the building next door. However, the room was clean and comfortable. Our one complaint is that since... More

I will start with the few positives I think this hotel has. Location is good if you want to be close to the hustle and bustle of Times Square, however we personally wouldn’t go back to this area it was just too busy and noisy. The rooms were cleaned daily and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. However,... More

Ok, back to the good news: this hotel is perfectly situated if your plans include any theater or dining in the Broadway/Times Square area. Caveat: with the volume of traffic and city construction be prepared for a lot of walking. Or if you need to take a cab downtown walk to Sixth Avenue and 41st or 44th and Sixth for... More

We stayed here in August 2016, on the 10th floor. Hotel Mela is in the perfect location - close to Times Square, but not close enough to be overwhelmed by the lights and crowds. Grand Central Station is just down the street, and tourist spots like Bryant Park, Madison Square Garden, and NY Public Library are just short walks away.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and had a wonderful stay. The room was clean and and shower was spacious. Perfect to relax after a long day exploring. Fantastic location right in the heart of the city. Only thing the air con unit outside was noisy but that didn't bother us.

We recently decided we wanted to take a long weekend in New York City to see Les Miserable before it ends in September. After searching online at various hotels we came across Hotel Mela. The price seemed fair considering it was just a little over a block from Times Square and very close to the theater district. We decided to... More

Small but clean. Staff was friendly, and helpful. Someone was always available for us. Great location to everything around Times Square. Parking pricey, but you can park your own car in the Garage next to hotel.

Simple elegance so as a business traveler who has allergies to dust and down feathers, it was great to have a hotel without carpeting in the rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful in offering directions. Room was comfortable and the rooms are nice size for NYC. Even had a little patio outside the room. Would stay again

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.
