We went there to start our Honeymoon, dont be fooled on arrival, prity ordinary, but inside everything first class. John Paul concierge could not do enough to help us, reception were more than helpful. Located 2 minutes from Times square and close to all the main attractions. Rooms were clean and amazingly noise free. Real quality beds that gave a... More

we were staying overnight to attend a party and needed a place to crash. When looking online we noticed that from the photos this hotel looked nice and the price was very good so we booked. Our usual place is INK 48, but this wasn't a romantic weekend, so we didn't want to spend $$$ on a hotel. This was... More

First impressions of this hotel were pretty ordinary- no frills, no glamour or zen atmosphere- but dont let that persuade you. The rooms were very very comfie! It feels clean and we had an awesome night sleep. The breakfast room is bright, airy and the buffet is awesome, healthy and smart! This hotel is smart and central and great value... More

If you are in NY to see shows, this place is in the heart of it all. The Lobby is small, but the plain feel is overcome by the warmth and professionalism of the staff. In every area this was a great group of people! My package included breakfast at the attached restaurant Saju Bistro - of which I give... More

Steps from Times Square, Hotel Mela is in a great spot. The room was extremely small - but clean and comfortable. The bathroom/shower were great and trendy. Staff was pleasant. The "bar" was a tad dusty.

I booked this property through Travelzoo and received an excellent rate of $129.00. The location is superb for theater and other midtown activities. We found the room small but the free upgrade added a small sitting room that gave us some extra room. All the staff was great especially so in allowing me to check in an hour early. I... More

I can't say enough. The location is prime for the theatre district & the subway. I was, at first, a little nervous, as our room was right next to the elevator.... but I never heard a thing, & the room turned out to be bigger than expected (by NYC standards). The bathroom was a great size and the soaps, etc... More

We stayed here from 18-22nd Jan 2013 and found the place to be amazing! I chose this hotel based on price & other people's reviews on here, boy then were NOT wrong! Firstly, I'd rung at Xmas just to double check my reservation, they asked why I was coming to NY & I explained it was for my wedding anniversary.... More

My second time in two years at Mela Hotel and everything was great. Spent 5 nights. Of course, we're in New York (small to mid-size rooms) but the room was very clean and the bed very confortable. Only small problem, sometimes hot water comes only after 2-3 minutes in the shower, but I was at the 16th floor, so very... More

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.
