Quick Trip to NYC
I am not a traveler who requires a lot of attention. If you don't mind being on your own, then the Melva is good for you. The managers responded to emails very quickly. It's located in a very quiet area of Harlem. It is walking distance from two subways stations (116, 125). It is also walking distance to Central Park, the Apollo Theater and Sylvia's restaurant.

Melva Inn, an Ideal Place
My stay at Melva Inn was excellent! I was not sure about what to expect. It turned out to be one of the best decision I made. The location is ideal for getting around. My daughter and I felt safe and the distant to Columbia University and back is ideal. The location provided access to public transportation, lots of great restaurants & family friendly activities. Wished there was a microwave.

Good 6.0
If you need a place to lay your head that is all it is good for. if you are to pay oer $200.00 you might as well choose something better.. bring your own towels if you plan to stay longer than 2 days.
