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.

The hotel is well situated if you plan to take in some Broadway shows. We walked to both the Richard Rogers and Eugene O'Neill theatres in just a few minutes. The Belasco Theatre is directly across the street- we watched Sally Field sign autographs from our window. Parking is located within a hundred feet, or so, from the entrance to...

Visited this lovely hotel in early December 2016. Just off Times Square but you pay a lot less than some of the hotels nearby and this little gem is every bit as good. Hotel is very clean and not noisy at all. Very helpful staff. Lots of great eating places very close to hotel and very reasonable prices considering you...

When you travel to New York you expect world-class theater, gourmet restaurants and around-the-clock entertainment but do you expect to be treated like family by a hotel? The answer is typically 'no.' And the exception is Mid Town's Hotel Mela situated in the middle of the theater district. The price is right and the staff - John, JP and Christian...

Location is just off times square down from the good morning America studio. The hotel décor is ok, maybe could do with a little updating in the corridors, room was always nice and clean. Bad points is that it was very noisy and the windows had little effect on keeping the noise out so if you are a light sleeper...

If you're a tourist, this is the place to be. Right in Times Square, in the middle of Broadway's Theaters. Great staff, excellent clean rooms. Been there once, this was the second time, and definitely going back.

I don't often write reviews but thought this was worth doing. We were very pleased with the hotel it did everything we wanted and more. It is situated minutes from Time Square and meant we could come back to the hotel to drop bags or coats and then head out again. We did look at cheaper options further out in...

Very near to Times Square. The hotel is good and all things which you may not like will get disappeared due to its location. The staff is good. There are maps available at the lobby which you can make use of.

So, I was among the first guests to stay at this hotel, when it opened back in 2007. (Seriously - I reviewed it 10 years ago...search my reviews!) Back then the Hotel Mela was fresh, stylish, welcoming, friendly, well located, yada yada. Today - it is well located. On this visit, I prepaid for two nights' stay - but surprise!...

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.
