"Great Hotel, Great Location"
Excellent location for Times Square, Theatre District, great restaurants (Carmine's, Juniors Cheesecake umm good). Check in was very simple, held our luggage as we arrived early, also great bellhop. The lady at the concierge desk did not want to be there, not pleasant to guest or other staff. Room was small, very clean, great amenities ie, soap, shampoo, […] and lotion. Beds very comfortable, but don't even touch anything in mini bar as you will be charged (outrageous prices $10.50 for a bottle of water, $7.50 for mm's). I plan on making this my regular hotel on future visits. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to theaters and times square"
Small but just what is needed. The heat/ac unit is quiet and does not put you through the typical roast/freeze cycle of most hotel units. My room was quiet. Room service is reasonable and the food was delivered on time, warm and delicious. Location is right in the middle of everything.Genuine Expedia guest review

good job!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In the heart of the action in Times Square"
I must admit I was a little shocked when I opened the door to our room. I have had this experience in New York before...that moment when you wonder, "where's the rest of the room?" This is New York and the rooms are small. I figure there was about 20" clearance between the swing of the door (in) and the foot of the bed. The bathroom was completely […] redone and beautiful with a big walk in shower. As nice a bathroom as anywhere I've been, maybe nicer. There is no desk or chair in the room. Definitely not like your typical suburban small town hotel. If you want to be in Times Square and the Theater district, this place is really great, and a great value. We go to New York often and tend to stay away from the touristy places. This time we decided it would be fun to be tourists during the Christmas season. We walked to Theater, dinner, even walked to an from Penn Station. I'm not sure I'd stay in Times Square again, but if I did, I'd go back to the Hotel Mela. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

"Exceptionally close to Broadway shows."
Check in was effortless. Room was tiny but we were not in it much anyway. Quick to offer any assistance as needed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean but tiny room."
Clean and quiet but room was tiny! At $400+, I expected a little more. No furniture in the room,only a bed and a mini bar...not even a chair. Oh well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Stay at Mela hotel"
GreatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Mela in NYC's Theater District"
The stay itself was great overall we paid around $220.00 for one night with a queen size bed on hotels.com. Our only two small complaints were the room was very small and we were constantly tripping over our suitcases, and of course the view out our window was an alley way. The fact that it is in the theater district and our show was two blocks away […] made it totally worth it to stay there. The French restaurant next door was superb and I would recommend trying it.

"Small room but clean and great location."
Great location and clean room with great service. Not really suitable fur business if you need large work area and desk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect , nice hotel , in the right location!"
Didn't stay that long , but , a great hotel, right in the middle of a great area!Genuine Expedia guest review
Great staff. Room was the size of a closet. Could barely walk around the room, especially with one suitcase on the floor because there was no where else to put it. Heat was very noisy, view was creepy. For the price you can get something else with more adequate space. Would not stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location was excellent right in the heart of the fun!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great Boutique Hotel!"
The hotel is a perfect location in Midtown. It is extremely nice with warm, clean and a bit larger rooms. The staff is delightful and always pleasant to the guests.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel right near Times Square"
The staff are always friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfy, what more could you ask!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in convenient location"
Hotel is located in midtown Manhattan in the Theater District, very close to Times Square. It's a short walk to the subways, the shows, Bryant Park, Rockefeller Center, Lincoln Center, Hell's Kitchen. However, because it is close to all these tourist sights, noise level can be high outside the hotel if you get a room that is facing 44th street. Ear […] plugs cut down the noise, so not a problem. Our room was small, but only used it to sleep so again, not a problem. Overall, for the price and location, Hotel Mela would be an excellent choice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location! We arrived several hrs before check in time and they let us check In right away.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly clean hotel close to Times Square"
Love location and staff. This was my 2nd stay at Mela.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice home base."
The Mela Hotel was perfect for our weekend stay in New York City. The subway is right around the corner, our theatres were well within walking distance, and Times Square is close enough to crawl to, yet just far enough away to keep the sounds of the crowd down. The room was far larger than many offered in this district and the local restaurants were […] very nice, as well. Staff is extremely pleasant and helpful...thank you for your hospitality!

