The bed was so comfortable! I slept so good in this bed. There wasn't the usual horn honking or loud external noises, it was a peaceful sleep and I was pleasantly surprised at the quiet ambience of the room at all hours. You can tell that it is an older hotel but it is very clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice and accommodating. So close to Times Square, the subway, and an easy walk to all of Manhattan.

Hotel Mela could use an ice machine in a central location. There is also a need for a mini fridge and a small microwave in the rooms. Overall it was very clean and my wife and I felt safe. The elevators were very timely and the room card/locks worked smoothly. Every staff member responded to each request that we had.

One of the light bulbs of the table lamps went out Monday, the first day we were there, and I reported it that day. I left five days later and no one came to fix it. They had construction going on so there was always noise on top of the usual city noise. The rooms were not clean. There was dust all over the AC and the window sill. The curtains were stained and parts of the cover. The worst of all is the customer service. I didn't even get a "Welcome" from the check-in desk staff. They don't even look at you. They don't smile, they don't ask if you need anything, they just stand there waiting for you to tell them "Good morning, can you help me?" vs. them saying "Good morning, how can I help you?" AWFUL. This was a real turn off. The only thing this hotel has is Location, Location, Location, but there staff is not friendly at all. This was not my experience the six days I stayed there.

Unpleasant odor in room. Guests slamming doors after 1am on a tuesday night. Not suitable for business travelers which explains why most guests were tourists.
