After running around the whole day in Manhattan, I was looking for a hotel to relax and I found Hotel Mela. It is a very convenient solution if you are visiting Midtown. Clean, easy, functional and with a modern design. Located on 44th Street between 6th and 7th Ave, it is in the heart of Times Square and Theater District. This means that numerous classic Manhattan sites are only a walking distance from your room: New York Public Library, shopping on the Fifth Avenue, Bryant Park, Radio City Music Hall, or two subway stops for Central Park. My room was not that big but for a short stay where you spend 90% of your time outdoors, it was totally fine. In New York it’s all about the location, right? The staff was very attentive and warm from the moment I stepped into the lobby. Saju Bistro, inside the hotel will provide you with an eclectic culinary experience. Hotel Mela is not trying hard but it definitely has everything you need for your New York stay.
