Stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon and we were extremelly disappointed...this is NOT a 4 star hotel. Location is perfect...30 second walk to time square but everything else was disappointing. We were upgraded when we go to the hotel...so goodness knows what we would have got if we hadnt been. The rooms are small and the...

This was our first visit to New York and the location was perfect for us. It was close to the theatre, we could walk to many of the sites we wanted to visit - Grand Central, Empire State Building,High Line,Central Park. We stayed on the 11th floor in an inward facing deluxe king room which was spacious enough and quiet....

I was in NYC for a conference but didn't want to pay the prices for the conference hotel. Hotel Mela fit my needs perfectly - a few minutes walking to Times Square, clean and comfortable, free wifi and most importantly affordable! It is also walking distance from Grand Central and even closer to the Times Square and Bryant Park subway...

Had a great stay at the hotel. Booked another hotel initially but was put off by the bad reviews and booked Hotel Mela via their Spring package. They upgraded me to the corner room = bigger room. Had good service from the reception staff to housekeeping to bellboy. Only problem is the shower was a bit hard to manipulate, hot...

I booked this hotel last minute for an overnight stay. The location was fantastic - half a block off of Broadway. We arrived early, checked in and left our bags with the bell hop. We were upgraded to a Deluxe room with a King size bed on the 8th floor. We returned to the room around 3:00 and, shortly after,...

Greatest service from any Hotel we have ever stayed in! The entire staff was great but a young man named Jonathan was the GREATEST! This young man offered to take our cart full of bags to our parking garage several blocks away! Little did we know that we had misplaced the parking ticket with the address (A MUST IN NYC)...

Me and my best friend stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. The best thing about this hotel is the location!! Is right around the corner of Times Square...right in the middle of everything! And although is right in the middle of everything, the rooms are nice and quiet at night :) It was lovely and clean, hotel staff were...

Guaranteed two double or one king bed, but only received a tiny room with one double bed. Ordered room service for breakfast one morning to be delivered at 8:30a. Did not receive a call from them even, and finally called to cancel order at 9:30a. Did not even get an apology.

Hotel Mela is in almost the perfect location for wandering around NYC. A block off of Time Square but feels very relaxed and out of the hub bub. Great bars and restaurants around the area; close to shopping. My room was great with real windows that open! The rooms are not large, but very clean, well appointed and very well...

I stayed in this hotel on a business trip, the location is fantastic, literally yards away from Times Square. The rooms are a good size with very comfy beds, the mini bar is best avoided-over 10 dollars for a 750ml of water! My room was right outside the air conditioning tower (room 207) and was rather noisy. However, the positives...

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.
