Not the type of hotel I am use too. I was not paying so no complaints. Ca Led ahead and discovered the typical new York issues are here although the website photos may suggest otherwise. Rooms are tiny, many have interior (brick) views. The lovely photos on the website is the presidential suite only. Reservations confirmed many people are surprised...

Mela is a functional hotel - its purpose is attend your travel needs - nothing less, nothing more. The room was the right size for someone that wants to enjoy NYC and just want to sleep in a clean room and a good bed, after exploring the city. If you want to stay at the hotel, this is not a...

We stayed here for 6 nights recently. The hotel itself is very well located, literally only steps from times Square, which is very handy for shows, night-life etc. We checked in very late on Friday night and when we got to our room i couldn't find the safe. I thought this was just because I was tired but a full...

Great location to see everything. The room was very clean with very comfortable bed. The staff was very friendly. I had a very good time in New York and would stay at this hotel again. The wireless internet was not strong enough and hope they get a better system. They did offer to move us closer to the modem but...

I can't believe I have seen reviews moaning about the room sizes!! You're in New York all you need is a bed and a shower!

This boutique hotel is located in the heart of midtown...literally steps from Times Square. Lobby is small and not a very welcoming space. The rooms are basic and showing some minor wear. Our carpet was not vacuumed regularly and hairs were consistently left behind in the bathroom despite daily visits by the cleaning staff. Also, the minibar in the room...

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here now, and to be honest I can't see us staying anywhere else in Manhattan! The location is just steps away from Times Square, but in a really quiet spot. The rooms are spotless and very modern, staff friendly and helpful. The only thing I would say is be careful what you...

This hotel is a great value and is in a wonderful location! So close to Times Square without the big pricetag that usually comes along with that location. Rooms are small, but for a weekend trip where all you need to do is sleep, it's perfect! Very clean and trendy decor. The front desk staff could be a little more...

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.
