Was pleasantly surprised to find many of the "comforts of home" from the U.S.A. while visiting Merida. I've now stayed here on 3 different trips over the past four years. The hotel is located very close to the older historic district where site seeing and shopping is good. The staff at the hotel is very welcoming, service oriented, and many... More

Arrived in Merida at ten thirty in the evening. Needed a central location that wasn't overly expensive. At first glance it looked ok and after a day we decided it was just that ok. Rooms were clean, but very sparse. The noise in the morning was kind of loud as people are leaving. This is because our room had no... More

We arrived at about 5am on the overnight bus from Palenque, 17 exhausted people. They provided two rooms for us to use, as our rooms would only be available they said at 3pm, but in fact they were proved at 1pm. The room we had was quiet, but I am not sure other guests could have been pleased with us... More

The hotel was very well situated, in Merida, a short walk from the main square. The swimming pool was very nice and also quiet. However the rooms are all based around a central courtyard which did get quite noisy on some days. Another source of noise was the tiled floors when people wheeled their suitcase along it. Especially annoying when... More

After staying in charming historic hotels, the Hotel Del Gobernador was a real disappointment -- spartan rooms, no charm, and a very convention/conference/business atmosphere. But, easy to walk everywhere in the historic district, and safe neighborhood.

The staff here are friendly and speak English. The valet was very helpful and spoke good English. Our room was on the inside second floor area and was quiet, average size, very clean with good A/C. We enjoyed our stay here because of its location. It is close to everything, yet you are not in the center of a noisy... More

We arrived in Merida on the overnight bus from Palenque at 6:00am. They only had 2 rooms for our group of 12. We were told our rooms would be ready first noon, then 2:00 and then 3:00, still no rooms. We could see empty rooms all during this time. Go stay anyplace else than Del Governador when coming to Merida.... More

We stayed in this hotel for a night as part of a group tour which included breakfast and dinner, our experience may not reflect individual bookings. The hotel is situated reasonably close to the main square and shops. Although we didn’t need to find parking space I gather there is limited parking in surrounding streets. There are no escalators but... More

We stayed here two separate times on this trip, the first room was on the ground floor and seemed to have a humidity problem. There was a large dehumidifier in the room. Overall I would say the room was just "okay". The second room that we had was on the second floor and this room was significantly better. Both rooms... More

This hotel was better than we expected for the price we paid (under $60.00 Canadian ). As reported in many other reviews location is it's best feature. You might be a little disappointed when you first arrive as the pictures show the hotel when it was in newer and in more pristine condition. With a little work this hotel could... More
