About

The Melva Inn - Harlem is located in a turn of the century brownstone in the Mount Morris Park landmark historic district. The Melva boasts original details such as hardwood floors, intricate moldings, and original fireplaces and mantles. We are steps away from Marcus Garvey Park, walking distance from Central Park and Harlem’s famous landmarks; 10 minutes via public transportation to Grand Central Station. Come and enjoy the comforts of our charming Inn. We have five spacious rooms, all with private bathrooms. Each room equip with cable television, wifi, air conditioning, and storage space. The Melva's spacious rooms are named for famous Harlem writers, James Baldwin, Langston Hughes, Maya Angelou, and Zora Neale Hurston.

The place was great! I felt like I had an apartment in Manhattan. I would stay again.

I have been to the Melva Inn twice now. The first time in a larger room with my husband and daughter. The second time just my daughter and I in a single bed room. It is convenient to Columbia University, the subway system, the Triborough Bridge, and the GW bridge. I have always been able to find parking right on the street that the Melva is on.


nice place

good place to be. want to come back with my family


Nice room and location but communication rather difficult

3.2 on September 13, 2015

To get the room key at first was rather difficult because the inn keeper answered slowly or not at all to my emails and there wasn't a telephone number provided. It was really annoying because we had to come to the inn 2 times without meeting anyone there and only received the key on our third try. Room was pretty nice and calm though. Paying cash will save you 3.7% credit card fee.


Perfect Place to stay in New York
