Helpful staff

The Mela Hotel was very close to Times Square and lots of great dining. We were 1/2 block from either 6th or 7th Av. and just stepped that short distance to a huge choice of restaurants. The bed was extremely comfortable, great mattress and linens. When we were leaving the staff even sent a young man to walk with us the half block to catch a cab on 6th Avenue. Totally unexpected and way above the call of duty. We ordered breakfast in the next morning and it was delivered on time, hot and tasty. The only reason for the somewhat satisfied on fitness is because we didn't use the facilities, but, it looked nice in passing.

Surprising gem

First time at this hotel. Rooms are a bit small but very modern, clean and comfortable. The best thing is the staff. They were the most friendly and accommodating hotel staff I have encountered in about 50 trips to NYC.

Time Square Perfection

We needed to be in Time Square and this was the perfect place at the right price. Not a big monolithic hotel. Simple but complete, it had everything we needed and the staff were wonderful.

Ideal Location

Hotel Mela is definitely a must when travelling to New York, not only are you less than a 5 minute walk to Times Square,it is also in walking distance of 5th Ave too. The rooms are spotless and so comfortable, home from home. Highly recommend people to stay in this hotel.

Loved it!!

If you come to NYC to be close to Times Square, and the Theatre District and yet don't want to spend an arm and a leg on a hotel, this is the place!! The room and bathrooms clean. Staff...GREAT!! The conceirge is John Paul and he found us restaurants, transportation, and places to make certain to see. There may be someone who is just as good, but you'd be hard pressed to find anyone better. Would come back to this hotel in a NY minute. Maybe even faster.

Beautiful Rooms

Hotel Mela, NEW YORK, NY is right in the theatre district, but far enough from Times Square to be NYC quiet. The room was small and intimate with beautiful but simple modern decor. The bathroom was spotless and bright with great fixtures and no sign of wear and tear. Le Madeleine, MOMA, Stage Deli, Carnegie Hall, et al. were all within walking distance. I'd go back in a minute for a vacation -- not just a business trip.

Wonderful three day getaway

My boyfriend and I stayed two nights at Hotel Mela and LOVED it! We will definitely stay there again! The location was absolutely perfect - practically right in the heart of Times Square. Staff was very nice and helpful. The room itself was not as small as I was expecting for a hotel in NYC. Very clean and classy. Definitely a great value!
