I would stay there again.

My GF and I went to NYC for a Thanksgiving getaway. The hotel was a perfect choice for us. Location, Location, Location. The room was very modern, comfortable and cute. The only thing I would change was the view. It just didn't exist. Aside from that we had a great stay. The staff was very helpful and nice. We loved touring Manhatten and this was the perfect location. A half block from Times Square. I would stay there again!

HUGE TIP! If you plan to go to a show in NYC. Buy your tickets at the TKtS downtown next to ground zero. You will save hours in line at the Times Square location. No one knows its there! We got Jersey Tickets for 40% off and it was the highlight of the trip.

Hotel Mela - Great Deal

We had a great stay at the Hotel Mela; even got an upgrade to a larger room. Location was perfect for a night at the theater. Great restaurant next door - Bistro - post theater nightcap and wonderful breakfast the next morning. Rooms are small, but more than adequate. Our view didn't have a view but didn't need one as we are regular visitors to the city

Great location near Times Square!

First night room was tiny- not what we booked, but were changed to a larger Queen bed room the next day. Much better. The hotel is well located, just a few blocks from Times Square. We walked to Grand Central Station and to Central Park, as the weather was beautiful. Near subway station and easy taxi service. Loved being near the theaters, where we enjoyed several shows and dinners. Would definitely consider staying here again. Overall, a very good experience.

A great place to stay!

The hotel was very nice. The room was very clean and comfortable. We felt very safe. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They gave us good advice on what to see and do. The booked us a greyline hop off and hop on bus tour. Gave us advice on a show to see. The also helped us get transportation to the airport. We really enjoyed our stay at The Mela.

A hotel for times' square

If you want access to Times Square or Broadway shows, this hotel is perfect. The only down side is the small rooms, which were clearly labeled as such in the advertisements.

The cafe just west (1/2 block) on 44th avenue from the hotel has most of the basics you might need (I needed nail clippers desperately) at very reasonable prices.

Great Location

While the room is small it was comfortable, the fitness center is lacking compared to others. The staff was professional yet not as personal as other hotels Ive stayed at.

Theater Weekend

We were in New York to see a Broadway show, so the location was absolutely perfect. The staff was very friendly and professional. Came in on the red eye so a little disappointed that they could not accommodate an early check-in. Room was great but overall could use a little cleaning (some mold in the shower, etc).
