I returned to stay at Hotel Mela for anither time and it didn’t disappoint. It’s a great hotel for a business trip – great location and walkable to most places. Despite being next to tourist hotspots the rooms are quiet and the staff are all great and so friendly. Only small drawback is the décor is looking a bit tired, but that’s only a small negative amongst lots of positives.
Very disappointed with room size for the price we paid, almost $400 per nite.
There also doesn't seem to be any updates in the last several years when we stayed there before.
We probably won't stay at the Mela again.