"New York 2014"
I love this hotel. The location is awesome. Right in the center of Times Square. The staff is super friendly and professional. The room was clean and comfortable. The bistro had great food.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location and in New York is a must."
Great location, in the heart of Broadway, the Belasco theater across the street!. We love to go to the theater and for us walking distance to the main theatres is a huge plus. The room very small, but witth enough space to store your things, good illumination. The central heating a tad too noisy, the rooms are cleaned late . Could be a little better, […] but the location forgives all the minor inconveniences. Great restaurants in the same block. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel in Times Square"
Staff was courteous, room was clean, and quiet. Convenient to everything in Times Square area. This is the second time we stayed here and plan to go back again. Thet even upgraded our room to one with a little sitting area. The mini bar started making noises during the night was the only negative.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My trip to New York"
I was in New York on business and staid at this hotel. The staff were very helpful and the rooms were stylishly decorated and very clean and comfortable. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"In Times Square"
In town for museums and a show. Being in Times Square was great for the show, but traffic congestion makes it difficult to get around otherwise. The staff was great, room comfortable and clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the only reason i am not giving a 4star overall is because the AC in my room was making so much noise and it kept me awake most of the night. Everytime it would make a "kluck" sound, i would awaken disturbed. I've stayed in this hotel many times for business and pleasure and usally i am always satisfied, I guess i got the "bad" room this week.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Short over night trip to see family who were also visiting from out of town. Great location. Room was perfectly fine and clean. Parking garage next door was very convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"location,location, and location."
stayed for the location and price. You can walk close to any tourist attraction. the service was exceptional. i highly reccommend to return in the same hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
all too small. very disappointing for $450/night. Rooms small, no breakfast included, gym small..Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel very near Times Square"
Room was a bit small as was the bed. A nice hotel but you pay a premium to be by Times Square.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location helpful Staff"
We were upgraded at check in to a junior suite. Reception staff were very pleasant and helpful throughout our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better Alternatives Available"
Room was beyond tiny. I was supposed to have a king bed - instead, it was a double. Quality of the bed was terrible. Staff was friendly but completely lacked knowledge about the surrounding area. OK for the tourist but horrible for a business traveler. I do not anticipate ever returning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Fabulous location, friendly staff !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, great service, great experience!"
This hotel had great service. I felt like we were really taken care of. Anytime we called the front desk, our requests were taken care of surprising very quickly. The room was extremely small, but we expected that. It was also very quiet. We didnt hear any outside street noise at all! It looked like it had recently been updated and was very clean. And […] the location was perfect! walking distance to the theatre, Times Square, 5th Ave, Rockafeller Plaza, and most importantly, the subway! We found it to be convenient to everything we wanted to do. I would stay here again, and refer all my friends! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"very good value in an expensive city"
smallish clean updated hotel near Times Square, the staff was helpful and attentive, good valueGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is great. The Bistro next to it very nice. The room layout was terrible. The A/C smell was horrendous. The night stands and alarm clock were full of dust. I requested another room and it was not given to me. The pillow covers smelled like if they had been used. There were somebody else's hair on the sheets. They offered to change the bed […] sheets and pillow covers and no one came to do it. Defintely not a 4 star hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is located in the heart of Times Square. Walking distance (if you like to walk) from a lot of places. Room was small but very clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay at Hotel Mela again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Small but nice"
The hotel was clean and relatively comfortable but it was the smallest room I've had in NYC. The price was reasonable but I would have appreciated a desk and chair which this room did not have. I would have gladly given up the mini bar to make room for a small desk. It was also quite loud both outside and with the doors closing and people moving about […] in the hallway.

"The New York Experience !"
Always a pleasure to visit NYC and staying at a hotel that meets or exceeds your expectiations make it even better. I can say the hotel was located in one of the best parts of the city if you like hustle and bustle. It has a great restuarant next door associated with the hotel. Food and staff were better then the hotel staff. (Saju) ;-) So, even if […] you aren't staying at the Hotel Mela, go to the restaurant next door! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
