Nice hotel close to Times Square

Pros: Location was excellent for shopping, sightseeing, Central Park etc. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Wifi was good.
Cons: I think the breakfast option could be improved rather than just offering coffee and apples!
Location: Excellent location, close to all the major attractions without being in the very centre of it all.
Really nice hotel, we booked 2 queen sized beds in each room as travelling with teenagers. Rooms were a good size, plenty of clean towels and free toiletries. Both rooms were at the back of the hotel so the street noise was minimal which was great. We did have an air conditioning unit outside the window but the constant noise was quite soothing and did block out siren noise etc. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wifi was speedy which pleased the teenagers! Location was excellent, a short walk to Time Square and 5th Avenue etc. We didn't have the breakfast so can't comment on food in The Bistro next door. Overall I would recommend this hotel and would definitely use again if going to NYC

Excellent first experience of USA

This hotel is ideally placed to experience Manhattan. Half a block from Times Square, opposite the Belasco Theatre, surrounded by a range of good eating places at a wide range of prices we could not have been luckier in our choice. The room was comfortable and well appointed. The staff were friendly and helpful. What more can you ask?

Do not stay here

Rooms at the back of the hotel face an enclosed courtyard full of noisy machinery/fans/air con vents etc. And I mean NOISY. As in too loud to sleep even with a pillow over your head. We managed to get moved after the first night but we were put into the same side of the hotel again so refused that room and were put into a room at the front of the hotel on the street side - the staff protested it would be noisy here too and they get lots of complaints (they were very forthcoming with earplugs, they obviously get these type of complaints a lot), but it was much quieter than the other room. But the bed in this room was old and sagging and it felt like sleeping on a slope. And on the final morning we were up early to get to the airport and there was no hot water. It probably says a lot that when we handed the room key back when we were departing that we were not asked if we'd enjoyed our stay or if everything was ok - I guess they know not to ask that question. Oh and just in case you've not been put off this hotel already and are still reading... the cafe/restaurant next door is where you go for breakfast if you get a rate that includes it, the service here was very, very slow and the staff were sullen and disinterested.

Fantastic location, comfortable room

Hotel mela is fabulously located-about 30 seconds walk from Times Square and 2 minutes to nearest subway! Fantastic value for the location. Room was not huge but perfect for the two of us and being in New York we were hardly there. Also really quiet hotel despite the location. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, room cleaned daily. Tea, coffee, toiletries and a very well stocked mini bar! Room service is available via restaurant next door.

Nice Hotel Good Price

For the price and Location it is a lovely hotel. Be aware that the superior room with queen size bed doesnt have any space for a dressing table and wardrobe space is minimal bjut Wifi, Coffee making , good TV and clean modern bathroom are all nice touches. I was offered a larger room only to find that it had twin beds rather than one queen so declined the kind offer. The location was great and it was not really clear that the restaurant next door was part of the hotel as there is no internal access. Lifts are small and can be busy in the morning - it can be hard to get your suitcases in them. The staff were nice but not as overly friendly as I have found in other NY hotels I have stayed in. IF you want to be in centre of Broadway and dont want to pay the earth then this is a fine hotel to stay in.

Great spot for seeing the city and the sights

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mela, the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was lovely, although had no view but the position of the hotel was absolutely perfect - we were right on the edge of Times Square. We were near everything and had some good pubs and restaurants next door. Will certainly go back again.

Well located for your New York adventure

Had read previous comments about the size of the rooms, we had a superior room which was absolutely fine and accommodated us our luggage and numerous shopping bags adequately. The location was fantastic and staff friendly and efficient. Will definitely stay here again
