                        Location

                        Window didn't fully close, was very noisy, chilly and smelly from nearby restaurants. Room was shabby in need of refurbishment. Concierge although helpful misled us in reference to our journey to airport. We wanted a taxi as it was a very early start 5am and he recommended booking a "car" because a taxi he said would cost more in tolls and traffic would be significant enough to cost us a lot on the meter. We trusted he knew better so booked the car which turned out to be a limo. None of the toll roads were open at this time of the morning and there was no traffic at all. A journey he reckoned would take an hour took 25mins. So best part of 100 dollars later we felt ripped off.

                        First thing about this hotel is the localisation.....it's in the midway to most of the places we wanted to see. It's really nice that there are couple of bars near, so that you can relax after whole day of sightseeing. If you're not about that, then silence is what you get - even tough it's in the centre it's cosy. The stuff is really helpful and customer-orientated.

                        The room and bathroom were small, but that wasn't disturbing for us....

                        The location was fabulous. It was a half a block off of time square.

                        The front lobby staff was slow. There was a homeless individual sleeping in the business center on Saturday morning.

                        Hotel Mela is situated in a great location right next to Times Square. The hotel is clean and the staff are helpful. It is very much a place where everyone gets on with what they're doing, there is no restaurant and no real central area (except for the small lobby), but that was perfect for us. Ask the guy/girl nearest the window (opposite reception) for recommendations for dinner/bars etc.

                        As apparently is the case with a lot of hotels in New York, our room was quite small - and it was a "Superior Room". We were out and about pretty much all the time so that wasn't a problem for us.

                        The hotel was very close to Times Square and an excellent location to start seeing the sights instantly. The hotel has a lovely large queen size bed with good quality bedding and soft pillows. The TV had a good picture, the bathroom was an excellent size with complimentary toiletries of SPA quality. There was a free safe which we put to good use and kept all our belongs, money, jewellery etc in. Air conditioning was excellent. At the reception desk be sure to help yourself to a free apple available to all. Not much fruit is available in NY so was a very welcome snack when out and about.

                        We took other advise and didn't touch the fridge, the cost of the drinks and refreshments were extortionate, we never had any surprises added to our bill at the end of the holiday. Towels was soft but a little too small, more like a hand towels but we managed. The coffee dispenser was a bit complicated so we never bothered to use it. We didn't have any natural light in our room and couldn't really tell if it was day or night time. The lighting was poor in the main room but good in the bathroom. We upgraded to a deluxe room, I expected to be able to see some daylight.

                        Location was convenient and the room was clean, stylish and larger than I had expected for that area of NY.

                        My room was great but others I had traveled with who had rooms on floors 2-6 had smaller more cramped rooms and the noise level was really bad on those lower floors.

                        comfortable and well designed room, but ugly view outside. Noisy airconditioner out of window.

                        included breakfast

                        Your facilities are extremely small for the price you charge. I didn't like the following: 1) hard to move around in the room; 2) no fan available in the bathroom; 3) floor at the halls should changed to make it more elegant; 4) Different rates and layouts should be explained to make mistakes in terms of rates.

                        Very clean and nicely decorted. Your staff has been excellent. I can name John as my point of contact. He was very nice and helpful. His cheerfulness and help is much appreciated.

                        We stayed in a south facing room so it was very quiet. The location of the hotel was perfect, being in midtown and within a few blocks of every subway line. Walking out the hotel and seeing the Chrysler and Empire State building was also nice.

                        Clean. Close to attractions. Priced right. They held on to our baggage after check out so we could get a bite to eat and do a little more site seeing before we left.

                        The airconditioner was a little noisy. Room bar was confusing at first. Make sure you don't touch anything in that refrigerator cause everything has electronic sensors and you will be charged for removing them even if you replace them. A little pricey for those items.

                        Our interaction with Christian and location were best attributes.

                        Room size and no table and chair in room. Hardly "superior".

                        The Spa products, some of the reception staff, but essentially fixed mind set.

                        I had four different rooms. Either not clean, too small, or next to a generator. No kettle, just via a coffee maker, which makes tea taste of coffee. No green tea. Breakfast was not included for me but for other guests on a 'package. The hall way carpets were not cleaned once in 8 days

                        The hotel is modern with a good location and good amenities.

                        They need to improve on the drainage, it took a while for the water in the sink and the tub to go down. Also, they can improve on their pillows. It's too small and too soft for my liking.
