Very Good 8.0
Quick Trip to NYC
I am not a traveler who requires a lot of attention. If you don't mind being on your own, then the Melva is good for you. The managers responded to emails very quickly. It's located in a very quiet area of Harlem. It is walking distance from two subways stations (116, 125). It is also walking distance to Central Park, the Apollo Theater and Sylvia's restaurant.

Melva Inn, an Ideal Place
My stay at Melva Inn was excellent! I was not sure about what to expect. It turned out to be one of the best decision I made. The location is ideal for getting around. My daughter and I felt safe and the distant to Columbia University and back is ideal. The location provided access to public transportation, lots of great restaurants & family friendly activities. Wished there was a microwave.

Simple, Affordable, Comfortable
This is an affordable, SIMPLE, comfortable place to stay. This is not a four start hotel or B & B. But I found it to be just as it is advertised. It was very clean. The bed was super comfortable. The bathroom had everything we all need. The room was spacious. The innkeeper was very quick to respond when I had a question. It is quiet (rare for NYC). I felt safe and walked so some great restaurants. I was there on business and my conference was a one mile walk so it was convenient for me. I love Harlem!
