Good location to Times Square. Lacking in everything else: No hot water for bathing; no ice machines for beverages; no mini-fridge; no microwave; no luggage rack; no extra towels (1 per person); no snack or beverage machines; no windows with natural light; no value for the price.

Fantastic price, amazing location, friendly staff. We would book again. Only downside was we booked a king room, when we checked in we were told they had over sold and could only have the queen room (which was a nice room). They gave us drinks vouchers for the bar next door and free breakfast vouchers for the bistro next door...

Hotel is well-located. Service is average. When you add all the newly billed services, fares are far from being competitive. As soon as you arrive they ask you to agree on two new mandatory services, you d be billed for. Despite i did not sign their document, they charged it to me: i felt ripped off and Would not advise...

A friend and I stayed at Hotel Mela after a business conference. Our stay was short, only a night, but the exceptional hospitality we received will live on as a cherished memory for years to come.

Stayed on weekend in a suite. Overall very good. Front desk staff very pleasant. A very nice sitting area. Nice tv in bedroom and sitting area. Restaurant associated with hotel next door was good. Had a nice breakfast. A bit odd that there was no refrigerator.

This hotel is perfect location for people who are doing the usual tourist things! Literally one street away from Times Square but without the noise. Rooms fairly small considering we booked the biggest room possible. Only thing I have knocked down to 4 stars is because we paid for resort fee as we included it which include gym facilities and...

I stayed at this hotel as part of a group. I had never heard of it before. I was pleasantly surprised at how clean it was. The rooms are small and have a European feel. However, I was alone so it was perfect for me. If my husband had been there, the bathroom would have been tight. It was extremely...

Not the 4 star hotel we were expecting, carpet in room tatty, peeling wall paper in bathroom, Wi Fi very slow, however close to Time Square and everything that you want in a fast short break to New York.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
