The only thing Gran about this hotel is the name. The lobby and hotel room floors were used to display antiques. There was no where you could sit inside. Wish they had a pool to use after a very hot day sightseeing. The hotel is very old and has seen better times. The location is good if you want to... More

I highly recommend this hotel, but I also recommend requesting a room away from the main street. Friday thru Sunday the street shuts down from 8pm - 1am and is filled with live music and lots of noise. We stayed on the second floor one room away from the main street. I've lived in the French Quarter for years and... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by the Gran Hotel. She is indeed a grand old lady. We were very comfortable and loved being a 1/2 block from the square. We imagined how grand she was 100 years ago. She has aged beautifully inspite of some tough times. We will definitely stay there when we return.

This is a lovely old hotel 1 block off the main plaza. It was wonderful stepping in off the busy streets into the quiet hotel. Rooms are lovely and big; bathroom and shower were huge. Free parking was a plus. One down side...plaza in front of hotel over loaded with street vendors.

Located on a small but very nice plaza one block from Plaza Grande you can not beat the location or surroundings albeit it can be a bit noisy.The rooms are quite long in the tooth but livable The amazing part is that the hotel was built in 1901 and looks like it has never been remodeled. But it also looks... More

Great classic slightly worn hotel at the center of old Merida, literally a block off the main plaza, easy to get cabs, free parking( if you have a car just park it< traffic in Merida is unnerving) Very clean big rooms, tiny baths though, loads of old Mexican charm. Great stay in a great city.

the hotel has a great vibe full of history, a building from the early 1900 still keeps the mystery of old times, the furniture and architecture shows you that there are secrets hidden in every corner. It's in the heart of the city so it might be a bit noisy but you're close to everything, the cathedral, the plaza, restaurants... More

The hotel is very vintage, with signs of past glory all around. Indeed the furnished of the reception and of the rooms seems like from the early 1900. Room are all big and clean and the hot water arrives after some minutes but overall is good. The hotel location is fantastic, it's ok caille 60 right in the city center... More

We stayed at the Hotel El Gran and if you are into beautiful old buildings and antiques like I am, you will love the place. The hotel itself was built in 1901 and has retained it’s charm. It is loaded with antique furniture and much of it is for sale with price tags on it. The items were in excellent... More
