Economical & great location”
This is an “efficiency” hotel; rooms are small (reminds me of Parisian Hotels, in this regard); however, they are clean, decent bathroom, towels, etc. Staff, including house-keeping, very nice and helpful. No lobby to speak of, good bars, theaters, restaurants and subway within 1-2 blocks, so the location is terrific. If room had been bigger, with a comfortable chair to lounge in, it would get more stars. But perhaps my “fault” for not springing for spending more $.

Great stay; great staff ”
Efficient friendly check in. Went up to room and immediately found that A/C not working so called front desk. Clerk very apologetic and asked if he could send serviceman up. He was there in 5 minutes, declared the unit to be “frozen” and reported to desk. He said it would take a while to repair and would I prefer another room. I agreed and was immediately given a large beautiful suite. The whole process took about 10 minutes. What could have been a nightmare was resolved in the best possible way. Stayed 5 nights and room cleaned immaculately each day. Good bistro restaurant attached to hotel and within walking distance of a myriad of attractions, stores, and restaurants. Fitness facility okay but not great. Great value for the money.

Hotel in a Great Location!”
It's only a few steps to the busiest street in New York!
The hotel location is virtually steps away from the busiest street in New York City and the broadway theatres are just 5-10 minutes away. Hotel took note of my request to be placed in a quiet room and although there was no view, I had a comfortable sleep. Hotel Mela also accepts online shopping on your behalf before you arrive in NYC and that totally rocks! Love the H2O toiletries provided in the bathroom too.

This hotel is nice and clean. Actually, there is the best location in center of Manhattan because only less than 50 meters you can enjoy the time square that really and very close to the hotel. Even though the room size a bit small but all other thing is very very good and absolutely if I gotta visit by Manhattan next time, I will be surely consider this hotel for staying again.

Perfect for the Broadway fan”
The location cannot be beat. Was choosing between this hotel or another cheaper hotel but with bigger rooms that's a bit further away. So glad I chose this hotel as the convenience of walking to and from any Broadway show cannot be beat. At the end of the street is a big Sephora, Gap, Old Navy, H&M so it's easy to shop and drop at the hotel. Chose a big room which turns out to be an inside room with no outside windows, so the expensive rooms don't always mean they will get the sunlight so use the in room alarm clock as it does stay dark in the room.

Pleasant Surprise”
Best feature: Location! Just a few steps from TKTS. Just on the next street from the Broadway show we wanted to see (Beautiful). Other Pluses: 1. Clean rooms; clean sheets 2. Well-appointed bathroom, with complete toiletries 3. Good front office service. Very helpful and they see to it that they address all your concerns. Some minuses: 1. Fixed facilities fee that you have to pay for at the hotel outside of what you had already paid for upon booking. This will cover for your use of internet, phone for international and local calls, etc. If this is a fixed cost, I am not sure why they do not include this in their hotel rates. So do not be deceived by the booking rate you paid for. There is an additional fixed fee you will need to pay for upon checking out. 2. Quite unfortunately, their plumbing system had issues on our second day. However, they resolved the issues pretty quickly and waived our facilities fee as compensation.

Great location, good value, friendly helpful staff, would definitely stay again ”
This hotel is right in the middle of everything we wanted to see and by times square! We walked everywhere and even when we went Manhattan the subway is right around the corner! It wasn't noisy at night (apart from a few people slamming doors) and the bed was so comfy! Had tea/coffee maker, hairdryer, cleaner came in every day put fresh towels if you needed them. We were at the back of hotel so no view and pretty dark but if your only using it for somewhere to sleep then you won't be disappointed! The receptionist even helped us order a pizza to our room! Highly recommend staying here. We stayed here 5 nights and couldn't fault a thing!

Over priced hotel for the quality of service provided”
Checked in late night in a freezing day in New York. Was asked to pay an additional $30/day facility fee upon check in (on Agoda only mentioned a service fee $30, which looks like an one-time charge), which makes the price of per night stay increased 7%. Front desk person gave me a room card, however, when I tried to enter, room was locked from inside and someone creamed inside - oops, they gave me wrong room card, which I had to re-issue another room card at 2am to enter my room. During peak hour, 1 out of 3 elevator is always kept for room cleaning and servicing use, have to wait for an elevator for 2-3 minutes... The room itself is somehow clean, but very poor sound insulation, I can hear people walking, talking outside of room door all night. I wouldn't recommend this hotel at all. Only benefit of this hotel is location - right at the corner of time square, 5 mins walk to 42nd St. subway station.

Used to be good ”
Having stayed in Mela for years and recommended it to friends, I am disappointed with this stay in October 2016. Many problems. Weak wifi on higher floors. The walls of the hotel so thin that I could hear the next guest snore at night, and other very personal sounds. Housekeeping didn't replace bathroom supplies every day unless asked. Not annoyingly, apart from the room fee I was charged "a mandatory Amenities fee" of 25 dollars per night -- this was never clear to me in Agoda booking and I showed them the app too. To which the guy at the counter asked me to email him later and he would do anything -- seriously? Why would a traveler fuss around with this? The policy is unclear and stupid. Never again in this hotel. Despite convenience of location. Many other options.

Mid town location in midtown. This a perfectly placed hotel to stay close to times square. The lobby is small and rooms were small but good enough. The staff was excellent and very accommodating. They stored our luggage when we arrived early and again after we checked out so we could go to a show. Nice staff.

The strength of this hotel is the location. Very near Times Square, yet in a quite area. Apart from location, the hotel is nothing special. My room was tiny. I spent 7 nights and they never changed bed-linen (there was a recognizable mark). The internet connection was glitchy. Overall the hotel is rather run down.

Pleasantly surprised by Hotel Mela. It's well located to Times Square and the theatre district. Great bars and restaurants nearby and close to Bryant Park or Rockefeller Center subway stations. The room was good, clean, modern and had everything a leisure or business traveller needs. This was a great find and very good value for money. We would definitely stay again.
