Zentrales Hotel, direkt am Times Square.

Posted Aug 31, 2015
Das Hotel Mela Times Square liegt direkt im Zentrum des Geschehens. In der näheren Umgebung des Hotels liegen zahlreiche Restaurants, kleine Bars und Lebensmittelmärkte. Das Zimmer, welches in europäischen Ländern als klein betitelt werden kann, ist für amerikanische Verhältnisse sauber. Es kommt auh nicht immer auf die Größe an. Wenn man in New York City ist, begibt man sich nur zum schlafen ins Zimmer. Das Hotel liegt an der 44th Straße direkt im Dunstkreis vom Times Square und Hell's Kitchen. In Hell's Kitchen bekommt man die außergewöhnlichten Gerichte die man sich nie vorstellen konnte. Zudem ist Sonntags auf 8Av. in Höhe 44-52 Straße ein wunderbarer Markt der mit verschiedenen Ständen zum bummeln einlädt. Noch etwas wichtiges zu den Eigenarten des Hotels, bzw. zu der Zimmereinrichtung in amerikanischen Hotels. Alle Waren der Minibar, sowie das Wasser, die Chips und was sonst noch auf den Schränken verteilt steht, ist elektronisch so manipuliert, dass wenn man es nur zum anschauen anhebt, es schon in Rechnung gestellt wird. Sollte man (oder dessen Frau) seine Neugierde und den Drang alles anzufassen nicht zügeln können, kann man(n) direkt nachdem z.B. eine Flasche Wasser zum betrachten angehoben wurde, in die Lobby gehen, die übrigens 24 std. mit sehr freundlichen Mitarbeiter besetzt war, und sagen das es ein versehen war. Nun wird die Flasche Wasser für 10$ auch wieder von der Rechnung gestrichen.

Nonostante avessi una camera deluxe mi è stata assegnata una camera nel cavedio, quindi con vista muro di mattoni.. Altra pecca il condizionatore, rumoroso e posto al centro della camera.. La pulizia dell'hotel, così come la posizione, meritano un 10

Great hidden gem!

Posted Aug 28, 2015
Pros: Convenient, clean, comfortable. Rooms small but efficient.
Cons: Tubs in the bathrooms, or, at the least, a foot step in shower for women to put feel on when shaving legs! Also with there were a reward program.
Location: Everything! Theaters, restaurants, people watching.
I have stayed at the Mela many times and love it. It is a hidden gem of a boutique, midtown Manhattan hotel. I am in NYC for work a lot and while don't love Time Square due to the tourist congestion, it is convenient for my work. The Mela rooms are small (like all NYC hotels) but clean and efficient. The staff could not be nicer and more accommodating. Although I don't get membership points, The Mela is my favorite hotel in the city and I recommend to any traveler heading to New York.

Central hotel near to many landmarks

Posted Aug 27, 2015
Pros: Close approximation to Times Square / tour buses / subway
Cons: More storage space for clothes
Location: Times Square / Broadway / 42nd Street for shows / 5th Avenue - Belasco Theatre opposite entrance
The hotel is 2 minutes from Times Square but late night noise was not a problem. The room was clean & comfortable if a little small as we were moving onto a cruise so had several cases which could not be unpacked. The wardrobe could only hold a few items and nothing longer than a t-shirt as the safe takes up too much room so we lived out of suitcases. Staff were friendly & extremely helpful & overall this is a very good, conveniently placed hotel.

Bra hotell om man vill bo nära Times Square

Posted Aug 26, 2015
Pros: Läget
Cons: Jag saknade en lobby där man kan sitta o ta en öl o planera dagens aktiviteter. Käka frukost på hotellet kan ej rekommenderas, för dyrt.
Location: Läget bra o det finns ta mig tusan hur jävla mycket som helst att göra
Vänlig personal, helt ok rum, städningen snudd på en femma. Ligger bra om man vill bo nära Times Square men ändå slippa larmet o blinkandet därifrån.

Very central, on Times Square

Posted Aug 22, 2015
Hot shower for only 2 minutes then water goes cold. Even after complaining about it, still the same. A hot shower is an essential for me, without any restrictions on how long the shower should be.

At the center of Time square / the theater distric

Posted Aug 20, 2015
Pros: They have free newspapers available in the lobby.
Cons: They could have coffee and rolls in the morning available.
Location: The town never sleeps. Everything activity is near by.
The only problem is that they don't have breakfast in the morning.
