Check in was easy but when I got to the room I noticed it was a full size bed even though I paid for the queen size. Had to go back down to the lobby to get my room switched. New room was even smaller because of the bigger bed. Third floor room was too close to the street and...

We stayed here on Super Bowl weekend for a bit over 100$ a night! Moreover, the management upgraded us for free to a King sized bed. Given the price, the friendly service, the location right by Times Square, and the wonderful bistro next door, we simply could not have had a better experience.

Perfect stay at the Hotel Mela from arrival to departure. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, friendly, helpful and chatty. I can't find fault...! The location is central to everything you could possibly want to get to.. I can't recommend staying at the Hotel Mela enough, go stay & enjoy it!!

Took a weekend trip with my girlfriend. John Paul helped make it a memorable trip with his resturant suggestions and helping to make reservations. He arranged for chocolate covered strawberries to be in the room at our arrival to suprise her. Then night number two there were rose petals throughout the room when we got back from dinner and a...

Total charges do not include hotel facility fee shown in fine print currently at $27.55 per room per night. No ice machine but it was obtained upon my request, elevator door is only the width of a normal doorway so this could be an issue for overweight patrons (over 300 lbs). Otherwise clean and in an excellent location.

We stayed here for 4 nights on our first trip to NYC It's a great central location to pretty much everywhere and certainly within walking distance to a lot of the top sights.

My husband and I returned to the Hotel Mela for a weekend of fun in the city. We can't say enough about this place. The location is superb, a few steps from Times Square, the Tickets booth and all the theaters. There are many great restaurants and pubs in the area. The room rates are so reasonable.

We couldn't find it so we called and the man at the desk told us exactly where they were and that the parking lot they used was adjacent to the hotel.(We are directionally challenged and we got there!)

Location was amazing - just off Times Square, a stones throw from all of the action. Room was pretty tiny as I would have expected in NY (this is probably the smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in, to the point that there was no space to open a suitcase on the floor.) Didn't bother us as we were there...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
