Hotel Mela Times Square

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location, near subway. Jonathan at the front desk was great!

Overall great hotel. Great location and good value for your money. I would definately stay here again and I highly recommend it.

5 star hotel boutique style very well kept rooms Very clean Very modern

For vacation travel this hotel would be just fine - great location at a reasonable price. But as a business traveler I found it worn and wanting. The room was small and dreary, not a place you’d want to work in after a day of meetings, etc.

Perfect hotel. Right in the middle of everything you could possibly want to do. Rooms are kinda small but great for two.

We stayed at Hotel Mela during NYE this year. A great stay for the price and so close to the Times Square location. The staff allowed us to check in early and the room was perfect for what we needed. Clean and nice amenities. The elevators we're tiny but there were 3 and all in working condition so we had maybe 1 min max wait, even including returning to the hotel after the ball drop. I wish there was an exhaust fan in the bathroom but other than that our stay was great. We'd stay again!!!

comfortable and good location, unfo no hot water for a couple of days

Aside from the location, did not like much about this hotel. The walls were extremely dirty and there was dust in certain places. Lobby was a bit dark for my liking.

It was right on Times Square and extremely close to everything. It was in the Theater district so we only had to walk 3 minutes to get to the Minksoff theater which is where we went to see Lion King. Check in and check out were extremely fast thanks to Orbitz. We didn’t use the internet or any of the facilities because we were only in the room to sleep, we stayed out and about in Times Square. Didn’t care for how tiny the elevators were but I guess that’s New York life. The elevators also took FOREVER. I also didn’t like how I had to leave a sign telling the cleaning crew to wash the tub. Other than that it was a pretty good stay.

Staff hotel were the best and it is in a great location.

I was unsure what to expect but can say that we were quite pleased with our stay. We had delayed flights and ended up arriving at 2:30 am. There was a staff member there to greet us and help us find much needed food. The room was small but clean, quiet, and withing walking distance to everything we needed. I would recommend Hotel Mela and will likely choose to stay there again.

The hotel is small: small rooms, small lobby, small elevators - it looks and feels more like a hotel in Paris than NYC. The room was clean and nice - we were literally on top of a couple of Broadway theaters so the noise is incessant. Too expensive for what was being offered.

We were told upon arrival about the daily"Facility Fee" which included coffee and fruit, etc. in the lobby each morning. We stayed two nights, and they never did have coffe and fruit.

Right in the heart of the theater district, just a half-block from Times Square. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room wasn't huge, but it's New York, so that's what you'd expect.

Muy buen hotel y excelente ubicación, muy cerca a Times Square y a varias estaciones de metro.....................

They do additional charges that do not tell you the hour of the reservation as 32.66 dlls daily from the resort, I talked to a hotel manager and they did not refund me. I also commented that at the time of check in I informed the employee that I attended that everything was already prepaid and that if I did not consume anything from the hotel I would not be charged which was a lie !!

Great location for business, touring, and shows. Bellman was great and helped us get a cab to the airport. Bed was sloped and the shower temperature control was difficult to manage. It was either scalding or not enough water. Also a strangely short bed. The hotel is not tall enough to get away from the street noise, but it was particularly bad during our stay. Construction across the street all night made it worse than normal NY noise levels. Try to get away from the street if you can. When booking through online you get charged $30 extra per night for wifi and exercise room access. This was disclosed online, but it's still annoying.

This place doesn't have a huge fancy lobby, but its location makes it a good choice for the price.

The hotel served my purposes. Close to the tourist areas and shows. Beds are comfortable. Like all NYC rooms - small bathrooms and living space, but you're not in NYC for your hotel room. No bathroom in the lobby that I could see. The price was just under $1,000 for 3 nights. That's a good price for clean/decent rooms in NYC.

Friendly staff. Close to everything. Very clean room. Love the comfortable bed. Well lit bathroom.
