We used priceline to book this hotel. I was suprisingly pleased to see how nice the lobby, ammenities and rooms were. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We checked our bags in early because room check in was not until 3pm. They up-graded our room for free and it was a very spacious room. Everything was clean and...

Yay for free WiFi!!! This hotel gets extra Brownie Points from me for this!!! But don't expect a fantastic view. You are not here to sleep or loiter around in the room...you are literally half a block away from Times Square, although you wouldn't know it from the noise...apart from the odd siren, it genuinely didn't feel like we were...

On one of the most heavily hotel and university clubbed aves in the theatre district- here is a new little gem. I was in a king size room, so I can't report about other rooms. But the hotel service was extremely helpful, pleasant and accommodating. I had a medical issue in the middle of the night, nothing serious but I...

Great location / good value. Stayed for business a couple days and found the hotel, clean,comfortable and accommodating. A simple small boutique hotel practically without a lobby area. Gym is small, filled with tread mills, but there is a bench and dumb bells. Staff was friendly. Stayed in room 801, next to elevator and the window view was a brick...

Great room, friendly staff - the bell staff are super helpful. Stayed 2 nights and did the whole tourist thing. Very close to times square. Also love Saju - the calamari is awesome - good helping. Had a fab time.

Great room, friendly staff, very reasonably priced, excellent location! We looked at Stay which was sold out, compared "like" hotels and found Mela. I would definitely book here again. Right off times square, meaning close enough but also far enough away that you could stop in a few stores and restaurants before jumping into the chaos of times square.

Stayed for 2 nights recently on business. Was underwhelmed by the facilities. The 'lobby' is very small, there's no restaurant (they use the restaurant next door), the elevators are tiny and the gym was an airless windowless room. If you arrive arrive early they will not let you check in before 2, not so useful for a business traveler arriving...

Rooms were on the small side, but up to date, clean and the bathroom was functional modern. The hotel name means Apple in Italian, and of course the reception area had NYC red apples for guests!

I have now stayed at the Hotel Mela 3 different times in the past 2 years.

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.

“Ask for a street-side room if you like light and don't mind noise, interior room if you prefer a dark, quiet, almost tomb-like atmosphere.”
