Casa del Balam was the perfect place to take in a lively weekend in downtown Merida. It has an Old World ambience, and is owned by the Barbachano family, whose name is synonymous with Yucatecan history the past 200 years. Our room was spotlessly clean, simply decorated in a traditional way, with TV to entertain the kids, and tall windows... More

We stayed here for a week during a visit to Merida. The courtyard is very pretty and the rooms are basic and clean. Location is also good. Our main problem was with the staff. They were unfriendly and only tried to sell us trip packages. The moment we needed their help with anything else they refused and acted as if... More

On a visit to Merida to see my family who is living a good portion of the summer there, we decided to spend a few days in the Centro at Casa del Balam. After much research, I was very pleased with my choice of this hotel as the location is perfect and most convenient to everything around the main plaza.... More

It is a nice hotel right in the centre of Merida. Free parking behind, fantastic situation. Rooms a bit old fashioned but with style and quiet. Breakfast very good, and very good offer alltogether for the price.

Hotel Casa del Balam is located near Centro in Merida. The hotel lobby is beautiful and if it is any indication I would say it's a nice place to stay. The reason I am submitting this is because on our last night in Merida we ate at their restaurant. We had a fabulous meal of steak and Yucatecan fare. The... More

The rooms are very comfortable and attractive. what I like the best about the hotel was the peaceful, interior patio and courtyard. Merida can very hot, and it was delightful to enjoy an afternoon beverage in this shaded, breezy spot.

We arrived Wednesday night and leave this afternoon. We were here for the Easter break.nice clean rooms, good location...near to everything. Next door to a tour company. I like the fact that the main staff speak English and are able to give tips and ideas about where to go, what to avoid and what to see. Excellent restaurants are all... More

What a great hotel and overall experience me and my wife had. Excellent service by the staff, had personalized attention by the GM Mr G.Canton who told us a little bit about the delightful history around Casa del Balam. Historic sites and Museums are close by not to mention restaurants and recreational parks. We loved it and cannot be more... More

The best things about this hotel are its location (very close to the centre of the city) and the enthusiasm of the service at breakfast. We had a waiter, who looked as if he would long since have been retired in most western countries, for whom nothing was too much trouble. This is a traditional styled hotel rather than a... More

This hotel is a great place to stay in Merida. It is conveniently located within a block of the weekend festivities. The parking lot is well-guarded, safe, and secure. The staff of the hotel is both friendly and helpful, and several of the clerks and staff spoke excellent English. Aside from its clean comfortable rooms, the hotel contains a restaurant,... More
